Once a maker of all sorts of "homages" the British company Christopher Ward puts a lot of effort into becoming a serious brand. This new, dressy Chr. Ward C9 Moonphase automatic wristwatch looks like a step in the right direction for the relatively young watchmaker.
The iconic TAG Heuer Aquaracer family of watches finally get a handful of new members that have their stainless steel bezels replaced with ceramic ones.
Jaquet Droz Grande Heure Minute Quantieme collection was designed for those people who believe that a dress watch must only be worn with formal attire
Fortis Terrestis Hedonist automatic wrist watch delivers a winning combination of elegant styling, and robust movement offered at a fairly affordable price
With its extremely precise mechanism and a nice sporty case, the new Grand Seiko 55th Anniversary Spring Drive Chronograph (ref. SBGC013) looks like a perfect (if not a bit overpriced) choice for a person who already has a collection of Speedmasters and wants to spice it with a lot more technologically advanced timekeeper from Japan.
The new Graham Silverstone RS Racing collection is offered in three finishes that you can buy either individually or as a set with a pair of nice sunglasses (paying an impressive amount of around $18,000). Although the device doesn't look groundbreaking in any way, it is still a very gadget for a person who prefers fresh-looking sporty timekeepers to time-proven (and thus a bit boring) devices from major watchmaking brands.
The new Oris Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 111, as the name implies, is powered by the Swiss brand's new Caliber 111 hand-wound movement. Developed and built on their own premises, the beautiful mechanism not only makes this new timekeeper even more exclusive, but also shows quite clearly that Oris has enough resources to make a wonderful caliber that, at least in terms of functionality and efficiency, rivals those recently introduced by a lot more established watchmaking houses.
The Swiss watchmaking specialist has recently introduced a new limited edition Breitling Aerospace Evo Night Mission chronograph wristwatch
The new Pierre DeRoche TNT Royal Retro GMT 1/2 Hour is basically the same TNT Royal Retro RB model that we have seen many times before, but with a new complication that makes it not only fancy looking, but also quite useful for frequent travelers.
The new Frederique Constant Vintage Rally Healey automatic chronograph watch makes an impression of a very well-designed accessory. While I wouldn't call it 'revolutionary' or 'groundbreaking', it successfully combines standard elements of design into a very attractive time measuring device. Oh, some purists would probably wince a little at the way they use gold-plating to make a stainless steel body look dressier, but I find nothing wrong with it: for those on a tight budget, a gold-plated watch is an excellent choice.
