Hamilton Khaki Navy Scuba Automatic (ref. H82305931) Swiss

With this gorgeous Hamilton Khaki Navy Scuba Automatic (ref. H82305931,) the Swiss-based watchmaker that mostly deals in relatively affordable timekeeping instruments not simply expands its line of diving companions. It finally offers a wristwatch that is not just "different" from the rest of the crowd, but -unlike their last year's Navy Frogman- can actually be worn by a casual person without attracting weird glances from persons who "just don't get it."


Frederique Constant Peking to Paris Automatic Limited Edition (ref. FC-303WBRP5B6) Swiss

The new limited edition Frederique Constant Peking to Paris (ref. FC-303WBRP5B6) may not be revolutionary or groundbreaking in any meaning of the words, but it still looks like a really interesting (albeit a tad overpriced) timekeeper for a person interested in a nice three-hander with a tad of sportiness to it. While the "limited edition" part may be a bit gimmicky (in a sense that you can't seriously expect a watch limited to almost 2900 pieces to become rarity in any foreseeable future,) all the rest about this watch is absolutely legit: it is an expertly designed, solidly built piece that is powered by a robust mechanism.


Longines Heritage Military COSD Automatic (ref. L2.832.4.53/73.x) Swiss

War never changes. Watches, however, do. It is really nice when reputable watchmaking brands introduce all sorts of homages to legendary WWII-time models that were issued during 1940s for armies of all parties involved. For obvious reasons, this new Longines Heritage Military COSD (ref. L2.832.4.53/73.x) can't be called a "reissue". However, it is still a very nice choice for a person who wants to buy a military-styled timekeeper that doesn't look like it came straight from Call of Duty: Black Ops video game. This is a timepiece that was designed with a gentleman in mind.


Chr. Ward C9 Moonphase Automatic British

Once a maker of all sorts of "homages" the British company Christopher Ward puts a lot of effort into becoming a serious brand. This new, dressy Chr. Ward C9 Moonphase is a step in the right direction for the relatively young watchmaker.


TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300M Ceramic Automatic Diver Swiss

The iconic TAG Heuer Aquaracer family finally gets a handful of new members that have their stainless steel bezels replaced with ceramic ones. Available in black and blue, with plain or blacked-out steel bodies, and featuring a nice choice of available straps, they are still relatively affordable if you take into account a nice combination of attractive styling, reliability and a bullet-proof automatic movement to finish the picture.


Fortis Terrestis Hedonist Automatic Swiss

Released just a couple of months ago, the new Fortis Terrestis Hedonist delivers a winning combination of elegant styling, and robust movement offered at a fairly affordable price. This is basically the watch of choice for a person who always thought about adding a Fortis to his collection, but wasn't quite ready to get himself an aviator's watch because of their massive cases, cluttered dials and, often, just way too many colors for them to be worn with business attire. Now, you finally have no excuses to backpedal on this purchase, have you?


Oris Divers Sixty-Five Automatic Swiss

First revealed earlier this year at Baselworld 2015 trade show, the new Oris Divers Sixty-Five (ref. 01 733 7747 4055-07 4 17 18) automatic diver pays homage a classic model from 1965. Although it is absolutely not a true reissue (even the choice of movement makes it a different model), the watch makes a strong impression and will be a wonderful choice for a person who wants to buy something "vintage", but with brand new guts to power it.


Tudor North Flag with MT5621 Manufacture Caliber Swiss

If the Swiss-based watchmaking brand really wants to get rid of its image of a 'poor man's Rolex', this new Tudor North Flag that seems to be designed as a new flagship model of the company seems to be a step in the right direction. At least, the combination of an in-house mechanism, a cleverly designed case, an elegantly simple dial, and the famous Tudor Rose right below the Arabic numeral "12" make a very strong impression. Whatever the next model be, the brand clearly doesn't plan to dwell on its past forever.


Oris Thelonious Monk Limited Edition Automatic (Ref. 733 7712 4085) Swiss

Known for its love for music (among others, their limited editions include homages to such legends as Frank Sinatra, John Coltrane, and Dexter Gordon) the Swiss watchmaker has recently introduced its limited edition Oris Thelonious Monk (ref. 733 7712 4085). Although in certain respects this new model may look very unfamiliar to a person who usually associates the brand with their gorgeous chronographs and bulky divers, it is in fact deeply rooted into the manufacture's philosophy of industrial design. As the legendary sculptor of the past, they took a piece of metal and removed everything that didn't belong there leaving only the truly essential elements that make an ordinary watch a true masterpiece.
