Another week down, another round-up of all the latest watches in our regular series, Watches of the Week! In this week's instalment we have new pieces from the likes of Audemars Piguet, Frederique Constant, Richard Mille and NOMOS Glashutte, along with a handful of other manufacturers. Enjoy!
HYT has released three unique variants of the H2.0 celebrating the Mexican culture. In September and October, HYT will be unveiling these special pieces at three separate Mexican exhibitions, with each exhibition embodying the tenets of what makes HYT such a special manufacturer. Contemporary. Flowing. Meaningful. Key values that encompass the brand's approach to utilising the flow of fluids to depict the passing of the time.
NOMOS Glashütte Tangente neomatik 39 x The Hour Glass
To celebrate The Hour Glass' 40th anniversary, NOMOS Glashütte has unveiled four very special versions of the acclaimed Tangente neomatik 39. There will be a silver, salmon, ruthenium and midnight blue dial version, each featuring ancient script hour numerals and each featuring the "Little Red Dot" at 12 o'clock, which actually represents Singapore's diversity and global reach.
Richard Mille RM 50-04 Tourbillon Split-Seconds Chronograph Kimi Raikkonen Limited Edition
Costing $1,063,000USD and limited to only 30 pieces, the RM 50-04 Tourbillon Split-Seconds Chronograph Kimi Raikkonen Limited Edition is the latest beast to come out of the Richard Mille atelier. Powered by the renowned Calibre RM50-03 featuring a split-seconds chronograph, a torque indicator and a tourbillon and a shock resistant rating of a whopping 5000G encased by 44.50mm of Quartz TPT and Carbon TPT, the RM 50-04 Tourbillon Split-Seconds Chronograph Kimi Raikkonen Limited Edition is anything but conventional.
Tudor Black Bay Chrono Dark
To celebrate its partnership and support with New Zealand's All Blacks, Tudor has released the Black Bay Chrono Dark, a limited variation of the highly popular Black Bay Chrono. Featuring a darkened theme throughout, the Black Bay Chrono Dark's black aesthetic is offset by the white hour indices and red dial highlights. Limited to only 1,181 pieces (which matches the number of players that have since played for the All Blacks) and priced at $5,925USD.
Frederique Constant Yacht Timer Regatta Countdown
New from Frederique Constant is the Yacht Timer Regatta Countdown, a beautiful rendition on what is one of the more romantic complications of watchmaking. Available in either a stainless steel or rose gold plated steel case with either a grey or navy blue dial, the Yacht Timer Regatta Countdown couples a very fun and very cool complication in an otherwise very traditional and classical looking package. Priced from $3,195 the Yacht Timer Regatta Countdown is available now.
Audemars Piguet Millenary Frosted Gold Philosophique
New from Audemars Piguet is the Millenary Frosted Gold Philosophique. Available in either 18 white or pink gold with a hand-hammered frosted finish, the Millenary Frosted Gold Philosophique exhibits a luxe look that certainly rings true to Audemars Piguet’s walking-the-walk-and-talking-the-talk approach to watchmaking. Interestingly enough, the Millenary Frosted Gold Philosophique features only a single hand derived from the newly developed calibre 3140. In terms of superlative finishings, Audemars Piguet has long been one of my favourites, and the 3140 is certainly no exception. Both priced at $29,500USD and both only available at Audemars Piguet boutiques.
