Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sky Dweller
The 2014 edition of the Sky Dweller comes in Everose, yellow or white gold. In a case of 42mm sits a self-winding movement, with a bi-directional perpetual rotor. With a 24-hour display on an off-centred disc, the watch also indicates time at a second time zone, through an independent rapid setting of the hour hand. With the date at three o’clock, under the Rolex Cyclops lens, the month is indicated through apertures along the entire circumference of the dial (here, it shows August, at eight o’clock). This timepiece is waterproof down to 100metres.
Omega Seamaster 300
A remake of a 1957 classic, this timepiece is available in 950 platinum, grade-5 titanium, stainless steel or Sedna gold. In a case of diameter 41mm, this watch features the Master Co-Axial calibre 8400/8401 movement by Omega, and offers water resistance down to 300metres, making it the ideal timepiece for a diver or anyone who works underwater. The sand-blasted black dial features hour markers coated with ‘vintage’ Super-LumiNova, which emits a blue light, as do the hands. The dial is complemented by the polished black ceramic bezel ring decorated with a Liquidmetal diving scale.
Patek Philippe Men’s Grand Complication 5140P-013
Set in a platinum case, 37.2mm in diameter, is an ultra-thin self-winding movement that offers the functions of a perpetual calendar, day, date, month, leap year by hands, moon-phase and 24-hour indications on the ebony-black sunburst dial. The caseback of this piece is in sapphire crystal, revealing the grand complication movement inside, but is also interchangeable with a full black caseback. Water resistant to 30metres, this watch comes with a black alligator leather strap.
This new version of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer comes in steel and gold, bolder than any other form of the combination, given the burst of blue on the dial and bezel. Behind the dial is a calibre 5 automatic TAG Heuer movement, while the watch also features a ceramic bezel around the dial, and a helium valve on the case at 10 o’clock, which is used to release extra pressure. That and its 500metre water resistance make this watch ideal for extreme water sports or adventure activities.
Set in a stainless steel case of diameter 42mm, this watch houses a quartz movement behind its sapphire crystal glass and black dial. The orange accents, on its indexes, chronograph counters, typical, T-shaped Tissot seconds hand, and tachymeter scale bezel, are complemented by the orange stitches on the black leather strap. An interesting feature of this timepiece is the texture on the dial. A watch for FIBA (the International Basketball Federation), its dial texture subtly reveals the outline of a basketball. If you look closer between 10 and 12 o’clock, you’ll see the lines of the basketball.
