Introducing the Richard Mille RM 53-01 Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough

Six years after releasing its first polo watch developed with Argentinean polo professional Pablo Mac Donough (RM 53), Richard Mille (RM) has announced its successor at SIHH 2018. It’s called the RM 53-01 Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough and like its predecessor, this new watch is designed to survive the abuse of polo. But, unlike its closed-dial predecessor which was limited to just 15-pieces, this new model has a dial that is protected by sapphire glass (laminated sapphire glass to be exact).

It’s handsome and Mille fans are already going nuts about it on Instagram.

Introducing the F.P. Journe Vagabondage III, with instantaneous jumping seconds

On the 19th of December 2016, F.P. Journe sent out its wishes for the 2016-2017 holiday season, and teased a new timepiece that was going to be revealed on January 16, 2017. The video showed three discs, two of which were in close proximity and jumped instantaneously, and many – us included – took this to mean that the brand was planning to unveil the hotly anticipated Vagabondage III. Sure enough, that’s exactly what the brand revealed earlier this month.

Vagabondage III completes F.P. Journe’s planned trifecta.

After the debut of the outstanding Récital 18 Shooting Star at SIHH 2016, we were confident that Bovet would delight us with even more intricate and complicated timepieces this year, in honor of its 195th anniversary. We were pleased to hear then that the brand announced three new timepieces at SIHH 2017, including this, the Virtuoso VIII 10-Day Flying Tourbillon Big Date.

Bovet’s watches are pretty distinctive in their appearance.
