The Next Hour Neuchâtel
Fbg de l’Hôpital 78
2000 Neuchâtel

The giant, Pantone, decreed that blue would rule our lives last year. Watchmakers listened to him. The proof being five horizon-colored watches.

1. Abyss.
Oris Aquis Date Caliber 100


The diver’s watch, this piece whose memory is linked to the beach, to the turquoise sea, to the race to the buoy, to snorkeling, no longer seeks to be radicalized. With its deep blue dial, the Oris Aqua Date Caliber 100 blends into the urban landscape. Easy to wear, it goes with everything, but its 43.5mm diameter is better suited to imposing wrists. No, the myth of virility has not disappeared.

ID Card: Oris Aquis Date Caliber 100, automatic movement, steel, water resistant up to 300 meters, USD 3,500.

2. Blue Steel.
Hermes Large Moon Arch


There is no doubt that the primary vocation of this piece is to read the time on a summer evening on the terrace of a café on the Mediterranean coast. Hours, minutes, seconds and a full calendar are housed on a tone-on-tone ocean blue dial with a leather strap. The moon-phase and date counter decorated with a starry sky has been designed to mark the nights of lovers. “Talented Mr. Ripley, get out of this watch!”

ID Card: Hermès Arceau Grande Lune, automatic movement, steel, water resistant up to 30 meters, USD 6,100.

3. Ship ahoy!
IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph


Majestic blue, royal blue. Through this mantra, it is easy to understand that the color azure is the new black. Perceived by city dwellers as the height of chic, by sailors as the call of the open sea, this is what the stylish 44.6mm sports chrono embodies. Ideal for waking up the captain.

ID Card: IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph, automatic movement, steel, water resistant up to 60 meters, USD 13,100.

4. Miracle Morning.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Memovox Timer

No need to lie to each other! Waking up at 6:30am… it sucks! Here is the watch to enjoy the mornings, singing and stretching to soft music thanks to an alarm and countdown timer with synchronized indicators. Brush your teeth, make coffee, turn on the radio, the second part of waking up is gently done by watching, with one eye, the blue-hued dial that reconciles with the dawn.

ID Card: Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Memovox Timer, automatic movement, steel, water resistant up to 50 meters, USD 15,600.

5. Blue Dress Code.
Omega Constellation Co-Axial Master Chronometer


Characterized by its blue silk-patterned dial and natural sophistication, this constellation watch is inseparable from men who have elegance in their blood, like Don Draper in ‘Mad Men’. In these (slightly) more modern times, it would look good on the wrist of an urban man-about-town or a digital nomad who is banking on a sure thing, but keeps in mind the idea that the horizon is always better than working yourself to the bone.

ID Card: Omega Constellation Co-Axial Master Chronometer, automatic movement, gold Sedna™, water resistant up to 50 meters, USD 20,650.
