Swiss Cheese: Feldmar’s Top Picks from Watches and Wonders 2023
Watches & Wonders: one of our favorite times of the year! This week, the watch world gathers in Geneva for one of the industry’s biggest events. Our fearless leader, Mr. Scott Meller AKA “The Big Cheese” – is brie-ing in all the gouda stuff from over the pond… because what’s feta than new watch releases?!
PARMIGIANI FLEURIER TONDA PF MINUTE RATTRAPANTE
Hot on the heels of last year’s GMT Rattrapante, Parmigiani Fleurier has added an even rarer complication to the Tonda PF line – the Minute Rattrapante! A world’s first, the innovative complication measures elapsed minutes, so while it’s not quite the same as a full chronograph, it serves some of the same functions.
IWC INGENIEUR 40MM
One of the most heavily anticipated releases is finally here! After a long absence, IWC has re-introduced the Genta-designed Ingenieur. Featuring the robust anti-magnetism of the original in an all-new 40mm case, the modern Ingenieur’s feature textured dials in black, white, or teal green!
TUDOR BLACK BAY GMT — WHITE DIAL
Another year, another round up of drool-worthy Black Bays! The all-new white opaline dial, puts a whole new spin on the fan-favorite Black Bay GMT. Dressed up on bracelet or down on Tudor’s famous fabric strap, this is a sure to be a modern classic.
ORIS PROPILOT X KERMIT
Possibly the most fun release from Watches & Wonders, the ProPilot X “Kermit” features the friendly frog’s face in the date window on the first of each month! The rest of the month, the extremely green dial calls to mind everybody’s favorite Muppet.
BULGARI OCTO ROMA
Before the wafer-thin Octo Finissimo, there was the Octo Roma. With a more rounded case and a bit more wrist presence, the Octo Roma line offers 100m of water resistance in a sub-10mm thick case. Impressive! Updated for 2023 with new Clous de Paris dials, these 41mm releases are the right watch for the moment.
ZENITH PILOT BIG DATE FLYBACK
To say we’re excited about the re-imagined Pilot lineup from Zenith would be an understatement. In particular, we’re eager to see the Big Date Flyback chronograph in person. With big lumed numerals and a distinctive date window, this is the classic aviator’s watch reborn.
TAG HEUER CARRERA CHRONOGRAPH
Rev your engines! Reimagined from the reverse panda 2447NS model, this black 39mm version of the TAG Heuer glass box encapsulates the Carrera’s signature design with a modern twist.
