Ulysse Nardin Diver 42 Automatic Three-Hander Swiss Watches

Designed for a person who thought that Ulysse Nardin's earlier Diver Chronometer 44 was too pricey, too big, and too cluttered for a diver (or, perhaps, for a person who is happy with the watch and wanted to augment their collection with a simpler version of the watch,) the new Ulysse Nardin Diver 42 automatic three-hander offers a beautiful, clean exterior, superior build quality, and a mechanism that, alas, is a bit too simple for the price that the Swiss watchmaker asks for this thing.


Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Worldtimer (ref. C01-43AWT2-S00W0-CC) British watches

The new Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Worldtimer (the model with reference number C01-43AWT2-S00W0-CC with a "Camel" leather strap is reviewed here, but there are two more versions available with "Tan" and "Blue" leather bands,) is the young watchmaking brand's latest attempt to conquer the niche of dressy UTC watches. This time, the watch offers a better calculated combination of good qulity, great exterior, and a nice automatic movement that is equipped with a complication that is manufactured exclusively for Chr. Ward by its long-standing Swiss-based partner.


Steinhart Nav.B-Chrono 47 Baumuster B Grey Edition (ref. 106-0877) Swiss Watches

Earlier this year, the German watchmaker Steinhart has issued their new take on the concept of a "vintage-modern pilot's watch". Successfully blending vintage exterior with a classic caliber and modern CNC machinery, the new Steinhart Nav.B-Chrono 47 Baumuster B Grey Edition (ref. 106-0877) offers, perhaps, the best "value for money" ratio for those interested in buying a relatively affordable brand new pilot's timekeeper.


Breitling Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Limited Edition in Collaboration with MR PORTER Swiss Watches

Created in collaboration with MR PORTER, one of their major partners that sells all things luxury, the new Breitling Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 is limited to just 1000 pieces, packs a great in-house chronograph caliber, and, as real estate agents like to say, is priced to sell in a market over-saturated with equally elegant pilot's watches produced by well-established brands like Omega and IWC.


Historic Re-Issue: DOXA Sub 300 “Black Lung” Limited Edition Swiss Watches

This year, Doxa has released a number of "anniversary" timekeepers that celebrate the brand's first semicentennial in the business of making professional diving watches. While the gorgeous blackfaced Sharkhunter and the silverfaced Searambler attracted their fair share of attention from collectors and, um, more normal enthusiasts alike, it was the DOXA Sub 300 "Black Lung" Limited Edition automatic diving wristwatch that broke the brand's own sales record with the whole bunch of watches being pre-ordered during the first 24 hours after the registration officially commenced.


Hamilton Khaki Navy Scuba Automatic (ref. H82305931) Swiss Watches

With this gorgeous Hamilton Khaki Navy Scuba Automatic (ref. H82305931,) the Swiss-based watchmaker that mostly deals in relatively affordable timekeeping instruments not simply expands its line of diving companions. It finally offers a wristwatch that is not just "different" from the rest of the crowd, but -unlike their last year's Navy Frogman- can actually be worn by a casual person without attracting weird glances from persons who "just don't get it."


Montblanc TimeWalker Automatic Chronograph UTC Ceramic (ref. 116101) Swiss Watches

Unveiled earlier this year at Baselworld 2017, the new Montblanc TimeWalker Automatic Chronograph UTC Ceramic (ref. 116101) wristwatch like a nice (if a bit overpriced to my taste) addition to the Swiss-based maker's of luxury "writing instruments" that also happens to sell watches line of sporty chronographs. While some of the main selling points of this new watch -like, say, the choice of movement, as well as the combination of materials- look more "acceptable" to yours truly rather than even mildly "exciting," we at WorldWatchReview.com would still recommend getting one of these oversized pieces of, um, time-measuring opulence if the price is not a problem.


Hamilton Broadway Day Date Automatic (refs. H43515735 & H43515135) Swiss Watches

The new Hamilton Broadway Day Date Automatic (refs. H43515735 & H43515135) wristwatch, the Swiss brand's recent attempt at grabbing their own share of a growing "affordable dress watch" market, offers a nice blend of interesting exterior, good build quality and one of the best "long-play" mass-produced automatic movements that you can get in the sub-$1k price range. Unexpectedly elegant and amazingly refined, right now this may be one of the best choices for the money.
