This week’s favorites: fun and wild watches from Breitling and TAG, plus the NOMOS we’ve been waiting form.
Breitling Navitimer B02 Chronograph 41 Cosmonaute Porco Rosso
Porco Rosso is a 1992 animated movie about Porco, a pig-snouted pilot, set against the scenic backdrop that is Italy’s Adriatic coast of the 1930’s . At the 30th anniversary of the movie, what better way than to celebrate with a pilot’s watch? Enter the Navitimer B02 Chronograph 41 Cosmonaute Porco Rosso. Details remain scarce for now, it is clear that a Porco Rosso insignia is found at 12:00. And whilst watches with cartoon characters might be a bit of a thing right now, Breitling already did a Porco Rosso limited edition back in the early 00’s. Details!
TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph x Mario Kart
Whilst we’re on the topic of watches with fictional characters, what about the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph x Mario Kart? Kitting out the brand’s entry-level Formula 1 with a tourbillon movement is big news in itself, but TAG went one up and made it a collaboration with the Mario Kart universe. Wild!
