MB&F Legacy Machine No. 1 Silberstein

\nWhen two watchmaking mavericks collide, the results are always rather spectacular. Case in point, the new MB&F Legacy Machine courtesy of design supremo Alain Silberstein. It's a serious watch, with a dash of playfulness, whimsy and humour.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Tribute Reverso Duo

\nThe legendary Reverso wristwatch turns 85 this year, and the Tribute line is – as you'd expect – a celebration of that. As such, the Reverso Duo is an elegant interpretation of the old classic, complete with two dials (one blue, one grey with day/night indicator) and self-winding 854A/2 movement.

Urwerk EMC TimeHunter Ceramic

\nThe only timepiece from Urwerk to have a traditional time indicator – with hour and minute hands – the EMC comes with an Electro Mechanical Control unit that lets you measure how accurate the watch really is. This, the new version, can also measure balance amplitude (and comes in green).
