From Hermes‘ Arceau L’Heure de la Lune to Bvlgari‘s Octo Finissimo Skeleton, there’s one commonality that these must-have arm candies possess: They’re showstoppers.

Here, we show you how you can wear four of the most immaculate and intricate novelty watches out.


1. Hermes’ Arceau L’Heure de la Lune

Featuring a meteorite dial, mechanical self-winding movement and white gold case, the Hermes Arceau L’Heure de la Lune is mysteriously elegant. Only 100 are available. Price upon request.

2. Girard-Perregaux Cosmos

Inspired by the universe, the key features on the Girard-Perregaux Cosmos are the laser-engraved Earth and constellation functions on its metallised sapphire dial at 3 and 9 o’clock respectively. These complications rotate as time passes. $486,600.

3. Bvlgari’s Octo Finissimo Skeleton

Apart from its stunning exposed winding gears and its astonishing 5.5mm thickness, what we love about Bvlgari’s Octo Finissimo Skeleton is its black ceramic case. It is sandblasted for a matte effect. Price upon request.

Wear them with:


4. Ulysse Nardin’s Classico Manara

Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin collaborated with Italian comic book artist Milo Manara to create a collection of 10 timepieces that narrates a dark, erotic love story between a human and a siren. The dials are micropainted and are approximately 10 times smaller than Manara’s original watercolour paintings. The cases come in stainless steel and 5N rose gold. From $26,900 each.
