Grand Seiko Sport Collection Spring Drive GMT Limited Edition (Ref. SBGE245G) Japanese watches

In a matter of days, the Japanese conglomerate Seiko will start selling the new Grand Seiko Sport Collection Spring Drive GMT Limited Edition (Ref. SBGE245G) hybrid-powered wristwatch. With the luxury gadget being limited to the Japanese domestic market, the watch will be a bit difficult to come by if you happen to live on the other side of the globe. Yet, the device is so beautiful, so impressive that is seems to be absolutely worth going into all the trouble to get one.


Casio G-Shock Rangeman (ref. GPR-B1000-1 / 1B) with Solar-Assisted GPS Navigation Japanese watches / Quartz watches

To some, the new Casio G-Shock Rangeman (ref. GPR-B1000-1 / 1B) line of adventure watches may look like a glorified steam engine trying to compete with sleek and glossy bullet trains. Still, offering solar-assisted GPS navigation, adequate (although not stunning) battery life, as well as a bunch of other usable (the watch won't bother you with incoming messages alarms, but will let you retrace your route step by step if you somehow get lost in a wilderness) functions, this gadget looks like a reliable backup for your standalone professional GPS tracker.


Seiko Prospex Diver Scuba Giugiaro Design Limited Edition (refs. SBEE001 & SBEE002) Japanese watches / Quartz watches

Already released as the Japanese Domestic Market (ah, that legendary 'JDM' abbreviation that's been rice-rocket freaks' and watch aficionados' darling for so many decades!) models, the new Seiko Prospex Diver Scuba Giugiaro Design Limited Edition (available as refs. SBEE001 & SBEE002) is an almost perfect re-issue of the wristwatch from the 1980s that had a great potential, but for some reason failed to become an icon of industrial design. Well, I can only welcome the Japanese brand's decision to give the collection a second chance, even as only a limited edition model.


Victorinox Swiss Army I.N.O.X. Carbon (refs. 241776 & 241777) Swiss Watches

Coming soon to a store near you, the new Victorinox Swiss Army I.N.O.X. Carbon (refs. 241776 & 241777) collection of military-styled quartz wristwatches offers a decent Swiss made movement neatly packed into a feather-light carbon-fiber body. Despite being somewhat overpriced, the watch still gives you tons of style and comfort in return for that hard-earned cash.


Eterna Super Kontiki Chronograph Automatic (refs. 7770.41.49.1382 & 7770.41.49.1718) Swiss Watches

Recently bought by a Chinese investment holding company, the Swiss-based watchmaker Eterna keeps on churning out great (while a bit overpriced) time measuring devices that also happen to be quite elegant accessories. Although clearly far from being "groundbreaking," their new Eterna Super Kontiki Chronograph (refs. 7770.41.49.1382 & 7770.41.49.1718) collection of self-winding diving watches was presented earlier this year and is now available not only in the brand's numerous stores around the world, but also at some online retailers albeit at very small discounts.


Citizen Promaster Navihawk Satellite Wave GPS (ref. CC9030-51E) Japanese watches / Quartz watches

The Japanese brand has been in the business of (also) making GPS-equipped watches for quite some time now. Their new Citizen Promaster Navihawk Satellite Wave GPS (ref. CC9030-51E) is a fine example of how you can get a lot of experience, a block of high-grade steel, a handful of silicon parts and create an absolutely wonderful object that can be a watch, a gadget, and even a surprisingly low-priced fashion statement as well!


Nixon 51-30 Darth Vader Automatic Limited Edition American watches

The upcoming premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens blockbuster is just a couple of months away and the American watchmaker has already unveiled a number of Star Wars-themed timekeepers that, if I understand correctly, will be sort of 'official' watches of the series. Besides the inevitable "Stormtrooper", and "Imperial Pilot", there is also a full-black Nixon 51-30 Darth Vader: a model that pays homage to the most iconic character of the series. And, yes: as you may have already noticed, all three models are dedicated to agents of the dark side of the Force. Ah, that irresistible attractiveness of Evil!


Breitling Superocean II 36 Diver for Ladies Ladies watch / Swiss Watches

The new Breitling Superocean II 36 Diver sports the usual styling that the series is known for. Basically offering the same men's watch in a slightly smaller size, the timekeeper won't surprise you with new ideas, but will rather deliver the usual blend of sportiness, high build quality and a bullet-proof (albeit, mass produced) mechanism that will keep time as you would expect from a COSC-certified movement. What else there is to want?
