Fortis B42 Phantoms Phorever Flieger Chronograph Swiss Watches

Last week, the Swiss brand Fortis has presented a limited edition Fortis B42 Phantoms Phorever Flieger Chronograph watch that pays homage to the legendary McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II: a twin-engine combat aircraft that not only ensured US air superiority in Vietnam, but also fought in many other conflicts throughout the world, including numerous Arab-Israeli wars, the Iran-Iraq War and, of course, the Falklands War.

Jaquet Droz The Eclipse Ivory Enamel (Ref. J012613200) Swiss Watches

First revealed a year ago with a sexy jet-black onyx dial, the updated Jaquet Droz Eclipse has been reissued in an even dressier version with its face finished with ivory Grand Feu enamel (which is not only pleasant to look at, but is also very difficult to manufacture on an industrial scale). Although the beige-colored plate of the J012613200 doesn't do a particularly good job mimicking a night sky, it still makes the watch a perfect choice for those looking for a dressy moon-phase timekeeper.

Technomarine BlackReef Ti Ultimate Automatic Swiss Watches

Presented in a lightweight titanium body, the new Technomarine BlackReef Ti Ultimate watch features a highly reliable automatic movement and is adorned with whole 54 precious stones covering its unidirectional rotating bezel. In case you wonder, yes: those clear white, jet black and shiny yellow crystals are in fact real baguette-cut diamonds that also happen to work as markers on the diving scale. And, yes: with its water resistance rating of 50 ATM, this is an actual diver although using it as such would be utterly crazy. And, yes: so far, this is the most bizarre diver that we have seen among this year's premieres.

Patek Philippe Gondolo 8 Days (Ref. 5200G) in White Gold Swiss Watches

Patek Philippe doesn't seem to be especially consistent when it comes to design of their Gondolo series specifically or rectangular watches in general. The things that they seem to share is an elongated body and, of course, a brilliantly executed mechanism that powers the gadget. Among the three models of the series that are currently present on the Swiss brand's corporate web-site, the 2013 Patek Philippe Gondolo 8 Days (Ref. 5200G) is the most exciting with its finely crafted case and deliciously complicated, exquisitely finished movement.

Oris Royal Flying Doctor Service Automatic (Ref. 01 735 7672 4084-Set LS) Swiss Watches

With its new Oris Royal Flying Doctor Service (Ref. 01 735 7672 4084-Set LS) that was presented last week at Baselworld 2013, the Swiss-based maker of affordable timekeepers keeps exploring the niche of vintage styled watches with a sweet modern flavor. Featuring the same 44 mm body with the easily recognizable grooved bezel as their previous "pilots" (like, say, the classic Oris Challenge International de Tourisme 1932 Limited Edition), the device also sports a quite contemporary dial with its hands and scales resembling instrument gauges on military planes.

Deep Blue CalDiver USA 500 Full Calendar Automatic Diver American watches

The young American watchmaking brand updates its CalDiver 500 small family of large diving watches with a yet new edition. Called Deep Blue CalDiver USA 500, the new watch differs from its siblings not only with a restyled dial, but also with a silk screen USA flag, which is combined with the brand's logo and is clearly visible through the transparent case back of the piece.
