Métiers d’Art Mécaniques Ajourées, Vacheron Constantin Another brand featuring at the charity event Only Watch 2015, Vacheron Constantin renews its support with a unique Métiers d’Art Mécaniques Ajourées timepiece, beautified by an enamelled red ring. This creation links two worlds that evolved in similar ways in the late 19th century: architecture and watchmaking. Based on one of the stellar in-house movements, Calibre 4400, this sculptural work with its airy, transparent and finely arched construction exalting the art of openworking, vividly evokes the large European railway stations symbolising the golden age of the industrial revolution. The engraver’s technique is reinvented to resemble that of the sculptor, revealing fascinating light effects conveyed through a three-dimensional architecture enhanced by Grand Feu enamelling. Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the movement displays remarkable precision and offers an impressive 65-hour power reserve that is extremely user-friendly for a hand-wound calibre. www.vacheron-constantin.com

LVCEA Collection, Bulgari The LVCEA line is one of the most beloved signature collections around the world, and for 2015 Bulgari presents new features inspired by the eternal link of light and time. The newest editions come in alligator leather blue-sapphire, bordeaux-pink, or powder-pink coloured straps, to personalise any look. These vivid renditions of the collection are complemented by white or pink-gold, and the blue-sapphire and bordeauxpink feature precious diamond bezels and gold links. As well, they turn with a refined silver satiné soleil dial, recalling the ancient Roman sundial that inspired the collection. Meanwhile, LVCEA in powder-pink is paired with pink-gold, lustrously shining with a silver opaline dial. The classic 33mm has been increased to a pronounced 36mm, and in its most precious form, the pink-gold LVCEA features the pink-gold 36 mm bezel and bi-coloured precious metal bracelet, as it glows with a mother-of-pearl face and shines in perfect diamond indexes. www.bulgari.com/en-gb/lvcea
