April 2021 New Gen Releases (non Tudor or Rolex)

Recommended Posts

Glaude

Given there's already two dedicated thread for Rolex & Tudor :

 

 

Let's gather here the other new release from April 2021 in the gen world (and hopefully some of them soon in rep world too).

JLC

It's been talked about in other thread, but this is worth a good look to see how far JLC is able to push their movement making skill, still showing they are the best at it, period : https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/jaeger-lecoultre-reverso-quadriptyque-introducing

 

Bulgari

ZvXJIb.png

Really like those new Octo Finissmo, should be repped better than what is available IMO, they need some light

Those following one, not so much however

ZvXcJ5.png

 

Hublot : 

Haters gonna hate (© Ginger Swift) , but I do like that one

ZvdDWF.png

This following one is a bit too much for me however

ZvdZlt.png

Mixed feelings on that new Sang Bleu, better than the first one though (how about that for readability of the dial @Pesman ? :lol: )

ZvdjF2.png

If you want to go undercover in a bee hive

Zvd32E.png

 

Piaget :

Nothing fantastically new, always the thinest mechanical watches available, pretty impressive to look at

ZvdH6n.png

 

Tag Heuer :

ZvdKv3.png

Yawn ....

 

IWC

ZvdLkD.png

Absolutely love this ! 

Alongside this new release, some limited edition now in regular production and some regular produced model available in smaller form factor

 

Zenith

Not everyone cup of tea, but really dig the purple one, the orange/ginger can go get the clap from a dead ferret

ZvdaFP.png

 

Vacheron Constantin :

Splendid classic split second 

Zvdo6S.png

 

Panerai : 

Some classics, but overall not deviating from the Panerai recent series 

ZvdqvQ.png

ZvdOzL.png

That white one is splendid

ZvdYOR.png

This one is almost entirely recycled materials (guess you'll pay a premium for it...)

Zvdyk8.png

 

MontBlanc :

Meh ...

Zvd1VK.png

Someone at Mb R&D has been browsing ALS a bit too much but did not wanted to make it obvious

Zvdnav.png

 

ALS

Zvd8Gj.png

ZvdtA4.png

ZvdB8I.png

 

Cartier

Love those :

ZvdQvc.png

Lets see what we can make when we design a watch and drink a lot of booze at the same time 

ZvdpzX.png

 

Moser

Called the Mega Cool ... a bit boring 

ZvdCYi.png

Those are nice

Rado

Happy discussions, feel free to update this thread with other new releases

Good that nice post, see tag have firmly adopted the more premium colourways to fettle their floating batch..

Rado looks   like a .... BP ?    SHIT

Indeed the Octo is a cracking design. 

I must say Zenith are doing some great things, along with Hublot. You might not like it but they're  colourful and pushing boundries

Nothing that new to it, but just really well made, nice texture on the dial, the blue accent are just done well, very nice piece !

Thanks, I'm probably missing some releases, I just went with Hodinkee news feed, so anyone feel free to add more April 2021 novelties

That Rado isn't fantastic indeed, something wrong in the balance between the case and bracelet, dial is cloudy for no reason, that blancpain you posted is just so much better ! I find Blancplain to be nailing Chrono dial almost everytime, the Bathyscaphe chrono is so nicely done too

Too bad those Octo are really nice because they are so thin, handled the regular gen, and the titanium and thickness is what really make this watch, so probably no dice anytime soon in rep form (the available reps are really thick !)

@GenTLe Moved your comment in that topic for consistency :) 

Not really fan on that Green on the Nautilus, but it might grow on me

JLC makes some impressive watches, that is a real work of art.

Rado should stick to the ceramica scene, it's pretty iconic like popular sports / pilot / dress, ceramica is a class of its own. I really don't like the two tone PVD / Ceramica look at all. This Rado bracelet looks crappy, poor size and space PVD outer links with tiny ceramic midlinks.

 

Edit - I do like the exposed crown though, looks retro on sports / tool watches...

Agreed ! This isn't even their style to begin with, wonder why they ventured in that area

Hermes have been making some killer design for a couple of years now

I think those kind of watches are never gonna look good in photo, try taking a good pic of a transparent thing, without the proper lighting, it's almost impossible

I think those kind of watches are never gonna look good if you have eyes. Try closing your eyes. Imagine a nice watch instead. Pretend you're blind and it's actually almost presentable.

Is this what you meant?

Something quite right about simple when done in the best materials. I doubt these would be boring when sat on the wrist and the tactile is admired. I really love Moser's colorways (:blink:looking at you Hublot):

Hermes is nice, Octo with complications I am not sure but spiral Octo is fire.

My favourite is new Diver X, as always with UN we won't get a decent rep ffs.

I love the simplicity and perfect execution of Moser design, but calling it Super Cool ? I know they are excellent at trolling (look at their Apple watch like watch) but here I'm not so sure about that name

It's just that you're saying (and thinking) it with a French accent. "Super Cool" sounds super played out in French, but in Swiss German it sounds like "Zuperkoal" , which is dank af, and also happens to be my safe word. 

But yeah, that Swiss Alp (pple) watch is awesome, especially in vantablack!

Since this thread kind of turned into Releases 2021 anyway... Have you guys seen the new Panerai line-up? 

PAM01225 looks nice. Reminds me of PAM799 just in a bit more wearable size of 44mm.
