Welcome to this week’s instalment of the Wind Up, our regular series where we cover all of the newest watch releases from around the world. In this week’s column, we’ll be featuring new watches from Greubel Forsey, Omega, Richard Mille and Breitling. Enjoy gents!
Greubel Forsey GMT Quadruple Tourbillon Titanium
From Greubel Forsey we have the latest rendition of its acclaimed and highly recognisable GMT Quadruple Tourbillon. For the first time clad in titanium, this new Greubel Forsey GMT Quadruple Tourbillon features striking blue accents throughout the dial, accentuated by the blue rubber strap. The GMT Quadruple Tourbillon Titanium has all of the tell-tale signs of a typical Greubel Forsey timepiece: drama, meticulously fine details, theatrics and an air of ambiguity. Pure brilliance.
Omega Seamaster Diver 300M America’s Cup Chronograph
New from Omega is the Seamaster Diver 300M America’s Cup Chronograph. With its unique colourway, the Seamaster Diver 300M America’s Cup Chronograph celebrates the America’s Cup Match and is a tribute to Omega’s role as the event’s official timekeeper. We really like the red accents throughout the watch which contrast beautifully with the blue dial, bezel and matching rubber strap. The Seamaster 300M’s well-known robustness is evident throughout, with the aesthetic touches rounding off what is a beautiful package through and through.
Richard Mille RM 07-01 Additions
Iconic watchmaker Richard Mille added two new models to its women’s collection of RM 07-01 timepieces: the RM 07-01 Automatic Starry Night, with its gem-set star motifs, and the RM 07-01 Automatic, with an openlink bracelet. Both nee additions highlight Carbon TPT, a high-performance material that Richard Mille claims ensures optimal protection of the movement. The surface offers a striking appearance of damascene patterns and a moiré sheen, with the matt aspect adding a new touch.
Breitling x Deus Ex Machina Top Time Deus Limited Edition
Breitling has just announced a brand new partnership with Deus Ex Machina, a company hellbent on recreating what they call “an era before the various pursuits of fun like motorcycling, surfing and skateboarding were marketed into fundamentalist factions”. The watch released to commemorate this historic partnership is the Top Time Deus Limited Edition which features yellow and orange details throughout, a lightning bolt shaped chronograph hand, square/circle shaped chronograph counters, Deus Ex Machina’s motto of “In benzin verita” and an image of a retro-stylised motorcyclist by Deus’ creative direction Carby Tuckwell engraved on the caseback. Hardcore!
Richard Mille Announces New Partnership With Ferrari
Ferrari has joined forces with Richard Mille in what is to be one of the most exciting motorsport-cross-horological partnerships in recent times. Like Roger Dubuis with Lamborghini and IWC with Mercedes Benz, the Richard Mille-Ferrari partnership will mean incredible special editions focused on marrying the worlds of motorsports and haute horology. Can’t wait to see what Richard Mille will unveil to commemorate this historic partnership.
