1 Zenith Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane Grand Voyage II
The latest Academy Christophe Colomb features the collection’s iconic "Gravity Control" gyroscopic module, a mechanism that ensures greater precision through the horizontal positioning of the regulating organ. But this watch isn’t all brawn. It’s also got a sensitive side. Keeping it together, the white enamel dial brings clarity to an otherwise very busy watch.
2 Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Deadbeat
Presented alongside one of the brand’s historic pocket watches, also enamel decorated, the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Deadbeat is instantly recognizable for its figure eight layout, a staple of the brand. Its stunning Grand Feu enamel dial serves as the backdrop for one of the brand’s most complicated watches, featuring hours, minutes, date, and deadbeat seconds functions.

3 Patek Philippe Ref. 5370 Split-Seconds Chronograph
With its stunning black enamel dial, the Patek Philippe Ref. 5370 Split-Seconds Chronograph combines the brand’s noblest qualities and fine-tunes the complication it created back in 1923, which has since become a pillar of the Patek Philippe narrative. Beautiful on the outside, it has nothing to hide on the inside either. The watch reintroduces Caliber CHR 29-535 PS Q, a stunning manually wound movement that is visible through a sapphire caseback.

4 Hermès Slim d’Hermes Perspective Cavalière
Fashion house turned watchmaker, Hermès has a lot to draw from. Just like the Slim d’Hermès La Femme Aux Semelles De Vent, the Slim d’Hermes Perspective Cavalière borrows from a motif first introduced on one of the Maison’s famed silk carré scarves. The highly colorful and geometrical design creates quite a striking dial, but it hides a more subtle message, spelt out across the enamel dial: ‘Hermès Paris.’
5 Hublot Classic Fusion Enamel Britto
Hublot pushes the boundaries of “The Art Of Fusion” further by creating a link between the traditional art of “grand feu” enameling and the contemporary art movements of Pop Art and Cubism. Created in partnership with Romero Britto, the dial is a striking work of art featuring 12 opaque colors, each one fired at a different temperature. Hublot was so pleased with it that it introduced a unique version for this year’s Only Watch Auction. Please click here for more...
