Grand Seiko SBGC229 Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Limited Edition
The NISSAN GT-R 50th Anniversary model pays homage to the race-car version of the Skyline 2000 GT-R, and is available until the end of March 2020. The watch design takes inspiration from the GT-R’s iconic blue color, known to car enthusiasts as "Bayside blue", which is reflected in the blue of the ceramic outer case. This ceramic and the inner case made by light high-intensity titanium protects the watch from scratches while fitting comfortably on the wrist and delivers 10 bar water resistance. The NISSAN racing livery with its distinctive white stripe is reflected in the white crocodile strap and the silver white color of the dial, creating a perfect aesthetic harmony with the blue of its ceramic case. The Spring Drive movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back and the GT-R anniversary emblem in 18k yellow gold is set into the oscillating weight to symbolize the watch’s enhanced accuracy level of ±0.5 seconds per day. The stopwatch measures elapsed time for up to twelve hours and is the perfect caliber with which to celebrate the twin anniversaries of Spring Drive and the NISSAN GT-R.

Bell & Ross BR-X1 R.S. 19
The ergonomic design and ultra-functionality of Bell & Ross’ BR-X1 gets the R.S.19 treatment, making every second count. With every BR-X1 chronograph, Bell & Ross has pushed with the limits of extreme micro-engineering, stripping the movement, dial, case and pushbuttons down to their purest functionality: raw performance at its most uncompromising and streamlined, which is reminiscent of Formula 1®.

Hublot Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph
In 2017, with Ferrari design objectively at one of its all-time highs, Ferrari has finally conceived its first ever wristwatch. They have done so in partnership with Hublot, and the result of their collaboration comes in the unusual form of the Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Tourbillon Chronograph. It is a watch that, by definition, has tested the horological prowess of the designers and engineers of one of the world’s leading car manufacturers. The highly architectural and bridged design of the watch is far from being over-the-top and overdesigned. It’s aggressive where it needs to be without overcompensating, is lightweight and tough (at least when you consider the Titanium and carbon models), and is also a testament to Hublot’s triumph of being a serious manufacture in both design and movements.
