The most interesting new Alpina is the Extreme Sailing Yacht Timer, a new take on the brand’s existing Yacht-Timer model. As its countdown function reaches the last five minutes before the start of a regatta, the numerals recede to reveal the five letters of the word “START.” This innovative sailing watch will retail for 3,150 euros.
From Blancpain’s elegant Le Brassus collection comes the Tourbillon Carrousel (front and back, below), an ultra-complicated timepiece that is the first to feature both a tourbillon and a carrousel, two horological inventions that are often confused for each other. This piece, with a breathtakingly detailed manufacture movement, will retail for nearly 300,000 euros.
