Welcome to the next instalment of our regular series looking at all of the latest watch releases, The Wind Up. In this week’s column, we have new watches from the likes of HYT, Luminox, Arnold & Son and Breguet. So, as always gents, sit back and enjoy!
HYT SOONOW DROP THREE
Featuring a vivid aesthetic, HYT’s latest variation of its SOONOW is a sight to behold, that’s for sure. Striking, loud and fresh, the SOONOW DROP THREE combines the popping colours of turquoise, orange and burgundy with the incredible feat of fluidic time mechanics that HYT has become renowned for.
Luminox x Bear Grylls
Adventurer Bear Grylls has teamed up with Luminox to create a collection of durable watches more than equipped to accompany you on your next extreme holiday. Crafted out of CARBONOX, a carbon-based material that is exclusive to Luminox, the new collection ranges from the diver inspired SEA Series, to the MASTER and LAND Series, each featuring an eclectic, functional design.
Arnold & Son Nebula 38 Steel
Arnold & Son’s distinctive Nebula 38 is now available in steel following the launch of a red-gold version. Evoking the look of an inverted star that has exploded, the Nebula 38 features bridges that all converge from the outside of the dial into the centre, meeting smack bang in the middle of the open-worked dial. This symmetrical look is wonderfully difficult to execute, made far more difficult with the skeletonisation of said dial. One of my favourite pieces from Arnold & Son for sure.
Breguet Drops Three New Models
Breguet has released three brand new timepieces much to the joy of the collective watch community. The first is the Classique 7137 which features a simple and wholly traditional design. The second is the Classique 7337 featuring calendrier functions in a beautiful manner. And the third is the mesmerising Marine Tourbillon Equation Marchante 5887. Out of the lot, I would definitely be pulling the trigger on the Classique 7337.
Bremont Also Drops Three New Watches
Bremont has announced three brand new watches, the ALT1-C Griffon, the Bremont Project Possible and the ALT1-P2 JET. The ALT1-C Griffon draws inspiration from the Spitfire that the brand’s co-founder’ father operated and features a beautiful vintage-esque aesthetic. The Project Possible celebrates Nirmal ‘Nims’ Purja’s incredible mountaineering feats, where he climbed the Earth’s 14 tallest mountains, all higher than 8,000m, in less than 7 months (smashing the previous record of nearly 8 years, mind you). And finally the ALT1-P2 JET, a piece clad in black DLC and made in collaboration with the “real-life Ironman” Richard Browning, a British inventor and entrepreneur who is the brainchild behind the Gravity Jet Suit.
