Welcome to the latest instalment of our regular series where we focus on all of the latest watch news, The Wind Up. In this week’s round-up we’ll be featuring the newest watches from the likes of Hublot, NOMOS Glashütte, Bell & Ross and Omega. Enjoy gents!
Hublot Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II
In collaboration with the renowned tattoo artist Maxime Plescia-Büchi, Hublot has released the all-black Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II. Featuring three-dimensional geometrical architecture, the Big Bang Unico Sang Bleu II has a very unique and existential look to it that is consistent with the tattoo artist’s grapho-typo style.
NOMOS Glashütte Lambda
To celebrate its 175th year of watchmaking, NOMOS Glashütte has released a limited edition stainless steel version of its acclaimed Lambda. Available in a white, black or blue enamel dial, the steel variation of the Lambda has a distinct yet functional and very versatile aesthetic. The Lambda is a simplistic Bauhaus-inspired timepiece that is a very real reflection of NOMOS Glashütte’s design language.
Bell & Ross BR 05 Blue Gold
The latest piece from Bell & Ross is the BR 05 Blue Gold. Clad in a rose gold case with navy-blue sunray dial, the BR 05 Blue Gold is a stunning proposition. It’s a reflection of one of Bell & Ross’ most iconic timepieces but in a way that really emphasises the perception of luxury and exclusivity. Outstanding stuff.
Omega Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary
Omega’ Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary is a celebration of the Maison’s affinity with the vacuum of space. In 1970, Omega received the “Silver Snoopy Award” from NASA, recognising the brand’s contributions to space exploration as well as the support that the infamous Speedmaster had during the rescue of Apollo 13. And 50 years later we have the Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary, a beautiful piece with blue dial highlights and the infamous Snoopy caricature in the small-second sub-dial. This is not a limited edition piece but we all expect the Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary to be very well received by collectors and enthusiasts alike.
