Summer is always a great pretext to ditch monochrome in favour of brighter, sunnier shades. With more and more watchmakers lavishing colour on their dials, the opportunity is too good to miss.
A year after its official launch, Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet continues to evolve with five new self-winding date, hour, minute and second references and five new self-winding chronograph models, with complex lacquered dials and a palette of deep colours.
The Endeavour Flying Hours is the first watch from H. Moser & Cie to show the time using a satellite system of discs, without straying from the clean aesthetic for which the brand is known.
Cartier has imagined this watch as a fleeting image, glimpsed then gone. A twist of the wrist and a multitude of tiny gold beads appear on the dial where they form a stylised panther. Another twist, and the feline disappears.
Elegance and sobriety prevail in this Saxonia, first presented two years ago by A. Lange & Söhne. It returns with a case in white gold or pink gold, a solid silver dial, precision moon phases and a large date.
