The new Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Worldtimer (the model with reference number C01-43AWT2-S00W0-CC with a "Camel" leather strap is reviewed here, but there are two more versions available with "Tan" and "Blue" leather bands,) is the young watchmaking brand's latest attempt to conquer the niche of dressy UTC watches. This time, the watch offers a better calculated combination of good qulity, great exterior, and a nice automatic movement that is equipped with a complication that is manufactured exclusively for Chr. Ward by its long-standing Swiss-based partner.

Grand Seiko Sport Collection Spring Drive GMT Limited Edition (Ref. SBGE245G)

Grand Seiko Sport Collection Spring Drive GMT Limited Edition (Ref. SBGE245G)

In a matter of days, the Japanese conglomerate Seiko will start selling the new Grand Seiko Sport Collection Spring Drive GMT Limited Edition (Ref. SBGE245G) hybrid-powered wristwatch. With the luxury gadget being limited to the Japanese domestic market, the watch will be a bit difficult to come by if you happen to live on the other side of the globe. Yet, the device is so beautiful, so impressive that is seems to be absolutely worth going into all the trouble to get one.

Steinhart Nav.B-Chrono 47 Baumuster B Grey Edition (ref. 106-0877)

Earlier this year, the German watchmaker Steinhart has issued their new take on the concept of a "vintage-modern pilot's watch". Successfully blending vintage exterior with a classic caliber and modern CNC machinery, the new Steinhart Nav.B-Chrono 47 Baumuster B Grey Edition (ref. 106-0877) offers, perhaps, the best "value for money" ratio for those interested in buying a relatively affordable brand new pilot's timekeeper.

Breitling Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Limited Edition in Collaboration with MR PORTER

Created in collaboration with MR PORTER, one of their major partners that sells all things luxury, the new Breitling Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 is limited to just 1000 pieces, packs a great in-house chronograph caliber, and, as real estate agents like to say, is priced to sell in a market over-saturated with equally elegant pilot's watches produced by well-established brands like Omega and IWC.

Casio G-Shock Rangeman (ref. GPR-B1000-1 / 1B) with Solar-Assisted GPS Navigation

To some, the new Casio G-Shock Rangeman (ref. GPR-B1000-1 / 1B) line of adventure watches may look like a glorified steam engine trying to compete with sleek and glossy bullet trains. Still, offering solar-assisted GPS navigation, adequate (although not stunning) battery life, as well as a bunch of other usable (the watch won't bother you with incoming messages alarms, but will let you retrace your route step by step if you somehow get lost in a wilderness) functions, this gadget looks like a reliable backup for your standalone professional GPS tracker.

Buyer’s Guide: 15 Best Pilot’s Watches to Choose From

Looking at our stats, I see that demand for recommendations regarding diving watches is a seasonal thing with most visitors coming in summer and then gradually declining till Christmas only to start growing again in early January. "Pilots" are different animals: I have an impression that people are always interested in "aviators" regardless of the time of season. So, for your reading pleasure, a choice of fifteen timekeepers from under $200 to more than $10,000 as priced by online retailers that I find worthy of being considered while shopping for your new (or maybe your very first!) pilot's watch this year.

Historic Re-Issue: DOXA Sub 300 “Black Lung” Limited Edition

This year, Doxa has released a number of "anniversary" timekeepers that celebrate the brand's first semicentennial in the business of making professional diving watches. While the gorgeous blackfaced Sharkhunter and the silverfaced Searambler attracted their fair share of attention from collectors and, um, more normal enthusiasts alike, it was the DOXA Sub 300 "Black Lung" Limited Edition automatic diving wristwatch that broke the brand's own sales record with the whole bunch of watches being pre-ordered during the first 24 hours after the registration officially commenced.

Hamilton Khaki Navy Scuba Automatic (ref. H82305931)

With this gorgeous Hamilton Khaki Navy Scuba Automatic (ref. H82305931,) the Swiss-based watchmaker that mostly deals in relatively affordable timekeeping instruments not simply expands its line of diving companions. It finally offers a wristwatch that is not just "different" from the rest of the crowd, but -unlike their last year's Navy Frogman- can actually be worn by a casual person without attracting weird glances from persons who "just don't get it."
