Longines Conquest Heritage 1954-2014 Limited Edition Swiss

Based on one of their models from 1950s, the 2014 limited edition Longines Conquest Heritage 1954-2014 comes in a compact 35-millimeter case which is available not only in an expensive rose or yellow gold but also in a lot more affordable stainless steel. Combine it with a nice business dress and you have a clear winner.

Breitling Avenger Blackbird Limited Edition Swiss

Mean and cool, huge but comfortable, the 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?

Ball Watch Engineer II Pioneer Chronometer Swiss

The 2014 Ball Engineer II Pioneer Chronometer (ref. NM2026C-L4CAJ-BK) delivers all the usual treats from the watchmaker that was founded in America, but later moved to Switzerland. The 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 glass micro-tubes filled with a mildly radioactive, self-glowing gas, you may find this timekeeper slightly difficult to adapt to.

Glycine F104 Pilot Automatic (Ref. 3932.146AT.LB7R) Swiss

Commemorating the Swiss brand's 100th Anniversary, the automatic Glycine F104 Pilot (Ref. 3932.146AT.LB7R) delivers that great mix of a clean, easy to read dial with an easy to recognize pre-WWII styling, and deliberately oversized body: something that you rarely see when it comes to pilot's watches designed during the last decade or two. Although, like a number of recently introduced timekeepers that try to strike your imagination with monsters that look ridiculous on almost any wrist of a man of a normal stature, this one will not look that great if you decide to wear it with formal suit, it is still an interesting collectible item that one can even wear from time to time. Perhaps, combine it with an equally expensive winter bomber jacket that would be able to somehow hid the gadget's overall bulkiness?

Homage to Rolex 6200? Steinhart Ocean One Vintage Automatic German

For a business entity, which is essentially a one-man show, Steinhart is surprisingly prolific. Although most of their watches are so-called "homages" and "tributes", there is a lot of them. Starting from "divers" to "pilots" and going all the way to sporty chronographs, the brand offers you plenty to choose from. This self-winding Ocean One Vintage, for example, is designed for the kind of people that are longing for a historic Rolex (or, perhaps, even a re-issue of a historic Tudor,) but either can't afford one or plain don't want to bother sifting through the thousands of "pre-loved" models with a questionable history.

H2O Orca Dive Black DLC Automatic German

Although for many customers the German brand H2O is 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. Sounds impressive, doesn't it?

Dievas Tactical Maya Diver 1888 M German

The German watchmaking specialist has recently expanded its "Tactical" collection of extreme divers with a new model. Dievas Tactical Maya offers all the usual stuff, like an oversized, ruggedized body, extra-bold hands and numerals, as well as impressive water resistance rating.

Dievas Vortex Tactical Diver in DLC Titanium German

The German brand Dievas, the one that uses its own cases with ETA movements ticking inside them, has refreshed its Dievas Vortex Professional 500M diver 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 from the 2011 model is the new color of its dial and an even more scratch-resistant titanium body.

Chr. Ward C61 Trident-Pro Automatic Diver British

Considered by many enthusiasts as an entry-level "Swiss Made" watch of choice, the Trident C60 has recently got significantly smaller. Since the bulky 42 millimeters of the original model were often too massive for buyers of the skinnier type, this 38-millimeter Chr. Ward C61 Trident-Pro will 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 U200 B (EZM 8) Special Edition Diver German

Sinn, a brand that is mostly known for its professional-grade diving tools, starts taking pre-orders for its new Sinn U200 B (EZM 8) Special Edition for hardcore 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.
