Watch Report 2021: Our favourite green dial watches of the year

An unexpected colour, green has been a hot favourite among manufactures this year. Patek Philippe While the Patek Philippe Ref. 5711/1A Nautilus in stainless steel will soon be discontinued, watch connoisseurs can look forward to a new addition to the cult range. The manufacture presented the Ref. 5711/1A-014 Nautilus featuring a ridged sunburst dial in an elegant olive green – a brand new hue for the collection. There’s no doubt that the new colourway suits the Gérald Genta-designed Nautilus perfectly. There is also a unisex bejewelled version, Ref. 5711/1300A-001, which features...

Watch Report 2021: Our favourite new flying tourbillons of the year

If flying tourbillons are your weakness, these models might just tickle your fancy. Louis Vuitton The French house’s contribution to high watchmaking this year is a flying tourbillon-fitted GMT creation peppered with signature motifs, such as the glorious initial “V” – a tribute to Gaston Vuitton. Developed by the maison’s own manufacture La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton, the Tambour Curve GMT Flying Tourbillon features a case whose shape is an extrapolation of last year’s Tambour Curve Flying Tourbillon Poinçon de Genève. Made of shot-blasted grade 5 titanium, the 46mm case middle of this...

Watch Report 2021: Our favourite fancy dial watches of the year

Here are four watch models featuring eye-catching, fancy dials ranging from a meteorite to a Marvel superhero. Rolex The Crown’s 2021 novelties include refreshments to the Oyster Perpetual Explorer range, some utterly over-the-top bejewelled additions to the Day-Date 36 and Lady-Datejust collections, as well as a number of new dial designs for the Datejust 36 and Day-Date 36.

TAG Heuer celebrates the 12th GP Historique with the Monaco Green Dial

A mean, green, classic-car-ready machine… Now that the fanfare of Watches & Wonders has well and truly subsided, I think we can say comfortably that the big ‘theme’ of this year’s various and sundry presentations was green. Whether for its fiscal connotations or how it viscerally suggests the appeal of the great outdoors, a lot of brands this year launched timepieces shaded in Kermit’s favourite colour — from Piaget‘s impossibly thin ‘Tribute to La Côte-aux-Fées’ to the lagoon-inspired Moser Mega Cool. Not one to go quietly into the proverbial woods, TAG Heuer released their own green...

Luxury watches made with precious metals like platinum, titanium and proprietary alloys

The pay-offs of intensive research and development in metallurgy, these eight extraordinary timepieces are made of metals exhibiting remarkable properties. Platinum More precious and durable than gold, platinum is the denser and rarer metal. Due to its less malleable nature, platinum is comparatively harder to be fabricated into watch cases. This test of craftsmanship is reflected in the price tag and only the most exceptional watches are justified with the precious metal option, one of which is the Cartier Tank Asymétrique. Limited to 100 numbered pieces and part of the Cartier Privé collection,...

Perpetual Planet is Rolex’s initiative to preserve ocean ecosystems

Through its Perpetual Planet initiative, Rolex is lending its support to the effort to preserve ocean ecosystems for posterity. Rolex is famed for producing some of the finest and most coveted timepieces in the world, but for at least 100 years the Swiss company has also ventured beyond watchmaking by supporting numerous fields of human endeavour and achievement, from the arts and sport to scientific research, exploration and the pursuit of a deeper understanding of the world in which we live.

Watches and Wonders 2021: The most aspirational timepieces

Titanium tourbillons, skeletonised shape watches, collabs with Japanese architects — these Watches and Wonders releases cost as much as sovereign wealth assets, but are still worth celebrating. Why? Because they’re the stuff of horological dreams. It’s a truism that every year the biggest watch releases — the kinds that cut above the blogosphere’s din and permeate into broader culture — are those with some semblance (or at the least the appearance) of approachability. Watches like the Tudor Black Bay or monochrome Must de Cartier are emblematic in that regard — whether it be because of their...
