On the cover: Visionary, technically advanced and superbly beautiful are the words that best describe Ulysse Nardin’s Imperial Blue watch. Our cover photo demonstrates the technical mastery and watchmaking prowess of Ulysse Nardin in incomparable elegance. The timepiece, which features as flying tourbillon and Grande Sonnerie Westminster Carillon that combines a minute repeater with musical majesty, pushes the limits of miniaturization and cutting-edge innovation to new heights. For the creation of this watch, the masters at Ulysse Nardin had to overcome the issue of energy management and power to ensure an always-operating sonnerie. Two barrels regulate the energy for the sound, which features Westminster chimes played on four notes to indicate the time. By releasing the repeater slide, a dance of hammers and gongs comes to life—physically and audibly. Blue sapphire gives the watch its lustrous hue. Just 20 pieces of the watch, with UN-970 caliber and 50 hours of power reserve, will ever be made.

LM1 XIA HANG Even the most seasoned watch collector will take a triple look at the MB&F LM1 Xia Hang watch. With its tiny alien seated nicely on the dial beneath the domed sapphire crystal, this watch is a revolutionary world’s first. Indeed, the mechanical marvel is the first truly vertical power reserve indicator. When the watch is fully wound, the alien sits erect in his spot, as the power reserve winds down, the alien slumps his head lower and lower, until the owner winds the watch, breathing new life into the figure on the dial and he once again sits tall. This Legacy Machine no. 1 Xia Hang was a lifelong dream of Max Büsser – brought to reality by his team of friends and artist Xia Hang, after whose sculptures the 1/8” tall alien is fashioned. The watch also features a floating balance wheel and offers dual time indication. Legacy Machine no. 1 Xia Hang is a limited edition of 12 pieces in red gold and 12 pieces in white gold. $107,000
