It was a great year for the lux­ury watch in­dus­try with record break­ing sales in the U.S. and much of the world. As a re­sult the out­put of new watches for the year was quite im­pres­sive and di­verse. The se­lec­tion be­low shows both this high qual­ity and the di­ver­sity. They in­clude watches with mys­tery move­ments, modern recre­ations of iconic time­pieces and de­signs em­pha­siz­ing the­matic con­cepts. Some of the watches were cre­ated to honor an­niver­saries and mile­stones. There are chrono­graphs, clas­sic watches and world timers. And they in­clude pieces from some of best-known lux­ury brands and lesser-known small in­de­pen­dent brands. So en­joy these watches as the in­dus­try is al­ready pro­duc­ing pieces for 2019.

Aude­mars Piguet 25th An­niver­sary Royal Oak Off­shore Aude­mars Piguet is cel­e­brat­ing the 25th an­niver­sary of its iconic Royal Oak Off­shore. The Swiss watch­maker pre­sented three new ver­sions of the sports watch: a re-edi­tion of the orig­i­nal 42 mm Royal Oak Off­shore Selfwind­ing Chrono­graph; and a new 45 mm Royal Oak Off­shore Tour­bil­lon Chrono­graph with a con­tem­po­rary dial de­sign in stain­less steel and pink gold. Since it was in­tro­duced in 1993, the Swiss watch brand has launched more than 120 ref­er­ences of this highly pop­u­lar 42 mm model in var­i­ous ma­te­ri­als, in­clud­ing stain­less steel, ti­ta­nium, gold and plat­inum.
