The Luminor Chrono Flyback Verde Militaire: a Panerai exclusivity
Luminor Chrono Flyback Verde Militaire - © Panerai
Embodying Panerai's heritage in maritime watches, the Luminor Chrono Flyback is the latest addition to the Chrono Complicazioni segment: a family of watches characterised by its combination of high-tech materials and complex calibres. And always at the forefront of creative watchmaking. We like the matte dial of this chronograph associated with the polished steel case, the contrast and functionality of the colours with the white Super-LumiNova™ numerals and hour markers that emit a green halo and the minute and second hands in orange, the P.9100 movement, and its flyback function that allows the hands to be reset with a simple press of the pushbutton. A very sporty and elegant look with the military green alligator strap with tone-on-tone stitching, enhanced by the satin-finished steel trapeze buckle. We are at the crossroads of Italian design and Swiss watchmaking know-how, for a limited edition of only 100 pieces.

Bell & Ross revisits and embellishes its Horolum with its BR 05 version

Five years after its BR 03-92 Horolum, the great watchmaking house releases a new version that is more mineral (inspired by concrete), more urban and more minimalist. All in microbiliated steel, it keeps the iconic "round in a square" case with screws at the four corners, but the angles have been rounded for a more elegant result. We like the matte and mineral aspect, very contemporary while giving a real impression of purity. A purity that can be found in the graphics of the dial where only the essential indications have been kept. This BR 05 Horolum model uses the most powerful Super-LumiNova® coating (the C5) for a highly innovative photoluminescent coating A must-have for urban explorers who can choose between the all-steel bracelet in bead-blasted steel or the more casual black rubber strap.
Limited edition of 250 pieces in Bell & Ross boutiques
With its RM 35-03 automatic Rafael Nadal, Richard Mille patents the butterfly rotor

Produced with care in ultra-limited quantities, Richard Mille's rare watches are designed for connoisseurs of fine watchmaking. Drawing its origins from the tourbillon watches of the RM 027 collection (worn by Rafa Nadal on the tennis court), the "baby Nadal" collection of RM 035s is designed as a technological compendium for all those who are fascinated by performance. With the RM 35-03 Automatique Rafael Nadal, the fourth part of this collection, Richard Mille presents a patented innovation: the butterfly rotor. A system for winding the movement that required three years of development and that allows the wearer to control the winding of the movement according to his lifestyle and activities.
Resolutely sporty, combining technology, design and comfort, the dial of the RM 35-03 is available in two versions: in blue Quartz with a white Quartz case or in white Quartz and Carbon with a Carbon case.

For its 20th anniversary, the German company MeisterSinger has designed a capsule collection with a fifties look exclusively for France, available in three colours, with only 20 pieces each. With a single hand, a functional typography of painted numerals and no date, the dial in dark blue, ebony black or deep green magnifies the sober aesthetics of the 1950s without superfluous embellishments. Which does not mean without finishing. On the contrary! The extra-thin bezel and curved hesalite glass accentuate the vintage style of this limited edition, offered with a 36 or 40 mm case, and designed with a nubuck strap, interchangeable with a calf leather strap. A first for MeisterSinger to change style according to your desires!
