The new Ball Trainmaster One Hundred Twenty (Ref. NM2888D-PG-LJ-GYGO) is not just a dressy accessory. It has a piece of history in its name.
The new limited-edition Ebel Classic 100 (ref. 9120R41/6430136) combines refined styling with a (relatively) affordable price. Featuring a combination of “historic” logo on the silvered, easy to read dial and mildly oversized stainless steel case, the timekeeper tries to capitalize on the general public’s growing interest in “classic” timekeepers powered by modern movements.
The Swiss-based maker of elite watches has recently announced a more affordable Adamavi line of dressy timekeepers that are powered by inexpensive automatic and even quartz calibers but presented in precious rose gold cases. Among them, is the new Carl F. Bucherer Adamavi (Ref. 00.10307.03.16.01).
As you may have already guessed, this Ball Trainmaster Celsius (ref. NT1050D-LJ-SLC) is the same good old Trainmaster TMT in a new, dressier skin.
The Swiss brand, which is mostly known for their flashy, yet affordable mechanical and quartz timepieces, has recently started selling the new self-winding Edox Cape Horn 5 Minute Repeater Skeleton (ref. 87003 3 AID).
While I do not like Chronoswiss’ vintage-styled models, there is one collection in Chronoswiss’ product range that makes my heart beat faster. It is the relatively new Pacific Collection (Ref. CH 2883 BR) that offers a sporty and energetic, yet discreet and elegant design in a compact, well-executed body.
At Baselworld 2011, among a number of other high-tech and classy timepieces, Perrelet has also presented its new collection of divers: a three-hander, a chronograph, and a GMT. Although they position the chrono as a flagship of the series, the new Seacraft GMT (Refs. A1055/3 and A1055/A) looks to be the most interesting (or, at least, the most useful) among them.
In March 2011, during the Baselworld 2011 trade show, Bell & Ross has presented its new BR 01-92 Ceramic automatic pilot’s watch.
With the new Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver Black Sea (Ref. 263-92-3C), the Swiss watchmaker once again updates its maritime-inspired collection. Looking deliciously un-Rolex with its vulcanized rubber case and eerie black-and-red color scheme, the Black Sea may not be as versatile as a Submariner, but it definitely is as original as money could buy.
For Baselworld 2011, Breitling and Bentley have again joined forces to present you yet another co-branded Barnato Racing automatic chronograph.
