The six-year-old French luxury watch brand (its name is derived from a combination of letters of its three founders’ names) combines traditional French leanings with modern L.A influences, producing elegant vintage-style men’s and women’s watches that boast a masculine appeal.

One noteworthy range: The Green Line collection, with watches in green-tinted faces (because green symbolises life), that aims to support suicide prevention by donating 1 per cent of the proceeds from the sale of these watches to the relevant associations. $790 to $1,975, available at Manifesto (#02-19 Capitol Piazza) and Red Army Watches (#03-02 Wisma Atria)
