Marvellously durable and scratch-resistant, the velvety black TZP ceramic boasts an extremely fine grain

Game changer – Reinterpreting the iconic Rieussec monopusher chronograph launched in 2008, Montblanc’s Star Legacy Chronograph Rieussec is a fitting homage to its namesake French watchmaker. It was Nicolas Rieussec who invented the first inking chronograph in 1821, developing the construction to more accurately measure the running times of individual horses at a horse race.

In loving memory – A. Lange & Söhne pays tribute to its beloved founder, Walter Lange, who passed away in 2017. Joining the German manufacture’s family is the 1815 Homage to Walter Lange, featuring one of his favourite complications: the jumping sweep seconds hand, referencing a 150-year old invention developed by his great-grandfather, Ferdinand Adolph Lange, and first implemented in a timepiece crafted by his grandfather, Emil Lange.

Ladies night – Arguably one of Richard Mille’s sexiest timepieces, the RM 07-01 in gem-set black ceramic and red gold is a welcome addition to the manufacture’s repertoire.

Birthday delights – Celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, IWC Schaffhausen will unveil a special Jubilee collection. The 27 limited editions include models from the well-loved Portugieser, Portofino, Pilot’s Watches and Da Vinci families.
