Modern and dynamic – two words that perfectly describe the latest addition to Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS by Breguet. The combination of the titanium case and the blue guilloche dial makes this a truly elegant timepiece.
From the deep blue dial featuring a wave pattern executed by hand on a rose engine, the eye is then drawn to the consummate crown with wave-shaped embellishments and a distinctive ‘B’ that stands for Breguet. The reverse side of the watch reveals the exceptional design of the rotor, the shape of which calls to mind a ship’s wheel. Meanwhile, the bridges of the movement, reminiscent of a ship’s deck, are decorated with Geneva stripes and enhanced with a guilloche technique that can be admired through the sapphire-glass caseback.
In the rich saga of TUDOR historic chronographs, reference 7169 – better known to afi cionados as the TUDOR “Montecarlo” chronograph – is an absolute icon. Since its launch in 1973, it has been produced in a number of different versions, the most fascinating featured distinctive touches of blue, grey and orange. This rare, historic chronograph was produced for only a few years. Today, it is greatly prized by collectors and is steadily increasing in value. To revitalize this legendary chronograph – imbued with the spirit of chic, sophisticated holiday destinations of the 1960s and 1970s, and reminiscent of carefree Mediterranean warmth and glamour – TUDOR has decided to reinterpret it and unveil the new TUDOR Heritage Chrono Blue.
In the 19th century, when explorers roamed the oceans, the pocket chronometer was the captain’s watch, a mark of his rank both on shore and off. Ulysse Nardin’s pocket chronometers were among the most coveted – prized by naval officers and merchant captains the world over.
Now comes a new generation chronometer, made for the modern era: the Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur. Named for the small, fast ships of that earlier era, whose agility ensured they easily outmaneuvered bigger ships, this is a timepiece for contemporary explorers. A lighter, thinner version of the iconic Ulysse Nardin Marine Chro-nometer, the Marine Torpilleur is made for a young, less formal age.
That vibrant marine history led to the creation of the iconic Marine Chronometer, the ultimate expression of technical performance and beautiful design. Resolutely modern, bold and brilliant, the Marine Torpilleur joins the long line of illustrious Marine Collection chronometers. It may be designed for the city, but its heart – like that of every true adventurer – belongs to the sea.
As technical as it is fun, it is water-resistant to 300 meters and beats to the rhythm of a self-winding Chopard movement. Combined with a large 40 mm steel case, the unidirectional rotating bezel with its blue-turquoise coloring is inspired by azure blue shades and brightly colored corals, while featuring a wave-shaped design for easier handling under water. The screw-down crown is marked with a C and the case-back is engraved with a wave motif. The intense blue dial brings to mind the ocean depths and is enhanced with a white minutes hand hemmed with blue that glows at night or in dark, deep waters. The hour-markers and hours hands also illuminate with a blue hue, with all other indications required for diving in green. Five moving diamonds, like oxygen bubbles or tiny sparkling fish, swim around this beautiful aquarium.
Inspired by Bond’s rank and regalia, OMEGA has created the "Commander’s Watch". The timepiece salutes the ensign colours of the British Royal Navy, with touches of white, blue and red found throughout the watch, creating a suave and stately look. The 41 mm stainless steel case features a blue ceramic bezel with a Liquidmetal™ diving scale and red rubber covering the first 15 minutes. The NATO strap is blue, red and grey and follows a 5-stripe pattern with a polished buckle.
The dial of the watch is polished white ceramic and includes 12 blue indexes, the word "Seamaster" written in red and blue skeleton hands. Unique features include the 007 gun logo counterweight on the central seconds hand and the number 7 in the date window which is coloured red, while all other numbers are blue. On the wave-edged caseback, the stripes of the Commander’s naval insignia are featured on the rotor of the new OMEGA Calibre 2507. There is also a central 9mm "bullet" design which adds to the 007 touch. The stainless steel model is limited to just 7,007 pieces.
OMEGA watches were once issued to military divers around the world. In fact, the brand delivered more than 110,000 watches to Great Britain’s MoD in World War II. It is entirely plausible that Commander James Bond would have been issued with an OMEGA watch.
