Girard-Perregaux – ww.tc
Previously a stand-alone watch range, the Girard-Perregaux ww.tc is now introduced as part of the 1966 collection. It features a user-friendly world time complication that allows for the time and reference city to be adjusted in both directions. A rotating 24-hour disc surrounding the chapter ring (displaying the 24 time zones) is coloured in white and black to indicate day and night respectively, while a small seconds display lies at six o’clock. The watch comes in pink gold and steel versions.
IWC Schaffhausen – Da Vinci
Restyled with a model from the 1980s as inspiration, the new Da Vinci collection of wristwatches from IWC Schaffhausen presents a classic round case and swivelling lugs, with Arabic numerals etched on its silver-plated dials. Headlining the new line-up of pieces is the ladies Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36, which offers a gold and blue moon phase indicator at 12 o’clock. Pictured is a version in stainless steel with 54 white diamonds set on its bezel. A variant in 18k red gold sans diamonds is also available.
Parmigiani Fleurier – Tonda Métrographe
Though still powered by the same calibre PF315, the new Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda Métrographe showcases a completely redesigned aesthetic. Crafted in either black or white, the steel pieces feature a repositioned date window (now at 12 o’clock instead of six); downsized chronograph counters that are decorated with snailing and framed by raised periphery rings instead of flat, luminescent ones; and smaller, rhodium-plated hour markers. The ticker also now comes with a tachymeter scale.
Corum – Golden Bridge Round
Corum first released the Golden Bridge timepiece in 1980, and this updated version, by designer Dino Modolo, the Corum Bridge Round represents a sweet spot in the manufacture’s attempt to revive the collection – there are a few more iterations out there. This piece features a beautiful 18k rose gold, skeletonised case decorated with meticulous hand engravings. Under the hood, the timepiece features the CO 113 calibre, with all the components stacked in a column to complete the watch’s aesthetic – and make it one of the more interesting complications out there from a design standpoint.
Montblanc – 1858 Collection
Not a single watch, but an entire collection rounds out this list. The latest iteration of Montblanc’s 1858 Collection introduces bronze for the first time (not pictured). This is a true blend of history on all fronts. The timepieces borrow design specs from the original 1930s Minerva chronograph, and embody the design ethos of military watches from the same era. Various automatic and hand-wound movements are available, with options for chronograph and dual time complications.
