British watches / Swiss Watches

The fresh Bremont Victory Chronograph automatic wrist watch that was officially presented early last month during the Baselworld 2012 trade show belongs to a new (and still quite rare) breed of timekeepers that are powered by the relatively new La Joux-Perret 8310 ebauche. Designed and made in Switzerland, this movement offers not only adequate power reserve, but also brings you a flashy (and irresistibly vintage) dial layout with a pair of retrograde displays that look like wings of a beautiful butterfly.

Arnold & Son True Beat 88 (Ref. 1TBAP.B01A.C113A) British watches

The British watchmakers Arnold & Son have just released a new, interesting timepiece that sports a complication you will rarely see in timekeepers from major watch manufacturers. As one can gather from its name, the new sporty Arnold & Son True Beat 88 (Ref. 1TBAP.B01A.C113A) hand-wound watch features a "dead beat" small seconds hand that makes precisely 60 jumps per minute.

The British start-up Schofield Watch Company has recently launched its new pair of Schofield Signalman GMT PR (Power Reserve) automatic watches. Both featuring the same dial layout, the watches differ only with the finish of their cases: one of them is in glossy, polished steel and the other features a matte black, scratch-resistant DLC coating. Of course, my heart is with the military-inspired version of the watch.

With its new Dent Denison limited edition made-to-order watch the young British watchmaking brand tries to get its toe into the market of premium, ultra-exclusive mechanical timepieces, that is currently dominated by the Swiss-based maisons.
