Some of the world’s finest new timepieces from the best luxury watchmakers

A. Lange & Söhne Tourbograph Perpetual Pour Le Merite

Walter Lange, the vanguard of German fine watchmaking and custodian of A. Lange & Söhne, passed away during the annual Salon International Haute Horlogerie earlier this year. It was there that this flagship watch made its debut to the world’s press. It features a fusée-and-chain mechanism, tourbillon, and chronograph with rattrapante function, all brought together in a typical Lange dial aesthetic housed in a 43mm platinum case that would make Walter proud. $500,000

Richard Mille RM 50-03 McLaren F1 

Last year, Richard Mille inked a ten-year deal with F1 racing giants McLaren-Honda, and this is the first timepiece to mark that collaboration. At a mere 40 grams, including the strap, it’s the world’s lightest split-seconds chronograph with a tourbillon. RM and McLaren created an all-new material called Graphene TPT to build this watch, only 75 of which will be manufactured. $980,000

Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600

It took a highly skilled master watchmaker five years to create this timepiece that packs in an incredible 23 complications, most of them with celestial indications. These include equation of time, solstices, and equinoxes, among several others. The ultra-complicated timepiece displays three kinds of time: civil time, solar time, and sidereal time. Just one watch is available for sale, which explains the astronomical price tag. $1 million

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar

This blacked-out timepiece hits a high-note for AP fans who love ceramic. Not only is the entire case of the watch in matte black brushed ceramic, so is the bracelet. The use of ceramic means that it’s going to be able to weather several blows without as much as a scratch, meaning there is less wear and tear as the years go by, and it’s resistant to high temperatures and thermal shocks. It is military-grade wrist wear for the urban warrior. $85,000
