IT’S A MATTER OF TIME

Those in the know about the coolest chronometers and cutting-edge timers that glow in the darkest dark could find the latest, most celebrated men’s classics on display at COUTUREtime, a premiere, luxury watch event that took place early this summer at the Wynn Las Vegas and Encore.

Brands that featured timepieces included Anonimo, Baume & Mercier, Fendi, Gucci, TAG Heuer, Hermes, G Shock and Longines. Here are a few of the most coveted:

STYLE THAT’S SHAGADELIC

NO SCRATCHING THE SURFACE

Ateliers deMonaco has partnered with Prato Automobiles to create a watch known for precision and high-level performance. Better yet, the case is treated with a process called Armure that means it is five times more scratch-resistant than ordinary steel. Inside dials are made with 18-karat gold.

TICKING OUTSIDE THE BOX

With a box design and contemporary look, this Swiss classic watch defines “circle in a square.” The shape is an homage to the silhouette of an airplane cockpit clock. Features include outstanding readability at night, unparalleled brightness and the green tint known for long durability in the dark. Bell & Ross BR03-92 Nightlum, $3,800, exquisitetimepieces.com

No time to switch between that business watch and one for sport? This one combines a Swiss watch with a digital screen and sporty look. A GPS records your journey while the watch counts your steps. You can also be notified of incoming calls through your watch. Regular measurements of atmospheric pressure help pinpoint the weather. Alpina 1883 Geneve, $895, alpinerx.watch
