Check out the latest offerings from the most renowned watch brands

Backyard barbecues, picnics and lounging poolside aren’t the only reasons why summer is the favored time of year – there are also hot fashions that include the always- stylish wrist watch.

At the core of this summer’s new releases is functionality. And the classic look is still as fashionable as ever, with Harry Winston, Bvlgari and Rolex sticking to the wrist watch basics: stainless steel, gold, leather, rubber and diamonds. But these watches are anything but ordinary.

Harry Winston releases its limited edition Project Z5 and Lady Z, which bring together for the first time two tourbillon mechanisms and two time zones. The Project Z5 is perfect for the frequent traveler and represents the next phase of Harry Winston’s exclusive Project Z series. The Lady Z is as elegant as it is functional. Inspired by the mythical goddess Luna, the design features the unique dualities and femininity of the moon: one white (diamonds) and one black (black sapphires).

Also coming out this summer is Bvlgari’s 20th anniversary edition of its Diagono line, the Calibro 303. The Diagono, Bvlgari’s sports line, is renowned for its rigorous design and superb technical qualities. The column wheel of the Calibro 303 enables, with high precision and reliability, the start, stop and reset of the chronograph function. The integrated chronograph with column wheel and vertical clutch offers a prestigious chronograph system.

Rolex keeps true to its reputation for quality and style with the release of its Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. Using its signature 904L Steel, a robust corrosion-resistant stainless-steel alloy, the Daytona is structured to withstand all environmental elements. Perfectly crafted for the Daytona track, the timepiece can be used to measure elapsed time and calculate average speed.
