Baume & Mercier Classima

Watches and Wonders 2022:  Parmigiani Fleurier, Zenith, H. Moser, and More

The 2022 edition of Watches & Wonders launched in Geneva yesterday, introducing the latest creations in the world of Haute Horology. Below, we’re looking back at the debuts from Parmigiani Fleurier, Zenith, H. Moser, Baume & Mercer, and Piaget.

Tonda PF Flying Tourbillon

From Parmigiani Fleurier’s “Tonda” series, our model of note is the PF Flying Tourbillon. Its round 42mm case is accompanied by a platinum chain link bracelet, which makes for a clean, professional appearance that offers a sleek upgrade to your office wardrobe. A simplistic platinum dial completes the monochrome look, outfitted with hands for hours and minutes, and a visible tourbillon feature.

Zenith Chronomaster Sport

Zenith introduced new variations to its Chronomaster Sport line, expanding with a suite of gold and two-tone designs that each feature an Automatic El Primero column-wheel chronograph movement. The 41mm timepieces include several functions like hours, minutes, small seconds, a central chronograph hand rotating every 10 seconds, and 60-minute and 60-second counters. Enclosing the wrist with chain-link bracelets, the gorgeous Chronomaster Sport models are available in color combinations like rose gold with a white matte dial, rose gold with a black lacquered dial, and a combination of stainless steel and rose gold, which accompanies a silver sunray dial.

H. Moser Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton

If you’re looking for a memorable piece to adorn your wrist, you’ll likely love H. Moser’s Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton as much as we did. A crystalline enclosure makes the inner workings of the 42.8mm timepiece viewable from both sides, revealing the cogs and gears of its self-winding three-dimensional Manufacture caliber. Encased in steel and featuring a blue sunburst sub-dial reading hours and minutes, the watch is complete with a black alligator leather strap.

Baume & Mercier Classima

Of Baume & Mercier’s debuts, our favorites were the updates to the maison’s Classima timepieces, offering three variations for men and one for women. The new iterations of the iconic self-winding watch included a 42mm style in nature-inspired tones of sand, muted green, and blue—each featuring a canvas strap and an opposing colored dial with Roman numerals marking hours, minutes, and seconds—while a delicate 34mm model in polished steel was imagined with a metal strap and an elegant burgundy dial.

Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Concept

Finally revealed after six years in the making, Piaget’s Altiplano Ultimate Concept is a watchmaking marvel, measuring in at an astounding 2mm thickness. Its 41mm cobalt alloy case has been painted with a SuperLuminova constellation representing the sky at its place and time of creation, and also holds a sub-dial bearing hours and minutes. The sleek model is for perfect everyday wear and can be updated for more elevated occasions, as it comes equipped with both a blue Baltimora textile strap and a glossy strap in alligator leather.
