Raymond Weil Freelancer Lady Urban Black (Ref. 2750-BK1-05208) Ladies watch / Swiss Watches

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.

Mk. II Fulcrum Automatic Diver American watches

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.

Tissot PRS 516 Extreme Chronograph Automatic Swiss Watches

Equipped with a self-winding movement, the new Tissot PRS 516 Extreme Chronograph (refs. T079.427.27.057.00 & T079.427.27.057.01) makes a very strong impression, especially if you compare this watch with their older "sporty" models. Of course, it still lags miles behind what some people consider "real" watches with their elegantly simple designs, but in its price niche (it retails at about €1100), the "Extreme" version of the famous timekeeper absolutely beats the crap out of most of its competitors that feature similar functionality.

Breitling Aerospace Evo SuperQuartz Quartz watches / Swiss Watches

Today, when a last year's smartphone, which is not even considered a flagship anymore, sports more firepower than a top-of-the-line laptop PC from early 2000s, it is extremely difficult to impress someone with a simple electronic watch. There are devices that act your personal running coach and there are wrist computers that could guide you to a nearest landing field if your plane's engine suddenly breaks down. I am not even talking about latest "smart" watches that were designed to communicate with you phones that are now just too large to handle. So, how does the Swiss watchmaking brand plans to surprise us with its new Breitling Aerospace Evo (ref. E7936310/BC27-152E) wrist watch?

IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date Boutique Edition (Refs. IW516102 / IW516101) Swiss Watches

IWC has recently revealed a nice addition to its splendid Portofino range of oversized timekeepers. Always conservative in its approach, extremely reluctant when it comes to evolving its design language, the Swiss watchmaker again brings us a watch that features all the elements that we loved so much in their 2011 IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days Caliber 59210 (Ref. 5101) model with only one change: the new IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date Boutique Edition (Refs. IW516102 / IW516101) has the simple calendar display replaced with a lot more appealing Big Date indicator.
