Jaeger-LeCoultre Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 Quadriptyque

IWC Schaffhausen introduced two new editions of its Big Pilot’s watch—the TOP GUN Edition “Mojave Desert” and the Perpetual Calendar TOP GUN Edition “Mojave Desert.” With the watchmaker’s first-time utilizing sand-colored ceramic for a timepiece, both models have been imagined in the dusty hue and feature a classic look comprised of a deep brown dial, a textile-inlay rubber strap, and sand-colored hands denoting time within cleanly marked Arabic numerals and second notches.

Sleek, modern, and responsible, Panerai’s Luminor Marina eSteel watch is the first to be made from the specially made recycled eSteel. With more than half of the watch’s weight made from recycle-based steel alloy, the 44mm automatic mechanical model comes in three dial colorways (Blu Profondo, Verde Smeraldo, and Grigio Roccia), which are each accompanied by a matching strap in sustainably made PET material.

Watchmaking history was made by Jaeger-LeCoultre this week with the release of the world’s first-ever timepiece with four faces. The latest installation in the Hybrid Mechanica series, the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 Quadriptyque displays a total of eleven complications on four different time displays, which unfold from the slender, rectangular Reverso body. Accompanied by a deep blue alligator strap, the white gold timepiece reveals functions like hours, minutes, a tourbillon denoting seconds, Draconic lunar cycle, month, year, moon phases from both hemispheres, and more. 

Louis Vuitton Tambour Carpe Diem

Louis Vuitton’s Tambour Carpe Diem transforms the historical body of the jacquemart timepiece into a modern watchmaking masterpiece. A one-of-a-kind watch, this Tambour model makes a statement in 18-karat pink gold, featuring a dial displaying a tiny hourglass next to a monogrammed skull entwined with a snake, hand-crafted with painting by Anita Porchet and engraving done by Dick Steenman. Completing the contemporary twist on an ages-old design, the face is set with a single brilliant-cut diamond and accompanied by a black alligator strap.
