Angelus Instrument de Vitesse

The Angelus La Fabrique Instrument de Vitesse pays homage to vintage era racing tournaments with its mono-pusher design. Housed in a 39mm steel case, its 4.2mm manual-winding calibre keeps the timepiece under 10mm thickness, standing out with a distinctive tachymeter scale. The chronograph function measures speed readings within 60 seconds, with a single push-piece for the central seconds hand. The contrasting typography on the dial also ensures clear legibility. Available in two versions, it boasts applied Arabic numerals and lume coating on the hands and markers. Powered by the A5000 chronograph movement, it offers a 42-hour power reserve.

Arnold & Son Longitude Titanium

Boasting a rich legacy that’s steeped in developing marine chronometers, Arnold & Son have forayed into the premium sports watch segment, which had been an uncharted territory for them. They have launched the Longitude Titanium—a sporty-chic COSC-certified chronometer fitted on an integrated titanium bracelet. Inspired by the aesthetics and construction of John Arnold’s marine chronometers, this 42.5mm watch looks sleek and stylish, crafted in titanium and houses a vertical satin-finished dial, which follows the symmetry of the bracelet’s finish. The case is highly ergonomic and ultralight—offering maximum comfort on the wrist, thanks to titanium, which is about 45 percent lighter than steel. There is a fluted bezel with 60 notches and the crown is also protected by a shoulder, screwed down to offer a water-resistance of 100m. Available in three different dial hues of ‘fern green’, ‘ocean blue’ or ‘kingsand’, the watch is driven by the new COSC-certified A&S6302 calibre. It is wound by a skeletonised oscillating weight, carved from a single block of 22-karat gold, and beats at a frequency of 28,000vph to supply a power reserve of at least 60 hours.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Squelette

There is an undeniable charm and horological genius in crafting a skeleton timepiece. A testament to the brand’s mastery in form and function, the Riviera Squelette watch unveils a realm of intricate beauty, allowing a leisurely appreciation of its inner workings—the delicate interplay of gear trains and cogwheels revealed through its skeleton movement. On the impressive satin-polished stainless steel dodecagonal case, in 42mm, sits a black bezel ring in anodised aluminium that visually connects the bezel and case. It comes affixed to an interchangeable built-in black rubber strap, and features the free octagonal crown with the Baume & Mercier’s emblem—the Phi logo—exuding durability and style. A modern and fresh timepiece, this edition pays homage to the sleek and streamlined architecture of the contemporary villas that grace the Riviera’s coastline.

Bell & Ross BR 05 Skeleton Black Lum Ceramic

Of the trio of ceramic watches showcased by Bell & Ross, the BR 05 Skeleton Black Lum Ceramic is, perhaps, the most striking. This is primarily for the matt black sandblasted finish on its 41mm ceramic case. Angles on the case timepiece are softened by the treatment on the case that is water resistant to 100m. Limited to only 500 pieces, the watch is paired with an integrated bracelet made from ceramic and featuring the same sandblasted treatment as the case. A black smoked sapphire crystal dial offers a view of the automatic mechanical BR-CAL.321 movement, as does the transparent caseback. On the dial, rhodium-plated indexes and skeletonised hands are filled with the striking green luminescent material found on all the brand’s Lum timepieces. As an icon of everyday urban watches for the brand’s BR 05 collection, the BR 05 Skeleton Black Lum Ceramic stands out as a stealthy black watch with just the hint of luminescence.

Bremont Terra Nova 38

Bremont’s Terra Nova field watch collection pays homage to the rugged elegance and practicality of early 20th-century military pocket watches. The 38mm two-hand model, in particular, captures the essence of these vintage timepieces with its meticulously crafted contemporary geometric cushion case in 904L stainless steel. The case features a combination of brushed and polished textures for a unique and iconic look. The dial boasts oversized numerals and indexes filled with Super-LumiNova for exceptional legibility in low light conditions. A closed case back is engraved with a charted map of the world and the words ‘Terra Nova’, while the oversized crown ensures easy operation even with gloved hands. The Terra Nova showcases Bremont’s ability to seamlessly blend historical design cues with modern materials and manufacturing techniques, resulting in a timepiece that is both visually striking and functionally impressive.

Chronoswiss Strike Two: H2O And Golden Gear

The Chronoswiss regulator-style dial gets a horizontal re-orientation with the new Strike Two series timepieces, H2O and Golden Gear. The horizontal layout features the hours in a sub-dial at three and a beautiful guilloche backdrop for the small seconds at nine o’clock. Visible behind the hour sub-dial are two vertical bridges that lend the collection its name, and the gear work of the movement. The backdrop comprises a textured, CVD coating in blue for the H2O model, while dark grey vertical brushing on the dial of the Golden Gear watch ensures that the red gold highlights stand out. Luminous dots on the minute track around the dial’s periphery, and Super-LumiNova-filled leaf hands aid legibility. The movement housed within the 40mm steel cases is the new C.6000 manufacture calibre, with a power reserve of 55 hours.

Czapek Antarctique Mount Erebus

Named after the world’s southernmost active volcano, the Czapek Antarctique Mount Erebus is a nod to said volcano’s metallic gold eruptions. The 40.5mm case made from rose gold or yellow gold features brushed and polished finishes that accentuate the similar treatment on the matching integrated bracelet. While the links have a brushed, matt effect, the C-shaped links that connect them feature a glossy, polished finish. A textured deep blue lamé dial harks back to the origins of the collection, complementing the treatment on the case and bracelet. Gilded highlights on the dial match those of the case, with sword shaped hands and indexes filled with lume to aid legibility, and a tone-on-tone date window at six. The watch is powered by the SXH5 automatic calibre, offering a 60-hour power reserve.

The watch houses the new FC-716 Manufacture Calibre movement, offering a 72-hour power reserve and adorned with fan-shaped côtes de Genève decorations.

Gerald Charles Masterlink

Gerald Charles has introduced the Masterlink, a watch that seamlessly combines their signature asymmetrical case with a beautifully crafted bracelet. The watch comes in two stunning dial options: a rich blue and an elegant silver, both featuring Super-LumiNova-treated numerals and markers for excellent legibility. The bracelet is a true work of art, with each link carefully designed to flow seamlessly into the case. The slim 8mm profile ensures a comfortable fit on the wrist, making it perfect for daily wear. Under the hood, the Masterlink is powered by the exclusive GCA 5401 automatic movement, developed in collaboration with Vaucher. The movement’s intricate details can be admired through the watch’s transparent caseback. The Masterlink is an exciting addition to Gerald Charles’ lineup, showcasing the brand’s ability to create a watch that balances its unique design language with contemporary sensibilities. For those drawn to the brand’s story and Genta’s legacy, the Masterlink offers a fresh perspective on what a luxury sports watch can be, making it an intriguing choice for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

Grand Seiko Evolution 9 Collection

Grand Seiko have revisited the dress watch era of the 1960s when manual-winding timepieces were the order of the day. They have introduced two new 38.6mm models in the Evolution 9 Collection—one in titanium and the other in 18-karat rose gold, limited to 80 pieces only. Here, several aspects of the design have been revisited; from the prominent, grooved indexes, which have been slimmed down and elongated, to the multifaceted lugs, which are now narrower and have a smaller surface area. The watch’s centre of gravity has been lowered to ensure the comfort and stability for the wearer. The dial is inspired by the white birch trees found in northern parts of Japan and this is evident in the exquisite pattern, which echoes the beauty of the tree’s bark with its fine veinous texture. It is driven by the new 9SA4 movement, which beats 10 times per second while achieving a power reserve of 80 hours when fully wound, thanks to its Dual Impulse Escapement and two barrels. It is also equipped with the brand’s free-sprung balance and a hairspring with overcoil, which allows greater rate stability, resistance to outside interference, and high performance that have been hallmarks of Grand Seiko’s high-beat movements.

H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner Tourbillon Skeleton

Moser & Cie. don’t normally do open-worked watches, perhaps because it interferes with their concept of minimalism. But when they do, one can see Moser’s minimalism shining through even extremely busy skeleton watches. Their 2022 Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton timepiece was astounding for its legibility and minimalism, even despite being open-worked. This year, H. Moser & Cie. present an entirely open-worked timepiece in their Streamliner Tourbillon Skeleton, with an integrated and supple bracelet. Unlike most skeleton watches, reading time on this timepiece is extremely easy, courtesy of rose gold indexes and matching lume-filled hands against anthracite and silver components of the HMC 814 automatic calibre. By further skeletonising components such as the gold rotor and barrel housing the spring, the brand ensure minimalism, even in the movement—or the dial’s decoration, if you will. At six o’clock is a flying, one-minute tourbillon, held in place by a skeletonised bridge. With the Streamliner Tourbillon Skeleton, H. Moser & Cie. prove, yet again, that minimal watches are the way to go.

Hublot Big Bang Integrated Time Only

Hublot introduces the Big Bang Integrated Time Only, a minimalist 38mm rendition of its iconic design, echoing the brand’s 1980s origins. Embracing universal elegance and unisex appeal, it retains signature features like the robust case, bezel screws, and skeleton hands. The six models, in titanium, King Gold, and ceramic, boast integrated cases and bracelets for a seamless aesthetic. With soft ferromagnetic steel dials enhancing precision, they house the new HUB1115 movement, offering a 48-hour power reserve and refined finishes. This evolution signifies a shift towards minimalism while maintaining the essence of Hublot’s heritage, catering to diverse tastes with sophistication and versatility.

IWC Portugieser Eternal Calendar

The headlining act from IWC is the new Portugieser Eternal Calendar crafted in an intricately finished platinum case with polished and brushed surfaces. The 44.4mm timepiece offers impressive efficiency and technical elegance as it’s the next level of perpetual calendars—an IWC specialisation. The brand are calling it their ‘first secular perpetual calendar’ since in addition to recognising the different lengths of the months and adding a leap day every four years, the timepiece also takes into account the Gregorian calendar’s complex leap-year exception rules. It is equipped with a newly engineered 400-years gear that ensures the calendar automatically skips three leap years over four centuries. It features a white frosted dial and the sub-dials are machined and polished separately, and subsequently fixed onto the watch face. The numerals and the characteristic Portugieser minute scale are printed on a white lacquered flange perched between the glass dial and the front glass. The moon phase indication stands out and is displayed using the characteristic Double Moon indication, which shows the moon as seen from the Northern and Southern hemispheres. It is driven by the newly developed IWC-manufactured 52640 calibre, featuring the Pellaton winding system and two barrels, which help in supplying the watch with a seven-day power reserve. Water-resistant to 50m, it is presented on a black alligator leather strap with a platinum folding clasp.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Chronograph Moon

The Chronograph Moon features a new JLC calibre 391 that operates a chronograph, 1/6th-second counter, day-night indicator, and moonphase. It is available in platinum with copper dial or rose gold with silver opaline dial.

The manual winding movement, when fully charged, offers about 50 hours of power reserve through each barrel, and 3Hz. It is decorated in a mix of finishes, particularly Geneva stripes.

Laurent Ferrier Classic Moon

The Laurent Ferrier atelier at the Watches and Wonders Geneva 2024 introduce two remarkable additions to their Classic collection—the Classic Moon Silver and Classic Moon Blue. These timepieces feature an annual calendar and mark the brand’s first moon phase complication. Encased in the signature Classic case, available in polished stainless steel or 18-karat red gold, both versions boast a balanced 40mm case and elegantly curved lugs for a comfortable fit. The steel Classic Moon features a grey-blue opaline dial with vintage-inspired date numbers in pastel blue, while the red gold version showcases a vertical satin-finished silver dial with date numbers in petrol blue transfer. The Classic Moon Blue comes with dark grey Nubuck strap, while the Silver version features a brown calf leather strap. Both references are powered by the manual winding LF126.02 movement, visible through a sapphire caseback and offering an 80-hour power reserve.

Louis Moinet Around The World In Eight Days: Paris

The Louis Moinet Around The World In Eight Days Paris edition features a dial that looks like a jigsaw puzzle made up of 81 interlocking pieces. Together, these pieces reproduce the map of Paris, which serves as a backdrop for the Eiffel Tower. This iconic Paris landmark, symbolising the city, is hand-sculpted from a fragment of an original beam from 1889, showcasing Louis Moinet’s meticulous craftsmanship. The Paris watch is packed inside an 18-karat red gold case paired with a green alligator leather strap, providing a marvellous contrast with the white dial background.

Nomos Tangente 38 Date

Nomos have launched not one, five or seven, but 31 watches under their most popular collection, Tangente, at Watches and Wonders Geneva 2024. Titled Nomos Tangente 38 Date, each dial is a refreshing cocktail mashing two or three vivid hues and successfully upend the largely Nomos monochromatic dials as noticed in previous lineups. Inspired by the 31 days of the month, each version of the Tangente 38 Date also picks classic traits from the Tangente Rose Gold Neomatik launched in 2023 to mark Nomos’ 175th anniversary in watchmaking. Just like the special edition Neomatik, each one of the 31 Tangente 38 versions is limited to 175 pieces and the outer minute track is highlighted with a contrasting hue. The new watches are powered by the Nomos date movement DUW 4101, visible at the caseback along with the engraved name of the watch and the limited-edition number.

Oris Aquis Date

This year, the bestselling collection from Oris gets a sleek new update, with a redesign that makes the everyday watch even more wearable than before. More slender than the editions prior to this one, the case thickness is the main feature of the redesign. In addition to that, the sculpted lugs and even the crown guards have been given a touch-up. This lends the watch a more fluid and streamlined appearance, while remaining edgy and sturdy. A more tapering bracelet than before enhances the streamlined silhouette, as the central links of the bracelet have been widened a little for a fresher appearance. On the dial, the applied hour markers have been redesigned as well, complementing the custom alpha-shaped hands. Meanwhile the new typography will only be used for the Aquis collection, and the date disc has been recoloured to blend in with the dial hue—black, blue or green. Sized at 43.5mm and 41.5mm, the new Aquis Date is still powered by the same movements—the five-day calibre 400 for the larger versions, and 38-hour calibre 733 for the smaller ones.

Panerai Submersible Tourbillon GMT Luna Rossa Experience Edition

Limited to just 20 units, this timepiece is the first Submersible in 45mm to feature the tourbillon complication and also the first of its kind to ‘marry the complexity of a tourbillon with the futuristic appeal of Carbotech—a composite material based on carbon fibre’. It is lighter than titanium and ceramic and offers great resistance to external forces and corrosion. This is used to craft the watch’s case, which has been scaled down in size but doesn’t minimise the impressive presence on the wrist. It is driven by the hand-wound P.2015/T mechanical calibre, resulting from three years of dedicated development—where just the assembly of the movement and tourbillon cage required eight hours of painstaking craftsmanship. This mechanism has been patented and the tourbillon completes a horizontal rotation every 30 seconds. It rotates on the perpendicular to the balance wheel and thus compensates for the effects of gravity on the accuracy of the timepiece. Beating at a frequency of 28,800vph, the watch offers a phenomenal four-day power reserve, whose indicator is placed on the reverse side of the watch. The dial also showcases a 24-hour GMT function and a night and day indication at three o’clock. Water-resistant to 300m, it is presented on a bi-material rubber and textile strap

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Micro-Rotor No Date

The Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Micro-Rotor No Date is a sophisticated timepiece that will appeal to horology purists. Unlike its predecessor, this timepiece focuses solely on displaying hours and minutes, without the date window.

Encased in a 40mm polished and satin-finished stainless steel with platinum, featuring a knurled bezel, the watch is paired with a matching bracelet and folding clasp. Beneath its aesthetic charm lies the ultra-thin PF703 automatic movement, beating at 3Hz frequency and delivering 48-hour power reserve.

Speake Marin have expanded their Ripples collection by introducing the Ripples Dune Date at Watches and Wonders Geneva 2024. This Dune Date timepiece juxtaposes a sand-coloured metallic dial with a green small seconds counter and outer minute track. The small seconds counter at 1.30 (between one o’clock and two o’clock) is a notable signature of Speake Marin, featuring a distinct sunray pattern, polished indexes and a solitary rhodium-plated steel hand. It features a 40.3mm steel case with matching bracelet. The self-winding SMA03-TD movement beats at the frequency of 4Hz and offers 52-hour power reserve.

For the first time ever—discounting the Only Watch version created in 2023, that is—TAG Heuer present the rattrapante complication in the square Monaco case with the Monaco Split Seconds Chronograph. The 41mm square titanium case features either a DLC treatment on the red timepiece or a sandblasted and polished finish on the blue version. While chronograph pushers and crown are on the right of the case, at nine o’clock is the push button that activates the split seconds chronograph, with a protector covering it. On the sapphire crystal dial of each are three counters at three and nine o’clock, with the running seconds at six. Clearly distinguished from the central chronograph hand is a rattrapante hand lacquered in red or blue, depending on the dial. Skeletonised hands and indexes on both timepieces are filled with Super-LumiNova, aiding legibility in all lighting conditions. Powering the watch is the new TH81-00 calibre, that offers at least 55 hours of  power reserve with the chronograph running.

Trilobe L’Heure Exquise

Trilobe debut their first complication with the limited-edition L’Heure Exquise timepieces, extending the poetic narrative of their Les Matinaux series. Three new timepieces, limited to 100 pieces each, feature a moon phase display and matt finish dials and are available in titanium (38.5mm) or rose gold (40.5mm). The L’Heure Exquise introduces subtle yet distinctive elements, such as a single tri-folium indicating hours and minutes, slightly tilted hour markers, and the moon phase display. Along with the aforementioned versions, there is also a ‘Secret’ edition, which has a special dial option that shows the starry night sky as seen on a certain date and from a specified location. Powered by Trilobe’s iconic X-Centric calibre, these timepieces continue the journey that the maison are quite clearly on: rewriting the method of timekeeping.

Tudor Black Bay 58 GMT

The Black Bay 58 line was launched in 2018 and was an instant hit for its compact proportions. And this year, Tudor have further downsized this GMT reference by nearly 2mm in height, all thanks to a new METAS-certified MT5450-U movement. With a 39mm stainless-steel case topped with a bidirectional bezel, the Black Bay 58 GMT comes in alluring warm hues of black and burgundy. The case proportions have been created in keeping with the characteristic proportions of the 1950s. The bezel features a gilt 24-hour scale, keeping with the design codes of the Black Bay line, with subtly curved numerals aligning with the outline of the outer ring. The seconds hand recalls the look of the early diving watches of the brand with a lollipop design and the winding crown bears the Tudor rose logo in relief. The watch is driven by the automatic manufacture calibre, which offers at least 65 hours of power reserve. It is presented on a rivet-style three-link bracelet and also comes with an option of a black rubber strap.

Ulysse Nardin Freak S Nomad

Ever since Ulysse Nardin released their first Freak in 2001, the timepiece seems to get freakier with every new update. The latest Freak S Nomad looks like something out of science fiction, except that it isn’t. The 45mm titanium case features an anthracite coated PVD bezel, and carbon fibre side plates that double up as lugs. With no crown, the titanium ‘locker’ at six o’clock on the case is what activates the bezel, which, in turn, sets the time on the watch. The dial is where the real freakishness begins. It’s one thing to have the movement turned inside out, it’s a totally different kind of freaky party when the movement looks like the UN-251 manufacture calibre. Two oversized oscillators with silicon balance wheels bring to mind propellers on a spacecraft (Millenium Falcon from the original Star Wars, anyone?). More compelling is the hand-guilloche hour disc in sand-coloured CVD placed under the movement. A traditionally futuristic way to merge watchmaking history with a flying carousel movement. A true Freak, indeed.

Zenith Defy Extreme Diver

Despite taking design codes from 1969 dive watches by Zenith, the new Defy Extreme Diver is extremely contemporary in its size, materials, dial and legibility. The robust 42.5mm case is made from lightweight and corrosion-resistant titanium, and boasts a water resistance rating of 600m, putting it up there with the serious dive timers. A unidirectional rotating ceramic dive bezel surrounds the fixed 12-sided bezel, with grooves for easy handling. On the periphery of the sun-brushed dial embossed with the Defy line’s signature four-pointed stars, an orange flange housing the minute track is a nod to historical dive watches. Oversized hands, indexes and numerals on the bezel are filled with bright X1 Super-LumiNova in blue, green and orange, making it easy to read at a glance underwater, or in low light. Blue or black dial options are complemented by matching bezel rings and are paired with titanium bracelets that offer easy interchangeability with two additional straps in rubber or made from recycled fishing nets. The Defy Extreme Diver is powered by the El Primero 3620-SC automatic high-frequency calibre, offering enhanced anti-magnetism, and a power reserve of 60 hours.
