The Nyon-based manufactory has presented the largest and most varied collection of new products - from the innovative micro-rotor, which first appeared on the watch face, to integrated bracelets made of ceramic and sapphire crystal in a bright orange hue.
It is no coincidence that the general director of the brand, Ricardo Guadalupe, began his presentation with the Research & Development department. The scratch-free Magic Gold is smelted here - for the first time the Big Bang MP 11 watch is made from it. Another important material for Hublot is ceramics, which, through the efforts of engineers, takes on incredibly bright colors. This year the brand is introducing navy blue, gray and white ceramic on cases and integrated bracelets. In addition, the Classic Fusion Orlinski watch is fully dressed in bright blue ceramic, including the beveled dial. And the Spirit of Big Bang keg appeared for the first time in beige ceramic.
The most spectacular novelty is the Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic skeleton made of orange sapphire crystal (chrome and titanium are added to it during the manufacturing process). The transparent case houses the new caliber MHUB6035 with a three-day power reserve and a micro-rotor, for the first time on the dial side. It balances the tourbillon at 6 o'clock. The spectacular orange series is limited to 50 pieces.

Jean-Christophe Babin greeted the audience from his office at Bvlgari's Rome headquarters. Antoine Pen took the floor after he spoke in detail about the company's support for the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine against Covid-19. The head of the watch department got in touch with him while at the manufactory in Neuchâtel.
The jewelry and watch house addressed the ladies with the new Serpenti Spiga on a flexible gold bracelet in three turns - this time the tubogas technique gave way to a quilted pattern “matlasse”, in which polished elements are combined with inlaid diamonds. The Diva's Dream line has been replenished with three models featuring a peacock: Divas' Dream Peacock Dischi (60 pieces) with an appliqué of peacock feathers and diamonds instead of hands, Divas' Dream Peacock Diamonds with a portrait of a peacock in precious mosaic technique and a complex jewelry skeleton with a Divas tourbillon ' Dream Peacock Tourbillon Lumière (10 copies). In the men's line Octo, the iconic ultra-thin automatic Finissimo automatic chronograph is presented in a steel version, as evidenced by the letter S in the name: Octo Finissimo S Chronograph GMT.

Julien Tornard, the head of the Le Locle-based manufactory, unveiled the main novelty of 2021 - the Chronomaster Sport, which heralded another era of sporting elegance from Zenith.
The steel chronograph on a metal bracelet, designed by Gay Freres, combines the features of various historical Zenith models with the best characteristics of the El Primero caliber, created more than half a century ago. The updated El Primero 3600 movement counts tenths of a second and has a 60-hour power reserve.
In addition, the manufactory announced the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Silver, an aviator watch made entirely of 925 sterling silver (250 pieces), and the Defy 21 Urban Jungle, the highest-frequency chronograph in the current green range. This color is used not only for the ceramic case and bezel, but also for the star-shaped rotor and platinum parts of the movement. Tornar promised that very soon it will become known about another new Zenith Defy.
