This Week in Watches: December 2, 2014

This Week in Watches: commemorating Raymond Weil, Hublot’s tribute to Cricket, Bulova puts out a 24 karat timepiece and more.



The Midas Watch
Bulova, a brand better known for its affordable everyman watches, has created the world’s first watch with a 24-karat gold case, thanks to a proprietary gold hardening technique. The price: $42,000. This is not your father’s Bulova.

Chocks Away
The man behind GasGasBones straps has created a limited-series watch inspired by iconic British pilot’s chronographs.

Sticky Wicket
Cricket is an inscrutable sport to just about anyone outside the British Commonwealth. But that didn’t stop Hublot from making a watch commemorating next year’s Cricket World Cup, complete with a red leather strap reminiscent of a cricket ball.

A Move Toward Classic
Tsovet usually makes chunky watches inspired by aircraft gauges. Its JPT-TS44 is a more classic timepiece reminiscent of midcentury pilot’s chronographs.

Downhill Racer
Longines has long been official timekeeper for FIS World Cup Skiing. The Conquest 1/100th Alpine Skiing chronograph is a tribute to the high-speed sport.

Dialed In
In its expanding effort to be vertically integrated, Shinola has started making its own dials, something few watchmakers, American or otherwise, are doing.

A Fitting Tribute
Watch industry pioneer Raymond Weil passed away earlier this year, and his namesake brand has released a limited-edition tribute chronograph to honor his memory.
