Especially the following five watches, even when there is a hot “watch and miracle”, it still attracts the attention of many watch lovers, and almost can’t cover the purse!
Rado Captain Cook high-tech ceramic watches
Rado has released the new Captain Cook high-tech ceramic watch, which combines Rado’s popular Captain Cook collection with the brand’s signature high-tech ceramic material, which can be described as the crystallization of the brand’s years of research and development and the long tradition of Captain Cook. The watch combines Rado’s key research and development achievements, including the brand’s pioneering one-piece high-tech ceramic case, wear-resistant and non-allergenic high-tech ceramics, and the high-quality exclusive Rado R734 movement with NivachronTM anti-magnetic hairspring. The new watch has a semi-transparent skeletonized dial design, which can be seen inside the movement, and Rado has always been very knowledgeable about the production of skeletonized watches. With a diameter of 43 mm, the watch features a high-tech ceramic case with a rotating bezel of polished black or blue high-tech ceramic inlaid in stainless steel, a high-tech ceramic bracelet or rubber strap. The internal movement is also very reliable, with a long power of 80 hours, and its test standard has been raised from 3 to 5 positions, which greatly improves its accuracy. The watch is water resistant to 300 meters. With a unique high-value appearance, superior performance, light texture and comfortable wearing experience, the watch is only 26,700 yuan to 30,800 yuan.
Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Concept “Black Panther” floating tourbillon watch
Marvel has always been a super hot big IP, even so, the launch of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak concept series “Black Panther” floating tourbillon watch is still “a stone shocking a thousand waves”. This is Audemars Piguet’s first Marvel Super Hero series watch, choosing the popular hero Black Panther. Inspired by the Black Panther, the two iconic colours of black and purple were chosen, and the floating tourbillon of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept series is a modern hand-painted and engraved representation of Marvel’s Black Panther heroes, made in white gold and brought to life. The carving and painting of the panther took a total of 30 hours by hand. The shapes in the 250 watches are decorated by a professional team of 4 engravers and 4 painters. Housed in a 42mm titanium case with a black ceramic bezel, the Calibre 2965 calibre is also reminiscent of the Panther’s cool cutting-edge clothing. This watch is only the beginning of the long-term cooperation between Audemars Piguet and Marvel, and you can look forward to more Audemars Piguet Marvel heroes in the future. The watch comes with a purple rubber strap and a black rubber strap and is limited to 250 pieces.
Omega Seamaster Series 300m Diver’s Watch “Tokyo 2020” Special Edition
As the 100-day countdown to the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics, Omega has launched the Seamaster series 300m diver’s watch “Tokyo 2020” special edition. There is no doubt that the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will have a bad fate and several twists and turns. Although it was the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, it was actually held in 2021. As the official timekeeper, it is understandable that Omega launched related watches. I once talked to friends about the Tokyo Olympics and its related watches, and we agreed that the “Tokyo 2020” Olympic Special Edition is very commemorative and collectible, just like the wrong version of the yuan. The Omega Seamaster 300m diver’s watch “Tokyo 2020” Special Edition features a polished white ceramic dial with a polished blue ceramic bezel with white enamel diving scales, laser-engraved ripples and red “Seamaster” lettering, blue hands and hour markers. Inside the watch is the OMEGA 8800 Ultimate chronometer calibre with a power reserve of 55 hours, a transparent back and a Tokyo 2020 Olympic emblem on the caseback. The watch is equipped with a stainless steel bracelet and carries it in an Olympic special watch box, and the official price is 45,200 RMB.
BR V2-94 FULL LUM
The playful luminous Bell & Ross has launched a new watch that is destined to attract much attention – BR V2-94 FULL LUM. After the square watch, Bellace finally had a round watch with full luminescence, and it was a chronograph. The entire metal dial is coated with pale green Super-LumiNova C5, with openwork metal numerals, hour markers, hands and chronographs filled with pale yellow Super-LumiNova®® C3. In a clear environment, the watch presents a very fresh temperament, full of summer style, like mint. In the dark, the watch presents a cool look in the vintage. It is worth mentioning that the luminous material on the dial can absorb and emit light indefinitely, never affecting the function of the watch, and the light absorption is extremely fast and the luminosity is outstanding. In the luminous environment, the 30-minute timer and chronograph hands at 9 o’clock turn fluorescent blue, which is significantly different from the green luminous light in other parts, ensuring maximum legibility. The 41 mm diameter watch features a matte and polished stainless steel case, a self-winding movement and is water resistant to 100 metres. The watch comes in a black rubber strap and is limited to 250 pieces and has an official price of 37,200 RMB.

As Bulgari’s most cost-effective watch, the Aluminium series has always been well received and captured the hearts of countless men and women. This time, Bulgari teamed up with music producer, DJ and fashion designer Steve Aoki to create this new watch that shines in the dark. The dial is decorated with the Steve Aoki logo, coated with Superluminova luminescent coating, still in a 40mm aluminium case with a rubber bezel, equipped with a 42-hour power reserve B77 self-winding calibre, water resistant to 100 meters. The DLC-coated titanium case back is engraved with the Steve Aoki logo and is full of art. The official price of the watch is 24,200 yuan, which is very cost-effective.
