The new limited edition Harry Winston Premier Excenter Perpetual Calendar Platinum not only praises the American brand's success as a watchmaker, but also comes powered by a wonderful self-winding movement created by one of the leading Swiss-based watch manufacturers. Offering an off-centered dial layout with whole two retrograde displays and a nicely done moonphase indicator, the new device gives you an idea of how a 1930s American timekeeper would look like if they have had highly-precise CNC machinery and CAD software back then.
Featuring cluttered dial and an oversized body, the new Victorinox Swiss Army AirBoss Mach 6 Power Gauge doesn't look like a very practical wristwatch. However, the way it is designed and the way its mechanical movement is finished makes it a very nice fashion accessory for those who always dreamed about accomplishing a tour of duty on a real aircraft carrier.
The Italian-based fashion and jewelry brand Bvlgari keeps adding new exclusive models to its elegant Diagono collection. Trying to keep their accessories as upscale as practically possible, the brand issues this new Bvlgari Diagono Retrograde Moonphase (ref. DGP42BGLDMP) wristwatch in almost prohibitively priced massive rose gold case that is powered by their own automatic movement. Coming as a -relatively- limited edition model and featuring their traditional exaggerated design, it will possibly sell off quite fast thanks to its brief, but dramatic cameo on Robert Downey Jr's wrist at the latest Iron Man blockbuster.
Maybe not as classy and well-advertised as the major Swiss watch manufactures, the relatively young Bertolucci brand is nevertheless capable of producing a sort of wrist watches characterized by their stark and well-balanced design. Their new Bertolucci Serena Garbo Chronograph (ref. 3188.8.131.52D), for example, features a surprisingly reach design language with lots of well-chosen details that together form a very solid-looking quartz timekeeper: a rare thing in a niche dominated by watches featuring crude (sometimes, deliberately so) approach to design.
Oris has presented yet another member of its growing collection of diving watches. Delivered in a mildly oversized stainless steel case, the new Oris Divers GMT Date automatic diving watch is available both on trendy rubber strap (ref. 01 668 7639 8454-07 4 24 34EB) and a more practical solid steel bracelet (ref. 01 668 7639 8454-07 8 24 01PEB) that features security folding clasp with wetsuit extension.
The Swiss watch manufacture will soon start selling its new IWC UTC Edition Antoine de Saint Exupery limited edition automatic watch.
The German watch maker Ickler GmbH (which is better known for its more expensive Limes brand) has introduced a pair of new members to its Archimede Black Pilot series. Offering the same deliberately anonymous design as dozens of other affordable wristwatches out there that are styled after the iconic B-Uhr timekeepers immortalized by the German Luftwaffe (compare them, for example, to Steinhart Nav B-Uhr collection and it would be hard to tell the difference,) this watch attempts to win your attention combining three main factors: great Swiss Made self-winding caliber, unrivaled customization ability, and, of course, the matte-black coating that makes the watch as stealthy as a night bomber and as durable as a gun.
Thirty years ago Audemars Piguet revealed world's first ultra-thin self-winding perpetual calendar watch. This year, the Swiss watch manufacture presented its special anniversary edition Jules Audemars 30th Anniversary Perpetual Calendar (Ref. 26000PT.OO.D028CR.01).
