Breitling Premier Bentley Centenary LE: Finally, a Bentley Watch You Can Wear Swiss

Well, not really "finally" because this new limited edition is based on the last year's Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green. The correct title would sound like "That's Why This New Breitling Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition Chronograph is One More Chance to Get Yourself a Bentley Watch You Can Wear," yet it would be too long (and too clickbaity,) so, please, forgive me this attempt at sensationalism.

Jaquet Droz Museum Pocket Watch Swiss

Earlier this month, Jaquet Droz has presented its piece unique: the Museum Pocket Watch. It 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-karat red gold body.

Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days Oro Rosso (Ref. PAM00511) Swiss

Panerai has recently its growing range of in-house movements with yet another nice job. Called Caliber P.5000, the new hand-wound engine offers an impressive combination of beautifully laconic decoration with surprisingly efficient design and impressive power reserve. The first timekeeper to be equipped with the new caliber happened to be the new Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days Oro Rosso (PAM 511) that was presented in New York in July 2013.

Jaquet Droz The Eclipse Ivory Enamel (Ref. J012613200) Swiss

First revealed in the year 2012 with a sexy jet-black onyx dial, the updated Jaquet Droz Eclipse has been reissued in an even dressier version with its face finished with ivory Grand Feu enamel (which is not only pleasant to look at but is also difficult to manufacture on an industrial scale). Although the beige-colored plate of the J012613200 doesn't do a particularly good job mimicking a night sky, it still makes the watch a perfect choice for those looking for a dressy moon-phase timekeeper.

Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Off-Centered Ivory Enamel Automatic (Ref. J006033200) Swiss

The new Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Off-Centered Ivory Enamel (Ref. J006033200) is delivered in a finely crafted, albeit slightly oversized red-gold body and features the most elegant hand-made dial that features rare (and expensive, since the process cannot be automated) Grande Feu enameling, off-centered sub-dials forming figure eight and a nice mix of Roman and Arabic numerals.

Corum Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Chrono Automatic Swiss

The Swiss watchmaker Corum has finally added a chronograph model to its Legend 42 line of compact sporty watches. Called Corum Admiral's Cup Legend 42 Chrono, the new chronograph is equipped with an ETA-based COSC-certified chronometer movement and, as you have probably already guessed, comes in a mid-sized body only 42 millimeters in diameter. The watch was revealed last weekend during the Baselworld 2012 trade show in Switzerland.

Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime World Time Automatic Swiss

The new Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime "worldtimer" brings you a still quite rare complication that allows you to constantly be aware of current time in any of the 24 main time zones. Although from the point of view of functionality and design the new timepiece strongly reminds me of the outstanding Girard-Perregaux WW.TC family of traveler's timekeepers, the movement that powers the new Breitling is completely in-house, being developed, assembled and finished at their own production facilities.

Omega Constellation Ladies 27 mm: Now With Co-Axial Caliber 8521 For Ladies / Swiss

Omega's dressy line of Constellation timekeepers has recently been updated with a super-compact model that now packs their high-grade Omega Co-Axial Calibre 8521 automatic movement into a diminutive 27 mm rose gold case. Although some may find this particular Omega Constellation ref. model with its loads of gold, gold-colored mother-of-pearl and a set of huge diamonds as blingy as a wedding gift from Tutankhamun himself, it sure looks great in its own daring way.
