New Releases from Watches & Wonders 2021
David Rosas invites you to discover some of the main novelties of Watches and Wonders 2021, the digital show taking place in Geneva from 7 to 13 April. For the first time, 38 prestigious brands are coming together on a single platform (watchesandwonders.com), with customers and distribution partners.
The new Rolex Explorer II, Ref. 226570
Now updated with the new in-house calibre 3285. To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of this watch, the brand has launched a redesigned model, with a case profile that looks thinner, and equally thinner lugs, as we had seen on the Submariner.
RRP: 8.200 €
The two new 36mm Explorers
Another great novelty from the crown brand is the new Explorer, now 36mm in diameter, in two versions: in steel (Ref. 124270) and in two-tone Rolesor (Ref. 124273), in the classic combination of steel and yellow gold. A touch of luxury in this iconic model.
Ref. 124270 RRP: 6.150 €
Ref. 124273 RRP: 8.200 €
The new Datejust 36 dials
Datejust, a timeless classic watch, was also in the spotlight with the launch of new dials: olive green palms for the Oystersteel version (Ref. 126200), gold palm trees, or a fluted motif in the same tone, for the steel and yellow Rolesor gold model (Ref. 126233), and silver palms on the steel and Everose gold version (Ref. 126231).
Ref. 126200 RRP: 6.750 €
Ref. 126233 Palm Tree RRP: 10.650 €
Ref. 126233 Fluted Motif RRP: 11.250 €
Ref. 126231 RRP: 11.550 €
The Tudor Black Bay Chrono
This new release has drawn inspiration from vintage Daytona models! With a slimmer case than the model launched in 2017, and two dial options: black with white counters (M79360N-0001) and white with black counters (M79360N-0002). A must.
RRP: 5.000 €
Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925
A different watch, on the path of revivalism, is the new Fifty-Eight 925 (M79010SG-0001) with 925 silver case. A noble material that we haven't seen on a watch for many years. So chic!
RRP: 4.140 €
Overseas Dual Time Ref. 7900V/110A-B546
A watch for an active lifestyle, in steel, with three interchangeable bracelets (steel, leather and rubber) that make it customizable and suitable for any occasion.
RRP: 26.200 €
Submersible eLAB-ID PAM01225
The new watch from the Submersible collection is a pioneer in environmental responsibility and sustainable watch manufacturing. A total of 98.6% of its weight comes from materials integrating a large amount of recycled elements, such as EcoTitanium.
RRP: 60.000 €
Luminor Marina eSteel
It is the first model of the brand with an eSteel case, a new steel alloy with reduced environmental impact. Available with three dial colours: Blu Profondo (PAM01157), Grigio Roccia (PAM01358) and Smeraldo Green (PAM01356).
RRP: 8.500 €
Chanel J12 Electro
After 21 years this time the J12 is renewed by contrasting yet colorful details. We highlight the Electro Dream, a creation set with multicolour baguette-cut sapphires (Ref. H6828). 55 pieces limited edition.
RRP: 100.000 €
L.U.C QF Jubilee
The 39mm 2021 L.U.C QF Jubilee is the first timepiece from the L.U.C brand that will feature in stainless steel. Created as part of Chopard Manufacture’s 25th anniversary, with both COSC and Qualité Fleurier certified.
Ref. 168613-3001. 25-piece limited edition.
RRP: 14.500 €
L.U.C GMT One Black
In ceramised grade 5 titanium with black rubber strap.
Ref. 168579-3004. 250-piece limited edition.
RRP: 11.500 €
The new H08 line
Hermès got in on the scene with the H08, which it doesn't consider a sports watch (which it really isn't) but rather as a balanced "all-terrain" piece that won't feel out of place with a t-shirt and shorts or a suit. In five versions, with the automatic in-house caliber H1837.
The updated Aquaracer collection
The latest generation of the Aquaracer brings a number of improvements that include a thinner and lighter case. The most visually obvious changes are the texture of the bezel and the date at 6 o'clock with a circular magnifying glass ("cyclops"). The seven new versions include 43mm and 36mm variants and a retro model evoking a 1978 diver's watch, reference 844.
The brand presented 6 watches, in editions limited to 50 pieces, which mix distinctive techniques and materials, with appealing colors. We highlight the Flying Regulator Open Gear Pink Panther, ref. CH-8755-PIBK, and the Open Gear ReSec Paraiba, ref. CH-6923-TUBK.
Ref. CH-8755-PIBK RRP: 9.600 €
Ref. CH-6923-TUBK RRP: 9.800 €
Geosphere Limited Edition 1858
We highlight this watch, with three different combinations, and its two rotating hemispheres and worldtime manufacturing complication, which is a key piece of the collection.
The new theme celebrates Reinhold Messner's 2004 solo trek across the Gobi Desert - 2000 kilometres of extreme temperatures and incredible adventure.
