An exceptional blend of art and watchmaking is witnessed in Hublot’s Classic Fusion Orlinski Titanium timepiece. In addition to the brand’s expertise in producing luxury watches, the artsy touch of pop artist Richard Orlinski, whose signature comes alive in the faceted case and dial, comes to make this watch a sight for sore eyes.

Although classic by nature, Audemars Piguet’s Code 11.59 Selfwinding watch is far from being conventional by design. It merges the octagonal middlecase with the round case and pushes the limits by challenging the traditional production of timepieces.

Last but not least, Hautlence’s Vagabonde Tourbillon reinterprets the TV screen shape in its 5N red gold case – constituting a timepiece of rare elegance that stands out with its unconventional simplicity.

In de Grisogono’s New Retro Tourbillon watch, Fawaz Gruosi introduces a modern approach to tradition by “squaring the circle” of the classic case to give it a modern touch fit for the sartorial man while preserving the timepiece’s timeless elegance.

Armin Strom’s Dual Time Resonance Sapphire is a masterpiece in its own right. Its dazzling transparent sapphire crystal case takes transparency to new heights, offering a 360o view of the 2 movements it houses. Isn’t it a real treat for stylish watch enthusiasts?
