ARNOLD & SON The newest character in A&S' royal lineage masterfully merges three superior complications. Using the watchmaker's signature A&S8305 calibre mechanical self-winding system, the Royal Collection TEC1 model offers minutes, hours, a high-frequency tourbillion and chronograph functions, and oscillates at the weight of 22-carat red gold. Limited to a 125-time-piece production, the striking black guilloché dial is encased with 45mm cambered sapphire joined by a hand-stitched alligator leather strap. Price upon request at

The digital sphere is getting stylishly smart. For the first time in the fine watch realm, centuries-old Swiss beauty meets millennial intelligence, courtesy Montblanc’s TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap watch. The luxury watchmaker’s 2015 foray into wearable technology market touts an interchangeable strap, activity tracker (calculates steps taken, distance traveled and calories burned), smart notifications (email, text and social media notifications), Find-Me function (range: 30 meters), among other of-the-moment bells and whistles, including a camera and music player. With the ability to sync to Android and iOS smartphones via Bluetooth Low Energy, the TimeWalker’s functionality places it at the forefront in the running to replace your oscillating namesake. As an added bonus, the collection’s versatile e-Strap complements all three TimeWalker watches: a chronograph, UTC and three-hand model. And fashioned of Montblanc’s signature, water-, heat- and fire-resistant Extreme Leather, the e-Strap is guaranteed to last long beyond the next iOS upgrade.
