Seiko Recraft Automatic (Ref. SNKM97) Japanese watches

The Japanese watchmaker has fairly recently presented a line of affordable dress watches. Coming in different color variations and featuring both stainless steel and gold-toned bodies, the new Seiko Recraft collection comes in an unexpectedly finely crafted (albeit, a bit too oversized) case and is powered by an in-house Caliber 7S26 self-winding movement: the same inexpensive, but bullet-proof job that also animated their well-known Seiko SKX781 Orange Monster diving watch.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Platinum Orange Ceramic Swiss Watches

This new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Platinum Orange Ceramic (ref. automatic watch looks like an extremely expensive crossover between their flashy Seamaster Planet Ocean automatic chronograph that the brand has introduced almost three years ago and a tad fresher Co-Axial GMT model. From the latter it gets basic design and movement, and the former supplied this beautiful artifact with its ostentatious orange-and-polished-metal color scheme. The expensive part is delivered courtesy of mirror-polished and sand-blasted platinum, lots of it.

Swiss Watches

The Italian watchmaker has upgraded its "Vintage" family of military-styled timekeepers with a new Anonimo Militare Vintage automatic wrist watch that seems to be inspired by historic timepieces that were worn by the Italian troops during the times of World War II.

Blancpain L-evolution Tourbillon Large Date Swiss Watches

The new Blancpain L-evolution Tourbillon Large Date (refs. 8822-15B30-53B and 8822-36B30-53B) automatic wristwatch seems to be the world's first timekeeper to have its power reserve indicator implanted right into the oscillating weight of its winding rotor. This is perhaps one of the most attractive complications that I have seen during the last decade.

British watches

With its new Dent Denison limited edition made-to-order watch the young British watchmaking brand tries to get its toe into the market of premium, ultra-exclusive mechanical timepieces, that is currently dominated by the Swiss-based maisons.

Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 2 Swiss Watches

This new Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 2 may be not as expensive as a Bugatti Veyron, but it surely costs more than a Rolls-Royce. Designed for the sort of customers who usually don't look too closely at price tags when it comes to particularly exclusive toys, this ultra-limited edition hand-wound timekeeper's purpose is not to tell time (although the team of engineers behind this gorgeous contraption went to great lengths in order to assure the gadget's superior ability to keep good time) or to put on display a tiny speck of enormous wealth of its owner. It is a sort of a showcase of the young brand's technical prowess when it comes to ultra-complicated mechanisms and their ability to make them by the dozens.

Breitling Chronomat 01 Diamondworks Swiss Watches

The Swiss watchmaker has issued a diamond-set version of its cash-cow: the Chronomat automatic chronograph. Called Breitling Chronomat 01 Diamondworks, it is available in white gold and rose gold cases and bears enough diamonds either to rebuild the Republic of Haiti or to finance a manned mission to Mars. Thankfully, the watch is delivered in two versions with a more modest one having the use of diamonds limited only to its signature diving bezel.
