TIME (BLACK)OUT

Noires soeurs

As a change from brightly colored watches, some brands are opting for a more understated and elegant design, clothing their new creations in black. From ceramic to metal with a PVD or DLC coating, as well as carbon and titanium, the materials used are as diverse as they are varied. The advantage of this darker shade ? It’s discreet and goes with all types of outfits !
