2/4 Backes & Strauss

Backes & Strauss has collaborated with London-based bespoke watch specialist Splendore Unique to reimagine the iconic oval-shaped Regent Backes & Strauss timepieces. Arabic-Hindi numerals have been applied using a décalque technique, which requires artisans to hand-paint them by tracing. Choose from five colours: British Racing Green, Backes Blue, Red, Burgundy or Black. Well, if you can get your hands on one. Each colour is limited to just 10 pieces.

3/4 Patek Philippe

Congratulations to Patek Philippe, which announced the opening of its new ten-storey manufacturing facility this summer. To celebrate, Patek has launched a limited-edition stainless-steel Calatrava, referencing the symbol of the 12th-century Calatrava Knights of Spain and Portugal, which retails for US$28,351. The commemorative 40 mm timepiece is made from stainless steel (not unlike the new manufacture) and comes with a beautiful blue dial that features a carbon-style texture. Only 1,000 pieces will be made, so get yours—quick.

4/4 MB&F

When MB&F’s Maximilian Büsser and L’Epée 1839’s Arnaud Nicolas announced they were joining forces, nobody could have anticipated the resulting timepiece: Destination Moon. This rocket-shaped artwork doubles as a clock, and comes with a fun spaceman made from silver, which magnetically attaches to the spaceship’s boarding ladder. Available in four limited editions of 50 pieces each: choose from black-, green-, blue- or silver-coloured engines. To infinity, and beyond.
