TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300M Ceramic Automatic Diver Swiss Watches

The iconic TAG Heuer Aquaracer family of watches finally get a handful of new members that have their stainless steel bezels replaced with ceramic ones. Available in black and blue, with plain or blacked-out steel bodies, and featuring a nice choice of available straps, they are still relatively affordable if you take into account a nice combination of attractive styling, reliability and a bullet-proof automatic movement to finish the picture.


Oris Divers Sixty-Five Automatic Swiss Watches

First revealed earlier this year at Baselworld 2015 trade show, the new Oris Divers Sixty-Five automatic diving watch pays homage a classic model from 1965, although it is absolutely not a reissue (even the choice of movement makes it a different model), the watch makes a very nice impression and will probably be a wonderful choice for a person who wants to buy something "vintage", but with brand new guts to power it.


Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Vuelo Automatic Swiss Watches

As defiantly eclectic as it is, the new Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Vuelo still makes quite a strong impression with its deliberately oversized stainless steel body and a dial that could make your eyes bleed if only it wasn't matched so convincingly well to the energetic shape of the case. Clearly not designed according to the book that most Swiss-based watchmakers seem to live by, this new wristwatch may be a timekeeper of choice for a person who looks for something entirely different.


Certina Chronographe DS-8 Phase de Lune Quartz Quartz watches / Swiss Watches

Officially presented during Baselworld 2015 last March, the new Certina Chronographe DS-8 Phase de Lune is a perfect example of a dressy complication watch that somehow manages to combine into a single package an almost stunning exterior, a very nice quartz chronograph movement that, for all things practical blows out of the water almost all advanced electric mechanisms currently available on the market, while spicing all up with a very affordable price. What more do you expect? A free Porsche?


Tudor North Flag with MT5621 Manufacture Caliber Swiss Watches

If the Swiss-based watchmaking brand really wants to get rid of its image of a 'poor man's Rolex', this new Tudor North Flag that seems to be designed as a new flagship model of the company seems to be a step in the right direction. At least, the combination of an in-house mechanism, a cleverly designed case, an elegantly simple dial, and the famous Tudor Rose right below the Arabic numeral "12" make a very strong impression. Whatever the next model be, the brand clearly doesn't plan to dwell on its past forever.


Slim d’Hermes Automatic by Hermes Swiss Watches

The new Slim d'Hermes automatic wristwatch seems to target those iconic Piaget ultra-thin wrist watches that the competing Swiss-based brand seems to be so proud of. Of course, thinness is not the timekeeper's main selling point. The device also offers a very well-balanced, solid design that looks like a serious improvement on their previous attempts, as well as a new self-winding mechanism with micro-rotor design that could technically even be called 'in-house'.


Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time (Ref. 5524) Swiss Watches

The new Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time (ref. 5524) automatic wrist watch was first unveiled around two weeks ago during Baselworld 2015 show. Combining in the same package a 'historic' dial layout of a 1930s pilot's watch with a meticulously sculpted white gold body and an in-house self-winding movement that makes one drown in his own saliva, this is one of the most notable timekeepers presented at the trade fair.


Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture Ladies (ref. FC-703VD3SD4) Ladies watch / Swiss Watches

The new Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture Ladies (ref. FC-703VD3SD4) automatic wrist watch is not only one of the finest timekeepers introduced so far by the brand. It is also one of those (still few) models of the Swiss watchmaker that is powered not by a slightly redecorated version of a run off the mill blank movement made either by ETA or Sellita, but by a new caliber that was developed and built on their own production facilities. That says something, right?
