#WishlistWorthy: Stunning new watches from SIHH 2016

IWC Schaffhausen Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph

Bringing together three technologies—the city ring from the Pilot’s Watch Worldtimer, a sprung rotating bezel, and the external/internal rotating bezel mechanism from IWC’s latest Aquatimer—IWC’s engineer created the Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph, a world time watch that enables the user to set a new time zone, together with the date and 24-hour hand, all with a simple twist of the bezel. The polished black rotating bezel displays the names of 24 cities, from London via New York to Tokyo and Dubai, each representing one of the international time zones.

A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon

The latest masterpiece by A. Lange & Söhne stands out for its technical brilliance: a chronograph timepiece with perpetual calendar (moon phase display included) and tourbillon, it pairs three high-end complications with five supplementary functions. Despite the density of information packed into one tiny package, it still flaunts an elegant, organised face, a design that will definitely stand the test of time. Limited to just 100 units, the sapphire-crystal case back allows those who are fortunate enough to come across it to gaze at the exquisite tourbillon mechanism in motion.

Baume & Mercier Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar

Elegant as all Baume & Mercier creations are, the Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar is a blend of traditionand modernity, bearing two functions: a chronograph and a complete calendar. Powered by the high quality Swiss-made automatic movement Calibre Valjoux 7751, it features a moon-phase function at 9 o’clock and an exquisite sapphire crystal case back. It is available in three versions, all distinctly classy and timeless designs in their own rights.


Audemars Piguet Diamond Fury

This is one for the ladies: Powerful, eye-catching, and provocative, Audemars Piguet Diamond Fury is a Haute Joaillerie masterpiece made for the bold and beautiful. It rebels against the usual demure and delicate notions of jewellery watches, fueling attitude with its sparkling, paved cuff coupled with an edgy angular design. Dynamic in character, it shows off its mysterious side with a secret panel which, when touched, unhinges to reveal the paved two-hand diamond watch dial beneath.  


Cartier Tourbillon Mystérieux Azuré pendant watch

Bringing together its expertise in fine watchmaking and jewellery, Cartier creates the Tourbillon Mystérieux Azuré pendant watch—a beautiful cross between a pendant, watch and a medallion. A double tourbillon lies at the centre of the totally transparent dial, the emblem of the maison’s watchmaking expertise seemingly suspended in mid-air. Driven by the calibre 9463 MC mechanical movement, this brilliant timepiece is adorned with diamonds and sapphire, with a perfectly detachable 25.93-carat oval sapphire at the tip of the pendant.
