Reservoir Kanister 316
The KANISTER collection is inspired by the RPM counter of the legendary Porsche 356 Speedster, and pays tribute to the spirit of freedom that breathed the decade of the 1950s. The pastel green minute indexes, a red area, a black dial and a white hand housed in a 316L stainless steel case with brushed finish, mounted on a stainless steel bracelet elegantly sign the breathtaking design of this model. The collection is powered by the calibre RSV-240, a proprietary patented three-complication module coupled to a manufacture movement (LJP-G100 base), combining retrograde minute, jumping hour and a 56-hours power reserve. Awarded by a Red Dot for Product Design in 2022. Delivered in a prestigious wooden box with an additional black leather strap.

Watches to add to your wrist this summer: Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42
The new Yacht-Master 42 is the ally of those who revel in freedom. Especially suited to the demands and pressures of competitive sailing, it delivers exceptional performance. This nautical watch is introduced for the first time in RLX titanium—a particularly strong but lightweight alloy—and is fitted on an Oyster bracelet. The new version stands out for its technical satin finish—a satin finish with a visible grain, a feature of Rolex watches in RLX titanium—which extends to the middle case sides, the edges of the bracelet links and the sides of the clasp cover. The chamfered top edges of the middle case lugs have a high-sheen finish, while the crown guard is polished.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface Tourbillon
Worn by Lenny Kravitz, the new ambassador for the Maison, the Reverso Tribute Duoface Tourbillon pays tribute to Jaeger-LeCoultre first wristwatch with a rectangular Tourbillon. In its new ultra-thin (9.15 mm) pink gold case, the absence of an upper bridge allows for an unobstructed view of the flying Tourbillon, which is also visible on the reverse side. Assembled by hand in the Grandes Complications workshop, the Tourbillon remains incredibly light (0.455 g) despite its 62 components. Housing the Manufacture Calibre 847, this exceptional timepiece also features a second time zone on the reverse side in a calibre only 3.9 mm thick, a true testament to the ingenuity of the watchmakers. While the front embodies the Reverso spirit to perfection, turning the case over reveals a rarely seen degree of sophistication: gold bridges decorated with guilloché at the Atelier des Métiers Rares® and a sunray-engraved cradle with a mirror-polished disc. This Jaeger-LeCoultre is one of the perfect watches to add to your wrist this summer
