Watches

 

ARCADIA – AC01
Claude Sanz, President 
of Bunter and a fervent watchmaking devotee, 
has revisited the existing tradition of 1950s Arcadia models. In this first 275-piece limited edition, avant-garde materials, visible screws, hidden pushbuttons, 
and a multi-layer dial blend harmoniously with the original rounded curves incorporated within 
a cushion-shaped case.
Price guide, 
US$5,000–10,000

MAURICE LACROIX – Masterpiece Régulateur Roue carrée
Maurice Lacroix has taken a new angle on time by displaying the hours by means of a geometrically open-worked square wheel at 12 o’clock. Driven by another wheel shaped like a cloverleaf, it turns regularly, indicating the hour by means of a raised corner on its centre square. 
Limited to 99 watches.
Around US$12,750

DE GRISOGONO – Meccanico dG
De Grisogono has introduced its very first creation with mechanical digital display. With a movement comprising no fewer than 651 elements, the Meccanico DG features two time zones, one in an analogue display, the other in a mechanical digital display. A great tribute for the 15th anniversary of the company. Limited edition of 177.
Around US$158,000

CLERC – Odyssey Silicium
Powered by Calibre C201 incorporating a regulating organ made from silicon, this model has a sliding system that protects the crown, pushers, and the mechanism for activating the inner rotating bezel. The three-dimensional dial reveals the balance-spring and balance through an aperture at 10 o’clock, protected by a blue-tinted sapphire crystal.
Price range, US$5,000–10,000

MB & F – Horological Machine 
№4 Thunderbolt
The sleek aerodynamic lines of the titanium and sapphire body conceal two parallel 
barrels that transfer their power to two identical turbine-shaped pods that display 
the functions. The cockpit in the centre 
reveals the balance, open-worked in the middle to display most of its oscillating 
wheel, a micromechanical panorama 
with sophisticated finishing.
Around US$158,000

CELSIUS X VI II – LeDIX Origin
Each time you open the LeDIX Origin mobile phone, the patented mechanical Butterfly winding hinge makes a characteristic clicking sound as the energy is transmitted to the watch mechanism. Presented with an array of accessories – docking station, hands-free kit, etc. – the LeDIX Origin is limited to 18 pieces in Grade 5 titanium with ebony inserts.
US$275,000

MARVIN – Malton 160 Cushion Kaki
This offbeat and unexpected 160 Cushion Kaki model, 
an anniversary edition commemorating the brand’s 
160th anniversary, is inspired by the Malton Spéciale issued in 1906 and features bold khaki tones, a cushion-shaped case, a guilloché dial, and a vintage strap.
Around US$1,475

HAMILTON – RailRoad
Creating a skillful reinterpretation of a pocket-watch classic that 
was successful at the end of the 19th century, this line comes 
in three sizes: 38, 44, and 46mm. A rail-inspired tachometer dominates the centre of the dial on the 46mm Hamilton RailRoad model, a chronograph powered by a brand new Swiss-made automatic Valgranges A07-211 movement, which Hamilton was 
the first to use.
Around US$1,200.

RECONVILIER – Hercules Golf-Master
By combining a GPS application with its mechanical movement, the Hercules Golf-Master can measure the distance to the edge or centre of the green in metres or yards. A push on the button also gives a digital display of the time. However, with its Rotar reversible mechanism, these advantages can be concealed and the instrument transformed into a classic analogue timepiece.
Around US$8,000.
