Longines Legend Diver

Taking a leaf out of their Heritage book, Longines’ new diver watches extends its range in both men’s and ladies’ models. With dials in white mother-of-pearl to brown to black, the minute track, hour markers and case shape stay true to the original design from the 1960s. The bracelets are also given a makeover, with options of a Milanese-style or coloured leather straps.

Mido Multifort Patrimony

Mido commemorates the 85th anniversary of the Multifort with a reissue of the Patrimony. Fronted by brushed sunray dials in gradated colours from blue to grey to black, the pulsometer scale, box sapphire crystal, and baton main hour hands are details that are preserved. The hour ring and minute track are charmingly divided, with complementing font type from the 30s.

Rado Captain Cook Automatic

Captain Cook has long been one of Rado’s classics, since the debut of the diving watch in 1962. Now a little louder, bigger and bolder, the Captain Cook line now comes in 42mm cases and clad in full steel bracelets or leather straps. Having been the colour trend of late, a blue dial and bezel combo is toned down with a brown leather strap.

Hamilton Intra-Matic Auto Chrono 40mm

The Panda configuration – black counters and white dial – still stands as a classic aesthetic to read time in black and white. In homage to the Chronograph A from 1968, Hamilton reissues its vintage classic with a little size tweak and now has a date aperture.
