Some of the Best Recent Watch Releases You Might Have Missed
Grand Seiko's new tourbillon movement, Vacheron's newest Overseas models, a Italian-Japanese collab and more.
Unfortunately, we can't possibly cover every single new watch that comes across our desks in as deep a fashion as we'd like. However, here's our roundup of some of the coolest new watches released over the last couple weeks that we didn't get to just yet. You won't want to miss these — check 'em out!
Frederique Constant reintroduced a watch line built around a sporty theme and integrated steel bracelet. The collection includes basic automatic models as well as an "open heart" (the dial is cut out to display the balance wheel) and a sub-$10,000 perpetual calendar.
Italian brand Unimatic partnered with Japanese designer Mihara Yasuhiro for the second time to produce an all-white watch, from its Cerakote-coated steel case to its dial, hands, indices and even strap. Limited to 100 examples, it's a striking, fashion-forward look, powered by a Seiko NH35A automatic movement.
Vacheron Constantin gives its travel-themed sport watch a new treatment, with a blue dial matched to a fully pink gold case and bracelet. New versions include a time-and-date automatic and a perpetual calendar.
A new Submersible dive watch from Panerai features a blue ceramic bezel and black dial in a nicely sized 42mm case. Powered by the brand's own P.9000 automatic movement, it's available directly from the brand as an e-commerce exclusive.
It's the "Year of the Luminor" at Panerai as the brand celebrates 70 years of its most famous line. This new model — produced as part of the brand's partnership with the Luna Rossa sailing team — features a GMT function and a new sustainable material called Scafotech.
IWC announced an update to its famous chronograph — for the first time, the brand is offering the Portuguiser on a bracelet, and it looks absolutely killer. The bracelet features a butterfly-style clasp and it can also be bought separately for existing Portuguiser models.
Audemars Piguet's controversial CODE 11.59 collection gets a complicated, high-end, avant-garde new model with a skeletonized treatment, flying tourbillon and flyback chronograph. Housed in a white gold case, it's limited to only 50 examples.
A new version of G-Shock's aviation professional-geared Gravitymaster comes equipped with the brand's latest "Carbon Core Guard" technology for increased durability — and debuts in three colorways. It's packed with technical and durability features, of course, and will be available this month.
German watchmaker Junghans introduces a pair of minimalist watches dedicated to a local landmark in the Black Forest: a building called the Terrassenbau, which housed the Junghans manufacture. The building's terraced facade is depicted on the case back, but the watch is overall tasteful and classic, available in automatic and hand-wound versions.
Diameter: 38.4mm (auto); 37.7mm (manual)
Grand Seiko announced not a complete watch but teased with just a movement — of a type and complexity that's unexpected from the brand. Grand Seiko rarely strays into complications, but the new movement not only features what's considered the pinnacle of complicated horology, the tourbillon, but one of an even more rare variety using the principle of constant force. Keep an eye out for the watch that'll house it.
Joining Ulysse Nardin's Executive collection is a new Dual Time model, which shows a second time zone in 24-hour format at 9 o'clock. Don't mistake it for a date window — the date is displayed digitally at 2 o'clock.
