QNET’s luxury Swiss watchmaker introduces four new watches in its new Empire Collection
Dubai - 20, May 2022: Bernhard H. Mayer, QNET’s luxury Swiss watch and jewellery brand has revealed a new collection of luxury watches, titled ‘Empire – The Measure of a Moment’. The presentation and function of this new collection of timepieces are designed to reflect the synthesis of the Swiss watchmaker’s enduring tradition of excellence and modern innovation.
Like all Bernhard H. Mayer watches, the Empire collection is versatile, adapting to the personality of the wearer and it is designed to be functional, yet elegant, serving its wearer on any occasion. This collection comprises of Empire Portus Watch and Empire Clara Watch which are available with two different options for strap, rubber and stainless steel. The watches are available in either stainless steel or rose gold colour scheme.
Each timepiece in the collection is powered by the decorated, self-winding Swiss automatic movement and its design is inspired by a classic style with a contemporary, sophisticated design aesthetic. The construction of the watches in the collection consists of a rhodium-plated movement, featuring an oscillating weight with a gorgeous decoration – the “Côtes de Genève”. It adds to the sense of depth in the watch’s face by catching and reflecting light off of the movement.
It also has circular-grained bridges with snailed bevels and undercuts that have traditional heat-blued screws. Additionally, the watches’ all-steel bracelet, lugs, casing and bezel are performance engineered with brushes and stainless steel to provide a smart union of classic style with durability and innovation.

We conceptualized a stylish, elegant, and striking design that combines modern design with a classic refinement, capturing the measure of every moment.”
