In this week's feature, I'll be taking a look at a range of new watches, including some two-tone Omega Speedmasters, a super cool retro take on affordable watchmaking, and let's not forget Rolex's billion-dollar expansion project, either.


Happy reading, have a great week ahead.

Omega Unveils Two Speedmaster Two-Tone References






Omega has announced two two-tone references set to join the Speedmaster collective. The first model features an 18k Moonshine yellow gold two-tone aesthetic paired with the conventional stainless steel case material, along with a brushed silvery-white dial, gold-toned sub-dials as well as indices, hands and the Omega logo in 18k Moonshine yellow gold. The second is the 18k Sedna pink gold two-tone model, which has a Sedna gold dial offset by black counters and matching Sedna gold hands, indices and logo. Pricing for both references is USD18,100 with the new models set to be released this month at Omega boutiques and retailers.


Anoma A1 First Series






  • Brand: Anoma

  • Model: A1 First Series

  • Reference: -

  • Case: 39mm x 38mm

Anoma's inaugural watch, the A1 First Series, offers a unique take on 1950s geometric design, inspired by a triangular table from Charlotte Perriand. This microbrand diverges from typical vintage reproductions by emphasizing clean, asymmetrical aesthetics. The A1 features a polished stainless steel case, the ever-ready Sellita SW100 movement, and a blue two-tone dial. The A1 is available for pre-order until July 6, 2024, for £1,300 with delivery expected in January 2025. The A1 First Series is a fantastically unique, budget-friendly and relatively uncompromising timepiece that follows suit of some other very obscure and unconventional new releases.


Rolex's Solution To Its Supply Vs. Demand Issues






Rolex has announced plans to build a new factory in Bulle, Switzerland, aiming to boost its production capacity to meet increasing global demand. This expansion is part of a billion-dollar project revealed in 2022, with the new facility expected to be operational by 2029. This strategic move underscores Rolex's commitment to maintaining its position as a leading luxury watchmaker amid rising demand for its timepieces​
