Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix Automatic Complete Calendar

"They have a talent that no machine could ever replace," says Vacheron Constantin of its master watchmakers - expertise has passed down from generation to generation since the maison was founded in 1755. Manufactured in Switzerland, this polished 18-karat pink gold 'FiftySix' watch features luminescent hands and indices, a calendar with displays for date, day and month and a precision moon-phase indicator. It's fitted on a leather strap and has an exhibition case back revealing the calibre 2460 QCL/1 automatic movement that's engraved with the Hallmark of Geneva.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon

An "alchemy between past, present and future," is what characterises Jaeger-LeCoultre watches. Timepieces like this 'Master' will strike a chord with purists for the discreet elegance and intricate technicality of its tourbillon complication - each one takes a seasoned horologist up to 18 months to assemble by hand. Housed in solid 18-karat rose gold, this piece's 11.3mm depth belies the brand's complex automatic 982 calibre - you can view all 262 parts at work through the sapphire case back. Make it your choice for formal events - the brown alligator strap will look smart and sophisticated with a suit.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Huracán Automatic Skeleton

This particular edition of Roger Dubuis' 'Excalibur' model takes visual cues from the V10 engine beneath the hood of Lamborghini's Huracán - notice the angular bridge, which resembles the powerful supercar's strut bar, and the rim-shaped rotor at the back. Crafted with an 18-karat pink gold and black titanium case, this 45mm timepiece has a skeletonised dial that reveals the powerful RD630 calibre movement, which is made up of 233 components and has a 12° angled balance wheel and 60-hour power reserve. Presented in a carbon fibre-panelled presentation box, it's fitted with an Alcantara® and rubber strap that's extremely durable.

Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe Chronograph

Parmigiani Fleurier's 'Kapagraphe' 48mm tonneau-shaped integrated chronograph watch is made from matte-grey titanium that's lightweight and durable, and has an attractive laser-cut skeleton dial inspired by a car's grill. Visible through the exhibition caseback, the COSC-certified PF362 calibre automatic movement oscillates at frequency of 5 Hertz, or 36,000 vibrations per hour - setting it apart from similar models in its class - and boasts a 65-hour power reserve. It's incredibly limited, with only 28 pieces manufactured globally.

Cartier Santos de Cartier Skeleton Hand-Wound

When Mr Louis Cartier designed the first wristwatch back in 1904 for his friend and Brazilian aviator Mr Alberto Santos-Dumont, he changed the course of horology forever - the iconic style is still just as sophisticated and popular more than 100 years later. This skeleton version is powered by a mechanical movement with manual winding that's visible through the sapphire crystal glass at the front and back. It has a stainless steel case with a matching bracelet and comes with an alligator strap that can easily be swapped in and out without any tools.

Vacheron Constantin Malte Hand-Wound

As Switzerland's oldest watchmaker, Vacheron Constantin's timepieces are rooted in tradition but designed for a contemporary appearance - this 'Malte' reference, for instance, has a dark-grey dial and matching alligator strap that make it feel sleek and modern. Designed in a tonneau shape that sits comfortably on the wrist, it's cast from polished 18-karat white gold with Roman numerals and a small seconds subdial. It's powered by a reliable Swiss-made calibre 4400 AS hand-wound movement with a 65-hour power reserve, the workings of which can be seen through the transparent case back.
