The epitome of uncompromising performance, Zenith is back on the watchmaking scene with an all-terrain chronograph, the DEFY EXTREME. This exceptional timepiece, which is accurate to 1/100th of a second, is an emblem for those who dare to go beyond their limits. It is functional and undeniably futuristic, reinterpreting Zenith classics through a masculine and modern prism.

Made to discover, to explore, to travel

The cushion-shaped 45 mm case recalls the origins of the range. Sharper lines, more rounded edges, chronograph function, the El Primero 9004 automatic movement, frequency of 5 Hz, 50-hour power reserve… The DEFY EXTREME is a continuation of the DEFY EXTREME line in an ultra-powerful version. Its water resistance has thus increased from 10 ATM (100 metres) to 20 ATM, the push-buttons have been reinforced, and the hands, significantly broadened. It features a chronograph that is accurate to 1/100th of a second, unmatched ruggedness, optimal readability thanks to the markers coated with SuperLuminova, and interchangeable straps. In short, it has all to accompany daring people off the beaten track in their explorations on land and under water.

One watch, three variations

There are three versions to choose from: a micro-blasted titanium case with black dial accents; a polished/brushed titanium case with blue dial accents; and a titanium and rose gold case with rose gold dial accents. A notable aspect of this stunning timepiece is the openwork dial that daringly combines sportiness and watchmaking mechanics. Each model is supplied with three straps -one in titanium, one in rubber and one in Velcro®-, accessories fitted with the intuitive quick-change strap system to ensure that the chronograph looks outstanding in any situation.

Sensuality, femininity, elegance: once again this year, Maison Piaget dazzles us with extraordinary new pieces. Designed for inspiring and active women, these timepieces embellish the muses for whom they were created. With a vintage design taking its cues from the 1970s, the two new pieces from the Limelight Gala collection make tsavorites and sapphires dance around the dial for a bewitching spectacle. Bright, elegant, bold… The Limelight Gala Rainbow and the Limelight Gala Mother-of-Pearl come in limited editions of 300 pieces. A closer look at these unique creations.

An extraordinary design

Powered by a self-winding mechanical movement, the Limelight Gala has been captivating watch lovers for nearly half a century. From the vibrant shades of the Rainbow to the elegant discretion of the Mother-of-Pearl, these two small models will delight amazing women. Their secret? The cut-down setting that magnifies the brilliance of the stones. Obtaining large quantities of stones in gradually increasing shades and sizes is an extremely tedious task in which Piaget excels. The watchmaker draws much of its inspiration from nature: foliage, flowers, bark, leather grains and much more adorn Piaget bracelets and dials.

Goldwork, setting… The look of Piaget timepieces is easily recognisable. Precision, meticulous attention to detail: the Maison’s bracelets and dials unsurprisingly stand out at the forefront of the watchmaking scene.

Featuring exceptional technique and authenticity, the two models offer women a choice between extravagance, boldness and strength, and elegance, refinement and distinction.

Handmade gold bracelets and dials

What makes Piaget unique? It is one of the last watch manufacturers to master the ancestral art of handcrafting gold bracelet. Similar to the making of haute-couture clothing, which is meticulous, delicate and incredibly technical, the making of a gold bracelet by hand is an invaluable heritage of the watchmaking of yesteryear that Piaget has strived to perpetuate. This traditional art from the 1960s has helped to build the reputation of a contemporary watch brand that has managed to revive centuries-old knowhow.

With a handcrafted and hand-engraved dial, each watch is a unique piece. It takes two hours to complete the decoration on the dial, while the engraving on the bracelet requires eight hours of work.

The Limelight Gala Rainbow and the Limelight Gala Mother-of-Pearl bring Piaget boldness to the wrist. Available in two variations, the collection adapts to wearers and can be worn in all kinds of situations. Prefer delicate and discreet? The 26 mm Mother-of-Pearl model with its white alligator strap is the perfect choice. In search of vibrancy and boldness? Go for the 32 mm Rainbow model and its 18-carat rose gold bracelet!

Because of the current health situation, Watches and Wonders, one of the world’s largest trade fairs dedicated to luxury watches, is taking place both online and offline for the first time. The first part is being held virtually in Geneva from 4 to 13 April, followed by a live event in Shanghai from 14 to 18 April.

The watch industry's most prestigious brands participate in the trade show to present their latest models, which are true examples of technical achievement. Here is Molitor’s selection of some of the most original pieces by the exhibitors.

Two new designs for the Pasha de Cartier

The Pasha de Cartier collection is welcoming two new models: a more feminine 30 mm piece and a more masculine 41 mm chronograph version.

The 30 mm version, just for ladies, retains all the details that make the Pasha: from the customisable engraved initials hidden under the crown cover to the interchangeable bracelets. It comes in steel or gold, with or without diamonds, and is driven by a quartz movement.

On the masculine side, Cartier’s new 41 mm chronograph was designed to time records. Its diver-style unidirectional rotating bezel and two cabochon-set push-buttons give it a sporty look while remaining true to the original design. The new chronograph is available in yellow gold or stainless steel and contains a Manufacture Cartier 1904-CH MC movement visible through the sapphire crystal case back.

Moreover, thanks to an adaptation of Cartier’s own QuickSwitch system, the bracelets on each model can be changed by simply pushing a button. In addition, the SmartLink system allows the metal bracelet to be adjusted without tools.

IWC Schaffhausen unveils its Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41

Fitted with a 41 mm stainless steel case and a blue or green dial, the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 houses IWC-manufactured calibre 69385, a movement designed for reliability and flawless precision that can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back.

With the new EasX-CHANGE system and the assortment of calfskin, rubber or stainless steel bands, changing straps is quick and easy. This versatility means that the watch adapts to any style, activity or environment.

Hublot embraces transparent luxury

The Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire is the first Big Bang featuring an integrated case and bracelet, both of which are crafted in sapphire. The bridges are also sapphire, making the piece completely transparent. The technically advanced watch gives an impression of incredible lightness.

“It took us five years to bring our first sapphire cases to life – and almost as long for the bracelet. Producing both from sapphire and integrating them together is the pinnacle of the in-depth work undertaken by all of Hublot's teams. We are proud to be the ones writing the first lines in this new chapter in the history of materials”, Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO.

After working so hard, it was only logical for Hublot to combine this revolutionary creation with one of its best movements. The 43 mm case houses the latest Hublot HUB6035 manufacture calibre with an automatic tourbillon.

Jaeger-LeCoultre, record after record

The new Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 has 11 complications, thus making it the most complex Reverso ever made. Moreover, it can even predict upcoming astronomical events such as supermoons and eclipses. These features make it the first wristwatch to offer such a deep reading of the cosmos.

This masterpiece required six years to develop and the filing of 12 patents, three of which are new. To accommodate the many complications, the engineers at Jaeger-LeCoultre used the two faces (recto and verso) of the reversible case and the two sides (interior and exterior) of the cradle. They also developed the ultra-compact hand-winding Jaeger-LeCoultre 185 calibre.

The Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 is also the first wristwatch to display information on four faces.
