Welcome to the next instalment of The Wind Up, our weekly series where we highlight the newest watch releases of the past seven days. In this week’s edition, we’ll be featuring new watches from Hublot, Urwerk, Tudor and Richard Mille. Enjoy gents!
Hublot Big Bang SORAI II
Renewing its commitment to rhino conservation, Hublot has released the Big Bang SORAI II. Modelled after the rhino’s natural habitat, the Big Bang SORAI II is embellished with a green facade including a green ceramic case and a green camouflage rubber or velcro strap. Powering the limited 100-piece Big Bang SORAI II is a UNICO manufacture movement. Awesome stuff.
URWERK UR-105 TTH
URWERK has unveiled the final version of its acclaimed and instantly identifiable UR-105 with the UR-105 TTH. This final edition features a stunning tantalum case but with the material being so difficult that URWERK’s team of watchmakers refused to work with it again due to it literally “eating” their CNC machines, the UR-105 TTH certainly has the appeal of being a rare bird.
Tudor Black Bay Ceramic
Tudor has upped its game once again, this time enhancing and building upon its Black Bay range. For the first time in a production Black Bay model, Tudor has unveiled a full ceramic version. If that wasn’t enough already, then this might do the trick. The new Tudor Black Bay Ceramic features an in-house METAS certified movement. Sold.
Richard Mille Unveils Two New In-House Tourbillons
Richard Mille is continuing its pursuit of an integrated manufacture with two new pieces featuring in-house automatic tourbillon movements. The two new models are the RM 74-01 and the RM 74-02. The RM 74-01 features a grey Cermet case, while the RM 74-02 has a Gold Carbon TPT. The latter is definitely my pick of the two. The former is powered by the CRMT6 while the RM 74-02 is powered by the CRMT5. One for each wrist, did you say?
Bell & Ross Sets Up Shop in Tokyo
Bell & Ross is expanding, with its latest boutique opening up right in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, Ginza. Each of Bell & Ross’ themed collections are viewable in the boutique, including its aviation, driver, F1 and urban-inspired collections. Definitely worth the visit if you’re ever in the area!
