These watches were distinguished by their exceptional performance, their quality, and their pure Breitling style. With its new Superocean Collection, Breitling has updated and upgraded one of its best- loved and most successful watch families. With their clean, sporty design and impeccable performance, these new Superoceans will feel at home on any wrist and in any environment.

Earth to Sky
The Girard-Perregaux Neo Bridges automatic watch embodies an approach dramatizing the architecture of a movement dating back more than 150 years. As part of the “Earth to Sky” theme, it appears again in titanium, with a distinguished look against the black DLC coating 45 mm-diameter case. Fitted with a rubber-patterned genuine alligator leather strap secured by a triple titanium folding clasp, the timepiece has no dial, but rather a ring with suspended hour-markers.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date
Drawing inspiration from the 1970 Polaris II, this limited-edition Polaris Date features a new hand-lacquered, blue double-gradient dial with sunrayed, grained and opaline finish, unique to this model. The blue rubber Clous de Paris strap, also unique to the model, is color-matched to the inner bezel, which rotates for added functionality. The new Polaris collection pays homage by continuing to carry these visual elements but has been entirely redesigned for the modern era. $8,250; www.jaeger-lecoultre.com; www.hingwaleejewelers.com.
