Blancpain Bathyscaphe Chronograph Flyback Rose Gold

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronographe Flyback

Blancpain are gearing up for a big year in 2023 as it marks the 70th anniversary of the legendary Fifty Fathoms design. However, just because expectations are high for 2023 doesn’t mean they forgot about this year, as the Blancpain Bathyscaphe Chronograph Flyback shows.

It has a 43mm diameter case in rose gold while maintaining a water resistance rating of 300m, not that you’d ever take it into the water. The combination of heritage, style and execution means even Scrooge couldn’t say humbug to it.

Ref: 5200 3640 O52B
43mm diameter x 14.9mm thickness, 18k red gold case, blue dial
Water resistance: 30m (3 bar)
Movement: Blancpain calibre F385, automatic, flyback chronograph, 37 jewels, 322 parts, 36,000 (5 Hz) frequency, 50h power reserve
Strap: Blue sail canvas fabric with folding clasp
Price: £26,200

Vacheron Overseas Chronograph Rose Gold

Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph

Vacheron Constantin’s standout launch of the year has to be the Historiques 222, but let’s be honest, not even Santa could get hold of one. So, our (slightly) more realistic suggestion is the Overseas Chronograph Rose Gold that emerged in October. It’s essentially a recolour of an existing watch with a blue dial and gold case, but that does nothing to detract from the fact it’s Vacheron Constantin’s signature colourway and that it’s superb. Plus, the calibre 5200 with its 52-hour power reserve is great too.

Ref: 5500V/110R-B952
42.5mm diameter x 13.7mm thickness, 18k pink gold case, blue dial
Water resistance: 15m (1.5 bar)
Movement: Vacheron Constantin calibre 5200, automatic, 28,800 vph (4 Hz) frequency, 52h power reserve
Strap: 18k pink gold bracelet
Price: £70,500

Zenith Chronomaster Sport Rose Gold

Zenith Chronomaster Sport

2022 for Zenith has largely been about the Defy collection, making it easy to forget that in spring they expanded the Chronomaster Sport range with a series of precious metal references, including one in rose gold. Chronographs are interesting because they’re a sports complication that rarely gets involved in the sport directly, because their purpose is timing, meaning that precious metals aren’t a detriment to them (unlike in a diving watch). Which means the Chronomaster Sport becomes much more elegant at very little cost to the design, it’s win-win.

Ref: 18.3101.3600/69.M3100
41mm diameter x 13.6mm thickness, 18k rose gold case, white dial
Water resistance: 100m (10 bar)
Movement: Zenith calibre El Primero 3600, automatic, 35 jewels, 311 parts, 36,000 vph (5 Hz) frequency, 60h power reserve
Strap: 18k rose gold bracelet
Price: £32,000

Glashutte Original PanoMaticLunar Rose Gold

Glashütte Original PanoMaticCalendar

The PanoMaticCalendar from Glashütte Original is as elegant and refined as they come with inspiration clearly drawn from that other Saxon watch giant, the A. Lange & Söhne Grande Lange 1. What makes the PanoMaticCalendar particularly special is the fact that it’s GO’s first annual calendar complication, a fittingly thematic complication for the end of the year considering that it only needs adjusting once per year, if kept wound. The calibre itself is called the 92-09.

Ref: 1-92-09-02-05-02 (pin buckle)
1-92-09-02-05-62 (folding clasp)
42mm diameter x 12.40mm thickness, 18k red gold case, galvanized silver dial
Water resistance: 50m (5 bar)
Movement: Glashütte Original calibre 92-09, automatic, 28,800 vph (4 Hz) frequency, 100h power reserve
Strap: Brown Louisiana alligator nubuk leather with pin buckle or folding clasp
Price: £27,200

TAG Heuer Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 Rose Gold

Bulgari Octo Finissimo

In the realm of haute horology there’s one competition that draws attention like no other, the race to produce the thinnest watch in the world. In 2022 three different watches have attempted to claim the title, one of those being from Bulgari. This is not that watch, however it is likely the closest equivalent that many collectors can hope to get to owning it. The Bulgari Octo Finissimo is just 6.4mm thick with its rose gold case and brown dial.

Ref: 103637
40mm diameter x 6.4mm thickness, 18k rose gold case, brown lacquered dial
Water resistance: 100m (10 bar)
Movement: Bulgari calibre BVL138, automatic, 36 jewels, 21,600 vph (3 Hz) frequency, 60h power reserve
Strap: 18k rose gold bracelet
Price: £37,000

It’s effortlessly versatile and practical, all the while maintaining its Art Deco charms. The movement inside is the calibre 853 with a 42-hour power reserve.

Ref: Q3912530
49.4mm length x 29.9mm width x 10.9mm thickness, 18k pink gold case, sunray brushed silvered grey dial (recto dial) and sunray brushed charcoal grey dial (verso dial)

TAG Heuer Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 Rose Gold

Tag Heuer Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 Limited Edition

If further proof was needed that chronographs look good in gold, here’s the Tag Heuer Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7. The precious metal emphasises the fact that the Tag Heuer Carrera is a watch as much at home outside of sport as it is in it. In fact, this duality is something shared by the Porsche Carrera (the car that inspired this collaboration), which was the first 911 designed to be an everyday vehicle that could also perform at events.

Ref: CBN2045.FC8316
42mm diameter, 18k pink gold case, white dial
Water resistance: 100m (10 bar)
Movement: Tag Heuer calibre 02, automatic, COSC-certified, 28,800 vph (4 Hz) frequency, 80h power reserve
Strap: Red alligator leather with 18k pink gold pin buckle
Price: £19,550

Piaget Polo Date Rose Gold

Piaget Polo Date

Lastly, we have the Piaget Polo Date, which is a severely underrated watch. It has lovely contrasting finishes on the round case and the porthole shaped dial with engraved lines is peak sports luxe design. It has all the style of watches like the Nautilus and Royal Oak without the baggage such big names can bring. Plus, with the green/teal dial that complements the Christmas tree, it suits the atmosphere of the holiday perfectly.

Ref: G0A47010
42mm diameter x 9.4mm thickness, 18k rose gold case, greenguilloché décor dial
Water resistance: 100m (10 bar)
Movement: Piaget calibre 1110P, automatic, 25 jewels, 180 parts, 28,800 vph (4 Hz) frequency, 50h power reserve
Strap: Green alligator leather with ardillon buckle
Price: £23,300
