Another week has come and gone, which inevitably means another round up of all the latest watch releases in our regular series, the Wind Up. In this week’s edition, we’ll be featuring some new watches from Leica, Czapek & Cie and Baume & Mercier. Enjoy gents!
Leica Presents Two New Watches
Leica has unveiled two brand new watches, each model with a patented push crown. The design of the LEICA L1 and LEICA L2 draws inspiration from engineering masterpieces from yesteryear, with the watches’ exteriors conceptualised by Professor Achim Heine, the designer of numerous Leica products in the past. Seriously cool stuff.
Baume & Mercier Hampton “Hommage à Pierre Soulages”
Baume & Mercier presents the new Hampton “Hommage à Pierre Soulages” as its latest timepiece. The Baume & Mercier Hampton “Hommage à Pierre Soulages” features an aesthetic inspired by the work of Pierre Soulages, an esteemed master of modern art. The darkened aesthetic matches the art-inspired dial, altogether creating an elemental look that is as interesting as it is contemporary.
Czapek & Cie Antarctique Passage de Drake
New from Czapek & Cie are two fresh variations added to the Antarctique Passage de Drake collection. The first features a sharp and clean Glacier Blue dial, while the second has the ever-popular Salmon coloured dial. Both models are luxurious, supremely well finished and hold esteemed horological value thanks to the in-house automatic movement. So, so hard to pick!
Piaget Polo Skeleton x Diamonds
Piaget has emblazoned the already spectacular Polo Skeleton with an eye-watering display of diamonds, creating a spectacle that needs to be seen to be believed. With the white gold case and grey-finished openworked dial serving as the perfect backdrop, the new Polo Skeleton features 268 brilliant-cut diamonds on the case, and a whopping 1,478 brilliant-cut diamonds on the white gold integrated bracelet. The entire setting takes an incredible 61 hours to complete thanks to a unique savoir-faire where the diamonds are cut-to-measure before being set. A true testament to Piaget’s ode to combining haute horlogerie and haute joaillerie.
