At the opening ceremony of the 73rd Venice International Film Festival Official partner of the Film Festival for over a decade, Jaeger-LeCoultre reaffirmed its commitment to encouraging and celebrating filmmaking at the opening ceremony that took place at Palazzo del Cinema in Venice last night. Jaeger-LeCoultre, gathered close friends of the Brand to celebrate cinema. Throughout the evening guests were humbled and thoughtful about Italy’s recent tragedy. The world premiere of Damien Chazelle’s film La La Land, opened the festival, receiving a standing ovation. JAEGER-LECOULTRE AND CINEMA Jaeger-LeCoultre’s affinity with the 7th Art is all about two worlds infused with the same creative effervescence, inspired from a longstanding tradition and the absolute quest of excellence. Jaeger-LeCoultre gives a particular support to those who daily contribute to create and bring life to the art of filmmaking, and attaches great importance to the preservation of its heritage. Official partner of the Venice International Film Festival for over a decade, Jaeger-LeCoultre confers each year the Glory to the Filmmaker Award to a filmmaker chosen by the director of the festival. Since April 2013, as part of the actions of the “Film Society of Lincoln Center” in New York, Jaeger-LeCoultre has launched the Filmmaker in Residence Program, an initiative which supports a filmmaker in the realization of his future projects.

Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre presents three exceptions models paying homage to Métiers Rares® Jaeger-LeCoultre unveils its new models embodying the powerful ties cultivated by the Manufacture with rare and exceptional skills. These pieces are the sum of many parts: a unique place that is the Rare Crafts Atelier; a flow of talent and inspiration of its artisans; and a vision of watchmaking defined by a love of beauty.
MASTER GRANDE TRADITION À RÉPÉTITION MINUTES An ageless masterpiece The inherent appeal of the Master Grande Tradition à Répétition Minutes is magnificently enhanced by the presence of a miniature painting on its dial paying eloquent tribute to Van Gogh’s Starry Night over the Rhône: a work that fulfilled one of the painter’s most cherished dreams. It took every ounce of the enamellist’s artistry to transpose onto the dial all the magic of this night sky. The timeless intensity of the deep, dark colours is sealed by Grand Feu enamel. The 39 mm watch is issued in a limited series of 18 pieces in pink gold. A Minute Repeater for music lovers Endowed with major innovations including trebuchet hammers, crystal gongs, an ergonomic and a user-friendly pushbutton, this minute repeater watch produces a peerlessly pure, rich and well-rounded sound. Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 942 This mechanical automatic movement beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, equipped with a minute repeater, comprises 437 parts and delivers a 40-hour power reserve. 7.17mm thick, it is imbued with standout aesthetic sophistication reflected in the oscillating weight crafted in pink gold. MASTER GRAND TOURBILLON ENAMEL Precious halo Perfectly mastered within the Métiers Rares® Atelier of the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre, the art of paillonné enamel consists of cutting out tiny sparkles of silver and yellow gold leaf foil. Only experience can enable the artisan to distribute these extremely volatile tiny spangles or paillettes across the enamel in an aesthetically pleasing manner. After firing the enamel in the kiln, polishing reveals the metal elements glimmering beneath the dial. The final result is an extraordinary deep blue dial that looks as if it is illuminated with fireworks of golden star dust.

DIVER CHRONOGRAPH MONACO
ARTEMIS RACING VICTORIUS IN TOULON
A Limited Edition Ulysse Nardin Diver Chronograph Monaco delights the yachting world. Introducing a commemorative timepiece that encapsulates the spirit of innovation and independence that have driven Ulysse Nardin forward for over 170 years. With a nautical history as profound as the oceans, the timekeep-ing instruments of the Swiss watchmaker have been guiding sailors with exact precision for many a decade. It seems a natural extension of that history for the manufacture to become official sponsor of the Monaco Yacht Show, an honor it has held for the last eight years. Ulysse Nardin pays tribute to this high point in the yachting calendar with a Limited Edition Diver Chronograph Monaco. Clothed in the smart red and blue shared by other Monaco Limited Edition timepieces, the Diver Chronograph commemorates the event with a minute counter showing the heraldic pattern of the Principality of Monaco, also present on the sapphire crystal case back. Monaco Yacht Show 2016 is written on the blue dial, while the indexes and hands show the colors of the Monaco flag. The deep connection Ulysse Nardin has with the sea is present in every aspect of this highly collectible timepiece, of which only 100 stainless steel pieces have been made. A fully functional diver, as well as a precision chrono-graph, it is ready for anything the ocean can throw at it, making it an ideal timepiece sailors and all those who love the sea. The Diver Chronograph Monaco holds a self-winding movement: the inhouse designed Caliber UN-150 with its silicium escapement. Seconds hand in the center, small seconds at 9 o’clock, 30 minutes at 3 o’clock, 12 hour counter and a round date window at 6 o’clock offer complete chronograph timekeeping. The diving DNA is revealed as much by the watch’s oversized 44mm case as its unidirectional diving bezel - a security measure to prevent accidental changes to the dive time. The outside of the rotating bezel is fluted, as if to echo the wave motif etched in rubber on the stainless steel. Rubber coats of the screw-down security crown too, ensuring grip and an exceptional water resistance to 300 meters - along with its other traits, the mark of a true div-ing watch. For legibility as much as to delight the eye, the Diver Chronograph Monaco is a perfect fusion between form and function for which Ulysse Nardin is known. 14
Artemis Racing became the second team to win three Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series regattas with a resounding victory in Toulon. With practice cancelled on Friday due to light winds, the teams came into racing on Saturday with little opportunity to get a feel for the shifty local conditions in Toulon. Skipper, Nathan Outteridge, was back at the helm after his Olympic success in Rio, and it would be easy to forgive him for looking a little rusty. However, the double Olympic medallist hit the ground running, making the perfect start with two victories and a third on Saturday.
“One of the biggest gains we’ve made this weekend, is cementing our communication onboard. Over the events we’ve had a bit of a tough time with our decision-making processes, but Iain Percy was doing a great job this weekend of explaining what he was thinking and what our options were, as well as picking all the rights shifts. It’s just a pleasure to sail with him and the rest of the guys, we’re a very strong unit”, concluded Nathan Outteridge.
“Saturday was a great day for us, starting well, or fighting our way through the fleet. I’m fortunate to have such a great crew, working seamlessly around me, it makes my life so much easier. The conditions were very light and patchy, and we did a good job with Christian, on when to fly the hull and when not to”, said Nathan Outteridge. After such a great start, the pressure was on heading to Super Sunday. However, the team kept their composure to lead the fleet from start to finish in Race 4, claiming their third victory of the weekend, and extending their overall regatta lead. In Race 5, an OCS on the start dropped the team to the back of the fleet leaving them with plenty to do. Nathan Outteridge continued, “Today we kicked things off nicely with a win, with the boys sailing really well all the way round. In the second two races we didn’t quite manage our timing perfectly, ending with OCSs in both starts. Again, it showed the quality of our crew to fight and get back up to third in the second race”. The Swedish team held a lead of 8 points over Land Rover BAR heading into the final race, leading to an intense finale. “The last race was all about keeping close to Land Rover BAR, so there was a bit of action on the first reach with a few penalties for everyone. It certainly made life interesting for us, and I’m sure for the spectators and everyone watching at home”, commented Team Manager and Tactician, Iain Percy. The commentary team were quick to praise the way the crew were communicating all weekend.

Piaget Polo S – Play a Different Game IS DELIGHTED TO INTRODUCE
AS ITS INTERNATIONAL BRAND AMBASSADOR
Not every year, not even every decade, does a watch become an icon of its generation and an expression of the spirit of its time. In 1979, however, Piaget created just such a timepiece with the Piaget Polo. Although recognized throughout the world, the Piaget Polo has always had a particular association with New York. It was here in 1985 that the Piaget polo team celebrated the watch by riding down Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue. Thus, there could be no greater city or place for Piaget to celebrate the legacy of the original Piaget Polo with the launch of a new watch, for a new generation.

The rules rewritten Piaget, the luxury watchmaker and jeweler, announces award-winning actor Ryan Reynolds as its international male brand ambassador for Piaget watches. “Ryan Reynolds delights audiences around the world with a blend of elegance and charisma. His remarkable and daring on-screen performances paired with his magnetic good looks have earned him a place as one of Hollywood’s leading men,” explains Philippe LéopoldMetzger, Piaget CEO. “Like Piaget, he fearlessly brings creativity to his art, and we are thrilled to welcome him to the Piaget family.” “I’m very happy to join the Piaget family. I’ve known of Piaget since I was just a little kid. You can’t find a more iconic brand, or one which better exemplifies craftsmanship, elegance and creativity. This is something that means a lot to me,” says Ryan Reynolds. “I work in a field in which things can be cast away quite quickly. So when you find something iconic, something timeless, it’s important. And that’s one of the many things I love about Piaget.” 16
About Ryan Reynolds Canadian-born Ryan Reynolds started his career in TV before making his first major film breakthrough in the 2002 comedy and cult classic National Lampoon’s Van Wilder. He has proven his versatility as an actor by taking on ultimate superhero roles in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) and The Green Lantern (2011), as well as earning critical acclaim and awards for his performances in the independent drama Buried (2010) and the critically acclaimed film, Mississippi Grind (2015). He’s starred alongside Sandra Bullock in the hit romantic comedy, The Proposal, and made his muchanticipated return to the Marvel Comics series in 2016 with Deadpool. Deadpool quickly became the highest grossing R-Rated film in box office history and the most successful X-Men film to date. His upcoming film releases include the science fiction thriller Life (2017) along with the highly anticipated sequel to Deadpool (2018).
It takes its name from the elegant and demanding sport of polo. It is infused with the ethos of Piaget Society that was founded on the lasting friendships the brand has formed in the world of music, film, art and sports. It expresses the grammar of shapes that is at the heart of the Piaget DNA. And yet, the Piaget Polo S is the watch for those who challenge conventions. Because, on this exceptional occasion, Piaget has housed an automatic precision movement in a watch of stainless steel. Featuring an ingenious shape-within-shape that is Piaget’s distinctive hallmark, the Piaget Polo S displays the unique association of a cushion-shaped dial within a round 42mm case. Designed by Piaget, its automatic movement discreetly reveals its beauty through a sapphire caseback. A bracelet of meticulously hand-assembled links alternatingly polished and with a satin finish, completes the experience. The result? A watch that – by day or by night, at work or at play – speaks to and for a new generation. Five Watches, One Philosophy The collection is composed of the automatic Piaget Polo

The automatic Piaget Polo S is available with a blue, silvered or slate-gray dial, while the Piaget Polo S Chronograph is available with a silvered or slate-gray dial. The Game Changers of Piaget: Nine men, One Spirit Piaget created the Piaget Polo S for a new generation: a generation of game changers. Like the Piaget Polo S, these men are ready to rewrite the rules. By choosing Piaget for a steel watch, they show with elegance and distinction that they play a different game. Around the world, in recognition of their exceptional talent, Piaget has selected eight such men to wear the Piaget Polo S and to be a Friend of the Maison for their country. These men are not followers. They are driven by passion to make their dreams come true, and impact their world differently. Each a Game Changer in his own profession and an influencer with digital power, they have proved in life and through their careers that they truly embody the spirit and ethos of this unique watch. 17

The Historic Roots Of An Iconic Model
Cat’s Eye Aventurine The Girard-Perregaux Manufacture presents this seductive new version of its iconic Cat’s Eye collection, widely acclaimed for its magnificent aesthetic and mechanical features. With its dark glittering color dial in aventurine that recalls a night sky full of starts, the new model Girard-Perregaux poetically marks out each hour of day and night as a precious moment. The beauty of this “Day & Night” model stylishly combines the curves of the Cat’s Eye case with a sophisticated manufactured movement. The complication is displayed in a feminine way : a shiny sun and a smooth moon appear on the 22 cts pink gold disc that completes a rotation in 24 hours. Synchronized with the hours and minutes hands, the complication is very easy to use as it doesn’t need to be set. Its emblematic oval case – the signature feature of the collection – is crafted out of pink gold, while its bezel sparkles with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds. Its lugs, curved delicately inwards, harmoniously extend the proportions of the case, providing the wrist with a perfect fit to ensure maximum comfort for the wearer. Its crown, carefully chiseled into the form of a flower, emphasizes even further this model’s ultrafeminine elegance. Time is measured out by delicate leafshaped hands for the hours and minutes, and by a baton-type hand for the seconds. Their path is protected by a slightly domed sapphire crystal. The mechanical, self-winding movement GP03300-0090, exclusive to this collection, is made up of 218 different components. Mainplate and bridges are straight-grained, chamfered, circular-grained and decorated with a ‘Côtes de Genève‘ motif and the Gold oscillating weight adorned with a “GP” tapestry pattern. The Cat’s Eye Aventurine Day & Night watch is available with a midnight-blue alligator leather strap that completes the look of this very dressy timepiece. The Cat’s Eye line created in 2004 was so innovative that it has won several distinctions. It proves that feminine shapes lend themselves wonderfully to complicated watches. Acclaimed for its magnificent aesthetic and mechanical features, the iconic collection continues to create curiosity and to enhance de know how of Girard-Perregaux.
1975: The origins In 1975, Girard-Perregaux introduced the Laureato, a timepiece that single-handedly broke all the conventions of that time in terms of the shape, the materials and the movement. Suggested by Girard-Perregaux’s Italian distributor, the name is a nod to the film world. It is inspired by and indeed bears the same name in Italian as the Mike Nichols film The Graduate (1967) starring Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft and Katharine Ross. The superior quality of steel: a bold move If historians were to choose the watershed moment when the watchmaking industry began using steel as a quality material to make high-end watches look sportier, they would also have to factor in the Laureato’s trajectory from its period of development to its release in 1975. Right from the beginning, this model also featured gold which was particularly unusual for watches of this type. The word bold has always been part of the Girard-Perregaux vocabulary. Such a daring venture was an inspired move at a time when marketing departments hadn’t yet taken their first steps into the world of watchmaking. Laureato 2016: The future of its origins A return to its original values, collector While preparing to celebrate its 225th anniversary, GirardPerregaux returned to its iconic Laureato and the original design premise. Backed by the manufacturing arts and micromechanics expertise, over 40 years after the first steel Laureato was introduced and as a tribute to its success, the Brand is honoring the timepiece with a limited edition of 225. Steel to this day Watchmakers and lovers of fine watchmaking have always appreciated the properties of steel and it is making a strong
comeback as it is invariably associated with the sporty watch design. Once again there are the well-known hexagonal bezel and the understated seamless integration of the flexible bracelet, but this time it has a clasp and a subtle interplay between polished and satin-brushed finishing. The 41 mm diameter returns to reasonable standards after allowing itself a momentary foray into the XXL era. The baton-shaped hands come from the original model and have been embellished with a hint of luminescent material while the dial (sometimes white gray sometimes navy blue) is stamped with a Clou de Paris small checkerboard pattern like the first 1975 models. The date appears at 3 o’clock. Among the inconspicuous signs that this is a modern edition are an anti-reflective treatment on the crystal and the addition of a sapphire crystal on the back. The quintessential enduring three date hands As with any fine watchmaking brand, the Laureato features a Manufacture movement: the GP03300-0030. This 27-jewel self-winding mechanical movement with flawless finishing is equipped with an oscillating weight that can be viewed through the case back. It has a frequency of 28”800 vibrations per hour and a 46-hour power reserve. Post-vintage: New trend Backed by 225 years of history, Girard Perregaux guards its expertise and centuries-old craftsmanship. Internally, it is preserving the treasures of its legacy and the museum is poised to reopen in La Chaux-de-Fonds. Exploring the timepieces on display at the museum reveals a journey marked by impassioned artistry and boldness as well as a collection that has become timeless and captures the spirit of founder watchmaker Jean-François Bautte in 1791. Created in 1975 and faithfully re-released for the 225th anniversary, the Laureato joins this hall of fame for iconic models. 21

Admiral Legend 47 Worldtimer An ocean voyage
Since 1960, the powerful allure and technical performance of Corum’s symbolic Admiral collection has encapsulated the historic link between the Swiss watch making brand and sailing. In 2016, this sporting icon is enhanced with a complication preferred by the long distance traveler: World-Time. Powerful and elegant, the new Admiral Legend 47 Worldtimer is equipped with an automatic caliber which, apart from the hours, minutes and seconds, displays a second time zone and the corresponding city. Its strong case, 47 mm in diameter and mounted with a distinctive twelve-sided bezel, is available in titanium or titanium and rose gold, while the painted black dial, which also comes in smoked sapphire crystal in the bi-color version, comes to life with large luminescent hands and the famous nautical pennants, for optimal readability anywhere in the world. Created almost 60 years ago, the Admiral range has become a veritable cornerstone of Corum. Its strong aesthetic and emblematic conventions express an elegant yet sporty personality, born of the brand’s passion for the sea and for yachting. The distinctive twelve-sided case and the colorful nautical pennants which adorn the dial create a strong, contemporary look, which is a signature of the collection. A fresh arrival to this iconic family, the Admiral Legend 47 Worldtimer, with its world-time function, is the ideal companion for navigators and long distance travellers. 24
The ultimate traveler’s watch, the Admiral Legend 47 Worldtimer is available in two models vying for the top spot for their style and technical prowess. Its robust case, 47 mm in diameter, waterproof to 100 meters, is worked from titanium in the first model, while the bi-color version marries the metallic brilliance of this ultra-light material with the warmth of rose gold on the twelve-sided bezel. The case is structured with layers opening onto a matte black dial punctuated by pennant markers, luminescent Dauphine hands and a skeleton second hand providing perfect visibility in all circumstances. The bi-color model features a smoked sapphire crystal dial, which provides a glimpse of the working parts of its mechanical heart. World time In perfect contrast, the open bottom of the dial is equipped with smoked sapphire crystal engraved with the names of cities in 24 time zones as well as their abbreviations. As a result one can admire the CO376 calibre, its bars echoing a dodecagon and its openwork oscillating weight. Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, for a power-reserve of 48 hours, this automatically-winding watch includes functions for the hour, minute, and second, as well as a second time zone and city indicators. Selecting the time zone is particularly easy, via the crown situated at 2 o’clock pressing on the pusher at 2 o’clock allows the hour hand to jump forward. A black vulcanized rubber strap featuring a tri-fold clasp adds the finishing touch to the technical and distinguished elegance of these two models with hints of adventure and escape. 25
THE REVOLUTIONARY CLASSIC SPIRIT OF B.zero1 STRIKES IN THE NEW CREATIONS OF THE ICONIC COLLECTION
After the unveiling of the revolutionary three gold B.zero1 perfect mistake ring, the iconic Bulgari collection is now being enriched with four new playful and precious creations. Drawing its inspiration from the most renowned amphitheater of the world, the Colosseum, the iconic spiral shines in two brilliant and delicate new redemptions. The two pendants - in pink and white gold with pavé diamonds nestled in the spiral shape masterfully incorporate refinement and audacity, showing the multiple facets and expressivities that only B.zero1 can have. Beautifully capturing the light of the pavé diamond setting, the two new glittering B.zero1 pendants perfectly suit the spirit of women who love the glitz and wish to strike with a precious yet effortlessly elegant and delicate jewel. In the daring spirit of unexpected materials combinations, this new B.zero1 creations go even further with two new bangles in white or black ceramic with pink gold. The new bangles are restyled for a light and natural wearability, as the body of the bracelets perfectly embraces the wrist whilst the thin structure makes them easy to be stacked together, following B.zero1’s playful and creative soul. The black and white ceramic bands encircled by the outer pink gold BVLGARI BVLGARI frame are a delightful tribute to Bulgari’s famed Chandra collection which was first launched in 1994. This innovative and provocative line of jewels was rendered in white porcelain moulded into variously shaped beads. Strictly linked to the origins of the iconic B.zero1 ring, the contemporary bangle design was born in 1999, when three ideas for a commemorative ring for the new millennium were proposed to Bulgari’s creative direction. Prototype 1 was magnificent, of a uniform gold colour, the perfect jewel to ring in a new era. It was named B.zero1, to symbolize the “B” of Bulgari and the zero.1 of infinite beginnings. But there had been two additional models that could not be forgotten. 26
Prototype 2, in three different shades of gold – white, yellow, and pink – revealed only this year to the world as the B.zero1 perfect mistake ring. Meanwhile Prototype 3 had also been formed of a defiant meld of ideas. As a ring, stretched to the limit, its thin, bangle shape gave rise to a daring bracelet design, exploratory and radical, yet delicate and sexy and today revealed in new creative redemptions.

A Gold Classic Never Dates
A tribute to watchmaking traditions
Tissot Vintage Chronograph
The Tissot Le Locle Regulateur An Enduring Classic
A style for connoisseurs
Referencing Tissot’s rich watchmaking heritage while looking resolutely forwards, the Tissot Le Locle Regulateur is a member of the popular Le Locle family of watches, named after Tissot’s home in the Swiss Jura Mountains. Thoughtful design ticks, including the watch’s big hand, which indicates the minutes, nod to the original “Regulateur”, a clock used in workshops in the eighteenth and nineteenth century as reference to check the accuracy of pocket watches. At that time, watches were not as accurate as they are today. They varied in terms of minutes rather than seconds, which is why the minute was the most accurate quantification. This piece reflects that by placing the small counter, which indicates the seconds, at the bottom of the dial, while the hour counter is at the top.
The distinct style of the Tissot Le Locle Regulateur means it is sure to appeal to watch lovers. It is destined for the more mature and debonair that are looking for more than just a watch but a piece of history and art. Available in a plethora of different models, in modern steel, fashionable yellow gold pvd bicolour or classic black with or without a warm rose gold case the connoisseurs will be spoilt for choice. It’s time to add elegance to the everyday.
Opulently retro Tissot’s luxurious family of Vintage watches crafted in sumptuous gold highlight Tissot’s expertise, demonstrating just why they are one of the leaders when it comes to creating 18-carat gold watches. Now, the Tissot Vintage Chronograph completes the collection and effortlessly combines technical expertise with a timeless aesthetic for a truly enduring watch that won’t date. The pure, clean lines and elegantly uncluttered face are complemented only by single, streamlined touches like the discreet date at 4 o’ clock and the contemporary baton indices which are the perfect foil for the beautifully antique style of the watch. Shades of gold In a first for Tissot, the Vintage Chronograph is available in a very special edition where the gradient yellow gold on the dial fades into a distinguished gunmetal; a hue somewhere between anthracite and black. The deep, dark shades and clever contouring add a depth to the dial that is beautiful to behold. Those that prefer pure simplicity aren’t forgotten however, as other models come clad in all black with a leather strap and rose gold case, with a silver dial and rose gold with brown leather strap or in yellow gold with silver dial and black leather strap, all of which recall a glamorous bygone era. It’s time to take luxury to the next level. 30

SWATCH CELEBRATES THE LUXURY OF BEING INCLUSIVELY EXCLUSIVE “Please do touch!” says the Swatch Fall-Winter Collection. Sit back and sip the cocktail of sensuous fabric flair, Swiss precision and the universal freedom of choice. This luxury is at your fingertips 24/7. Archi-Mix is a living lookbook where everyone can find the ideal hero for their own life story. Grüezi All! is having fun with its Swiss roots, assisted by cuckoos, conifers and cuddly mountain rescue dogs. Liberty expresses itself visually and verbally via the Voice of Freedom watches, as words and pictures say exactly what they think. Magies d’Hiver is set to warm up the winter with icons of the Swiss picture postcard season and some tales of the unexpected. What better way to spend a chilly evening than curled up by a fire with a storybook? The Es War Zweimal timepieces promise never to lose the plot and will rekindle childhood memories. And as the festive season knocks the duvet days off the agenda to make way for party time, Look Fab promises that every Cinderella will go to the ball.
ARCHI-MIX Architecture creates places out of forms. Archi-Mix turns time into emotions and expressions. Looks as diverse as vintage and the bizarrely avant-garde testify that no two individuals spend their time in exactly the same way. If eyes are mirrors of the soul, watches are mirrors of the mind. So what’s the wearer of WAVEY DOTS (SUOK118) currently thinking? Perhaps that life has many ups and downs, but that serenity and calm bring regularity to the rollercoaster?
Glamor is on the calendar! The Look Fab watches are magic wands that turn moments into occasions and celebrations. Sparkle is part of the festive season’s DNA. Think timekeeping tiaras and you’ll be spot on with SNOWSHINE (GE250), NUIT ROSE (GP149) and NUIT DOREE (SU-OK122). This trio of glittery pieces is quite simply brilliance to go – take your pick from white, pink or the Midas touch. Jewelry also meets horology on two exquisite Swatch Skin models. GOLDEN STREET (SFE106G) has a metal bracelet reminiscent of gorgeously geometric, intricate paving. Four gemstones provide orientation on the dial – a compass for night owls? 34
GUIMAUVE (GP148) takes a pastoral pastel approach, while CHESERA (LM141) is a ladylike dark horse with enigmatic appeal. WHITE GLOVE (SUOW131) plays the innocent at first glance but a few subtle shades of grey add a playful touch of intrigue. SKELETOR (SUOB134) is definitely the type that likes to wear its heart on its sleeve with an intriguing open dial. LARANCIO (SUOO103) on the other hand is totally out there with bold black figures hanging out around a bright orange dial and shouting out, “It’s all about me!”. For personalities with a talent for seeing things from both sides, SECRET NUMBERS (SUOB133) is the perfect accomplice. Not only is each number split into two parts, the reverse of the monochrome strap has a secret life of multicolored stripes. For those keen to exercise feminine charm ALACARLA
(YSG145A/B) combines delicate dimensions with a rosegold and dark grey color scheme. The sophisticated lady will also love SKY NET (SFE109M), with its delicate Milanese bracelet and sun-brushed dial putting the glimmer into glamour. Swatch Irony watches always have a twinkle in their eye as they weld together metal materials and the power of expression. Modern-day gentlemen will certainly be pitching for STRICTLY SILVER (YGS131) and FOUR THIRTY (YWS416). These sleek classics advertise understated confidence – no tiepins or cufflinks necessary. DESTINATION HAMBURG (YVS432) is not going to miss the boat with its minimalist chronograph dial and dark brown leather strap with fresh white stitching. Girly time is of course very much on the map this season with DREAMNIGHT ROSE (YCS588G) allowing light pink elements to flirt with a silver-colored structure and CLEAR WATER (YCS589G) integrating the über cool combination of silver and ice blue. Color is also king on a red, white and blue trio of stunning aluminum chronographs. RED ATTACK (YYS4018AG), WHITE ATTACK (YYS4019AG) and BLUE ATTACK (YYS4017AG) cleverly balance an eye for detail with a desire to turn heads. The ultimate proof that nothing is black and white… 35

The difference between SISTEM51 and SISTEM51 IRONY is ... Metal—lots of it.

Built for the boardroom, exhibition or weekend adventure, the new SISTEM51 IRONY is fit with the same single central screw, 90-hour power reserve, 17 pending patents and impressively low 51 total components as all SISTEM51 models, but with a more evolved look and feel.

The glasses integrate high-quality materials as well as resistance to perspiration, chemical products and breakage. The launch of the collection will be supported by the “I ALWAYS WANT MORE LOOKS” advertising campaign - as fun, provocative and smile-inducing as ever! 38
A Scandinavian Winter’s Tale By Swatch Once upon a time, in a faraway village in Northern Scandinavia: the air was freezing cold, the trees were covered in a thick layer of fluffy white snow, and the villagers were busily making final preparations for the upcoming festivities. Cozy wooden houses were festooned with red-ribboned wreaths and a smell of homemade gingerbread cookies was in the air. Everyone was happily bustling around. Everyone, that is, except Magnus, the postman, who was completely stressed out – he’d lost a parcel on his delivery tour. Someone would not find his gift under the candlelit tree tonight and it would all be his fault. In his despair he walked back to every house, trying to catch sight of the missing box. He remembered it well – it was a charming, light blue cardboard house with a festive white printing. In fact it almost looked like his own cottage. Magnus fought his way through the cold snow, desperately looking everywhere for the missing gift. Frozen stiff and just about to give up, he discovered it under a huge fir tree. Overjoyed, he grabbed it and checked the address so he could deliver it, just in time for the big celebration. To his utter astonishment, he discovered his own name on the address label. He couldn’t believe he had lost and found his own present, but he was so curious to discover what it contained that he opened it right away. Inside the special packaging was the most beautiful watch he had ever seen: the new Swatch Seasons Special, GOD JUL (SUOZ222S, limited and numbered edition of 8,888 pieces). The iridescent foil on the dial reminded him of the Northern lights he loved so much. Snowflakes were dancing around Magnus’ head and finally placed themselves on the watch glass and light blue bracelet as a beautiful white pattern. It was the perfect gift for the always-a-little-tight-on-time postman. When he found the matching Swatch The Eyes sunglasses – THE EYES OF SANTA (SES03WPW008) – in the glittery powder snow, which would look amazing on his beloved wife, he was the happiest man on earth. Or at least in Northern Scandinavia.

Lightweight timekeeping for a minimalist style statement Rado’s True Thinline collection is ready to adorn your wrist with a chic and minimalist look. Boasting a simple yet striking design, four new additions to the True Thinline family lend themselves perfectly to styling in any season.

Both are crafted from Rado’s signature material, high-tech ceramic, which achieves an impressive union of lightness, comfort and durability.

Independence Day: Resurgence
INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE 20 years later they are coming back – and so is Hamilton. The second chapter by Roland Emmerich features four Hamilton Timepieces
We always knew they were coming back. After ‘Independence Day’ redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction. The film is directed by Roland Emmerich, who directed the first chapter, as well as other blockbusters such as The Day After Tomorrow. Independence Day: Resurgence stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Maika Monroe, Travis Trope, William Fichtner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Judd Hirsch, Jessie Usher, Sela Ward, Brent Spiner, Vivica A. Fox, and Angelababy.
#TimeMatters Time matters as the world unites to save the planet against alien invasion and human destruction. Fighting from the skies is pilot Jake Morrison, played by Liam Hemsworth, and wearing a robust Khaki X-Wind automatic chronograph. Built for adventure and proudly supporting its military heritage, this powerful timepiece is perfectly adapted for all defense missions. The pushers on the 44 millimeter stainless steel case are uniquely built to form an X, while the brown calf leather strap ads a stylish vintage touch. Inside, its automatic movement powers chronograph and day-date functions, as well as a drift-angle calculator created specifically for pilots so they can measure crosswinds. Even when using alien technology, keeping track of time is essential, and the Hamilton Khaki X-Wind will scrupulously answer the need for precision.
Due to its continued involvement with Hollywood, Hamilton recognizes the wide spectrum of opportunities associated to the red carpet. With this in mind, the brand created the Hamilton Behind The Camera Awards, held in both Los Angeles and Shanghai. The awards pay tribute to the brilliant off-screen talents that contribute to the quality of a motion picture and to the lasting impression it makes on its audience.
The action-packed Independence Day: Resurgence also stars some other Hamilton timepieces worn by additional cast members, starting with Jeff Goldblum wearing an elegant Jazzmaster automatic with GMT function to keep track of time in the different cities during the alien invasion. A Thinomatic can be seen on the wrist of Bill Pullman, and James A. Woods will be wearing a Khaki Pilot Automatic Chronograph, selected for their timekeeping precision and military-inspired design – because #TimeMatters when the earth is under attack. Hamilton’s presence in Independence Day: Resurgence is the latest in over 450 movie placements for Hamilton. The first collaboration was 65 years ago when the brand’s watches first appeared in The Frogmen. Since then, Hamilton has worked closely with costume designers and prop masters to supply watches to filmmakers.
Hamilton Watches, recognized for their innovative and precise timepieces, as well as their leading role in the worlds of aviation and cinema return to the big screen this summer in 20th Century Fox’s new blockbuster, Independence Day: Resurgence, twenty years after the first movie Independence Day. 50
Khaki X-Wind Chronoquartz GMT
The Khaki X-Wind line gets a blast of fresh air with a new caliber that combines a 24-hour GMT and a chronograph. A sturdy 46 mm stainless steel case features a screw-down crown and rotating bezel, framing coaxial hour and minute counters set against a powerful black dial background.
The origin of the GMT function started when pilots began to fly long distances and change time zones, and needed a watch that could track both local time and time in their country of origin. Worn by pilots and travelers alike, GMT functions are very appreciated for their practicality and simple use: one look at the watch and you instantly know the time in Tokyo, Zurich or New York.
The multilevel black dial allows the eye to navigate between the three counters, the date window at 3 oâ€™clock or the turning inner bezels. The multidimensional theme is also reflected around the case, with an X-shape visible between the pushers and crowns. The orange tip of the seconds hand brightens up the dial, while a rotating bezel and screw-down crowns add the final design touch on this pilot watch. The Khaki X-Wind Chronoquartz GMT is available with brown leather strap, black rubber strap or stainless steel bracelet. 53

Frederique Constant’s motto is « Live your passion ». Do you adopt this slogan also in your life? Or what is yours? Gwyneth Paltrow: I am an absolute believer in living one passion. I feel incredibly fortunate that my work has always stemmed out of passion and continues to do so. Which Frederique Constant watch is your favorite one? Gwyneth Paltrow: Difficult to answer, because I like a lot! But my favorites are the Manufacture Slimline Moonphase for Ladies and the new Delight Automatic models. Describe your first watch, who bought it, where you wore it and any memories you have it? Gwyneth Paltrow: My first watch was a swatch watch. It was the 80’s and they were a massive trend.

The narrative principle is non-linear; it is made of ruptures, digs, leaps, cross-references and unpredictable connections. An archipelagic and metamorphic approach in which the thought overflows undisciplined and doesn’t follow in the wake of tradition. It’s an intentionally unsystematic thought, therefore alive. If it’s true that thoughts organized in closed systems are pitiless because “they gradually exclude the unexpressed and leave it dry behind them, until it dies of thirst” (E. Canetti), it’s then necessary to break these systems to fertilize new meanings and cultivate the unexpected.
MAGICL ANTERNS “Literature was not born the day when a boy crying ‘wolf, wolf ’ came running out of the Neanderthal valley with a big gray wolf at his heels; literature was born on the day when a boy came crying ‘wolf, wolf ’ and there was no wolf behind him.” (V. Nabokov) n this collection, all the clothes tell a story steeped in wonder, phantasmagoria and unorthodoxy. Such stories don’t mimetically represent reality. They rather act as magic lanterns, as distorting mirrors, altering languages, signs and consolidated codes. As in a game, the attempt is “to destroy, for a moment, the stability of perception so that the lucid conscience is forced to undergo a kind of sensual panic” (R. Caillois).

Once again, Diesel shakes the watch world to its core with collection of outsized, rebellious styles for Fall 2016.

Deadeye salutes vintage military instrumentation, encompassing fine technical details such as an overt crystal enclosure and hinging crown card. Diesel signature details like distressed leather and riveted cases are rendered in a military color palette of army green, black, gunmetal, and stainless steel. Even the Diesel man needs to dress up sometimes, and Rasp does the job with a nod to the Diesel man’s wild side. A thick gunmetal bracelet, knurled case and textured asymmetrical dial with gold, black, white, and red accents turn the traditional men’s dress watch into a rebellious statement with military-inspired detailing and functionality. A coin-edged rose gold-tone case and brushed black dial with elongated stud indexes gives an edgy, but feminine, feel to the newest Diesel ladies’ platform, Bitty. Far from diminutive, despite the name, Bitty offers an oversized case and textured black leather strap in a trend-making, black-and-rose gold color story that screams Diesel.

intrusion from mud and debris, this model can also resist heavy vibration and features a G-SHOCK Triple Sensor with compass bearing, altimeter/barometer, and thermometer.

Combining elements inspired by military design, the GWG-1000MH is the embodiment of the seamless synergy between maharishi and G-SHOCK. The limited edition GWG-1000MH launched with an event instore at maharishi London on 3rd November. In conjunction with the release, the maharishi team has produced an exclusive short video to celebrate this latest collaboration – sharing the smoky aesthetic from maharishi’s AW16 campaign.

The Fall/Winter 2016 women’s watch offering features rose gold, stainless steel and silver nishes combined with striking details, such as mesh straps and metallic star prints on the dial. The men’s watch collection mixes versatile styles with preppy, athletic touches, including croc-embossed leather, stainless steel links, chronograph sub-dials and dual time faces. Sporty silicone styles include Tommy Hil ger’s iconic ag logo on the strap or dial.
