Tissot Heritage 1936 Hand-Wound (ref. T104.405.16.012.00) Swiss

During the last three or four years the Swiss-based watchmaker Tissot has introduced a number of great classic-styled timekeepers in their Heritage line. Among others, the collection included an absolutely stunning 2013 Heritage Navigator 160th Anniversary model that still stays in production. For this year, the entry-luxury brand adds an even more impressive (although deceptively simple) Tissot Heritage 1936 (ref. T104.405.16.012.00) mechanical wristwatch. Staying true to the collection's concept, the model combines deliciously vintage appearance with a time-proven hand-wound caliber and more than attractive price. What else would you want for Christmas?


Chr. Ward C5 Malvern Slimline Square Hand-Wound British

Equipped with a hand-wound Swiss made movement, the new Chr. Ward C5 Malvern Slimline Square wristwatch makes a strong impression. In fact, this new accessory, as deceptively unsophisticated as it is, may become one of the halo models for the British brand all over the civilized world, at least when it comes to people who can appreciate real beauty.


Oris Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 111 Hand-Wound Swiss

The new Oris Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 111 (ref. 01 111 7711 4163-Set 5 22 14FC), as the name implies, is powered by the Swiss brand's new Caliber 111 hand-wound movement. Developed and built on their own premises, the beautiful mechanism not only makes this new timekeeper even more exclusive, but also shows quite clearly that Oris has enough resources to make a wonderful caliber. Their new Cal. 111 is an in-house mechanism that, at least in terms of functionality and efficiency, rivals those recently introduced by a lot more established watchmaking houses.


Breitling Transocean Chronograph 1915 Swiss

The new Breitling Transocean Chronograph 1915 (ref. AB141112/G799-154A) is a wristwatch that nicely mixes its modern design language with visual elements from models dating back to as many as hundred years ago. While some of these elements (or rather the way they are mixed together) look a bit controversial, this new variety seems like a very nice offer for a person who finds their signature models like Navitimer and Chronomat a bit too arrogant and tasteless for a person of good taste.


Steinhart ST 10 Anniversary Edition (Ref. L0810) Swiss

Steinhart celebrates its tenth year in business with this new Steinhart ST 10 Anniversary Edition (Ref. L0810) limited edition wristwatch that deserves some attention. First, the German brand normally uses standard Swiss-made calibers to power their timekeepers. For a change, the ST10 is powered by a neatly decorated hand-wound movement from Unitas. Second, it comes with an unusual dial layout, although some may find it a bit, well, too unusual. Third, even as bulky as it is, the gadget is still compact enough for a sporty daily beater. Perhaps, the only thing that may turn some people off is the price: €1290 seems *ahem* a bit too steep for a Steinhart.


Armin Strom Skeleton Pure (Water, Air, Earth & Fire) Swiss

Presented in a traditional for the brand cold, technocratic style, the new Armin Strom Skeleton Pure is offered in four versions, each corresponding to certain key elements of nature. Namely: Water, Air, Earth & Fire with the "Air" being a model in lightweight titanium and the "Earth" featuring black PVD-coated stainless steel. All of them look absolutely fabulous.


Nomos Orion 1989 Fall of the Berlin Wall Limited Edition German

As the name implies, the new Nomos Orion 1989 Fall of the Berlin Wall Limited Edition wristwatch celebrates the 25th anniversary of the fall of the wall that not only led to reunification of Germany after more than four decades of Soviet occupation, but actually marked the end of the communist era in Eastern and Central Europe.


Jaquet Droz Museum Pocket Watch Swiss

Earlier this month, the Swiss watchmaking house Jaquet Droz has presented its piece unique: the Museum Pocket Watch. The watch was literally built around a time-worn 18th century movement that was lovingly (and also painstakingly) restored to its present glory in JD own workshops. Originally missing certain vital parts, the restored mechanism, as archaic as it is, looks magnificent and stately inside its massive 18-carat red gold body.


Eberhard & Co. Traversetolo Ambri Piotta (Ref. 21016) Swiss

The new Eberhard & Co. Traversetolo Ambri Piotta (Ref. 21016) is a classic hand-wound three-hander that features a surprisingly easy to read dial and is powered by the legendary Unitas 6498 caliber. Initially designed for pocket watches, the huge mechanisms look perfectly at home in this mildly oversized wristwatch.


A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Hand-Wound 38.5mm German

The 2014 dressy A. Lange & Sohne 1815 collection brings to the table the usual mix of craftsmanship and technical ingenuity that the German brand is associated with. Combining a painstakingly decorated hand-wound caliber with a compact body, which is now available in three colors of 18-karat gold, and a laconic solid silver dial the new members of the collection easily become dress watches of choice for men who don't limit their options only to timepieces bearing the usual "Swiss Made" inscription on their faces.
