The ROLEX GMT-MASTER II is evolving in 2024. For the first time ever, this classic unisex piece is presented with the Cerachrom bezel insert in grey and black ceramic, echoing emotions that resonate through the eras – from the model’s inception in 1955 to its modern iternation.

While known for authoring the flawless construction of some of the world’s leading timepieces, BVLGARI’s roots actually date back to 1880s silver and gold. In fact, BVLGARI’s founding father Sotiros Bvlgari cut his teeth as the village goldsmith-silversmith across Epirus, fashioning belts, earrings, sword cases and silver buttons before creating what would become an iconic luxury brand.

That historical expertise is on full display with the latest Serpenti Tubogas, a single-spiral watch in 18 kt yellow gold, stainless steel, and silver opaline dial.

Along with merging two of the most iconic emblems of BVLGARI’s design, the Serpenti Tubogas is embellished with diamonds coils, portraying a sinuosity of the snake with the contemporary soul of tubogas, the twisting, interlocking chain-making style. Crafted with a flexible and tubular litheness, the timepiece evokes both the seductive power of the serpent and the fluid shape of its wrapping body, fusing irresistible glamor with distinctive jewelry design.

At the launch in 1986, TAG Heuer’s Formula 1 collection had everything going for it. Colorful, inexpensive quartz watches that were made in Switzerland were taking the world by storm; under the new ownership by TAG, the company had abundant resources to
