And if you're in the market for a classic, Longines delivers a timeless piece with a new soul. Girard-Perregaux sets hearts aflutter with a bronze rendition of the Laureato, which has been registering a rebound of interest from watch enthusiasts in recent years. Read on for more details.

 

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Pirelli Monotourbillon

In celebration of Pirelli's 150th anniversary, long-time partner Roger Dubuis has created a stellar tourbillon watch in pure white Mineral Composite Fibre, a material that is 13 per cent lighter than SMC carbon that translates into greater comfort on the wrist. The open dial reveals the monotourbillon display at 7 o'clock with a power reserve (a whopping 60 hours) indicator resembling a fuel gauge at 9 o'clock. 

Certified by Poinçon de Genève for exceptional finishing, it features an interchangeable strap, crown, and bezel that can be executed in just one click. Limited to eight pieces.

Girard-Perregaux Laureato 38mm Copper

The beloved model with an octagonal bezel now comes with a striking copper dial decorated with Clous de Paris motif. The pattern captures light in a manner that makes it appear vibrant. It is powered by a self-winding calibre with pink gold oscillating weight that is visible on the caseback. 

Purnell x Ballon d’Or Sapphire Limited Edition

Limited to only three pieces, the Purnell x Ballon d’Or Sapphire was created to celebrate its official partnership with the 66th edition of Ballon d’Or. The case is crafted entirely in transparent sapphire crystal, the better to enjoy the spinning pink gold football, which houses the flying tourbillon, that makes one complete rotation in 30 seconds.

Longines Record Heritage

The Record collection, beloved for its vintage aesthetics, welcomes its first chronograph piece. The design is resolutely classic, from the golden  Arabic numerals complemented with overlaid indexes to the leaf-shaped hands. The 40mm steel case is fitted with slim rectangular chronograph pushers. Inside, the movement is modern complete with a silicon balance spring and a precision that is guaranteed by COSC.

Urwerk Cooper Jacoby x UR-102

Created to celebrate its 25th anniversary and in support of the Swiss Institute, an independent non-profit contemporary art institution in New York, the Cooper Jacoby x UR-102 revisits Urwerk's first timepiece and reinterpreted by rising American artist Cooper Jacoby.

Dubbed the "reloaded" version, Jacoby explores the notion of graduation by using thermochromic pigments that react to changes in temperature. As such, the unique time display in both analog and digital changes colour tones in response to thermal variations. Only one of this incredibly unusual timepiece is produced.
