And now for something completely different: Founded by former industrial designer Armand Billard in 2015, Sartory Billard builds wildly beautiful, semi-customizable watches in France. The brand’s latest, the SB06-24, stemmed from a design challenge from the Cronotempvs Watch Club for a flying tourbillon—which ultimately resulted in the development of a brand-new, in-house movement. Housed in a 41mm case available in platinum, gold, tantalum, titanium, or stainless steel, it features a mesmerizing dial inscribed in a 12-hour format—look closely and you’ll notice that the dual-sided hour hand features a sun (for the daytime hours) at one end, and a moon (for the nighttime hours) at the other. Geared to make a single revolution in 24 hours, this unique display is complemented by the addition of a flying tourbillon above 6 o’clock.

Powered by the 5.65mm-thick Calibre 2160, this automatic luxury sports watch will be familiar to devotees of the brand, though not in its current form: Available for the first time in white gold with a matching bracelet and a gleaming blue dial, its most eye-catching feature is the addition of 60 baguette-cut diamonds on the bezel and hour markers. Measuring 42.5mm wide by just over 10mm tall, its sporty profile is perfectly capable of withstanding everyday wear—though with 50m of water resistance, you may want to switch it up before you swan dive into the pool. (The included rubber strap, however, does make it a perfect option for hotter, sweatier days.)
