2024 is set to be another enticing year for luxury watch releases!

While 2023 was defined by colourful dials and small profiles, this year brings plenty of new trends and anticipated releases. 

This article provides an essential overview of trends to watch, brands to know and releases to explore. 

From technological and stylistic innovation to a growing interest in sustainability, these are the horological trends that will define the luxury watch market in 2024. 

1. Sustainability Matters


The Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch

In 2024, sustainability and ethical practices continue to shape the landscape of luxury watchmaking. 

With an increasing demand for responsibly sourced materials, brands are prioritising environmental impact and ethical considerations. 

Deloitte's 2022 report highlights sustainability as a significant factor influencing watch purchases, particularly in regions like China. 

In response to these consumer trends, luxury watch brands have been quick to respond. Rolex's Perpetual Planet initiative focuses on environmental preservation and resource conservation. 

Oris, the Swiss luxury watchmaker, uses innovative upcycled materials such as ghost fishing nets, also demonstrating a commitment to sustainability across the industry.

With innovations like upcycled materials and carbon-neutral production, luxury watch brands are embracing sustainability as a core value, reflecting a growing consumer preference for environmentally conscious products.

2. Emerging Technologies


The Richard Mille luxury watch boutique.

Technological advancements are always at the forefront of new luxury watch releases, with 2024 being no exception.

The Richard Mille RMUP-01 Ferrari manual winding ultra-thin limited edition watch sets a new standard with its remarkable thinness, boasting a case thickness of only 1.75 mm.

Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) technology plays a pivotal role in enhancing both aesthetics and durability, allowing for the application of thin yet robust layers to watch components. 

This process not only transforms the appearance of materials like stainless steel or titanium but also provides added protection against scratches, rust, and moisture.

Many luxury watch brands are also pioneering new and innovative materials, such as special alloys and industrial sapphire, to enhance technical performance and durability. 

These advancements underscore the industry's commitment to blending cutting-edge technology with timeless elegance.

3. Customisation and Personalisation


The trend towards bespoke luxury watches is gaining momentum as individuals seek unique expressions of their style and identity. 

With bespoke watches, almost every aspect is customisable, from the dial colour to the strap type and even intricate engravings. This level of personalisation elevates the watch beyond a mere timekeeping device to a statement piece of wearable art. 

Renowned watchmakers like Artisan De Geneve, AET Remould, and MAD Paris are leading the charge, offering masterful craftsmanship and innovative customisation that cater to individual tastes and preferences. 

This growing demand for bespoke watches underscores the desire for exclusivity and personalisation in luxury timepieces.

4. Collaboration and Limited Editions

The luxury watch industry is witnessing a surge in collaborative projects and limited-edition releases, marking a convergence of creativity and craftsmanship across diverse industries. 

Notable collaborations, such as the Louis Vuitton/Akrivia LVRR-01 Chronograph Sonnerie, showcase the fusion of expertise from LVMH and independent watchmaker Akrivia, resulting in exquisite timepieces that marry innovation with tradition. 

Additionally, men's limited edition watches like the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch “Silver Snoopy Award” exemplify the allure of exclusive designs and historical significance, capturing the essence of luxury and collectibility.

5. Vintage Revival 


A new release from Rolex in 2024.

The enduring charm of vintage-inspired designs and heritage models continues to captivate collectors and enthusiasts in the luxury watch industry. 

These timepieces evoke nostalgia while embodying timeless elegance and craftsmanship. Rolex exemplifies this trend with its iconic GMT-Master II, blending historical appeal with modern innovation. 

Featuring a grey and black Cerachrom bezel insert and bidirectional rotatable bezel, the GMT-Master II pays homage to its heritage while offering a fresh aesthetic. 

With subtle nods to its past, this watch resonates with aficionados seeking a blend of tradition and contemporary style in their timepieces.

6. Digital Integration and Smart Features


Luxury timepieces are embracing the digital age by integrating smart features to enhance connectivity and functionality. 

From fitness tracking to smartphone connectivity, these high-end watches seamlessly blend traditional craftsmanship with modern technology. 

Brands like H. Moser & Cie and Bulgari embody this trend, with innovative designs like the Endeavour Centre Seconds Genesis and Octo Finissimo Ultra, featuring integrated QR codes linked to non-fungible tokens.

While some have seen NFTs as a passing trend, Deloitte reports that 57% of brands are currently planning to introduce non-fungible tokens as “digital twins” to their watches, serving for certification and as accessories in the metaverse.

This convergence of historical brands and digital innovation caters to a new generation of consumers, seeking both heritage and cutting-edge capabilities in their timepieces.

Future Now: Some of the Most Anticipated Luxury Watches of 2024

This year’s trending watches marry traditional appeal with contemporary flair, with classic styles housing new technologies and functionality. 

Here are three luxury watch releases that are causing a stir. 

Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope Paris 2024

Presented in the gold, black, and white colours of Paris 2024, this unique 43mm Chronoscope series celebrates OMEGA's integral role at the Olympic and Paralympic Games. It pays homage to the classic Speedmaster of the 1940s, with stunning Arabic numerals and three timers on the dial, tachymeter, pulsometer, and telemeter. Crafted in Moonshine Gold and powered by a Master Chronometer Calibre 9908/9909, this 43mm watch blends vintage charm with modern precision. 

Breitling Navitimer Automatic GMT 41mm

Breitling's new collection features GMTs and three-handed Automatic pieces in various colours, including black, silver, blue, and green. Despite debuting its design in 1952, the Navitimer GMT continues to exude contemporary style, evident in its ice-blue dial. 

Longines HydroConquest GMT 43mm

Longines surprises with its metallic-looking green dial HydroConquest GMT, a nod to the growing trend of green dials in 2024. This 43mm timepiece, introduced alongside other new GMT models, offers a blend of style and functionality, making it a standout choice and one of the most sought-after luxury watch releases of the year. 

Lastly, Don’t Forget To Insure Your Watch!

One last watch trend to consider is not quite so enticing - the rise in watch theft in 2024

With increasing numbers of robberies reported around the globe, organising the appropriate levels of cover has never been more important. 

Luckily, Q Report specialises in luxury watch insurance in Australia that covers theft, loss and damage.
