Devon Stars Wars watch
With this Darth-Vader-inspired Star Wars Watch by Devon, the “Force” will definitely be with you. It has over 350 individual pieces, 4 microstep motors, 4 fiberglass-reinforced nylon belts, and 313 electrical contacts. This substantial, iconic and compact timepiece should definitely be on your collectables’ list. The limited-edition timepiece (500 to be produced) encased in DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) steel embodies all that fans would want from a watch from the “Dark Side of the Force.” In fact, modules are even crafted to look like Vader’s helmet and chest-plate computer, to Tie-Fighter-styled accents on the side. This is a symbolic, avant-garde watch, to be sure.
Chopard L.U.C Regulator
Crafted from 18-carat rose gold, this “connoisseur” timepiece has a power reserve of 216 hours. It bears the renowned Poinçon de Genève hallmark and is elegant, stylish and exclusive – while at the same time retaining the visual ease of telling time. Its goldplated minutes hand ticks away across a dial that features individual indicators for seconds, hours, GMT, and a power reserve indicator at the 12 o’clock position. It’s sturdy luxurious, hand-stitched alligator leather strap and an 18-carat, red-gold buckle exudes style and sophistication. It’s also certified by the COSC (the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) that oversees the accuracy and precision of wristwatches in Switzerland.
Girard-Perregaux Minute Repeater Tourbillon with Gold Bridges
Since 1791, traditional Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux has rolled out meticulous creations that have taken both creativity and design to an entirely new level. This 10-piece only, limited-edition timepiece is another skeletonized watch with its intricate workings revealed inside an elegant 18k Rose Gold case. It’s encased with an AR-coated sapphire crystal with an elegant sapphire display back, and can withstand water up to 30 metres. The Rose Gold, arrow-shaped bridges accentuate its flawless design and unique aesthetics. Its alligator leather strap, with an 18 kt Rose Gold triple-folding buckle, is the perfect finishing touch to this fine masterpiece.
Greubel Forsey GMT Black
Made from 95% platinum, this remarkably unique watch has a slightly lighter hue than the previous white gold version. Even with its 24 complications, it does sit snugly inside its black titanium case. The structure – with its three dimensional globe worldtimer, power reserve indicator, detailed worldtime disc and moon indicator (on the back), its Tourbillon and all its other intricate dials – quite cleverly makes use of all available space as efficiently as possible. The GMT Black is powered by two barrels providing a 72-hour power reserve, and boasts a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. The calibre comprises 443 components.
Rotonde de Cartier Skeleton
With an individually numbered movement of 165 parts (19 jewels), this is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. The 45-mm Rotonde de Cartier Flying Tourbillon Skeleton Watch takes wrist timepieces to a new level. Its Skeleton design renders it transparent throughout. It’s coupled with cool blue steel hands that run over the 18k white gold dial – which was crafted using a stencil of Roman Numerals. The crown is made of brilliant Sapphire crystal cabochon, while a white gold buckle culminates at the end of the black alligator strap of this limited edition (100 pieces). With a power reserve of about 50 hours, it’s water-resistant up to 30 metres
