1 Piaget Altiplano Chronograph with diamond bezel
The expert of slim watches introduced the world’s thinnest watch at SIHH 2014, the Piaget Altiplano 900P, and this year breaks two more records with the release of the Piaget Altiplano Chronograph. The result is the incredibly sharp, and stylish Piaget Altiplano Chronograph, which comes with an elegant (black or brown) alligator leather strap. Available in pink gold or in white gold with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds. For a closer look at this year’s design, please click here.
2 Patek Philippe Calatrava 5153R-001
The Patek Philippe Calatrava 5153R-001 is perfection on the wrist. A classic dress watch, presented in a rose gold case measuring 38mm, it features hours, minutes and seconds as well as a useful date complication, all displayed on an elegant silvery opaline dial. The hand-guilloched center adds some texture to this watch and gives it character. The watch is powered by Caliber 324 S C, a mechanical self-winding movement that comes protected in a hunting-style case back so collectors can admire its beautiful finish.

3 Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar Meteorite Dial
Jaeger-LeCoultre added a mesmerizing meteorite dial to its Master Calendar, but the 2015 model retains the same layout, movement and dimensions as last year’s stunning calendar watch. This is the first meteorite dial to be used within the context of a classic dress watch and an astronomical complication. For a closer look at this year’s design, please click
4 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Two-Tone
Some would qualify Audemars Piguet’s latest Royal Oak as bold – others going as far as saying the brand’s decision to introduce a two-tone watch in its most iconic and sportiest collection was a risk. This is the first time pink gold and steel have been paired, but the initial reaction from collectors at SIHH 2015 has been overwhelmingly positive. The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Two Tone is housed in the iconic octagonal Royal Oak case measuring 41mm, and features the traditional Grand Tapisserie dial in white.

5 Vacheron Constantin Harmony Dual Time
The Harmony collection has the distinction of representing Vacheron’s anniversary and the Dual Time allows for the setting of two time zones, truly a complication that is practical (right along with the date) in modern day and not just a fun demonstration of technique. The layout is a lovely picture for the eyes, a very balanced dial with a sunken dials for the separate time zone at 4 o’clock and running seconds placed at 8 o’clock for a layered, 3-dimensional composition.
