This post features a few noteworthy new releases of this year.
Air Command – This 500-piece limited edition of the chronograph developed in the 1950s for U.S. Air Force pilots features a 42.5mm steel case, a ratcheted "countdown" rotating bezel, a box-type sapphire crystal, numerals and markers coated with orange "old radium"-type Super-LumiNova®.
SeaQ Date Panorama – Inspired by a model from 1969, this divers’ watch features a 43.2mm steel case with 300-metre water-resistance, a sunray blue dial, a tone-on-tone rotating bezel, hands and markers highlighted with Super-LumiNova®, a large date window and a 100-hours power reserve.
H²0– HYT uses a patented micro-fluidic module to display the passage of time. Inscribed on the flange, "Time is Fluid", this model features a 51mm case which has banished straight lines. The dial opens wide onto the mechanism and the flow of time, captured by the movement of red and transparent liquids through a circular capillary tube.
Tambour Spin Time – Instead of a conventional central hand, hours are shown by way of 12 rotating cubes. Every 60 minutes, one of the cubes instantly flips to show a "neutral" side, handing over to its neighbor which spins to show its "distinctive" side. This tenth anniversary model concentrates the movement into a much smaller area.
Seamaster Aqua Terra – Global destinations are inscribed on an inner ring and on the flange. There is a 24-hour hesalite crystal ring in the centre of the dial, half in light blue for daytime and half in dark blue for night. Earth is depicted on a grade 5 titanium plate which is laser-ablated to create a relief map of the continents against blue ocean.
