Continuing An Exquisite Journey Into Time

Following last year’s successful launch of PHILIPP PLEIN Swiss Made timepieces, the brand unveiled a captivating and disruptive new collection that features two distinct lines of masterpieces: the PHILIPP PLEIN Crypto King Flying Tourbillon and the Crypto King Hexagon.

The new collection was presented at an exclusive pop-up store in the heart of Geneva during Watches and Wonders Geneva 2024.

Speaking at the event, Philipp Plein, Founder and Creative Director of the eponymous brand, expressed his excitement about the launch, saying: “Watches have always been an integral part of fashion and self-expression. It’s a journey that started last year with our collection at Watches and Wonders, we aim to redefine luxury timepieces, offering our loyal, distinguished clientele an unparalleled blend of sophistication and style.”

THE CRYPTO KING FLYING TOURBILLON: BEYOND TIME

This exceptional creation marks a significant step forward for PHILIPP PLEIN in the world of Haute Horlogerie, pushing the boundaries of innovation and craftsmanship while solidifying the brand’s position at the forefront of the watchmaking artistry.

The bespoke Landeron calibre PWL100LPP manual winding flying coaxial tourbillon movement is a demonstration of watchmaking virtuosity while integrating PHILIPP PLEIN’s passion for mechanical innovation.

The exceptionally open window dial offers an exciting view of the flying tourbillon; its inner workings are revealed as a symphony of gears seemingly floating, giving the impression of weightlessness and offering perfect visibility.

The coaxial escapement, a testament to Swiss precision engineering, further enhances the watch’s exceptional performance.

The collection offers four distinct models, each boasting an exceptional colour combination that defies convention.

  • DARE DEVIL XII: A fiery fusion of red and white, featuring a transparent PU strap for a modern touch.
  • NINJA PANDA: A classic contrast of black and white, with the white silicone strap complementing the look.
  • DRAGON FIRE: An electrifying mix of black and orange, accentuated by a soft-touch silicone strap.
  • NIGHT WOLF: The pinnacle of the collection, showcasing an attractive black carbon case alongside luxurious 18-carat rose gold screws, hexagonal side cage and crown.

The watch boasts a lightweight yet incredibly strong tonneau-shaped case of 55 x 46mm, crafted from high-performance forged carbon. This high-tech material offers exceptional strength and a great masculine look and feel, enriched by the elevated branding elements that make this timepiece unique and recognisable.

The PHILIPP PLEIN signature Hexagon motif is meticulously integrated throughout the watch, the Symbol of Greatness not only enriches the top ring, but perforates the strap, adorns the 12 o’clock PP logo and even extends to the 10 screws on the case itself.

Turn the watch over and the unique personality of PHILIPP PLEIN shines through. The back case window showcases disruptive elements – the brand’s iconic $miley and $kull-bone alongside the watchmaker’s signature initials.

Produced in a limited edition, each Crypto King Flying Tourbillon embodies the esteemed tradition of Swiss watchmaking while remaining true to the brand’s unconventional and irreverent philosophy.

THE CRYPTO KING HEXAGON: ARCHITECTURAL SOPHISTICATION

The PHILIPP PLEIN Crypto King Hexagon embodies the perfect harmony of functionality, architecture and design. Its distinctive features include a tonneau-shaped case adorned with the brand’s signature hexagonal motif, a cutting-edge strap and a powerful Swiss Made automatic movement. The impeccable craftsmanship and robust case construction uphold the highest standards of Swiss watchmaking precision.

Measuring 55 x 45mm, the Crypto King Hexagon boasts a double-layered, open dial showcasing the recognisable hexagon logo with the double PP emblem. The see-through caseback and double-domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating provide a mesmerising glimpse into the intricate workings of the timepiece.
