Loyal to its creative tradition, Jaquet Droz continues
to engage its watch models in a fascinating dialogue
with contrasting materials and colours. In harmony
with its established mineralogical expertise, Jaquet
Droz has created the THE ECLIPSE ONYX,
which boasts a moon-phase complication
and a dial carved from a black onyx disc. The
mesmerising colour of the onyx is accentuated
by the rhodiumed metal which forms eight
stars and the moon. An overshadowing
racket-shaped piece, also cut out from
black onyx, further enhances this strikingly
contrasting effect, and gives splendid
depth to the watch face. Combining the
power of metal and mineral strength, as
well as a Jaquet Droz 6553L2 calibre,
double barrel movement and a 43mm
case, the Eclipse Onyx subtly asserts
its evocative power tinged with a
decidedly masculine aura.
First introduced as a woman’s line in 2010,
Movado has added the newest model to its
acclaimed Concerto collection, and this time
it’s the men that will be looking stylish this
fall. The MOVADO CONCERTO for men is
a sophisticated stainless steel automatic time
piece with quartz models which boasts elegance
in masculine proportions. The modernity of
the Concerto’s round 40mm polished case is
accentuated by a smoothly contoured bezel
framing a black Museum dial, which in turn is
accented by a discreet minute ring, silver-tone
metallic hands and a concave signature silver dot at
12 o’clock. Crafted in solid stainless steel the smoothe,
comfortable bracelet is designed with wide, sculpted
middle links in alternating brushed polished finish, and
a butterfly deployment clasp.
Issued in three 1,000-piece collections,
SUPERSPORTS is clearly cut out
for achievement and performance. Its
COSC-certified automatic movement
powers a central 60-minute counter, an
original and extremely practical function,
while a rotating pinion bezel activates the
variable tachymeter with its circular slide
rule – an exclusive Breitling feature serving
to measure average speed, whatever the
time elapsed, the distance covered or the
speed reached. The “dashboard-style” dial
is enlivened by a flange and counter rings
in white, blue or orange, and is hosted by a
49mm stainless steel case faced by cambered
anti-reflective sapphire crystal.
The fall sees some
of the world’s top
timepiece marques
producing distinctly
masculine watches
that promise to stand
the test of time.
Roger Dubuis celebrates the fifth anniversary of its iconic
Excalibur collection with the creation of the highly exclusive
sumptuous black case. This exquisite time piece is limited to a
maximum of eight sets worldwide and combines Roger Dubuis’
three most sophisticated movements: minute repeater flying
tourbillon with instantaneous in-line perpetual calendar, minute
repeater flying tourbillon and double flying tourbillon. Most
beautiful among them, the Excalibur Automatic Minute Repeater
Flying Tourbillon features a perpetual calendar, dual time zone, and
is wound with a double micro-rotor in platinum. All three models are
presented in a sculptural black lacquered collector case, 60 cm high,
lined with black carbon and fully equipped with two watch-winders, a
touch screen and a tool drawer.
In 1964, Jack W. Heuer, the son of Charles-Edouard Heuer,
launched Tag Heuer’s first Carrera chronograph, named for the
grueling 3,300 kilometre Carrera Pan Americana race across
Mexico. The latest Carrera incarnation, the CARRERA
EDITION 41MM has been made to mark his birthday
momentous milestone. The large opening with counters at
three and nine o’clock comes directly from the original design,
in a sun ray grey dial with the Heuer logo and touches of red.
In addition the time piece boasts Jack Heuer’s signature,
together with the Heuer Family coat of arms, which dates
from the 15th century.
For much of its history, Hamilton has found inspiration in the skies
and has a long list of aviation timepieces in its product logbook. The
latest, the dynamic HAMILTON KHAKI X-PATROL, is a highly
sophisticated chronograph that features the brand’s new H21
caliber movement, with its excellent accuracy and extended power
reserve. A unique feature, the time piece provides conversions for
a wide variety of metric and imperial measurements, while three
round chronograph discs, gravitating to the left-hand side of the
dial, keep track of hours, minutes and seconds, operated via
push buttons at two o’clock and four o’clock. In style
terms, black or silver dials, with contrasting reflectors, are
perfectly complemented by a black leather strap with
fine white stitching, a sporty black rubber attachment,
or a metal bracelet. Its aviation theme is omnipresent, even
on the back of the watch, which integrates a
propeller-inspired design, offering regular glimpses of the
automatic chronograph movement in action.
