First let's take a look at one of our absolute favorite brands, as we're big fans of German watches, Lange, and some of their gorgeous new models.
This is the new Triple Split, and it may be getting the most attention of any new watch at the moment. It's the first mechanical split-seconds chronograph that also allows multi-hour comparative time measurements. They're exclusively in white gold and only making 100.
Its incredibly elaborate movement, really a work of art.
I was almost as impressed with this new Saxonia Thin, however. Its dial is coated with copper-blue goldstone and it does a convincing impression of a starry night sky, twinkling and all. I'll upload a video of this later because it looks a lot different than the photos suggest.
This new watch is called the "Little Lange 1," part of a collection of three Lange 1s (also available with a brown or pink dial) aimed at women. These are 36.8mm, a slightly more palatable size for those with smaller wrists.
For fans of moon phases, there's this delightfully subdued Saxonia Moon Phase.
Or, if you'd prefer not to have a moon phase, there's also this Saxonia Outsize Date model.
Finally, we look at the new pink gold/black dial 1815 chronograph.
Next we'll have a look at Zenith's 2018 offerings at their Geneva Days event.
Zenith is expanding its heritage-inspired chronographs two new flavors of the TIPO CP-2. You can get it in this new bronze case or an aged steel one, both more vintage-inspired than the last.
Unsurprisingly, Zenith has chosen to greatly expand their recent Defy El Primero 21 with new blue, black (case) and gold models. They've even added two versions covered in diamonds.

IWC has a really nice showing here with a ton of watches with one of our favorite combinations, white dials and blued hands. I'd suggest that IWC may have the biggest new watch launch of anyone this year. More photos to come.
Here are some great Montblancs:

A very cool display from IWC.
