Watches Of The Week: 04/03/2024 - 10/03/2024



The week that was featured some very cool pieces from the likes of MB&F and Blancpain. This week is no different, with new watches from Audemars Piguet, Omega and Seiko all headlining.


Enjoy.



New Audemars Piguet Releases 



Audemars Piguet quietly released a handful of new watches that included additions to the Royal Oak, the Royal Oak Offshore and the Code 11.59 collections. New watches included a "sand gold" Royal Oak Flying Tourbillon Openworked, a white gold 37mm Royal Oak Flying Tourbillon Extra-Thin RD#3 with a diamond encrusted bezel, a new Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar made in collaboration with John Mayer, a Royal Oak Offshore with a rubber bezel as well as seven new Code 11.59 references, with changes made in sizes, materials, colours and complications. My pick is that beautiful "sand gold" Royal Oak Flying Tourbillon Openworked, of course.



Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional



Now with a white dial, the iconic Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional is a celebration of the contemporary approach of the maison to its most iconic timepiece. The white dial is, of course, the mainstay here. It features a lacquered finish that gives it a smooth and glossy surface, while everything is stock standard, per se. The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional perhaps is best known amongst our fellow watch peers for that brilliant Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibre 3861, the latest generation movement to feature in a Moonwatch, and fortunately we are still able to see it through the open sapphire caseback. A refreshing take on what is ultimately one of the most important watches ever made.

Seiko Prospex 1965 Heritage Diver's Watch



With a new movement in what is fundamentally case size well below what we have to expect from a 300m-rated diver's watch, the new Seiko Prospex 1965 Heritage is, in a word, brilliant. It's a highly legible piece, with a discreetly placed date window (with a dial-matched background) in a very compact case. For the first time in a Prospex model, Seiko have incorporated the calibre 6R55, the latest generation of automatic movements for Seiko's mid-range pieces.
