Brellum

Pandial LE.1 DD Chronometer There’s just something quintessentially cool about a tachymeter-equipped panda dialled watch and the latest from bang-for-your-buck brand Brellum is no different – other than it’s even more appealing than most. Opting for nautical blue rather than black, the layout is incredibly handsome, right down to the placement of the dial wording above and below the day date window at three o’clock. There’s a lot to love – including the classically decorated movement visible through the caseback. It’s also, as with every Brellum watch, an absolute steal at around £2,250. It’s just a shame it’s so limited. brellum.swiss THE SPECS:

• 43mm stainless steel case with 100m water resistance • BRELLUM BR-750-2 automatic movement with 46-hour power reserve • CHF 2,750 (approx. £2,225), limited to 33 pieces, brellum.swiss

Isotope Terra Maris GMT 0º

One of the most aesthetically individual microbrands working today, Isotope are a homegrown favourite (particularly their burnt tangerine Hyrium) and now they’re turning international with the brand’s first GMT. Still using their now signature teardrop shape for the titular traveller’s complication, the collaborative watch (designed with help from watch journalist Miguel Seabra) is split between brown and blue to represent the meeting of land and sea at the Portuguese coastal region of Cascais. The fume outer dial is lovely, as is the peripheral date. The only thing it’s missing? A hint of burnt tangerine. isotopewatches.com

THE SPECS:

• 41.5mm stainless steel case with 200m water resistance • Landeron automatic movement with 40-hour power reserve • £1,240, limited to 49 pieces, isotopewatches.com
