9 new luxury classical timepieces with unexpected elements01: MODERN GEOMETRYGold self-winding timepieces really are a dime a dozen, but none of them of which look like the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Sandblasted in rose gold. We prefer the way the angular geometry on the Octo's faceted case and rectangular links is emphasised by its ultra-slim form (5.15mm), and softened through the 40mm watch's round bezel. Our favourite touch, though, is its sandblasted finish, which gives the rose gold an almost-industrial edge.Wool suit and cotton shirt, from Gucci.02: BONE STRUCTUREAt the apex of Cartier's revamped Santos collection for 2018, the 39.8mm Santos de Cartier Skeleton Watch in pink gold combines the house's haute horlogerie codes and among its iconic bread-and-butter models. The brand's signature Roman numeral skeleton architecture complements the bold structure of the updated Santos case, that's more flowing lines - its once perfectly square bezel, as an illustration, now flows in the bracelet. A rhodium finish provides each Roman numerals, that are actually movement bridges, a dark, matte look providing you with visual contrast and makes for greater legibility.Wool and leather sweater, from Bottega Veneta. Silk scarf, from Hermes.03: LUNAR PULLRequiring multiple high-temperature firings to produce, grand feu enamel dials usually are relatively stark, hence the glossy finish usually takes centre stage. The Breguet Classique 7787, however, is surely an exception. But while there's plenty taking, it somehow all blends with inside a quirky way - that numbered 38-hour power indicator arc between five and 6 o'clock, by way of example, and the moon phase with its 29.5-day scale representing the volume of days from a single new moon to another. Operated by a mechanical movement, it's all in a flexible 39mm rose gold case.Wool suit, cotton shirt, and patent leather shoes, from Boss.04: GOING PLATINUMFor people who enjoy a smattering of bling, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin in platinum gives an interesting bundle of contradictions. While its 41mm octagonal case and bracelet offer the watch its familiar refined yet rugged feel, its striking tourbillon and brushed platinum case, topped having an unmissable diamond-studded bezel, imbue it with a flamboyant dressiness. Its slim, 8.95mm-thick case and soft-grey Petite Tapisserie engraved dial balance the flashier touches.Wool-blend jacket and cotton shirt, from Etro.05: LEAP IN TIMEFeaturing three jumping discs displaying the hour and minutes, the IWC Pallweber pocket watch was a true novelty if this first emerged in 1885. Greater century later, within the brand's 150th-anniversary year, the wristwatch it inspires is simply as much a breath of outdoors. These times round, the standard time display is about against a blue lacquered dial in just a 45mm steel case, and it is run by the modern manual-winding Calibre 94200.Wool pullover, from Salvatore Ferragamo. Suede hat, from Loewe.06: FIGURE STUDYMore than two centuries ago, watchmaker Pierre Jaquet-Droz developed a pocket watch having a time display in the shape of a figure eight. Today, that has become the signature in the Grande Seconde, the flagship model of his eponymous brand. What's best is how that minimalistic look is retained while more complications are included in enough time display, as with true of the self-winding Grande Seconde Moon Ivory Enamel, a 43mm red gold watch with a moon phase with a peripheral date display, set against an ivory grand feu enamel dial.Poplin shirt, cotton trousers, rabbit felt hat, and leather belt, edox watches from Hermes.07: watches Coded in TIMEMontblanc introduces its latest edition of the Nicolas Rieussec monopusher chronograph, which had been first launched in 2008. This series gets its name through the French watchmaker Rieussec, and it's inspired by his inking chronograph of 1821. When the chronograph is at operation, the chronograph hands remain stationary, even though the seconds and minutes discs turn. The model's latest incarnation could be the Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph, a 44.8mm steel timepiece that was updated with refined features for example guilloche dial accents, slimmer black Arabic numerals and stepped lugs.Wool-silk sweater, from Dunhill.08: GREY AREAThe sunburst grey dial from the Blancpain Villeret Complete Calendar 40mm goes over all the watch's aesthetic rather well: It is just a touch bolder and more modern than traditional silver, and yet commemorate a whole world of difference. Against this background, look for many dial details that never feel cluttered - for instance , a moon phase, date circle marked by a serpentine hand, and day and month windows. A computerized movement powers this white gold timepiece.Wool and polyester suit, and cotton shirt, from Dolce & Gabbana.09: watch sales STRIKING PRESENCEIn the A. Lange & Sohne catalogue, the Zeitwerk surely is unique probably the most which consists of unorthodox aesthetic. It shows any time using a central winged bridge housing three jumping hour and minute discs. Additionally, the version shown here, the Zeitwerk Striking Time, includes a chiming mechanism that sees it striking once around the hour each quarter. Housed within a 44.2mm white gold or platinum case, the watch is run by a hand-wound movement which has a constant-force escapement that keeps energy flow steady.Velvet jacket and cotton shirt, from Brunello Cucinelli.PHOTOGRAPHY DARREN CHANG ART DIRECTION FAZLIE HASHIM STYLING DOLPHIN YEO(RELATED: These 7 new stylish rectangular replica watches buck the round-face mainstream)Advantages and drawbacks originally published on The Peak Singapore. replica bentley breitling watch
