What ties these timepieces together are the red crown and matching hands, along with the timeless cannage pattern. It also comes with interchangeable straps in either rubber or exquisite leather for added versatility. Five of these models will hit boutiques starting February 2024, while the remaining pieces are set for release later in the year.

Victoria Beckham has partnered with Breitling to release the Chronomat Automatic 36 Victoria Beckham collection. The latest series boasts new colourways inspired by Beckham’s SS24 palette—peppermint, midnight blue, dove grey and sand—while keeping classic Chronomat features like the metal rouleaux bracelet and raised rider tabs at the 15-minute mark. When looked at closely, each watch bears both the iconic Breitling logo on the dial and VB initials on the second hand. The exclusivity of each piece is underscored by inscriptions on the dials, such as ‘One of 400’ for the stainless-steel models and ‘One of 100’ for each of the gold variations. Limited to 1,500 pieces, the Chronomat Automatic 36 Victoria Beckham is driven by the Breitling Calibre 10, which provides a power reserve of approximately 42 hours.


Hermes introduces the Arceau Mon Premier Galop timepiece

Hermes breathes new life into its classic Arceau watch, infusing it with a rich blend of leather marquetry, silk threads, and miniature painting. Drawing inspiration from the Mon Premier Galop shawl crafted by the Chinese artist Tong Ren, the new artwork tells a story of a horse gracefully traversing the sand, accompanied by a delicate butterfly, under the sun among the clouds.

The dial exhibits a composition reminiscent of a 30-piece jigsaw puzzle, where the sky and sun are meticulously rendered in enamel. The horse is crafted from a blend of silk and leather, harmoniously set against a radiant blue background. Encased in white gold, the Hermes watch boasts an opulent bezel adorned with 82 diamonds, while a Zephyr blue Swift calfskin strap adds a final touch of elegance. Limited to 24 pieces, the Arceau Mon Premier Galop is powered by the Hermès H1912 movement.
