From luxury timepieces to connected wearables – these are WIRED’s favourite watches
ORIS BIG CROWN POINTER DATE
Initially developed in 1938, this new Pointer Date from Oris comes in new 40mm and 36mm versions and make use of an alternative date function that consists of a separate red-tipped hand that indicates the day pointing at a date scale on the outer edge of the dial. The 5-minute marks on the dial are printed with Super-LumiNova. Both versions come on either a steel bracelet or an environmentally-friendly leather strap made using a natural vegetable tanning process that doesn’t require harmful metals.
PANERAI L’ASTRONOMO – LUMINOR 1950 TOURBILLON MOON PHASES EQUATION OF TIME GMT
The L’Astronomo is one of the most complicated Panerais there has been: a 50mm brushed titanium tourbillon with displays for the equation of time, a second time zone, and (for the first time in a Panerai) moon phases. The hand-wound skeletonised movement has a four-day power reserve and below the central axis is a linear scale that shows the difference between solar time (time measured by a sundial) and mean solar time (time displayed on watches and clocks). If customisation is your want, owners can choose the material and finish of the case, the colour of the hands and that of the Super-LumiNova, as well as the colour and the material of the strap.
