Casio G-Shock Rangeman (ref. GPR-B1000-1 / 1B) with Solar-Assisted GPS Navigation Japanese watches / Quartz watches

To some, the new Casio G-Shock Rangeman (ref. GPR-B1000-1 / 1B) line of adventure watches may look like a glorified steam engine trying to compete with sleek and glossy bullet trains. Still, offering solar-assisted GPS navigation, adequate (although not stunning) battery life, as well as a bunch of other usable (the watch won't bother you with incoming messages alarms, but will let you retrace your route step by step if you somehow get lost in a wilderness) functions, this gadget looks like a reliable backup for your standalone professional GPS tracker.


Casio PRO TREK PRG-600 “Outdoor” World-Timer with Tough Solar Movement (ref. PRG-600-1ER) Japanese watches / Quartz watches

With its new Casio PRO TREK PRG-600 "outdoor" world-timer, the Japanese watchmaking giant delivers a stylish, surprisingly tastefully designed wristwatch. Primarilly targeting people who lead an active lifestyle and do need a time measuring device that would do a good job during a hiking expedition, it will also look great with a pair of blue jeans and a t-shirt in a safe coworking environment. Although inevitably having limitations of its own, the watch seems to give you a great combination of good build quality, reasonable price and an almost overwhelming list of functions that would make an owner of a Swiss made analog/digital timekeeper literally drool. The only thing that spoils the fun is the "cased in Thailand" insription on its machine-brushed back.


Citizen Promaster Navihawk Satellite Wave GPS (ref. CC9030-51E) Japanese watches / Quartz watches

The Japanese brand has been in the business of (also) making GPS-equipped watches for quite some time now. Their new Citizen Promaster Navihawk Satellite Wave GPS (ref. CC9030-51E) is a fine example of how you can get a lot of experience, a block of high-grade steel, a handful of silicon parts and create an absolutely wonderful object that can be a watch, a gadget, and even a surprisingly low-priced fashion statement as well!


Breitling Chronospace Military SuperQuartz Quartz watches / Swiss Watches

The new Breitling Chronospace Military (ref. M7836622.BD39.100W.M20BASA.1) chronograph wrist watch delivers the usual combination of a high-grade SuperQuartz mechanism, a highly legible dial with the signature analog-digital display and packs it all in a blacked-out steel body. What this timekeeper clearly lacks is innovation. On the other hand, for innovation Breitling has its super-high-tech Breitling Emergency II model, while the rest of the pack is being carefully guarded from anything new.


Vulcain Nautical DLC (Ref. 100152.024LDLC) Swiss Watches

Vulcain, the company that makes watches for American presidents, has re-released its classic Nautical model. First released as a faithful recreation of the 1960s diver and then re-issued around two years ago in almost the same shape (but with a different movement), this new Vulcain Nautical DLC (Ref. 100152.024LDLC) version of the watch gets more modern look with its mid-sized stainless steel body treated with scratch-resistant DLC coating. Still, it loses something in the process.


Casio G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400 Japanese watches

Although Casio's positioning of the new G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400 watch as a "survival" tool looks a little bit too far-fetched, the gadget still deserves a certain degree of attention. Sporting a long list of useful functions that millions of fans of the series are already quite familiar with, the Rangeman also sports their famous Triple Sensor system that makes it especially useful for hikers, forest tourists and, perhaps, even soldiers and other professionals who need a reliable and durable tactical watch.


Vulcain 50s Presidents’ Alarm Watch Edition France (Ref. 160151.323L) Swiss Watches

Limited to just 50 pieces, each bearing an individually engraved number on their transparent back, the new Vulcain 50s Presidents' Alarm Watch Edition France (ref. 160151.323L) will be offered exclusively in France. Yes, a market that proved to be the most loyal to the brand since it was resurrected back in 2001 in its current form, gets a special edition version of one of the most successful "affordable" complication watches currently offered by the Swiss watchmaker. Powered by Vulcain's in-house "Cricket" hand-wound movement, the limited edition wrist watch sports the famous mechanical alarm complication module.
