Aesthetically Arresting Enamelled And Natural Mineral Dials

Hublot
Classic Fusion 42mm Elements
Hublot and The Hour Glass team up for a special edition of the Classic Fusion featuring natural stone dials, reinterpreting Hublot’s ground-breaking original 1980 timepiece that combines precious and modern materials on the recognisable design inspired by a ship’s porthole. In the spirit of the ‘Art of Fusion’, the 42mm Elements Hour Glass special edition features five dial variations carved from Tiger’s Eye, Red Jasper, Malachite, Turquoise and Lapis Lazuli. Housed within satin-finished and polished titanium cases with polished King Gold crowns and bezel lugs, the stone dials reveal their natural beauty and character. Each dial’s radiance is further amplified by the inclusion of polished King Gold H-shaped bezel screws and polished gold-plated hour, minute, and seconds hands. Each dial’s pattern is unique and no two watches are the same. Powered by the self-winding HUB1100 calibre with 42 hours of power reserve, visible through the satin-finished titanium case back via a sapphire window, each watch is released with a black alligator strap with 5N Gold stitching on black rubber and features a gold-plated stainless steel deployant buckle clasp.


H. Moser & Cie
Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept Lime Green
H. Moser & Cie. revisits fumé dials, imbuing this art of enamelling with a modern sensibility. The intense new colourway features an original hammered texture to eye-catching effect. In a 40mm steel case with an automatic movement, the Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept Lime Green combines the classic elegance of a 3-hand watch with a perfectly balanced aesthetic and striking charisma. Three different colour pigments are applied to create an ombré effect, the master enameller painstakingly applying the pigments one by one so that the colours oxidise and meld together when heated, without any pixellation. The translucent “Grand Feu” enamel dial is then fired 12 times to create the signature H. Moser & Cie. fumé effect. Each unique dial’s finish is remarkable; with a particularly striking texture and an intense hue, christened Lime Green, with no logo or indices. At its heart beats the HMC 200 automatic calibre with a 3-day power reserve, identifiable by the purple seconds hand and the blue balance bridge. A grey kudu leather strap lends the final touch of elegance.
