Although not as refined as similarly (base price plus essential options included) priced models from competitors, the new Archimede Klassik 42 Bicolor is certainly worth a look, especially if you are into that sort of rugged beauty that Archimede is known for.
The new Blancpain Ocean Commitment Bathyscaphe Chronographe Flyback automatic diving wristwatch features a stunning ceramic body with elegant blue bezel and dial, sports a water resistance rating of 300 meters, is limited to just 250 numbered pieces, and Blancpain is committed to donate as much as €1000 from each timekeeper sold to various initiative that contribute to make the world ocean a little bit place to live for its billions of dwellers.

While the new Fortis VP-40 "Laging Handa" Patrol Squadron Forty automatic chronograph wristwatch doesn't even try to look different from dozens of other Fortis aviation-inspired chronos, it still offers a very nice combination of a solid-built body with pleasantly massive push-pieces and setting crown, and a dial that, although looking a bit cluttered, nevertheless easy enough to read (only if you don't try to use the standard tachymeter scale on the bezel flange).

If only it wasn't so small!

Amazingly stylish and surprisingly elegant, the new Orient Dyno Alarm collection of inexpensive quartz chronograph makes it possible to look smart and cool without breaking the bank. It is almost like if your Toyota Prius was designed by Bertone.
Although not as technologically advanced as the gorgeous Astron GPS Stratosphere that the Japanese brand has revealed back in February, the new Seiko Prospex Solar Quartz Chronograph (Ref. SSC279) is also about five times less expensive.
Alpina Alpiner 4 Chronograph "Race for Water" Limited Edition wristwatch (ref. AL-860AD5AQ6) has only one major flaw: its total production run will be restricted to just 400 pieces
