Owners of the new Submersible Tourbillon GMT Luna Rossa Experience Edition PAM01405 will be invited to an experience befitting the upcoming America’s Cup, and Panerai’s partnership with the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team during the Barcelona finals. This is the first Submersible in 45mm to feature a tourbillon complication and incorporate Carbotech™, a composite material based on carbon fibre. The patented tourbillon completes a horizontal rotation every 30 seconds instead of every 60 seconds. Limited to 20 pieces. POA, panerai.com

 

The Ulysse Nardin Freak S Nomad is a true marvel that fuses avant-garde technologies with traditional hand craftsmanship. This new 99-piece 20-patent limited-edition watch, still without dial, hands, or crown, is a testament to the brand’s commitment to innovation. The hand assembled movement incorporates silicon balance wheels and hairsprings, DIAMonSIL-coated escapements, a double oscillator linked by a vertical differential, and a Grinder® automatic winding system. The rotating hour disc behind the movement is hand-finished with a diamond guilloché pattern, adding a touch of elegance to its innovative design. POA, picotandmoss.co.za

 

The Portugieser Eternal Calendar, IWC’s first “secular” perpetual calendar, highlights the exclusivity of the manufacture’s offerings. Recognising the lengths of the months, adding a leap day every four years, and considering the Gregorian calendar’s leap year exceptions, this masterpiece is designed to skip three leap years that would normally occur at the end of a century over a 400-year timespan. Its moon phase display is so accurate it will only deviate by one day in 45 million years. POA, iwc.com

 

Hublot’s Big Bang MP-11 14-Day Power Reserve Water Blue Sapphire honours the brand’s commitment to R&D and technical excellence through its movement and exterior. The MP-11 features a sculptural seven-barrel movement – coaxial and vertical to maintain a conventional height of 10.9mm – with a two-week power reserve. The barrels are not integrated into the thickness of the movement but are set in front of it at 90°. The water-blue sapphire of the case is based on a custom chemical formula and exclusive transparency index, polished to perfection. POA, murdocks.co.za, hublot.com

 

Beauregard’s inaugural men’s watch, Ulysse, embodies the seamless fusion of haute horlogerie and haute joaillerie. The reveal follows several years of research and a three year development phase. It is powered by Vianney Halter’s renowned automatic movement with mysterious winding. The handmade haute joaillerie dial made from 18kt rose gold and 68 flawlessly hand-polished aquamarines is crafted to resemble a stained-glass window. Limited to 10 pieces. POA, beauregard.ch
