In the spirit of ‘life must go on’ brands are launching new watches despite situations being unusual. Hiren Kumar Bose picks seven watches which debut this month
[Re]master01 AUDEMARS PIGUET Selfwinding Chronograph
Bringing the past into the present, [Re]master01 is equipped with the Manufacture’s newest generation of self-winding chronograph mechanism: an integrated chronograph with column wheel and flyback function. Contrary to the original wristwatch of 1943, [Re]master01 features a glare-proofed sapphire crystal caseback which reveals the beauty of the chronograph mechanism and the dedicated 22-ct pink gold oscillating weight matching the bezel Sherlock Holmes novel. The oscillating weight is satin-brushed and decorated with “Clous de Paris” — a traditional decoration technique used since the 1950s at Audemars Piguet. The teardrops lugs highlight the two-tone case’s harmonious curve, while the very thin bezel provides an unobstructed view on the dial’s detailed work 아웃룩 그림 다운로드. The case has been meticulously polished by hand. Although the dial design has retained the original timepiece’s classic features and Art Deco-inspired numerals, the watch’s enlarged 40 mm diameter ensures better legibility fit for contemporary use.

The new Patravi ScubaTec Black features impressive resilience, excellent technology, and outstanding functionality.

BREITLING Top Time Ltd Edition
More than half a century after introducing its Top Time watch, Breitling is launching an updated and upgraded model. Like the 1960s model that inspired it, the new Breitling Top Time has an unconventional design that makes a bold style statement. A first glance at the dial, which has long been known to collectors as the Zorro dial, makes it clear that this is a watch that doesn’t take itself too seriously 려권내라우 다운로드. But that playful face doesn’t disguise the superb chronograph performance, which is pure Breitling. Inside the Top Time’s 41-mm stainless-steel case is a Breitling Caliber 23 chronograph movement with a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. Its accuracy is confirmed by its status as a COSC-certified chronometer. The red hour and minute hands, as well as the dot markers for each hour, are coated with Super-LumiNova®, a luminescent material that ensures legibility in all lighting conditions words of the lips. Along with the central hour, minute, and chronograph second hands, the dial also features a decimal scale and two subdials – a small second counter at the 9 o’clock position and a 30-minute counter with unique red accents at 3 o’clock.

This striking watch is limited to 2000 pieces, and its caseback is engraved with “ONE OF 2000.”
MB&F Horological Machine No.10 – aka HM10 ‘Bulldog’
A rounded, compact body of titanium or red gold, coupled with a generous ration of sapphire crystal. Two prominent aluminium time-display “eyes”, rolling at anyone who dares look its way. A collar studded with projections that allow you to wind the mainspring or set the time water lilies. Stout but flexible “legs” that wrap firmly around your wrist. A big heart beating steadily at 2.5Hz (18,000vph). And a massive jaw that opens and shuts, showing you how much power your canine friend has in store: fully closed tells you that he’s wound down and ready for a nap. If you can clearly see the rows of shining teeth, get ready, because Bulldog is full of energy. The manual-winding engine of HM10 Bulldog was designed and developed in-house, leveraging previous experience built up over the years: the flying balance wheel hovering just beneath the central dome of sapphire crystal, the unconventional 3-dimensional power reserve indication, the paper-thin aluminium domes, the dual crown system, separating winding and time setting 오토캐드 2018 한글 다운로드.
HYT SooNow Drop Three
No stranger to taking watchmaking to new limits and territories, HYT following in the footsteps of a unique, propriety fluidic mechanism and the development of an intricate, skull-shaped capillary, it’s now time for an unexpected colour scheme to turn heads. The anodized titanium dial of the SooNow Drop Three (48mm) presents a turquoise canvas for a skull in burgundy and orange. This incorporates 313 pins in 18-ct rose gold and almost 1,000 high-precision perforations King of Fighters 2002. Smiling out of the skull are rose gold teeth that engage rather than spook. One eye socket acts as a colourful power reserve display. The other focuses on the passing of the seconds, featuring “small print” reminding of the imminence of SOON turning into NOW. Meticulous micro-painting subtly frames all of the skull’s facial features, while Orange Super-LumiNova® here and underneath the capillary adds an extra vibrant signature. Complementing the art of colour in this piece is the art of form. An architectural approach houses domed shaping, smooth lines and multi-layering. Written-out numbers appear to float above the skull’s outline, endorsed by perforated renditions encircling the case. This drop won’t let you forget that it will soon be now.
SEIKO Prospex The Black Series Limited Edition
A sporty, black number at a generous 44.3mm across, with brightly lumed hands and markers on dial and bezel, aesthetically complemented with pops of red for the seconds hand and water resistance rating, at 300m, the watch is driven by the self-winding 8L35 movement that offers hacking and hand-winding, with a power reserve of 50 hours, in a steel case with black hard coating and sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on the inside. At the extreme depths that constitute the working environment for professional divers, light behaves in a different way than near the surface: the bezel markers are lumed up to the 20-minute mark, while the red seconds hand and WR rating disappears because more red light is absorbed rather than reflected at depth. In this way, only critical information – time and elapsed time not past 20 – are brought to the fore.
