Owned by Ickler GmbH, a German company that makes its own high-quality watch cases, the local brand has release its new Archimede Klassik 42 Bicolor automatic wristwatch. As usual for the watchmaker, the timekeeper is offered in six variations with all sorts of available customizations that you can possibly imagine. Although not as refined as similarly (base price plus essential options included) priced models from competitors, the timekeeper is certainly worth a look, especially if you are into that sort of rugged beauty that Archimede is known for.
Mean and cool, huge but comfortable, the new Breitling Avenger Blackbird limited edition "tactical" three-hander offers you a COSC-certified version of a mass-produced automatic movement packed into a feather-light titanium body with its machine-brushed surface blacked with a special carbonization technique. What more can one desire from such a manly time measuring device?
The new Ball Watch Engineer II Pioneer Chronometer delivers all the usual treats from the watchmaker that was founded in America, but later moved to Switzerland. Its compact, deliberately simple body would look good on almost any wrist, its dial is high-contrast and easily readable even to older persons with poor sight. However, if your idea of a dress watch doesn't include more than two dozen micro-tubes filled with mildly radioactive, self-glowing gas, you may find this timekeeper slightly difficult to adapt to.
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
The German watchmaking specialist has recently expanded its "Tactical" collection of extreme divers with a new model. Called Dievas Tactical Maya, the new diving watch offers all the usual stuff, like an oversized, ruggedized body, extra-bold hands and numerals, as well as impressive water resistance rating.
The German brand Dievas, the one that uses its own cases with ETA movements ticking inside them, has refreshed its Dievas Vortex Professional 500M diving watch that was released two years ago with a new, even stealthier model. With all specs of the watch being virtually the same, the only thing that differs the new Dievas Vortex Tactical timekeeper from the 2011 diver is the new color of its dial and an even more scratch-resistant titanium body.
Considered by many watch enthusiasts as an entry-level "Swiss Made" watch of choice, the famous Trident C60 has recently got significantly smaller. As the bulky 42 millimeters of the original model were often too massive for buyers of the skinny type, this Chr. Ward C61 Trident-Pro will probably fit any medium- and small-sized wrist. And if you think that orange is just too bright for you (and it is, just trust me), there are two more color combinations to choose from.
Sinn, a German watchmaking brand, which is mostly known for its professional-grade diving watches, starts taking pre-orders for its new Sinn U200 B (EZM 8) Special Edition timepiece for hard core diving enthusiasts. Available for orders from October and till 31 December 2013, the new diver features Sinn's signature styling and comes in a nice presentation box with a spare NATO-style textile strap and a set of instruments to make installing the band easier.
