The Sky’s the Limit. The Big Bang Unico Sky Blue brings together three classic Hublot elements – the iconic Big Bang model, its Unico manufacture movement and ceramic, the Swiss watch luxury watchmaker’s material of choice.
Here comes the summer! As the world’s most popular colour, blue symbolises new horizons, kindles a desire to get away and inspires new avenues for exploration. Fly the colours of the Big Bang Unico Sky Blue 42 mm on your wrist. A shimmering sky lends a light, playful hint of freedom to the ceramic of the case.
Ceramic, a material in which Hublot has become an expert. In 2019, Hublot created brightly coloured ceramic in a patented world first. Since then, the brand has had almost every Pantone colour at its disposal. The Big Bang Unico Sky Blue has turned this feat of innovation into your new go-to material.
The dial, like a cloudless sky, reveals the column wheel of the HUB1280 manufacture calibre, a self-winding chronograph movement with a 72-hour power reserve. As its Unico manufacture movement gently tracks the easy passage of time, the Big Bang Unico Sky Blue evokes a sense of brightness and timelessness.
The white luminescent hands and indices, which appear suspended, mark the hours spent in joyous reunions. The brand’s six iconic screws stand out against the blue of the bezel, which is also made from polished and satin-finished ceramic. Developed using the brand’s unique processes to produce this exclusive colour and unrivalled comfort, this high-tech material is hypoallergenic and adapts to the temperature of the skin.
Lightweight and ultra-resistant to oxidation and scratching, it is the perfect companion for all your summer activities. The new Summer edition of the Big Bang Unico comes with a Velcro strap with sports fastener, as well as its iconic lined natural rubber version with a titanium deployant buckle for those long evenings under the stars.
The dream of possessing our own little corner of blue sky is universal! This limited edition of just 200 pieces will be available for € 24.900, from the e-boutique and at the Maison’s 130 points of sale located in some of the world’s most iconic and exclusive cities.

French Maison Chanel’s emblematic Premiére timepiece has made its return after over three decades. As the luxury Maison’s first horological effort, the original watch was conceived in 1987 by Jacques Helleu, the Maison’s Artistic Director at the time.
The re-issued Premiére model honors the original watch with subtle design upgrades. Attired in an octagonal silhouette that references the N°5 perfume flacon, the case is crafted from steel before being doused in a coating of 18k yellow gold, complete with an onyx cabochon-set crown.
Adding to the Premiére’s many iconic features, the bracelet is presented as a chain strap with interwoven leather straps that are typically used on Chanel’s iconic quilted handbags. The center of the watch houses a lustrously smooth black lacquer dial, free of indices, numerals, date display, and hands.
Lightly embellishing the watch face are two minimalistic gold hands and monochromatic branding. Beating inside the timepiece, its high-precision quartz movement powers all of the watch’s time-telling functions with a 3 ATM water resistance.
The Chanel Premiére Édition Originale is currently available at selected Chanel boutiques and selected stores wordwide for the price of $5,500 USD/ £5,200 GBP. To purchase or to read more about the timepiece, come into the beautiful world of Chanel.
Girard-Perregaux is joined by Aston Martin to premiere a special edition of the Maison’s signature Laureato model. For the first time, the timepiece will be attired in a green ceramic build and will be offered in both 42mm and 38mm case sizes in a limited quantity.
Girard-Perregaux and Aston Martin proudly present the Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition, the first Laureato timepiece to feature a green ceramic case and bracelet. This is the latest collaboration between the prestigious Swiss maison and the British ultra-luxury marque, two institutions with a rich history of creating iconic products that stand the test of time, through excellence in design, materials and craftsmanship.
While some of the materials used for this new timepiece are ultra-modern, the essence of Girard-Perregaux’s inaugural 1975 Laureato, which translates to English as ‘Graduate’ and was named following the 1970s film, has been respected. The highly exclusive Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition is offered in a choice of two case sizes – 42mm and 38mm – and limited to just 388 and 188 examples.
Sleek, contemporary and notably elegant, the design of the Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition encompasses elements inspired by Aston Martin cars, from powerful engines to sleek contours and lightweight construction. It is this latter trait which encouraged Girard-Perregaux to equip this new model with skeletonised ‘baton’ type hour and minute hands, both light and functional. The watch dial is presented in a cross-hatch design, a diamond-like pattern found on Aston Martin’s original ‘AM’ logo used from 1921-1926, as well as the quilted leather upholstery found in some of the marque’s high-performance vehicles.
In the same way that the timeless design of the Laureato has attracted the admiration of enlightened commentators and watch aficionados, Aston Martin has repeatedly shown its prowess for sculpting iconic shapes that have never lost their appeal. Whether it’s a DB4 of the early 60s, a DBS V8 of the 70s or a modern-day Vantage, all models share the same attributes of elegance, luxury and performance.
Aston Martin’s iconic association with the colour green began many decades ago, when manufacturers raced in the colours of their country of origin, in this case British Racing Green. Since then, Aston Martin racing cars have competed in various shades of green before resting on the now familiar Aston Martin Racing Green, which adorns its Formula 1® cars. It was a logical conclusion for this co-branded timepiece to be dressed in green, a colour that evokes thoughts of performance and success.
Patrick Pruniaux, CEO of Girard-Perregaux, said: “From the outset, the design of the Laureato was distinctive, yet cohesive. Its styling encompassed geometric, clean-cut lines while exhibiting a slightly gentle character. Contrasting polished and satin finished surfaces, an ergonomic integrated bracelet and, of course, as always, an in-house movement… these are the essential ingredients which have made the Laureato a remarkable success. The same ingredients are much in evidence with the new Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition, along with the addition of an interesting, highly contemporary material”.
Marek Reichman, Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, of Aston Martin added: “Our goal was to conceive an advanced luxury product. Interestingly, Patrick and I spent a lot of time talking about the folklore of the Laureato and the design play between shape and proportion of its iconic bezel. When he shared GP’s exploration into the optical properties of technical ceramics, micro beads and microns, I became quite enchanted by this idea of the past becoming the future. We’re always exploring combinations of technology, colour, and materials in Aston Martin sports cars to enrich performance, functionality and owner enjoyment. Together we’ve fused these ideas and attributes to generate this cool new Aston Martin GP Laureato”.
Both Aston Martin and Girard-Perregaux operate within a world of excellence, where time-honoured skills imbue products with a distinctive character and an enduring quality, creating rare objects that confer lasting appeal. The Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition is the latest offering from this unique collaboration, which began in 2021.
Presented in a 42mm or 38mm model, the new timepiece will be available to buy worldwide in selected Girard-Perregaux retailers from June 2023. For more information, come into the beautiful and timeless world of Girard-Perregaux.
Iconic Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin has unveiled the Blast Tourbillon Blue & Gold, the first of its series to be featured in this colourway. Dedicated to contemporary explorers, the Blast Collection debuted in 2020 as an embodiment of the house’s ‘Haute Horlogerie is an everlasting adventure’ philosophy.
Ulysse Nardin was the son of a watchmaker who founded his own company in Le Locle in Switzerland in 1846. Now more than 175 years later, the watchmaker company has more than earned its spurs through the technically beautifully executed, quality chronometers. The anchor in the logo represents the brand’s rich history with the maritime industry. The same goes for the Blast Tourbillon Blue & Gold.
Playing with transparency and authenticity, the UN-172 Manufacture caliber houses an automatic silicon flying tourbillon that oscillates at a frequency of 2.5 Hz. It also offers a three-day power reserve while nestled in a unique cage that is X-shaped. This allows light to penetrate the openwork watch, illuminating the extraordinary technical achievement that this uncompromising time mechanism represents.
Gekleed in een 45mm kast met afwisselend 18k roségoud en blauw PVD titanium, is deze specifieke kleurstelling door het huis ‘explosief en innovatief’ genoemd.
The iconic codes that express the unique personality of the Blast collection are all present in this new timepiece: the rectangular frame, the signature ‘three lugs’ that fit perfectly into the strap, the colored bezel, the verticality of the movement with the loop, as well as the platinum micro-rotor at 12 o’clock and the flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock.
Crafted with alternating components in rose gold and blue PVD titanium, and with both polished and satin-finished surfaces, the powerful 45mm case is water resistant to 50 meters. This new model comes with a blue velvet rubber strap along with an 18k rose gold and blue PVD titanium folding clasp.
The new Blast Tourbillon is a clear confirmation of Ulysse Nardin’s innovative prowess. As an independent brand that dares to take its elite watchmaking business to unexplored paths, Ulysse Nardin inspires and forges the watchmaking of tomorrow.
The Ulysse Nardin Blast Tourbillon in ‘Blue & Gold’, retailing for $67,000 USD, is available through the Maison’s own boutiques and select retailers worldwide.

Prices range of the Hublot Classic Fusion Original from $ 6,500 to $ 24,100 USD, with the larger sizes running on the MHUB111- automatic movement, while the 33mm version is powered by a HUB2913 quartz movement.

Assouline Publishers has revealed its newest title celebrating independent Swiss watch manufacturer De Berthune. Releasing on the 20th anniversary of the company, ‘De Bethune: The Art of Watchmaking‘ dives into the intricacies of the atelier led by legendary watchmaker and co-founder, Denis Flageollet. Blurring the lines between traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design, the brand specializes in crafting both impossibly modern and technically advanced timepieces.
Twenty years ago, the haute horological world welcomed De Bethune. Showcasing the technical ingenuity of master watchmaker and co-founder Denis Flageollet, De Bethune immediately established itself as an outlier with a unique ability to blur the lines between traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design, mining history to create a brand both impossibly modern and technically advanced.
Flageollet’s objective has always been the glorious and elusive goal of chronometric perfection and no watch brand has been as disruptive as De Bethune. In just two decades, the company has brought to life thirty in-house movements built upon the foundations of mechanical simplicity and the fundamentals of traditional watchmaking.
With annual production ranging between 150 and 250 watches per year, De Bethune is one of the rarest and most exclusive watch brands in the world. The limited production has allowed the brand to produce the most sophisticated and innovative timepieces possible featuring extendable designs and emerging materials while preserving an intimate link with its customers.
To own a De Bethune watch is to have a stewardship of an object with enduring totemic and historical significance.
The book is penned by Arthur Tochot, senior European editor at Hodinkee and Academy member of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève with a foreword from Wei Koh, the founder of Revolution magazine. Additional contributions come from De Bethune CEO Pierre Jacques as well as watch industry titans and enthusiasts such as Jean Arnault, Aurel Bacs, Swizz Beatz, Jean-Claude Biver, Michael Strahan, and more.
When asked what watch collectors in the next century will take from this golden age of timekeeping, you can say with certainty that they will recognize Denis Flageollet as one of the greatest horological minds of all time. To own a De Bethune watch is to have a stewardship of an object with enduring totemic and historical significance.

This winter, a new chapter begins for Cartier in Amsterdam with the opening of the new boutique at the P.C. Hooftstraat 129. Studio Parisien carried the boutique’s design from the facade to the interiors, inspired and supported by Dutch local talents.
The boutique’s playful and welcoming ceramic façade designed by Amsterdam-based artist Eva Crebolder, is inspired by the perfect imperfections of the Amsterdam’s canal houses. All ceramic elements were produced in the world’s oldest operating tile factory (Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum).
Stepping inside, visitors encounter delicate touches such as Atelier Tollis columns in organic shapes. They have been sculpted and coloured as a re-interpretation of the bricks that define the city of Amsterdam. In the back, a colourful wall panelling pattern refers to De Stijl, influenced by Mondriaan and his use of primary colours. Sustainable French oak parquet shows a pattern based on those in Vermeer’s art.
Upstairs in the salon, ceiling coves call to mind the spatula- centred painting techniques of Van Gogh. An airy staircase opens the path to a dreamy and light area located on the boutique’s first floor. Here, a masterpiece by Atelier Midavaine made of lacquer and mother of pearl punctuates the rise from the canals to the polder cloudy landscapes.
In addition to Cartier’s two main disciplines – jewelery and watches – you will find, for example, leather goods, stationery and porcelain represented in the boutique. The custom-made displays show the special story behind the Cartier Icons. Here you will find your favorite Santos, Tank, Pasha, Trinity, Love, Juste un Clou, Panthère or Ballon Bleu exactly what you are looking for.
On the upper level a courtyard garden can be found, designed by the architects of MAAK space from Amersfoort. The new Amsterdam boutique meets the highest ecological standards as directed by the globally recognized Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
Cartier in the Netherlands
The link between Cartier and the Netherlands dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. Cartier exhibited a number of important jewellery pieces in Hotel des Indes in The Hague in 1925. They were designs that had been included in the Exposition des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in Paris that year.
The official history of Cartier in the Netherlands began when a boutique opened its doors on the Herengracht 442 in 1975, on the corner of Amsterdam’s Koningsplein, in premises that had housed a range of jewellers since the beginning of the last century. In 1994, Cartier moved from Koningsplein to the corner of the Hobbemastraat and P.C. Hooftstraat. Since that first boutique in 1994, two other premises were occupied on the same street in 2007, at numbers 132 and 134.
