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. bulova.com

Chocks Away
The man behind GasGasBones straps has created a limited-series watch inspired by iconic British pilot’s chronographs. 6bwatches.co.uk

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. hublot.com

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. tsovet.com

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. longines.com
