Another week down, another round up of all the latest watch news in the Wind Up. In this week’s edition, we’ll be featuring new watches from H. Moser & Cie, Ressence and Chronoswiss. Enjoy gents!
H. Moser & Cie Heritage Bronze “Since 1828”
New from one of my favourite independent watchmakers is the Heritage Bronze “Since 1828”. Featuring a stunning Blackor fumé dial, a bronze case and H. Moser & Cie’s Cyrillic logo, the new Heritage Bronze “Since 1828” is a delightful vintage-inspired timepiece that marries the worlds of watchmaking from yesteryear and current horology.
Ressence Type 1 DX2
To celebrate its partnership with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, Ressence has unveiled the limited edition Type 1 DX2. Drawing inspiration from Arabic geometric patterns, the new Type 1 DX2 features a captivating dial that works well to celebrate the United Arab Emirates 50th year anniversary.
Chronoswiss Open Gear ReSec Jungle
Another avant-garde piece, this time from Chronoswiss in the form of the new Open Gear ReSec Jungle. Inspired by the blue hour in a tropical jungle, the new Open Gear ReSec Jungle features vivid colours including lush greens, silver blues and shadowy blacks.
Urwerk UR-110V Full Titanium Jacket
Urwerk has unveiled its immense UR-110V Full Titanium Jacket. Entirely encased in titanium with a custom-designed metal bracelet, the new UR-110V Full Titanium Jacket is a brilliant bit of kit that works upon the notion of a monochromatic aesthetic — except this time it actually works with the overall look of the watch. Brilliant stuff.
Zenith Limited Edition DEFY Zero-G and Defy Double Tourbillon
Zenith has unveiled two new pieces to the iconic Defy range. Firstly, the DEFY Zero-G Sapphire cops a new off-centred dial and is handcrafted in a mosaic of meteorite, aventurine glass and grand feu enamel on a gold base. According to Zenith, it depicts the red planet Mars on the small seconds, partially eclipsed by the hour and minute dial. The DEFY 21 Double Tourbillon Sapphire, on the other hand, is a nod to the universe and space exploration. In a cool move, some of the dial-side bridges are engraved with stars. Both truly exquisite pieces.
Piaget Launches Sydney Boutique
Swiss luxury watchmaker, Piaget, opened a new boutique in the heart of Sydney this week, joining the esteemed Westfield precinct. Inspired by the maison’s first historical salon, the new outlet features Paiget’s classic gold, white coral red colour palette, alongside the iconic Piaget Blue.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Ascentier on this new Piaget Salon that will play a major role in the expansion of our brand identity in the Australian market,” Gaspard Barthelemy , brand manager, Piaget Australia said. “This execution of the interior and exterior design pays homage to the Maison’s foundation of generous and festive values that we know will be welcomed with open arms by Sydney residents.”
