An ingenious mechanism lies at the heart of the MaƮtres du Temps Chapter three: a pusher on the center of the crown lowers concealed panels of the dial to reveal two hidden time indications: a second time zone indication (also known as GMT) and a day/ night indicator. A second press of the pusher restores the two indications to their "secret" hiding place. Limited-edition of 50 pieces ($93,000; maitresdutemps.com). In 1956, Jaeger-LeCoultre enriched its Memovox range by developing the world's first automatic watch equipped with an alarm function. It went on to inspire a long line of later designs, and celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2016. Taking inspiration from the 1970s, the current Master Memorex Boutique Edition boasts a stainless steel case, braided "Trieste" cotton strap, and a dial reminiscent of the Memorex Snowdrop ($10,800; jaeger-lecoultre.com). slmag.net 61
