Avant-garde watches for men

Let your imagination soar with these out-of-the-ordinary watches that are paving the way for the next revolution in watchmaking. 

  • You probably won’t find anything bigger than this watch by the brand 4N. Housed in a transparent sapphire crystal case, the amazing mechanical manual-winding movement that powers the jumping hours and minutes, composed of 514 components, is exposed in all its glory (€280,000).
  • Armin Strom's mechanical marvel is crammed with technical fireworks that require an excellent grasp of physics and the phenomenon of resonance. Equipped with two resonant regulators, visible on the dial, this Mirrored Force Resonance watch is limited to 50 pieces (CHF 67,000).
  • 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).
