The next-generation Oris Aquis is not a clunky tool watch. Although still highly functional this watch is more a stylish and crisp interpretation of a diving watch than an actual instrument you take with you underwater. Style is the key in the new Aquis.

Montblanc 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Limited Edition
This year Montblanc won the award for the best chronograph at the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève with its 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Limited Edition 100. The highly classic mono-pusher chronograph in its steel 44mm case with blue dial was inspired by models from the 1930s, and that is easy to see in the layout of the dial and the rounded bezel. The steel model won gold, and now a bronze variant has been added to the collection.

The Vacheron Constantin Overseas World Time 7700V is a lucky dreamer

vacheron-constantin-overseas-world-time-7700v-02
The forgotten Genta – maybe that’s what we should call the Vacheron Constantin Overseas. The sporty and luxurious Nautilus and Royal Oak have been in the spotlight for many years, but the Overseas had mostly been operating in the shadows. Until now. 2016 is the year of the Overseas and that means quite a number of newly designed models, including the World Time that we are submitting to a user’s test.

Rolex-Air-King-or-Tudor-Heritage-Black-Bay-00
With the introduction of the Heritage Black Bay in 2012 Tudor hit the bull’s-eye.
