Oris Carl Brashear Cal. 401
Oris introduces Carl Brashear Cal. 401 Limited Edition, created in support of the Carl Brashear Foundation. This special watch is limited to 2,000 pieces, and it becomes the first watch to carry Oris Calibre 401. The new watch is cased in 40 mm of bronze. Bronze is a natural material that patinates as it reacts with oxygen in the air and moisture from the skin. Over time, it will take on a unique finish, like a visual chronicle of the wearer’s own life wearing the watch.
Seven glittering diamonds move freely below the sapphire crystal case of Chopard’s stainless steel ‘Happy Sport’ watch – the innovative setting was developed in-house 40 years ago and is inspired by droplets bouncing from a waterfall. The silver-tone dial is intricately engraved using a traditional guilloché technique, and the classic Roman numeral markers have a slightly curved typeface that’s signature to the brand.
Designer Henri d’Origny is known for his ability to reinterpret heirlooms, and Hermès Timepieces’ ‘Arceau Soleil’ watch is a good example. It’s been crafted in the house’s Swiss atelier and has a diamond-encrusted stainless steel case. The laser-engraved, lacquered dial features a ‘Soleil’ motif by artist Fred Rawyler and is dotted with diamonds in place of traditional numerals. The elegant alligator strap is interchangeable.
