New releases from Blancpain, Corum, Louis Erard and more

Pietro Pilla

This year is quite special for certain watch collectors. On February 29, just before midnight, perpetual calendar owners eagerly awaited the magical ‘flipping’ of their complication – eager to see if their PC would accurately reflect the special leap year. And, in honour of this day, Blancpain properly celebrated the occasion by introducing a new perpetual calendar. Following a different trend, Corum is joining the celebration of the Lunar New Year (again, you can find its first entry here) and Louis Erard launched two incredible (and affordable) guillochè dial models. You can also find a first for IWC in their new collaboration with Mercedes and a late addition to the turquoise party by Nomos with the Club Campus. Discover these newcomers below. Enjoy!

Blancpain Villeret Quantième Perpétuel

Blancpain Villeret Quantieme Perpetuel

  • Blancpain follows the success of the colourway released for the Lunar New Year celebration in a new iteration of its perpetual calendar.
  • The rose gold is paired with a sunray brushed olive green dial, with hands and applied numerals in the same metal as the case.
  • It features a new patented under-lug corrector system, which enables calendar indications to be adjusted simply by pressing with a finger – much easier for the wearer.

IWC Pilot’s Watch Performance Chronograph 41

Pilot’s Watch Performance Chronograph 41 on stand

  • While IWC is usually known for its pilot watches, in this recent collaboration with Mercedes, the brand releases for the first time a proper racing chronograph.
  • The model is available with either a titanium or Ceratanium case, but what makes it suitable for racing is the presence of a tachymeter scale on the ceramic bezel.
  • Matching bracelets for both materials are a nice touch, but rubber straps in different colours fit the case for a more sporty vibe.

Corum Golden Bridge Dragon Masterpiece

Corum Golden Bridge Dragon Masterpiece

  • Corum releases a one-of-a-kind timepiece, built on the platform of the iconic Golden Bridge to celebrate the Lunar New Year that has recently started.
  • The 43m white gold case serves as a canvas for the sculpted dragon dominating the skeletonised dial.
  • Both the bezel and the lugs are set with baguette-cut diamonds, totalling 96 diamonds, with a total weight of over six carats.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Tideograph


  • Baume & Mercier reveal their first Riviera complication of many due to debut in 2024, the Riviera Tideograph.
  • Also known as the Maréographe, it features a tide disc that can be used to track the ocean’s roughly 12-hour tide cycle.
  • A push-button at 4 o’clock makes it possible to adjust the tide disc.

Louis Erard Excellence Petite Seconde Guilloché Anthracite

Louis Erard Petite Seconde Guillochè MAIN

  • Louis Erard presents a new model with a double guillochè dial, available in two different sizes and colours.
  • The anthracite and blue version measures 39 mm in diameter and the contrast between the different finishes and shades makes the dial come alive, especially when natural light shines upon it.
  • The larger 42 mm version features the same multiple finishes on the dial but in a completely monochrome, anthracite-coloured version for a more understated result.

Nomos Club Campus Nonstop Red and Endless Blue

Nomos Club Campus Endless Blue Nonstop Red Desktop

  • The Nomos Club Campus in Endless Blue is a late but welcome entry into the Tiffany frenzy of 2020.
  • Club Campus watches can be had in 36mm or 38mm cases, with or without sapphire display casebacks and a free engraving.
  • They’re amongst some of the most price-approachable Glashütte-made watches you can buy, beginning at A$1,870.

Bulova Classic Surveyor

Bulova Classic Surveyor

  • Bulova presents four new additions to the Classic Surveyor collection, three of them in stainless steel and one in PVD yellow gold.
  • The stainless steel models feature a pistachio green, forest green or burgundy dial, respectively paired with a brown leather strap for the first and a stainless steel bracelet for the other two.

  • The Berlin-based watchmaker introduces his most affordable creation yet.
  • With three colours to choose from, the frosted brass dials proudly display the watch’s German origins.

Girard-Perregaux Free Bridge Meteorite

Girard Perregaux Free Bridge Meteorite

  • The futuristic look of the new Girard-Perregaux Free Bridge Meteorite elegantly blends codes of the past and future together.
  • While the stars of the show are still the three bridges holding the barrel, handset, and balance wheel, two meteorite inserts decorate the sides of the symmetric dial.
  • The watch is powered, like all the redesigned Free Bridges, by re-engineered in-house automatic calibre GP01800, beating at 4 Hertz with a power reserve of 54 hours.

Serica Ref. 8315 Travel Chronometer

serica 8315 travel chronometer brown feature

  • Serica brings back the Ref. 8315 Travel Chronometer in a new colourway that matches desert red and ivory on the bezel over a brown dial.
  • The vintage inspiration is evident in both the dial layout and case proportions, which feature mixed finishings adding some spice to the (already) spicy mix.
  • The inspiration from the past continues with the strap, made of textured rubber imitating pigskin and aggressively tapering from 20 to 15 mm for an authentic vintage feel.
