Explore your favourite cities around the world with Patek Philippe World Time Ref. 5321J that displays the time in 24 cities from Buenos Aires to Bangkok simultaneously, with day and night display. This favourite travel function is elevated with a striking cloisonné enamel dial centre depicting the continents of America, Europe and Africa.
When it comes to long drives in comfort and style, the choice of the Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is, honestly, perfect. Inspired by the spirit of Gran Turismo, an endurance race featuring high performance luxury cars, it boasts a lightweight 3D Carbon case and an open dial that reveals the Unico HUB1281 calibre, the first time the in-house movement has appeared in a Classic Fusion. Decorated in Ferrari red and the famous prancing horse, the strap is a combination of rubber and Schedoni leather, recalling the seats of the Maranello historical race cars.

If you’re planning to trade the urban jungle for a natural one, the Citizen Promaster 30th Anniversary pilot’s watch is packed with useful functions to tackle the elements. With a rugged case crafted in hardy, scratch-resistant Super Titanium, the watch is equipped with the Eco-Drive movement fitted with satellite GPS that also helps to correct the calendar and time almost instantaneously. Large luminous indexes and hands allow you to keep track of local and home time easily. And its energy source is light, so there’s no worry about running out of battery.
MING 18.01 Abyss Concept is understatedly cool and that’s because it’s actually designed as a dive watch but doesn’t immediately strike one as one. Equipped with a rotating bezel with the crucial first 15 minutes clearly marked like any dive watches, it has been tested to be able to withstand up to 1,250m of depth pressure. Its simple design – no indexes, numerals or counters – and blue accents, however, makes it a chic companion that you can go for a swim and a leisurely stroll on the beach with.
