Watches of the Week: 09/08/2021 - 15/08/2021


Welcome to the next edition of Watches of the Week. This week was a quiet one, with only a handful of new releases being unveiled to the world. But what this week's edition might lack in quantity it more than makes up for in quality, with new pieces from Laurent Ferrier, Bovet and G-Shock being unveiled. Enjoy!


You can check out last week's releases here.


Bovet Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two Reimagined DLC-SLN

New from Bovet is the new Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two Reimagined DLC-SLN. Crafted in a DLC-coated titanium case, the new Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two Reimagined DLC-SLN is a darker, more ominous yet wholly interesting variation on what has quickly become a staple for Bovet. It features the in-house made, manually wound calibre 17BM06-GD made up of 356 components which includes a flying tourbillon. The Bovet Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two Reimagined DLC-SLN is available with a variety of coloured Super Luminova dials sitting atop the rest of the openworked dial and is priced at 200,000CHF.


Laurent Ferrier Square California

From one of my favourite independent watchmakers comes the maison's latest piece in the shape of the Square California, no pun intended. Laurent Ferrier's Square California features a sunburst blue dial with a white railway minute track along with the quintessential font-layout of a typical California-stylised dial, with Roman numerals sitting in the top hemisphere of the dial, and Arabic numerals sitting in the bottom hemisphere. Limited to only 11 pieces, the new Laurent Ferrier Square California is priced at $48,000USD.


G-Shock GA2200

And from G-Shock we have the new GA2200. Available in a variety of poppy colours including orange and turquoise, the new GA2200 is the brand's newest entry-level model. It features G-Shock's signature Carbon Core Guard Structure, ensuring rigidity and internal hardness, along with all of the technical bells and whistles we've come to expect from a G-Shock.
