Omega

Seamaster Aqua Terra “Ultra Light”

Omega ambassador Rory McIlroy helped develop this ingenious sports watch that weighs just 55g using the fabric strap. Fashioned almost entirely from aeronautical grade Gamma Titanium, calculated reduction in the amount of material used to create the dial made a difference too. The ergonomic push-in telescopic crown stows away inside the case for zero restriction, while the matte finish reduces glare from the sun. The Aqua Terra makes bold use of colours in red green or blue on the aluminium seconds hand, Seamaster logo, quarter hour indexes and strap stitching. On the inside, the “Ultra Light” is driven by Omega’s first-ever titanium movement. All the bridges and the main plate are in ceramised titanium for less friction between the components, giving the movement its special dark grey colour.

Montblanc

TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph Limited Edition 1500

Honouring the spirit and style of motor racing’s glory days, the Timewalker limited edition is crafted with “distressed” steel, a special finish achieved by treating the case with a black-coating and then manually wasing and brushing it to give each timepiece its very own patina and unique appearance. This vintage look matches perfectly with the black and grey “reverse panda” dial, black ceramic bezel, black rhodium-coated hands and the brand-new black Nubuck calf leather strap. Powered by the Montblanc Manufacture chronograph calibre MB 25.10 featuring traditional finishing such as “Côtes de Genève”, circular graining, blue screws, and designed in the shape of a steering wheel. The movement is equipped with a traditional column wheel, a horizontal coupling as well as a stop-second mechanism, allowing the precise setting of the time.
