TAG Heuer India Racing

The TAG Heuer Carrera Tachymeter Chronograph has been chosen for this special edition. This 200 pieces numbered limited edition has been adorned with the logo of ‘Mastering Speed for 150 Years’ with striking India colors – Saffron and Green. The presence of the car shaped logo on the dial adds to the thrill of TAG Heuer fans as well as car racing enthusiasts. The ‘Mastering Speed for 150 Years’ logo has been placed on the dial at 9 ’o clock as well as on the Sapphire Crystal case back. The chronograph hand along with the thread stitching on the leather strap is in India saffron colors, which provides a fresh, enthusiastic appeal and captures the soul of TAG Heuer, which is, innovation, prestige, performance and precision.

The bezel is an exquisite polished gold plated (18K 2N) & ceramic with 84 Wesselton diamonds and the bracelet plated in shimmering gold. The white diamond dial, with 11 to Wesselton diamonds and luminescent markers on polished gold plated minute and hour hands, add an extra edge to this one of a kind timepiece apt for her special day.

Victorinox’s Vintage

August 6, 2011

Victorinox’s Infantry Vintage Mechanical’s tone-on-tone colour block combination is an industry first.

The new Infantry Vintage Mechanical from Victorinox is trimmer in case size from its mechanical predecessors, in keeping with contemporary watch aesthetics. The look is simpler but refined: the tone-on-tone colour block combinations set it apart. The dial presentation has three bold hands and three circles of indicators – 24-hour military markers in the middle, oversized Arabic hours around them, and a 60-minute/second track with 5-second intervals at the dial periphery.

Every surface is satin-finished, with cut and polished angles subtly bringing a shimmering light to the outline. Generous volumes of luminescence – on the minute, hour hands and markers, greatly increase the watch’s night legibility. Anti-glare treatment on the sapphire crystal makes it equally easy to read in direct sunlight.

The standout case coating in an exclusive Black Ice PVD coating is a pollution-free and non-allergenic technology issued from the aeronautic industry. The warm and lustrous depth of the colour is underlined by its soft contrast with a brown dial and matching leather strap. The tone-on-tone color block combination available in black, beige, brown and indigo blue is an industry first.

The 3-hand, stainless steel case, leather strap is Rs. 50,000 approx while 3-hand, stainless steel case with Black Ice PVD treatment, leather strap is Rs. 55,000 approx.

TAG’s Monsoon Offer

July 5, 2011

Timing it with the monsoon TAG Heuer launches water resistant watches and this year they have three watches to offer. Practical yet sophisticated, these exquisite timepieces are a must have this monsoon season!

Carrera Lady Diamond

Bearing resemblance to its masculine equivalent yet set apart by its feminine charms: 13 diamonds on the index, steel bracelet and mother-of-pearl dial. Drawing inspiration from the classic style of Carrera watches, the TAG Heuer Carrera Lady Diamond contains a high precision movement. It is chic and feminine, and comes in dial colour options in white or pink mother of pearl, or black, enhanced by 13 diamonds or elegant baton markers. Simplicity and efficiency are the governing style principles, revisited with the TAG Heuer woman’s superlative elegance and grace. Price: Rs. 1,34,000

Grand CARRERA Calibre 36RS Caliper Chronograph

Winner of the Grand Prix d’Horlorgerie de Geneve, Favourite Sports Watch, the TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA Calibre 36RS Caliper Concept Chronograph is an exceptional timepiece animated by a column-wheel movement based on the famous «El Primero». This timepiece of superlative design is remarkable for being the first Swiss-made mechanical watch capable of measuring and displaying 1/10th second thanks to the rotating scale. The watch is driven by a C.O.S.C.- certified automatic movement that beats at an impressive 36,000 vibrations per hour. This high frequency allows the central seconds hand to advance at 1/10th second intervals – a technological achievement of the highest order. It is made possible by a special information display developed by TAG Heuer: the Caliper Rotating Scale that magnifies the second by ten times, controlled by a stunning red-edged crown at 10.00. Price: Rs. 4,26,000

Aquaracer Calibre S 1/100th Chronograph

TAG Heuer developed and patented the Calibre S movement, accurate to 1/100th of a second. It’s what makes this watch revolutionary. For maximum readability, watch and chronograph times are displayed by the hour and minute hands. The semi circular Calibre S counters show 1/10th and 1/100th of a second in chronograph mode, or the date in hour mode. The counter at 4:30 indicates 1/100th-of-a-second and the counter at 7:30shows 1/10th-of-a-second. In hour mode, the perpetual retrograde date is displayed by the hands of these two counters- until December 31, 2099. Like all Aquaracer editions, the Calibre S 1/100th carries the essential features of the line. Price: Rs. 1,16,000.

Dior VIII 33mm auto

Watch our for numeral VIII in this Dior watch

Dior VIII 33mm Automatic (Bezel set with diamonds) evokes the Haute Couture heritage of the House of Dior based on timeless elegance.  The watch pays tribute to the couturier. Its name, consisting of eight characters, is the lucky number of Dior’s founder. The date of his couture house’s creation was also the 8th of October 1946. The name of his first collection was baptised “en hult”. Dior’s jewellery and timepiece collection is showcased at the Avenue Montaigne and 8 Place VenDome in the VIIIth Arrondissement of Paris. Moreover, 8 is the only number that appears in Roman numerals at 8 ‘o’ clock on these ultra-feminine and classic-shaped wristwatches.

Monsieur Dior’s taste for architecture, graphic lines, Paris and its symbol the Eiffel Tower is reflected in the collection. The ceramic work on the Dior VIII has enabled the creation of a structured pattern, a bracelet made from an arrangement of pyramids, like the Lady Dior bag and its “Cannage” pattern obtained by the work on the leather. Price: Rs. 438,000

Victoria, Victoria

June 29, 2011

Victorinox’s Victoria is an all-day wear watch and is accessibly priced

Swiss watchmaker Victorinox has unveiled its non diamond versions of Victoria at much more affordable price.  Easy on your pocket this feminine and serene, the new Victoria — named after the mother of Victorinox founder, Mr. Karl Elsener – is effortlessly simple and straightforward. The seamless integration of the bracelet makes it fluid as it smoothly follows every movement of the wrist. Accessibly priced, rich to the touch and the eye, the 28mm watch is a perfect all-day wear.

The natural dial colours — eggshell beige, charcoal grey or a warm shade of brown — were chosen to play down contrasts with the shimmering steel, which is finely brushed and mirror polished. The muted palette heightens the watch’s sophistication.

The bracelet design plays a key role here: feeling weightless and extremely slender, its linking system is hidden from view. The links are uniquely hinged together, and the spherical middle part of the case, which meets the flat, rimless part of the bracelet, creates a subtle half-moon shape.

Additionally, there is the play of textures and patterns on the dial. Off-centred sunrays starting at 12 o’clock draw attention to the famous logo of Victorinox Swiss Army. On most models the hour markers are luminescent dots set into rounded and polished cabochons. The overall effect is feminine, timeless and elegantly understated. Price Rs 35,000 apprx.
