BURO Watch List: 5 Wristwatches to splurge on this May

Hot off the heels of Watches and Wonder 2024, our enthusiasm for timepieces shows no signs of cooling down, especially with renowned brands like Tag Heuer, Tudor, and Maurice Lacroix showcasing their latest releases. For those in pursuit of their next horological piece, we’ve handpicked five brand-new watches you’ll want to check out right now. Not only are these timepieces ultra-functional and reasonably priced, but they also make strong style statements. 


Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono ‘Cycling Edition’  

Originally crafted for the Tudor Pro Cycling team, the Pelagos FXD Chrono ‘Cycling Edition’ boasts a carbon composite build and advanced Manufacture Calibre, promising unmatched durability and reliability. This Tudor watch sports a matt black dial, accented with striking red details and ‘Snowflake’ hands that ensure optimal legibility in all conditions. Additionally, the tachymeter scale has been recalibrated for accurate tracking of cycling speeds. Completing its cyclist-friendly design is the single-piece strap with a traditional buckle.




Tag Heuer Formula 1 | Kith  

At the recent Miami Grand Prix, Tag Heuer launched refreshed renditions of the original 1986 Tag Heuer Formula 1 Series with a range of ten colourways to choose from. This particular version sports an eggshell-hued dial embellished with black dots and shield indexes infused with Super-Luminova for enhanced visibility. Housed in a robust 35mm steel case, it also pays homage to its predecessor with the original black arnite bezel marked by red and white markings, as well as the five-link steel bracelet.




Rado True Square Automatic Open Heart 

If you’re looking for a timepiece that diverges from the conventional black or blue choices, you might want to consider the True Square Automatic Open Heart. The latest Rado watch is embellished in turquoise, covering every detail from its high-tech ceramic case to its bracelet. Its appeal is further enhanced by the open-heart design, granting a glimpse of the intricate mechanics of the Rado Calibre 734, which boasts an impressive 80-hour power reserve. Upon closer look, you’ll find 12 diamonds encircling the dials, adding a subtle touch of refinement. 




Maurice Lacroix Aikon Automatic Bronze

While the Aikon has previously been offered in a bronze shade, this model catches the eye with its dial. It now comes with a gradient smoked chocolate face with a Clous de Paris texture and the House’s emblem at 12 o’clock. On top of that, the Maurice Lacroix watch features a 42mm case for a comfortable wrist fit and offers a water resistance of 20 ATM, making it an essential gear for your next adventure.




Baume & Mercier Riviera 10786 

Baume & Mercier’s steel sports watches are always a great option, and the Riviera 10786 is no exception. Limited to 50 pieces, this exclusive timepiece showcases a sun-brushed grey dial, coupled with snailed counters that seamlessly complement the new Riviera Baumatic perpetual calendar. Adding to its allure is a three-row interchangeable stainless steel bracelet, now upgraded with decorative bevels on the central link.
