Designed with a deep-blue to pitch-black gradient dial, The D-blue dial on the Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea is reminiscent of the ocean’s twilight zone, where the last trickle of light from the surface disappears into the abyss. It was released in 2014 to commemorate James Cameron’s historic solo dive down the Mariana Trench. This ultra-resistant divers’ watch that remains watertight to 3,900 metres still holds its weight as the watch to be able to reach the lowest depths of the earth.

A name associated with super-thin watches, Bulgari has gone beyond expectations to break two new records (the thinnest tourbillon watch and the thinnest automatic watch) in a single timepiece during Baselworld 2018. The Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Automatic watch runs on a paper-thin 1.95mm calibre with a mere overall thickness of 3.95mm. (Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Automatic in sandblasted titanium case.)
With athletic qualities threading throughout its brand identity, Richard Mille has pulled off an extraordinary feat in creating the lightest watch — weighing a mere 32 grams — within the realm of its sports watches. The groundbreaking RM 67-02 editions are launched in support of its brand athlete partners, where the timepieces will be put through extreme field testing on the tennis court, Formula 1 circuit and the track.

With over a century of experience in manufacturing movements, Piaget prides itself on its creativity and virtuosity in the ultra-thin horology department. The Altiplano, currently the world’s thinnest automatic watch, is emblematic of the maison’s constant pursuit of revolutionary constructions and uncompromising standards in precision and style.
