Frost On the Oak

Aude­mars Piguet cel­e­brated 40 years of Royal Oak for women in 2016 by en­list­ing Ital­ian jew­elry de­signer Carolina Bucci to de­sign a new “frosted gold” ver­sion of the iconic time­piece. This year, AP teams again with Bucci for an­other spe­cial edi­tion, this time ap­ply­ing the “frosted” fin­ish to yel­low gold and adding a mir­rored dial never be­fore seen in the col­lec­tion.

TAG Heuer Fast-tracks New Senna Edi­tions

Few watch brands are more closely as­so­ci­ated with auto rac­ing than TAG Heuer, so it is fit­ting that one of F1’s most leg­endary driv­ers has his legacy en­shrined in a se­ries of TAG Heuer time­pieces. The lat­est mod­els hon­or­ing three­time world cham­pion Ayr­ton Senna are a Heuer 02 Chrono­graph Au­to­matic, with sig­na­ture S-link bracelet, and a lim­ited-edi­tion ver­sion of the Heuer 02 Tour­bil­lon Chrono­graph.

Yel­low Time Ma­chines

While it is known for its ele­gant, high-horol­ogy time­pieces, F.P. Journe has been mak­ing its pres­ence felt, in its own dis­tinc­tive style, in the lux­ury sports-watch arena for the bet­ter part of a decade, and the lat­est mod­els in its sim­ply named line­s­port col­lec­tion, with eye­catch­ing yel­low di­als, fea­ture per­haps the watch­maker’s most boldly sport-ori­ented watches to date.

Co­rum Rolls Out The Bar­rels

Co­rum, in­no­va­tor of the Bub­ble, Golden Bridge and Coin Watch, con­tin­ues its ex­per­i­men­tal mis­sion with the new Lab 01 col­lec­tion, which the brand says will con­sist of mod­els “where me­chan­ics take prece­dence.” The first re­leases are two bar­rel-shaped lim­ited edi­tions meant to com­mem­o­rate Co­rum’s new bou­tique in Ma­cau, its first in China.

Make It a Dou­ble

With the re­lease of its dressy Glam­our Dou­ble Date col­lec­tion – out­fit­ted with a new ex­clu­sive cal­iber, which in a rar­ity for the brand is on dis­play be­hind an ex­hi­bi­tion case­back – Tu­dor re­minds us that there’s more to its eclec­tic and grow­ing port­fo­lio than the sporty and megapop­u­lar Black Bay and Pe­la­gos dive watch se­ries.

Pre­cious His­tory: Omega Sea­mas­ter 1948 In Plat­inum

The Omega Sea­mas­ter cel­e­brated 70 years at Basel­world 2018, with the re­lease of two com­mem­o­ra­tive lim­ited edi­tions of 1,948 pieces in stain­less steel, based on the orig­i­nal 1948 Sea­mas­ter. As the an­niver­sary year drew to a close, Omega fol­lowed them up with two ad­di­tional mod­els in plat­inum cases with an even more lim­ited run: just 70 pieces, one for each year of the iconic watch’s ex­is­tence.
