The most mechanical: Raymond Weil Freelancer 42

Raymond Weil Freelancer 42

 

Mr. likes mechanics and precision? There is nothing like the brand new Freelancer from Raymond Weil, a real skeleton watch at a price that defies all competition. The absence of a dial makes it possible to admire the details of each gear, to see the watch's escapement beating, while appreciating the outstanding pearl finish on all the bridges and on the plate. For this novelty, the brand has developed a bezel with a gunmetal finish that perfectly matches the genuine leather strap. At this price and with this level of finishing, this Freelancer is simply unbeatable.

SELECTION FOR HER

The most frivolous: Chopard Happy Stars 36

Chopard Happy Stars 36

 

You can love fine watches and jewelry and not take yourself too seriously! This is just what suits Chopard to a tee. Its famous Happy is the best example. In a delicate steel case of only 36 mm, we discover a deep blue dial, finely guilloched, above which dance the sun, the moon and three stars. A lyrical ode to the passing of time, a player, a combination of the movement of the watch and that of the stars, the Happy remains unique, as will be each woman who wears it.

A case that echoes the geometry of the Place Vendôme, two gold baton hands that stand out gracefully and harmoniously from a dial of absolute black: the Première by Chanel plays the score of sobriety and absolute elegance. Ultra-feminine and minimalist chic, the piece is fitted with a rubber strap that perfectly reproduces the touch and feel of velvet - with the advantages of a rubber that is unalterable, wear-resistant, in all latitudes.
