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.


Breitling Aerospace Evo Night Mission SuperQuartz Chronograph Quartz watches / Swiss Watches

It's hard to believe, but professional-looking Aerospace line is here for whole three decades! Celebrating the anniversary, the Swiss watchmaking specialist has recently introduced a new limited edition Breitling Aerospace Evo Night Mission chronograph wristwatch. With a total production run limited to mere 300 pieces and a new color of the dial that nicely accents its almost black satin-brushed body, the new model will probably be sold out in no time even despite its impressive price.


Chopard 24 Hours of Le Mans 2015 Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Jacky Ickx Edition (Ref. 168535-3003) Swiss Watches

The new Chopard 24 Hours of Le Mans 2015 Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Jacky Ickx Edition (Ref. 168535-3003) (wow, that's a really long name indeed) is, for all practical purposes, simply a new iteration of last year's Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 ref. 168535-3002 model with new color accents on the dial and bezel flange. Now also proudly wearing Jacky Ickx's signature on its engraved case back cover, the watch was originally designed to celebrate long standing partnership between the two high-end brands, but, it so happened that it also praises Porsche's decisive victory at 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans.


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.


Breitling Galactic 44 Automatic Chronometer Swiss Watches

Believe it or not, but, contrary to popular beliefs, not all Breitlings do look the same. This new Breitling Galactic 44 (the ref. A45320B9/BD42-101W reviewed here and other models), for example, features a very unusual (for the Swiss-based brand) combination of an elegantly sculpted body that looks more slender that it actually is, a remarkable set of crown-guards, and a relatively thin bezel that still displays all the relevant information for either an amateur diver or a professional pilot. Perhaps, the only thing that it needs is the usual notches that were apparently dropped here in order for its polished surface to better match that of the case. Well, nothing is perfect.


Chopard Mille Miglia for the Porsche Club of America (PCA) Swiss Watches

Although the new Chopard Mille Miglia for the Porsche Club of America (PCA) limited edition wristwatch will never become a highly sought after collector's item, all sixty six examples of the timekeeper will undoubtedly find their owners, and not just because the brand is so strongly associated with Porsche and all of their legacy. After all, offered in precious yellow gold, as well as in less expensive (but still impressive) stainless steel body, the new accessory looks quite spectacular and clearly gives a standard issue Mille Miglia chronograph a run for its money.


Breitling Chronomat 44 Raven Caliber 01 Swiss Watches

Featuring a sexy combination of deep matte black and bright, almost electric, orange, the new Breitling Chronomat 44 Raven Caliber 01 (ref. MB0111C2/BD07-153S) is so far one of the most attractive members of the family. Add to this the same COSC-certified Caliber 01 automatic movement that the Swiss brand builds in its own manufacturing facility, as well as an extremely legible layout of the dial, and you get yourself a winner. The only thing that spoils the fun a little is, as usual for Breitling, the price.
