Omega and Swatch both value history and classics, so it’s not surprising that their new release would be true to their core values. Omega gave a golden twist to the new shiny MoonSwatch. This time the Mission To The Moon features a second hand made of Omega’s exclusive Moonshine Gold, an 18ct yellow gold alloy. The watch has given a subtle but impactful dash of gold against the black backdrop, reserving ultimate grace.
Panerai released the new Submersible S Brabus Verde Militare Edition watch in only 200 pieces. In collaboration with Brabus, the brand has completely reimagined the design to offer an exceptional experience, and the watch exhibits many impressive features. It has a skeletonised dial structure with military green hands that can never go out of style, a large 47mm case, an anti-clockwise rotating bezel and two alternating straps, a military green rubber and a bi-material version in black.
Cartier has updated one of its most iconic creations, the Tank Francaise. In 1996, the Francaise introduced a metal bracelet to the Tank line, and even though the new Tank Francaise resembles the old version from a distance, the details endorse a more modern vibe. For example, the cases are larger; the dial has applied numerals; a recessed crown is integrated into the case, etc. It is available in 18ct yellow gold or steel models, with the gold model having a champagne dial and the steel with a silver dial.
For the first time, Tag Heuer has produced a fully solar-powered watch with the new calibre TH50-00. The Solargraph is powered entirely by light-be it, natural or artificial. The 40mm piece is made of titanium and feels incredibly light on the wrist. It looks super chic in the dark when the bezel made of carbon and green Super-Luminova illuminates. Sporting a water resistance of 200m, it is the perfect companion for any outdoor activity.
Limited to only 350 pieces, Breitling has given a worthy tribute to the airforce with the new Breitling Airforce Red Arrows. While it delivers features similar to the 1985 Aerospace watch, the new piece is equipped with a SuperQuartz calibre, a second-time zone and a titanium case whose crown-activated functions include a 1/100th of a second chronograph. This is perhaps the only watch authorised by the RAF to use the exclusive emblem of their celebrated aerobatics team.
The ultra-chic A.Lange & Sohne 1815 Rattrapante is a limited edition model available in 200 platinum pieces. The watch encloses one of Lange’s most elegant complications and is also the brand’s first pure splits-seconds chronograph. The precious platinum case measures 41.2mm, and the argenté-coloured dial with blued hands perfectly complements the elegance. Lange produces approximately 5000 timepieces a year, so when it releases a limited edition, it surely is.
Audemars Piguet has a long-standing connection with the music industry. The new Royal Oak Offshore celebrates the same with a Tapisserie dial reflecting on the motifs of an equaliser, crown guards resembling the faders on mixing consoles and knurled textured studs indicative of jack plugs. Overall the watch radiates a pop-style appearance. With its new release, AP has well-established that music and timekeeping can go hand-in-hand. Avail of them in 37mm and 43mm in different materials.
