Haribo / Rolex Yacht-Master
If you’re in touch with your inner child we have just the watch for you: the Rolex Yacht-Master 40mm. Its bezel set with 38 candy-coloured sapphires makes it one of the brand’s most playful and colourful creations. Affectionately nicknamed the “Haribo” by collectors, this watch will bring a welcome burst of energy to the young and not-so-young among us. Let’s all sing along with the slogan: “Kids and grown-ups love it so – the happy world of Haribo!”

Carac / Tree of Life
The “Tree of Life” watch by Kerbedanz, unveiled at Baselworld in 2016, represents immortality, continuity and life. A total of 540 green emeralds are snow-set into the bezel, continuing on the bracelet lugs. This limited series of 41 may be spotted on the wrists of women with good taste and high standards. The Tree of Life goes perfectly with the “carac” – a Swiss tart filled with chocolate, topped with green icing. Together, the jewellery watch and the pastry help to maintain a strong sense of reality.

Lemon tart / Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic
Sunny, bright, optimistic – do these adjectives speak to you? The Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic by Hublot represents all of these qualities. Debuting the first ceramic to be produced in a vivid yellow colour, the watch is equipped with the Unico HUB1280 manufacture movement. Eye-popping from the dial to the yellow strap, the Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic doesn’t take life too seriously. This watch, alongside a portion of lip-pursing lemon tart, will do your heart and soul no end of good.

Canelé / Reverso Duetto Medium
The reversible case of the Reverso Duetto Medium gives the watch two different personalities: classic elegance on the back, and contained exuberance on the front. Its elegant design is a perfect match for the canelé, a cake from the Bordeaux region of France. The fluted caramelised crust contrasts strongly with the soft, tender centre. The two dials offer two different ways to tell the time, making doubly sure you won’t forget make time for your tasty afternoon treat.
