So far 2018 has been a great year for watches, with established and new brands alike releasing some gorgeous pieces. If you’re in the market for a new piece of wrist candy the choice can be a little overwhelming. Luckily for you we’ve compiled our favourite releases into a handy edit so you don’t have to trawl through endless sites and boutiques to find that special watch you’ve been looking for…
Chopard Quattro L.U.C.
The new Quattro L.U.C., complete with blue saffiano strap, is a suave choice, and it is unexpectedly technologically advanced thanks to its 216-hour power reserve.
chopard.com, Approximately £20,800
Corum Romvlvs 44 Annual Calendar
The new Romvlvs from Corum takes a sideways look at a classic. This anniversary edition nods to the original model in 1966 which was delivered with its hour markers missing: as a consequence, they were engraved directly on to the bezel and made watchmaking history.
Urban Jurgensen Ref. 2140 WG (Jules Collection)
The tasteful 2140 WG from the Jules collection is everything we’d expect from Urban Jurgensen – beautifully made, the handcrafted guilloche black dial is the star here: created from a single piece of solid silver, it combines different patterns to give a great sense of depth.
urbanjurgensen.com, Approximately £21,200 + VAT
Breguet Classique 5157
The Breguet Classique 5157 was one of the most stylish new releases at Baselworld, with a guilloche dial and traditional blue hands nodding to the brand’s rich heritage.
Laurent Ferrier Galet Minute Repeater School Piece
Acoustics were the most important factor for Laurent Ferrier when it came to the pleasing sounding Galet Minute Repeater School Piece. As sound takes centre stage, design is muted, with their subtle design codes letting the craftsmanship speak for itself.
laurentferrier.ch, Approximately £212,000
