If watches were judged solely on the number of characters gracing the dial, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona Platinum Watch ($TBA) would surely be one of the greatest timepieces ever created. Of course, that's not how they're judged, but this new Daytona — created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original — impresses anyway. Crafted entirely from 950 platinum, it features a Cerachrom brown ceramic bezel, an ice blue dial, and a 4130 self-winding movement. Just move fast if you want to pick one up — it'll be extremely limited, and sold only at select retailers.
Finding the perfect accessory to compliment your Ferrari LaFerrari was a difficult task — until now. Developed alongside the Ferrari teams and in parallel with the car, the Hublot Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari Watch ($TBA) is a feat of engineering worthy of the venerable race car company's flagship. It's main claim to fame is a 50-day power reserve — a world record for a hand-wound Tourbillon wristwatch, and made possible by a custom movement designed, developed, and produced in-house. It also features the most watchmaking components of any Hublot watch, including a complex shaped sapphire crystal based on the car's outline, an open case back, a black PVD titanium case, anodized black aluminum cylinders with SuperLuminova markings for the hours, minutes, seconds, and power reserve indicators, and reinforcing bars on either side of the cylinders that serve as subtle nods to Ferrari's signature red color. The watch arrives in a leather and carbon fiber presentation case, and is limited to just 50 examples, which means only 1 in 10 LaFerrari owners will get to enjoy owning both.
Don't worry — it's not adorned with clichéd Pink Floyd cover art. Instead, the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon Watch ($TBA) celebrates the lack of light by sporting a nearly all-black design. Details include a black ceramic 44.25mm case and chronograph pushers, a black zirconium oxide ceramic dial, a sapphire display back, indexes in white gold, and a rhodium-plated, red-tipped chronograph hand. Tying it all together is a black Cordura strap with a black ceramic buckle, making this the most stealthy Omega you'll find outside of a custom shop.
