Much like our time at the event last year, we also got to sit down with some of our own brand partners and gets hands on with the timepieces they will be launching in 2023.
Some of these will also be available to our clients both online and in selected Fraser Hart showrooms across the UK.

Here’s a look at some of the exciting launches we’ve seen so far from some of our most popular brands.

The watch itself has a “Kermit Green” dial that will stand out on the wearers wrist and Kermit himself makes an appearance in the date window on the first day of the month (“Kermit Day”). Of all the launches at Watches and Wonders 2023, we’ve found this to be one of the most entertaining and talked about timepieces. We’re delighted to say that you can already buy this watch from us now.

The movement can run for three days due to its energy efficient escapement and two barrels. This makes the “Tentagraph” the 10-beat chronograph with the longest power reserve in the industry today. This will be a brilliant addition the brands Evolution 9 Collection and will be available from the middle of this year in Grand Seiko boutiques.

There will also be expansions to their much-loved Heritage, Elegance and Sport Collections. Each complete with market leading movements, technical specs and beautiful nods to the Japanese landscape, culture & watchmaking heritage. Sign up to our mailing list to be notified when we’re adding Grand Seiko models to our showrooms and online.

IWC Schaffhausen

IWC Schaffhausen

Many IWC collectors have been looking for a modern take on this watch and so it created a real buzz among attendees. Although this model will only be available in IWC boutiques, the brand also showcased some of their classic other core collections such as the Big Pilot’s and Portugieser which we enjoyed trying on alongside the new Ingenieuer. Sign up to our mailing list to be notified when we’re adding new models to these collections.

Four models make up the Capsule Collection each of which are “Zero Oxygen” timepieces with beautiful design motifs that nod to the mountain range from which the brand gets its name. Montblanc have leveraged partnerships with explorer Reinhold Messner and Nepalese Mountaineer Nimsdai Purja to help tell this story as both have conquered mountains peaks without the need for supplementary oxygen.

We’ll be welcoming selected models from this incredible collection to Fraser Hart later this year and have no doubt that they’ll be very popular with our more adventurous watch collecting clients. Follow Montblanc on Instagram to find out more about the story behind these timepieces.

The beautiful PAM01026 comes complete with their Panerai Goldtech™ bezel, white sun brushed dial and alligator espresso strap. The simple but luxurious design of this watch exudes Italian flair and elegance and is also suitable for smaller wrists.

To help spread this message, Chopard had their A-list ambassador Julia Roberts on hand to be part of their week of programming and keynotes. In addition to their exciting new initiatives, Chopard also announced exciting product novelties. New Happy Sport, Mille Miglia, L.U.C and Alpine models are all beautifully manufactured with this new recyclable Lucent Steel material. We’re excited to add a number of these new sustainable timepieces to our always growing Chopard offering for clients.
