Greatest new watches at Watches and Wonders 2024: my prime picks from Rolex, Tudor and extra (to this point)

Welcome to my roundup of Watches and Wonders 2024, where I’ll keep you updated on all the latest releases and highlights from the largest and most important watch event of the year.

With the eyes of every watch enthusiast and collector on the planet firmly on them, all of the biggest brands have unveiled their latest creations at the Geneva-based watch show, with Rolex, Tudor, Grand Seiko, TAG Heuer, Zenith, all taking part. And that’s just to name a few!

The show is taking place over several days, during which all brands will host a series of events and presentations – I’ll be in attendance, getting hands-on with all of the latest releases.

I’ll be picking my very favourite new launches and keeping you updated along the way. Here are the best new watches at Watches and Wonders 2024 so far… (updating)


Tudor Black Bay 58 GMT

Perhaps my highlight of the show so far is the Tudor Black Bay 58 GMT. It’s a watch that Tudor fans have been begging for for a long time due to the current Black Bay GMT’s rather chunky dimensions. The Black Bay 58 GMT has a 39mm diameter case and a bidirectional bezel in red and black, with gold numbering. It comes on a cut-to-size rubber strap, or stainless steel bracelet, and is priced from £3,770.

Tudor Black Bay

Taking inspiration from last year’s Black Bay 54, Tudor has also launched a new monochromatic Black Bay in 41mm. It comes with all of the latest in Black Bay enhancements introduced at W&W last year, including the ‘T Fit’ clasp and a movement that is Master Chronometer certified by METAS. It’s priced from £3,630.


Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40

A watch that was recently glimpsed at the Oscars, Rolex has expanded the Day-Date range with new versions of the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 and the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36. The new models are presented in 18 ct Everose gold, introducing slate ombré – a completely new hue for such a dial. The surface, coloured at the centre, progresses to a deep black around the edge. Also appearing for the first time on the ombré dial of this watch are faceted, deconstructed Roman numerals and faceted index hour markers in 18 ct pink gold.

TAG Heuer

TAG Heuer Carerra Chronograph 7753 SN

A new addition to TAG Heuer’s ‘Glassbox’ Carrera Chronograph collection, this model is a reinterpretation of the ‘7753 SN’ chronograph from the late 1960s. The original 7753 SN had a silvered dial with black subdials and was designed for ultimate legibility. The new 2024 model takes Jack Heuer’s 1963 vision and combines it with the ultra-popular modern glassbox 39mm steel case, topped with a sapphire crystal reminiscent of vintage Heuer Carrera models. I love the vintage bi-compax ‘Panda’ dial – it might be my favourite model yet.


Zenith Defy Extreme Diver

An extension to Zenith’s Defy Extreme range, this new Diver model is designed to take the range to new depths. Its 42.5mm angular case is crafted in titanium and is rated to 600 metres (60 ATM) of water resistance, which happens to be 1’969 feet – a symbolic number for the DEFY diver. The DEFY Extreme Diver is powered by the El Primero 3620-SC automatic high-frequency manufacture calibre with 60 hours power reserve, visible through a sapphire display back – an uncommon feature among diver’s watches.
