Frankfurt-based watchmaker Christian Koban has released its Army Blue model from its diamond watch collection.
   Army Blue features diamonds and sapphires—but builds them in to a camouflage look. There are 923 pavé-set sapphires totalling 8·71 ct and 121 pavé-set black diamonds totalling 1·1 ct. The strap is in stingray, with the stainless steel body measuring 42 mm.
   Christian Koban has a showroom in Berlin and retail outlets in the US, Austria and Kazakhstan.

   Meanwhile, the latest model from Boegli is the Grand Opera. The Swiss company has dedicated this watch to ‘men with classic and timeless style’.
   The Grand Opera consists of a three-level dial set on the base, accompanied with elegant blue screws. A unique design that has been added to this watch is the Côtes de Genève, which are the parallel ribs made with with a cutter that leaves thin streaks, seen on the right-hand side. The watch is also equipped with a genuine alligator leather strap with a butterfly buckle.
   Through the Sapphire crystals located on the dial, you can see a keyboard with 17 notes, which sound the melody of ‘The Magic Flute’ by Mozart. The deeper level from the main dial sees the time zone, with a calendar positioned at 9 o’clock.
   Only 99 of these watches are being made. It is also available in stainless steel, black or two tone.—Tania Naidu
