Welcome to this week’s edition of The Wind Up, our regular series where we feature the latest watch releases of the past seven days. In this week’s edition, we’ll be featuring new watches from Richard Mille, Bell & Ross and Patek Philippe. Enjoy gents!
Richard Mille RM 35-03 Rafael Nadal
The latest and greatest from Richard Mille comes in the form of the new RM 35-03 Rafael Nadal. This is the product of 3 years of development, where we have a brand new patented complication, the butterfly rotor. The RM 35-03 Rafael Nadal’s butterfly rotor gives the wearer the ability to directly interact with the rotor’s geometry, where they can control the movement’s winding speed. The benefit of this is improved performance in high-activity situations while conserving energy and minimising stress on the movement during periods of reduced activity. Super cool stuff.
Bell & Ross BR 05 Horolum
Bell & Ross is back with the BR 05 Horolum. Minimalistic in its style and design, the BR 05 Horolum features an extensive coating of Super-LumiNova C5, the most powerful photoluminescent coating in existence. Limited to only 150 pieces, the Bell & Ross BR 05 Horolum has a bead-blasted steel case that complements its luminescent properties and provides a beautifully smooth and clean backdrop to what is a very modern-looking watch.
Seiko Presage Sharp Edged Series Asia Limited Edition
From Seiko we have the new Presage Sharp Edged Series Asia Limited Edition. Drawing inspiration from the simplicity and refinement of traditional Japanese aesthetics, the Presage Sharp Edged Series Asia Limited Edition features a delicately textured dial, sharp angular edges on the case and a lovely visual flow thanks to that gorgeous Japanese colour called “gofun”. “Gofun” adds that distinct yellow effect to the white dial which is complimented by the rose gold colour used for the hands and indices.
Patek Philippe 5711/1A-018 Nautilus
The final hoorah for the iconic 5711 family of watches is the Tiffany & Co. 5711/1A-018 Nautilus. Available in a limited run of 170-pieces, the new 5711/1A-018 Nautilus has a lovely Tiffany Blue dial, blackened gold indices and hands, that distinct Nautilus-porthole shaped stainless steel case, and all of the tell-tale signs of a future collectable.
