The new Bell & Ross BR 03-94 Carbon Orange limited edition automatic watch is easily recognizable thanks to its boxy case and diamond-shaped hands, perfectly legible with its high-contrast color scheme and, all in all, is a nicely designed model. What more do you expect from a pilot's watch made by one of the most outstanding brands among Swiss watchmakers? Perhaps, a movement of higher pedigree would be a good start. Still, if you are not after a hand-made in-house caliber that powers a watch that costs more than a Korean SUV, this one may be one of the most well-balanced choices for you.
Yesterday, the Swiss manufacturer has introduced its new Breitling for Bentley 6.75 Midnight Carbon limited edition wrist watch. Created in partnership with the German-owned, British-based maker of ultra-luxury cars, the monstrous timepiece features all the usual design elements of the family and, as usual, comes in a fairly small lot of 1000 individually numbered pieces. Like a number of their recent offerings, it is offered in a sexy black (or very dark grey) finish that, unlike models treated with PVD coating process, will not show minor dents and scratches.
Based on their current Oris Big Crown X1 Calculator (Ref. 01 675 7648 4264-07 5 23 77) model that was first released three years ago, the new Oris Big Crown Timer Chronograph (Ref. 675 7648 4234 LS) automatic pilot's watch features only subtle cosmetic changes that, however, make all the difference: as cluttered as the base version is, the gadget still somehow manages to look cleaner and is more easier to read.
Hamilton Khaki X-Wind Chronograph collection was recently updated with a limited edition wrist watch.
The new Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Supercharged brings you the good old Pontos S diving watch in a significantly bigger body
Sporting the usual sturdy-looking body crowned with a visually complex unidirectional rotating bezel, the new Victorinox Swiss Army Dive Master 500 Limited Edition features a more interesting dial and is, for a change, equipped with a mechanical movement made by ETA.
Although, unlike some electronic timekeepers, the new Archimede SportTaucher Kompass doesn't have a real compass function, you can still use this little gadget to impress your girlfriend by finding north (or south)
At the upcoming trade show in Basel, the Swiss watchmaker will present its new Tissot T-Complication Chronometer wrist watch. Although the name of the timekeeper would better suit something more aggressively designed and equipped with anything less complicated than a tourbillon, the watch still looks extremely attractive offering a serene, elegant (although some might call it a bit generic) appearance. In fact, the timepiece seems to be a nice choice for a young person getting his first job in the City.
