Haute Complication: Louis Vuitton Escale Spin Time Meteorite

When launched for the first time in 2009, the Spin Time introduced a new concept of telling time. While a regular hand indicates the minutes, only the current hour is revealed. Its innovative movement places the hour markers, displayed on cubes attached to spokes, in their usual place on the dial. With the relevant hour shown against a background of gold, the remaining ones are hidden, with their cubes showing a different side decorated with motifs inspired by Louis Vuitton's famous luggage collections. The beauty of this concept is that it is not only highly legible, but also taps deep into the DNA of Louis Vuitton.

Haute Complication: Louis Vuitton Tambour Curve GMT Flying Tourbillon

Louis Vuitton is known as a brand that doesn't accept any compromises. This is what made it propel itself to the top of the luxury world, becoming the benchmark to which all others are measured. The brand has the same dedication in its timepiece collection. Here timeless style and refined movements go hand in hand with wearing comfort and user-friendliness. The Tambour Curve GMT Flying Tourbillon is the perfect example of this, by housing within the smooth lines of the iconic Tambour model, a most exquisite movement.

Hermès Is Launching Exclusive US Limited Edition Of The Arceau L’heure de la lune

The Arceau is one of Hermès' emblematic designs created by the brand's legendary artistic director Henri d'Origny in 1978. Its stirrup-based design always has a certain elegance to it, which is doesn't lose when the watch's diameter is increasing. This was, in particular, proven by the Arceau L'heure de la lune, a watch that Hermès launched at the SIHH in 2019. As it measures 43mm in diameter, is this quite a large watch by Hermès standards, yet its attraction is just the same.

Watch of the Week: Piaget Altiplano

Class pur sang, that is, and always has been the Piaget Altiplano. A refined case, which is so distinctly understated that connoisseurs immediately know that they are looking at something special, houses a movement that comes from a royal lineage of ultra-slim movements.

Watch of the Week: Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar Meteorite

If there is any doubt what a difference a dial can make, then the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar Meteorite will settle this question for good! While the "regular" version of this watch is a true classic, the meteorite dial turns it into an instant eye-catcher, especially when you opt for the 18K pink gold case.
