Zenith
Succession

Here, at last, the long-awaited successor to the Zenith A386. The model has been garnering attention since 1969, thanks to its revolutionary El Primero movement. The Chronomaster Original is a worthy heir. It resembles the historic model but gets a few updates to bring its performance more in line with the 21st century.  It’s up to you to discover them for yourself!

Chopard
Ultra-light

Combining traditional watchmaking and contemporary style, the L.U.C. Perpetual Chrono will appeal to connoisseurs with its manual winding chronograph and perpetual calendar. It has both COSC certification and the demanding Geneva Seal. Now available with a grade 5 titanium case.

Omega
Versatile

Made famous by James Bond, the Seamaster Aqua Terra now has a new function at 6 o’clock: a small seconds counter.  Versatile (both in the city and at sea), it is designed for modern-day adventurers.  The 2021 delivery consists of some 20 models (38 or 41 mm, and 4 different movements), luxury versions and new dials included.

Tudor
Black & White

The Black Bay Chrono, with its steel case and bracelet, is powered by the Manufacture’s COSC-certified MT5813 calibre. Its opaline dial with black counters and date at 6 o’clock is pure and timeless.
