Another week down, another round up of all the latest watch releases in our regular series, the Wind Up. In this week’s edition, we’ll be covering new watches from Breguet, Girard-Perregaux and Vacheron Constantin. Enjoy gents!
HUBLOT Big Bang Integral Blue Ceramic
The masters of avant-garde have come back with another stunning timepiece. This time around, HUBLOT has bolstered the Big Bang with the HUB1280 UNICO Manufacture Self-winding Chronograph Flyback Movement. Set in a piercing polished blue ceramic, the new piece looks every bit a modern classic and at 42mm, it fits perfectly in the sweet spot. The new HUBLOT Big Bang Integral Blue Ceramic is available now and is priced at AUD$32,000.
Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Anniversaire 5365
Celebrating 220 years since the Abraham-Louis Breguet finalised his patent in Paris for his “watch compensating for all of the inequalities that may be found in the balance wheel and mainspring”, Breguet has unveiled its latest masterpiece of complexity, the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Anniversaire 5365. Clad in gold and featuring an impeccably detailed dial, the new Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Anniversaire 5365 is every bit suited to celebrate the innovation and pioneering spirit of the House of Breguet.
Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar
Vacheron Constantin’s illustrious Traditionnelle Complete Calendar is back, and it’s better than ever. Here it is encased in sumptuous white gold and a grey dial the new Traditionnelle Complete Calendar is a feast for the senses. From the triple-calendar view to the exposed (much to my delight) caseback showcasing that exquisite calibre 2460 QCL/1, the Traditionnelle Complete Calendar ticks all of the right boxes for a true haute horlogerie calendar timepiece.
Girard-Perregaux Laureato Chronograph Aston Martin Edition
From Girard-Perregaux we have the new Laureato Chronograph Aston Martin Edition. Celebrating the partnership between the two powerhouse brands, the new Laureato Chronograph Aston Martin Edition features a stunning green dial with distinct plays at shapes, textures and lighting. The exposed case back rounds off another superb addition to the ever-expanding Laureato collection.
Romain Gauthier Continuum
Contemporary, avant-garde, sporty and a dash maddening, the new Continuum is in stark contrast to the other releases from the independent watchmaker. I love its modern sporty look, the touches of red, the off-centre crown, the use of titanium for the case, that grey rubber band and that delicious calibre. Refined, clean and super brash, the Continuum is a delight from every angle.
