Baltic Flexes With New Limited Editions for Revolution and Perpétuel

Baltic continues to carry momentum after their first Only Watch appearance (which brought $50k) with the release of new limited edition watches for Revolution Magazine, and UAE based retailer, Perpétuel. Great LEs are nothing new to Baltic, of course, as we’ve known around here since March of 2020, and with these latest examples, the young French brand continues to prove just how well their base designs work. The latest models build on existing themes, as well as venture into new ground for emerging markets. 

For Revolution & The Rake, we find a Bicompax Pulso with a copper tone salmon dial and black accents that takes inspiration from the model auctioned for The Pink Dial Project (which sold for $10,200). The numerals are removed from the dial to make way for a more prominent sector layout featuring thick black outlines. A pulsometer chronograph scale frames the dial at the perimeter, while a subtle star at 6 denotes the partnership with Revolution & The Rake.

A hand wound ST 1901 remains within the 36.5mm steel case that we know and love with this watch. This watch was available exclusively through Revolution & The Rake, and has sold all out. See more of this watch from Revolution right here. 

For the UAE based retailer, Perpétuel, Baltic released a limited edition series of three watches, each receiving unique details for the region, as well as the brand’s first use of titanium cases. The three watches represent different takes on their HMS, Bicompax, and GMT lines, with colorways that feature heavily in black and copper tones. Each receives Eastern-Arabic numerals, which represent numerical digits in conjunction with the Arabic alphabet in the UAE’s region, the Mashriq (and elsewhere in the Arabian Peninsula). 

The forms work beautifully in Baltic’s design language, which itself is referential to some of the most iconic visual codes of vintage formal wear. The collection is exclusive to the retailer, and signals the growing embrace of a brand we’ve championed from the beginning. It also shows a watch doesn’t have to cost a lot to be considered great, with each of these examples ranging from $1,590 to $2,100.
