For the first time, the workshops of Jaquet Droz have opted for a woman's watch all in steel. In pairing this metal with a new timepiece, it contrasts with the radiant dark blue mother-of-pearl and the light of the stars. The mother-of-pearl is delicately worked and cut into a single disc in an array of hues: royal blue, cobalt or indigo, as the movement of the wrist changes the fall of the light. The eight stars, a signature of the brand, are scattered across the dial in a spectacular display, much like the beauty of a night sky.
The Ceraline Saphira beautifully reflects the characteristic style of the traditional Swiss brand Roamer of Switzerland, which has remained unchanged since 1888: it captivates with its classically elegant design, reliable functions as well as the Swiss Made quality. With the Ceraline Saphira, Roamer proves that finely balanced details are highly effective. The watch displays its charms through the composition of its materials: polished stainless steel, smooth sapphire crystal and matt ceramics. The casing and bracelet complement each other in perfect harmony.
Remaining faithful to the Florentine goldsmith’s tradition and at the same time, breaking out in a aesthetic revolution: Ponte Vecchio Gioielli, leader in jewellery’s design, speaks to women in a new language of essentiality, expressed by the light emerging from diamonds, white and yellow gold (18 KT) and by the colour of natural stones cut to size, as citrines, amethysts, aquamarines, peridots, rubies, and sapphires.
This collection has been created to celebrate the 90th anniversary of foundation of Moraglione, in 1922 and it is inspired to original designs taken from the historical archives of the Company. It has been reviewed and restyled according to the contemporary trends but still maintaining its original charm and fascination. The small bow is reproduced in white gold, white diamonds and black rhodium coating that gives and antique look to the jewellery. Versions in rose gold and brown diamonds are also available. The ribbon is an evergreen design that is always fashionable and dressy.
The driver's watch was first used in an era of fearless racing heroes who gripped the wheel knowing just how much every single second on the track counted. This race against time was the inspiration for the driver's watch, a timepiece that could be read whilst leaning into the curves as well as it could down the straights. Meccaniche Veloci loves speed in all its forms and has chosen to base its new Chrono Driver on the legendary "driver's watch".
During the last two years Linde Werdelin has tested and developed new materials and composites that best suit the purpose of each Linde Werdelin timepiece. The new SpidoLite II Tech is a result of this experimental approach. Linde Werdelin launches the SpidoLite II Tech in two series of 75 pieces each. The main development of these two series is a new case in Alloy Linde Werdelin “ALW”, carbon, ceramic, gold and a ceramic coating for titanium.

The Okies is typical of Ingersoll design, characterised by the use of open-balance wheels and glass case backs to add intricate detail to bold German design.

Bayco presents, The Stellar Green, a very rare 20 carat old mine Colombian emerald set in a delicate and intricate diamond and diamond micropav ring. Old mine Colombian emeralds were mined in Colombia over 200 years ago. The Stellar Green was re-cut to an old French cushion cut to bring out the spectacular brilliance of the old mine material. The inspiration behind this ring was to bring together the old world feel of the emerald within the construct of a modern, yet still classic setting, to create the perfect balance between old world and modern luxury.

Sun sparkling off the mirrors of cars parked in the stillness of early morning, snow-insulated streets. A gleaming new world where the hazy whiteness of winter blends into the rosy pink of a new day in the frozen city… A moment suspended in time.
