The sporty Archimede SportTaucher automatic diving watch is now available with a new feature: a bidirectional rotating bezel graduated with a compass-style 360-degree scale. Although, unlike some electronic timekeepers, the new Archimede SportTaucher K (Kompass) doesn't have a real compass function, you can still use this little gadget to impress your girlfriend by finding north (or south). The only three things that you need to do achieve this are the watch, visible Sun, and a girlfriend.
At the upcoming trade show in Basel, the Swiss watchmaker will present its new Tissot T-Complication Chronometer (ref. T070.406.16.057.00) wrist watch. Although the name of the timekeeper would better suit something more aggressively designed and equipped with anything less complicated than a tourbillon, the watch still looks extremely attractive offering a serene, elegant (although some might call it a bit generic) appearance. In fact, the timepiece seems to be a nice choice for a young person getting his first job in the City.
Celebrating the 90th anniversary of its legendary Meisterstuck pen that Montblanc has first released in 1924, the Swiss luxury brand releases a new Montblanc Meisterstuck Heritage Pulsograph by Minerva dressy wrist watch. Limited to just 90 pieces, the timekeeper, as the name states, features a working mechanical pulsometer: a thing that was quite popular among wealthy medical doctors during the first decades of the last century.
During Baselworld 2014, the Swiss watchmaking brand will put on display a number of very nice watches that make absolutely clear that Tissot is quite serious about increasing its market share when it comes to "affordable" watches. Among the new products, they plan to officially present their new Tissot T-Race Touch Aluminium (ref. T081.420.97.057.03): a new version of their well-known analogue-digital timekeeper that now comes in a sexy aluminum body available in four different colors, those including dark orange (pictured,) and even bright red (ref. T081.420.97.207.00).
Like almost all their recent models belonging to Sporting collection, the new Ralph Lauren Sporting Classic Chronometer features all the familiar design elements that some people would call "easily recognizable", while other would probably refer to as "tiresome". Well, at least the American fashion house has found a design language of its own and seems to be ready to stick to it at all costs.
The Japanese electronics conglomerate Seiko has officially presented its new Seiko Astron Stratosphere GPS-enabled watch. Although currently there is nothing more than a presentation page on their corporate site, it is already clear that the new watch looks a lot more impressive than the high-tech Astron GPS Solar World Timer in black titanium (Ref. SAST001/007) that the Japanese brand started selling in October 2012. Just look at this huge, domed sapphire crystal that covers not only the dial itself, but also the bezel with its luminous UTC city codes. Isn't it amazing?
So far, the beautiful Baume & Mercier Clifton Retrograde Date Automatic, the new watch in the growing Clifton collection of affordable dress watches that was presented back in January at SIHH 2014 show, looks like the most advanced member of the family. Although the mechanism that powers it is just a usual ETA 2892-2 ebauche with a complication module sitting atop of it, the watch still looks very elegant and refined and, if you are not obsessed with technical features, could become a very nice companion if you plan to wear it with business suit.
About two years ago, the Swiss watchmaker has introduced its vintage-styled Startimer Classic three-hander (Ref. AL-525SCR4S6). With its sleek, easy to read dial, the timekeeper looked great and probably generated good sales because for this year the company re-introduced the watch as an Alpina Startimer Pilot Sunray (Ref. AL-525GB4S6) model.
