Polished black ceramic 45mm case, black ceramic bezel, Rubinacci “Pinstripe” dial and Rubinacci “Pinstripe” strap

I can’t get enough of the newest design by Lapo Elkan, the Italian entrepreneur whose immense style had him appear in Vanity Fair’s Best Dressed ‘hall of fame'. The dial and straps are made with materials from Rubinacci, the Italian tailoring house. Just touching the watch feels amazing. As Elkan himself says ’it has a powerful charm’.
Limited Edition in red gold

Apart from looking incredibly cool (nobody’s going to argue with you on this front) this limited edition watch will walk through the door before you do in terms of getting noticed as well as it’s advanced time keeping. We loved that it has Breitling’s in-house Caliber B04, a user friendly dual time-zone as well as an ultra hard scratch resistant ceramic bezel to keep it’s good looks in place.
Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Double Tourbillon watch
45 mm, manual, platinum, leather
The Rotonde de Cartier is an exceptional timepiece as it showcases the most advanced and sophisticated movements in Cartier watchmaking - the minute repeater, a central chronograph, flying tourbillon, and astroregulateur. But go like the speed of lightening if you want to be one of the lucky 30 to own this limited piece.
Platinum, Blue Enamel and Leather by CHANEL Watches

The ‘jumping hour’ (see the number 5 at the bottom of the face which changes on the hour) and the retrograde minutes counter are the two fine watchmaking complications which make this new Chanel model so appealingly special. In fact for all your watch geeks out there, the Monsieur watch is the first to hold their in house movement. Revolutionary!
