Despite the current state of affairs surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the world of watches is still giving us a reason to smile and stay inspired.
In our latest update, we’re looking into the new releases of Panerai, Longines, and many more.
One of the common themes you will find in this list is black watches. This is thanks to the likes of IWC and H. Moser & Cie, both of whom have released new watches draped in all-black. Longines, however, has introduced a new lineup of timepieces to expand its DolceVita collection.
Aside from that, the Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda Tondagraphe Tourbillon is only the third of its kind to be introduced since its inception in 2009. Last but not least, Panerai’s latest limited-edition timepiece features a laser-printed 3D case. All these and more below for the latest updates in the world of watches.

Two new dials in white and blue are making its way into the Longines DolceVita collection. Both of the latest additions will be in a rectangular case, which drew inspiration from a model from the 1920s. There is also an XL version of the watch, suitable for men at 47mm. You can also choose to have either stainless steel or a leather strap in the same colour tone to match.

This is the latest Tonda Tondagraphe Tourbillon to come out from Parmigiani Fleurier with the first making its debut back in 2009. It carries the same slate-coloured dial but with a more aesthetically pleasing look with its Grain de riz (French for grain of rice) guilloché work. Rose gold is the main colour scheme of the watch, evident on the case as well as appliques. At the heart of the watch is the PF354 hand-wound in-house movement with 295 components and a 72-hour power reserve.

The all-new Panerai PAM 768 has splashes of green as it is the latest version of the Lo Scienziato Luminor 1950 Tourbillon. The flange, subdials, and power reserve arc indicator are flourished with a bold green colourway. But that’s not the key feature — it’s the 3D printed case, which is what makes the PAM 768 different from the rest.

H. Moser & Cie goes back to black with three new Venturer Vantablack variants. This comes in three sizes — Vantablack Black Hands (39mm), Vantablack Black Hands XL (43mm), as well as a tourbillon version (42mm). All three models will have a Vantablack case, the blackest black ever to be created for artificial means. It’s accompanied by black hands, providing you with a new way to tell time.

The IWC Big Pilot’s Watch is one of the more popular models for the brand and it now has a new limited-edition variant in “Black Carbon”. The case has a marble-like matte finish to accompany the luminescent carbon hands as well as the subdial at 3 o’clock and the date window at the 6 o’clock. The watch also comes with a matching 22mm-thick black calfskin strap to finish off the look.
