Paying homage to World War 2 era British codebreakers, this new chrono from Bremont uses actual parts from Britain’s once secretive Bletchley Park Government Code and Cipher School. The rotor of the watch is made from the wheel of an original Enigma cipher machine, while the crown is inset with a piece of pine taken from the floor of the fabled wartime facility.
With design cues taken from Italian race cars of the 1960s, the Portofino Chronograph’s 42mm case looks sporty yet classic. Nice move. And nice movement, as well. The self-winding mechanical movement is, of course, Swiss Made.
You’re looking at the smartest watch ever made. Not only will it tell you the correct time anytime, it also does all those other smart watch things like linking with your phone, and offering loads of apps to compliment your data-driven existence. It re-charges via Qi and runs 2 processors, one for high-speed wrist-computing, the other, a power-saving mode that will run the watch for 30 days without a recharge.
The new TAG Heuer Monaco Automobile Club de Monaco Black Edition is a new watch that’s somewhat connected to another vintage TAG from the 70s, but not exactly. Unless you happen to be a major league watch dork, the complicated lineage of this watch is much less interesting than the obvious & simple fact that it’s a black TAG and it looks good. Limited to 225 pieces.
The Breitling Emergency II is a Swiss-made luxury chronograph that also features a built-in dual-channel emergency satellite transmitter.

The award-winning TAG Heuer atelier has created some of the 21st-century’s biggest breakthroughs in watchmaking. At this year’s Baselworld Watch & Jewelry show they unveiled another: The first ever magnet-driven 100th-of-a-second chronograph. We think it looks wicked but it’ll take experts to explain the technology.

An Omega Speedmaster is one of the most iconic, legendary and sought after watches in the world. After all, it was the watch that NASA astronauts wore to the moon.

The black, ceramic version of their classic chrono features a 42.5mm case size & a black cordura strap with a ceramic clasp.
With big, bold displays & 1-button control, TomTom’s GPS Sport watches make accessing your stats & data super easy. The watches also create full-screen graphs that help you train more effectively. And for you old guys who like to know what time it is, they’ve got the clock function, too.
You can tell right away that the Type 3 watch from Ressence is not your standard timepiece. With no crown or traditional hands on the dial but instead a liquid-filled crystal with convex discs floating in a convex dial, the look of the Type 3 is totally unique & yet it’s still a mechanical watch. The technology is certainly complex but the smooth, rounded look of the display is stunning in its simplicity.
