Another week down, another round-up of all the latest watch releases in our regular series, The Wind Up. In this week’s edition we’ll be covering new watches from Parmigiani Fleurier, Jaquet Droz, Breguet and Glashütte Original. Enjoy gents!
Parmigiani Fleurier Tondagraph GT
New from Parmigiani Fleurier is the Tondagraph GT with bicolour slivered dials. Both models envisage that typical contemporary “Panda” aesthetic, particularly so with the stainless steel model that is paired with either a rubber strap or steel bracelet. The gold model, also available on a rubber strap or matching gold bracelet looks far more opulent and bold, while both models clearly continue Parmigiani Fleurier’s thematic and distinct approach to its watchmaking.
Ulysse Nardin Freak X Marquetry
Ulysse Nardin is no stranger to the use of novel materials. And this pursuit of innovation extends to its latest piece, the Freak X Marquetry. Embellished with a supremely contemporary decorative technique, the new Freak X Marquetry features silicium marquetry across its dial in a dramatic yet subtle manner.
Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date
From the German watchmaker Glashütte Original we have the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date. This distinct timepiece draws aesthetic comparisons to the design flair of the 1970s. Coupled with bright and poppy colours, the new Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date is a blast from the past, for sure.
Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Dragon
Jaquet Droz has pulled out all the stops for its latest artistic endeavour in the Petite Heure Minute Dragon. Available in two gold case variations, the new Petite Heure Minute Dragon was created in collaboration with John Howe, the maison known for his artistic direction in The Lord of the Rings series. Set against a dark bleu Grand Feu enamel dial, the Petite Heure Minute Dragon depicts a dragon in all of its might adorning the bottom hemisphere of the dial. This is a delicate, intriguing and supremely beautiful timepiece that really emphasises the Art of Astonishment, a direction that Jaquet Droz prides itself on taking with many of its cherished timepieces.
Breguet Introduces New Variations to its Marine Collection
Breguet has offered new variations to three of its Marine models, the 5517, the 5527 and the 5547. Now available in a rose gold case with a slate-grey dial and in titanium with a blue dial, the new variations breathe new life into one of its most versatile and sporty collections. For lovers of heft, the rose-gold models will definitely be right up your alley, whereas for those looking for comfort and functionality, the titanium models will be more than suitable.
