Omega Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer

Sporting the best elements of the Moonwatch but with the benefit of a slimmer profile, the Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer fits perfectly as a quintessential motorsports watch.  Driven by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer 9900, certified by METAS at the industry’s highest standard, this beautiful piece features a silicon balance spring and a co-axial escapement and is antimagnetic to 15,000 Gauss. With its 44.25mm stainless steel case with a black ceramic bezel, the Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer with its vintage and motorsport-inspired minute track cuts a distinctive figure on any wrist especially with variations like this ‘steel on steel’ white on black number seen here.

Zenith Defy Classic

With its simple time and date layout, the Zenith Defy Classic is a classic and stylish piece that will captivate many. But Zenith has rather cleverly delivered two dial versions to this stunner – one with a solid blue sunray and the other an openworked model with a five-sided star. Both however are equally captivating, sporting a 41mm titanium case, along with rhodium-plated, faceted, Super-LumiNova-coated hands and hour indices and a date indication. Powered by an automatic, skeletonized Elite 670 caliber, Zenith has rolled out several different executions of the Defy Classic with strap options that include titanium, black rubber and blue alligator leather for a complete match of styles.

Bremont U-2/51 Jet

Rather fittingly, the Bremont U-2/51 Jet will make its debut in New York, the same month it makes its big screen bow in Marvel/Sony Pictures’ Venom superhero actioner starring Tom Hardy. The actor sports the Bremont piece in the film, which is both dark and gritty, much like the titular anti-hero. The latest addition to the Bremont U-2 range, the U-2/51 Jet draws inspiration from the British Royal Air Force’s (RAF) night bombing squadron, which explains its stunning stealth-like design. The 43mm timepiece is constructed out of DLC-coated steel and is equipped with a ‘Roto-Click’ interior rotating bezel and is powered by the Bremont Caliber BE-36AE COSC-certified movement, which can be viewed on the caseback.

Montblanc 1858 Monopusher Chronograph

One of the latest additions to the recent 1858 collection, this particular edition of the Montblanc 1858 Monopusher Chronograph carries a green motif that’s limited to just 100 pieces. The green dial and matching green alligator leather strap has added a dash of sophistication and colour to the design of the 1858 Monopusher Chronograph. The highly-coveted model features a slim 40mm stainless steel case with curved lugs, a vintage-style fluted crown and a rectangular pusher at 2 o’clock.  Beneath the bi-compax dial, which features a tachymeter scale, lays the heart of this timepiece – Montblanc’s Caliber MB13.21, which tributes the historical Minerva monopusher chronograph caliber 13.20 launched in 1920.

Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic COSC

Don’t let the simple classic design fool you, because this particular piece just so happens to be the most technologically-advanced model Baume & Mercier has produced thus far. And best-of-all, it arrives at a price point that won’t break your wallet. Housed within the 40mm steel case beats the BM12-1975A calibre movement, which is equipped with COSC-rated accuracy, anti-magnetism up to 1,500 gauss and a 120-hour power reserve. This is arguably this model’s best asset, but buyers will also finds the uncluttered sensible design of the timepiece – clean white dial with a crosshair with riveted indexes and Rhodium-plated hands matched with a black alligator strap –equally desirable as well.
