Welcome back to the Wind Up, our regular series where we feature the latest watch releases of the past week. In this week’s edition, we’ll be featuring new watches from the likes of Ressence, Bremont and IWC. Enjoy!
Bremont S500 Bamford Special Edition
Bremont has teamed up with fellow British company Bamford to create its latest piece, the S500 Bamford Special Edition. Made in a limited run of only 250 pieces, the new Bremont S500 Bamford Special Edition features an eclectic aesthetic made up of a typical California dial layout, DLC coating, blue Super-LumiNova and new stylised hands and indices. It’s an exciting piece that opens the door for more contemporary collaborative efforts between the two maisons, and it’s one that I am super fond of.
IWC Portofino Chronograph 39 Edition “Laureus Sport for Good”
IWC unveiled its latest piece, supporting the work of the charity organisation Laureus Sport for Good, which operates in over 50 countries and works to integrate sport into the transformation of the lives of children and young people. The IWC Portofino Chronograph 39 Edition “Laureus Sport for Good” is the 16th edition that the maison has released in collaboration with the charity, and features the signature “Laureus blue” dial and an inscription on the closed caseback designed by Jatin Malhan, the 15 year old goalkeeper for the Youth Football Club Rurka Kalan in the Jalandhar district of Punjab, India.
Ressence Type 1 REV
Ressence has partnered with the renowned designer Alain Silberstein to create the new Type 1 REV. Based on the Type 1 Slim titanium case construct and featuring the watchmaker’s Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS), the new Type 1 REV is an artistic take on some very revolutionary watchmaking. Alain Silberstein drew inspiration for his illustration from the Philippe de Champaigne’s 1646 “Vanitas” painting, creating a visual display of colours that will be sure to intrigue, especially as they dance around the ROCS dial.
Hardy Brothers Opens New Boutique In Sydney
Australia’s oldest jeweller and holder of the Royal Warrant has opened its newest store in Sydney. Located right in the middle of the city’s bustling CBD, the new address for the jeweller is 60 Castlereagh Street, one of the most prestigious shopping districts in Australia. Can’t wait to visit!
