Welcome to the next edition of The Wind Up, our weekly series where we highlight the latest watch releases of the past seven days. In this week’s column, we’ll be featuring new pieces from Richard Mille, TAG Heuer and Glashütte Original. Enjoy gents!
Richard Mille RM 21-01 Tourbillon Aerodyne
The combination of Carbon TPT and 5N red gold elevates an already supremely impressive package to new heights. Drawing engineering materials from the fields of aeronautics and Formula 1, the new Richard Mille RM 21-01 Tourbillon Aerodyne is a mechanical wonder whose aesthetic only works to enhance what is quite literally a spectacle of haute horlogerie.
TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial
TAG Heuer has released this new variation of the Monaco to celebrate the Grand Prix De Monaco Historique, where more than 200 Grand Prix cars representing 50 different car manufacturers and 21 countries come together for the biannual weekend of classic car mania. The new TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial has a beautiful green hue that is focused more so in the centre of the dial, with the outer areas of the dial darker in colour. All else is business as usual as far as the typical Monaco aesthetic is concerned. Green really is the new black.
Glashütte Original PanoMaticLunar
Now clad in a red gold case with a striking green dial, the new Glashütte Original PanoMaticLunar is an embodiment of the quintessentially unique asymmetrical look that the PanoMaticLunar has become so loved for. The thematic use of green extends to the leather strap too, and conversely as does the red gold of the case, where Glashütte Original has used the same material for the piece’s hands and hour markers. Supremely gorgeous.
Glashütte Original SeaQ
The second piece released from the Glashütte Original is the bi-colour variation of the SeaQ. Now clad in a stainless-steel and yellow gold case measuring 39.50mm in diameter, the new SeaQ marries the worlds of luxury and functionality in a balanced manner. Easy enough to dress up or down, the SeaQ has an air of exclusivity and understated beauty that is hard to deny, all the while presenting itself as a real-world tool watch.
