Time to Express Yourself: Sophisticated & Personalized

Unique, Bespoke Pieces That Standout

Pushing the boundaries of watchmaking, today’s top brands have produced models that live up to this very statement. Here are several that fit that bill in truly stylish and fashionable form, intended specifically for those with impeccable taste.

Girard-Perregaux Quasar Infrared Tourbillon with Three Bridges

Energy, vitality, and prosperity – these are the common traits associated with the colour red, which is an auspicious tone in Asian culture. Girard-Perregaux has taken this vibrant hue and created a timepiece that pays homage to the Lunar New Year celebrations. The Quasar Infrared Tourbillon with Three Bridges is housed in a clear sapphire crystal case, adorned with red accents. The translucent 46mm case, made from a single sapphire crystal disc, affords the brand to showcase its ability in the art of precision engineering to its most minute details. With the Girard-Perregaux Quasar Infrared Tourbillon with Three Bridges, wearers will not only get to admire the aerial views of the sapphire Neo Bridges but also the seemingly floating tourbillon positioned at the base of the dial.

Jaquet-Droz Magic Lotus Automaton

Jaquet-Droz has made mechanical automaton movements its calling card, ever since its founder pioneered the field in the late 1700s. That legacy lives on in the new Jaquet-Droz Magic Lotus Automaton – one of the most sophisticated automata wristwatches the brand has produced. Combining artisanal decoration with miniature automata, the timepiece arrives with a hand-engraved and hand-painted white mother-of-pearl dial along with a black onyx subdial. Presented with an 18-karat gold case, a simple push of a button triggers the hand-wound mechanical automaton movement, bringing the dial to life. Over 500 components are tasked with animating the pond, carp, and lotus flower on the dial. Ultimately Jaquet-Droz Magic Lotus Automaton does not just tell the time but also a story.

Parmigiani Fleurier Hijri Perpetual Calendar

When discussing high horology, the Parmigiani Fleurier Hijri Perpetual Calendar will surely be a highly engaging topic. The first Hijri perpetual calendar wristwatch has received the prestigious innovation prize from the Grand Prix D’Horlogerie de Genève in 2020. Essentially an Islamic lunar calendar for the wrist, the timepiece is a marvel of ingenuity. Inspired by pocket watch featuring an Arabic calendar, the Parmigiani Fleurier Hijri Perpetual Calendar is presented in a 44.6mm platinum case with a slate dial and rotor in platinum. It displays the hours, minutes, and date in Arabic numerals with the name and length of the months and years in Arabic calligraphy. The impressive piece also supports a moon phase in an aventurine sky situated at 6 o’ clock along with an impressive power reserve of 48 hours.
