A look at latest gadgets in the market for the discerning consumer

Cosmograph Daytona

Launched in 1963, the Cosmograph Daytona is closely linked to speed and automobile sport. Its chronograph movement allows short periods of elapsed time to be measured to within 1⁄8th of a second and the tachymetric scale on the bezel enables the instant reading of speed over a given distance. With its new, exclusive monobloc black Cerachrom bezel developed by Rolex - made of an advanced ceramic virtually impervious to scratches, corrosion-resistant and non-fading - this new version of the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona exhibits state-of-the-art technology and pays homage to its legendary heritage.

The new model's sophisticated aesthetics are underscored by the noble materials used in its construction: the Oyster case in 18ct Everose gold, an alloy created by Rolex; the chocolate brown or ivory coloured dial with gold hour markers and the comfortable strap in black alligator leather with an 18ct Everose gold folding clasp and safety catch.

Jaquet Droz Tourbillon

Jaquet Droz presents two exclusive timepieces associating one of its most emblematic models - the Grande Seconde - with the tourbillon complication, a masterpiece of precision watch making.

Freeing the mechanical watch from the effects of gravity, the tourbillon confers outstanding reliability. Here it comes enclosed in a white-gold case with a Côtes de Genève dial or a red-gold case with a Grand Feu enamelled dial. Once again, Jaquet Droz pushes back the limits of the watchmaker's art by unveiling a tourbillon carriage crafted from sapphire crystal, an exceptional material, also used for the figure-8 shaped ring applied to the dial.

While sapphire crystal is an innovation, Grand Feu enamelling draws on venerable tradition. After reviewing all of the creative options offered by the Grande Seconde, Jaquet Droz master dial-makers decided to place the tourbillon at the very heart of the seconds sub dial, off-centered at twelve o'clock.

RJ-Romain Jerome

RJ-Romain Jerome has created the MoonFighter pen, a writing instrument that is mid-way between Back to the Future and Space Invaders, and which reinterprets space mythology and a taste for fun. This unique pen with its impeccably sleek profile and smooth curves is entirely made in Switzerland, although it looks as if it has just emerged from a NASA lab or from the desk of Major Boothroyd, the iconoclastic inventor of the James Bond accessories.

Moon dust, embodying all human fantasies of exploring the sky, is encapsulated in the cockpit bubble, and the resulting eloquent invitation to escape earthbound reality is interpreted in three different versions: heavy metal, black metal and vintage, each adorned with 48 hand-applied rivets.
