Breitling Aerospace Red Arrows
Breitling introduced the Aerospace, a cutting-edge, multipurpose pilot’s chronograph with cutting-edge Swiss technology, back in 1985. The Royal Air Force Red Arrows Aerobatic Team is honored, but The Aerospace Red Arrows do the same routines as before. Breitling, the only luxury watch company permitted by the RAF to use the logos of their renowned aerobatics squad, has created a timepiece fit for the air force. It is limited to 350 pieces and comes with a SuperQuartz caliber that has been officially approved by chronometers, a user-friendly control system, and crown-activated features including a 1/100th of a second chronograph, countdown timer, and second-time zone. Additionally, Breitling has produced a unique commemorative coin authorized by the Ministry of Defense to be given with each watch. Learn more on Breitling’sBreitling’s website.
Seiko Prospex Heritage Turtle 1968 Re-Interpretation
The curved and angular back of the marine creature gives this watch its owners the moniker “turtle” for its shape. This useful design is a contemporary interpretation of the original 1968 “Turtle,” and it is accompanied by an elegant yet sporty five-row bracelet. The bracelet’s newly developed clasps match the case’s slim profile, and the date window is placed so that it is legible without obstructing the indices. Learn more on Seiko’s website.
A Lange & Soehne 1815 Rattrapante
The 1815 Rattrapante from A Lange & Soehne is a stylish watch with a calibre that is hand-assembled twice and finely finished in the manner of Ferdinand Adolph Lange. In addition, the manufacture calibre L101.2 has a screw balance, screwed gold chatons, and a hand-engraved balance cock. Bridges and cocks are constructed of untreated German silver elsewhere.

TAG Heuer Monaco
One of Tag Heuer’s most iconic designs for the past 50 years has been the rule-breaking square-shaped Monaco chronograph, which debuted in 1969. The company is producing a 500-piece, never-before-seen version this year. The dial of the 39-mm TAG Heuer Monaco Purple Dial Limited Edition has a distinctive gradient from lighter purple in the center to darker purple at the edge. The case is made of fine-brushed and polished steel. Other features include white Super- LumiNova-coated rhodium-plated indexes and hands, and the two black opaline sub-counters discreetly accentuate the unexpectedly misty look.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore
Five new Royal Oak Offshore references have been unveiled by Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet. These references are interpreted in 37 and 43 mm sizes and a variety of materials, including two models in titanium, two in gem-set 18-carat white gold, and one in black ceramic. The new Royal Oak Offshore models honor Audemars’ strong ties to the music industry (it has frequently worked with musicians) with a Tapisserie dial that mimics equalizer patterns, knurled-textured studs that are reminiscent of jack plugs, and crown guards that are modeled after mixing console faders. These self-winding hours, minutes, and seconds models have bigger bevels and a sapphire crystal that is bent along the 6 to 12 o’clock axis, giving them a vibrant, pop-style appearance.
