With the fall season finally upon us, watch brands have been really busy with their latest release. These timepieces are not just gorgeous faces but extremely meticulous pieces of horological engineering. To add the cherry on top, they reflect the brands’ ardent efforts that went into making them in the first place.
Eccentric Swiss Watches That you Just Have To Check Out
SevenFriday P3C/04 “Red Carbon”
SevenFriday is that rebellious child of the Swiss watch industry’s that does not know any limits, or at least, does not acknowledge them at all. The all-new bold, eccentric, and sturdy P3C/04 “Red Carbon” edition is exactly something that would fit the picture. SevenFriday does what it does best and mixes over the top designing along with a glaring red colour tone. So typical, I tell you.
Be it the usage of carbon fibre on the animation ring, the red resin highlights, or the red lacquered screw-down crown partnering with the red competition-strength seat belt material strap, everything about this watch is just screams fabulous. The timepiece incites a feeling of awe and excitement in a way that it can be interpreted as visual chemistry. Oh, and the cheery on the cake is that it is pretty pocket friendly too.
Omega Seamaster Diver 300 M Chronograph Gold Titanium Tantalum
The world of watchmaking has seen its fair share of two-tone watches. It is high time we start normalizing three-tone watches. Omega is actually a few steps ahead of the curve. The Swiss luxury watchmaker has recently added the Seamaster Diver 300 M Chronograph Gold Titanium Tantalum to its arsenal and we watch enthusiasts could not be happier to see such a masterclass from the horology royalty.
The bezel is built out of a hard-to-work-with metal called tantalum. The case is built from titanium whilst the bezel ring, the crown, and lastly, the helium valve made of Sedna Gold. The wave pattern design engraved on the dial of the watch complements the timepiece’s aesthetics and at the same time it adds to the brand’s roots as a tool watch that has seen its fair share of seas. The watch is powered by the calibre 9900, a METAS chronometer certified mechanism and is limited to just 2,500 pieces. I would suggest you hurry up.
Bianchet Tourbillon B 1.618 Openwork
Now, for those who have not heard of Bianchet, it is a Swiss watchmaker known for Tonneau shaped watches. The Neuchâtel based luxury Swiss watch brand was co-founded by Rodolfo & Emmanuelle F. Bianchet. This reference is the brand’s very first released and it is drool-worthy. The watch takes inspiration from the work of Italian mathematician Fibonnaci and his golden ratio 1.618 which has been greatly applied and applied in various fields of work such as art, architectural and even finance. The Tourbillon B 1.618 Openwork puts on display a tonneau-shaped case with an open-worked dial that showcases the movement through plates and bridges built from titanium.
The 43 mm x 49 mm watch is powered by an in-house manufactured movement, an open-worked tourbillon mechanism which offers an astounding 110-hour power reserve. Read that again. That’s not it, though. The watch also features shock resistance up to 6000 Gs.
