The week that was featured quite the selection of new releases that really caught my eye. With new watches from Breguet, Ulysse Nardin and H. Moser & Cie, the week was full of interest and intrigue. Enjoy!
Ulysse Nardin The Ocean Race Diver
Ulysse Nardin has unveiled its latest timepiece in partnership with The Ocean Race, a shared commitment that pledges the protection of the ocean and the start of the countdown of more positive oceanic protection results by 2030. The Ocean Race Diver features a case made with recycled stainless steel components, Carbonium and a polyamide recycled from fishing nets. The strap is made from 100% recycled fishing nets, while the package it comes in is made from recycled plastic from the ocean.
H. Moser & Cie's New Haute Horlogerie Endeavour
The Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon is back and it's better than ever. Now featuring a stunning red gold or titanium case, the new Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue features a beautiful Grand Feu Aqua Blue fumé enamel dial with a hammered texture, giving the H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon Aqua Blue a very distinct look. The marvel here is of course the HMC 904 calibre, comprised of a one-minute flying tourbillon and a minute repeater with gongs placed on the dial. Another supreme effort of contemporary haute horlogerie from one of my favourite independent watchmakers.
Breguet Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597 Regal
New from Breguet is the Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597 Regal. Featuring a subtle monochome blue applied to the dial which contrasts really well with the anthracite-clad movement, the new Breguet Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597 Regal has a blue retrograde date indicator in the bottom hemisphere of the dial along with a blue dial centered at 12 o'clock. Brilliant stuff from Breguet as usual.
Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Samuel Ross
And from Hublot we have the new Big Bang Tourbillon Samuel Ross. Working in unison with Hublot ambassador and creative director Samuel Ross comes the unique-looking Big bang Tourbillon Samuel Ross. This partnership was commemorated by the REFORM, a sculpture created to encapsulate the 40 years of Hublot made from a combination of granite and steel. And now Hublot has recreated the 40cm sculpture into the new 44mm Big Bang Tourbillon Samuel Ross. Stylised with a titanium honeycomb mesh, the iconic hexagonal shape of the Big Bang and pops of orange throughout, the Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Samuel Ross is a striking complex of complicated high watchmaking, contemporary materials and avant-garde design.
