Accutron and Bulova Revive Space Age Design

From JustLuxe content partner iW Magazine

Accutron and Bulova celebrate their shared history with NASA and the US space program by launching the Accutron Astronaut and Bulova Lunar Pilot, each inspired by vintage space age designs.

The new Accutron Astronaut

NASA worked closely with Accutron to develop clocks, instrumental panel clocks, and timekeepers for the internal mechanisms integral to numerous missions to space from the mid-1950s to the mid-1970s.

Similarly, Bulova watches were worn by astronauts and pilots in the same era. On August 2, 1971, the mission commander of Apollo 15 made lunar history while wearing a Bulova chronograph.

Accutron Astronaut

Referencing the 1968 “T” version of its Astronaut model, Accutron has now relaunched the model with an update that specifically highlights the watch’s distinctive day/night bezel. The new 41mm steel-cased Accutron Astronaut is the first reissue of what Accutron calls “an exciting new series of Accutron Astronaut timepieces.”

The new model offers a vintage-perfect double box sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, but updates the movement with the Selita SW330 GMT automatic caliber which, in another update, is partially exposed through an exhibition case back.

Accutron fits the watch with a ‘bullet’ steel bracelet. The Accutron Astronaut is a limited edition of 300 pieces. Price: $3,500.

Bulova Lunar Pilot

With two new Lunar Pilot watches, Bulova expands its popular Archive series with original vintage-sized replicas of Bulova watches worn on the moon. You may recall the first (and highly successful) watch in the series, the 50th Anniversary Lunar Pilot Limited Edition, a 45mm model that celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the Bulova Apollo 15 mission in 2021.

For the latest model, the case shape remains surprisingly contemporary, measuring a full 43.5mm in diameter.

Bulova is offering the new watch with a black dial (like the original) or a sporty two-tone blue and white chronograph dial.

Bulova brand’s proprietary NP20 high precision quartz (HPQ) 1/20 second chronograph movement fits both models.

Both watches are available on steel bracelets and each has a matching leather strap.

Bulova pairs the black dialed version with a black leather strap and offers a blue leather strap with a two-tone chronograph. Both straps attach to the wrist with latched spring bars for interchangeability with bracelets at will. Price: $895.

Top 5 Best Sellers – Oval-Shaped Engagement Rings

Oval-shaped engagement rings have been gaining popularity in recent years, and it’s no wonder why. With an elegant and timeless design, oval engagement rings offer a unique and sophisticated look that makes them a great alternative to traditional round diamonds.

Whether looking for a classic or contemporary design, an oval engagement ring is a great choice. In this article, we’ll look at some of the best-selling oval engagement rings on the market and some tips for choosing the perfect oval engagement ring.

Why choose an oval?

Oval-shaped diamonds are extremely shiny due to their brilliant cut, making them a desirable choice. The elongated shape is also flattering on the hand, making it an excellent choice for an engagement ring.

The recent increase in their popularity is due in part to their unique and elegant appearance. They have a higher surface area, which means they look larger than a round, and they are more affordable than other fancy-shaped diamonds.

Oval is a stylish choice, holding a round traditional soft aesthetic but with a unique contemporary appeal.

1 delicate band

Oval-shaped stones look gorgeous in delicate engagement ring bands like The Camellia and Pave Camellia. The thin band enhances the visual size of the stone and works with its long shape to elongate and flatter the hand.

Single-stone settings are returning to popularity this year. The classic solitaire look is sleek and effortless, and its timeless appeal looks great with an elegant oval.

Each of these settings features a hidden halo that elevates the stone and adds sparkle from every angle. Pavé bands introduce endless sparkle, celebrating delicate silhouettes while adding interesting movement from every angle.

2 diamond studded settings

Diamond-encrusted bands are always popular, but none top the best-seller lists like The Penelope.

Combining a delicate band of diamond-encrusted sparkle, the Penelope is a unique and playful engagement ring setting. Round brilliant diamonds add movement to the band, elevating the look from a simple solitaire.

Incredibly thin bands make an oval stone seem floating. The elongated shape is ideal for stacking, reaching over a wedding band and bringing two rings together.

3 Unique and modern

Unique and unexpected engagement ring settings like The Twig have a very modern feel. The nature-inspired band is full of texture and movement that grabs your attention and won’t let go.

The delicate band features two sparkling side stones that add a touch of elegance and symmetry while the twisting branches give the ring an ethereal feel. The contemporary band is set off a classic-split shank giving it a timeless feel.

An unconventional engagement ring mixed with modern stone choices like the oval gives the band a youthful and fresh energy. Etsy, Pinterest, and Buzzfeed all agree that Twig is an unforgettable bestseller.

4 Classic Fairy Tales

The Nellie engagement ring with an oval-shaped diamond combines the soft delicate lines of a classic solitaire with a sprinkle of a little fairytale magic.

A hidden halo at the base of the diamond elevates the stone to a new level. It’s a playful twist on classic solitaire with the whimsical appeal of a Disney princess ring. The timeless appeal of its sleek lines perfectly matches the subtle yet unique silhouette of an oval.

Solitaire and single-stone settings are trending right now. Nellie is a unique setting choice with an underrated appeal and a touch of classic glamour.

5 round and marquise sidestones

The sparkling appeal of an oval-shaped diamond meets two other classic stones in this best-selling diamond-encrusted setting engagement ring.

Lindsay features circular, and marquis cut stones along its ridges. The combination creates a very elegant look. Sparkling stones add plenty of sparkle while their shapes work together to guide your eye towards the oval. The smooth lines have a soft feel that brings out the magic of the stone.

Lindsay pairs perfectly with every wedding band. The matching stones come together in a perfect set, creating a modern feel with timeless style. An elongated oval stone with a chevron elongates the look, while round and marquise stones add continuous brilliant sparkle.

Tips for choosing the perfect oval

Selecting the perfect oval-shaped diamond is not as difficult as you might think. The stone’s bright sparkle makes it quite forgiving, so you’re sure to find a gorgeous stone within your budget.

Start by figuring out what that budget looks like. This will help you narrow down your options.

Consider diamond quality using the 4Cs:

  • Cutting is the most important factor. Look for a bright stone with lots of sparkle and little to no dark spots
  • Always choose a stone that looks colorless. You can usually find one in the GH range.
  • Always select an eye clean diamond. Look for a stone with no visible scars. You can find a quality stone with a clarity rating in the VS range.
  • Consider your style. Do you prefer a more traditional look or a more contemporary one?

One more word in the oval

Oval engagement rings are a beautiful and unique option for those looking for something different from the traditional round diamond. With their elegant and timeless design, ovals offer a sophisticated look that stands out.

If you’ve been eyeing oval engagement rings, these best-sellers are a great place to start. Whether you’re looking for a classic or more contemporary design, an oval can be an elegant and affordable choice.

Bell and Ross team with Allen Silberstein for the Black Ceramic Trio

From JustLuxe content partner iW Magazine

Bell & Ross’ Carlos Rosillo and Bruno Bellamich teamed up with watch design legend Alain Silberstein to create a trio of watches that combine Silberstein’s colorful shapes with a black ceramic version of Bellmich’s aviation-inspired square Bell & Ross BR 03 design.

As the fourth offering from United Singapore-based Grail Watches, the two watchmakers have created the Bell & Ross × Alain Silberstein Black Ceramic Trilogy, which includes a BR 03 time-only model with date, a BR 03 diving watch and a BR. 03 Chronograph.

All three watches now use a more common, smaller version of the BR 03 case. While the original BR 01 measured 46mm × 46mm, the latest BR 03 collections measure 42mm × 42mm, the size of each model in the new Grail Watch collection.

Notably, none of the watches feature the brand’s logo.

“We decided to use only the ampersand which already features prominently in our brand name because what better symbol for collaboration between equals can you imagine?” Bellamych said.

“With the chronograph, Carlos explained that the second hand was the largest hand ever put on one of their watches, and we had to make sure that the reset function worked perfectly every time so that it aligned exactly at zero,” added Silberstein.

“With diving watches, we had to make sure that these huge hands were as light as possible, so that they wouldn’t affect the overall accuracy of the movement. And then creating a two-color ceramic bezel was a big challenge.”

Bell & Ross x Alain Silberstein BR 03-92 Marine 22, showing large hands.

time date

The first watch in the trio, the Bell & Ross x Alain Silberstein BR 03-92 Klub 22, is a time-only model in a matte black ceramic case and jet-black dial.

Bell & Ross x Alain Silberstein BR 03-92 Club 22.

Silberstein’s large hand design creates a playful dial while a large blue arrow indicates the minutes and an S-shaped yellow form indicates the seconds.

The dial is only interrupted by the subtle date indicator. The watch features an automatic movement caliber BR.CAL-302 with date function. Priced at $4,400, it will be produced in 200 examples.

dive watch

The Bell & Ross x Alain Silberstein BR 03-92 Marine 22, the second model in the trio, is a reimagined dive model.

Bell & Ross x Alain Silberstein BR 03-92 Marine 22.

Here Silberstein applies his “maxi” hands, which include a blue circular hour hand and a large red arrow. Although both hands are generously coated with luminous material, the minute hand is particularly visible due to its critical elapsed dive time function.

To that end, the designer created a specialized two-tone ceramic bezel with a colored red insert for the last twenty minutes and a complete set of 20-minute markers with luminous indicators.

The Bell & Ross x Alain Silberstein BR 03-92 Marine 22 diver model has a depth of 300 meters, has a screw-down crown and is powered by caliber BR.CAL-302, the same automatic movement with date function as the time-only model. It will be produced in a series of 100 examples. Price: $5,600.


The third model in the series is the Bell & Ross x Alain Silberstein BR 03 Krono 22, a chronograph featuring five of Silberstein’s famous Bauhaus-inspired hands.

Bell & Ross x Alain Silberstein BR 03 Chrono 22.

Hours are indicated by a red circle, minutes are indicated by a blue arrow Here, a yellow S-shaped hand serves as the chronograph seconds indicator while a blue triangle serves as the 30-minute chronograph indicator and a yellow arrow displays the continuous seconds.

Unlike the other two debuts, this model offers a crown that features Silberstein’s signature red triangle.

Bell & Ross x Alain Silberstein BR 03 Chrono 22 Caliber BR.CAL-301 Powered by automatic chronograph movement with date. Made in 100 examples, the watch costs $6,700.
