Arnold & Son Perpetual Moon Gold
Perpetual Moon is the quintessence of refinement, with its rich textural variation and the generous 29 mm diameter aperture looming over the dial that houses the shimmering 18-carat gold engraved moon floating in a blue guilloché night starry sky.
Audemars Royal Oak Offshore Self-Winding Chronograph

Eberhard & Co. Chrono 4
Chrono 4 is the first chronograph in the history of watchmaking whose
counters are arranged in one row. It’s a genuine innovation both aesthetically
and functionally, and it’s a real revolution also from a technical point of view. So
far, the world has never seen a dial whose minute, hour, 24-hour and small-second counters were arranged horizontally abreast of one another.
Hublot Big Bang Unico King Gold

Omega Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award”
The 42 mm case in stainless steel is presented on a blue nylon fabric strap, which features the trajectory of the Apollo 13 mission on the embossed lining. The silver dial has blue PVD angle-shaped hour markers and hands, as well as an embossed silver Snoopy medallion on the blue subdial at 9 o’clock.
Panerai Submersible Carbotech
The Carbotech™ case, crown-protecting device and unidirectional rotating bezel ensure extreme lightness and resistance. Carbotech™ has an uneven, matt black appearance, which varies according the cutting of the material: the result is that each watch is unique.
Patek Philippe Aquanaut Ref. 5168G
The very embodiment of modern sporty-chic, the men’s white gold “Jumbo” Aquanaut reasserts its young, dynamic style in a new khaki green design. This audacious choice of color evokes a sense of adventure and far horizons. The rounded octagonal case and bezel combines polished and satin finishes.

Thanks to this injection of carbon, TitaCarb® offers an exceptional tensile strength of 370 MPa, (3,700 kg/cm2).
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Sottozero
The skeleton single flying tourbillon is part of the highest complication in the world of Haute Horlogerie.
