The haute horologie brand Maitres du Temps’ stunning Chapter Three timepiece, which has a secret user-activated reveal window at 12 o’clock, now gets a few more color options for the discerning watch collector to ponder. A silver or charcoal face now adds to the enviable options.
The always distinctive look of a DeBethune timepiece is unmistakable. This year the house adds a sleek, black oxidized zirconium metal case to its artful mix of fine horology and futuristic design on its DB28. Also, a collection of four limited editions of coin-inpired art watches that feature the 12 Chinese zodiac signs was another highlight at the booth.
Adventure watchmakers Linde Werdelin add a tech-feel moon phase to their iconic Oktopus dive watch for this year. Look for the addition of more nontraditional complications on their dive watches moving forward as well as the integration of new cutting-edge materials, like compressed carbon fiber, across their entire line.
