Longines Heritage 1969 Automatic (ref. L2.310.4.72.0) Swiss Watches

The new Longines Heritage 1969 (ref. L2.310.4.72.0) automatic wristwatch is the Swiss brand's yet another bold attempt at reintroducing one their many classic models for the modern audience. Relatively inexpensive (although definitely far from affordable if 'affordability' for you is something in the range where Certina and Tissot usually operate) and powered by a fine-tuned version of one of the most robust self-winding calibers ever produced by ETA, the watch may become an instant hit among those in need of a dressy timekeeper with solid exterior and a bearable price tag.

Seiko Recraft Automatic (Ref. SNKM97) Japanese watches

The Japanese watchmaker has fairly recently presented a line of affordable dress watches. Coming in different color variations and featuring both stainless steel and gold-toned bodies, the new Seiko Recraft collection comes in an unexpectedly finely crafted (albeit, a bit too oversized) case and is powered by an in-house Caliber 7S26 self-winding movement: the same inexpensive, but bullet-proof job that also animated their well-known Seiko SKX781 Orange Monster diving watch.

Longines Heritage 1935 Automatic Pilot’s Watch (Ref. L2.794.4.53.0) Swiss Watches

With its lovingly reproduced look and feel of the original Longines CAF pilot's watch that the Swiss brand has first introduced almost 80 years ago (it was actually an evolution of one of their even older models from the 1920s), the new Longines Heritage 1935 (Ref. L2.794.4.53.0) gives you a perfect chance to own a timekeeper that perfectly blends the unique design language of the pre-war era with modern technology.

Longines Heritage 1973 Chronograph Swiss Watches

The new Longines Heritage 1973 Chronograph (refs. L2.791.4.52.0 & L2.791.4.72.0) automatic watch that was presented by Longines earlier this year, is based on their classic 1973 chronograph model. Although you can't seriously call this new timepiece a reissue, the watch looks close to the original making it a serious competitor to vintage-styled chronographs that were introduced recently by Tudor and Tag Heuer.

Shinola Wright Brothers Limited Edition (Ref. S0100052) American watches / Quartz watches

Can you imagine a shoe polish company turning into a watchmaker that sells its "Built in Detroit" quartz-powered watches for $500-$1000? Well, Shinola, previously a maker of "America's Largest-Selling Shoe Polish", is just that company. After their brand was acquired by an investment group, the famous trade mark suddenly appeared not only on watches, but also on bikes, all sort of premium-priced leather goods and even soft drinks. With this Shinola Wright Brothers limited edition watch (ref. S0100052), the Detroit-based brand starts a whole series of timekeepers paying homage to famous Americans who gave humanity the wings to fly.

Cimier Time Square Chronograph Automatic Swiss Watches

While not terribly original, the new Cimier Time Square Chronograph (refs. 5106-SS011 in steel and 5106-BP021 in black PVD) automatic watch delivers a nice combination of sportiness and elegance that makes it quite versatile if you don't plan to wear it to a pool party or on a hiking trip.

Alpina Sailing Yachttimer Countdown Limited Edition Swiss Watches

Set to be officially presented in later this month during the Baselworld 2013 trade show, this new Alpina Sailing Yachttimer Countdown automatic wrist watch builds on the lessons learned after the introduction of their earlier Extreme 40 Sailing Regatta Timer that was first revealed last year. Although powered by the same self-winding movement and sporting the same body, the new version of the watch offers a completely different (and quite attractive, too) dial layout.
