SINGAPORE (Nov 12): Audemars Piguet has partnered with Italian jewellery designer Carolina Bucci again to design a new Royal Oak that is bold and rebellious, made for women who are spontaneous and unapologetic.

A mirrored dial replaces the trademark “Tapisserie” Royal Oak dial. Calling it “a fresh take on an icon made in the image of a contemporary woman”, Bucci explains the concept behind this feature: “The mirror is always interacting with its environment, ever-changing according to what clothes you’re wearing, the décor of the room, the lighting, the time of day, the weather.”

This 37mm watch also features, for the first time, a “diamond dust” finish in yellow gold — the designer’s favourite version of this precious metal.

The Frosted Gold case and bracelet have been reworked from Bucci’s original 2016 Frosted Gold design that celebrated 40 years of Royal Oak for women.

With a limited edition of 300 pieces, the timepiece comes in a mirrored box bearing a Frosted Gold AP insignia. This mirrored box is also designed by Bucci, who believes in pulling out luxury watch packaging from the back of the closet to put it on display.

Longer warranty
Every Omega timepiece you purchase from now carries a five-year warranty. This decision follows the significant strides Omega has made over the past years, a milestone being the launch of the Master Chronometer certification, which signifies a new industry benchmark for precision, performance and magnetic resistance. The longer warranty is also a testament to the brand’s ability to provide the highest level of service with the opening of its industrial factory in Bienne, Switzerland a year ago. Apart from assembling functions, the site also provides new testing and quality-control facilities. 

Red hot
The iconic clear-glass, rectangular bottle of Chanel No 5 is now in fiery red. It is the favourite colour of Mademoiselle Chanel, who once declared it “the colour of life, the colour of blood”. The No 5 L’Eau de Toilette and No 5 Eau de Parfum (100ml) are now housed in the mass-dyed red statement-bottle by Baccarat.

Sound investment
When you have all the plans for a new home laid out, don’t forget to include a solid sound system too. Bang & Olufsen introduces the Bronze Collection, a multiroom speaker system. This new collection brings together Bang & Olufsen’s powerful combination of Beoplay A9 floor speaker, the Beoplay M5, Beosound 1 and Beosound 2 with 360-degree sound as well as the all-new Beosound Edge speaker, designed by Michael Anastassiades for Bang & Olufsen. Now, imagine yourself immersed in the soundscape of your favourite album with this system.

Super moist
Clarins’ Super Moisture Gel for men is a luxurious blend that draws moisture to the skin and seals it in. Ideal for combination and oily skin, it also helps protect against razor burn.

Warm and snug
Treat yourself to a blouson in midnight blue from Giorgio Armani. Made with 97% virgin wool and 3% elastane, this turtleneck outerwear is fully lined with a zipper.
