Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye


OMEGA Hour Vision Blue Unveiled earlier this year, the Omega Hour Vision Blue is a limited edition of the Hour Vision watch, produced in support of ORBIS International’s efforts against preventable blindness in developing countries. At least US$ 1 million from product sales will be donated to ORBIS. Sleek in design, the watch features a 360-degree see-through body, 41mm in diameter and constructed of stainless steel. Transparent sapphire crystal with anti-reflecting coating is used on the case back and side of the watch, allowing a clear look at the revolutionary mechanism within, the Co-Axial calibre 8500. The dark blue colour of the specially designed dial is attention grabbing but also versatile as it is not excessively bright. The 18 Ct white gold facetted hour, minute and seconds hands are coated with white Super-LumiNova, a powerful substance rendering markings still conveniently readable in low- light conditions. The timepiece has a sturdy, black leather strap that incorporates an insert to avoid strain and cracking of the material.


Retails at approximately US$6030


Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye Small Second This new addition to the Cat’s Eye collection maintains the characteristically elegant and feminine oval design of the dial but introduces a small second hand at the nine o’clock position, decorated


Piaget Phoenix


by a sunray motif. This detail will most likely appeal to those who prefer a more ornate style for the small second rather than the plainer clock shape typical of the rest of the collection. The watch can be selected in white or pink gold for the casing, and white or black mother-of-pearl for the dial. The GP3300 automatic mechanism can be viewed through the sapphire case-back, along with the oscillating, gold motif engraved with the letters ‘GP’. The precious, set stones that mark each hour index are stunning, and the numerals are sculpted in gold wire cut. A bright white,


alligator strap with a folding or pin buckle completes the watch with a bold twist. Retails at approximately US$31,200


Piaget Dragon


Piaget Exclusive Dragon & Phoenix Series In December 2011, Piaget will unveil a collection of around 20 new models designed to coincide with the celebration of 2012 as the Chinese Year of the Dragon and tap into the growing market for luxury watches among China’s elite. The collection caters for both men and women and feature dials illustrated with an image of either a dragon or a phoenix, two important symbols in Chinese mythology. The Altiplano Phoenix has a feminine design incorporating an 18-carat white gold case set with 78 brilliant-cut diamonds, and a white alligator leather strap. The cloisonné enamel dial is decorated with a white, gold and blue detailed phoenix and the decision not to mark any of the hour indexes gives the watch a striking simplicity. The Dragon version of the Altiplano features an illustration more ferocious in appearance and comes with a grey alligator leather strap. Chrome in colour and featuring a flashy, flip-open case wrought with a phoenix or dragon figure, only eight of the Altiplano Double Jeu watches will be released worldwide. There will also be just eight Emperador XL watches released, featuring a rectangular, black dial that contrasts favourably against the golden engraving. The Limelight Twice is double-sided and has a clasp set with 332 brilliant-cut diamonds.
