The Swiss watchmaker Chopard has extended its last year's Happy Sport Mark II collection with new All Black model, which is now available in two versions: one with a fixed bezel set with almost four dozens of beautifully cut diamonds, and the other featuring a sportier design with a rather standard unidirectional rotating bezel with a diving time scale. Both feature matte black PVD finish that makes a perfect background for the moving diamonds on their dials.
With its signature styling and a well-chosen automatic movement that keeps it ticking, new Bvlgari Diagono Calibro 303 Chronograph looks like a very nice choice for a person in search for a sportier kind of a reliable timekeeper that doesn't try to look like your average run-off-the-mill Omega or Breitling.
Right after presenting its limited edition SUB 5000T Seaconqueror model, the Swiss watchmaker reveals its new DOXA SUB 600T-Graph series of diving watches. Looking mean and cool, the gadget is rated for 600 m of water resistance and is legible enough to give you all necessary information at a single glance.
O sancta simplicitas! These are the first words that come to mind when I see the new a.b.art MM series (refs. MM 101 & MM 102) from the Swiss-based watchmaking brand. The Swiss company is known for its very minimalist design language that is heavily influenced by the Bauhaus movement, yet their new MM series is the simplicity in its purest form. And I must admit that we here at WorldWatchReview.com are extremely delighted to see this beautiful timekeeper. While some may find its exterior oversimplified, I would argue that this is one of the most refined "simple" dressy watches currently available in this price range.
The Swiss-based watchmaking company that mostly specializes in fashion timekeepers, but also has a long history of making refined "classic" timekeepers has just revealed its new Alfex Big Adventure quartz watch. Powered by a Swiss made quartz movement manufactured by Ronda, the watch features sporty and energetic (alas, definitely inexpensive-looking, probably millenials-oriented) design with a rather unorthodox open calendar layout and an off-centered small seconds counter at 7 o'clock.
Like the legendary British car manufacturer, the new Jaeger LeCoultre AMVOX 3 Tourbillon GMT Aston Martin wrist watch (Ref. 193 C4 50) offers you a breathtaking combination of an outstanding engine full of technological innovations and as complex as a modern watch caliber can be, and a meticulously crafted body with its open-working dial somehow managing to be extremely legible while putting on display the timekeeper's inner workings. Although the timepiece lacks the usual transponder chip that would allow you to open and start the sports car, it is still worth every single penny that the Swiss brand plans to charge for it.
The idea of creating a watch with a rotating internal bezel that could be operated by an external unit is not terribly new. However, it is this new Oris BC4 Flight Timer (Ref. 690 7615 41 54 LS) timepiece that the Swiss-based brand presented at Baselworld 2008 show that puts the whole concept on its head.
Has it ever occurred to you that two counters is enough for a normal chronograph, that three is okay and even four is nothing but tolerable (and only look good on certain watches like this Eberhard & Co. Chrono4 BADBOY)? Well, some people at Omega consider five counters just right for a watch made by the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932. Positioned like the famous five Olympic Rings, but apparently not sized as evenly, the counters add a "days of week" indicator and a 7-day chronograph display to the usual hours, minutes and small second sub-dials.
