The new Longines DolceVita (Ref. L5.155.5.00.7) delivers just about anything that you can expect from a modern watch designed for modern ladies: it is rationally designed, flawlessly executed and will probably match any jewelry that includes clear diamonds, as well as white and rose gold.
Bell & Ross, a Swiss-based maker of watches for tough guys, has re-introduced its BR03-94 model. Called Bell & Ross BR03-94 Tornado Chronograph, it features the same functionality, but is now dedicated to the legendary Tornado multi-purpose jets that are still in use by Italy's Air Force.
Powered by an inexpensive Ronda 5030 D quartz movement, the new Versace Mystique Sport Chronograph (Ref. VFG01 0013) has little value as a collectible item, but it still looks like a nice fashion accessory for those preferring sportier style in their everyday life.
Being an official partner of the annual 1000 Miglia race, the Swiss watchmaker introduces a new collection of limited edition watches every year. This time, the company introduced a pair of very nice Chopard Mille Miglia Zagato Chronograph GMT limited edition watch with one of them (Ref. 168550-6001) featuring a very nice combination of black DLC body with rose gold bezel.
Presented in a compact, cushion-shaped body, the new Certina DS Podium Shape (ref. C025.510.16.033.00) is a nice and affordable unisex watch that looks surprisingly refined for a timekeeper that is offered at a price well below the $1000 mark.
Despite its flashy look, this new Raymond Weil Freelancer Lady Urban Black (Ref. 2750-BK1-05208) automatic watch belongs to that extremely boring (and also extremely large) class of fashion accessories that can only get attention at times like this: when the constant flow of new releases almost dries out and when there are almost no interesting objects fighting for our attention.
Assembled in the United States, powered by a high-grade Swiss made movement, and bearing a price tag close to $2000 USD, the new Mk. II Fulcrum automatic diver is a little bit too expensive to my taste, but it still looks great. Also, I really dig their decision to make the timekeeper ahem less similar to the original that the previous version paid homage to.
The new Citizen Eco-Drive AP4000 wrist watch offers a nice combo of a high-grade, solar-powered quartz caliber packed inside a well-designed, comfortable-looking body that will probably fit just about any wrist even despite its generous size.
