Chopard – L.U.C XPS 1860

Chopard – L.U.C XPS 1860

The discreet and elegant L.U.C XPS 1860 is a tribute to the very first watch in the L.U.C collection, which was unveiled 20 years ago, when the Chopard Manufacture was first set up. Exquisitely finished like its predecessor, the L.U.C XPS 1860 has contemporary dauphine hands and elegant applied indices. Its 18K pink gold case encloses the automatic P-96.01-L calibre, the first movement created by Chopard, which is wound by a solid 22K gold micro-rotor. The ultra-slim L.U.C SPX 1860 offers hour, minute, seconds and date functions. Like all L.U.C watches with a second hand, this new watch has been awarded chronometer certification by the COSC. It has also earned the Geneva Hallmark. The L.U.C XPS 1860 is available in a limited edition of 100 pieces.

Corum – Bubble Tourbillon GMT

The Bubble watch, a mainstay of Corum’s catalogue, is available this year with grand complications. The Bubble Tourbillon Chronograph, which brings tourbillon and chronograph functions together for the first time, is driven by the CO398 calibre, an automatic movement exclusive to Corum. The tourbillon, which is visible at 10 o’clock, is shaped like the key in Corum’s logo. The column wheel chronograph counts seconds via a centrally mounted second hand, while the chronograph minutes are displayed on a counter at 6 o’clock. Just five of these 18K rose gold Bubble Tourbillon Chronographs will be made.

Armin Strom – Manual Cognac

Watchmakers are blessed with vivid imaginations, constantly vying with each other to come up with the most original ideas for new timepieces. The latest unconventional example is Armin Strom’s Manual Cognac. As a result of a partnership between the independent watchmaker and Wealth Solutions, a distributor for the brand in Poland and collector of exceptional products, the watch features a sealed sapphire disc on its dial at 5 o’clock, containing a few drops of 1762 Gautier Cognac. The Manual Cognac is available in a 43.3 mm steel, rose gold or titanium case, and is driven by an automatic manufacture movement. A bunch of grapes is hand-carved onto the baseplate, which is visible at the back of the watch. As you would expect, production is limited. Just 40 will be available.

Bulgari – Octo Ultranero Finissimo Tourbilllon

This year’s model from Bulgari’s legendary Octo collection is dressed in a 40 mm ultra-light matt black DLC-treated titanium case with rose gold accents and a black lacquered dial. The Octo Ultranero is fitted with the slimmest tourbillon movement in the world, the Bulgari BLV 268 Finissimo, 1.95 mm thick with a power reserve of 52 hours.

Chronoswiss – Sirius Flying Regulator

This new reference features the iconic Flying Regulator guillochage, a graceful central minute hand and subdials for the hours and seconds. The guillochage on the dial is accentuated by the silvered, black or deep midnight blue dial. The 40 mm timepiece, whose manufacture C.122 calibre is visible through the sapphire caseback, is available in stainless steel, rose gold or DLC-treated steel.  The watch comes with either an elegant and dressy alligator strap, or embossed calfskin for a sportier look.

The Gumball 3000, because it’s known, started life on British shores, but has become a truly global event, with the course shifting every year to keep things interesting. The rally, which hasn’t avoided controversy because its foundation in 1999, is popular with celebrities and wealthy civilians, all of whom drive the car of their decision on the public street course in pursuit of glory or the trip of a lifetime. How then, will a project that aims to inject some of the Gumball Rally’s characteristic chaos to the brand fare?When I heard about this triple-header release, I didn’t have a clue what to expect. The Gumball Rally seemed a very “out there” selection of collaboration for such a strait-laced brand, but one I was anticipating seeing. I kind of expected that Armin Strom goes down the wacky Swatch course and totally trick out these timepieces with bold, goofy images and eye-popping fonts rather than the (understandably) more controlled approaches of brands like Omega with all the America’s Cup Watch or even Tag Heuer using the Formula One bits. What resulted was something in between that could either strike the right balance or leave you feeling a little flat.The problem with pulling off a celebratory collection like this is getting enough occasion branding to the piece with no becoming a grotesque billboard. With this group, Armin Strom have managed to incorporate the Gumball 3000 script logo into the design, but does this work? Do these watches have enough Gumball to send the right message, or does the labelling jar a lot with its fancy framework? Let us take a peek at the collection, piece by piece to learn.
