Welcome to the next round up of all the latest watch releases in our regular series, the Wind Up. In this week’s instalment, we’ll be featuring new watches from Panerai, Breitling and Parmigiani. Enjoy gents!
Panerai Luminor Marina Quaranta
Panerai has reinvented the wheel, as they say, with its latest piece: the Luminor Marina Quaranta. Now available in a 40mm case, the revived proportions expands the already super well spread appeal of the Luminor Marina, an entry point to the maison of Panerai. Available in three distinct dial executions, the Luminor Marina Quaranta has all of the tell-tale signs of a truly special entry-level watch.
Breitling Super AVI Collection Additions
Breitling’s popular Super AVI collection expands with some new and fresh models, each inspired by four legendary vintage aircraft. With names like the P-51 Mustang, the Curtiss Warhawk, the Vought F4U Corsair and the Mosquito, these new models all work well to capture the vintage aesthetic of these incredible aircraft. Horologically speaking, these models a chock-full of tech, including a chronograph and the always-useful GMT complication. My pick of the four would definitely be the P-51 Mustang. Love them all, though!
Parmigiani Fleurier Drop Its Latest Collection
To celebrate the manufacture’s 25th anniversary, Parmigiani Fleurier has unveiled the Tonda PF collection of watches. Featuring integrated bracelets and in-house movements, the new Tonda PF collection includes an assortment of complicated and non-complicated models, including an annual calendar, a chronograph, a time-only micro-rotor model as well as a split-seconds chronograph model. Definitely something for everyone here.
Girard-Perregaux Laureato Absolute Gold Fever
Girard-Perregaux continues to up the ante on its Laureato Absolute family of watches, this time with the novel Laureato Absolute Gold Fever. Encased in blacked-out titanium and highlighted by touches of pink gold, the Laureato Absolute Gold Fever cleverly balances both exotic materials. I particularly like how subtle it looks from afar, but up close with thanks to the macro shots there is an abundance of detailing and finishing throughout. The new Girard-Perregaux Laureato Absolute Gold Fever will be released in a limited run of only 188 pieces.
