Here is a list of things, that will probably be new or change:

Emergency (already mentioned, but not yet fixed for 2011, maybe we will have to wait until 2012)

New Navitimer 01 and Montbrillant 01, as already seen in the limited series

Chronomat 01 GMT

Chronospace Automatic (Valjoux 7750, Square indices, Case of Chronospace) will be probably officialy presented on February 17th

Chrono Galactic will be terminated, a smaller chronograph (~40mm is in the pipeline, but probably for 2012)

Navitimer Legend and Steelfish XP will expire

Colt series will be relaunched (Colt Qz, Colt Automatic and Colt Chrono Qz)

Best greatings and happy speculations

Alien

Intersting - clearly the market has voted on Galactic so Breitling is starting to back down there, and an automatic Chronospace is interesting - but seems like a 'placeholder' more than anything else. Also good to see the Colts getting relaunched, hopefully not with silly bezels.

Big news has to be the GMT complication in the in house movement though - that's clearly good news and a stop gap until the B02 is ready (which I still hear is likely later this year). Has to inevitably be headed for the Navitimer World at some point as well.

Thanks for the update Thomas!

That is INDEED the big news, and great to hear. And if it made it into the Navi World (which is still the best sized Navi EVER IMO) then that'd be fantastic!

Jonesing bad for new Emergency news. :drool:

Won't commit on a current model until I hear about the "new" one.

That sounds interesting.

That's normally an additional hour hand and some addition to the dial for a 24 hour clock right??

It's used to keep a track of time in another time zone I believe.

Definitely a second hour hand to show the second timezone. Doesn't have to have any other modifications, but often has the secon timezone as a 24 hour clock.

I have seen a picture of the Chronomat 01 GMT today: It has the same GMT hand as in the Bentley GMT, otherwise it looks exactly like the Chronomat 01. The movement is called 04.

I have also seen a picture of the Transocean 3hands watch: Very nice, seems to be quite flat, index dials, date at 3h, Breitling cal. 10.

There will be a special (limited?) edition of the Chronomat 01, called the "Flying fish" (nickname of Hermann Nitsch). All satinated, black dial version.

Any guess if the GMT 04 movement will be a 'true' GMT?

That sounds interesting Thomas, thanks for the info.

Barely two weeks to go now....

From it's description, this sounds a lot like the current Chronomat 01 LE - brushed/satin finish and a black dial?

It's when the GMT hand is independent from the main hour hand. Rolex GMTs are like that.
