Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute
Jaeger-LeCoultre's 'Reverso Tribute' watch is part of the 'Casa Fagliano' collection, created in partnership with the esteemed Argentinian bootmaker of the same name - together, the two houses combine their contributions to the world of polo. Crafted with the signature Art Deco-inspired geometric case, this stainless steel piece has a navy sunray dial and slim rhodium-plated markers that are purposely minimal so the second-counting subdial appears to be floating. It's fitted with a tonal alligator strap that slowly moulds to your wrist over time for the utmost comfort. The famed flip mechanism, which is made up of 55 parts alone, allows you to conceal the face with one swift motion.
IWC Pilot's Watch Spitfire
Based on the design of IWC's 'Mark 11 Navigation' reference originally produced for the British Royal Air Force, this 'Pilot's' watch is the first timepiece to feature the new IWC-manufactured 32110 calibre. With a modest 39mm stainless steel case, it has an easy-to-read black dial and army-green webbing strap inspired by the interior controls of a Spitfire's cockpit - the plane is also engraved on the case back.
Bremont Project Possible Limited Edition GMT
Bremont's ambassador Mr Nirmal Purja made mountaineering history in 2019, when he completed the watchmaker's Project Possible, a challenge to summit the world's 14 tallest mountains in just six months and six days, breaking the previous record of almost eight years and smashing six world records in the process. To pay homage to this outstanding achievement, Bremont has released this watch, limited to only 300 pieces. The robust bronze and titanium 43mm case houses a calibre 11 ¼''' BE-93-2AE automatic chronometer movement and a blue dial with Super-LumiNova®-coated hands and indices. The exhibition case back reveals the heights of the 14 mountains, all engraved on the movement rotor in the order that Purja completed them.
Panerai Luminor Marina PAM01661
Panerai's distinguished 'Luminor' collection dates back to 1949, when the house introduced a revolutionary new luminous material for its watches, allowing clarity in any light condition. This 'Marina' edition is crafted with a hardy Carbotech™ case that feels surprisingly lightweight on the wrist and a black Sandwich™ dial that gives the high-visibility numerals and markers an engraved appearance. It's powered by a robust Swiss-made P.9010 calibre movement and has a water-resistant Sportech™ strap traced with blue stitching to complement the markers.
Laurent Ferrier Square Automatic
Laurent Ferrier's watch is impeccable in appearance and craftsmanship. It's built with an in-house calibre FBN 229.01 automatic movement that is, perhaps, one of the truest modern interpretations of Mr Abraham-Louis Breguet's escapement. It's a joy to admire through the exhibition case back, along with the Côtes de Genève finishing. The black opaline dial is kept minimal to best complement the pillow-shaped stainless steel case.
Girard-Perregaux Laureato Automatic
Girard-Perregaux's 'Laureato' watch was first showcased in 1975 and defined by its sport-inspired case, which features an octagonal bezel and integrated bracelet. This one has been crafted in Switzerland from stainless steel and set with a black Clou de Paris dial and coated hands for optimum visibility. The calibre GP01800-0025 automatic movement has an impressive 54-hour power reserve and is water-resistant to 10 bar.
