The time change, any excuse to offer one of the flagship models of the new watch season… whose watchwords are sporty and robust watches
TAG Heuer, Carbon Aquaracer
It comes in three models decked out in carbon fiber, injected randomly, the models are all unique, and are distinguished by touches of blue, yellow or pink gold. Its 41mm titanium case will charm those in search of lightness, while its nylon strap with blue stitching fits squarely on all wrists.
Jaeger-Lecoultre, Polaris Chronograph World Time
A watch as elegant and sporty as the one who wears it. On the sporty side, it is equipped with a tachymeter bezel, which allows you to determine your speed over a fixed distance, while its nuanced blue shade blends perfectly with the steel of its bracelet.
Richard Mille RM 6702 automatic Alexis Pinturault
One of the five versions of the RM 67-02. We like the TPT Carbon and Quartz case, the automatic skeletonized winding movement, and we appreciate its lightness and resistance. The house has specially developed its strap, woven specifically for great elasticity, for sportsmen. The absence of a closing buckle and optimal ventilation prevent the watch from slipping, to guarantee union with its owner!
Blancpain, Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Annuel (43 mm)
With its robust movement, rotating bezel and clear readability, this new model is suitable in all circumstances. Its sports features are complemented by an indication of the day. It is proposed on sail canvas strap or metal bracelet.
Bell & Ross, La BR V2-93 I
This sporty take on the travel watch with a diameter of 41 mm has a protected crown and a GMT hand that adjusts independently of the hour hand, displaying up to three time zones. A feature that makes this watch an indispensable tool for travel lovers. Chic to the end, it is dressed in a rubber strap, also available in steel.
Rolex, Oyster Perpetual Explorer II
A 24-hour hand has been added to this new model to make room for a second-time-zone without disturbing the traditional hour hand. Its steel case protects a Rolex self-winding mechanical movement that is as always reliable, precise and well hidden – since only Rolex watchmakers can access it. Another remarkable point, the three-mesh steel bracelet is equipped with a safety clasp that prevents any unintentional opening.
