While any MB&F is already something special, their contribution to ONLY WATCH 2017 goes even further. It allows you to dive into the imaginary world of children thanks to the special sapphire crystal pane, which is engraved and metallised with the drawings of Cassandra Legendre, a very talented 15-year old. Based on her drawings engraver Olivier Kuhn also sculpted and elephant which is placed between the hour and minute display.

Jaquet Droz Only Watch

With the “Black & Fire” Escale Spin Time does Louis Vuitton represent a stunning variety of their unique hour display feature. In red, yellow and orange it is a more than captivating watch, and it even comes with a trunk in Ardoise Taiga leather.

Moser Only Watch
Moser Venturer Concept Only Watch
H. Moser & Cie opted for a red fumé dial for the Venturer Concept Only Watch. Fitting it with white hands, it makes a subtle reference to the flag of Monaco. That is not all the red that there is to see, as the hand-wound manufacture calibre HMC 327 also has a balance bridge in red as well.

Speake Marin Only Watch
Speake-Marin Resilience Love Life
Speake-Marin teams up with brand ambassador Pierce Brosnan to create the Resilience Love Life. These words are written on the dial, as the famous actor also signed the back of the watch. Although a piece unique, this Resilience is part of the J-Class collection, recognizable by its clean dial, distinct blued hands, and bold case.

Voutilainen Only Watch
Voutilainen 28S
Voutilainen comes with a technical marvel to ONLY WATCH 2017. The focus of this is the escapement: It features two escape-wheels, which give a direct impulse to the balance through a roller, crafted from a synthetic jewel, making the escapement extremely efficient. Unique is also the balance-spring system, which not only features the Breguet overcoil, but the inner terminal follows the Grossmann principle, making the 28S a true technical marvel.
