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.
Zenith presents the Elite 6150 model equipped with a new Manufacture movement: the Elite 6150 calibre. This new mechanical automatic movement is the contemporary version of the famous Elite base movement developed in the early 1990s - an ultra-thin calibre that earned the title"Best Movement of the Year "when presented at the Basel Fair in 1994. In response to the demands of our times, the Zenith engineers and developers have chosen to enhance its performance, as well as its versatility by means of a minimum 100-hour power reserve, a broader 30 mm diameter, along with a central sweep-seconds hand. They have also been careful to preserve the exceptionally slender nature of a movement measuring a mere 3.92 mm thick! Driven by the new Elite 6150 calibre, the Elite 6150 model is distinguished by its classicism and its understated elegance. Its slim 42 mm-diameter case frames a pure, cambered dial punctuated by sleek, graceful hands. A model clearly built to last.
Nautically inspired, the Velsheda watch is named after the "J Class" yacht that was built in the 1930s and is still racing today. While the Piccadilly case suggests early marine chronometers, it is the dial that first captures our attention.

As befits such a virtuoso of complicated timepieces, this new watch by Kari Voutilainen incorporates a second time zone with 24-hour indicator and a retrograde power-reserve indicator.
In creating its first connected chronograph, Breitling has applied a new philosophy placing the smartphone in the service of the watch so as to enhance its functionality and conviviality. The instrument of the future.
Steel and diamonds: a daring and modern alliance that gives rise to a perpetually reinvented icon – the Happy Sport. It now returns to the scene with a smaller, elegant dial with a self-winding movement, an accomplishment on both an aesthetic and technical level.
