enjoys something sporty, including a sport watch.

For fans of water sports, Seamaster Diver 300M from Omega can accompany you anywhere, from work to parties, from casual holidays to extreme water sports. Beyond its beautiful design, it comes with impressive water resistance of 300 metres, with ultimate precision from “Master Chronometer” and Omega’s in-house automatic calibre.
Swimming and snorkelling is perhaps too simple when it comes to Submersible BMG-Tech or PAM00799 from Panerai. At 47mm in size, with BMG-TECH™ case and Carbotech™ bezel, which are durable and lightweight, you can take this watch scuba-diving as it is water resistant to 300 metres, and has a power reserve of three days.
For the sleek and sporty, IWC presents Portofino Chronograph with a 42mm 18K red gold case, sun-ray brushed blue dial, two and a half hands, with a running seconds hand sub-dial located at the 9 o’clock position, sub-dial counters located at the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions, and the date at the 3 o’clock. The watch is powered by an automatic movement.
Men enjoy the great outdoors, but women can be daring, too,
through their make-up, clothes, accessories and watches.
Classic, sophisticated and never out of style, Vacheron Constantin presents Patrimony Manual-Winding in a 40mm 18K pink gold case, only 6.79mm thick. The manual-winding watch is simple but striking, with two hands on a blue dial with a brilliant sunray burst finish decorated with slim hour markers. It comes with hand-stitched blue leather strap and features the Geneva Seal.
Piaget Polo is sporty, simple yet striking, sophisticated with a 42mm 18K rose gold case that marries round and cushion shapes. The bezel is encrusted with 56 beautiful diamonds, while the watch is water resistant to 100 metres, befitting a sport watch. The automatic movement, developed in-house, is seen through the transparent sapphire crystal case back, and is powered by a 50-hour power reserve.
Dazzling Rendez-Vous Night & Day by Jaeger-LeCoultre is elegant and feminine, with sparkling diamonds circling the 36mm 18K pink gold case with diamond-set lugs. The radiant mother-of-pearl dial comes with two hands. Visible through an opening at 6 o’clock, a moon and a sun indicate day and night, powered by an automatic movement developed in-house.
Sometimes, simple and basic things can be charming and timeless, but simplicity
is never simple, because there are certain details that make it everlasting.
Simple and retro, Rado brings back the Golden Horse from 1957. The classic anchor remains, with a maroon background that swings with the motion of one’s arm, and the brand’s signature “Golden Horse”. The 35mm stainless steel case comes with a pink gold bezel in “Ceramos”, paired with a bead of rice bracelet in stainless steel. It displays date and time using an automatic movement on a pearl dial with 12 diamond markers.
Master Collection from Longines is a collection of simple timepieces with great details. The watch comes with a date display at the 3 o’clock position and features the Barley Corn Guilloche pattern on the dial, with large painted Arabic numerals. The caseback is transparent and the case is 40mm, made with 18K rose gold. It is water resistant to 30 metres.
Japanese brand Seiko presents Presage Japanese Garden, a beautiful timepiece with a soothing green dial, three hands, and a date window at the 6 o’clock position. It also features a power reserve gauge at 1-4 o’clock. The automatic movement is developed in-house, seen through the transparent caseback on a 42mm stainless steel case.
