Showing Skin: A New Vintage-Inspired Dive Watch from Longines

There should be no surprise that Longines released another attractive dive watch during Baselworld this year. After all, it was only a few years ago that the vintage-inspired Legend Diver captivated social media and the horological blogosphere as a whole. Going even further back, the HydroConquest has had a steady presence in the brand’s catalog...

Jaquet Droz Strips Down for its First-Ever Skeletonized Watch (with Macro Shots)

Jaquet Droz — a brand made famous by its eponym’s venture into automata production during the mid-to-late 1700s — isn’t one to follow a trend. That’s why the decision to release the brand’s first skeletonized watch was a surprise highlight for many of my colleagues and myself at this year’s Baselworld fair. Since its revival...

MeisterSinger Introduces its First Astronomical Watch

MeisterSinger is best known for producing watches that utilize a single hand to tell time. This, of course, lends itself to a more relaxing interpretation of the traditional way we read our watches. Rather than following a to the second — or minute, even — display, most MeisterSinger timepieces are read in five-minute increments. This...

Grand Seiko Announces a New Caliber and Multiple New Watches

During Baselworld 2017, Seiko made the announcement that it was separating its Seiko and Grand Seiko lines. This move made a lot of sense at the time. The idea was that they are already equally beloved by Seiko-holics, but this distinction helps make the difference apparent to everyone else. One consequence of this meant that...

The Flow of Time: HYT Reaches New Heights with the Updated H20 Watch

Time flies — or, in this case, flows. HYT unveiled its original "hydromechanical" watch, the HYT H1, at Baselworld 2012. In the years since, we've seen the iconoclastic brand introduce new technical updates, new colorways, and a variety of other innovations. This year, HYT showed its wares at January's SIHH watch salon, with its headliner being the new HYT H20 watch.

With Baselworld 2018 right around the corner, there are plenty of new watches to discuss.

This isn’t the first time a tourbillon has been included in a dive watch — both...

Ferdinand Berthoud Looks Into the Past to Introduce a New Regulator Watch

It’s only been a few years since the Ferdinand Berthoud marque was resurrected by the Chopard Group but there’s no doubt that it has been extraordinarily impactful during that time.

Piaget Introduces Another Record-Breaking Watch

When Piaget announced that it was releasing the world’s thinnest automatic watch at SIHH this year, it didn’t surprise anyone. In the constant struggle over being a horological record holder, Piaget has been a dominant force in the pursuit of ultra-thinness with only Bulgari as a competitor. What no one expected, however, was that Piaget would...

The New Cartier Santos: The First Men’s Wristwatch Gets a Modern Makeover

It was in 1904, when pocketwatches were still in style for gentlemen, that pioneering aviator and bon vivant Alberto Santos-Dumont approached his friend, Louis Cartier, about fashioning for him a timepiece that he could wear, and check the time, while keeping both hands on the controls of his aircraft. The watch that Cartier made for...
