Six Watches That Just Have a Little Extra


The watch industry has presented their new products online for the second year in a row. Watches & Wonders debuted new models from 38 brands, and we selected six among them that just had a little extra

Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-014

Patek Philippe used their first appearance on Watches & Wonders to debut the new edition of their legendary Nautilus. In 1976 designer Gérald Genta has given this watch all it needed to become the synonym for sporty elegance.

The new olive green color of the dial fits perfectly into the global trend of using green for dials, and takes over the iconic navy blue, part of what made the 5711 / 1A-010 so popular that the waiting time to purchase your unit was allegedly ten years. Patek Philippe CEO Thierry Stern explained this change by the trend of brands trying to surprise their loyal customers with new releases.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer

The Oyster Perpetual Explorer evolved from Rolex’s deep involvement with exploration. This watch goes where few people venture. Now in yellow Rolesor, a combination of Oystersteel and 18 ct yellow gold, a new-generation Explorer returns to its origins with a 36 mm case.

The new-generation Explorer set itself apart with a simple design and a highly legible black dial with large hour markers and characteristic 3, 6, 9 numerals. It is a tool watch, created to tell time accurately, whatever the circumstances. Long after the light dies, you can tell the time. The Explorer’s Chromalight hour markers and hands contain luminescent material that emits a lasting blue glow ensuring excellent legibility even in the dark. The new Explorer is equipped with calibre 3230 and has a power reserve of approximately 70 hours.

IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber XPL

From the days of pioneer flights to the times supersonic jet fighters, pilots have been operating in extreme conditions and cramped cockpits. Because of that, extraordinary robustness has always been one of the key functional requirements set before IWC pilot watches.

The innovative Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber XPL is the work of the new engineering department of IWC Experimental, which works on development of advanced materials and greater impact resistance. Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber XPL is the first IWC with a patented SPRIN-g PROTECT system, and on tests conducted at the University of Cambridge’s Cavendish Laboratory, the mechanism has survived accelerations greater than 30,000 g.

A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Perpetual Calendar

This is the first Lange 1 Perpetual Calendar model where that complication is not paired with another. That sounds crazy, we know – since Lange has been making the Lange 1 for twenty-seven years, and models with a perpetual calendar for twenty.

However, since the original Langematik Perpetual in 2001, this complication has always appeared associated with tourbillons and chronographs. The Lange 1 Perpetual Calendar is a true example of class and elegance, and it’s available in two versions: the classic version in rose gold with a gray dial, and the limited edition made in just 150 units, in white gold with a pink dial.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185

When you first lay your eyes on the new Jaeger-LeCoultre masterpiece, which brand CEO Catherine Rénier compares to concept cars, you will be overwhelmed with awe, admiration… and perhaps get the feeling this watch was made on another planet.

Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 is not just the most complicated Reverso ever made, it’s one of the most complex models ever made by the brand. A total of 11 complications and four dials make this watch a real artisan work of art, and it’s quite understandable it will be part of a limited series counting only 10 units. Finally, unlike some other models with all these features, the Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 is actually very wearable.

Ulysse Nardin UFO

When it comes to Ulysse Nardin, nothing is too out there – from the innovative and avant-garde design, state-of-the-art materials, innovative mechanisms, to the long and interesting history of the brand who have became famous for making unbelievably precise naval chronometers.

The new Ulysse Nardin UFO combines all of the above into a desk clock with a one-year power reserve described by the brand CEO Patrick Pruniaux as their vision of the naval chronograph for the year 2196. The model is part of a limited series and will be made in 75 units.
