Welcome to the next Wind Up, our regular instalment where we feature the latest watch releases of the past weeks. In this week’s edition, we’ll be featuring new watches from Blancpain, Audemars Piguet and Angelus. Enjoy gents!
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon
Audemars Piguet has introduced six new Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon models. These new models include pieces in white or pink gold, each with a stunning array of coloured gemstones and diamonds. There are four models set with brilliant-cut gemstones, and two baguette-cut versions. Did someone say bling-bling?
Angelus has unveiled its latest piece, a flying tourbillon watch that can be worn on your next diving adventure. The highly skeletonised U53 has a distinct khaki-green rubber strap, is powered by the Angelus A-300 and has a one-minute flying tourbillon. But despite its openworked stature, the Angelus U53’s propensity to be legible even deep in the ocean’s depths is unmatched thanks to the luminescent materials used on the hands and hour markers. Love it.
Blancpain Ladybird Colours
From Blancpain we have the new Blancpain Ladybird Colours. The new piece also marks the occasion where Blancpain officially renames its feminine watch collection to “Ladybird”, an ode to the maison’s pioneering role in the feminine watch industry. The LadyBird Colours is a beautiful timepiece, set with 59 diamonds on its mother-of-pearl dial, bezel, lugs and crown. The piece is available in both red and white gold and comes with an assortment of coloured alligator leather straps.
TAG Heuer x Ryan Gosling
TAG Heuer has partnered with the esteemed Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling to unveil its newest collection, the Three Hands collection. Interestingly enough, this is the first time the actor has ever endorsed a brand, so this is big news whichever way you want to look at it. The new collection is built around classical, no-nonsense watchmaking with an eye for a conservative-like style. The end result are a handful of brilliantly modern watches that pay homage to a bygone era of watchmaking.
