Welcome to the next instalment of our weekly series where we feature some of the latest watch releases of the past seven days, the Wind Up. In this week’s round-up we’ll be featuring new pieces from the likes of H. Moser & Cie, Chopard and Ressence. Enjoy gents!
H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon
H. Moser & Cie has kicked 2021 off with the biggest of bangs with its latest and greatest, the supreme Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon. This is an extraordinarily complicated timepiece, encompassing a minute repeater with a double hairspring tourbillon. We love the exposed minute repeater gongs on the dial side, along with the enormous tourbillon at the bottom of the dial. Crafted in titanium and featuring an Electric Blue dial, the Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon is a pioneering timepiece that really hammers home the fact that H. Moser & Cie are a true player in the haute horlogerie game.
Chopard L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Ox
Chopard has released its own celebratory piece to commemorate the initiation of the Chinese Year of the Ox in the form of the L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Ox. Featuring a Urushi-lacquered dial, the L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Ox depicts the symbolic animal in a scene pulling a carriage. The Ox symbolises harvesting and wisdom, a theme carried throughout the Chopard L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Ox.
Ressence Type 1 Squared X
The Type 1 Squared X is the fourth and final 10th-anniversary piece in the Ressence collection X. It features a beautiful olive-green dial with touches of light green and yellow, along with a patented system which represents a moment in a day by a mix of colours. The Type 1 Squared X contains 48 ceramic micro-balls from four different colours, but only shows a maximum of three colours at once to enhance legibility and to focus on the speed and ease of reading the time.
Richard Mille RM 037
From Richard Mille we have the RM 037. Now clad in white ceramic, the RM 037 All White Ceramic features mother-of-pearl and white gold throughout, emphasising its beautiful feminine traits. The RM 037 All White Ceramic is a highly perplexing timepiece that balances aesthetics with complex mechanics, as do all of Richard Mille’s timepieces. The sticker price for the RM 037 All White Ceramic is an eye-watering USD$180,000.
