[Photo Report] LVMH Watch Week Comes to NYC

Last week, we had the opportunity to go hands-on with many of the new releases from LVMH brands, who celebrated their LVMH Watch Week to kick off the new year. We saw new watches from Zenith, TAG Heuer, Hublot, and Bulgari, and even had the chance to sit with leadership from the brands to discuss their plans moving forward. Stay tuned for more impressions coming to the podcast and the site later this week, and in the meantime you’ll find a photo report from our time with the watches, along with a few takeaways from the experience. From lavish Hublots to perfectly understated TAG Heuers, there’s a little something for everyone here, including a surprise or two along the way.



We’re kicking things off with Zenith, who showed us new additions to their Skyline collection, which includes a new skeletonized dial, as well as smaller 36mm variants. They also had their latest Defy Revival A3691 with brilliant red dial, and perhaps best of all, and original ‘Bank Vault’ example (courtesy of podcast alum, Romain Marietta). There was a bonus appearance by a new boutique exclusive Defy with a grey and gold dial that worked much better in person that any of the images we’d seen up to that point. First impression of the new Skyline Skeleton was just how well the slightly larger proportions of the case worked on the wrist.

TAG Heuer

TAG Heuer had no shortage of watches to show us, from a new case in their smart watch Connected range, to that stunning 60th anniversary Carrera, and of course, one of our favorites of the show, the Aquaracer Solargraph. One of the surprises was just how well that crazy new Monza worked in person compared to pictures. That might be a theme here, come to think of it.


Hublot always seems to strike a nerve and this year they didn’t hold back on the good stuff. They did their thing without holding back and we got throwback Classic Fusion watches alongside some crazy new creations that seem to defy explanation. Whether you love ’em or hate ’em there’s no denying the allure here that you can’t look away from. As a bonus, we also got to see some of their other handiwork created recently, and none of it held back.


Bulgari is holding their more masculine creations for later this year, but that didn’t stop us from appreciating their latest Serpenti, which is quite spectacular in the hand. They also brought their impossibly thin Octo Finissimo Ultra, the now second thinnest watch in the world (Richard Mille’s Ferrari creation took the top spot when it was released), and it was a shocking thing to behold on the wrist. We were also quite taken with the bespoke box that it comes in, which is used for autonomous winding and setting.
