New Watches

This post features a few noteworthy recent releases.


Time Pyramid TourbillonThe A&S 8615 movement is built on three levels with the tourbillon, which carries subsidiary seconds, and the two power-reserve indicators superposed by the sapphire crystal hour dial, itself crowned with a ring to indicate the minutes.


Royal Oak Self-Winding ChronographIn order to adapt the Royal Oak's octagonal forms to the new 38mm case, watchmakers have rethought the Grande Tapisserie-patterned dial. A rhodium treatment ensures that the three chronograph counters and small seconds stand out against the anthracite dial.


Fifty Fathoms Barakuda Back in the 1960s, the brand supplied the German Navy with Fifty Fathoms watches via Barakuda, a manufacturer and distributor of diving equipment. Now the watchmaker is reviving a civilian equivalent of its legendary dive watch as a limited edition with a distinctly vintage air.


Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-EditionNearly identical to the original 1959 watch, this model also features a few concessions to modernity in the increased water-resistance (now 30 metres), Super-LumiNova® on the dial and Breitling's new B09 calibre; a manual-winding movement inspired by the renowned B01.


Autavia Isograph Autavia is back in seven cockpit-inspired iterations including this one in bronze complete with a smoky-effect green dial and a black ceramic bezel. Only the word Isograph on the dial reveals the presence of the brand's carbon-composite balance spring, part of the chronometer-certified Calibre 5.
