IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Tribute to Mark XI” (Ref. IW327007)
IWC – Mark XI still flying high

What to say about the Mark XI, except that it is for me one of the very iconic pieces by the brand, beautifully re-interpreted without being too much, including the faux-patina, and taking many cues from the original model in a restrained dimension. All I know is that I want one. But hurry up as many military watches lovers do!

In the metal: The Cartier Drive Extra-Flat

Cartier is the undisputed Master of non-round watch cases. Every Cartier watch has a “je ne sais quoi” of unmistakable style that sets it apart, and many have become legends. The moment I set eyes on this Drive, I could see it was of that ilk. This is indeed a pure and timeless design. Not just a watch. A Cartier.

Hermès Arceau TGM
Hermès – Classicism in XL size

Hermès is the epitome of luxury à la française, and the Arceau is a classic in the brand's inimitable style - though not classicism in the way a watchmaker would see it. The new size makes this even more evident. The two dials (and straps) are wonderful "in the flesh". I prefer the hazelnut version, which also houses the manufacture movement.

Cartier, a century of design

An affordable alternative for one of the most iconic designs of all time, inspired by French tanks in the Great War and a classic for women and men alike. Now in stainless steel with automatic winding, and of course equipped with its signature white dial displaying Roman numerals.

IWC Pilot's Watch Chronograph Edition “Antoine De Saint Exupéry”
IWC – Spirit of Saint-Exupéry

The IWC Pilot Chronograph is one of the brand’s icons. This Saint-Exupéry edition further reinforces its strong identity and professional look through a subtly iridescent chocolate dial, mirrored by the seriously stylish dark brown Santoni calfskin strap, reminiscent of Saint-Exupéry’s flight suit.

SIHH Jaeger-LeCouletre Duometre Chronograph
Jaeger-LeCoultre – Two into one

Jaeger's impressive Dual-Wing concept is – yet another – feat of high horology and a true differentiator that rightly sets the “Grande Maison” apart. My preference would probably go to the Chronographe with its jumping seconds. A feast for the eyes whenever you look at your watch!

SIHH Van Cleef and Arpels Automate Fee Sakura
Van Cleef & Arpels – Fairy blossom

The know-how that goes into creating such a dial is truly impressive. From enameling to stone-setting, the skills of the in-house artisans are on full show. The result is a masterful high jewelry watch that is not meant to be discrete, in the unique Van Cleef way.
