While the 2008 GT XL Chrono with its silver dial and the GT XL GMT with its 18K rose gold case look definitely gorgeous, the Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono Speed Black chronometer watch is absolutely stunning.
The Swiss watchmaker has presented its new DeWitt Academia Night Chronograph (Ref. AC.6005.53.M255) automatic watch. Delivered in a massive rose gold body of three different varieties that are inspired by long-gone days of Golden Age that preceded the Great Depression of the 1930s, the timepiece's main point of attraction is its very unusual gear-shaped bezel that is matched by similarly styled case sides. Although to some the look of the device may look a bit too extreme, I am sure that it will find its share of customers even despite its obscenely high MSRP.

The recently unveiled DOXA SUB 5000T Seaconqueror diving watch is officially promoted to the flagship status. Featuring all the usual design traits from the reputable Swiss watchmaker, the device, which is offered in a deliberately aggressive-looking design with lots of protruding parts that may make you hurt somebody if not used with care, the device makes a very strong impression: it doesn't take an expert to see that with this model Doxa really means business. Designed to withstand water pressure of up to 5000 feet (approximately 1500 meters), the new range-topping Seaconqueror 5000T model will be limited to only 5000 examples.

The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control 1833 Ultra Thin has a good chance of biting a healthy chunk of flesh off a market of deceptively simple while extremely elegant luxury timepieces, which is currently dominated by Patek Philippe's Calatrava family. With its remarkably clean design, which is both pleasant to look at and easy to read, the new dress watch has a good chance of becoming as desirable and highly sought after as the legendary Reverso line.

The Swiss Manufacture Audemars Piguet has revealed its new Royal Oak Carbon Concept Tourbillon and Chronograph watch (Reference 26265FO.OO.D002CR.01). Light as a Formula 1 car and sturdy as a Russian tank, this is the first watch with both case and movement made of so called "forged" carbon. Although the exterior design of this timekeeper looks a little bit too high tech to me, I must admit that, among all the recently introduced "sporty" chronographs, this is one offers the most balanced combination of cutting edge technologies and classic complications. If the Swiss brand will ever decide to make a one-off version for some charity event, I am sure that will beat a record or two when it comes to maximum price and a top number of bidders.
