Girard-Perregaux Laureato Automatic
Girard-Perregaux celebrated its 225th anniversary with a limited edition run of its 'Laureato' watch from 1975, later adding it to the main collection. Defined by the original's unique octagonal bezel, this 42mm model has been manufactured in Switzerland from stainless steel with a sleek integrated bracelet strap and is set with a blue Clou de Paris dial. It functions on a calibre GP01800-0013 automatic movement with a 54-hour power reserve.
Hermès Timepieces' 'Montre Arceau'
Hermès Timepieces' 'Montre Arceau' watch is modelled after the iconic original created by Artistic Director Mr Henri d'Origny in 1978. Engineered with a Swiss-made H1837 automatic movement - one of the house's first in-house calibres - this stainless steel reference has signature sloping Arabic numerals and stirrup-inspired asymmetrical lugs. It's fitted on a supple blue alligator strap to round out the classic feel.
Cartier Santos de Cartier
Cartier announced the re-launch of its 'Santos' line at SIHH 2018 and it has been adding new styles to the collection ever since. Featuring the same defining characteristics as the iconic 1904 original, like the square dial, Roman numbers and screws in the bezel, this stainless steel model is updated with a midnight-blue gradient dial and 'QuickSwitch' interchangeability system that lets you swap out the bracelet strap for a leather one. It's been manufactured in Switzerland and is powered by an automatic movement.
Laurent Ferrier Square Automatic
Understated is the operative word when it comes to Laurent Ferrier's 'Square' watch. The original debuted in 2010, and has since been praised for its visual subtlety and technical functionality. This edition is crafted from stainless steel in the model's signature cushion-shaped case, which frames a satin-brushed blue-toned dial - a favourite finish of the watchmaker for the way it pronounces the gleam of the hands and indices. The Swiss-made FBN 229.01 automatic movement implements a silicon escapement to optimise winding, and minimise future upkeep.
Piaget Polo S Automatic Chronograph
Described by the brand as the ultimate "expression of relaxed elegance", Piaget's 'Polo S' watch references the refined lifestyle associated with the equestrian sport. Featuring both satin-brushed and polished finishes, this stainless steel model houses a 1160P automatic movement that's visible through the sapphire-glass back. The sleek grey chronograph dial is etched with a horizontal guilloché pattern, while the Super-LumiNova®-coated hands ensure visibility, even in low light.
Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 PAM01389
This version of Panerai's titanium 'Luminor Submersible' watch is the first anti-magnetic model - it's engineered with a soft iron inner that resists magnetic field interference for precise timekeeping. Powered by the house's calibre P.9010 automatic movement, it has a black dial detailed with luminescent indices that provide excellent legibility beneath water and is bordered by a unidirectional rotating bezel detailed with a 15-minute scale.
