As Watches & Wonders continues in Geneva, we bring you more of the latest novelties and highlights from the world’s luxury watchmakers.





Karl Friedrich & Caroline Scheufele with Julia Roberts


Chopard will become the first luxury Maison to use recycled steel for its watches after an announcement was made yesterday at Watches & Wonders in Geneva. By the end of 2023, Chopard will use Lucent Steel™ for the production of all its steel watches – including bracelets and cases. Currently, Lucent Steel™ is made with a recycling rate of at least 80% and the brand’s ambition is to reach at least 90% recycled steel in its Lucent Steel™ by 2025. This commitment will allow Chopard to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of its steel.

The announcement was made at Watches & Wonders with a press conference hosted by Co-Presidents Caroline and Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, as well as Chopard Ambassador Julia Roberts. This significant move is the latest step in the Maison’s quest for sustainability. See more from Watches & Wonders at


L’Heure du Diamant

Chopard’s L’Heure du Diamant collection is a sparkling showcase for the brand’s watch and jewellery skills. This year the iconic watch is reinvented with an oval-shaped case fashioned from ethical 18-carat white or rose gold, graced with a textured mother-of-pearl dial and rimmed with marquise-cut diamonds. This creation features the emblematic tree bark-textured gold bracelet sculpted using a proprietary technique and beats to the rhythm of the Chopard 09.01-C self-winding movement. It’s truly beautiful!






Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new Reverso One Precious Colours collection will add vibrancy to your wrist with a colourful, eye-catching design. Offered in two eye-catching shades, the Reverso One Precious Colours features a richly decorated case that pays direct tribute to Art Deco style.



With the front dial facing outwards, the Reverso One Precious Colours has a rich and elegant presence, its white mother-of-pearl dial contrasting with the vivid colours of its enamelled frame and the sparkle of the diamond-set gadroons and lugs. Turn the swivelling case over and the Reverso One Precious Colours becomes a piece of High Jewellery. Presented in shades of blue with black on a pink gold background, or in different tones of green on a white gold background, the pattern is executed in miniature-painted grand feu enamel with diamond-set accents, creating an optical illusion of depth and movement.


Roger Dubuis



Roger Dubuis has unveiled the new MonovortexTM Split-Seconds Chronograph, once again pushing the boundaries of innovation, craftsmanship and performance as well as the brand’s commitment to its uncompromising approach known as Hyper Horology. This ground-breaking creation not only controls the forces of gravity, but also highlights the emphatic ingenuity of Roger Dubuis by reinventing both the tourbillon and the oscillating mass, each associated with one of the most complex traditional fine watchmaking complications: the Split-Seconds Chronograph.


Patek Philippe

Patek Philippe revealed an impressive 17 new novelties at this year’s Watches & Wonders. Each of the timepieces combines innovative technical and aesthetic features, enriching its already vast range of collections.



The new designs range from a Calatrava with an original 24-hour display and a Travel Time function for the display of a second time zone, to a new high jewellery version of the Grandmaster Chime, and the first Annual Calendar to enter the ladies’ Aquanaut Luce collection.
