Breguet Classique Calendar 7337

New from Breguet is the Classique Calendar 7337 in both white and rose gold. The Classique Calendar 7337 is an ode to Breguet’s dial-making prowess, with a variety of finishings applied like Clous de Paris guilloché, circular graining, hand-hammering and fine sandblasting. The final product here is an absolute feast for the senses and is completely and unapologetically Breguet.

Pay close attention to the lovely synergistic dial layout. It’s clear, refined and super legible, laden with information but designed to be effortlessly easy to read. In white gold, it’s a beautifully subtle and sophisticated dress watch that you can pair with a t-shirt and jeans. In rose gold, it transforms the piece into a stunning eye-catching dress watch whose details truly are second to none. A wonderful offering from Breguet.

H. Moser & Cie Streamliner Tourbillon

From H. Moser & Cie we have the epic Streamliner Tourbillon. The Streamliner heralded in a new and exciting venture for H. Moser & Cie. With its integrated bracelet and distinct design, the Streamliner really opened the door for the maison to flex its creative might. And now in its latest variation, the Streamliner Tourbillon, Moser has definitely outdone itself.

Featuring a Vantablack dial (which absorbs over 99% of light) surrounded by a warm red gold case and matching integrated bracelet, the H. Moser & Cie Streamliner Tourbillon already elevated itself into the realm of brilliance. But add to that winning formula a double-hairspring one-minute flying tourbillon, and what you get is a bona fide piece of independent haute horlogerie. Just superb from the team at H. Moser & Cie.

Swatch x Dragon Ball Z

Man, do I love Dragon Ball Z. I remember watching it avidly on Cheez TV before my mum would yell all sorts of obscenities at me because it would almost always make me late to school. Remember when Goku turned Super Saiyan?! To this day that remains one of the most important, most life-changing and most defining moments of my life!
Swatch has just released a collection of Dragon Ball Z watches, playing on that childhood nostalgia (ngl, I still watch DBZ to this day…). The collection reimagines some of the most iconic characters like Goku, Vegeta, Majin Buu, Frieza and Cell into these super-fun and affordable watches. And each piece features an element of its inspired character on both the front and the back of the watch. Super cool and super fun.

Reference Number: S- (depending on the model you choose)
Diameter: 40mm

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT

TAG Heuer has unveiled its latest expansion to the Aquaracer collection, this time with the Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT. A fresh take on the quintessential traveller’s watch, the Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT is a modern and stylish take on what really is one of the most popular complications in the world.
I love its subtle details, colour palette and dial highlights. I really like the two-toned bezel which really adds an interesting visceral element to the piece. There’s also the benefit of having an automatic movement powering the Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT, as well as the option of either having a stainless steel bracelet or a very nice deep midnight blue rubber strap which matches the watch’s aesthetic. My pick definitely.
Brand: TAG Heuer
Model: Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT

Diameter: 43mm

Panerai Luminor BiTempo PAM01361

Panerai dropped its latest and greatest with the new Luminor BiTempo PAM01361. The PAM01361 is one interesting bit of tech-laden kit, and is made up of a GMT complication, a power reserve indicator and a larger than normal date window. All of this is encased in 44mm of Panerai’s most iconic design, the Luminor case. I really like the aesthetic of the Panerai Luminor BiTempo PAM01361. Its blue-coloured theme extends from the lovely gleaming dial to the lighter blue highlights on the GMT and power reserve hands. All of this capped off with a bold look from Panerai’s infamous sandwich dial.

Brand: Panerai

Reference Number: PAM01361
Diameter: 44mm
