Chopard 24 Hours of Le Mans 2015 Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Jacky Ickx Edition (Ref. 168535-3003) Swiss

The new Chopard 24 Hours of Le Mans 2015 Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Jacky Ickx Edition (Ref. 168535-3003) (wow, that's a really long name indeed) is, for all practical purposes, simply a new iteration of last year's Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 ref. 168535-3002 model. The only thing that makes it visually different is a set of new color accents on the dial and bezel flange. Now also proudly wearing Jacky Ickx's signature on its engraved case back cover, the watch was originally designed to celebrate long standing partnership between the two high-end brands, but, it so happened that it also praises Porsche's decisive victory at 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans.


Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Chronograph Big Date Quartz Quartz / Swiss

The new Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Chronograph Big Date wristwatch expands the Swiss brand's line of affordable diving companions with yet another product. Featuring a reliable and accurate quartz mechanism packed into a visually attractive, nicely sculpted stainless steel body, the timepiece looks like a perfect "first real Swiss watch" choice for a young customer who still can't afford buying "a real thing" be it a member of the same collection powered by a more expensive mechanical movement or something of an entirely different league like, say, an Omega Seamaster or a Breitling Superocean.


Breitling Superocean II 36 Diver for Ladies For Ladies / Swiss

The new Breitling Superocean II 36 Diver sports the usual styling that the series is known for. Basically offering the same men's watch in a slightly smaller size, the timekeeper won't surprise you with new ideas, but will rather deliver the usual blend of sportiness, good build quality and a bullet-proof (albeit, mass produced) mechanism that will keep time as you would expect from a COSC-certified movement. What else there is to want?


Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Vuelo Automatic Swiss

As defiantly eclectic as it is, the new Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Vuelo still makes quite a strong impression with its deliberately oversized stainless steel body and a dial that could make your eyes bleed if only it wasn't matched so convincingly well to the energetic shape of the case. Clearly not designed according to the book that most Swiss-based watchmakers seem to live by, this new wristwatch may be a timekeeper of choice for a person who looks for something entirely different.


Certina Chronographe DS-8 Phase de Lune Quartz Quartz / Swiss

Officially presented during Baselworld 2015 last March, the new Certina Chronographe DS-8 Phase de Lune is a perfect example of a dressy complication watch that somehow manages to combine into a single package an almost stunning exterior, a reliable quartz chronograph movement that, for all things practical blows out of the water almost all advanced electric mechanisms currently available on the market, while spicing all up with a very affordable price. What more do you expect? A free Porsche?


Raymond Weil Nabucco Gibson Limited Edition Chronograph Swiss

While, at a recommended street price of approximately $5300, I have an impression that a normal guitarist would rather to get him- or herself a vintage Gibson SG from 1960s in a mint condition, there is still a good chance that the whole bunch of 200 pieces of the new Raymond Weil Nabucco Gibson Limited Edition chronographs will be sold quite quickly: guitarists have moms, dads, and spouses and this sort of people love to spoil their loved ones with nice gadgets. And this is certainly a nice gadget indeed.


Tudor North Flag with MT5621 Manufacture Caliber Swiss

If the Swiss-based watchmaking brand really wants to get rid of its image of a 'poor man's Rolex', this new Tudor North Flag that seems to be designed as a new flagship model of the company seems to be a step in the right direction. At least, the combination of an in-house mechanism, a cleverly designed case, an elegantly simple dial, and the famous Tudor Rose right below the Arabic numeral "12" make a very strong impression. Whatever the next model be, the brand clearly doesn't plan to dwell on its past forever.


Slim d’Hermes Automatic by Hermes Swiss

The new Slim d'Hermes automatic wristwatch seems to target those iconic Piaget ultra-thin wrist watches that the competing Swiss-based brand seems to be so proud of. Of course, thinness is not the timekeeper's main selling point. The device also offers a very well-balanced, solid design that looks like a serious improvement on their previous attempts, as well as a new self-winding mechanism with micro-rotor design that could technically even be called 'in-house'.


Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time (Ref. 5524) Swiss

The new Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time (ref. 5524) automatic wrist watch was first unveiled around two weeks ago during Baselworld 2015 show. Combining in the same package a 'historic' dial layout of a 1930s pilot's watch with a meticulously sculpted white gold body and an in-house self-winding movement that makes one drown in his own saliva, this is one of the most notable timekeepers presented at the trade fair.


Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture Ladies (ref. FC-703VD3SD4) For Ladies / Swiss

The new Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture Ladies (ref. FC-703VD3SD4) automatic wristwatch is one of the finest timekeepers introduced so far by the brand. It is also one of those (still few) models of the Swiss watchmaker that is powered not by a slightly redecorated version of a run-off-the-mill blank movement made either by ETA or Sellita, but by a new caliber that was developed and built by Frederique Constant on their own production facilities. That says something, right?
