Welcome back to The Wind Up, our weekly series where we feature the newest watches of the past seven days. In this week’s edition, we’ll be highlighting new watches from Bell & Ross, Breitling and Ulysse Nardin. Enjoy gents!
Breitling Super Chronomat
Breitling has unveiled the most beefed-up version of its reinvigorated Chronomat, aptly named the Super Chronomat. Sitting in a 44mm wide case, the Super Chronomat is made up of two distinct models. The first is the Super Chronomat B01 44. Available in either a steel or red gold case, the Super Chronomat B01 44 carries on the collection’s distinct aesthetic. It’s available on either stainless steel, red gold or rubber strap, along with a stainless steel bracelet with a UTC module. The second model is the Super Chronomat 44 Four-Year Calendar. This would definitely be my pick of the two new pieces. Powered by the Caliber 19, the Super Chronomat 44 Four-Year Calendar features a chronograph and a four-year calendar function (but it doesn’t take into account leap years). Exciting stuff!
Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Military
Bell & Ross has continued its military-esque theme with the new BR 03-92 Diver Military. Mirroring the colours of the military, the BR 03-92 Diver Military carries on the spirited square-shaped case that Bell & Ross has become known for. Legibility was a key component of the BR 03-92 Diver Military, where the olive drab dial acts as the perfect backdrop for readability at any time of the day.
Ulysse Nardin Freak X Razzle Dazzle
Featuring a geometrical pattern on its already extraordinarily riveting dial, the new Ulysse Nardin Freak X Razzle Dazzle is indeed a captivating package. The dancing carousel pirouettes its way around the hypnotic dial, creating drama at every turn. As far as optical illusions go, it doesn’t get much more exciting than the Ulysse Nardin Freak X Razzle Dazzle.
Louie Erard Guilloché Main
New from Louie Erard is the Guilloché Main. Featuring a hand guilloché dial done by Fehr & Cie SA in Switzerland, the Louie Erard Guilloché Main is a wonderful take on utilising geometrical patterns to create optical illusions. Clearly, the focus here is on the dial, with minimal interruption aside from the hour and minute hands and Louie Erard’s signature.
