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

Unveiled at the Baselworld 2017, the Montblanc TimeWalker Automatic Chronograph UTC Ceramic (ref. 116101) is a nice (if a bit overpriced to my taste) addition to the Swiss-based makers 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.


Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer Automatic British

In less than two months, the British watchmaking brand will start selling their new Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer. Styled as a pilot's watch and featuring an appealing combination of a robust Swiss made movement with their new distinctive approach to design, the new timekeeper seems to be well worth the serious chunk of cash that the watchmaker plans to charge for it.


Zenith El Primero Stratos Spindrift Racing Special Edition Swiss

Available in two finishes and sporting a fairly impressive size of whole 45 millimeters in diameter, the new Zenith El Primero Stratos Spindrift Racing Special Edition (refs. 75.2060.4061/21.R573 & 86.2060.4061/21.R573) tries to mix into a single convincing package such iconic elements of their design as signature rotating bezel, cloverleaf-style dial cutout that shows the timekeeper's inner workings, as well as an El Primero movement. What's really surprising is that the final product doesn't look too eclectic: while standing a bit dangerously to the 'love it or hate it' category, it is, in fact, quite an organic-looking watch that will certainly find a niche of its own.


JeanRichard Terrascope: Now in Rose Gold Swiss

JeanRichard Terrascope, a relatively new family of "masculine" timekeepers has just been updated with a number of "two-tone" models that successfully combine gold and steel. Carefully mixing textures and colors, the Swiss-based brand effectively one of the most attractive cushion-shaped watches currently available on the market.


Oris TT3 Darryl O’Young Limited Edition Automatic Chronograph (Ref. 774 7611 7784 Set) Swiss

It looks like you really don't have to be a Michael Schumacher (I truly hope that this man of legend gets well soon) to get your own limited edition timepiece. Darryl O'Young, a 33 year old racer from Hong Kong who is still to prove that he is worthy the car that he drives in the World Touring Car Championship, has recently had his name put on the new Oris TT3 Darryl O'Young Limited Edition Automatic Chronograph (Ref. 774 7611 7784 Set). Based on their current TT3 model in a titanium body, it is both sporty and elegant: a rare combination that an average usually chronograph usually fails to achieve.


Zenith Pilot Montre d’Aeronef Type 20 GMT 1903 Limited Edition (Ref. 96.2431.693/ 21.C740) Swiss

Something tells me that most of you must remember the great (in all meanings of the word) Zenith Pilot Montre d'Aeronef Type 20 that the Swiss watchmaker has had revealed about two years ago. Last year, the brand has introduced a new version of the watch, albeit in a smaller (but still defiantly massive) body and featuring a second time zone indicator. For the next year, the company delivered yet another version of the timepiece inspired by aviator watches of the early 20th century. Called Zenith Pilot Montre d'Aeronef Type 20 GMT 1903 Limited Edition, the device bears the same layout and dimensions, but comes with a lot more appealing "vintage" styling.


H2O Orca Dive Black DLC Automatic German

Although for a great deal of customers the German brand H2O is quite obscure and, perhaps, even unknown, the company still has a number of die-hard fans. The reason for such intense love is, of course, an almost infinite number of customization options that they offer with every model. This new H2O Orca Dive Black DLC Automatic, for example, is available with four bezel variations, three front crystals, seven colors for dials, four hands finishes, and at least three different straps


Chopard Mille Miglia Zagato Chronograph GMT Limited Edition (Ref. 168550-6001) Swiss

Being an official partner of the annual 1000 Miglia race, the Swiss watchmaker introduces a new collection of limited edition watches every year. This time, the company introduced a pair of very nice Chopard Mille Miglia Zagato Chronograph GMT limited edition watch with one of them (Ref. 168550-6001) featuring a very nice combination of black DLC body with rose gold bezel.


Vulcain Nautical DLC (Ref. 100152.024LDLC) Swiss

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 gets more modern look with its mid-sized stainless steel body treated with scratch-resistant DLC coating. Still, it loses something in the process.
