Another week down, another edition of our weekly series where we feature the latest watch related news and stories in The Wind Up. In this week’s instalment, we’ll be covering new watches from Girard-Perregaux, Shinola, Jaquet Droz and Breitling. Enjoy gents!
Girard-Perregaux Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges Aston Martin Edition
From Girard-Perregaux we have the first piece to celebrate its partnership with Aston Martin in the Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges Aston Martin Edition. Featuring the iconic three flying bridge tourbillon movement architecture, the new Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges Aston Martin Edition is a dramatic and altogether awesome timepiece that opens the door to more exciting motorsport-inspired watches.
Shinola Sea Creatures Detrola Collection
Shinola releases its latest and greatest to commemorate World Ocean Day with the new Sea Creatures Detrola Collection. Made from 100% ocean-bound plastic waste, the new Sea Creatures Detrola Collection is available in a variety of colour and strap options and is the brand’s first foray into the world of recycled goods.
Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Moon Anniversary Edition
Jaquet Droz continues its pursuit for aesthetic perfection with the new Grande Seconde Moon Anniversary Edition all the while celebrating the birth of its watchmaking founder of 300 years ago. Two new editions were released, one that explores the traditions of the watchmaker and the other that explores the maison’s modern inspirations. Both are inexplicably delicate and exquisite.
Breitling Avenger Automatic GMT 45
From Breitling we have the new Avenger Automatic GMT 45. The perfect globetrotting adventurer’s watch, the new Automatic GMT 45 is a robust, bold, durable and highly life-proof watch more than suited for the best and the worst that the world can throw at it. I love the subtle touches throughout, like the khaki green dial and matching strap and that delightful yellow GMT hand. Very cool.
Baume & Mercier Riviera Green
Baume & Mercier has offered its stainless steel sports piece in a vivid green look very much in-keeping with what the watch world seems to be demanding. We love the shade of green Baume & Mercier has utilised with the new Riviera, especially so enhanced by that beautiful textured dial. Versatile, contemporary, relevant and undoubtedly gorgeous. And super budget-friendly.
