Presented in the Spring of 2008, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Everose (Ref. 116505) automatic chronograph comes packed in a flawlessly executed case crafted from their exclusive “Everose” alloy.

The 2008 Glycine Incursore Power Reserve DLC (ref. 3880) is an ultimate military gadget: it is as simple, as it is highly legible, and it is as scratch-resistant as it is reliable. It could almost an ultimate accessory if not its price: charging whole four grands (okay, it’s a “recommended” price, but still don’t expect to find a watch below $3200 mark) for a watch that sports nothing more impressive than a mass-market automatic caliber is a bit extreme to me. After all, for the money, you can find a good used Omega in mint condition equipped with a more exclusive movement.

Although the new CVSTOS Challenge Tourbillon Yachting Club will possibly fail to stun you with extreme legibility or painstakingly measured proportions, its skillfully decorated maze of indicators and displays with ice-cold platinum accented by warm, maritime-inspired wood makes quite a strong impression when you see this ultra-expensive gadget the very first time. Whether impression will be lasting, is another question.

Based on the slim COSC-certified ETA 2836-2 movement, the new Mido Baroncelli Chronometer Jubilee is just another proof that classic is always cool. Also, it tries to tell you that you don’t need to be a millionaire to afford a dressy watch.
