As a partner of the UEFA Champions League, Hublot has released the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph UEFA Champions League to celebrate the opening of the Round of 16.

Longines Conquest V.H.P

One of the most innovate modern Quartz-powered timepieces, Longines’ Conquest V.H.P was previously only available with a super durable steel bracelet. Longines has now offered the Conquest V.H.P with a supple leather strap, perfectly combining the watch’s innate qualities with a touch of elegance and sophistication. The brown leather strap offers a luxurious look to the Conquest V.H.P, which in itself is an easy enough watch to dress up or down.

Raymond Weil Freelancer Calibre RW1212

The next watchmaker to jump on the green bandwagon is Raymond Weil with the exceptional Freelancer Calibre RW1212. Featuring bold green accents, a dial with multiple textural elements and a window peering into the beating heart of the movement, the Freelancer Calibre RW1212 has charisma and poise without seeming like too much. Continuing the green theme, the Freelancer Calibre RW1212 is available on a green fabric strap which looks superb and adds elements of casualness to the piece.

A. Lange & Söhne Leap Year 2020

The leap year is a massive deal for watch enthusiasts and collectors alike. Every collector who owns a perpetual calendar will be peering at their watch, waiting for the date to shift from February 28 to February 29, a phenomenon that only occurs once every four years. Over the years, A. Lange & Söhne has launched eight timepieces that consider this, and with that they have used the same approach for each piece. However, with the introduction of the Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar, A. Lange & Söhne enlisted an entirely new approach to facilitating the extra day every four years. This super technical change really can’t be summarized in a paragraph, so for everyone interested in the leap year change and perpetual calendars, I implore you to visit A. Lange & Söhne’s website and have a read about it yourself.

A Celebration of 50 Years of Tudor Chronographs

Initially launched in 1970, Tudor’s first chronograph was robust, functional and completely out of left field. Named the Oysterdate, this was the first of many series of watches that would, at each evolution, incorporate new technologies and materials, marking Tudor as a prime player in the sports chronograph market space. From the Series 7000 which was powered by the Valjoux 7743 all the way to the manufacture calibre released in 2017 with the Black Bay Chronograph, Tudor has continued to evolve its chronograph through its 8 series changes over the past half-century. Here’s to another 50 years!
