Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture Ladies (ref. FC-703VD3SD4)

The new Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture Ladies (ref. FC-703VD3SD4) automatic wrist watch is not only one of the finest timekeepers introduced so far by the brand. It is also one of those (still few) models of the Swiss watchmaker that is powered not by a slightly redecorated version of a run off the mill blank movement made either by ETA or Sellita, but by a new caliber that was developed and built on their own production facilities. That says something, right?

Oris Thelonious Monk Limited Edition Automatic (Ref. 733 7712 4085)

Known for its love for music, the Swiss watchmaker has recently introduced its limited edition Oris Thelonious Monk (ref. 733 7712 4085) automatic wrist watch. Although in certain respects this new model may look very unfamiliar to a person who usually associated the brand with their gorgeous chronographs and divers, it is in fact deeply rooted into the manufacture’s philosophy of industrial design. As the legendary sculptor of the past, they took a piece of metal and removed everything that didn’t belong there leaving only the truly essential elements that make an ordinary watch a true masterpiece.

Perrelet First Class Double Rotor Skeleton 20th Anniversary

The new Perrelet First Class Double Rotor Skeleton 20th Anniversary self-winding wrist watch pays tribute to the good old Dipteros 1777 model that the Swiss brand issued back in 1995. It was the first watch ever to feature so called “double rotor” design with a front oscillating weight visible freely on the timekeeper’s face. In fact, it is the watch that is a grandfather of their current iconic Turbine family. It was officially presented last week during Baselworld 2015 show.

Breitling Galactic Unitime SleekT Automatic

The new Breitling Galactic Unitime SleekT may be not as technically advanced as a GPS-capable Seiko Astron, however it clearly has mojo similar to the Swiss brand’s most iconic pilot’s watches, only in a more subtle, more refined way.

Breitling Colt 36 Ladies SuperQuartz

With its refreshed Breitling Colt 36 SuperQuartz model, the Swiss brand finally notices ladies targeted in Dove’s famous Real Beauty campaign. Designed with slightly larger wrist in mind, the watch however will probably be a bit too large for a skinnier type of girls that French fashion houses seem to love so much. Well, let’s celebrate some diversity here!

Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar 45mm

The 2015 Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar looks like a revisited variation of a similarly named timekeeper that the Swiss-based brand has presented less than a year ago. Featuring a much more convincing exterior and sporting basically the same list of functions, this is a very nice gadget for persons leading truly active lifestyle. The only thing that slightly detracts from its simplistic awesomeness is, perhaps, the lack of ruggedness: while the piece’s altimeter is good for 4478 meters, you probably don’t want to take it mountain-climbing.

Ball Engineer II Magneto S (Ref. NM3022C-N1CJ-BK)

The new Ball Engineer II Magneto S (ref. NM3022C-N1CJ-BK) features a very interesting combination of sporty -albeit a bit deceptive- exterior with a reliable -even if a bit too standard- mechanism. However, what makes this new gadget truly stand out from the ranks of other magnetically shielded wristwatches is the way the shielding system actually works.
