Looking to buy watches online? Take a look at some great high end watches first, like Baume & Mercier’s William Baume Flying Tourbillon, Bell & Ross’ PW1 Repetition Minutes, and Bulgari’s Daniel Roth Papillon Voyageur.
Baume & Mercier’s William Baume Flying Tourbillon is a perfect tribute to a long history of watchmaking. The William Baume Flying Tourbillon is shown here in 18k rose gold with 43mm case and features sapphire crystal and caseback revealing the beautifully decorated movement. The tourbillon carriage is visible on the dial at the nine o’clock position and a small seconds display at six o’clock. The 18k rose gold hands sweep over the impressive black dial to display the hours. With a 52 hour power reserve, this hand wound creation is also water resistant to 30 meters and is shown here on a black alligator strap. Baume & Mercier created only 10 William Baume Flying Tourbillons worldwide, making this an extremely limited piece.
Luxury watchmakers Bell & Ross have unveiled the PW1 Répétition Minutes pocket watch. Inspired by the pocket watches of the 1910s, the PW1 is a compact, portable time piece much like those used by pilots during the first years of aviation. This fob watch begins with a 49mm-diameter polished Argentium case attached to a long chain, with a “barleycorn” guilloché caseback which opens to reveal the ingenious Répétition Minutes mechanism at its heart. The manual-winding movement, created by Dubois Dépraz, has a running time of approximately 56 hours. In a nod to its historical inspiration, the PW1 Répétition Minutes marks time like the clocks of the past – the hour is not read, but heard. The large complication mechanism indicates the hours and minutes musically on request. A low-pitched sound is emitted for each hour, followed by a series of double low-pitched and high-pitched sounds for each five minute period that has passed. The ruthenium dial features a sunburst with domed finish, as well as indications for hours, minutes and seconds.
The Daniel Roth Papillion Voyageur by Bulgari is today’s Haute Time Watch of the Day. This limited edition timepiece features an automatic Manufacture movement with a unique patented Papillion display, showing the minutes. The Papillion Voyageur also features a second time zone, jumping hour and 40 hour power reserve. The Daniel Roth Papillion Voyageur by Bulgari is shown here with an 18k pink gold 46mm case, anthracite dial and a brown alligator strap.
