Montblanc TimeWalker Automatic Chronograph UTC Ceramic (ref. 116101) Swiss

Unveiled at the Baselworld 2017, the Montblanc TimeWalker Automatic Chronograph UTC Ceramic (ref. 116101) is a nice (if a bit overpriced to my taste) addition to the Swiss-based makers of luxury "writing instruments" that also happens to sell watches line of sporty chronographs. While some of the main selling points of this new watch -like, say, the choice of movement, as well as the combination of materials- look more "acceptable" to yours truly rather than even mildly "exciting," we at WorldWatchReview.com would still recommend getting one of these oversized pieces of, um, time-measuring opulence if the price is not a problem.


Oris Audi Sport Chronograph Limited Edition Swiss

Delivered in the colors and textures that are often associated with those of Audi's own racing team, the new Oris Audi Sport Chronograph (ref. 01 774 7661 7481-Set) doesn't look terribly original with its a bit boring layout and the same design elements we have seen for the last couple of years. However, being what it is, the wristwatch is solidly built and I am sure that fans of the German team will definitely love it.


Alpina Alpiner 4 Chronograph “Race for Water” Limited Edition (Ref. AL-860AD5AQ6) Swiss

With its extremely clean, visually lightweight dial and a nicely proportioned (as well as elegantly decorated) stainless steel body, this beautiful Alpina Alpiner 4 Chronograph "Race for Water" Limited Edition (ref. AL-860AD5AQ6) has only one major flaw: its total production run will be restricted to just 400 pieces, which, I am afraid, will not be enough to justify demand from the general public. Well, at least there is a chance that its resale value will not plunge as swiftly as it is often the case with products delivered by second-tier brands.


Oris TT3 Darryl O’Young Limited Edition Automatic Chronograph (Ref. 774 7611 7784 Set) Swiss

It looks like you really don't have to be a Michael Schumacher (I truly hope that this man of legend gets well soon) to get your own limited edition timepiece. Darryl O'Young, a 33 year old racer from Hong Kong who is still to prove that he is worthy the car that he drives in the World Touring Car Championship, has recently had his name put on the new Oris TT3 Darryl O'Young Limited Edition Automatic Chronograph (Ref. 774 7611 7784 Set). Based on their current TT3 model in a titanium body, it is both sporty and elegant: a rare combination that an average usually chronograph usually fails to achieve.


Alpina Startimer Pilot Black Star Automatic Chronograph (Ref. AL-860GB4FBS6) Swiss

You have probably already seen Alpina's recent Startimer ref. Al-860GB4S6 pilot's watch. Slightly oversized, it features that trendy bi-compax design and a very elegant overall styling of its dial. For this year, the Swiss watchmaking brand introduces another version. Called Alpina Startimer Pilot Black Star Automatic Chronograph (Ref. AL-860GB4FBS6), it differs from the earlier version only with its black body finish.


Oris RAID 2013 Chronograph Limited Edition (Ref. 01 775 7686 4084-Set) Swiss

Being an official time keeper of RAID Suisse-Paris classic car rally (this year the race, which is reserved exclusively to cars that were built before year 1975, will start on 22 August 2013) where dozens of oldtimers travel from Basel, Switzerland to Paris, France via Nancy and Reims, the Swiss watchmaker Oris introduces a new limited edition watch. This new Oris RAID 2013 Chronograph Limited Edition (Ref. 01 775 7686 4084-Set) looks very similar in styling to the Oris RAID 2011 Alarm Edition (Ref. 908 7607 4094) that was introduced two years ago, but features a different set of functions.


Oris Calobra Limited Edition (Ref. 774 7661 4484) Swiss

Based on their current Oris Artix GT Chronograph watch (Ref. 674 7661 4434), this new Oris Calobra Limited Edition (Ref. 774 7661 4484) differs from the original only with a slightly cheaper Sellita movement that replaces the classic ETA 7750 work-horse, but retains the easy to operate ceramic rotating bezel, as well as the signature dashboard-styled subsidiary second indicator at 9 o'clock.


Alpina Sailing Yachttimer Countdown Limited Edition Swiss

Set to be officially presented in later this month during the Baselworld 2013 trade show, this new Alpina Sailing Yachttimer Countdown builds on the lessons learned after the introduction of their earlier Extreme 40 Sailing Regatta Timer that was first revealed last year. Although powered by the same self-winding movement and sporting the same body, the new version of the watch offers a completely different (and quite attractive, too) dial layout.
