Oris New York Harbor Limited Edition

Oris has launched a limited edition watch in support of Billion Oyster Project, an ambitious non-profit aiming to restore one billion oysters to New York Harbor, once one of the world’s most polluted waterways.

Oris New York Harbor Limited Edition

Billion Oyster Project was founded by educators Murray Fisher and Pete Malinowski. Since 2014, this organization has worked with more than 11,000 volunteers, 8,000 students, 100 New York City schools and 50 restaurant partners.

Billion Oyster Project has introduced 75 million juvenile oysters to 18 restoration sites covering 14.5 acres of New York Harbor, and the oyster population is now self-sustaining. The ultimate goal of this mission is to restore one billion oysters by 2035.

Oris New York Harbor Limited Edition

To support the project’s pioneering work, Oris has released the New York Harbor Limited Edition, a 2,000-piece limited edition based on the best-selling Aquis diver’s watch.

Oris New York Harbor Limited Edition

The signature feature of this timepiece is its green mother of pearl dial, inspired by the colour of the famous harbor’s water, and by oyster shell.

Oris 01 733 7766 4187-Set - New York Harbor Limited Edition

It is equipped with the Caliber 733, an automatic movement with 38 hours of power reserve, quickset date and stop second function. The date window is positioned at 6 o’clock.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet New Models, Ref. 5054-3640 / 5054-1210

Swiss luxury watch brand Blancpain has announced the launch of two new versions of its Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet (full calendar) model: a red gold version with a blue-gradient dial; and a titanium version with an anthracite dial.

The Bathyscaphe was created in 1956 with the aim of offering a diver’s watch whose size would make it suitable for everyday wear. It has evolved over the years and was reinterpreted by Blancpain in 2013 to mark the 60th anniversary of the Fifty Fathoms.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet red gold version with blue gradient dial

The Blancpain Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet model displays day and month via the two apertures placed below 12 o’clock, the date with a pointer hand and a moon phase positioned in a large window at 6 o’clock.

The 6654.P calibre of this Bathyscaphe features an innovative date mechanism with a security system. This enables the owner of the watch to handle each indication at any time, without any risk to the movement, unlike the usual calendar watches. This 28 jewel self-winding movement provides about 72 hours of power reserve.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet titanium version

Measuring 43 mm in diameter and water-resistant to 30 bar (approximately 300 m), the new Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet is available in two satin-brushed versions with well-marked contours: one in red gold and the other in grade 23 titanium.

The case thickness is 13.4mm and the lug width is 23mm. The red gold model is paired with a sunburst blue-gradient dial that catches the light with remarkable ease. The gold hour-markers, hands and moon match the case colour and the dial is framed by a unidirectional rotating bezel with a brilliant blue ceramic inlay featuring a Ceragold™ time scale.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet

The colour-material match continues on the back of the timepiece which reveals a red gold oscillating weight. Meanwhile, the titanium model is distinguished by subtle shades of grey. Its sunburst anthracite dial is enhanced by gold hour-markers, rhodium-plated hands and moon.

The likewise anthracite ceramic bezel is satin-brushed for a resolutely contemporary matt effect and bears a graduated Liquidmetal™ scale. The gold rotor of the titanium model has been given an anthracite NAC coating instilling a sporty and dynamic vibe.

The 18K red gold Blancpain Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet watch is available with a blue NATO or sailcloth strap, with the latter option also offering a choice between a pin buckle and a folding clasp. The titanium model comes with a titanium bracelet or a grey NATO or sailcloth strap.

Hawaiian Lifeguard Association Watch Collection

Launched to mark the 100th anniversary of Hawaiian Lifeguard Association, this watch collection serves the requirements of daring lifeguards on the job.

All the Hawaiian Lifeguard Association watches can withstand enormous power of the ocean. They are also excellent knock-around watches, suitable for most any water environment. Plus, they’re just cool looking casual lifestyle timepieces, perfect for everyday wear.

The HLA watches come with 316L stainless steel cases and bezels, 120 click unidirectional ratcheting bezels for diving, screw in case backs and crown to ensure 200 meters water resistance.

Hawaiian Lifeguard Association Watch Collection

In addition, the watches have extremely reliable Japanese quartz movements, highly scratch resistant K1 glass crystals, and comfortable genuine NBR rubber straps with patterned back for ventilation.

A percentage of the proceeds of every watch sale will be given back to the Hawaiian Lifeguard Association to support the great work done daily in the “spirit of aloha” by this outstanding organization to help ensure public safety.

The Hawaiian Lifeguard theme colors of yellow and red (the same colors of Hawaiian royalty) symbolize the line between caution and danger, and can be seen as accents on the watches.

The Hawaiian Lifeguard Association Watches are now available for purchase on Watches.com. Suggested retail price is $250.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m Limited Edition Model BN0225-04L

CITIZEN’s new limited edition PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m watch is a tribute to the endangered whale shark. This new model is a limited-edition of 5,000 pieces worldwide. A portion of the sales revenue from this model will go to support the marine conservation activities of international NGO Conservation International (CI).

The design of this model was inspired by whale sharks that can be found in plankton-rich, temperate seas near the equator. The dial and bezel feature a beautiful deep blue color evoking the ocean, and the pattern on the dial is inspired by the unique spot patterns on each whale shark’s back.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m Limited Edition Model BN0225-04L

The case design is inspired by the iconic 1982 Professional Diver which had the highest depth rating in the world – pressure resistance up to 1,300 meters – at the time of its release. The lug-less case silhouette, the four bezel guards, and the large indentations on the rotating bezel give the watch a bold, distinctive look.

The new PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m also features a sandblasted finish to recreate the distinctive rugged look of the original model. The massive 45.8mm diameter case is made from Super Titanium™ finished with CITIZEN’s proprietary Duratect MRK and Duratect DLC surface hardening technology, making it resistant to scuffs and scratches.

The bold hands and indices also ensure superior visibility. This light-powered Eco-Drive watch does not require regular battery replacement. An ISO compliant diver’s watch to 200 meters, it features an embossed whale shark silhouette on the case back.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Models

In 2020, to mark the 15th anniversary of its most robust and distinctive collection, the BALL Watch Company launched the Engineer Hydrocarbon Original watch with a black dial and matching bezel. The year 2021 witnessed the addition of new versions featuring blue or green dial with matching bezels.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

The Engineer Hydrocarbon Original’s unidirectional bezel is made of blue or green sapphire and is graduated so that the diver can measure their dive time accurately and adjust their decompression stops in complete safety. For optimum handling of these specific diving functions, the bezel features special indents that allow it to be used with bare hands or with diving gloves.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with blue dial and blue sapphire bezel

Water-resistant to 200 m/660 ft, this model is one of the few to feature micro tubes of H₃ gas inside the sapphire bezel. The brand’s iconic tubes can also be found on the hands and, for the first time ever, under the dial, allowing for unrivalled luminosity in the dark. This cutting-edge Swiss technology does not require an external charging source and consists of glass microcapsules filled with gas. These are up to 100 times brighter than the Super LumiNova paint usually used in the watchmaking industry.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with blue dial and blue sapphire bezel

Powered by the COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) certified automatic calibre BALL RR1102-CSL, the Engineer Hydrocarbon Original features hour, minute, central seconds, day and date functions.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

An already robust piece of equipment, this particularly resistant timepiece is complete with the patented Amortiser® shockproof system. Inside the movement itself, the SpringLOCK® and SpringSEAL® systems ensure continued accuracy in the event of shocks to the piece.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

Faithful to the specifications of the Hydrocarbon collection, the crown is equipped with a protection system consisting of a valve covering it, so as to ensure that it is securely screwed-in and inaccessible when diving. To ensure its superior reliability, this model is resistant to shocks of up to 7,500 G and anti-magnetic to 80,000 A/m thanks to the mu-metal shielding.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Model with green dial and green sapphire bezel

Mumetal is an alloy of nickel, iron, copper and molybdenum with very high magnetic permeability, which enables it to attract and deflect static or low frequency magnetic field lines, against which other methods of attenuation are relatively ineffective.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, New Models

Originally designed for submarine exploration and diving, the Original is equally at home in the water and on dry land. This 43 mm steel watch is not only versatile but suitable for adventurers and explorers, as well as more urban and conventional individuals.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST Ceramic

First launched in 2011, the Ball Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST is a professional-grade deep-diving instrument.

Undeniably tough and equipped with the necessary diving features, the watch has been subtly redesigned to meet new standards. The new generation model in titanium features BALL’s patented automatic helium release valve directly integrated into the crown, while its ultra-tough monobloc titanium case remains untouched and unrivalled.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST Ceramic diving watch with black dial and black bezel

The case is made of a single block of solid titanium to reduce potential interfaces and thus effects of water pressure. Titanium not only offers extreme corrosion resistance in water, but also outstanding everyday durability and strength, capable of withstanding and absorbing intense impact.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST Ceramic diving watch with black dial and green bezel

The Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST is water resistant up to 1000m/3300ft. The strong crown seals have contributed to avoid any entry of water when it is maintained in the screwed-in position. And in order to safely eliminate the pressure from the watch on the way back to the surface and avoid any damage, a patented automatic helium release valve has been incorporated directly into the crown.

The generously proportioned titanium case as well as the wide dial opening and its streamlined design also enable immediate and clear reading of the timepiece’s indications, another essential feature of any diving watch.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST Ceramic diving watch with green bezel and green dial

The markings on the rotating bezel allow the diver to accurately monitor the immersion time as well as decompression stops. The bezel has been designed to be easily gripped even with gloves on and its unidirectional rotation is an additional source of safety in the event of its accidental movement while in the water.

For the first time in ceramic, it is available in black or in dark green. Virtually scratchproof, the ceramic can withstand daily knocks and the harshest conditions, while its resistance to ultra-violet rays ensures long lasting color.

To allow instant and reliable visibility in every situation, the dial and the hands feature wider H₃ gas tubes in green and yellow colors, some of the brightest tones that glow in the dark.

BALL Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST Ceramic

The tapered stainless steel and titanium bracelet, with the BALL patented folding buckle and extension system, means the watch can be easily and safely worn on the wrist even over a diving suit. The Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST has a guaranteed shock resistance of up to 7,500Gs and an antimagnetic endurance of an intensity of up to 4,800A/m.

The 42mm diameter case houses an automatic chronometer certified caliber BALL RR1101-C. The Ball Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST displays hours, minutes, sweep seconds and date.

ArtyA Diver Spritz

ArtyA presents Diver Spritz, the world’s first full orange sapphire recreational diving watch.

With this first colored piece intended for recreational scuba diving, ArtyA wished to perpetuate its tradition of uniqueness and originality to its expertise in sapphire crystal.

This watch has a Lab-created synthetic orange sapphire case. With transparency and sensational reflections, it is a colorful and luminous case to be admired on the seabed. With its guaranteed 50 meters of waterproofness, it becomes legitimately the world’s first orange colored sapphire crystal dive watch.

The case is incredibly scratch proof because of the remarkable hardness of sapphires – 9 on the Moh’s scale, the hardest mineral, after diamond.

ArtyA Diver Spritz diving watch with orange sapphire crystal

The crystallization process for making colored sapphire is very slow. Generally, it takes 40 days to have a small orange sapphire bar of only 20 kg made. The orange sapphire is commonly used for high-tech laser or military equipment, only a few very powerful companies with large investments produce it.

Beating inside the watch, the exclusive ArtyA movement uses various finishing treatments such as Rose Gold, NAC and Côte de Genève in order to maximize the beauty when the light is reflected on it.

Limited to two pieces, the ArtyA full orange sapphire diving watch is available with an aventurine dial.

UNIMATIC U1S-MB and U2S-MB Limited Editions

Italian watch brand UNIMATIC presents U1S-MB and U2S-MB models, the newest addition to the brand’s Special Editions, featuring the Sellita SW200 movement.

UNIMATIC U1S-MB is a diving watch where as model U2S-MB is a field watch. Limited to 500 pieces each, both models are water resistant up to 300 meters. Every single watch is numbered and tested for accuracy and water resistance.

UNIMATIC U1S-MB and U2S-MB Limited Editions

U1S-MB features a 41.5 mm-wide rotating bezel and an 8 mm crown, whose size eases the task of setting the time. The slimness of the watch makes it comfortable on the wrist, just like its field watch twin U2S-MB, whose diameter is slightly narrower, featuring a 38mm mono-block case.

UNIMATIC U1S-MB and U2S-MB Limited Editions

While U1S-MB and U2S-MB are equipped with the same technical characteristics as their ancestors, their salient trait and major novelty is the Mocha Brown colour of the dial and of the straps.

UNIMATIC U1S-MB and U2S-MB Limited Editions

In fact, both models come with a Mocha Brown suede strap and a matching spare NATO strap, which can be easily exchanged thanks to the watches’ drilled lugs. The watches also feature Super-LumiNova® Old Radium tinted indexes, making them the first completely brown UNIMATIC time-pieces.

UNIMATIC U1S-MB and U2S-MB Limited Editions

The PuReSteel used in the Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic Calanda is sourced from dismantled maritime carriers. A tribute to Switzerland, the Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic Calanda takes on the imagery of the first ship to have ever flown the Swiss flag, dismantled in 1953.

Calanda was a cargo ship built in 1913, which flew under Switzerland’s flag from April 9th, 1941. It was the very first ship to be recorded on the Swiss Boat Register, assigned Basel as its home and registration port.

Evocative of the rounded curves of a porthole, the Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic Calanda’s recycled stainless steel 42 mm case is polished with a satin finish to the same high standards as a traditional stainless steel case.

The unidirectional rotating notched bezel is made from traditional stainless steel with a brushed finish and a 60-minute scale, often used to time immersion and increments. The central hour and minute hands embedded with vintage beige luminescent matter count down the time, complete with a seconds hand with a red triangle tip – the Alpina logo.

Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic Calanda Limited Edition

A matte black dial encircles the whole, studded with applied indexes with the same vintage beige luminescent detailing, and a date window at three o’clock. The Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic Calanda is water-resistant up to 300 metres thanks to its full screw-in case back and crown.

The steel case back is embellished with the Seastrong collection’s hallmark motif: Alpina’s beloved mountain peaks, layered under a trident in a nod to the watch’s deep-sea personality. With its AL-525 automatic movement, the Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic Calanda boasts 38 hours of power reserve.

Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic Calanda Limited Edition

In line with the company’s eco-friendly policy, the new Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic Calanda watch sits atop a recycled plastic (PET) wristband in harmonious grey and black.

Each watch comes in a case entirely made from recycled plastic, alongside a single-page warranty and a certificate of authenticity printed on FSC Recycled-certified paper, thereby cutting back on the amount of paper and ink used.

The user guide, meanwhile, has gone paperless, and is available in digital format via a QR code printed on the box’s inner packaging, here too made from recycled plastic bottles (rPET).

Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage – New Model with Green Dial and Matching Rubber Strap

Alpina has released a new version of its Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage watch. This 42mm model takes inspiration from the 10 Seastrong, the brand’s very first Super Compressor.

One of the Maison’s most iconic timepieces, the Super Compressor 10 Seastrong divers watch was first introduced in 1969. Water-resistant up to 200 metres, it was anti magnetic and featured Super Compressor trademark casing: two crowns, one of which controls the internal rotating bezel, used to measure the passing of time on a scale of one to 60 minutes. In 2016, Alpina launched its Seastrong Diver Heritage range in a tribute to the historical design.

For the new version released in 2022, Alpina opted for a green color dial inspired by the underwater life and biodiversity. A glossy, radiant finish scatters light evenly across the face in a glow reminiscent of sunshine reflecting off the surface of the water.

Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage - New Model with Green Dial and Matching Rubber Strap

This mirror-shine effect serves to further enhance the different shades of green used while improving clarity of the hour and minute hands. Alpina also included a trio of large hands to ensure the Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage is functional and genuinely usable in action. Each of the three hands is luminous, and the minute hand is topped with a generous arrow pointing up to indices that glow just as brightly.

Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage - New Model with Green Dial and Matching Rubber Strap

Immersion times are calculated using the Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage’s black bi-directional rehaut, which can be adjusted using the upper crown positioned at the two o’clock mark. The timer can be set for dives for up to 60 minutes. Positioned opposite the minute hand, it instantly counts time spent under water, or any other time span divers may like to work with, such as remaining oxygen time or decompression limits.

Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage - New Model with Green Dial and Matching Rubber Strap

The second crown is set above the four o’clock mark and can be used to change the time. These two screw-down crowns prevent any mishaps when handling the watch once the time and rehaut have been set.

Polished and brushed on the sides, the 42 mm steel case has a water-resistant up to 300 metres. The steel caseback is engraved with Alpina’s beloved Alps and embellished with a trident.

Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage - New Model with Green Dial and Matching Rubber Strap

Equipped with a Self-winding with a high frequency of 28’800 alt. /h, the Seastrong Diver 300 Heritage watch has a power reserve of 38 hours.

The watch comes with a new green rubber strap that is sand-, sea salt- and corrosion-resistant.

Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date

Montblanc’s new sports diving watch in steel comes with an eye-catching “frozen” dial and an interchangeable and adjustable tapered bracelet.

Available in three dial themes, the 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date dive watch draws inspiration from the glacial lakes of the Mont-Blanc Massif.

Located in Chamonix Valley, the Mer de Glace (Sea of Ice) is the largest glacier in France. The dial of each 1858 Iced Sea watch evokes texture of the glacial ice with its interlocking network of crystals that have been frozen in time for millennia.

Due to the thinness of dial (0.5 mm), it was very challenging to create the illusion of looking into the depth of a glacier. After several trials, the Maison found a technical solution to create an impression of genuine depth and luminosity. The dial makers employed an almost-forgotten ancestral technique called gratté boisé as the base.

Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date

This timepiece includes the addition of an interchangeable v-shaped stainless-steel bracelet which can be quickly and easily switched for a rubber strap without the need to return to the boutique or the use of any tools. Not only is the bracelet interchangeable, but it is also adjustable on the wrist, so each owner can find their perfect fit, especially when wearing it over a wet suit.

Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date

The stainless-steel bracelet also comes with an attractive taper of 20 – 16mm and is secured by a double deployant buckle. To find tapered bracelets at this price point is quite rare due to the fact that they are more complicated and expensive to manufacture, but it makes all the difference as they bring an element of character and elegance to the Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date. Stainless steel and rubber were also the materials of choice thanks to their durability in a salty water environment.

The Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date is a certified diving timing instrument, conforming to the ISO 6425 norm. In addition to this important safety certification, each timepiece has undergone the Montblanc Laboratory 500 Hour Test to ensure that it is shock, magnetic, temperature, and water-resistant (30 bar) and that its fasteners are reinforced for maximum security.

Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date

Montblanc has also incorporated white Super-Luminova® on the hands, indexes, and dot at 12 o’clock, which all glow in a luminescent shade in low light, keeping with the glacial theme.

Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date with Blue Glacial Pattern Dial

The Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date comes with three different dial colours – blue, green, and black – that represent different colours of glacial ice.

Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date

Blue ice can be found in the Mont-Blanc’s Sea of Ice and is created by the inclusion of air bubbles in the ice, while green ice is found in Antarctica and is the result of the presence of microscopic snow algae blooms.

Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date with Black Glacial Pattern Dial

Black ice occurs when the ice has no inclusions or air bubbles, therefore absorbing enough light to appear black. It can also be turned black by deposits of volcanic ash in its structure; examples of which can be seen in the Polar Regions.

Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date

Each timepiece comes in a 41mm stainless steel case with a bicolor ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel and a case back featuring a 3D relief engraving of an iceberg and a scuba diver exploring the glacial waters below. This image is achieved using an engraving technique that is rarely seen on such a small surface.

The engraving begins with the metal being structured by laser to create a 3D relief image that provides depth and realism.

The collection is powered by an automatic movement and indicates the hours, minutes, seconds, and a date at three o’clock. The timepiece also comes with a recycled and recyclable watch pouch.

The retail price of Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date in US is $2,975/- for the model with rubber strap and $3,190/- with stainless steel bracelet.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20th Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

2022 marks 20 years of Mido’s passion for architecture. The third creation of an anniversary series encompassing five models, the Ocean Star Inspired By Architecture reliably accompanies the most remarkable expeditions at sea, just like the monument that inspired it – the Europa Point Lighthouse, located in the Strait of Gibraltar.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

Each watch from the limited series of 1,841 timepieces – chosen to commemorate the year the monument engraved on its case back was built – is delivered in a special dedicated presentation box, accompanied by a medallion.

Created in 2002, the All Dial collection was the first to evoke one of ancient Rome’s most famous monuments in its design: the immense Colosseum amphitheatre. Ever since, the art of architecture has been written into the creative DNA of Mido and has influenced all of its collections. Just as the Europa Point Lighthouse acts as a landmark on the Mediterranean Sea, the high-performance, reliable Ocean Star also supports seafarers in their quests.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

The unidirectional rotating bezel with a blue aluminium ring tops the dial in a matching ‘velvet’ finish. The shape of the index at 12 o’clock, adorned with a touch of red, recalls the silhouette of the lighthouse which was built to guide men embarking on new maritime conquests. The Super-LumiNova® dot, meanwhile, evokes the light that safely guides them.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

The day and date indications can be read off in an aperture at 3 o’clock. To ensure a flawless display, even underwater and at night, the bezel, indexes and hands are adorned with white Super-LumiNova®.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

The varnished red tip of the seconds hand, enables the wearer to accurately track how much time has elapsed. The same red has been chosen for the stitching adorning the blue fabric strap with rolled edges, in a subtle nod to the lighthouse’s characteristic red stripe.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

The new Ocean Star Inspired By Architecture is powered by the Caliber 80, a next-generation automatic mechanical movement that has been carefully decorated according to watchmaking tradition. It offers up to 80 hours of autonomy.
The look of this anniversary Ocean Star is highlighted by the satin-finished steel chosen for its round 42.5 mm diameter case.

Mido Ocean Star – Inspired By Architecture 20TH Anniversary Limited Edition, Reference M026.430.17.041.01

Equipped with a screwed case back (five screws) and a screwed crown, this sports watch is water-resistant up to a pressure of 20 bar (200 m/660 ft). A representation of the Europa Point Lighthouse is engraved on the steel case back and similarly adorns the commemorative medallion that is delivered with this limited edition.

Ulysse Nardin The Ocean Race Diver Limited Edition

Ulysse Nardin, the official partner of The Ocean Race has created a new sophisticated and environment friendly diving watch using recycled fishing nets. This new timepiece follows the foot steps of the brand’s two innovative concepts: R-STRAP and DIVER NET.

In September 2020, Ulysse Nardin introduced the R-STRAP wrist strap which is made entirely from recycled fishing nets and can be used with MARINE, DIVER and FREAK X watches. Then in November 2020, the brand announced DIVER NET, an experimental concept watch, each element of which was designed for durability, to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

Launched in June 2022, the Ocean Race Diver watch made from recycled fishing nets is the first sustainable luxury watch to be put on the market. It is offered in a limited edition of 200 pieces.

Ulysse Nardin The Ocean Race Diver Limited Edition

It confirms the global trend of the luxury sector towards upcycling, already adopted by the high fashion industry. The goal is to raise awareness by creating “new from old” and regenerating materials, especially plastic. Ulysse Nardin is conclusively making the change towards the circular economy with this movement of regeneration of nets.

Thanks to the work of the French start-up FIL&FAB, the brand thus puts the spotlight on a “less noble” material enhanced by a “100% Manufacture” watchmaker’s approach, making the object as desirable as if it were designed in a more conventional material than polyamide.

Ulysse Nardin The Ocean Race Diver Limited Edition

Ulysse Nardin’s designers meticulously decorated the watch, water-resistant up to 300m, with touches of bright green, a reflection of nature. These are everywhere: from the stitching on the strap to the markers and bezel, including the “double X” signature of the dial, the power reserve indicator at mid day, the small seconds hand at 6 o’ clock, the Ulysse Nardin logo etched on to the crown, the crown protector, and the individual plate.

A combination of white, gray and black completes the color palette of the watch, which beats to the rhythm of the Manufacture’s iconic movement, the UN-118, with its silicium technology.

The components of this movement are 95% sourced with in a 30km radius of the Manufacture, half of them coming from recycling channels (recycled steel and brass in particular: 100% of Ulysse Nardin movements make use of recycled brass).

The dial is more toned down than the concept version of the DIVER NET. The white U and N initials in extra-large capital letters have disappeared to make way for a neutral textured anthracite (ruthenium) surface treatment. The iconic double X is still in its place, stamped on the dial with its half-matt half-satin finish.

Ulysse Nardin The Ocean Race Diver Limited Edition

On the case back, the sapphire crystal is embellished with a white transfer of the logo of the brand’s partner, The Ocean Race.
The unidirectional bezel is entirely decorated with Carbonium® (Lavoisier Composites). Carbonium® is made of the same fibers that are used for the fuselage and wings of the latest-generation aircrafts.

The manufacture of Carbonium® has a 40% lower environmental impact than other carbon composites, since it makes use of the off cuts of aircraft parts. Created using a complex process under high pressure at high temperature, Carbonium® is a high-performance material that reveals the inner beauty of the organic pattern formed by carbon fibers that have a diameter of only 7µm.

In 2019 Ulysse Nardin was the first watchmaking brand to use this new material in a watch. Its strength-to-lightness ratio is incomparable and its superb marbling effect makes each case an absolutely unique piece.

Ulysse Nardin The Ocean Race Diver Limited Edition

The side-case and case-back of the 44mm Ocean Race Diver are the result of an interesting combination of materials: 40% Carbonium® (Lavoisier Composites) and 60% polyamide recycled from fishing nets, Nylo® (FIL&FAB).

Ulysse Nardin has placed its trust in young Breton designers who have created the very first fishing net recycling business in France. FIL&FAB, a start-up in the field of industrial design and transition, recovers disused nets in French fishing ports and recycles them in the form of polyamide granules called Nylo®.

Ulysse Nardin has selected a type of recycled steel for certain watch case components, at least 80% recycled where the case back is concerned. The renowned Austrian steel works of Voestalpine Boehler, a supplier of the brand, has embarked on a process of comprehensive sustainable transformation and is actively focusing its efforts on supplying its watchmaking customers with very high-quality steel, guaranteed recycled and soon to be guaranteed upcycled.

Thus, the steel that adorns part of the Ocean Race Diver, 80 to 85% recycled, comes from an automotive industry steel recycling channel.

Ulysse Nardin The Ocean Race Diver Limited Edition

The strap with scratch closing is also fully recycled from fishing nets, transformed into reels of yarn by the French company JTTI.

The Ulysse Nardin Ocean Race Diver comes in an original pack: a water-resistant R-PET pouch slipped into a dry bag recycled from the sea by Helly Hansen, a brand that is also a partner of the round-the-world race as the official clothing supplier.

The suggested retail price of The Ocean Race Diver watch is CHF 10,900.

A composite based on carbon fiber, it encompasses a specific collection of properties—lighter than titanium, high resistance to corrosion, to scratching—that makes it feel weightless on the wrist while possessing remarkable strength. Its inherent variegated black coloring ensures that no two cases will be identical. A titanium DLC crown in a similar black hue harmonizes with the Carbotech construction.

Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro Carbotech™ Blu Abisso PAM01232

In keeping with the Submersible collection’s legacy of underwater exploration, the dial and accompanying coordinating straps are the color of the deep undersea blue.

The Submersible QuarantaQuattro with a steel case and black dial (PAM01229) endows the model with a sharp, compelling presence, heightened by the contrasting white Super-LumiNova™ that enhances its hands, dots and indices. Straps in black rubber and dark gray fabric strengthen the watch’s dramatic impression.

Meanwhile, a brilliant white dial with straps in a supremely versatile military green hue distinguishes the Submersible QuarantaQuattro Bianco (PAM01226).

All the timepieces are characterized by the consistent Panerai’s commitment to encouraging environmentally conscious practices: the first rubber strap is made from 30% of recycled materials while, like all the straps from the Submerisble QuarantaQuattro offering, the second one is composed of 68% recycled fabric material.

A tool to allow interchangeability of the straps and a screwdriver for removing the buckle also accompany the Submersible QuarantaQuattro and the Submersible QuarantaQuattro Bianco watches.

Panerai presents Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel™, a series of diving watches certifying the brand’s commitment towards a sustainable future, including reducing waste and promoting reuse of materials.

The Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel™ maintains the brand’s established design codes and technical finesse.

72g of the watch is made of recycled materials, corresponding to 52% of the total weight of the watch (that is 137g). An engraving on the crown protection device and inscription on the dial indicate the presence of eSteel™.

Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel

The brand is now offering three versions of the 44mm Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel™ watch: Deep blue, gray and green.

Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel

Finished in Deep blue, gray or green, the dial has a polished finish and color gradient that steadily deepens from top to bottom. The watch is mounted with a unidirectional bezel and the color of polished ceramic bezel-insert matches with that of the dial.

Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel

The P.900 is an automatic caliber that is only 4.2mm thick and supports a date indication and three-day power reserve. The Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel™ is water-resistant to 30 bar (approximately 300 meters).

Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel

Two straps are included with each watch, both in the same color as their companion dial. The first strap is composed of fabric made recycled PET, while the second strap is made from recycled rubber. A tool that allows interchangeability of the straps and a screwdriver for removing the buckle also accompanies every watch.

Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel watch

The Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel™ series is available exclusively in Panerai boutiques and online at panerai.com.

eSteel™ has the same properties as conventional steel, including identical chemical behavior, physical structure and resistance to corrosion, making the metal a natural companion for the iconic Submersible collection of diving watches.

Angelus U53 “Khaki Green” Limited Edition

Incorporating the complex tourbillon mechanism and a hand-wound mechanical skeleton caliber, the Angelus U53 is a versatile, masculine, and ultra-modern timepiece.

This 25-piece limited series spotlights an asymmetrical design with khaki green theme. It also meets all the criteria for watches intended for underwater use.

Angelus U53 watch

The khaki shade is visible on the U53’s rotating flange, strap and hands – a bold statement for a sports watch which also works effortlessly in more formal settings, offering a casual, chic look.

Made of grade 5 titanium, the 46 mm diameter case is water-resistant to 300 metres. The 60 minute-graduated rotating flange only turns anticlockwise. Its hands and indices are luminescent. It is equipped with a helium valve, to allow saturation diving. The Angelus U53 is also resistant to magnetic fields and scratching. Grade 5 titanium is a light, comfortable metal which is very well tolerated by the skin even in high moisture conditions yet is hard enough to withstand most scratches.

Angelus U53 watch with green nato strap

At 9 o’clock, the watch incorporates the helium valve. The screw-down crown at 2 o’clock controls the rotating flange. A second screw-down crown located at 4 o’clock allows for winding and setting the time.

Angelus U53 watch with lume

The outer bezel boasts a powerful design. Its deep indents, in a distinctive shark fin design, immediately draw the eye; the motif is repeated on the flange, also in green and graduated with Arabic numerals.

Angelus U53 limited edition watch

U53 showcases its movement in spectacular fashion. The Angelus A-300 is a hand-wound mechanical skeleton calibre characterised by its large bridges. The openwork in the centre specifically evokes the design of Angelus’ calibres.

Angelus U53 watch with khaki green rubber strap

The other signature feature is the modern and highly technical Tourbillon Volant Une Minute complication. The A-300 movement also stands out with slightly asymmetric placement of all its vital components: the barrel at 1 o’clock, winding at 4 o’clock, tourbillon at 6.30, small seconds at 9.30. These unusual locations are dictated by the design of the U53.

This diving watch is mounted on a rubber strap and complimentary hand-stitched.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968

Swiss watchmaker Certina presents DS Chronograph Automatic 1968, a brand new timepiece inspired by a model from the 1960s.

Although boasting the 1960s design, its heart beats to the rhythm of a modern automatic movement with a silicon balance spring. The cushion-shaped case makes it a stylish accessory, while its chronograph functionality, water resistance up to 20 bar (200 meters) and the unidirectional rotating bezel testify to genuine sportiness.

 Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968

Introduced at the end of the 1960s the Certina DS Argonaut caused a sensation with its striking case and robust workmanship. Inspired by this model, the Swiss watchmaker has developed a worthy successor that would cut a fine figure in any tale of mythical heroes.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 with black PVD case

The DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 is presented in a cushion-shaped stainless steel case (43.5 mm x 43.5 mm) with a black PVD surface. Sapphire crystal on the front and back of the watch provide optimal clarity and legibility.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 with black PVD case

A round sapphire ring, fitted with a black/white scale printed from beneath, lends visual depth to the unidirectional rotating bezel. And thanks to their Super-LumiNova® coating, the sharply angled hands and indexes stand out clearly against the black dial even in the dark.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 Stainless steel case with black PVD coating, black dial, leather strap

An elegant vintage style is only one of the many facets of the new DS Chronograph Automatic 1968. Another is its sporty character, underscored, for example, by the 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and complemented by the central stop seconds and a small seconds at 9 o’clock.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 Stainless steel case with black PVD coating, black dial, leather strap

The striking screw-down crown and water resistance up to 20 bar (200 m) contribute to enhanced robustness. The watch is driven by the ETA A05.H31 automatic (self-winding) movement with a 60-hour power reserve. It is equipped with a silicon balance spring whose innovative material protects it against magnetic fields, changes in temperature and shocks.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 Stainless steel case with black PVD coating, black dial, leather strap

The matt black leather strap with white decorative stitching – easily exchanged thanks to the Certina quick-change system – offers additional safety and comfort.

Certina DS Chronograph Automatic 1968 Stainless steel case, black dial with orange elements, striped NATO strap

Along with the black version, a stainless steel edition with orange accents on the dial and a black and white striped NATO strap made from recycled #tide ocean material® is also available.

Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver

Rado presents the new Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver, an ISO 6425 certified diving timepiece equipped with a new generation self-winding movement. Its stunning high-tech ceramic monobloc case is scratch-resistant, hypo-allergenic and practically invulnerable.

This much-awaited model, available in six equally impressive variants, brings together the latest in high-tech ceramic production technics and the brand’s most innovative watchmaking. The 43 mm timepiece houses a latest-generation automatic movement, NivachronTM anti-magnetic hairspring and 80 hours of power reserve.

This timepiece boasts emblematic Captain Cook features such as the date window at 3 o’clock with red numbers and the box-shaped glass, now in extremely scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both faces.

Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver

Large, highly-legible hour, minute and second hands are treated with Super-LumiNova for excellent viewing in low-light conditions, along with the main markers and bezel numerals. The new model features ISO 6425 certification, a first for Rado, largely surpassed thanks to its 300-meter water resistance.

Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver

Rooted in nature but developed by keen human innovation, Rado high-tech ceramic is extremely hard but light, lovely to touch, and carries its visible colour right into the core, making it extraordinarily scratch-resistant. The use of a monobloc case adds to the structural stability of the timepiece while keeping its outer dimensions and weight lower, for greater comfort.

Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic DIVER

Visually, well-known Captain Cook features are instantly recognizable: the bold, easy-grip bezel with circular-brushed high-tech ceramic insert, engraved numbers and markers, as well as a triangle in white Super-LumiNova at the 60-min. position.

Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic DIVER

The circular-brushed titanium press-fit case back with two seahorses adds an echo of early Sixties models and an unequivocal reminder of the water resistance, confirmed by the ISO 6425 certification granted to these exceptional timepieces. Inside, the Rado 25-jewel, three-hand R763 automatic movement exceeds standard accuracy test requirements by a full five points.
