TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition

Created in partnership with Porsche, the new TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition is a luxury smartwatch inspired by the design of the iconic all-electric Porsche Taycan. It comes with exclusive Wear OS features for Porsche owners where information from their car is displayed directly on the watch face.

The watch follows the launch of the TAG Heuer x Porsche Carrera Chronograph, which celebrated the two companies’ rich history of motor racing heritage and the launch of a global partnership in 2021.

Since 2015, TAG Heuer has been producing luxury smart watches. The new Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition offers Porsche owners and fans access to TAG Heuer’s ever-growing ecosystem of exclusive sports, wellness apps and elegant watch faces.

TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 - Porsche Edition

Both the physical watch and the software have design features in the same shade of frozen blue used in the iconic electric Taycan, which evokes the car’s exterior. Wearers of the TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition will have access to an exclusive watch face, available only to owners of the special Porsche smartwatch.

Inspired by printed circuit boards and racing circuits, the watch face offers an animated visual effect which connects TAG Heuer watches and Porsche cars with a feeling of technology and speed.

The watch also offers complications which display information from compatible Porsche models directly on the watch face, such as car battery percentage and total mileage.

The watch’s design evokes Porsche’s blue Taycan, with a large 45-mm case in black titanium, highlighted with details in the distinctive frozen blue metallic shade seen on the car.

The case is sandblasted black titanium. The black ceramic polished bezel has a dedicated scale going from zero to 400, referencing the Porsche car’s speed, which can be used to read functions relating to the car or to display metrics like heart rate.

The black steel crown surrounded with black rubber is highlighted with the TAG Heuer shield in frozen blue lacquer, and the pushers also carry the same iconic blue shade. At the bottom of the bezel, the word Porsche is highlighted in frozen blue, as is the ‘100’ at the top.

The watch’s titanium case back is engraved with ‘TAG Heuer x Porsche’ around the LED heart rate sensor used for the watch’s fitness features.

The watch’s strap is built to evoke the iconic design used in the interior of the Porsche cars. Designed in carbon-like black calf skin with blue stitching, it echoes the leather finishing inside the car in both color and structure.

The watch’s strap has a rubber base for a comfortable and sporty wear. As with all TAG Heuer Connected watches, the strap is interchangeable, with a spare black rubber version inside the box.

TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 - Porsche Edition

The TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition also has a cutting-edge range of fitness features, including guided workouts built into the TAG Heuer Sport app on the watch.

The watch shows off technical improvements across the board compared to the previous generations of TAG Heuer Connected watches, with a brighter screen, better contrast, and a battery life 30% longer than previous models.

Transferring data from and to the watch via a paired iOS or Android app is also faster, thanks to Bluetooth 5.0.

The TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition watch is part of the new generation TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 offering a blend of elegance and performance.

The TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition has a 45-mm diameter case with a ceramic bezel. The crown has a large diameter, and stands out from the watch, so there’s lots of room for a finger to access the crown, making it easy to navigate apps on the go.

The pushers have a mechanical feel, highlighting TAG Heuer’s 162 years of heritage in making high-end watches.

Running a customized version of Google’s Wear OS system, the watch offers a range of exclusive timers and sport and wellness apps which highlight TAG Heuer’s expertise in sports timing, including motorsports.

The TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition watch comes with an exclusive watch face, ‘Circuit’, only available to owners of the watch.

The new ‘Circuit’ watch face is highlighted in frozen blue, with a design inspired both by electrical circuitry (in a nod to both the electric Taycan and the TAG Heuer Connected watch itself) and to racing circuits.

Three chronograph-style complications can be used to display information from the watch directly on screen, such as step counter and heart rate, or information drawn directly from compatible Porsche models.

Compatible models include the Panamera (G2 II models from 2022 onwards), Panamera (G2), 911 (992 models from 2022 onwards), 911, Cayenne (E3 models from 2022 onwards), Cayenne (E2 II), 718, Macan II/III, Macan, Taycan.

Users of the watch who own a compatible Porsche model (listed above) will be able to connect their watch to their car, and see information displayed in ‘complications’ on the watch face.

To do this, users simply connect their watch to the car using the exclusive Wear OS My Porsche app on their watch.

There are four complications available at launch. The first shows how much is left in the car’s battery, and works with both all-electric Porsche model and plug-in hybrids.

The second shows off ‘car autonomy’ information, displaying how many kilometers remain before the car’s battery or gas runs out. The third is a shortcut to the Wear OS My Porsche app which enables users to quickly control their vehicle heating and air conditioning.

The last complication shows the total mileage driven in the car. To activate these features, users need to have Porsche ID, Porsche Connect subscription and the My Porsche app on the watch and phone.

Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Mechanical Chronograph 1969 Re-Interpretation

Introduced in 1969, Seiko Speedtimer was one of the world’s first automatic chronographs. It was equipped with the Seiko Caliber 6139, the first automatic chronograph movement to incorporate both a column wheel and a vertical clutch.

The new Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Mechanical Chronograph 1969 Re-Interpretation pays tribute to the historic timepiece.

Inspired by the iconic Seiko 5 Speedtimer 1969 chronograph, the new Re Interpretation ensures highly precise elapsed time measurement. It comes with a blue dial with vertical hairline finish.

Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Mechanical Chronograph 1969 Re-Interpretation

The white sub-dials and outer dial ring markers provide contrast against the blue dial. The chronograph hands are in red color.

The chronograph second hand is gently curved down towards the dial so that the tip of the hand is as close as possible to the dial’s markers and extends right to the tachymeter markings at the dial edge. The minute and hour hands as well as the edge of the indexes are generously coated with Lumibrite. The chronograph pushers with a wide and flat upper surface facilitate secure and accurate operability.

Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Mechanical Chronograph 1969 Re-Interpretation

This new Speedtimer is powered by Caliber 8R46, which incorporates both vertical clutch and column wheel mechanisms, just like the 1969 original. The vertical clutch eliminates any shuddering or jumping of the hands and so enhances the measurement accuracy while the column wheel ensures the precise control of the chronograph operation. This 45 hours self-winding movement provides a power reserve of 45 hours.

Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Mechanical Chronograph 1969 Re-Interpretation

Thanks to Seiko’s unique three-pointed hammer, when the re-set pusher is depressed, the hands return to zero instantly and in perfect synchronization.

The Seiko Speedtimer Chronograph reference SRQ043 has a 42.5mm stainless steel case with a dual-curved sapphire crystal and exhibition case-back. The watch is fitted on a specially designed stainless steel bracelet that offers excellent stability and a high level of comfort on the wrist. Both the case and bracelet are super-hard coated. The brand is also offering an additional leather strap for this timepiece.

Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Mechanical Chronograph 1969 Re-Interpretation

A new addition to the Prospex collection, the new Speedtimer chronograph will be available from September 2022 at the Seiko Boutiques and selected retail partners worldwide.

Kurono Calendrier ‘Type I’

Kurono Tokyo has announced the launch of Calendrier ‘Type I’, a new complete calendar watch designed by renowned Japanese watchmaker Hajime Asaoka.

This new automatic timepiece features a high-polished coin edge bezel and an Art Deco style khaki dial.

The cylinder dial is designed to curve from the center to the outer edge of the dial, and two dial layers are pressed together to create a three-dimensional effect. The numerals in Blackletter font are printed in a raised format to harmonize with this design.

Kurono Calendrier 'Type I'

The combination of high-polish leaf hands for the hour and minute hands with modern hands is a typical Kurono design. The hour and minute hands are curved at both ends, and are paired with a counterweighted second hand. The tips of the second and minute hands are bent by hand.

The other highlights include the railway-track minute markers at the periphery and two guilloche sub-dials with polished leaf hands.

The Kurono Calendrier ‘Type I’ watch is equipped with the Miyota 9122 automatic movement made in Japan. This 26 jewel calibre with center seconds and full calendar offers a power reserve of 40 hours.

Kurono Calendrier 'Type I'

The watch displays the day and month via two guilloche sub-dials positioned respectably at 9 and 3 o’clock. It displays the date via an aperture at 6 o’clock.

Made of 316L stainless steel, the case is mounted with a newly designed coin-edged bezel. The case sides are mirror-finished. The case-back is finished with a circular lettering design, as seen on vintage watches.

The box-type sapphire crystal is inspired by the domed acrylic glass of a vintage watch. Designed for the Calendrier ‘Type I’, its shape is 0.15 mm higher than that of an ordinary sapphire box crystal. Water resistance of this model is 5 ATM.

The suggested retail price of this limited edition Kurono triple calendar watch is JPY 243,000 (approximately US $1,787). Available from: 11 August 2022.

Casio G-SHOCK GM-B2100

The best-selling G-SHOCK 2100 series from Casio now welcomes a full-metal variant, the GM-B2100.

GA-2100 was introduced in 2019 as a modern interpretation of the very first G-SHOCK, the DW-5000C. Thanks to its streamlined, minimalist design and the attractive octagonal bezel design, this model became a highly sought-after contemporary timepiece.

Casio G-SHOCK GM-B2100D-1AER

The new “CASIOAK” with metal design proudly features iconic octagonal bezel of the 2100 line. The Casio G-SHOCK GM-B2100 watch employs stainless steel as the exterior material for the case, band, and bezel.

Casio G-SHOCK GM-B2100BD-1AER

In order to ensure shock resistance, the shock-resistant structure created for the iconic shape of the full-metal GMW-B5000 was adopted for the screw-back case, band, and bezel joints of these watches as well, with buffering components made of fine resin installed between the bezel and case.

Casio G-SHOCK GM-B2100GD-5AER

Solid and stylish, the octagonal bezel of G-SHOCK GM-B2100 was made using multiple processes: forging, then cutting and polishing.

Casio G-SHOCK GM-B2100D-1AER

To accentuate the beauty of the metal, the components are treated with different finishes — the bezel with a circular hairline finish on its top surface, the band with a vertical hairline finish, and the bezel bevel, buttons and case back with a mirror finish.

Casio G-SHOCK GM-B2100GD-5AER

The dial is composed of multiple parts to create depth and dimension, while the inset dial ring at the 9 o’clock position and the index marks are treated with a vapor deposition finish.

Zenith Chronomaster Original Limited Edition for Hodinkee

In partnership with Hodinkee, Swiss luxury watch brand ZENITH has created a limited edition Chronomaster Original watch with the powerful El Primero 3600 automatic 1/10th of a second chronograph caliber.

Introduced in 2021, the Chronomaster Original series takes inspiration from the original ZENITH A386 of 1969. Dressed in a robust 38mm diameter case, the new Zenith Chronomaster Original Hodinkee watch has a matte opaline salmon dial with counters in three shades of grey and rhodium-plated hands and indexes.

Zenith Chronomaster Original Limited Edition for Hodinkee

The date wheel of the date window positioned at 4:30 has the matching the color of the dial. The facetted hour-markers as well as the hour and minute hands are coated with SuperLuminova SLN C1. The central chronograph hand makes one turn in 10 seconds. The watch has three sub-dials: the small seconds at 9 o’clock, 60-minute counter at 6 o’clock, and 60-second counter at 3 o’clock.

Zenith Chronomaster Original Limited Edition for Hodinkee

The stainless steel case is flanked by familiar pump-style pushers and brushed lugs. The domed sapphire crystal of the Chronomaster Original for Hodinkee is inspired by the acrylic lenses found on vintage ZENITH timepieces like the A386.

Zenith Chronomaster Original Limited Edition for Hodinkee

Visible through the sapphire caseback, the Caliber 3600 boasts the same high-beat rate and column-wheel design of the iconic El Primero caliber.

This new ZENITH El Primero movement comes with modern technical enhancements that ensure smooth running and reliability. The chronograph seconds hand traverses the dial once every ten seconds. Also, rather than drive the chronograph via the movement’s fourth wheel, as the original caliber 400 did, the El Primero 3600 runs the chronograph directly off its high-tech silicon escape wheel.

Zenith Chronomaster Original Limited Edition for Hodinkee

This exclusive Zenith Hodinkee watch is fitted on a stainless steel tapered bracelet with polished center links, outer links with polished edges, and a folding clasp.

The Zenith Chronomaster Original Limited Edition for Hodinkee is available as a 300-piece limited edition for $9,500 through the HODINKEE Shop and ZENITH’s online boutique.

Rolex Sea-Dweller Ref. 116600 Vs Ref. 126600

Introduced in 1967, Sea-Dweller is a series of deep-diving watches from Rolex. The reference 116600 was launched in 2014 and the ref. 126600 in 2017. The brand discontinued the Sea-Dweller Ref. 116600 in 2017. Let us compare these two Sea-Dweller watches.

Case

The case material is same: 904L steel (now known as Oyster steel). The diameter is different: 40mm for Ref. 116600 and 43mm for Ref. 126600. Water resistant to 1,220 metres (4,000 feet), both models feature helium escape valve, screw-down crown with fluting, screw-down winding-crown with Triplock waterproofness system, and integrated crown guards.

Crystal

The sapphire crystal glass of Ref. 126600 is provisioned with a Cyclops lens window over the date whereas Sea-Dweller Ref. 116600 does not have this element.

Rolex Sea-Dweller Ref. 116600
Sea-Dweller Ref. 116600

Bezel

Both references feature 120-click unidirectional diving bezel to carry out countdown function up to sixty minutes. It is a vital component of modern diving watches.

Rolex Sea-Dweller Ref. 116600 has an aluminium bezel insert marked with a triangle with lumed dot at 0/60, large rectangular markers (for 5, 15, 25, 35, 45 & 55 ) and numerals for 10, 20, 30, 40 & 50.  It is to be noted that the 0 to 15 scale is highlighted with medium-size minute markers. The remaining minutes (between 15 and 60) are displayed with smaller markers.

The Sea-Dweller Ref. 126600 is equipped with Cerachrom bezel-insert, which is more durable and scratch-proof than the aluminium ones. All graduations on the bezel of Ref. 126600 are displayed in the same pattern of 116600.

Rolex Sea-Dweller Ref. 126600
Sea-Dweller Ref. 126600

Dial

The Sea-Dweller 116600 has a black, satin-finished black dial with all texts in white color. The reference 126600 features a glossy black dial with SEA-DWELLER in red and other inscriptions in white. Both models come with Chromalight hands and markers.

Movement

Both models feature Manufacture self-winding movements made by Rolex. The Sea Dweller Ref. 116600 is equipped with the Caliber 3135, which offers a power reserve of 48 hours. The reference 126600 is powered by Calibre 3235. Thanks to the advanced Chronergy escapement, this movement provides a power reserve of 70 hours.

Bracelet

Both references are fitted with Oyster (three links) bracelet made of Oystersteel. This bracelet comes with the innovations like Oysterlock folding safety clasp, Glidelock extension system and Fliplock extension link.

In 2021, Rolex removed the provisioning of the Fliplock extension link from the Sea-Dweller 126600 series. Introduced in 2008 with the Rolex Deepsea model, this mechanism is used for lengthening the bracelets by approximately 26 mm.

The latest production Sea-Dweller Reference 126600-0002 comes without the Fliplock extension link. The newly released Deepsea 136660 is also delivered without this bracelet extension system.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Sorayama MB Limited Edition

The star-shaped bridge redesigned by Sorayama, turns curvy and full polished, same as the titanium case and bracelet, like an echo of his metallic 3D sculptures. The micro rotor displays a moiré effect, with a fixed fringed sapphire glass and a mobile engraved metallic part, to remind the artist’s obsession about light reflection.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Sorayama MB Limited Edition

The white lacquered box is adorned with hot-stamped Roger Dubuis with Sorayama font.

Featuring a 43mm diameter case in Oystersteel and the self-winding 3235 calibre, the Sea-Dweller Ref. 126600 maintains a water resistance of 1,220 metres or 4,000 feet.

The first model from this generation is Reference 126600-0001, which features a black dial with red SEA-DWELLER inscription as a tribute to the Single Red prototypes produced in the 1960s. In 2021, Rolex replaced this model with a new reference 126600-0002.

The majority of the aesthetic and technical characteristics of both references remain same. A notable difference is that the new Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600-0002 comes without the Fliplock extension links.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea 44mm New Models (references 136660-0003 and 136660-0004)

Rolex has launched two new 44mm variants of its DEEPSEA professional diving watch from the SEA-DWELLER family.

The new Rolex Deepsea 44mm reference 136660-0003 features a D-blue face where as the ref. 136660-0004 has a black dial. The D-Blue dial was first appeared in the Rolex Deepsea Reference 116660B launched in 2014 to celebrate James Cameron’s historic solo dive in 2012.

Both timepieces are fitted with 60-minute graduated unidirectional rotating bezel topped with Cerachrom bezel insert in black ceramic and Oyster bracelet.

Water resistant to a depth of 3,900 metres (12,800 feet), the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea 44mm is a formidable timepiece dedicated to deep diving activities. It features the state-of-the-art Ringlock System case architecture with a Helium escape valve.

The massive Oystersteel case of the watch is reinforced with the patented Ringlock System, which ensures optimum waterproofness. It houses the Calibre 3235, a new-generation self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Equipped with the patented Chronergy escapement, it provides a power reserve of 70 hours.

The Rolex Deepsea watch displays the date at 3 o’clock, but without the signature Cyclops date window. The dial side is protected with a 5.5mm thick sapphire crystal glass.

The large Chromalight hour markers and hands with luminescent material emit a long-lasting blue glow, ensuring excellent readability of the indications. The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea 44mm references come with Oyster type bracelet made of Oystersteel.

The Oyster bracelet is equipped with an Oysterlock clasp, which prevents accidental opening, and an ingenious Glidelock, allowing fine adjustments of the bracelet without using any tools.

Rolex Deepsea 136660 Vs 126660

The Rolex Deepsea watch was introduced in 2008 with the reference number 116660. Specially created for professional diving activities, it has a case diameter of 44mm.

In 2018, Rolex 44mm Deepsea Watch Ref. 126660 was launched to replace the reference 116660. This year, the brand has introduced the new 136660 series.

The case material and dimensions remain same for Ref. 126660 and Ref. 136660. The movement is also same: Calibre 3235. The visible differences that set apart the new Deepsea reference 136660 from its immediate predecessor are the narrower bezel design, slightly larger date window and the absence of the bracelet’s Fliplock extension link.

UNIMATIC Modello Uno U1S-FAI Limited Edition

Milan-based watch brand UNIMATIC extends its support to FAI — Fondo per l’Ambiente Italiano (the National Trust for Italy) – by launching a dedicated watch: the Modello Uno U1S-FAI.

FAI is a non-profit foundation established in 1975 with the aim of protecting and enhancing Italy’s historical, artistic and landscape heritage. Thanks to FAI efforts, Italy has seen many of its beautiful sites saved from neglect, restored, promoted and opened to the public.

UNIMATIC Modello Uno U1S-FAI Limited Edition

Modello Uno U1S-FAI is UNIMATIC’s pledge to support FAI and stand by its threefold mission to safeguard Italy’s heritage; to promote education, appreciation, awareness and enjoyment of Italy’s environment, landscape and artistic heritage; as well as to monitor the protection of Italy’s natural and cultural assets.

The Uno U1S-FAI watch features a galvanic black dive dial with markers in Super-LumiNova® C1 white lume, which are accurately painted by hand on every piece, which is chosen to pay homage to traditional watchmaking and Italian craftsmanship, as opposed to the standard silkscreening or pad printing application.

The markers in Super-LumiNova® match the raised lume dot of the FAI green aluminium minimal insert that is placed within the 120 clicks mono-directional bezel.

The solid 316 brushed stainless steel case, the ‘UNIMATIC sostiene FAI’ screwed-in caseback, the 8 mm diameter crown, together with the 2.5mm thick double domed sapphire, are all set to guarantee the 30 atm (300m/1,000ft) water resistance to which each watch is individually tested, along with time accuracy.

UNIMATIC Modello Uno U1S-FAI Limited Edition

The Uno U1S-FAI watch comes on a black two-piece calf leather strap, and it features a spare FAI green NATO strap with a FAI orange nylon keeper. In the tough case, together with the watch, spare strap and UNIMATIC warranty card with unique ID seal, one will also find a FAI Membership card.

NOVE Gemini Limited Edition

NOVE Gemini is an innovative reversible watch with a patented mechanism that allows quick swapping of the two dials.

This contemporary timepiece is inspired by some of the iconic reversible watches of the 20th Century. Introduced in 2021, this dual face watch evokes the celestial twins (Castor and Pollux) of Gemini, one of the constellations of the zodiac.

NOVE Gemini Limited Edition

Swiss made, this uniquely designed wristwatch houses two Ronda quartz movements to drive the timekeeping functions of two dials. The first calibre is Slimtech 1062, which powers the display of sunray gradient dial (red to black) side with two hands (hour and minutes).

NOVE Gemini Limited Edition watch

The second calibre (Slimtech 1064) drives three hands (hour, minute and small seconds) of the matte black dial. Both dials are elegantly designed with a minimalistic, easy to read back ground with dotted hour-markers and luminescent, leaf-shaped hands for the hour and minute. The black dial has a discreet small seconds counter just below the centre-point of the dial.

NOVE Gemini Limited Edition

Brilliantly designed, the Gemini watch is equipped with a patented gear-driven housing ring that allows the dial to rotate 180 degrees before locking back into the base. As both display sides are independent, you may use the NOVE Gemini as a dual-time zone watch by setting home time and local time.

NOVE Gemini Limited Edition

Measuring 49.2mm diameter and 13.3mm thickness, the case is made of 316L stainless steel. Fitted with a sapphire crystal glasses and screw-down crown, it is water resistant up to 50 meters. The watch comes with a solid stainless steel bracelet.

Innovative and playful, NOVE Gemini is a limited edition of 500 pieces.

Hand-made by expert craftsmen, the NOVE Gemini watch has a retail price of $880.00 (USD). It comes with a three years guarantee. Please visit NOVE watches website for more details.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway Limited Edition

Swiss luxury watch brand Cuervo y Sobrinos pays tribute to its former patron, Ernest Hemingway, with the release of a new series.

These timepieces have been developed in partnership with Hemingway Limited, an organization that manages the Ernest Hemingway trademarks. Cuervo y Sobrinos is the first watch brand to be officially licensed by Hemingway Limited, dedicated to a great literary figure.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway Limited Edition 3189.1HB with brown dial

Hemingway lived in Cuba at ‘Finca Vigia’ for 20 years (1939 – 1960). During that period, the literary genius frequently visited the Cuervo y Sobrinos boutique. Now, the brand has chosen to honour the former patron of the firm with a new series of watches produced in collaboration with Hemingway Limited.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway Limited Edition 3189.1HC with cream dial

The Historiador Hemingway comprises four watches. The creative team at Cuervo y Sobrinos has selected vintage-inspired shades such as mellow creams and tobacco toned hues, colours that would have been familiar to Ernest during his time in Cuba.

This new model is officially licenced by Hemingway Limited, an organisation that manages the Ernest Hemingway© trademark, initiated by Ernest’s eldest son, Jack and founded by the three sons, in 1988. This timepiece comes with a choice of cream or brown dials. Both versions are limited to 140 pieces each.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway Limited Edition set

In addition, Cuervo y Sobrinos also offers a two-piece set comprising one watch with a silver dial and a second watch with a black dial.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway Limited Edition 3189.1HA with silver dial

The two-piece set is presented in a travel humidor that can also be used for transporting cigars. The sets are limited to just 30 examples and include two additional black straps.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway Limited Edition 3189.1HN with black dial

The hour and minute hands are colour-coordinated and lined with Super-LumiNova®, aiding readability in dim light. The centre seconds hand features a circular counterweight with its shade determined by the dial hue selected.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway Limited Edition 3189.1HC with cream dial

Each hour is denoted with bold Arabic numerals, again lined with Super-LumiNova®. A fine minute track encircles the dial area, facilitating ease of read off, while an applied CyS emblem is positioned at noon.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway Limited Edition 3189.1HB with brown dial

Measuring 40mm in diameter, the stainless steel Historiador case stands out with its vintage-inspired appearance and ergonomic elongated lugs. The case back is engraved with a Hemingway logo, as a tribute to the legendary American novelist.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway Limited Edition caseback

The Historiador Hemingway is equipped with the CyS 5121 calibre, an automatic Swiss movement. Based on the Sellita SW 200, the movement features an engraved oscillating weight and has a power-reserve of 38 hours.

Each timepiece is fitted with a matching color leather strap with CyS-branded clasp. Those watches featuring a black or brown dial have an 18k gold limited edition plate mounted on the side of the case.

Orient Star Diver 1964 2nd Edition

Japanese watch brand Orient Star has added two new Diver 1964 2nd edition models to its Sports Collection.

Following the release of the Orient Star Diver 1964 1st edition (reference RE-AU0501B) last year, the new Diver 1964 2nd edition pays tribute to this proud history once again by combining specific design elements of Calendar Auto Orient from 1964 with a modern, high-performance in-house movement. This full-fledged divers’ watch is compliant with the ISO 6425 standard.

Introduced in 2021, the Diver 1964 1st edition marked Orient Star’s 70th anniversary. The latest addition, the Diver 1964 2nd edition, is based on the Calendar Auto Orient, one of the company’s first divers’ watches released in 1964.

Orient Star Diver 1964 2nd Edition with Black dial RE-AU0601B

The Calendar Auto Orient featured simple dot indices on a mirror black finished dial, hands designed for excellent visibility, a rotating bezel incorporating an anodized aluminum ring, and sharply defined lugs.

The original Calendar Auto Orient equipped with an automatic movement was even more popular among watch aficionados than the hand-winding Olympia Calendar Diver which served as the inspiration for the Diver 1964 1st edition.

Orient Star Diver 1964 2nd Edition with Green dial RE-AU0602E

While the new Diver 1964 2nd edition reflects the designs inherited from the original model, it features the same specifications enhanced for the Diver 1964 1st edition such as a screw down crown, a screw case-back, a dual curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, and water resistance to 200 metres compliant with the ISO 6425 standard for air diving watches.

The in-house 46-F6 series F6N47 automatic movement provides high accuracy and a power reserve of over 50 hours. In addition to displaying the time and date, this Orient Star diving watch has a power reserve indicator, a rare function for divers’ watches.

Orient Star Diver 1964 2nd Edition with Black dial RE-AU0601B

The new Diver 1964 2nd edition is available with a black or green dial. The black version (reference RE-AU0601B) is a faithful tribute to the Calendar Auto Orient with a mirror black finish on the dial and a matching shiny black bezel surface.

The matte green dial version (reference RE-AU0602E) comes with a matching matte green bezel. The green gradation on the dial is inspired by the Ryusendo Cave in Iwate Prefecture, Japan.

Orient Star Diver 1964 2nd Edition with Green dial RE-AU0602E

Made of high-quality stainless steel (SUS316L), the compact 41-mm diameter case makes the watch ideal for everyday use.

The two new models of the Diver 1964 2nd edition deliver features of a full-fledged divers’ watch as well as designs steeped in the heritage of Orient Star.

Sold as regular models, both RE-AU0601B and RE-AU0602E feature five-piece link bracelet in 316L stainless steel. A divers’ extension structure and the trifold deployment buckle with push button and security latch are included. The pyramid-like ridges of the additional silicon strap echo the design of the metal band of the original Calendar Auto Orient.

Mühle-Glashütte Panova Turquoise Blue

Mühle-Glashütte’s new Panova watch takes inspiration from the blue of the ocean waves.

The Muhle-Glashutte Panova Turquoise blue watch personifies the charm of Pacific beaches, with hands coated in Super LumiNova as white as a strip of sand on an island floating above the turquoise-coloured face. Like a sandy beach, the white of the hands takes on different hues, seeming lighter or darker as if shaded by clouds or highlighted by the crystal waters of incoming waves.

Mühle-Glashütte Panova Turquoise Blue

As is typical of the Muhle-Glashutte Panova family, the ocean-inspired dial has a finely grained finish in which the light sparkles and glitters like it is reflecting off the seven seas.

Mühle-Glashütte Panova Turquoise Blue

The brushed stainless steel case is fitted with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and screw-in crown. This new Mühle watch is water-resistant up to 10 bars and can be worn in water when combined with its black and grey textile strap.

Mühle-Glashütte Panova Turquoise Blue

The textile strap can be swapped for a black leather version with a napped surface finish for a very sophisticated appearance. The single-pass straps are easy to replace in a few simple steps and are compatible with all other straps in the Panova family, both past and present.

Mühle-Glashütte Panova Turquoise Blue

The Panova Turquoise blue is equipped with the SW 200-1 Mühle version calibre. This automatic movement is fitted with the efficient Mühle rotor and particularly shockproof woodpecker neck regulation. These impressive components allow it to be regulated in six different positions and set to ensure accuracy values of between 0 and a maximum of +8 seconds per day.
