Frederique Constant Peking to Paris Automatic Limited Edition (ref. FC-303WBRP5B6) Swiss

The new limited edition Frederique Constant Peking to Paris (ref. FC-303WBRP5B6) may not be revolutionary or groundbreaking in any meaning of the words, but it still looks like a really interesting (albeit a tad overpriced) timekeeper for a person interested in a nice three-hander with a tad of sportiness to it. While the "limited edition" part may be a bit gimmicky (in a sense that you can't seriously expect a watch limited to almost 2900 pieces to become rarity in any foreseeable future,) all the rest about this watch is absolutely legit: it is an expertly designed, solidly built piece that is powered by a robust mechanism.


Alpina Seastrong Diver Heritage Automatic (refs. AL-525S4H6 & AL-525G4H6) Swiss

The new Alpina Seastrong Diver Heritage (refs. AL-525S4H6 & AL-525G4H6) collection of dressy divers is a clear reference to the brand's so-called "days of independence" when, back in the late 1950s and throughout all the 1960s, the company introduced one beautiful model after another. Although I can't really call it a real "homage" (and I actually like that it is not,) this new pair of timepieces does a very good job at recreating the spirit of the days long gone. Perhaps, the only thing that somehow devalues these gorgeous retro-styled models -besides the fact that, differing so much from other members of the Seastrong family, it needed to become a foundation of a completely new collection- is the simple mass-produced mechanism: each of these beauties just screams for a hand-wound NOS job!


Oris Divers Sixty-Five Automatic Swiss

First revealed earlier this year at Baselworld 2015 trade show, the new Oris Divers Sixty-Five (ref. 01 733 7747 4055-07 4 17 18) automatic diver pays homage a classic model from 1965. Although it is absolutely not a true reissue (even the choice of movement makes it a different model), the watch makes a strong impression and will be a wonderful choice for a person who wants to buy something "vintage", but with brand new guts to power it.


Oris Thelonious Monk Limited Edition Automatic (Ref. 733 7712 4085) Swiss

Known for its love for music (among others, their limited editions include homages to such legends as Frank Sinatra, John Coltrane, and Dexter Gordon) the Swiss watchmaker has recently introduced its limited edition Oris Thelonious Monk (ref. 733 7712 4085). Although in certain respects this new model may look very unfamiliar to a person who usually associates the brand with their gorgeous chronographs and bulky divers, it is in fact deeply rooted into the manufacture's philosophy of industrial design. As the legendary sculptor of the past, they took a piece of metal and removed everything that didn't belong there leaving only the truly essential elements that make an ordinary watch a true masterpiece.


Alpina Comtesse Automatic For Ladies / Swiss

With its new Alpina Comtesse (refs. AL-525APWD3CD3B and AL-525APW3CD6B) series, the Swiss watchmaking brand targets a wide array of customers, both in terms of exterior styling and price. While some people may find this "one for everyone" concept a bit too undiscriminating, the logic behind it is undeniable. After all, Alpina is here for the money and there seems to be nothing more cost-effective than offering a model that, as generic as it is, allows the brand to make so many nice variations without investing too much money designing the new collection.


JeanRichard Terrascope: Now in Rose Gold Swiss

JeanRichard Terrascope, a relatively new family of "masculine" timekeepers has just been updated with a number of "two-tone" models that successfully combine gold and steel. Carefully mixing textures and colors, the Swiss-based brand effectively one of the most attractive cushion-shaped watches currently available on the market.


Edox HydroSub North Pole Limited Edition Swiss

Presented earlier this year, the new Edox HydroSub North Pole (ref. 80201 3BUO BU) celebrates the upcoming 40th anniversary of the original Hydro Sub. With its total run limited to just 350 pieces, the model was chosen as an official timekeeper of an expedition to the geographic North Pole in February 2015. Not only at least two timepieces out of 350 will see one of the coldest places on Earth, but one of them will also be used by champion free diver Christian Redl of Germany during a world's first attempt at a free dive under the ice cap.


Archimede SportTaucher Kompass Automatic Diver German

The sporty Archimede SportTaucher automatic diving watch is now available with a new feature: a bidirectional rotating bezel graduated with a compass-style 360-degree scale. Although, unlike some electronic timekeepers, the new Archimede SportTaucher K (Kompass) doesn't have a real compass function, you can still use this little gadget to impress your girlfriend by finding north (or south). The only three things that you need to do achieve this are the watch, visible Sun, and a girlfriend.
