OMEGA Seamaster Diver
This eye-catching Seamaster has achieved its own individual personality thanks to a dark laser-ablated bezel and golden-ringed subdials. The result is a watch like no other in the Diver 300M collection. Set on the watch’s 44 mm 18K Sedna™ gold case is a laser-ablated black ceramic bezel ring with a polished diving scale. The uni-directional design is contrasted only by a single dot of white Super-LumiNova at 12 o’clock. Presented on a rubber strap, the watch features a screw-in caseback with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Through the glass, you see the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9901 inside – with its special luxury finish of a rotor and balance bridge in 18K Sedna™ gold.

Richard Mille 52-06 Tourbillon Mask
The new RM 52-06 tourbillon is a watch that leaves free rein to the imagination when it comes to metaphysical interpretations; but in terms of technicity it’s all about razor sharp logic. The curvaceous lines of the iconic symbol enthroned in the heart of the tourbillon movement make the RM 52-06 one of the most enigmatic calibres. Does one see a luchador, a kabuki mask, a superhero or even a gladiator helmet? Each eye will see in the RM 52-06 its own reflection, pretty much as a Rorschach test. Made of PVD treated grade 5 titanium or white gold, the mask is fully integrated within the movement. The precise opposite of a purely decorative element, it is, on the contrary, an integral component, serving as a wheel train and tourbillon bridge. Its similarly cutting-edge tripartite case will be available in the materials now synonymous with Richard Mille, namely Carbon TPT®, which will doubtlessly be the most enigmatic incarnation of the RM 52-06, plus various colors of Quartz TPT® that will steal the show with their pop vibe.
Four different 18-piece limited editions available exclusively at Richard Mille boutiques in the Americas. Price available upon request; www.richardmille.com; www.hingwaleejewelers.com.
Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Retrograde Day-Date
As original as it is technically complicated, the double retrograde display of the Patrimony Retrograde Day-Date is a delight to observe during the transition from the 31st of one month to the 1st of the next, or from Sunday to Monday. At 42.5mm in diameter and just 9.7mm thick, this horological wonder bears the imprint of the talented watchmakers within Vacheron Constantin who have so skillfully preserved the pleasing proportions of the Patrimony collection. Purity meets elegance in this beautifully nuanced interpretation of the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony collection. An apparently classic yet intrinsically complex watch offering peerless refinement, intended for the most expert and discerning connoisseurs.
