    "It's simple yet elegant," says Geragos of Jaquet Droz's Grande Seconde watch, whose distinctive feature is the off-center placement of its two subdials. The latest version, available in either 39mm or 43mm, offers a sunray finish on an anthracite-colored dial for the first time. $9,500, at Feldmar Watch Co., Los Angeles.

  • Patek Philippe Split Seconds Chronograph

    Occasion: In Court

    A watch in steel, white gold or platinum will read less showy in front of a jury than a yellow or rose gold one. Geragos likes this new 38mm Patek Philippe Split Seconds Chronograph with Perpetual Calendar and Moon Phases in platinum with a blue sunburst dial. Price upon request, at Gearys Beverly Hills.

  • Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller

    Occasion: In Court

Perfect for frequent travelers, this 42mm dual-time-zone watch is water-resistant to 100 meters and is available in combinations of black, white, champagne and blue dials with steel and white or yellow gold bands. $14,400 to $17,150, at rolex.com and at Gearys Beverly Hills.

    The constantly spinning tourbillon on Ulysse Nardin's latest addition to its Marine collection makes this a splashy piece, appropriate for outside court only. The 43mm watch, which boasts an in-house-made movement, displays a 60-hour power reserve indicator on its beautifully enameled milky white dial. $28,000, in stainless steel, at Ulysse Nardin, New York.

    The statement-making red gold case contrasts beautifully with the black dial on this new 43mm chronograph, which boasts an in-house movement, 42-hour power reserve, a flyback function (a stopwatch feature that allows the second hand to automatically reset to zero) and a Louisiana alligator strap. $21,000, at Feldmar.

    Geragos' flashiest choice is Audemars Piguet's 41mm Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin Open worked in brushed pink gold. Its skeletonized movement, made of 216 components, beautifully shows off the spinning tourbillon. Previously available only in platinum and yellow gold, the watch has a 70-hour power reserve. Around $222,000, in a limited edition of 50, at Audemars Piguet, Beverly Hills.

This new 42mm model features a date window at 6 o'clock. "This one's got game," says Geragos. $5,300, on a polished steel bracelet, at tagheuer.com.
