If you plan to spend the upcoming holidays at a sea resort, there is good news for you from the American brand Deep Blue Watches. As prolific as they are (well, in a good meaning of the adjective), the guys have recently introduced a very affordable Deep Blue Sea Ram 500 diving watch that also combines an impressive water resistance rating with a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel: a rare mix in its price range.
The stately Overseas collection has recently been updated with a version with a lacquered blue dial and a leather band of the same noble color. Aptly named Vacheron Constantin Overseas Blue Chronograph (Ref. 49150/000A-9745), the new watch is currently available exclusively in the United States and in VC boutiques.
With this Shinola Wright Brothers limited edition watch (ref. S0100052), the Detroit-based brand starts a whole series of timekeepers paying homage to famous Americans.
Back in December 2010 when the Swiss manufacturer was going to celebrate the 80th anniversary of its iconic 1931 Reverso model, the brand has introduced an absolutely gorgeous Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute to 1931 Limited Edition watch. The timekeeper proved to be so popular among thousands fans that exactly a year later JLC introduced an even more appealing Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso 1931 Rouge Hand-Wound and a year still a splendid Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Duoface Bleu model. This year, the company introduces Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931 (ref. Q2782560) watch that features a slightly different, but even more historically correct dial.
Released in a deliberately oversized body and available in three dial colors, the new Citizen Military Eco-Drive BME delivers all that you can expect from a "tactical" watch except, possibly, for a nice set of tritium gas tubes that would really make it look cool.

Preparing for the upcoming SIHH 2014 industry event, the legendary Italian brand is about to begin yet another heavy artillery barrage of new model announcements. Among the first shells to blast the ground near you is their new Panerai Luminor 1950 Left-Handed 3 Days (PAM 557) model. Equipped with their in-house hand-wound caliber, the watch is designed for that strange sort of people that strum guitar with their lefts and wear their watches on their rights.
Introduced right before the holidays, the new Breitling Super Avenger Military Limited Edition watch brings to your doors just about everything that you can expect from a contemporary "luxury tactical" timekeeper made by one of Swiss most famous watchmaking Juggernauts: it is huge, it is black and it is powered by a COSC-certified chronometer movement.
Next month, during the upcoming SIHH 2014 show, VC will officially reveal its new Vacheron Constantin Malte High Jewellery Tourbillon (ref. 30630/000G-9899) wrist watch. Featuring 418 baguette-cut diamonds on its body, crown, dial and even on the white gold folding clasp, the watch features an "invisible setting" technique that demands a team of highly skilled designers and jewelers and literally hundreds of man-hours for each timekeeper.
