If you have noticed the sporty Chronoliner collection from last year but decided to pass on it for the lack of bling, this limited-edition 2016 Breitling Chronoliner Triple Time-Zone Chronograph will make you want to reconsider. Preserving the same energetic (some may even call it assertive) styling of the original, it comes in a lot dressier rose gold case that, thanks to careful balancing the mix of materials and textures somehow manages not to look too arrogant in all of its polished rose gold and glossy ceramic glory.

Just wanted to give you a brief heads up regarding a new offering from a small American watchmaker Deep Blue Watches. They have just updated their Daynight range with a Deep Blue Daynight T100 GMT Chronograph. Still capable of withstanding the water pressure of up to 50ATM, it can now be used by especially busy combat divers and other special forces operators featuring not one or two, but whole three time zones. Well, sort of.
Being an official partner of the annual 1000 Miglia race, the Swiss watchmaker introduces new limited edition collections on an annual basis. This time, the company introduced a pair of nice Chopard Mille Miglia Zagato Chronograph GMTs with one of them (namely, the Ref. 168550-6001 reviewed here) featuring an impressive combination of black DLC body with a rose gold bezel.
Around a year ago, on an order from U.S. military, the young British watchmaking brand has issued a special edition Bremont C-17 Globemaster watch with UTC and chronograph functionality. Supplied exclusively to Boeing C-17 Globemaster III crews stationed on American bases around the world, the watch immediately attracted the attention of numerous enthusiasts. Yielding to numerous requests from the community, the British company finally decided to introduce a civilian version. Prepare to love the new Bremont World Timer ALT1!
Starting as low as $2350 for a version with a leather strap, the GrandeVitesse Chronograph 24h is so far one of the most attractive “sporty” models from Longines. As usual, it features a robust and reliable caliber put inside a case crafted from high-grade stainless steel. What else would you expect from a watch that costs as high as $2.5K?
The recent series of Breitling for Bentley GMT Chronographs is equipped with a chronometer movement officially certified by the local COSC authority. Presented in a predictably larger than life case, which is currently available both in steel and in 18-karat rose gold (and something tells me that there is also a two-tone version on the way,) the “sporty” collection makes a strong impression: if not with its style, then with its shameless kitschiness.
