New Watches To Look Out For  

From timeless watches to robust divers, dependable field watches or dynamic sporty chronographs, here’s the latest in top timepieces to add to your wishlist

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean ‘Deep Black’ ETNZ Edition  



 As the official timekeeper of the 37th America’s Cup that is due in Barcelona next year, Omega has crafted the Seamaster Planet Ocean ‘Deep Black’ ETNZ Edition — shrouded in the colours of the Emirates Team New Zealand, the Cup’s reigning champions. Crafted entirely from matte black ceramic, this edition of the iconic diving watch offers a dramatic 600m of water resistance and several racing chronograph features — crystal-clear visibility being a high priority on this 45.5mm, blacked-out-turquoise-highlight reference. 


The bezel insert’s 60-minute scale is finished in white enamel — and so is the seconds’ hand counterweight, cleverly wrought in the silhouette of the actual tournament trophy — the ‘Auld Mug’. Beneath the opaque, team logo-emblazoned caseback is Omega’s trusty 9900 calibre, slightly modified to suit the watch’s Regatta timing function and good for 60 hours of power.  


TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph Night Driver  



  TAG Heuer pays homage to the Singapore Grand Prix’s iconic legacy with the limited-edition Monaco Chronograph ‘Night Driver’. While modern Formula 1 has evolved dramatically since the original Monaco’s 1969 debut, this watch commemorates the sport’s shift to night races, which began with the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix.  


This 600-piece limited edition departs from the line’s recent skeletonised dials for enhanced readability in driving conditions. By day, the anthracite grey opaline dial exudes a vintage charm reminiscent of vintage Monaco chronographs. As night falls, the dial takes on a luminescent transformation, with light blue accents on the counters powered by Super-Luminova.  


The watch features a grade 5 titanium case with a matte sandblasted finish and a diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating and boasts 100m of water resistance and a black calfskin rally-style strap, paying homage to Heuer’s racing chronographs from the seventies. Inside, the Calibre 02 automatic movement ensures reliable performance throughout a race weekend, with an impressive 80-hour power reserve.  


  Zenith Defy Extreme Carl Cox  



  The DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition by ZENITH, limited to 100 pieces and exclusively available from ZENITH boutiques, draws inspiration from DJing and the UK rave legend’s long legacy in electronic music. Crafted in a 45mm matte-finished steel case, it features yellow gold pusher protectors and a dodecagonal bezel. The open dial’s chronograph counters resemble miniature vinyl records, with turntable switch-style graphics framing the Zenith typeface. The El Primero 9004 calibre, visible through the open dial and sapphire case back, offers true 1/100th of a second measurement. The star-shaped oscillating weight and main plate are specially decorated in black for this edition. The watch comes with a matte-finished steel bracelet, a black rubber strap and a black Velcro strap, easily interchangeable with the built-in quick strap-change mechanism.  


Carl F. Bucherer Manero Peripheral 40mm  



 Carl F. Bucherer’s popular Manero Peripheral watch has been given a new lease of life with a vibrant new colour palette. The new 40mm models feature circular brushed dials in blue, salmon, brown and green, all with black small seconds and silver white and black dials with (respectively) black and silver white small seconds. The new colourways are a nod to the natural world and add a touch of modernity to the classic Manero Peripheral design, which is now 14 years of age. 


While the dials and strap (which are now available in casual, comfortable hybrid rubber instead of alligator leather) are immediately noticeable changes, the case remains largely the same — retaining the elegant, sweeping proportions that the watchmaker is known for. Along with the case, the movement within — the signature peripheral-powered CFB A2050 — remains the same; visible through a generous caseback window and offering 55 hours of power reserve.  


Panerai Due Luna TuttOro PAM01504  



  Panerai’s latest appearance at Watches and Wonders 2023 in Shanghai included new dress watch additions — a brief parting of ways from the brand’s otherwise sport/military-themed releases this year. The Due Luna TuttOro PAM01504 pictured here is a prime example — representing the Maison’s first moonphase model with a Panerai Goldtech finish — using an alloy of platinum and copper for a rich, red-hued tone on a lighter, slimmer 38mm profile.  


The mother-of-pearl dial adds to the watch’s lunar imagery — orchestrated by a disc depicting the moon against a midnight blue sky at the 3 o’clock position. On the rear, Panerai’s oft-seen P.900/MP calibre is visible, which offers a robust 72 hours of power reserve.  


Tudor Black Pelagos FXD  



  Initially developed as a ‘unit watch’ for a prestigious US SpecOps unit within the US Navy, the Tudor Black Pelagos FXD has now been released to the general public. Reminiscent of the Marine Nationale FXD released in 2021, the watch is fashioned with a 12.7mm thick, 42mm titanium case and a fixed lug design. The black FXD features red text at the bottom of the dial to reduce visual clutter and the matte black dial complements a matte black bezel insert. Unlike the Marine Nationale version, this bezel operates in a single direction, measuring elapsed time traditionally.   


The watch comes with a new khaki strap featuring a red stripe, with robust hook and loop portions. Powering the Tudor Black Pelagos FXD is the COSC-certified manufacturer calibre MT5602. While it doesn’t have METAS certification, its performance remains impressive, reflecting Tudor’s commitment to quality in its modern dive watch line-up.  


Baume & Mercier Titanium Riviera 39mm  



  The B&M Riviera now comes in a sleek 39mm format, featuring a distinctive smoke-grey translucent dial and angular case. While the watch features impressive overall finishing, the grey rubber strap feels a bit out of place when compared to the elegant gold-black case and dial markers, perhaps making it a better match for the 42mm version’s dark blue variant.  


The watch’s translucent sides offer a view of the in-house COSC-certified Baumatic movement, providing an impressive 120-hour power reserve. With its toolless strap-swap system, premium materials, sapphire crystal and Super-LumiNova-coated hands and markers, this timepiece stands out as one of the best enthusiast-focused watches in the 39mm category.  


IWC Pilot’s Watch Automatic 41 Black Aces  



  The Pilot’s Watch Automatic 41 Black Aces draws inspiration from a model developed within the Professional Pilot’s Watches Programme for members of Strike Fighter Squadron 41 of the US Navy, known as the ‘Black Aces’. Developed in collaboration with the squadron’s pilots, the timepiece features a 41mm case made of scratch-resistant black zirconium oxide ceramic and a custom-made white, fully luminous dial, enabling complete visibility, even in pitch-black conditions. The squadron patch, resembling the black ace of spades, is imprinted at 6 o’clock, while the titanium caseback features an engraving of the squadron’s standard F/A-18E/F Super Hornet jet against a backdrop of spades. Powered by the IWC-manufactured 32100 calibre with automatic winding and a 72-hour power reserve, the watch is notably resistant to sudden air pressure drops though its water resistance is an understandably weak 6 bar.  


TAG Heuer Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche  



  The year 1963 was pretty radical for two incredible inventions that shaped their respective fields in groundbreaking ways — it is, after all, the birth year of both the Heuer Carrera and Porsche 911. Both legendary brands have decided to commemorate the epic pair’s 60th anniversary with an exhilarating take on what’s come to be the blueprint for modern racing watches — the all-new Carrera Chronosprint.   


The watch takes its heritage quite seriously; the red portion of the dial, for instance, is swept by the second hand slightly faster — in exactly 9.1 seconds — scoring the 0-100kmph time for the original 911. Largely inspired by seventies car dashboards, the 42mm case frames classic sports car RPM gauges and also TAG Heuer’s well-received glassbox design for the sapphire dome on top, with an open sapphire caseback displaying the unique Chronosprint TH20-08 movement.  


  Longines Spirit Zulu Time 39mm  



  The latest in a long line of new-and-improved travelling watches across the horological landscape, Longines has followed up with their scaled-down Spirit Zulu Time in 39mm — offering an elegant take on their classic sports-pilot’s watch formula. Considerably more compact than the original 42mm timepiece, the new Zulu Time comes with a leather strap or steel quick-change bracelet as well as a range of colours — black with blue accents, blue on blue and a remarkable black-gold accented finish with a deep green outer bezel, pictured here. Equipped with the calibre L844.4, it comes COSC-certified with 72 hours of power reserve and a ‘flyer’ GMT movement that offers serious quality of life to anyone who switches time zones often.  


  Seiko Bruce Lee Limited Edition 5 Sports  



  Since the late sixties, watchmaking titan Seiko’s 5 Sports collection has been synonymous with performance and longevity — and to celebrate the 5 Sports’ 55th anniversary, the Japanese watchmaker has unveiled a special Bruce Lee Limited Edition, inspired by the iconic actor, martial artist and Seiko collector’s legacy. The dial showcases a dragon personally illustrated by Lee during his lifetime, while the bezel features characters invoking tenets of Jeet Kune Do — Lee’s personally developed martial art. Limited to 15,000 examples, the watch also features Seiko’s automatic calibre 4R36 and an impressive 10-bar water resistance rating.  


Fossil Carraway Stainless Steel  



  Luxury goods stalwart Fossil recently undertook a massive rebranding exercise, part of which involves a retrospective refresh of the brand’s line of vintage-themed watches. The stainless-steel Carraway is a particularly well-designed example — channelling Cartier Tank influences with a few subtle twists of their own.  


Designed for daily wear, the curved caseback frames a double-layered dial (with serif Roman numerals) between rounded, flanged edges — softening one of classic-era horology’s favourite early 20th-century designs into a versatile, easily wearable and accessible avatar. Buyers can also choose between silver-tone, gold-tone and duotone 7-link bracelets or the pictured nubuck-lined brown leather strap.  


  Armani Exchange AX1952 Black  



  Straying in the opposite direction from Fossil’s Carraway is AX’s latest range of three-hand date stainless steel watches, the above being a key example. The luxury brand’s new Fall 2023 collection’s AX1952 goes big with a 44mm case featuring minimalist design cues brought together by an eye-catching, wave-textured ombre dial. Also available in gold and silver, with accompanying blue and green dials, the range also features 10 bar of water resistance and a rotating bezel.  


  Casio A1100 Series  



 The Casio Vintage 1100 series takes a cosmic voyage to the 1970s while paying homage to the iconic 52QS-14B model, the beloved of Casio aficionados. This revival piece boasts a full-metal case with hairline and mirror finishes, replicating the oblong front-button design of the 52QS-14B, along with retro-style round steel buttons on the front panel. The mode indicators are subtly engraved, adding elegance. The metallic bracelet band combines retro luxury with comfort, and the mineral glass protects the dial from scratches.  The Casio A1100 series offers black, silver and gold variants. Each model features IP finishing on the case and band, and a throwback green electronic display against a black backdrop.
