If you think that Atomic Timekeeping is cool, think again! Keeping you watch up to date with half a dozen of old-school broadcasting stations is as XX century as a gasoline-powered Corvette compared to Tesla Roadster. Fighting inherent flaws of quartz mechanisms, which, like their older fully mechanical ancestors, can still be heavily affected by such external factors as temperature and sometimes even humidity, the Japanese watchmaker Citizen is going to start selling its beautiful Citizen Eco-Drive Satellite Wave (ref. CC0005-06E) limited edition watch that captures the day, date and time signals directly from GPS navigation satellites!

The Japanese watch brand has revealed its new Casio Men In Dark Purple (MIDP) GF-1000BP-1DR Frogman electronic diving watch that will go on sale in April 2011.

The new Longines Column-Wheel Chronograph Record automatic watch comes equipped with a strange-looking direct-drive second hand with a vernier scale
The Swiss watchmaker and the German-owned British car manufacturer present yet another co-branded Breitling for Bentley Barnato Racing automatic chronograph watch.
Celebrating its 130th year in business, the Japanese jewelry and precision instruments-maker has presented its new Grand Seiko 130th Anniversary Limited Edition hand-wound watch, which is going to available both in Europe and North America. Looking like it's having the legendary Patek Philippe Calatrava line of minimalistic dress watches in its fine crosshairs, the new Commemorative Edition makes a subtle, but very firm stress on the "Grand" part of Grand Seiko brand.
Ladies watch / Swiss Watches
