Watches in Winter

Bell & Ross

In honouring the stars which so faithfully guided early maritime travellers to expand men’s horizons, Bell & Ross has created the BR S Diamond Eagle, the latest in a line of elegant, contemporary watches aimed at sophisticated women. Taking unmistakably celestial features, the BR S Diamond Eagle is available in two versions, one of which boasts a bezel set with 66 white diamonds; a prestigious and elegant watch turned into a contemporary piece of jewellery. Calibre BR-CAL.102 powers this ultra-feminine collection exudes a cosmic, yet cosmopolitan appeal, which is also water resistant to up to 100 metres.


With a timeless look and a triple timezone chronograph, the Chronoliner from Breitling has asserted itself as the authentic flight captain’s watch. It offers a blend of luxury and performance in a red gold limited series that will appeal to aviation aficionados, whether in aircraft cockpits or cabins. The 18K red gold case carries a bezel in ultra-hard, scratch-resistant high-tech black ceramic – announcing this Chronoliner as a special model that combines materials and colours in an original way. The touch of originality is further affirmed by an exclusive rubber strap picking up the design of the steel mesh Breitling Aero Classic bracelet. The gold and black contrast may also be extended by opting for a leather or crocodile leather strap.

Vacheron Costantin

With its contemporary design, its distinctive character and its excellence attested by the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva, the Quai de l’Île collection embodies an avant-garde aesthetic vision of watchmaking traditions. The name refers to the historical site of Vacheron Constantin. A symbol of Geneva’s watchmaking excellence and home to the famous 19th century master cabinotiers, this centre of outstanding craftsmanship spread the fame of the manufacturers far and wide. Located at the heart of Geneva, this crossing place between the left and right banks of the Rhone has been transformed into a bustling urban hub. Imbued with this same spirit of innovation preserved by history, the Quai de l’Île collection vividly reflects the art with which Vacheron Constantin reinterprets a technical and aesthetic legacy enriched by 260 years of uninterrupted history.
