OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M
With as many 14 variations the Seamaster Professional Diver 300M on its 25th year has something for everyone. Featuring a ceramic bezel with the diving scale in Ceragold™ or white enamel, the 42mm watch with a beautifully designed dial is available in black, blue and a PVD-treated chrome colour. Besides it has the date window positioning and the new patented cone-shaped helium escapement valve at 10 o’clock, which allows the wearer to operate it underwater with more ease. Remember the watch debuted on the wrist of Pierce Brosnan in the James Bond movie GoldenEye.
TISSOT T-Race MotoGP Automatic
An outstanding chronograph watch, the 45mm stainless steel cased, black and rose gold PVD coating watch infuses a number of motorbike racing-inspiring elements like the colours of MotoGP, the brake disc anticlockwise rotating bezel, and the oscillating mass of the automatic movement.
JAEGER-LECOULTRE Reverso Tribute Duoface Limited Edition
Set in a rose gold case and measuring 49.4mm by 29.9mm, it pays tribute to its origin—equestrianism. A watch made for polo players, who could flip the case on its back so as to not smash the glass with their polo mallets, this edition of Reverso comes fitted with a leather strap made by Casa Fagliano, the Argentinian manufacturers of premium leather goods, specialising in equestrian boots. It has a slate grey dial with hours, minutes and seconds, while the other is silvered with hours, minutes and a day-night indicator.
RAYMOND WEIL Freelancer RW1212 Skeleton
Housing the brand’s first in-house movement—the automatic calibre RW1212—for the first time in an open-worked display, the 42mm skeleton dial watch framed by the hour-marker ring comes in three versions. There are versions with full black PVD-treated steel and steel and gold cases feature gold detailing, while the all-steel version has accents in blue. The former two come with black and brown leather straps respectively, while the latter comes with a steel bracelet.
GRAHAM Chronofighter Superlight Carbon
A 47mm chronograph watch it weighs just 100g, thanks to its Superlight carbon case. To be precise, carbon has been used for the dial, trigger lever, bezel, buckle superlight and the iconic Graham trigger crown. The watch draws inspiration from the vibrantly coloured racing tyres spotted in Formula One racing.
