BLANCPAIN FIFTY FATHOMS TITANIUM

Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms timepiece enjoys the distinction of being the first modern diver’s watch, making it an instant hit among professional divers and watch enthusiasts. Sixty-six years later, the watch still boasts its main original technical and aesthetic characteristics, updated with a satin-brushed titanium case that pairs well with its signature ebony-black color.

ZENITH DEFY EL PRIMERO 21 CARBON

Zenith’s DEFY El Primero 21 Carbon is a visually arresting timepiece and one look is not enough to take in all the elements. The dial alone is made up of a combination of straight lines and angles, revealing the architecture of the openworked movement. The instrument’s black treatment also allows for the gleaming edges of the innovatory skeleton movement to shine through the dark, subtly calling out to watch aficionados that place importance on both form and function.

LONGINES HYDROCONQUEST

Longines takes the HydroConquest to new heights with the launch of a model that is made entirely from black ceramic – a highly technical and scratch-resistant material that is perfectly suited for the timepiece’s sporty outlook. Where other features are concerned, the HydroConquest boasts water resistance of up to 300 meters, a unidirectional bezel, screw-in crown, and a double security-folding clasp. Another feature we enjoy are the large numbers and the radiance of the white Super-LumiNova coated indexes and hands against the deep black dial.

HAMILTON KHAKI FIELD MURPH AUTO

Film buffs and Hamilton enthusiasts who enjoyed the 2014 film “Interstellar” would have definitely noticed this timepiece, and now, the watch brand has released a faithful recreation of it – the Khaki Field Murph Auto, named after actress Jessica Chastain’s character. The stylish instrument features a three-hand movement with a date function, as well a power reserve of 80 hours, finished off with a stainless steel case and calf leather strap.
