Best Watch Releases of Watches & Wonders 2022 – Part 2

After a massive opening 24 hours that saw Rolex come firmly out of left-field and TAG Heuer drop a seriously sparkly new Carrera, it was hard to imagine what Watches & Wonders 2022 had in store for day two. Somewhat unsurprisingly, however, the monumental Watches & Wonders 2023: A Complete Guide to the Watch Trade Show didn’t disappoint. Outrageous new timepieces were unveiled by Piaget, Patek Philippe, TAG Heuer, Vacheron Constantin, A. Lange & Söhne and a whole host of others. Here are the biggest and best watch releases from Watches & Wonders – Part 2.

A. Lange & Söhne Odysseus

For this year’s event, German luxury brand A. Lange & Söhne unveiled the third iteration of its Odysseus timepiece, but there was something a little special about this one. The 2022 edition marks the Maison’s first-ever titanium watch, in terms of case metal. Limited to just 250 pieces worldwide, the new Odysseus is powered by the same L155.1 Datomatic calibre as previous models, however, it will be far lighter, increasing wearability. A seriously exciting move from the heritage brand.

Brand: A. Lange & Söhne
Model: Odysseus
Reference Number: 363.117
Diameter: 40.5mm
Water Resistance: 120 metres
Calibre: L155.1 Datomatic
Power Reserve: 50 hours
Price: $56,500

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Solargraph

TAG Heuer’s 40mm Aquaracer lineup is among the brand’s most popular and for good reason. Ultra-sturdy and stunningly designed, the timepieces have a ‘modern classic’ vibe that just got a handy new boost. For the first time ever, TAG Heuer has crafted a solar-powered model, entitled the Aquaracer Solargraph. Arriving in a black DLC-coated steel case with a closed caseback, the new piece is reminscent of the Aquaracer Outdoors collection, albeit with a slightly more translucent dial. According to the brand, the movement requires just two minutes of direct sunlight to operate for an entire day, with an additional power save mode engaged by pulling out the crown. New age stuff from the Swiss legend.

Brand: TAG Heuer
Model: Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph
Reference Number: WBP1112.FT6199
Diameter: 40mm
Water Resistance: 200 metres

Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers Minute Repeater Tourbillon Split-Seconds Monopusher Chronograph

With a name like that, we kind of wish we were getting paid by the word. Vacheron Constantin’s new Les Cabinotiers Minute Repeater Tourbillon Split-Seconds Monopusher Chronograph is the kind of timepiece Watches & Wonders was designed for. Haute Horology in every sense of the phrase, the watch features 698 components and more functions than a Shamwow. Inside, the movement is Vacheron’s in-house calibre 2757, which the brand claims is finished by hand to the highest standard. From a technical standpoint, this might be the most impressive watch of the industry expo so far.

Brand: Vacheron Constantin
Model: Les Cabinotiers Minute Repeater Tourbillon Split-Seconds Monopusher Chronograph
Diameter: 45mm
Water Resistance: 200 metres

TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf

From Steve McQueen to Jack Heuer himself, the Monaco has a rich connection to motor racing and in 2022, TAG Heuer has doubled down. The brand unveiled a new Gulf livery-style iteration of the classic square-case watch, complete with the iconic orange and blue colouration and a Gulf stamp near six o’clock. Firmly rooted in vintage aesthetics, the bold colours and typography really suit the Gulf design, giving the timepiece a more contemporary feel than it has any right to own. Inside, the new Monaco is powered by the Calibre Heuer02 Automatic, which features 80 hours of power reserve.

Reference Number: CBL2115.FC6494

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar Chronograph

A slightly more palatable name than its sibling release, the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar Chronograph arrives with a tasty side of platinum. The 2022 novelty marks a brand first, with the new 43mm model offered in platinum with a salmon dial. In terms of functions, fans will note the full perpetual calendar, 30-minute chronograph and moonphase disc, however, when it comes to actually scoring one of these bad boys, you might be in for a bit of an uphill battle. Reports are suggesting the new release will be priced at north of AUD$150,000, however, that is yet to be confirmed.

Brand: Vacheron Constantin
Model: Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar Chronograph
Reference Number: 5000T/000P-B975
Water Resistance: 30 metres
Calibre: 1142 QP

Bold, unapologetic and seriously impressive, the Vacheron Constantin Overseas lineup is back and better than ever.
