French Connection
The Mademoiselle Collection from Christopher Guy is an imagination of how Coco Chanel would live in current times as a 37-year-old woman. With oodles of Parisian charm, this flirtatious line includes 40 new pieces of furniture and accessories. The series consists of the curvy Coco Chair, the hand-carved Debussy Cabinet; a bergere-style Cambon Bed, and the reverse camel-backed Bardot Sofa.

Dial Art
It is futile to resist the attraction of the hand-wound, mechanical skeleton movement visible through the dial of the Tissot T-Complication Squelette. The wheel-inspired design ticks away under the scratch-resistant, anti-reflective domed-sapphire. The classic croc-patterned black leather strap completes the look.


Classy Swiss Timepiece

The Zenith Captain Winsor’s annual calendar module, built on top of its famous in-house El Primero high-speed chronograph movement, saves the watch owner the hassle of manually resetting the date at the end of all months except February.


New-Age Stopwatch

The Habring2 Doppel 2.0 is a bespoke, haute horology timepiece complete with a high-end complication and world-class pedigree. It is also an updated, streamlined version of the world’s first splitseconds chronograph, the Doppelchronograph, devised by Richard Habring in 1992.


Aesthetic High

For true Swiss quality and craftsmanship, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon 39 is ideal for anyone who respects traditional design. With a hand-finished ultra-thin automatic movement, and a monochrome dial with sweep seconds, moon-phase sector and date, the watch is a blend of retro and modern styles.
