For this year, Richard Mille updates their RM 017 collection with an even more technologically advanced hand-wound Tourbillon Extra Flat model that now comes in an ultra-thin case crafted from 18-karat red gold measuring less than nine millimeters from top to bottom.
With the new limited-edition Transocean Chronograph 01, Breitling somewhat loses its present individuality of a maker of some seriously blingy sh*t, but makes a good claim to the niche of elegant dressy chronographs powered by manufacture-made movements.
IWC has once again updated its gorgeous Portuguese Perpetual Calendar range extending the line with three extra models and two choices of metal. Besides an older version in platinum (Ref. IW502305,) you can now get it in red gold (Ref. IW502306) and white gold (Ref. IW502307,) too.
Hublot, one of the youngest (and the most daring) ultra-luxury watchmaking brands, has introduced yet another iteration of its top-selling Big Bang collection of sporty chronographs. The 2010 Big Bang Gold Chronograph (ref. 301.PX.1180.RX) comes in a generous 44.5-mm case made of brushed 18-karat red gold.
The Swiss luxury brand Omega has just revealed a pair of new members of their Constellation Double Eagle collection. Available in titanium and red gold, both chronographs will be sold as Double Eagle Mission Hills Numbered Edition. Yes, they may be not as sober and stern as the De Ville collection, but they surely look as stately as one can possibly get.
Sporting a tiny “jumping hours” display, the 2009 Jaquet Droz Les Douze Villes (ref. J010133202) is equipped with a peculiar, but fancy second time-zone display.
Celebrating the 5th anniversary of their landmark Papillon chronograph, which in its own turn itself celebrated the 10th anniversary of the brand, Daniel Roth has recently revealed the new take on their famous and much-adored timepiece. Presenting it in a fresh blue-and-silver color scheme, the brand has also equipped the device with a new movement. The mechanism is made by one of the most revered manufacturers in the country, which is famous for its high-precision mechanisms. Featuring the same Ellipsocurvex case and a pair of patented lozenge-shaped pivoting-head retrograde minute hands, the new Papillon Chronograph (ref. 319.Z.60.394.CM.BD) now sports a mechanical self-winding Frederic Piguet column-wheel chronograph caliber.
