The most stylish wristwatches that you’ll want to wear this Singles’ Day 2021
A Lange & Söhne Cabaret Tourbillon Handwerkskunst
The semi-transparent enamelling that coats the elaborate dial of the new Cabaret Tourbillon Handwerkskunst really sets this timepiece apart. Limited to just 30 pieces worldwide, this ticker is inspired by the very first tourbillon watch that came with a stop seconds function. Presented by A Lange & Söhne in 2008, the watch allowed the wearer to stop the balance wheel inside the rotating cage and restart it again simply by pushing the crown.
Franck Muller Vanguard Skeleton Sapphire
One of Franck Muller’s bestselling models, the Vanguard is easily recognised by the watchmaker’s distinctive Cintrée Curvex case, which is arched and often houses highly complex movements. The latest model to be added to Franck Muller’s Vanguard line, the pictured Skeleton Sapphire watch features a skeletonised dial that’s visible through sheets of clear sapphire crystal. A hand-wound, in-house movement, which is splashed with colour, comes with seven days’ worth of power reserve.
IWC Schaffhausen Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition AMG
IWC Schaffhausen has collaborated with longtime business partner Mercedes-AMG to create the new Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition AMG. Powered by an in-house automatic column wheel chronograph movement, this 43mm watch comes with an eye-catching carbon fibre weave dial that pops against the matt grey finish of its Grade 5 titanium case. Worn by brand ambassador and professional racing driver Maro Engel, this watch is strapped onto the wrist with a playful black calfskin leather strap embossed with a woven patten to match the dial.
FP Journe x Francis Ford Coppola Only Watch FFC Blue Prototype
Never one to disappoint, FP Journe has unveiled a groundbreaking prototype watch in collaboration with American film director Francis Ford Cappola to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the high-end watch manufacture’s automatic Octa Calibre 1300. Made from Tantalum and rose gold, and powered by 396 different components, the FFC Blue Prototype took two years to conceptualise and a further seven years to develop, and it tells the time using an automaton in the shape of a hand.
Chanel J12 Pink Blush Limited Edition
Over the years, Chanel has produced numerous high-end watches but it’s the fashion house’s iconic J12, a watch crafted out of ceramic, that continues to make headlines. This year, Chanel has added a limited-edition powder-pink model to its roster of J12 timepieces, which comes with a white-lacquered dial adorned with Arabic numerals.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura
The innovative Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura by Jaeger-LeCoultre combines top-end watchmaking expertise with the very best of jewellery-making. The dial, crafted from inky lapis lazuli, sports a moonphase display that’s etched out of milky white mother-of-pearl. A splash of diamonds adorns the watch face, surrounding polished gold constellations that map out the night sky in mesmerising detail.
Cartier Tank Cintrée Limited Edition
The Cartier Tank Cintrée Limited Edition has been released in celebration of the Tank Cintrée’s 100th birthday. A limited edition of 150 numbered pieces were up for grabs but, incredibly, all sold before the watchmaker’s launch, proving how serious Cartier collectors can be about getting their hands on special-edition pieces. A faithful tribute to the original model, the Tank Cintrée Limited Edition has an elongated and curved design that allows the case to seamlessly sit on the wrist.
Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Dragon
Jaquet Droz is no stranger to depicting wildlife on its famously artistic dials. But with the Petite Heure Minute Dragon, the Swiss watchmaker has gone one step further in its collaboration with fantasy illustrator John Howe, who is best known for his work on Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film series. A breathtakingly beautiful dragon has been micro-painted, with the help of the conceptual artist, onto two limited-series watches.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra
Ten 38mm and nine 41mm watches have been added to Omega’s popular Aqua Terra line, six of which are luxury editions. All new models come with a small seconds subdial at six o’clock, which is encircled by an applied subdial ring made out of 18-karat Sedna gold, an alloy exclusive to Omega that blends gold, copper and palladium.
