Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope

More than a timekeeper, the Speedmaster Chronoscope also measures speed based on distance (tachymeter), distance based on sound (telemeter), and a human heartbeat (pulsometer). Its design harks back to Omega's chronographs in the 1940s but the technology is resolutely contemporary complete with a Co-Axial movement decorated with Geneva waves in arabesque. It also boasts twin barrels for above average power reserve, and they are coated in diamond-like-carbon for durability. Available in stainless steel and bronze gold.

IWC Schaffhausen Pilot’s Watch Automatic Edition “Laureus Sport for Good”

For its 15th special edition watch for Laureus Sport for Good, IWC Schaffhausen has chosen, for the first time, a blue ceramic case. As always, the caseback is engraved with the winning drawing of a competition that the Swiss manufacture organises every year within all the programmes supported by Laureus Sport for Good. This year, the chosen design belongs to Melissa Mejía Castilla, 12, from Colombia, who called her work Living in Peace. Limited to 750 pieces, it's powered by the in-house 32111 calibre with an impressive power reserve of five days.

Grand Seiko Heritage Collection 140th Anniversary Limited Edition

The heart of this limited edition is Caliber 9RA2, a slimmer version of Seiko's very own Spring Drive movement with 5-day power reserve. The unique thing about Spring Drive is that it's a mechanical movement but equipped with an electronic regulator to deliver an improved level of precision, in this case, ±10 seconds per month accuracy.

The design bears the elegant subtlety of a well-made Japanese object—a rose gold case framing a brown dial bearing a wood grain pattern, and a movement decorated with Shinshu Frost Finish that recalls winter frost.
