Welcome back to The Wind Up, our weekly series where we highlight the latest watch releases of the past seven days. In this week’s round up we’ll be featuring a variety of new watches, including pieces from Bell & Ross, Audemars Piguet and Bremont. Enjoy gents!
Bell & Ross Vintage VR-94 FULL LUM
New from Bell & Ross is the VR-94 FULL LUM. Featuring a fully photoluminescent dial coated in Super-Luminova, the VR-94 FULL LUM offers incredible legibility regardless of the time of day or lighting environment. During the day the VR-94 FULL LUM is clean and quintessentially Bell & Ross, while at night the dial shines like a beacon of light. Perfect for those midnight snack runs to the fridge.
Timex x NN07 M79 Limited Edition
Timex has unveiled its latest collaborative timepiece, this time made in partnership with the Copenhagen-based menswear manufacturer NN07. Featuring a blue bezel offset with a black dial, the new Timex x NN07 M79 Limited Edition is the perfect blend of modernity and discreetness. We love the addition of the faux-patina hour markers and hands, along with the blue seconds hand. The Timex x NN07 M79 Limited Edition is strapped to a woven steel bracelet and is powered by the nifty Miyota 8205 automatic movement. Lot’s of bang for your buck here.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 43 Flyback Chronograph
Audemars Piguet has released its latest iteration of the acclaimed Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph. Each of the models features a “Méga Tapisserie” and is available in a variety of dial colours and case materials. And each of the models will be powered by the new in-house calibre 4401, a vertical clutch column wheel automatic chronograph movement. Our favourite of the lot would definitely be the grey-on-grey titanium model with blue sub-dials.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 43 Flying Tourbillon Flyback Chronograph
Another newbie from Audemars Piguet, this time in the form of the Royal Oak Offshore 43 Flying Tourbillon Flyback Chronograph. Innovative, futuristic-looking and completely infatuating, the Royal Oak Offshore 43 Flying Tourbillon Flyback Chronograph is encased in titanium and is powered by the calibre 2967, complete with a flying tourbillon and a flyback chronograph system. Hands up who wants one?!
Bremont Supermarine S302 GMT Diver
New from Bremont is the Supermarine S302 GMT Diver. Drawing upon the collection’s vintage look, the new Supermarine S302 GMT Diver has wonderful real-world functionality in a package that is as beautiful as it is subtle. I love the pronounced orange GMT hand, the robust dimensions of the Trip-Tick triple-layer steel case and the meticulous details throughout. We’re really loving what Bremont is doing these days.
