This year has been absolutely massive in terms of new watch releases, with a seemingly unrelenting onslaught of new releases and unveilings dropping every week. I thought it prudent to give you a quick run down on some of the latest watches released so far in 2022, all of which you can actually buy. I'll be featuring watches like Glashütte Original's new SeaQ Chronograph, one of Breitling's fantastic Superocean 42 models, the brilliant little Longines Master Collection 190th Anniversary Edition and Zenith's historically significant Chronomaster Original El Primero.
Glashütte Original SeaQ Chronograph
The Glashütte Original SeaQ Chronograph is the first diver's chronograph from the Glashütte-based watchmaker. It features a distinct layout with an oversized date window at the bottom of the dial, along with the utilitarian practicality of a traditional diver's watch.
Tissot Heritage Telemeter 1938
A captivating combination of old-world vintage chronograph charm coupled with an upgraded contemporary ebauche movement and a very appealing price point makes the Tissot Heritage Telemeter 1938 a winner on all fronts.
NOMOS Glashütte Club Campus
The NOMOS Glashütte Club Campus is just one of those watches that you can't not like. It's so well put together, beautifully designed, soundly finished and features a price tag not that dissimilar to something akin to being the bargain of the century.
Breitling Superocean 42 Kelly Slater
With its bright orange dial, creamy coloured outer dial, black bezel, green strap and bold hands, the Breitling Superocean 42 Kelly Slater is a big, brash and completely enthralling timepiece from a watchmaker that is experiencing one of the biggest resurgences of the past decade.
Longines Record Automatic
Like the Tissot Heritage Telemeter 1938, the Longines Record Automatic is a vintage inspired affair that brings together the charm of the old world with updated technologies and chronometrical performance.
Omega Speedmaster Time On Mars
The extraterrestrial that is the Omega Speedmaster Time On Mars is a fitting tribute to the anticipation of the next giant leap. The Omega Speedmaster Time On Mars, also known as the Marstimer, is an interesting watch that has a thermo-compensated quartz movement that tracks Mars' sol date and time at the prime meridian, allowing for the fact that a day on Mars is 39 minutes longer than on Earth.
Zenith Chronomaster Original El Primero
This Watches of Switzerland Group exclusive is limited to only 100 pieces and definitely sits at the top of this list of being the rarest watch here. The Zenith Chronomaster Original El Primero is an icon of watchmaking history, and it's a piece that belongs in everyone's collection.
Seiko Presage Style 60s 'Ruby'
Perhaps the most affordable watch on this list is the Seiko Presage Style 60s 'Ruby'. With its funky retro-vintage 1960s look, the Seiko Presage Style 60s 'Ruby' has a compelling aesthetic that is as unique as it is fun.
Longines Master Collection 190th Anniversary Edition
Last but most definitely not least is the Longines Master Collection 190th Anniversary Edition. Engraved hour numerals, blued steel hands and a lovely sandblasted silver dial make for one of 2022's best watches, hands down.
