With its open-worked dial and carefully designed case, the Graham Silverstone RS Skeleton (refs. 2STAC1.B01A in red, 2STAC2.B01A in green, and 2STAC3.B01A in blue) takes this elegance to a new level of sophistication.
Powered by an inexpensive Ronda 5030 D quartz movement, the new Versace Mystique Sport Chronograph (Ref. VFG01 0013) has little value as a collectible item, but it still looks like a nice fashion accessory for those preferring sportier style in their everyday life.
Okay, here we have yet another cool diver. The 2013 Oris Aquis Small Seconds DLC sports that masculine, easily recognizable design with the signature donut-shaped body, massive hour and minute hands, as well as the luminous hour markers that look kinda like flattened hollow point bullets.
If you liked the functionality of the last year’s Transocean Chronograph Unitime World Time Automatic, but didn’t quite care for its bombastic styling that just screamed conspicuous consumption, the Swiss watchmaker gives you yet another chance to fall in love with this beautiful watch. While sporting the same hardware inside its generously proportioned body, this new Breitling Transocean Unitime Pilot limited edition chronograph now comes in a no-nonsense black-and-grey color scheme that makes it an almost perfect “tool” for a pilot.
Mostly known for its prolific AquaScope family of cushion-shaped divers that offer a nice alternative to impressive, but heavily overpriced Panerai timekeepers, the Swiss-based manufacturer has recently added a nice “aviator” to its model range. Presented back in May during Baselworld 2013 show in titanium (ref. 60650-21G211-FK2A) and black DLC titanium (ref. 60650-21H612-21A), the JeanRichard AeroScope Automatic combines the same rugged, cushion-shaped body with a finely crafted dial of a tri-compax chronograph.
Probably inspired by the high-tech Linde Werdelin SpidoSpeed family of mildly skeletonized automatic divers, the new Certina DS Eagle GMT chronograph (ref. C023.739.27.051.00) is equipped with a lot simpler ETA G10.961 caliber: the same quartz movement that powered their 2011 Certina DS Podium Ole Einar Bjorndalen model, but is encased in a lot sportier body.
Eberhard & Co. has first presented this collection back in late 2011. Featuring a titanium case, the 2012 Chrono 4 Geant Edition Limitee Titane was almost as light as a feather, but I suspect that the choice of the metal was just not right for a huge sporty watch that looks like a tank or a star destroyer but is highly prone to dents and scratches. To correct their mistakes, the guys have created a limited edition Eberhard & Co. Chrono4 Geant Full Injection (Ref. 31062) that doesn’t just look tough. It is tough.
If you keep an eye on fresh products from IWC and are also a fan of the world’s most popular racing series, you probably know that the Swiss watchmaker sponsors the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One team and have also probably noticed the gorgeous, cool as Arctic ice IWC Ingenieur Racer Automatic Chronograph that was announced back in December 2012. Well, the brand decided not to limit its onslaught to just one F1-themed watch. Behold the new IWC Ingenieur Carbon Performance limited edition (Ref. 3224).
Okay, here goes yet another limited edition version of the sporty UN Marine Diver. It is the fourth year in a row that the Swiss watchmaking brand sponsors the annual Monaco Yacht Show. This automatic Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver Monaco (ref. 263-98LE-3C_MON) was issued specifically to celebrate this fact, which is only just considering that the diving companion looks like the best candidate for a nice trip on a newly bought vessel. The new version doesn’t differ too much from other Marine Divers, so I’ll be brief.
The young American brand updates its CalDiver 500 small family of large diving tools with a new edition. The Deep Blue CalDiver USA 500 differs from its siblings not only with a restyled dial but also with a silkscreen USA flag, which is combined with the brand’s logo and is clearly visible through the transparent case back.
