Chr. Ward C61 Trident-Pro Automatic Diver British watches

Considered by many watch enthusiasts as an entry-level "Swiss Made" watch of choice, the famous Trident C60 has recently got significantly smaller. As the bulky 42 millimeters of the original model were often too massive for buyers of the skinny type, this Chr. Ward C61 Trident-Pro will probably fit any medium- and small-sized wrist. And if you think that orange is just too bright for you (and it is, just trust me), there are two more color combinations to choose from.

Chr. Ward C8 Regulator Pilot British watches

The British watchmaker Christopher Ward, a brand that offers watches that are not only well designed, but are also affordable and reliable (a rare mix in this segment), has finally started taking pre-orders for its new Chr. Ward C8 Regulator watch that was first announced back in June as "C800" model. Featuring an aviator-style design, which is very similar to their recently announced Chr. Ward Typhoon chronograph, the watch offers an extremely legible and surprisingly well-balanced dial layout.

Arnold & Son DBS Double Balance & Sidereal Time (Ref. 1DSAP.W01A.C120P) British watches / Swiss Watches

Although, at a first glance, the new Arnold & Son DBS (Ref. 1DSAP.W01A.C120P) hand-wound watch seems to be inspired by the gorgeous Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre family, it is in fact a tribute to a pair of much older timekeepers that were made by John Roger Arnold between 1796 and 1799 respectively. Both watches were able to display mean solar and sidereal time on two separate sub-dials and featured an ingenuous bimetallic thermo-compensated Z balance.

Geo.Graham The Moon Tourbillon Limited Edition British watches

It is not the first time that the British brand introduces a watch with a tourbillon escapement (back in 2009 they started selling a monstrous Graham Chronofighter Trigger Tourbillograph Havana (ref. 2TTAR.C01A.C87B) model), however, the new Geo.Graham The Moon (ref. 2GGAP.U01A.C128B) hand-wound watch definitely looks like their opus magnum both in terms of exterior design and technical ingenuity.

Graham Chronofighter Prodive Professional 600M Diver (Ref. 2CDAV-B02A) British watches / Swiss Watches

It looks, just like it is with their new Graham Chronofighter Prodive Professional diving watch, the British-based brand has finally found a good use for its (in)famous trigger-style chronograph push-piece. Capable of starting, stopping and resetting the chronograph even deep under water, the trigger looks like an ideal choice for a watch, which is supposed to be operated by gloved hands. I mean, just imagine how comfortable it could be to operate the time measuring complication in situations where you just don't have time to feel a small, traditionally shaped pusher whether it is located somewhere on the piece's back or even on the winding crown itself!

Chr. Ward Makaira Pro 500 Automatic Diver (Ref. C11-MAK-SKWSI) British watches

Mostly known for their "tributes" to more expensive, legendary (or, in other words, class-defining) models like Rolex Submariner, IWC Portuguese and the likes, the British-based watchmaking brand, however, sometimes offers a lot more original watches of their own design. The new Chr. Ward Makaira Pro 500 (Ref. C11-MAK-SKWSI) diving watch belongs to the latter breed of timekeepers that an enthusiast can easily wear without losing a tiniest bit of his self-respect.

Graham Silverstone Stowe Racing Mexico Limited Edition 100 Automatic Chronograph (Ref. 2BLDC.B27A) British watches

Watchmaking brands all over the civilized world (especially those that have a sporty model or two in their vast product ranges) LOVE to be associated with the high-revving world of motor sports and the guys that tend to win a lot of races. The British watchmaker Graham is absolutely no exception here. That's why they dedicated their new Graham Silverstone Stowe Racing Mexico Limited Edition 100 watch to Mr. Mario Dominguez, a Mexican racing driver that, according to Wikipedia, had competed in the CART and CCWS Champ Car series and even had his podium in the famous IndyCar Series back in 2008.
