This year the iconic El Primero chronograph goes very sophisticated in deep-black ceramicised aluminium. Beneath the El Primero 36,000 VpH’s chiaroscuro dial with its three eye-catching counters lies that illustrious high-frequency column-wheel movement.


Star turn.
Launched in 1963 and still the collector’s Holy Grail, the most famous panda-dial watch has been known as the “Paul Newman” since the actor wore it in Winning in 1969. The Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona’s looks have been updated through a monobloc Cerachrom bezel.

Happy Birthday!
In 2017 the Royal Oak Chronograph celebrates its 20th birthday with iterations each more striking than the last. This stainless-steel model sets off a two-tone dial with a silvered Grande Tapisserie pattern and expanded black chronograph counters at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock.
