Richard Mille RM 33-02
Combining the stylistic cues of a sports watch in a something super high-end seems to be exactly what the new RM 33-02 from Richard Mille represents. Featuring a rounded case with abstract angles and curves, the RM 33-02 is as striking as it is recognisable. As different as it may look, make no mistake that the RM 33-02 is as Richard Mille as Richard Mille can get. A high-tech Carbon TPT case with satin-finished red gold throughout, the RM 33-02 is as alluring as it is delectable. The RM 33-02 is limited to only 140 pieces and is priced at $145,000USD. Add that to my Christmas list for 2020.
Tutima Saxon One Racing Red
Featuring an expansive red dial with differing shades of red for the sub-dials, all packaged in a stainless steel 43mm wide by 15.70mm cushion-shaped care, the new Saxon One Racing Red from Tutima is hardly a watch you’d want to wear if you’re not keen on being the focal point of the party. But, as interesting as the aesthetics are of the Saxon One Racing Red, mechanically it is super sound, too. The Saxon One Racing Red is powered by the Tutima Calibre 521, based on the renowned Valjoux 7750. Red lovers, this one’s for you!
Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda Chronor Slate
New from Parmigiani Fleurier is the Tonda Chronor Slate, an emphatic dress watch featuring an integrated split-seconds chronograph with a large date indicator all encased in a super sumptuous rose gold case (also available in white gold). The warmth of the rose gold, coupled with the sophisticated look of the slate grey dial really elevates the Tonda Chronor Slate’s aesthetic, as does the heavily decorated movement. The flared lugs, ornate case structure and knurled bezel round off what is a super appealing watch, too. Priced at $135,000USD, the Tonda Chronor Slate has tremendous value for money given what other watchmakers are charging for similar watches.
Doxa Sub 200 Collection
With 12 new references with 6 different colours, the new Sub 200 collection from Doxa represents variety and uniqueness, with something for everyone. Available on either a rubber strap or with a steel “beads of rice” bracelet, the Sub 200 is the perfect daily beater. With all of the signature colours of the old Doxa catalogue (like Professional Orange, Searambler Silver, Sharkhunter Black, Aquamarine Turquois, Divingstar Yellow and Caribbean Navy”, the Doxa 200 combines all of the best qualities of a typical Doxa in such an accessible package.
Seiko Presage Enamel Dial Automatic
Based on the works of Riki Watanabe, the famed Japanese designer, the new Presage Enamel Dial Automatic embodies the tenets of simplicity, purpose and boldness. Available with either a burgundy red or milky white enamel dial, the Presage Enamel Dial Automatic itself can be dressed up or worn casually quite easily. Easy to look at and to the point, the Presage Enamel Dial Automatic is clean and crisp with a dash of ornateness. The new additions to Seiko’s Presage collection will be made available in the new year.
