Equipped with a hand-wound Swiss-made movement, the 2016 Chr. Ward C5 Malvern Slimline Square makes a strong impression. In fact, this new accessory, as deceptively unsophisticated as it is, may become one of the halo models for the British brand all over the civilized world, at least when it comes to people who can appreciate real beauty.

At the SIHH 2010 trade show, Audemars Piguet has presented a bunch of new Royal Oak Offshore Chronographs. Although a normal AP ROO is usually associated with massive, larger than life cases that cover the whole width of your wrist (and then some) and, when done in denser alloys, often weigh so much you can use the darn thing for self-defense, this new line comes in a lot more compact cases that measure just 37 millimeters. Just think about it for a second: the device is actually smaller (not thinner though!) than a normal classic-styled three-hander! More than that, it is positioned as a unisex (i.e. suitable both for males, females, and all the genders in between) model!
