Last year, Tatler was invited to an enamel workshop by Jaquet Droz, where we learnt just how difficult it is to paint a miniature masterpiece onto a watch’s dial. While Jaquet Droz’s latest Petite Heure Minute is relatively large for a wristwatch, measuring in at 43 mm, this timepiece still doesn’t allow much room for error, which is why its lifelike depiction of a tiger is so incredible. Available in two limited series of 28 pieces: choose between a white tiger with blue eyes or a Bengal tiger with green eyes.

Named after the picturesque Swiss village where Jehan-Jacques Blancpain set up his workshop in 1735, Blancpain’s iconic Villeret Ultraplate gets a facelift for 2020. Two steel and two red gold 38 mm models have been welcomed into the collection, all of which are fitted with Blancpain’s ultra-slim automatic Calibre 1150, which offers a power reserve of 100 hours.

Vacheron Constantin's “Les Collectionneurs” programme is an initiative to buy back vintage models, restore them to full functionality and offer them to collectors. Our favourite? A beautiful pink gold chronograph, circa 1942, is currently on offer. This 36 mm piece boasts an inclined bezel and two rectangular-shaped push buttons at 2 and 4 o’clock. A champagne-coloured dial complete with Roman numerals and pink gold indexes ensures that this wristwatch will never fall out of style.

Earlier this year, Omega added two new dials to its iconic Seamaster Aqua Terra collection: one blue and one green. Now, the watchmaker has added a more luxurious and more feminine edition to its stylish line. Made using Sedna gold, which is an 18-karat, reddish-coloured alloy that’s exclusive to Omega, the Seamaster Aqua Terra Jewellery comes with a silvery guilloché wave-patterned dial and a diamond-set bezel. Marquise-cut ruby hour markers beautifully complement diamond-polished hour and minute hands, which are filled with white Super-LumiNova. Wear with a glossy red leather strap.
