Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

New this year is a smaller, 34mm version of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. It’s a perfect fit for a smaller wrist, and adorned with a diamond-set bezel. Royal Oak Self-winding 34mm, $23,100, and Royal Oak Self-winding Chronograph 38mm, $59,000; audemarspiguet.com

Rolex Oyster Perpetual

With these additions to the Rolex Oyster Perpetual collection, the company draws on its reputation for creating the world’s first waterproof watch, the original Oyster, in 1926. The clean black dials set on sleek Oystersteel bracelets come in five sizes. Oyster Perpetual 41mm, $5,900, and Oyster Perpetual 38mm, $5,100; rolex.com

Girard-Perregaux 1966 Infinity Edition

Onyx is the new black, as showcased in the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Infinity Edition. In fact, executing the sleek Onyx design required a series of 15 detailed processes performed over many months. The result is limited to 188 pieces each in both the 30mm ($11,600) and 44mm ($9,800) sizes. watchesofswitzerland.com

Ulysse Nardin Dual Time

The Ulysse Nardin Dual Time is synonymous with adventure. The men’s Executive Dual Time 42mm ($8,300) released earlier this year offers a reworked version of the 1994 original. The Lady Diver 39mm ($10,800) with diamond bezel and hour markers has a touch of finery not usually found in sport watches. ulysse-nardin.com

Chopard Alpine Eagle

The Chopard Alpine Eagle collection takes its design references from nature: the eagle-feather-shaped counterweight on the second hand; carefully sculpted bracelet links recalling a mountain habitat. While the men’s Alpine Eagle XL Chrono 44mm ($19,200) can be worn every day, the diamond-encrusted ladies Alpine Eagle Frozen 36mm (price upon request) feels a touch more extraordinary. chopard.com

Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time

Each detail of a Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time watch pays tribute to traditional aviator’s timepieces. The white luminous coating on the sculpted rose gold numerals stand out beautifully on the brown dials for best legibility in the air, and the vintage calfskin straps are reminiscent of aviation harnesses. 42mm, $53,818, and 37.5mm, $48,495; patek.com

Vacheron Constantin Traditionelle

The Vacheron Constantin Traditionelle collection combines exquisite design with technical sophistication. The men’s Tourbillon Chronograph combines a monopusher chrono with a tourbillon, while the ladies Tourbillon Jewelry is the first self-winding tourbillon from the brand. Each is housed in a pink-gold case. Prices upon request; vacheron-constantin.com

Zenith Defy

Zenith Defy watches make a statement with their stunning contrast of a white ceramic bezel atop a black ceramic case and matching rubber strap. The iconic tonneau-shaped case and open dial are the icing on the cake. Defy 21 44mm, $13,600, and Defy Classic 41mm, $8,200; zenith-watches.com

Omega Trésor

Originally launched in 1949, the slim Omega Trésor continues to impress today. While the men’s version is a Co-Axial Master Chronometer 40mm ($6,500), the ladies DeVille Trésor 36mm ($4,500) comes complete with diamonds and a remarkably slim 8.85mm case height. omegawatches.com
