Although for a great deal of customers the German brand H2O is quite obscure and, perhaps, even unknown, the company still has a number of die-hard fans. The reason for such intense love is, of course, an almost infinite number of customization options that they offer with every model. This new H2O Orca Dive Black DLC Automatic, for example, is available with four bezel variations, three front crystals, seven colors for dials, four hands finishes, and at least three different straps
Okay, we finally started getting news releases regarding watches that will be revealed during the upcoming SIHH 2014 event next January. Among them, is the new Baume & Mercier Clifton Chronograph (ref. MOA10123, often referred to by various online stores simply as '10123') collection of automatic timekeepers.
For the upcoming holiday season, GP has updated its Cat's Eye line with an admirable Girard-Perregaux Cat's Eye High Jewelry (ref. 91702B53P7B1-53A) watch. Powered by their in-house Caliber GP03300-0072 self-winding movement and sporting the same 38x33 mm white gold body as the rest of the family, the watch is still slightly larger thanks to an absolutely enormous amount of precious stones decorating it from top to bottom.
DuBois et fills, a French watchmaker that currently tries to reinvent itself, has fairly recently offered a new DBF001 of automatic chronographs. Delivering a surprisingly satisfying mixture of sportiness and elegance, the watch may be the first step of the brand towards the real success.
Deliciously vintage, yet absolutely modern, the new Glashutte Original Sixties Panorama Date (ref. 39-47-06-02-04) successfully delivers everything that one could expect from a contemporary timepiece inspired by the roaring 1960s. With this new device, you get a clean, easily readable dial, as well as a meticulously designed and gorgeously executed self-winding caliber packed into a perfectly sculpted case. All in all, you get a timekeeper that perfectly represents a decade that put a man on the Moon and gave us Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and Janis Joplin.
The German watchmaking specialist has recently expanded its "Tactical" collection of extreme divers with a new model. Called Dievas Tactical Maya, the new diving watch offers all the usual stuff, like an oversized, ruggedized body, extra-bold hands and numerals, as well as impressive water resistance rating.
Next Monday, on 11th November, 2013, the German watchmaker will start taking orders for its new Stowa Flieger Black Forest Edition 1 wrist watch. As the name implies quite clearly, there will be more models in this new range, which is named after the Schwarzwald mountain range, known not only for its fascinating landscape, but also for the famous "Deutsche Uhrenstrasse": a 300-kilometers long route that includes numerous clock factories and other objects related to German watch- and clockmaking history.
Based on their earlier Zurich World Timer watch, the new Nomos for Wempe Weltzeit 5th Avenue automatic timepiece features the same design of its dial, but swaps the original "Heimat" ("Home" or "Homeland" in German) inscription for "New York". The reason for the change is simple: limited to just 100 numbered pieces, the watch was designed to be sold exclusively via Wempe New York Boutique located on Fifth Avenue, one of the busiest streets of Manhattan.
