Welcome back to the Wind Up, our weekly series where we feature the latest watch releases of the past seven days. In this week’s edition, we’ll be featuring new watches from Bremont, Grand Seiko and Casio. Enjoy gents!
Bremont has released the limited edition Longitude, a tribute to Great Britain’s role in clock and watchmaking. Centuries ago, close to half of the world’s clocks and pocket watches were made in Great Britain, and so Bremont has ventured into the domain of manufacture watchmaking by incorporating a home-grown calibre into the Longitude. This new movement heralds in a new era of watchmaking for Bremont, giving it the ability to really elevate itself as a modern British horological institution. Awesome stuff.
Casio EDIFACE Honda Racing Championship White Edition
New from Casio EDIFACE is the Honda Racing Championship White Edition. Celebrating its collaboration with the Honda Racing team, Casio EDIFICE has released a limited edition model in the form of the Honda Racing Championship White Edition. With a sleek, sporty design, the Honda Racing Championship White Edition has plenty of modern-day tech to poise itself amongst even the toughest of competitors.
Grand Seiko GMT
Grand Seiko has introduced two new watches to the world. These models feature the super useful GMT function, with each model looking like a super functional and versatile travel watch. The first model comes with a khaki green dial, and the other with a deep blue dial. We’re torn between both, but if we had to choose I’d definitely be pulling the trigger on the blue model variant. Very cool.
Raymond Weil Maestro Automatic Open Heart
New from Raymond Weil is the salmon-coloured Maestro Automatic Open Heart. Featuring a stunning salmon-coloured dial offset by those lovely blued steel hands and Roman hour numerals, the focal point here is that open aperture at 12 o’clock. I really like the balance of the Maestro Automatic Open Heart, where there’s just enough going on in every part of the watch, but not so much to overwhelm. Well done, Raymond Weil.
