  • Instead of just designing a watch inspired by a car, Bell & Ross' creative director built a prototype concept car, the AeroGT, as the starting point for a watch collection.The design of the steel case on the Aero BR 03-92GT watch recalls the fuselage-style body of the car (£3,950).
  • Strictly for Trekkie fans, MB&F’s Horological Machine No.6, a limited edition of 10 in red gold, boasts a transparent sapphire crystal case designed to reveal the interior of this extraordinary spaceship. In the centre, a dome protects the 60-second flying tourbillon (£350,000).
  • Urwerk's UR-105 Raging Gold watch has an imposing red gold bezel engraved with a hobnail Clou de Paris motif. Reading the time is easy. The four carousels with the hour indications (three on each) align the correct numeral on the minute track at the bottom of the watch (CHF 67,000).
