A decade after the release of the Tambour Spin Time, Louis Vuitton has debuted the newest version of the jumping hour watch, the Tambour Spin Time Air. The self-winding timepiece displays 12 rotating cubes, which spin around to make way for the new hour. The collection features three designs for men (our favorite would have to be the black and yellow detailed dial with hour indicators that spell out “Louis Vuitton”) and four for women—including one with a rainbow of sparkling jewels surrounding its diamond crusted flower dial.
Roger Dubuis introduced us to the Excalibur Aventador S, a 45mm timepiece inspired by the Lamborghini Aventador S. Paired with a skeletonized face encased in sapphire crystal, the C-SMC carbon body (the same material used for its supercar alter ego), titanium, and red and blue details offer a sharp, futuristic aesthetic that is bound to catch the eye of any mechanically minded watch lover.
In addition to showcasing the new 2019 Geneva Days novelties collection, Hublot gave us a one-of-a-kind concept store at its boutique in the Miami Design district, where some of the brand’s rarest limited-edition pieces were displayed alongside an exhibition art by Michael Moebius including Blondie Bubblegum 2019 (Clint Eastwood) and Queen Bubblegum 2016 (Queen Elizabeth II). Presented in partnership with the Fondation Haute Horlogerie and Miami Design District Associates, the brand kicked off the weekend with a cocktail event.
Embodying the free-spirited, finely crafted attitude of a luxury mega yacht, Ulysse Nardin prepared its wearers for a seafaring voyage with the release of its Marine Mega Yacht timepiece. With an elegant maritime theme, the watch features a flying tourbillon modelled after a ship’s propeller, as well as an anchor, which rises and falls to indicate the power reserve. The perfect companion for the modern adventurer aspiring to live like Captain Nemo, the 44 mm case also displays a precise representation of the moon’s current phase, along with a tide volume indicator, which adjusts depending on the wearer’s location.
