Another week down, another round up of all the new watch releases in our regular series, Watches of the Week. In this week's instalment, we'll be featuring new watches from the likes of TAG Heuer, HYT and Urwerk. Enjoy! You can check out last week's releases here.
TAG Heuer Carrera Elegant Collection
TAG Heuer has added another collection to the Carrera family, the Carrera Elegant collection. Carrying the virtues of a classical dress watch that you can wear casually, the Carrera Elegant collection is made up of two references, one with either a blue, black or anthracite dial and the other with a silver dial and rose gold dial details. Both models will be encased in 42mm of stainless steel and both will feature a horizontally oriented chronograph dial layout. Pricing for the Carrera Elegant will begin at $7,700AUD.
HYT continues in its namesake, this time with the FLOW. Limited to only 25 pieces, the HYT FLOW features a dome of 73 baguette-cut diamonds lit up by 13 mechanically-powered LEDs lying below it. HYT's pioneering approach to watchmaking is all but apparent with the FLOW, where the combination of fluid mechanics and electricity meet to create what is an extraordinary spectacle. The HYT FLOW is priced at 149,000CHF.
Urwerk UR-220 Falcon Project
Made from carbon composed of 81 layers of high-resistance CTP carbon compressed into a hard resin, the Urwerk UR-220 Falcon Project from the outset is striking. Urwerk's patented and instantly recognisable use of a satellite display continues on with the UR-220 Falcon Project. Urwerk has integrated its hand-wound calibre UR-7.20 into the UR-220 Falcon Project, featuring a 3D retrograde minutes hand, double power reserve indicator, oil change indicator on the back showing the accumulated running time of the movement in months and a power reserve of 48-hours. The Urwerk UR-220 Falcon Project is available now and will be priced at 145,000CHF
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Superbia
Roger Dubuis knows excess. Excess in complications. Excess in materials. Excess everywhere. But I think that the new Excalibur Superbia takes the cake as being the most excessive excess from the brand to date. Featuring a 45mm wide by 14.40mm thick white gold case, the Excalibur Superbia is covered in 600 diamonds and sapphires, all of course set by hand. Being a Roger Dubuis, the Excalibur Superbia is no slouch in the movement department either. It features an in-house manufactured double tourbillon movement, too. Walking the walk. Talking the talk. At a cost of $858,500USD, mind you.
