Perfectly uniting the traditional and the modern, this exceptional double rifle from Boss & Co features traditional rose and scroll engraving, double triggers and a stunning Swarovski scope.

Tonino Lamborghini’s range of eyewear nods to luxury sports cars with subtle detailing. We’re particularly smitten with this pair; featuring a honeycomb metal grid inspired by a ventilation grille, along with mechanical-inspired metal hinges that are reminiscent of car rims.

5. Louis Moinet SpaceWalker
Louis Moinet’s collaboration with Alexey Leonov – he’s the first man to perform a spacewalk, don’t you know – has resulted in the SpaceWalker, which is as record-breaking as its namesake. A diamond revolves around the tourbillon, which is an arresting contrast against the celestial artwork that makes up the dial behind.
6. Dan D’Agostino Relentless Monoblock Amplifier
It’s our tech issue, so how could we fail to mention one of the most stunning launches of the year? The Dan D’Agostino Relentless Monoblock was the talking point at Munich High End, and, quite simply, is a mono amplifier that has to be heard to be believed.

8. Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table III
The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table III is an exceptional piece. It uses low poly art to create 12 3D pink gold knights, who point their sword at a table sculpted from solid blue enamel blocks. A bold take on a classic tale, it’s one worth wearing on your wrist.
