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.
