For the men with complexity
ERNEST BOREL JULES BOREL COLLECTION
As the true symbol of the founder’s spirit, the Jules Borel Collection has been lauded for its excellence in all facets. This Jules Borel model, is a rare skeleton design. The open working dial of this watch is the best embodiment of true love. The moderate 40mm diameter case is plated by rose gold, mirror-polished, to echo the glossy sapphire crystal glass. The magnificent dial is surrounded by 11 pieces of octagonal indices set with sparking diamonds that accentuate the dancing couple logo at 12 o’clock. The openwork central dial highlights the unparalleled expertise and quality which the brand has been famous for over the past century. The beautifully engraved bridges set the foundation for the watch’s complexity, the exposed balance wheel continuously whirls to drive the gear chains, moving the feuille hands forward.
For women of classic beauty
The especially dramatic and enduring design concept of the OMEGA Constellation line is characterized by its famous “Griffes”, or claws, and striking dials. This model features a white mother-of-pearl dial decorated with a supernova pattern, marked with diamond-set hour indexes and covered by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The 18K red gold bezel, with its engraved Roman numerals, is mounted on a 27 mm stainless steel casebody, and is presented on a stainless steel and 18K red gold bracelet. This timepiece is powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8520, visible through the transparent caseback.
For those who love classic elegance
In Longines’ purest watchmaking tradition, the Record automatic models combine classic elegance and excellence, aspiring to become the spearheads of the brand. And there is no shortage of arguments for these exceptional timepieces, whose movement includes a single-crystal silicon balance spring with unique properties. A first for Longines, it is certified as a “chronometer” by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), a designation awarded to all of the pieces in the Record collection.
For the man in black
DAVOSA TERNOS PRO BLACK SUIT
Dress code Black Suit – The Black Suit proves that black can be multifaceted: a carefully coordinated combination of different textures makes all the difference here. Indices and hands with satined surfaces and a filling of black Super-Luminova create a subtle contrast against the structured, matt black dial. Despite their black colour, the glossy figures of the minute scale are easily readable against the circular, matted bezel inlay of high-tech ceramic. The DAVOSA Ternos Pro Black Suit is completed by a DLC-plated or pure stainless-steel case, depending on the version, and a metal strap with screwed links, safety buckle and a diving extension.
For the vintage lovers
TISSOT VISODATE QUARTZ
A gently-curved dial mirrors the domed sapphire glass, both designed to showcase the clearly visible date. With faceted hands and indices, attention has been paid to every single detail. Historical Tissot logos on the dial, case back, crown and buckle are a bridge between the past and present. To stay true to previous models, the design of the case and horns remained identical. Additionally, a Milanese or leather strap makes for a stylish statement.
