Another week has come and gone which means another round-up of all the latest watch related news in our weekly series, The Wind Up. In this week’s instalment, we’ll be featuring brand new pieces from the likes of Omega, H. Moser & Cie, Rolex and Bulgari. Enjoy gents!
H. Moser & Cie Streamliner Centre Seconds
Continuing on from its very well received chronograph model from January this year, H. Moser & Cie has dropped its latest piece in its new Streamliner collection, the Centre Seconds. Featuring a 40mm steel cushion case with a fully integrated bracelet and a stunning fume green dial, the Streamliner Centre Seconds is a captivating, ergonomic and wholesome timepiece.
Omega Seamaster Diver 300m Nekton Edition
Omega has released the latest variation of its venerable Seamaster. As partners of Nekton, a not-for-profit research foundation committed to protecting the Earth’s oceans, Omega has released the Seamaster Diver 300m Nekton Edition. Featuring a stunning titanium bezel offset by a matte black ceramic dial with polished waves, the Seamaster Diver 300m Nekton Edition looks a million bucks. I’m not normally one to harp on new editions, but in the case of the Seamaster Diver 300m Nekton Edition Omega really hit out of the ballpark.
Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Chronograph Skeleton
Bulgari’s ways of producing record-breaking timepieces has continued, this time with the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Chronograph Skeleton which has given Bulgari bragging rights to its 6th world record. Insanely thin and equally as complex, the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Chronograph Skeleton is a magnificent engineering achievement, combining beautiful aesthetics with an incredibly complicated calibre in a paper-thin package.
Breguet Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597
New from Breguet is the Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597. Openworking has been the name of the game for Breguet for many years now, and the Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597 is a fantastic representation of just how good Breguet is at skeletonising its watches. The Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597 features a retrograde date indicator on the bottom hemisphere of the dial, while retaining all of its bells and whistles in the form of intricate details throughout.
Rolex Drops Its 2020 Collection
Rolex announced a plethora of new timepieces. We covered the Submariner’s release here so instead we’ll turn our attention to the other releases, namely the Sky-Dweller and the Oyster Perpetual. First off the Sky-Dweller. Now available on Rolex’s patented Oysterflex bracelet, this otherwise super serious bit of watchmaking (which is also Rolex’s most complicated watch in production) now has a more sporty, casual feel to it. The Oyster Perpetual was unveiled too, now available in a variety of colours and sizes with something for everyone.
