Audemars Piguet Royal Oak x Carolina Bucci
Made in collaboration with the esteemed Italian jewellery designer Carolina Bucci, this new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding reference measures 34mm across and is encased entirely in black ceramic with a matching bracelet. The key point of difference here is the multi-coloured mirror effect dial that shimmers and glistens in the light, a tribute to the iconic Tapisserie design.
Roger Dubuis Black Ceramic
Another maison venturing into the realm of black ceramic is Roger Dubuis. The manufacture unveiled two new masterpieces portraying the super contemporary material in the Excalibur Double Tourbillon and the Excalibur Monobalancier. Both pieces are subtly magnificent, with each piece representing the quintessence of Roger Dubuis in their respective complexities, finishings and executions.

There are plenty of tell-tale signs that this is indeed a race-inspired timepiece, particularly with its speedometer-stylised chronograph sub-dial registers. Another winner from Bremont.
