Tudor Black Bay Collection
Tudor’s Black Bay now also exists in a range of new sizes and dial colours: 32mm, 36mm and 41mm. With black and blue dial variations plus exquisite calfskin leather straps, and an attractive price point, this watch is certainly poised to dominate the market. There’s also a new champagne dial model for the Black Bay Steel & Gold that rounds up the collection nicely.
Breguet Classique Collection
Breguet has released two additions to the Classique family, the Classique Tourbillon Extra Plat with an exquisite grand feu enamel dial done for the first time in-house by the manufacture. The dial is off-centred not to provide space for the tourbillon but as a tribute to old Breguet watches from the past. Choose between platinum or pink gold for this piece. Also new is the Classique Extra Plat 38mm which is now available in pink gold.
Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Collection
Jaquet Droz continues to fuel our desire for metiers d’arts watches in the Petite Heure Minute line, featuring all-time-favourite techniques like miniature painting and relief hand-engraving. New to the scene is what they call Smalta Clara, also known as plique-a-jour enamel, where gold cloisons and clear enamel form a picture that has a stained glass window effect. The manufacture is also great with stone dials and this year they’ve used brecciated jasper in the Petite Heure Minute Dragon.
Patek Philippe World Time Minute Repeater
Patek Philippe once again stole the show with its great selection of grand complications, artisanal timepieces, and classic elegant models. The world time minute repeater ref. 5531 is the de facto talk of the town as it combines technical ingenuity with artisanal beauty. It is also the first minute repeater world timer to chime local time instead of home time. The manufacture also presented new grand complications like the perpetual calendar chronograph ref. 5270P in platinum with a gorgeous matte finish salmon dial, plus a new updated Golden Ellipse with black enamel dial and another with a hand-engraved black enamel dial.
