Best New Watch Releases of 2022: #FeldmarFamily Staff Picks

Watch fans the world-over rejoiced this week as watchmaking’s top brands gathering in Geneva for the Watches & Wonders event. While large-scale industry events in Switzerland are nothing new, recent years have brought about a new paradigm thanks to COVID and before that, the decline of Baselworld, the previous heavyweight show. So with in-person events back on the rise, there was much anticipation around the 2022 W&W event and so far it has lived up to the hype! Brands like Tudor, Zentih, and IWC have all unveiled the latest and greatest additions to their collections while Breitling announced a refresh to its Navitimer line the day before the show.

With so many new hot watches, we asked the team here at the store which watches they liked the best. Read on for their thoughts on 6 of the top releases so far!

Lorel’s Pick: Zenith Chronomaster Open

“For 2022, Zenith keeps the heat on with a new addition to the Chronomaster line. The all-new Open sizes in at 39.5mm – smaller than the its 41mm Sport cousin but larger than the 38mm Chronomaster Original. And with an aperture integrated into the subdials, it allows the wearer to peer at the world famous El Primero movement inside.”


Scott’s Pick: Tudor Black Bay Pro 39MM

“When images of the Black Bay Pro began circulating, the watch world went bonkers. A consummate tool watch, the Pro draws on a proud heritage of adventurous watches built for exploration. The yellow GMT hand plays with the fixed 24-hour bezel and available on bracelet, hybrid leather, or strap, the Black Bay Pro is as versatile as it is robust.”


Fred’s Pick: IWC Pilot’s Chronograph Top Gun Edition Lake Tahoe

“Colorful watches have loomed large this year but what about monochrome styles? IWC expands the Pilot’s Chronograph collection with several new designs but our favorite hits closer to home with the Top Gun Edition Lake Tahoe’s white ceramic case. Gear up for summer with this sporty chronograph!”


Jamie’s Pick: Parmigiani Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante

“The Rattrapante is a rare complication and of course the wizards at Parmigiani Fleurier would be the ones to bring it into play in 2022! When leaving on a trip, globetrotters can use the side-pusher to advance the silver hour hand to match time in their destination while the gold hand stays on home time. At the end of the trip, a quick push of the gold-capped crown brings both hands into alignment, transforming the Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante into a dressy two-hander.”


Ben’s Pick: Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43

“The Navitimer collection got a big update this week with over 30 new references! Colorful dials abound in 41, 43, and 46mm sizes but the hottest is surely the Ice Blue 43mm. Available on bracelet or leather strap, these are cooler than cool!”


Vivi’s Pick: Oris ProPilot X Calibre 400

“Oris celebrates the Pro Pilot collection with the addition of their incredible 5-day caliber 400 movement. Inside a 39mm titanium case, the new Pro Pilots bring angular styling and fun colors to an already great watch. This is a modern update that’s as fun as it functional and with an industry-leading 10-year warranty, you’ll have peace of mind long into the future.”
