When it comes to showcasing your individual expression, nothing quite impresses like a bold captivating timepiece
Keeping accurate time is an intrinsic value of a watch but it can also act as an engaging conversation starter and a stunning accessory. If anything, else, they provide the opportunity for one to stand out from a crowd, whilst also showcasing one’s distinctive personality. For those looking to add some avant-garde watches to their watch collection, here are the watches that will spark a conversation.
Arnold & Son Globetrotter
The Arnold & Son Globetrotter is an assured conversation starter due to its bold, eye-catching design. The watchmaker has a penchant of taking classic complications and elevating them into stylish new territory and it shows with this timepiece. The Arnold & Son Globetrotter stands as a reinterpretation of a world time complication. Arriving in a 45mm stainless steel case, it features an intricately designed rotating dome at its centre. Kept in place with a bridge that hangs over the dial, the feature is housed immaculately within a crystal dome. The timepiece features a three-position crown system with red hour and minutes hands placed under the hemisphere for improved legibility.
Bell & Ross Cyber Skull
Bell & Ross BR 01 Cyber Skull is a new addition in the series of SKULL Watches by Bell & Ross which is designed to pay tribute to the courageous military personnel like paratroopers who emerged from the night wearing a badge on their jumpsuit that bore a skull and these words: Death from Above. It features a polygonal skull set within the signature 45mm BR case, which is rendered in hi-tech matt black ceramic. The impressive new aesthetic design of the BR 01 Cyber Skull hides an automaton movement, a movement that activates the jaw which opens and appears to snigger when the spring is wound. The BR 01 Cyber Skull invite all possibilities, whether a collector or a newcomer, Jedi Knight or Sith Lord, everyone can have their own adventure.
Ulysse Nardin Diver X Skeleton
A sporty appeal, while taking a radical step towards transparency Ulysse Nardin Diver X Skeleton is an explosive fusion between the sporty design of a Diver and technical prowess of the Executive Skeleton. It is a match that was written in the stars. The case, microbeaded on the sides with satin polished lugs, are coated in blue PVD. Orange details add vibrant pops of colour and emphasize the model’s sports origins. The hour markers of Diver X Skeleton have to be secretly connected to the dial, so they appear to be floating. To achieve the sensation of depth, overlaid layers are used to emphasize the tiered construction of the central “X”. Different levels of finish were also employed to cause a play of light, which was amplified by the transparency of the skeleton movement.
Swiss Watch is a proud retailer for Arnold & Son, Bell & Ross and Ulysse Nardin.
