Deep Blue Master 2000 10 Year Anniversary Automatic Diver in Black/Orange (ref. M2KILBLKORGBLKORG) American

Introduced to celebrate the brand's tenth anniversary, the new Deep Blue Master 2000 10 Year Anniversary collection is currently offered in a choice of three color schemes including two versions in black and blue that feature a combination of white and orange accents. The version in black and orange (ref. M2KILBLKORGBLKORG,) which is reviewed in this article, is the most interesting -or at least the most striking- among them. Delivering an impressive level of legibility in all lighting scenarios that I can imagine and combining good build quality of the case and bracelet with dependability of a time-proven Swiss made movement, it may be a bit expensive compared to their earlier models of similar design, but still offers good value for money if you can afford one.


Nixon 51-30 Darth Vader Automatic Limited Edition American

The upcoming premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is just a couple of months away and Nixon has already unveiled a number of Star Wars-themed timekeepers. There, if I understand correctly, will be sort of 'official' watches of the series. Besides the inevitable "Stormtroopers", and "Imperial Pilots", there is also a full-black Nixon 51-30 Darth Vader: a limited edition device that pays homage to the most iconic character of the series. And, yes: all three models are dedicated to agents of the dark side of the Force. Ah, that irresistible attractiveness of Evil!


Deep Blue Daynight T-100 GMT Chronograph American

Just wanted to give you a brief heads up regarding a new offering from a small American watchmaker Deep Blue Watches. They have just updated their Daynight range with a Deep Blue Daynight T100 GMT Chronograph. Still capable of withstanding the water pressure of up to 50ATM, it can now be used by especially busy combat divers and other special forces operators featuring not one or two, but whole three time zones. Well, sort of.


Deep Blue Sea Ram 500 Ceramic Diver American / Quartz

If you plan to spend the 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 an affordable Deep Blue Sea Ram 500 diver that combines an impressive water resistance rating with a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel: a rare mix in its price range.


Shinola Wright Brothers Limited Edition (Ref. S0100052) American / Quartz

Can you imagine a shoe polish company turning into a watchmaker that sells its "Built in Detroit" quartz-powered watches for $500-$1000? Well, Shinola, previously a maker of "America's Largest-Selling Shoe Polish", is just that company. After their brand was acquired by an investment group, the famous trademark suddenly appeared not only on watches but also on bikes, all sort of premium-priced leather goods, and even soft drinks. With this limited edition Shinola Wright Brothers (ref. S0100052), the Detroit-based brand starts a whole series of timekeepers paying homage to famous Americans who gave humanity the wings to fly.


Deep Blue Master Diver 1000 Automatic American

Available at MSRP of $499 -and currently offered on their official website at just $400- this new Deep Blue Master Diver 1000 automatic diving tool doesn't look particularly flashy. On the contrary, the new Master Diver is deliberately dull, almost as dull as a wrench or a hammer can be. With every brushed surface, with every massive part, it declares: "Look at me! I am a professional instrument! I am a beater that you can take every place you go to!" Well, it looks like it tells the truth.


Mk. II Fulcrum Automatic Diver American

Assembled in the United States, powered by a high-grade Swiss-made movement, and bearing a price tag close to $2000 USD, the new Mk. II Fulcrum automatic diver is a bit too expensive to my taste, but it still looks great. Also, I dig their decision to tweak its exterior design here and there in order to make the refreshed timekeeper ahem less similar to the original that the previous version paid homage to.


Deep Blue Daynight 32 T100 Automatic Diver American

The 2013 Deep Blue Daynight 32 T100 brings you all features that you may expect from the American brand: impressive water resistance that makes suitable for real diving, sturdy body that was probably inspired by a sledge hammer, a reliable self-winding movement made in another country, and the usual set of tritium tubes that glow brightly virtually for decades without needing any recharging.


Deep Blue Daynight Recon T100 White 500M American

Here comes another good one from the young American watchmakers. The semi-professional Deep Blue Daynight Recon T100 White Automatic diver gives you an easily recognizable (although not terribly unique) design with elegant dial sporting the brand's signature luminous tritium tubes and an impressive water resistance rating of 500 meters.
