Summer is always a great pretext to ditch monochrome in favour of brighter, sunnier shades. With more and more watchmakers lavishing colour on their dials, the opportunity is too good to miss.
A year after its official launch, Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet continues to evolve with five new self-winding date, hour, minute and second references and five new self-winding chronograph models, with complex lacquered dials and a palette of deep colours.
Proposed as 13 new references, the TAG Heuer Carrera packs its sporting DNA into a skeleton dial with three counters inside a modular 43mm case with tachymeter scale. A latest-generation Heuer 02 in-house chronograph movement completes the line-up.
Introduced in the summer of 2017, the 36mm Patrimony returns in a white gold case. Inside is Vacheron Constantin's Calibre 2450 Q6.
Introduced in 2002, the much-loved combination of a complete calendar and GMT function prompted a raft of releases. This Quantième Complet GMT, part of the Blancpain Villeret collection, is the latest interpretation, now with the brand's patented under-lug correctors.
Bronze, vintage and military: a winning combination in the current climate and one that Anonimo has down to a tee. The Italian brand has made a fresh start in Switzerland. A similar destiny awaits Vulcain, now in the same hands.
After grand complications such as its Minute Repeater and Spin Time, the Moon Mysterious Flying Tourbillon is Louis Vuitton's interpretation of the mystery movements that astonished audiences in the late nineteenth century.
