Celebrating the world’s first Formula 1 night race in Singapore, the Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer has created a Singapore Grand Prix edition of its premium-priced Grand Carrera timepiece.
Based on the slim COSC-certified ETA 2836-2 movement, the new Mido Baroncelli Chronometer Jubilee is just another proof that classic is always cool. Also, it tries to tell you that you don’t need to be a millionaire to afford a dressy watch.
The Italian-based fashion and jewelry brand Bvlgari keeps adding new exclusive models to its elegant Diagono collection. Trying to keep their accessories as upscale as practically possible, the brand issues this Diagono Retrograde Moonphase (ref. DGP42BGLDMP) in an almost prohibitively priced massive rose gold case that features their own self-winding movement. Coming as a -relatively- limited-edition model and featuring their traditional exaggerated design, it will possibly sell off fast thanks to its brief, but dramatic cameo on Robert Downey Jr’s wrist at the latest Iron Man blockbuster.
The Swiss watchmaker Chopard has extended its last year’s Happy Sport Mark II collection with new All Black model, which is now available in two versions: one with a fixed bezel set with almost four dozens of beautifully cut diamonds, and the other featuring a sportier design with a rather standard unidirectional rotating bezel with a diving time scale. Both feature matte black PVD finish that makes a perfect background for the moving diamonds on their dials.
With its signature styling and a well-chosen automatic movement that keeps it ticking, new Bvlgari Diagono Calibro 303 Chronograph looks like a nice choice for a person in search for a sportier kind of a reliable timekeeper that doesn’t try to look like your average run-off-the-mill Omega or Breitling.
