Recently, the world of Haute Horlogerie has shown the tendency of releasing luxury watches with dials showing off rich, vibrant colors – dark grey, burgundy, forest green, dusty champagne, and many others. The unusual, bright dials distinguish these opulent novelties from such world-famous brands as Vacheron Constantin, Hublot, and IWC.  

Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Middle East Edition

As part of the Dubai Watch Week 2019, Vacheron Constantin unveiled an exclusive model dedicated to the Middle East. A unique Patrimony luxury watch was created, especially for Middle Eastern boutiques of the brand. The lavish novelty received a platinum case of 42 x 7.65 millimeters and an amazingly beautiful dial in the color of an Eastern sunset.

Under the dial, there is a branded caliber 4400 AS. The movement decorated with the classic Côtes de Genève pattern is equipped with a manual winding and a 65-hour power reserve. The case is set on a dark blue alligator leather strap fitted with a platinum clasp.

Hublot Classic Fusion Special Edition Bronze Anticlockwise

Another new luxury watch presented at the Dubai Watch Week 2019 is a bold timekeeping device from Hublot – a new Classic Fusion model. The uniqueness of the new timepiece lies in that it is the first product in the history of Hublot wristwatches wholly made of bronze. Another premiere for the iconic brand – inside the bronze case, there is a mechanism with a counterclockwise movement.

The hour scale on the dial is indicated by Indian Arabic numerals, with marks on the 2-, 4-, 6-, 8-, and 10-o’clock positions that are turned to the left, taking into account the reverse course of the hands. According to the creators of the mechanism, in which the hands go in the opposite direction, it should prompt the owner to appreciate the impressive path the UAE, where the Dubai Watch Week takes place, has taken in its development.

In addition to resistance to magnetization and corrosion, bronze is an excellent choice since, over time, a natural patina appears on the surface of the metal, which gives it a beautiful color.

The case is set on a gray calf leather strap stitched with gold thread. The Classic Fusion Special Edition Bronze Anticlockwise series is limited to 100 copies.

IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Lewis Hamilton”

IWC has unveiled a luxury watch created in partnership with six-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton. This perpetual calendar from the Big Pilot’s collection combines black ceramics, rich Burgundy, and rose gold.

The case (46.5 x 15.5 mm) is manufactured of ceramic. Rose gold highlights such details as the hands, the caseback, the rotor and the winding crown. In addition to the dial, there is a textile strap also executed in the Burgundy color.

For the impeccable work of the Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Lewis Hamilton” model (Ref. IW503002), the branded caliber IWC 52615 equipped with automatic winding system Pellaton is responsible. The mechanism with two winding drums provides the fancy timekeeping device from IWC with a power reserve of 7 days. Besides hours, minutes, seconds, perpetual calendar function and power reserve indication, the mechanism supports the indication of lunar phases in the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Readings of the moon phase indicator do not need to be adjusted, as it is designed for 577.5 years of stable operation.
