A Hesalite Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch 3861

Sticking with brands that understand the crossover of horology and jewels, we turn to Cartier. While it is most definitely known for its Santos and Tank lines, only looking in that direction would mean missing one of the brand’s archetypal watches, which brings us to one of our favorite iterations of Cartier watchmaking and watch design: The Tortue. You may or may not know this, but the Tortue was one of the brand’s earliest designs, so its shape has equal significance to our beloved Tank. Today, we present a beautiful execution of the Tortue in rose gold with a stunningly integrated date complication at the top of the dial. This 38mm stunner is reminiscent of the historical Tortue but is also very much in line with the brand’s more modern design codes. Sometimes, in watches, it’s good to zag while everyone else zigs – to look away from the obvious choices and toward something truly special and collectible. The Tortue represents that idea fully.
Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar 5140P-001
We are fresh off the month of February, which is the month we become aware of whether or not the current year… is a leap year. Given that 2024 is, in fact, such a year, we made sure to celebrate one of our favorite complications: The perpetual calendar. And it seems that celebration continues as we present this Patek Philippe 5140P Perpetual Calendar – a flawless example of the best of Patek and the best of QPs. This watch features a beautiful blue dial replete with the perpetual calendar complication on full display. What makes this such a special watch is the fact that it’s from the 2000s and gives an almost unfathomably perfect 37mm case. Patek is all about refinement, and this 5140P (platinum!), is about as refined as they come.

Last but not least, we have one of the best watches money can buy, well, ever. The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is about as iconic as it gets. It’s the kind of watch you can buy and basically never need another watch for the rest of your life. Of course, we watch lovers know that’s about the same as trying to eat one Lay’s chip. But we digress. Today, we are featuring the current generation of Speedy Pro models, updated in 2021.
That year, we saw Omega take the Speedmaster we love and upgrade the movement to the METAS-certified 3861 caliber complete with hacking seconds. We saw refinements to the dial via the step motif and minor tweaks to the markers and text. The case was refined as well, but the most obvious upgrade was in the bracelet which took a throwback approach and delivered an amazingly tapered execution that is just so great on-wrist. Here we have the hesalite crystal version, which means you get the truest form of Moonwatch with the closed engraved caseback. There’s not much more that needs to be said about the Speedy. It’s one fantastic unit of watch.
