Confirming the timepiece’s unique status are the words “World Premiere” engraved on the caseback, along with the limited edition number. The sapphire crystal on the caseback allows an unobstructed view of the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8615 at the heart of the Seamaster Planet Ocean Orange Ceramic. This exclusive OMEGA Co-Axial mechanical movement is fitted with a Si14 silicon balance spring.
Adding to the watch’s striking appearance are the 850-grade platinum Liquidmetal® numerals, division lines, inner ring and triangle on the bezel.
Beneath the domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, the sand-blasted 950-grade platinum dial complements the orange ceramic bezel ring and the dazzling platinum case. “Pt950” is engraved above the centre hole, identifying the material of the intriguing dial.
Along with the facetted 18K white gold indexes and central hour - minute - seconds hands, there are the 6 – 9 - 12 numerals, GMT applique and the central GMT hand that rotates once every 24 hours in orange aluminium. This useful complication can be used with the rotating bezel to help you keep track of the time in a second and third time zone.
The watch features an integrated orange leather strap with platinum stitching and a 950-grade platinum foldover clasp. An orange rubber strap is also delivered with it along with a special tool to change it.
The OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean Orange Ceramic wristwatch is water resistant to 60 bar (600 metres / 2000 feet).
This remarkable timepiece is delivered in a special wooden presentation box, with a full four-year warranty.

“Our new Flagship Boutique, now the second in Asia, takes IWC’s watchmaking heritage to a new level,” explained IWC CEO Georges Kern. “We are proud to celebrate this occasion with our distinguished guests and to honor the im- portance of the Chinese market with an exclu-
Parkview Green, a new mall in the heart of Beijing’s central business district, is setting new standards in both form and function with the use of innovative environmental tech- nologies, enabling, among other achievements, the establishment of a microclimate beyond the influence of Beijing’s extreme seasonal cli- mates. IWC invited 200 guests to join them at Parkview Green for the boutique’s grand
opening event. For the inauguration, guests gathered on the bridge in front of the fully covered Flag- ship Boutique to learn more about IWC’s mile-stones of innovation, an exhibition featuring ten watches from the years 1874 to 2000.
Sustainable Architecture Meets Innovative Design
The architecture of IWC’s third Flagship Boutique is just as exceptional as its surroundings. The facade of the approximately 300 square-meter, bi-level glass cube is an eye-catcher in its own right. A brainchild of in-house designers and architects, the signature interior reflects
the luxurious ambience of IWC’s collection. Fitted out with sumptuous dark woods and exquisite materials, the Flagship Boutique creates an elegant atmosphere that invites customers to explore the six fascinating watch families along with boutique-exclusive editions, and the IWC
Collection, only available in Flagship Boutiques, and made up of innovative, hand-picked items and accessories as exquisite and outstanding as the watches themselves. (click on photo to enlarge)
A New Star Is Born
In addition to its one-of-a-kind environment, the IWC Flagship Boutique Beijing, which is the second Flagship Boutique in Asia, features a world premiere and not only for aficionados of Haute Horlogerie: a room dedicated to a star in IWC’s history, the Portuguese Sidérale Sca-
fusia. The pinnacle of mechanical and engineer- ing skills in the art of astronomical timekeeping today combines over 500 components, from the patented constant-force tourbillon escapement to the wheel train, culminating in the display of solar and sidereal time, twilight, sunrise,
and sunset, and the constantly changing view of the visible stars and constellations from the customer’s own horizon.
To mark the special occasion, IWC created a Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia room with a celestial chart on the case back showing the Forbidden City’s horizon. The new Flagship Boutique will be home to this master- piece, which reflects IWC’s founding principles: creating innovative watches with technologies ahead of their time, while always respecting sustainability and heritage. The combination of tradition and innovation deeply rooted in IWC’s multifaceted timepieces has now found a worthy new home in one of the world’s most ancient capitals.

Purple was one of the many jewel shades featured on the Chanel AW12 runway, with crystals contrasting with rich fabrics to create a futuristic vibe. At Miu Miu and Prada, purple featured in bold optical prints, resulting in a retro yet very modern feel, while Gucci showcased the shade in dramatic oversized furs.
The AW12 runways showed us the versatility of purple, but the constant factor was the color’s ability to enhance a look with a mysterious, transformative power. Dark, moody winter florals are given even more depth as a result of the shade, as shown by Warehouse and Hobbs London. And don’t worry about looking too matchy-matchy: the key is to wear the color all over in various prints and fabrics, and adding extra accents of purple with accessories is a clever way to further enrich your look. Try teaming Marks & Spencer’s velvet-look maxi dress with What’s About Town?’s gorgeous cocktail ring for very regal results.
