1. Into the deep
Planning a diving trip to somewhere like the Maldives? Conquer greater depths with the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller in yellow Rolesor, which combines Oystersteel and yellow gold. Robust and reliable, the watch is waterproof to a depth of 1,220m. To help divers safely and accurately monitor their dive and decompression times, the unidirectional rotatable bezel is fitted with a 60-minute graduated Cerachrom insert.
2. The great outdoors
For adventure travel
With a rugged khaki green dial and matching rubber strap, the Patek Philippe 5168G Aquanaut already looks like the ideal watch to wear while traversing a destination like Seattle, where an adventure is never too far away. With a 42.2mm rounded octagonal case in white gold, the watch is powered by a self-winding Calibre 324 S C movement that is visible through the sapphire-crystal case back.
3. Defying gravity
Good weather and lot of open space means that Dubai is a skydiver’s paradise, and the simple functionality of Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Bi-Compass makes it the perfect companion. Inspired by the analog instruments of aircraft cockpits, it resembles a sleek, yet quirky, vintage radio compass. The matte black ceramic case is scratch resistant and the watch dial is treated with matte black anti-glare to reduce reflections.
4. Powder run
Before hitting the slopes of the idyllic ski resorts surrounding Zurich, make sure the timepiece on your wrist can handle the demands. The IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph is powered by the in-house manufactured 89361 Calibre and features a flyback chronograph function that’s great for timing ski runs. Made in stainless steel with a black rubber strap and with a water resistance of 6 bar, it has no problem with the snow and still looks sleek enough for après-ski parties.
5. Smart city
Like the high-tech city-state of Singapore, the slender Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Skeleton achieves form and function with an impressive, ultra-thin 5.5mm width that houses the high-performing, manual-winding BVL 128SK Finissimo Calibre. The watch is made in resilient matte black ceramic, which complements the slim skeletonised dial, showing off the beauty of its technical features.
6. Concrete jungle
To get the most out of a vibrant fast-paced city like Bangkok, slip on a versatile watch that’s practical in casual settings and still elegant enough for formal ones. Enter Vacheron Constantin’s Overseas Tourbillon in stainless steel. It is slim enough to sit comfortably under a shirt cuff, while the mesmerising tourbillon at the bottom of the uncluttered blue dial is the sophisticated touch that stands out when your sleeves are rolled up. It comes with three easily interchangeable straps.
