Hermès Slim d’Hermès Squelette Lune
From Hermès we have the new Slim d’Hermès Squelette Lune. Featuring a bead-blasted titanium case with a platinum bezel and white gold crown, the Slim d’Hermès Squelette Lune is a captivating affair. Add to that for the first time an in-house manfuacture openworked dial with a double moon phase offset by blued hands. The result is something that is truly beautiful.

Richard Mille RM 60-01 Regatta Les Voiles de St Barth
Richard Mille continues its support of the Les Voiles de St Barth by releasing the limited edition RM 60-01 Regatta Les Voiles de St Barth. Specifically designed for sailing regattas, the RM 60-01 Regatta Les Voiles de St Barth has a three-dimensional rotating bezel which shows the different cardinal points, enabling sailors to find their direction without the use of a compass. It also has the ability to orientate itself to both the northern and southern hemispheres. Safe to say that the Richard Mille RM 60-01 Regatta Les Voiles de St Barth is indeed a regatta sailor's best friend. Priced at $210,000USD and limited to 80 pieces.
Raymond Weil Maestro The Beatles Let it Be Limited Edition
From Raymond Weil we have the fourth maestro The Beatles timepiece in the Maestro The Beatles Let it Be Limited Edition. Limited to only 3,000 pieces, the Maestro The Beatles Let it Be Limited Edition is a tribute to Raymond Weil's musical roots all the while continuing to project the maison's unwavering pursuit of horological excellence. The Raymond Weil Maestro The Beatles Let it Be Limited Edition will be priced at $2,995AUD.
Edox SkyDiver Neptunian
New from Edox is the SkyDiver Neptunian. With its super bright orange dial and Super-Luminova X1 coated hands and indices, there is a clear emphasis on legibility with the Skydiver Neptunian. The Skydiver Neptunian is a tried and tested diver, meaning that it's 1,000M depth rating and helium-escape valve can certainly be used. Add to that the fact that orange is one of the most visible colours in the ocean's depths, and what you have is one hell of a capable watch.
Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight Bronze
First came a silver model. Then a production ceramic model. Now we have a full bronze model complete with a matching bronze bracelet. Enter the latest variation of what is arguably Tudor's most famous model, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight Bronze. Encased in bronze and featuring a new colour palette based on a rich bronze-brown tone, the new Black Bay Fifty-Eight Bronze is as functional and versatile as its counterparts, albeit now encased in a brand new material. Available on either a bronze bracelet or bronze-brown fabric strap, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight Bronze continues to be powered by the manufacture calibre MT5400. The Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight Bronze is priced at $6,160AUD with a matching bronze bracelet.
Glashütte Original Sixties Chronograph Annual Edition 2021
New from Glashütte Original is the Sixties Chronograph Annual Edition 2021. Continuing on the lifestyle pieces inspired by the Swinging Sixties, the new Sixties Chronograph Annual Edition 2021 features a lovely steel case that surrounds a domed retro dial with a dégradé, where the centre of the dial shines a bright green which turns to a darker shade as you near the edge of the dial. The new Glashütte Original Sixties Chronograph Annual Edition 2021 is priced at $12,400AUD.
Jaquet Droz Bird Repeater “300th Anniversary Edition”
To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the maison's founder, Pierre Jaquet-Droz, the eponymous brand has released the Bird Repeater “300th Anniversary Edition”. Released in a limited run of only 8 pieces, the Bird Repeater “300th Anniversary Edition” is a truly spectacular timepiece, embodying an automaton with a minute repeater with a dial made of white mother-of-pearl and black onyx encased in 47mm of red gold.
