From the left: the Pontos by Maurice Lacroix, the Time Walker from Mont blanc and the Excalibur Steel by Roger Dubuis.
Black and white thinkers have bad cards this winter because the most beautiful of all non-colors comes into the dials of men’s chronographs. The new luxury watches from the houses Maurice Lacroix, Breitling and Mont blanc glimmer gloomily and create an almost philosophical analogy to the river of time – That time is patient so we can look at the pieces in peace.
The “Chronomat 44 Flying Fish” from Breitling received his animal nicknames not by virtue of praiseworthy merit in fly fishing, but by Apnoetaucher Herbert Nitsch, who immersed an incredible 214 meters without oxygen bottle in 2007, thus setting a world record. As the top athletes move elegantly both over and under water, his trainer was nicknamed “fly fish”. In recognition of his performance, Breitling created a chronograph with a seventy-hour reserve and a water density of 500 meters, which is to remind the 32 records of the endurance sportsman.
Coloring game in gray: Pontos by Maurice Lacroix
Anyone who claims to combine graunuancen with each other is unencumbered, who should take a look at the current ” Pontos ” chronographs. The Swiss watchmaker Maurice Lacroix combined with the glossy-polished steel case and the anthracite-colored main blade in the sun-shading, namely three small dials in matt gray. Monochrome digits and pointers can be chosen for this purpose. – Gravekeptics, as long as they exist, are allowed to avoid gold-rhodium-plated variants.
(Time) measurement with two different measures: Time Walker Hemispheres from Mont Blanc
Only a few people are allowed to see the earth from one of their two pole caps. If you buy a “Time Walker World-Time Hemispheres”, no Polar Expedition will be donated, but you have the privilege to take a new perspective on our planet. Finally, on the dials of both models, a hemisphere with engraved time zones. Rarely have buyer groups been so clearly distributed. In addition to optical features, both models differ in their watch movements, which ensure a correct rotation of the 24-hour disc – a great gift for globetrotters with a sense of finesse.
As from a Single Cast: Midnight Monochrome by Harry Winston
With 42 millimeters of housing diagonals, the “Midnight Monochrome Automatic” is one of the striking models of the American traditional brand, but corrects this impression at the latest by looking at the dial. This is because of brushed white gold with highly polished poles, which strike an elegant bridge to the housing. The white-gold harmony is only interrupted by a date display on six and a slight elevation by three o’clock.
Everything on gray: La Monegasque Chronograph by Roger Dubuis
The “La Monegasque” series of the Geneva watchmaker Roger Dubuis is an homage to the Principality of the same name with its opulent casinos. The four rings of the dial imitate the contours of a roulette and bring a pinch of nerve to the wrist. The white gold models can be ordered alternatively with diamonds in the diamond or baguette cut. But also the elegant Excalibur made of steel and the sporty Pulsion chronograph of the Swiss watchmaking company are gray in the trend color.
But rather the “little black” on the wrist? The most beautiful luxury watches in the dark robe .
