TAG HEUER CARRERA HEUER 02
A cornerstone of the brand since 1963, the legendary Heuer Carrera takes a sharp turn to mark its 55th spring. This avant-garde chronograph, forever associated with motor racing, wears its DNA with sporting pride.

CARL F. BUCHERER MANERO PERIPHERAL
The CARL F. BUCHERER Manero Peripheral collection, thus far exclusively available in a 40.6-millimeter-wide case size, is now extended by the Manero Peripheral 43 mm. Crafted from 18kt rose gold and coming in at 43.1 millimeters in diameter and 11.2mm thick, this latest version makes for a grander take on the brand’s highly successful CFB A2050 caliber.

HUBLOT BIG BANG UNICO RED MAGIC
HUBLOT’s R&D department and Metallurgy & Materials laboratory has developed a new process of creating bright colored ceramic. It took Hublot four years to develop and industrialize the process, which involves using heat and pressure in a way that sinters the ceramic without burning the pigments. This new material is much denser and therefore harder and more resilient than conventional ceramic.

VOUTILAINEN 217QRS
The Voutilainen 217QRS features a wide range of uniquely-Voutilainen stylistic elements both in its exterior as well as its movement design. Its 39 millimeters-wide and 11.5 millimeters-thick case is crafted from platinum, white gold or rose gold to create extremely limited series of just 10 pieces in each material.
