Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime ref. 6300A 'Only Watch'

Patek Philippe’s pièce unique for the ‘Only Watch’ 2019 charity auction is its high complication Grandmaster Chime ref. 6300A, a first in a steel case. The main hours are displayed alongside the 24-hour counter and moonphase indicator on the rose gold dial, with the calendar on the reverse displayed against a black dial. The model was first released five years ago to celebrate its 175th anniversary, and the Only Watch edition is expected to fetch about up to 3 million Swiss Francs at the auction.

Audemars Piguet Millenary Frosted Gold

Audemars Piguet’s Millenary models have been admired for its elegant oblong shape. The brand introduced the frosted gold technique in the Royal Oak line, and returns in new Millenary models.

Here, the Frosted Gold Philosophique comes in white or pink gold cases in the hammered finish, with textured dials in either blue or brown to match. The time-only watch runs on the calibre 3140, a new self-winding movement with 50 hours of power reserve.

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 'Ultra Light'

Omega joins a new weight class with a new sports watch featuring an all-new material and case design. Weighing at just 55g, the grey case is created from Gamma Titanium, an alloy that is favored in the aeronautical industry for its light weight and high strength resistance.

It is also designed with a new push-in crown for a more seamless silhouette when doing sports. It is available in three colours with matching colored stitching on the fabric strap.

The watch sports a day-date complication along with split seconds for time measurement.
