It’s easy with any brand’s new release catalogue to get swept up with the drama and complexity of the halo pieces. In the case of Glashütte Original that glory goes to the flashy green of the Sixties Panorama Date, or the bells and whistles of the Senator Cosmopolite. But sometimes you crave something simple, clean and pure. That’s where this latest take on the Senator Excellence Panorama Date comes in.
First released in the late 1950s, and reintroduced in 2013, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms has become a regular sight these past two years. Appreciated for its vintage-inspired design, Blancpain’s new collection of diving watches is none-the-less full of modern appeal. The new Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Automatic stays faithful to the features that made the 2013 model such a great watch. As they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t change it!
At Baselworld 2018,Swiss Longines expanded its Record collection with several models including two new Record Automatic Chronometer references in rose gold that we are presenting here.
Certified as “chronometers” by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), these new models combine classic elegance with technical excellence.
Pushing the envelope is one of Hublot’s mantras and their sapphire watches are perhaps the best illustration as to what that can lead to. In a relatively short period of time, Swiss Hublot has not only mastered the art of creating sapphire cased watches, but they have also taken them to the next level. They can make them in different colors, from a beautiful blue to a deep, burgundy red.
While I may have started leaning towards thinner, more dressy watches, in my own watch preferences, I still find myself drawn to divers. There’s just a go anywhere sort of an attitude to them, and on a bracelet, you can certainly get away with trying to pair them with a suit (just make sure you’ve got wide cuffs). If you find yourself rowing that same boat, then you may want to have a look at the just-announced Orient Triton Diver.
