The dust has settled, the jetlag passed, and now a little over a week after Baselworld we can recap all the watches we have been shown, and put together a list of what we consider the hottest new Haute Complications!

Marine Equation Marchante 5887

Breguet Marine Equation Marchante 5887
Breguet outdid themselves with the new Marine Equation Marchante 5887. This watch combines in a tourbillon, perpetual calendar and equation of time (the difference between solar time and real time) in a very innovative time display. While Breguet nurtures its heritage and old-school craftsmanship, they are also not afraid to step into the future of watchmaking, with a titanium tourbillon carriage and silicon balance spring, for maximum precision.

Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis

Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis
Leave it to Hublot to reinvent the bi-axis tourbillon! With its unique shaped case, all eyes will be drawn immediately to what makes this Hublot so special: the bi-axis tourbillon. Occupying its own space at the lower part of the watch case, its tourbillon makes a full rotation around one axis in 60 seconds, and one around the other axis in 30 seconds. This visual splendor is matched by the unique date display, as well as a power reserve of an impressive five days.

Jacob & Co Astronomia Flawless

Jacob & Co Astronomia Flawless
While the original Astronomia was already an impressive watch, Jacob & Co felt the need to take it even a step further. Not by adding additional complications, but rather by turning the case into one. Named Astronomia Flawless, it features an entirely transparent case made from sapphire crystal. This gives you a full view of the movement of this complicated watch, and there we find the biggest surprise: there is seemingly not much to it. But don’t be disappointed, as making complicated things look easy is still the sign of a grand master.
