    Assuming the participating brands at Watches and Wonders - Geneva haven't buried any leads and won't be springing a "Just one more thing" later in the week...

    Personally, I'm thrilled to death that Rolex didn't announce something that caused me salivate. Frees up cash and prevents untold frustration.

    Meaning that now one (possibly both, but God I'm hoping not!) of these look increasingly likely for me for 2021:

    Bronze gold is a distant second, but hasn't been eliminated; the more I look, the more I kind of can't stop thinking it's pretty damn nice!

    Then this! Oris (and Nomos) are forever in my "maybe someday" category, but this has so much potential to come to papa!

    Can't seem to find a price though...

    I'm liking the new blue Cartier Tank LC, new Santos Dumont, and the VC 1921 in white gold. The green Nautilus is cool but there's no way I'll ever be able to get one.

    I’m thinking the same: blue Cartier Tank LC, Santos-Dumont with copper/salmon dial, and silver BB58.

    What I'm personally most intrigued by, but will likely miss given how small the window of opportunity usually is; will be the supposed new anniversary release from Kurono in June...if they do something between the styles of the Mori and the Grand Akane I'll be absolutely done for...!

    The new Breitling Premiers are gorgeous. That brand has been totally reinvigorated in my opinion. If only they weren't so bloody expensive.

    Nothing is a must-have, but I'm looking forward to seeing the Breitlings, IWC Pilot Chronographs, TAG Aquaracers and Tudor BB Chronos in stores whenever it's safe enough to go in.

    Breitlings are nice but WAY too big - 42 mm in diameter, 15.35 mm thick. The watch looks massive in photos showing it from the side. I guess that is because they are using modular movements to make these complications (like the split-seconds) more affordable.

    I just ordered the Pink Oris for my wife as she is smitten by it. AD quoted 2,400.00 Euros on the bracelet and it arrives in June.

    Haven't yet found a pricing yet... this first one, not the most flattering light, but I am digging this shade of blue!

    The rattrapante is indeed too thick for the dressy design, I think it should have been sportier. However the standard chronographs are 40mm and under 14mm thick, and I think those are the ones to watch

    These popped up today though, not part of W&W but caught my attention all the same:

    There's also a DLC version. I'm not a microbrand guy but the fact that it's a no-date supercompressor caught my eye. Then I saw that this 39mm watch is under 12mm thick!

    Might be seriously considering it when it goes on pre-sale next week...

    Wasn’t watches and wonders, but the zenith chrono master sport in white will be on my radar at some point if the snoopy doesn’t arrive.

    There’s one release from this year, that makes me want a release from 2019.

    Stick with me on this: Bulgari’s release this year of the world’s thinnest perpetual calendar (pictured in foreground below) means that in the last 7 years Bulgari has broken 6 world records for thinness:

    1D142150-6775-4DA1-A4F8-3D2CAB589460.jpeg

    This ‘dink article summarizes the 5 additional world records broken by Bulgari since 2014 (also photographed above):

    And now this perpetual calendar, with retrograde date, at 2.75mm.

    Compare the envelope-pushing that Bulgari is doing compared to... any other manufactures these days?

    For me, it’s been the 2019 world’s thinnest OF GMT-chrono that is the Bulgari apple in my eye. Among the reasons I’m attracted to it: having an example of what appears to be an impressive legacy Bulgari is building - with this year’s release just continuing that trend.

    So, Bulgari’s release of this week makes me even more want the GMT-chrono release from 2019:

    Absolutely agree on this. Waaay to chunky for my tastes. Esthetically however that Datora with the salmon dial is so lovely ::love::. If it wasn't for the size I probably would have ordered one.::shy::
