Welcome to this week’s instalment of our regular series looking at all of the latest watch releases in the industry, The Wind Up. In this week’s round-up we’ll be featuring new watches from Chopard, Hublot, Omega and Bremont. Enjoy gents!
Chopard L.U.C XP II Sarto Kiton
Chopard has announced its partnership with the master Italian tailors, Kiton Ateliers, with the stunning L.U.C XP II Sarto Kiton. Featuring a beadblasted DLC-coated steel case with a dark houndstooth pattern dial, the L.U.C XP II Sarto Kiton is a beautiful timepiece that accentuates the finer details of its respective Maisons.
Hublot Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto
Yohji Yamamoto has been offering transcending style for the past 50 years and Hublot, recognising the unique characteristics of the brand, has created a timepiece to commemorate the artistic approach of Yamamoto. The watch in question is the Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto, featuring Yamamoto’s iconic textiles and daring motifs that set the tone for a gritty camouflage timepiece.
Omega Seamaster Diver 300 M Chronograph Gold Titanium Tantalum
Omega has just dropped its latest version of the acclaimed Seamaster Diver 300 M. Clad in three distinct allows, the Seamaster Diver 300 M Chronograph Gold Titanium Tantalum is a beautiful combination of precious metals and lightweight alloys in a distinct package that is supremely beautiful and wonderfully functional. The use of tantalum is difficult but the result is often a product that is second to none. Such is the case with the Seamaster Diver 300 M Chronograph Gold Titanium Tantalum. I love the harmonious look of the different shades of metals throughout, accentuated by the Sedna Gold highlights. A fantastic piece that offers so much.
Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Moon Anthracite
Jaquet Droz has a penchant for creating beautiful, timeless and minimalistic watches. And the Grande Seconde Moon Anthracite is another prime example of the watchmaker’s ability to offer something that is just incredible. The Grande Seconde Moon Anthracite is a gorgeous piece that combines a grey sandblasted dial with blued steel hands and a blued steel moon disc. The moon disc itself features a white gold star and moon appliques, further emphasising Jaquet Droz’s artisanal approach to the Grande Seconde Moon Anthracite. Jaw-dropping.
Bremont has been named as the official timing partner to Rolls-Royce, and so to celebrate this occasion it has released its latest chronometer, the ionBird. Built to withstand the incredible speeds and pressures that the Rolls-Royce team would have to endure to break the current world record of the fastest zero-emission aircraft, the ionBird features a lightweight aviation-grade titanium case which houses a chronometer-rated GMT movement safely cushioned against shot using Bremont’s proprietary “Anti-Shock” technology. The ionBird is available on either a brown nubuck strap or on a bracelet and is the first piece to commemorate this iconic partnership.
