In the industry of haute horlogerie, it has always been about precision and meticulous craftsmanship, about starting conversations with artists, designers and artisans from other fields to expand horizons. By employing surprising materials and mediums, watchmakers are exploring innovative methods without losing sight of where everything began. Through contemporary techniques, they strive to recreate the splendor of historical masterpieces, while showcasing an overflowing creative energy that is vibrant and exhilarating. 

Royal Demeanor 

In celebration of Royal Oak Offshore’s 30th anniversary, Audemars Piguet presents a new Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph, which reimagines the limited “End of Days” edition released in 1999. The tribute holds great significance as it not only commemorates the instant success achieved through the collaboration with Arnold Schwarzenegger, but also marks its entry into the public eye for the first time. Ever since, the Swiss watchmaking brand has been setting the trend of creating special edition novelties. In black ceramic, the new Offshore features a dial decorated with the new-generation Mega Tapisserie pattern and illuminated with touches of yellow on the tachymeter scale, hour markers and watch hands – perfectly echoing with the original 1999 edition in black and yellow. Showcasing the beauty in balance, while the applied gold AP logo is set at 12 o’clock, the three black counters grace the dial at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. Meanwhile, the novelty houses Audemars Piguet’s latest selfwinding chronograph movement – Calibre 4401 featuring a column wheel and flyback function – which allows the wearer to reset and restart the chronograph with one single press of the push-piece. The various refined decorations of the movement – Côtes de Genève, circular graining, sunray finishing, circular satin finishing, polished bevels – are all visible through the crystal case back, paying homage to the collection that has been challenging limits for 30 years, nonstop.

Love of Time 

Continuing its brand spirit – the art of fusion – Hublot once again teams up with acclaimed French sculptor Richard Orlinski to present the Classic Fusion Chronograph Orlinski. Perfectly blending the love for time and art into one, the novelties can be paired with either a titanium bracelet or a smooth black rubber strap. Both timepieces feature Orlinski’s signature multi-angular facets with structures highlighting sharpness. In matte titanium, the 41mm case houses a self-winding HUB1153 calibre and comes with a three-dimensional titanium bracelet – composed of 83 components – showcasing a distinctive angular link design that refracts light to emit a radiant glow. Comfortable without losing aesthetic, the micro-blasted titanium material softens the edge of the metal and exudes a sense of mystery. The matte black dial is adorned with metallic hour markers and dauphine-shape hands, while the artist’s minimalist and sleek signature codes can be found upon close inspection. By infusing contemporary art into haute horlogerie, a graceful sports watch that is one-of-a-kind is thus born.

Mystical Profundity

To celebrate the timeless elegance of the Van Cleef & Arpels classic – Ludo bracelet – Ludo Secret introduces two new high jewelry watches crafted in innovative proportions, capturing the essence of the iconic collection. While rose gold is complemented by diamonds of pink sapphires to showcase the excellent artisanship of the renowned jewelry house, the intricate setting technique pays tribute to the exceptional traditions of high jewelry. In a serpent-like brick pattern, the meticulous ensemble recalls a belt, as in the original creation. Each piece is set by the hands of the maison’s gemologists to deliver a delicate and flexible design reminiscent of contemporary meshwork. Van Cleef & Arpels is also unveiling another ingenious creation inspired by the 1941 Ludo Hexagone Macaron secret watch. The dial is hidden behind a motif adorned with Mystery Set emeralds, a setting technique that highlights the dazzling and flawless color effect and sets itself as the ultimate testament to exquisite craftsmanship. Slightly rounded, the motif complements the diamond-studded curves of two concentric arcs, while the bracelet is composed of a meshwork of yellow-gold hexagons and embellished with star-set emeralds to add a touch of technicolor beauty. Mastering the intricacies of these refined novelties requires exceptional skills and expertise, which today, only a handful of gemologists and jewelers possess the secret to achieving such fine crafts in the high jewelry industry.
