Certina DS1 “Double Security” Automatic Swiss

Even though Certina DS1 "Double Security" (ref. C006.407.16.088.00) offers a pretty generic design, it is a nice entry-level model for those high-school graduates still dreaming about their first dress watch with the legendary "Swiss Made" inscription on the dial, which is said to be adding at least +10 to mating abilities and +25 to personal charisma.

Archimede Pilot 39H Historic Automatic German

Around three years ago, the German watchmaking brand has revealed its Pilot H limited edition model. The Pilot H was sold as a sort of "homage" to their successful Pilot Original that was powered by a vintage (so-called "New Old Stock") Junghans 687 hand-wound movement. This year, the German brand decided to bet on yet another iteration of the same timekeeper that is now introduced in a smaller case. Meet the "historic" Archimede Pilot 39H!

Christopher Ward C9 Harrison Jumping Hour Swiss

The somewhat out-of-the-way British watchmaking brand has recently revealed its automatic Christopher Ward C9 Harrison Jumping Hour. Featuring a unique (well, maybe not that unique, but at least original and made exclusive for them) jumping hour complication module, it is going to be the most expensive model in their whole range.


The Marcello C Tridente Ice Age (Ref. 2005.6) not only offers you an impressive water resistance rating of 100 ATM (or, using more common value, 1000 meters!) but also sports a high-quality Swiss-made self-winding movement, which is packed inside a chunky, dependable-looking stainless steel body. In other words, it is basically a true professional diving tool that can also be worn as a casual accessory if you don't mind its mildly intimidating size of more than 44 millimeters.

A.B.Art Serie MA Swiss

The young Swiss-based brand has recently added the new A.B.Art Serie MA (refs. MA 101 & MA 102) collection to its growing family of simple, Bauhaus-styled timekeepers.

Dievas Focal 500M Automatic Diver German

Dievas maybe not particularly famous on the west side of the Pond, but it doesn't keep the brand from expanding its model range of professional (or I'd rather call them "semi-pro entry-luxury") diving watches. The Dievas Focal automatic diver, for example, not only offers an impressive WR rating of 500 meters (50 ATM) and comes powered by a high-grade Swiss made self-winding caliber, but also features an interesting exterior that will appeal to those in love with the legendary Bauhaus movement.

Deep Blue Marine Diver 500 American

The U.S.-based watchmaker keeps pleasing us with new models of their inexpensive, yet lovingly designed and finely crafted timepieces. The recently introduced Deep Blue Marine Diver 500, for example, is rated for depths of 500 meters and is elegant enough to be worn on a daily basis, not just with a dry suit.

Deep Blue Alpha Marine 500 American

Summer is almost over here in the northern hemisphere, but if your home is closer to the equator or you are simply lucky enough to live in the southern half of the globe, then the new Deep Blue Alpha Marine 500 automatic diving watch still may be of some interest to you. This may be especially true for those who plan to visit one of those exotic countries with warm seas and lots of colorful fish in it: the bright colors of Alpha Marine 500 dials will blend nicely in that environment.

Rado D-Star Ceramic Automatic Swiss

The 2011 Rado D-Star Ceramic (ref. R15609162) follows in steps of its more advanced sister: the limited-edition D-Star Basel Special 2011 model that was presented last March during the annual Baselworld 2011 exhibition. If you followed the above link, you may have noticed that both models are presented in the same oval-shaped (or, rather, elongated cushion-shaped) black ceramic case and basically feature the same styling with similarly shaped hands and applied hour markers.

Tissot T-Tempo Automatic Swiss

The automatic Tissot T-Tempo (ref. T060.407.11.051.00) is a nice choice for those making their first step into the fascinating world of luxury mechanical timekeepers. While not looking terribly 'fancy', not offering you any 'impressive' complications and not designed for those wishing to make 'a statement', the T-Tempo is a nice crossover between casual and dress timekeepers that also happens to be powered by a mechanism capable of keeping good time, while being robust enough to be abused by a person who is yet to realize that a mechanical watch is like a tiny car: however inexpensive it is, it still needs to be properly serviced at certain intervals.
