During the Baselworld 2009 show, TAG Heuer has presented its new offering for those seeking a sporty, waterproof timekeeper. The Aquaracer 500M Calibre 5 is offered in a mid-sized 43 mm case and allows for impressive water-resistance of 500 meters (1640 ft.) Combine these features with the elegant exterior styling and you get yourself a solid choice not only for recreational diving but also for more formal events.
The new member of the ultra-large Oris Regulateur family is not a child of the marketing department but is indeed a professional diver’s timepiece.
Based on the slim COSC-certified ETA 2836-2 movement, the new Mido Baroncelli Chronometer Jubilee is just another proof that classic is always cool. Also, it tries to tell you that you don’t need to be a millionaire to afford a dressy watch.
The idea of creating a watch with a rotating internal bezel that could be operated by an external unit is not terribly new. However, it is this new Oris BC4 Flight Timer (Ref. 690 7615 41 54 LS) that the Swiss-based brand presented at Baselworld 2008 show that puts the whole concept on its head.
