In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, which takes place in October, Zenith will be donating 20% of the proceeds from the sales of the Zenith Chronomaster Original Pink to the Susan G. Komen organization. The watch comes in Zenith’s 38 mm Chronomaster Original case and a special pink sunburst brushed dial. An in-house automatic El Primero caliber 3600 chronograph movement, which can measure elapsed times with 1/10th of a second accuracy, and has a 60-hour power reserve, drives the time, date, and chronograph functions. $10,300
IWC recently debuted the Portofino 39 Chronograph which comes in a 39 mm x 13 mm stainless steel case with a minimalist silvery-white dial, with rhodium-plated applied indices and hands, and with no date function. A sapphire caseback reveals the in-house caliber 69355 automatic movement that’s decorated with Geneva stripes and perlage finishing. The power reserve is 46 hours. An 18 mm lug width quick change beige calfskin leather strap is standard. $7,300
Audemars Piguet has announced a new variation of the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in blue ceramic. The case measures 41 mm x 9.5 mm and houses the thin (4.5 mm) and complicated (374 components) caliber 5134 automatic 2.75Hz perpetual calendar movement which has 38 jewels and a 40-hour power reserve. The movement is visible through an open sapphire caseback. The watch is not technically considered water resistant, with a mere 20-meter depth rating. Blue ceramic is used for the case and bracelet, with a titanium AP folding clasp to secure it to the wrist. A blue dial with “Grande Tapisserie” pattern, blue counters, white gold applied hour-markers, Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating, and a blue inner bezel complete the new blue aesthetic. $100,000+
