The new Excalibur Huracán from the Geneva watchmaker Roger Dubuis is entirely black.


Excessive, rebellious and iconoclastic, it exhales a muscular power and elegance mastered by Roger Dubuis.


With its 360° oscillating mass, imitating the speed effect of the Huracán’s wheel, this sporty, ultra-high-performance watch inspired by the world of automobiles reflects the technical excellence of visionary engineers and exceptional watchmakers. The most exciting way to experience hyper-watchmaking.


Égérie moon phase jewellery, Vacheron Constantin, price on request.

The diamond-paved Égérie moon phase model by Vacheron Constantin is inspired by the world of Haute Couture.


Its 37 mm 18-carat white gold case sparkles under the lights of 292 diamonds and its dial unfurls its concentric circles under a rain of 510 diamonds like a precious embroidery. Its bracelet is a supple and flowing bracelet studded with 588 bright diamonds in five rows.


On the other side of the case, the sapphire dial reveals the refined applied Haute Horlogerie endings, hand-made Côtes de Genève and a 22-carat gold oscillating weight in the shape of a Maltese cross. A jewellery piece that distills time under a shower of diamonds and reveals Vacheron Constantin’s vision of femininity.


T Touch Connect Solar, Tissot, about 950 euros.

Tissot T Touch Connect Solar is the first connected watch from Swatch Group.


Designed by Tissot, it combines the useful with the pleasant: noble materials (ceramic bezel, sapphire crystal and titanium case) and advanced features (weather, temperature, step counter, alarms, wrist calls).


At the crossroads of haute horlogerie and high-tech, this smart watch runs on solar energy thanks to Swiss technology, and can offer up to six months of autonomy in connected mode and ten years off-line.


J12 X-Ray, Chanel, 650.000 euros.

Chanel’s J12 X-Ray watch abolishes black, transcends white and surpasses color by choosing transparency.


With a case and bracelet made entirely of sapphire crystal, hands set in white gold and a dial paved with twelve suspended diamonds, this exceptional watch is a first in watchmaking’s history.


Luminous, precious and refined, it reveals its watchmaking clarity and the purity of its forms with complete transparency.


Santos-Dumont XL, Cartier, from 5.650 euros.

The new Santos-Dumont by Cartier comes back in force with a 46.6×33.9mm extra-wide version.


An XL wristwatch, larger and tighter on the wrist, powered by a hand-wound 430 MC mechanical movement.


Roman numerals, sunlit silver dial and square shape remain: this new Santos-Dumont innovates while perpetuating the heritage of a great watchmaking classic. A must.


Big Bang MP-11 Red Magic, Hublot, 85.000 euros.

The new Big Bang MP-11 Red Magic from Hublot is the very first high-tech ceramic in red colour.


Featuring an innovative and spectacular construction, its transparent dial reveals the manually-wound skeleton HUB9011 calibre with seven barrels coupled in series, based on an extremely rare system in watchmaking of the ” worm screw” type.


A world exclusivity protected by three patents, and a strong, audacious and innovative design, in direct line with Hublot’s spirit.


G-shock Dream Project pure gold, Casio, 70 000 euros.

Casio’s G-shock Dream Project, reference G-D5000-9JR, is all gold.


Like any other G-Shock, it withstands the “Triple 10”: a pressure of 10 atm, i.e. 100 meters deep in the water, but also a fall of 10 meters high on a hard ground, and its battery lasts 10 years.


This “dream project” took several years to develop. Cast in 18-carat solid yellow gold, its spectacular aplomb and its iconic tooling undoubtedly make it the rarest model of all the watches produced by the company.
