Breitling for Bentley GT3 (ref. V273655S/BE14/233S/V20DSA.2) Swiss

Based on one of their earlier Supersports models, the new Breitling for Bentley GT3 (ref. V273655S/BE14/233S/V20DSA.2) chronograph delivers the traditional mix of daring exterior styling and a fairly impressive price tag. The only thing that it lacks is an in-house caliber, but for those not really interested about the model's guts and more concerned about looks and brand value its modified ETA movement may even be a better choice.

Longines Heritage Military COSD Automatic (ref. L2.832.4.53/73.x) Swiss

War never changes. Watches, however, do. It is really nice when reputable watchmaking brands introduce all sorts of homages to legendary WWII-time models that were issued during 1940s for armies of all parties involved. For obvious reasons, this new Longines Heritage Military COSD (ref. L2.832.4.53/73.x) can't be called a "reissue". However, it is still a very nice choice for a person who wants to buy a military-styled timekeeper that doesn't look like it came straight from Call of Duty: Black Ops video game. This is a timepiece that was designed with a gentleman in mind.

IWC Aquatimer Deep Three Titanium (Ref. IW355701) Swiss

Unveiled early this year at SIHH 2014, the IWC Aquatimer Deep Three Titanium (Ref. IW355701) is perhaps the first tool watch that actually looks great. Its lightweight titanium case is meticulously crafted and features a much elaborated high-tech finish. With its easy-grip rotating bezel and crisp (although a bit busy thanks to its mechanical depth gauge display) dial, the wristwatch would look very organic in a sci-fi movie like Oblivion or maybe even Prometheus.

Hublot Classic Fusion Bol d’Or Mirabaud Chronograph in Titanium (Ref. 521.NQ.1717.QR.BOM14) Swiss

The new Hublot Classic Fusion Bol d'Or Mirabaud (Ref. 521.NQ.1717.QR.BOM14) is a nice take on the Swiss brand's iconic Classis Fusion collection. While the differences with other models in the range seem to be only cosmetic, the choice of materials and the way they are put together makes a very strong impression. As usual, Hublot will severely limit its total production volume in order to make it a 'real' rarity.

Breitling for Bentley 6.75 Midnight Carbon Limited Edition Swiss

On March 5, 2014, the Swiss manufacturer has introduced its limited edition Breitling for Bentley 6.75 Midnight Carbon. Created in partnership with the German-owned, British-based maker of ultra-luxury cars, the monstrous timepiece features all the usual design elements of the family and, as usual, comes in a fairly small lot of 1000 individually numbered pieces. Like a number of their recent offerings, it is offered in a sexy black (or very dark grey) finish that, unlike models treated with PVD coating process, will not show minor dents and scratches.

Baume & Mercier Clifton Retrograde Date Automatic Swiss

So far, the beautiful Baume & Mercier Clifton Retrograde Date Automatic, a new addition to the growing Clifton collection of affordable dress watches that was presented back in January at SIHH 2014 show, looks like the most advanced member of the family. Although the mechanism that powers it is just a usual ETA 2892-2 ebauche with a complication module sitting atop of it, the watch still looks very elegant and refined and, if you are not obsessed with technical features, could become a very nice companion if you plan to wear it with business suit.

Breitling Super Avenger Military Limited Edition Swiss

Introduced right before the holidays, Breitling Super Avenger Military Limited Edition (ref. M2233010/BC91-100W) brings to your doors just about everything that you can expect from a contemporary "luxury tactical" timekeeper made by one of Swiss most famous watchmaking Juggernauts: it is huge, it is black and it is powered by a COSC-certified chronometer movement.

Perrelet Turbine Automatic Chronograph (Ref. A1074/2) Swiss

First presented back in 2009, the Swiss watchmaker's Turbine line of double-rotor watches includes a number of beautiful three-handers. What the collection lacked till now was a chronograph: obviously, it is not that easy to make a chronograph out of a watch that has most of its dial covered with turbine blades-styled auxiliary oscillating weight. However, with its new Perrelet Turbine Automatic Chronograph (Ref. A1074/2), the company demonstrates that anything is possible if you have some imagination.

Longines Heritage 1968 Square Stainless Steel (Ref. L2.792.4.71.0) Swiss

This new Longines Heritage 1968 Square model doesn't look like a re-issue of a certain model that was released by the Swiss brand back in 1960s. However, it looks more than a curt node to the period when the Western civilization seemed to be reaching its peak giving a pretty good idea of how Longines watches of the time could have looked like if watchmakers of that time have had technologies of the XXI century.
