Greubel Forsey GMT Earth The Final Edition

The third and final edition of the masterpiece that is the GMT Earth has just been released, and boy is it incredible. Clad in titanium, limited to only 11 pieces and weighing just 117 grams, the new Greubel Forsey GMT Earth The Final Edition is a wonderfully contemporary take on what is a very avant-garde timepiece.


Audemars Piguet 2021 Royal Oak Offshore Collection

Audemars Piguet continues its relentless expansion of its Royal Oak Offshore line, this time offering up five new watches. We've got two new Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 42mm models, one in titanium and one in stainless steel with either a light blue or khaki coloured dial and matching textured rubber strap, both featuring the maison's Méga Tapisserie dial. Then we have three new Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 42mm models in stainless steel, titanium and pink gold, all featuring a Petite Tapisserie dial. And the third piece is the Royal Oak Offshore Diver 42mm which is limited to only 300 pieces. 


Girard-Perregaux Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges

Girard-Perregaux is one of the most underrated maisons of traditional haute horlogerie. Since its inception some 230 years ago, the watchmaker has long been associated with the iconic three flying bridge design. And now it's back in its latest form, the Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges. Featuring a pink gold case with matching pink gold bridges, the new Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges is an aesthetic delight through and through. 


Chanel Monsieur. Superleggera Edition

How do you make a watch that is already as good as the Monsieur. is even better? Well, you endow it in black with dashes or red and you add the name "Superleggera" to it. Here is the new Monsieur. Superleggera Edition from Chanel, one of the most unconventional yet incredible looking pieces of 2021. I love its darkened aesthetic, its fantastic movement and its affinity with the extreme. Definitely on the want list. 


Breguet Tradition 7035

From Breguet we have the new Tradition 7035. This is a very bedazzling timepiece from Breguet, all the while still portraying Breguet's distinct inverted-dial aesthetic. We've got a stunning mother-of-pearl hours chapter in the off-centre dial, snow-setting throughout, 18k gold on the dial, plate and bridges which is then set with different sized diamonds and a bezel with brilliant-cut diamonds. 


Czapek Antarctique Rattrapante

A stainless steel split-seconds monopusher chronograph for under 50,000CHF? Yep, that's right. New from Czapek is the Antarctique Rattrapante. With its integrated stainless steel bracelet, inverted dial, cool aesthetic and obvious technical innovations, the new Czapek Antarctique Rattrapante is hands down one of the coolest watches of the year. Love it!


Louis Erard Excellence Régulateur

New from Louis Erard is the Excellence Régulateur available in three distinct and ultimately very beautiful variations. The three variations include the Excellence Régulateur Aventurine, the Excellence Régulateur Lapis-Lazuli, and the Excellence Régulateur Malachite. Each is limited to only 99 pieces, but with respect to the materials used for their dials, each is virtually unique. 


Breitling Top Time Classic Cars Capsule Collection

Paying homage to classic sports cars of the 1960s, the new Top Time Classic Cars Capsule Collection from Breitling features an eclectic and colourful variety of racing chronographs. Drawing inspiration from classic icons like the Corvette C2, the Ford Mustang and the Shelby Cobra, the new Top Time Classic Cars Capsule Collection definitely has something for everyone.
