The best guess I can give is that it will be the 12th of the month. Which month? I don’t know, but we all have a 1/12 chance of being right.
Actually, you could narrow that to one of four months. CW usually time the release of their significant models with the release of their quarterly publication.

The archive is your friend here with the Timeline.

22 models released so far in 2023. This includes LEs of existing designs so I am not counting them.

C60 Shadow
The Twelve
Dune
C63 SH21
C1 Moonphase

But, you have to go back a little if they are counting from Nov going back 12.

The Bel Canto was released in November 2022. So that falls in the 12 months. I didn't pick this because I don't see how the Bel Canto would work. Maybe it would but I am not seeing it.
For some reason I was ruling out existing SH21 models, but now I feel pretty sure it’s a new C63 SH21 in the Concept style. This seems the most straightforward choice with the case already designed, just slap in a skeletonized movement.

Except that, I believe, the C63 SH21 was declared to be the last watch with the current SH21. Following along with that, it seems reasonable to assume the new release will be the SH21.2. If so all bets are off.

Would a minute repeater be out of the question? Well yes…. But it’s fun to dream!

I am really hoping it is a skeletonized twelve. I have been waiting on buying a twelve to see if they come out with new colours. My guess if it is a twelve, it will be announced on the 12th day of the twelfth month. Here is hoping
