Another week down, another round up of all the new watch releases of the past seven days. In this week's edition, I'll be highlighting some amazing new watches from the likes of Patek Philippe, Franck Muller and Girard-Perregaux. Enjoy!
Patek Philippe Blings Out The Grandmaster Chime
Patek Philippe dropped four new watches, including two incredible Grandmaster Chime models. The first is the 6300/400G, which features 406 baguette-cut diamonds, while the 6300/401G has 118 baguette-cut blue sapphires and 291 baguette-cut diamonds. Both models are powered by the 20-complication Caliber 300 GS AL 36‑750 QIS FUS IRM. The ultimate expression of haute horlogerie meeting haute joaillerie.
Patek Philippe Adds Two Colourful 5271P Models
Patek Philippe also expanded its 5271 line up, bringing to the fore the 5271/11P and the 5271/12P. Both models feature Patek's brilliant perpetual calendar and chronograph Caliber CH 29‑535 PS Q. The 5271/11P has a blue aesthetic with 80 blue baguette-cut sapphires, while the 5271/12P has 80 baguette-cut rubies. Both are obviously exquisite. Happy with either.
Verdict: Also un-freaking-real. Want both.
Franck Muller Drops Three New Chronographs
Franck Muller has unveiled three brand new chronographs, aptly named the Grail Watch 2:
Franck Muller 30th Anniversary "Tribute" Chronographs. Featuring new-old stock Lemania chronographs and a double-sided rattrapante, the new set of vintage-inspired chronographs are a nod to Franck Muller's rich and storied past.
Verdict: Fantastic stuff, absolutely love the bi- and tri-compax models.
Girard-Perregaux La Esmeralda Tourbillon "A Secret"
Girard-Perregaux continues on with its thematic approach to the illustrious La Esmeralda Tourbillon. Available in three new colour ways, the La Esmeralda Tourbillon "A Secret" is an exceptional timepiece that walks the fine line between masterful watchmaking and beautiful artisanship.
Verdict: Another reason why Girard-Perregaux really shouldn't be as slept on as it is.
