Chopard Happy Sport 25mm

Dancing diamonds dazzle in a reimagining of the Happy Sport watch, now available in its smallest-ever size and with additional customisation options.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow

Nothing screams summer quite like kaleidoscopic gemstones – just ask Hublot. The Maison captures the carefree feeling of summer in a whimsical watch that counts rubies, tsavorites, sapphires and amethysts among its 290 gemstones. Set in 18-carat pink gold, the 45mm creation doesn’t restrict colours to the face; the alligator-and-rubber strap is washed in rainbow hues and fastened with a 30-gemstone clasp. Learn more

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface Tourbillon

Inspired by the Maison’s first tourbillon wristwatch, the Reverse Tourbillon, Jaeger-LeCoultre reveals a pink gold timepiece that highlights the Maison’s expertise. The duo-face concept presents two dials of contrasting aesthetics: the first a traditional timepiece, while the second boasts an alternative timezone and day-night indicator perfect for the frequent traveller.

Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers Dual Moon Grand Complication

Vacheron Constantin honours the majestic nature of the moon in a one-of-a-kind double-sided watch with 11 horological complications including a minute repeater, perpetual calendar, moon phases for both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, and sky chart complete with constellations. The moons take pride of place on the dial, boasting a diamond-cut finish to mimic the imperfections of its surface and the appearance of twinkling stars. Turn the timepiece over and you’ll find a dazzling constellation atop a celestial backdrop. Learn more

Chopard Imperiale

The lotus flower partakes in a sun salutation every morning, opening its petals for sunrise and closing when the sun descends. In fact, Egyptian legend states the sun rises and sets from a lotus itself. Chopard captures this daylight dance through a limited-edition timepiece adorned with sapphires, diamonds and ethically sourced 18-carat rose gold. Hand-engraved petals appear like lace against the backdrop of an ever-changing sky, created by artisans using a rotating disc that introduces nightfall using sapphires and greets dawn with diamonds.
