Let the show begin!

A jukebox in the case, a bill-topping function and a top-secret number. These timepieces incorporate the magic of show-time at its best.


Harry Winston

Fifties revival.
The brainchild of two visionary watchmakers, Franck Orny and Johnny Girardin, the Opus 14, the latest in the collection, sports a miniaturised “jukebox” with four discs, each showing a specific display: local time, GMT, the date, and a star bearing Mr Harry Winston’s signature in reference to Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.


Staging technology.
The Rotonde Astrocalendaire’s 45mm platinum case and galvanised guilloché dial with a silvered grid beautifully shows off the workings of the 9459MC-calibre house movement featuring a C-shaped flying tourbillon and a perpetual calendar with a circular display. Numbered limited edition of 100 watches.


20 years on James Bond’s wrist.
For the release of the latest 007 film, Spectre starring Daniel Craig, Omega, the secret agent’s companion for the last 20 years, has brought out a limited edition of 7007 of the Seamaster 300 Spectre model driven by the Master Co-Axial 8400 calibre. It’s already stealing the limelight!
