Clearly, the brand is celebrating in style with a brand new addition to the family, the Black Bay Pro.

IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 TOP GUN Ceratanium

With its streamlined aesthetic, and in-house caliber 69385, the 41mm chronograph is a hit with aviators, both aspirational and actual. Now the pilot is stronger than ever, thanks to the Ceratanium case. This high tech material combines ceramic and titanium and offers the best of both worlds. Lightweight and scratchproof, this TOP GUN is ready for action.


Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Perpetual Calendar

Here to challenge the notion that a sports watch has to be limited to rough and tumble is Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Polaris Perpetual Calendar, a polished take on the genre. The current iteration of the Polaris, with its brushed flanks and distinctive dual crowns, debuted in 2018. This year it comes into its own thanks to a luxurious pink gold case, a sporty rubber strap and a deep blue dial packed with a full perpetual calendar. It’s one of the most stunning luxury sports watches we’ve seen this season.
