Quartz / Swiss

Not offering anything new and exciting in the realm of the industrial design, this classic-styled Movado Circa (Ref. 0606570) still makes a nice choice for a person who normally prefers a nice B-Uhr or a 500M-rated diver with a pair of jeans and a sweater, but needs something to accompany a rented tuxedo for the BFF's impulsive wedding without breaking the bank.

Maurice Lacroix Les Classiques Phases de Lune Automatic Swiss

For the year 2012, the Swiss watchmaker has seriously facelifted its Maurice Lacroix Les Classiques Phases de Lune collection. Compared to the currently available 2010 Classique Phases de Lune (ref. LC6068-YS101-13E) version that was revealed at the SIHH 2010 trade show, the new watch undoubtedly looks less dramatic (and, frankly, more generic with its Longines Master Collection-like exterior,) but is at the same time more in line with their current model range.

Longines Heritage 1942 180th Anniversary Chronograph (Ref. L2.768.4.13/53) Swiss

Longines keep churning out new members of their recent 180th Anniversary collection. Sporting the same basic design, which is inspired by classic pre-WWII watches, the new Longines Heritage 1942 180th Anniversary Chronograph (Ref. L2.768.4.13/53) doesn't kick bottom parts either in terms of exterior design nor technical features. Yet, it may still be a nice choice for a man looking for a moderately classy, yet relatively affordable self-winding chronograph from a reputable Swiss-based watchmaking brand.

Omega Speedmaster Racing Chronograph Automatic Swiss

Although the new Omega Speedmaster Racing (ref. 326. chronograph takes the iconic collection back to the classic tri-compax layout (as you probably know, unlike more modern versions, the original 1957 Speedmaster that was powered by the legendary Omega caliber 321 hand-wound mechanism featured only the usual three hands for displaying time, as well as three chronograph sub-dials with no calendar), the redesigned timepiece still offers you a highly legible dial and all the signature elements that you can expect from the watch that accompanied the first man on the Moon, including the famous tachymeter scale, which is engraved right on the black fixed bezel and painted glaring yellow.

2012 Glashutte Original PanoMaticLunar in Rose Gold and Steel German

During the Baselworld 2012, the German watchmaker has presented its new take on their bestselling Glashutte Original PanoMaticLunar. Coming in a little bit larger case than the outgoing model, the self-winding timepiece is available both in an expensive rose (with a reddish tint to it) gold and in a more affordable stainless steel and can be ordered on a wide choice of straps, including a steel bracelet that adds to the grad total almost a thousand more Euros. Now, tell me about price targeting.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master Blue Dial in Rolesium (Ref. 16622) Swiss

Rolex has recently updated its range of "professional" Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master collection with a new Ref. 16622 model. Executed in their proprietary "rolesium" alloy of 950 platinum and stainless steel, the gadget features a blue dial and looks, well, extremely cool. Besides offering more contrast display, the 16622 is also more elegant than the previous iterations, including even those with platinum dials.

Oris Chet Baker Limited Edition Automatic (Ref. 733 7591 4084) Swiss

Back in 2009, the Swiss watchmakers has started selling their elegant Rectangular Bob Dylan limited edition (ref. 01 733 7618 4084-Set) automatic wristwatch. In 2012, the company offered us yet another limited edition model that paid homage to a less fortunate (but still one of the best) musician of the 20th century. The new self-winding Oris Chet Baker Limited Edition (Ref. 733 7591 4084) is named after the famous American jazz trumpeter and singer who was born in 1929, became a star in the 1950s, but later succumbed to heavy drugs and died in 1988 at the age of 58.

Patek Philippe Split-Seconds Chronograph and Perpetual Calendar (Ref. 5204) Swiss

Besides the vintage-styled 2012 Perpetual Calendar (Ref. 5940J-001), as well as a number of other interesting timekeepers, the legendary Swiss-based brand has also grabbed an opportunity to present a decisively modern hand-wound Patek Philippe Split-Seconds Chronograph and Perpetual Calendar (Ref. 5204) during the last Baselworld 2012 trade show. Although not using a single block of carbon or a piece of ceramic, the new chronograph makes Star Trek gadgets look hopelessly outdated.

Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph 180th Anniversary Limited Edition Automatic Swiss

It looks like the guy who designed this automatic Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph 180th Anniversary Edition (ref. L2.774.8.23.3) was so impressed with the original 1913 Longines model (it was the world's first chronograph that was from the ground up designed as a wristwatch) that the final product looks more like a faithful reproduction rather than a respectful tribute.
