  • MODERN HERITAGE By Martina Richter and Mark Bernardo | Tudor added a new bronze model to its Heritage Black Bay collection in 2016. Like its predecessors, this dive watch dips into its history with a material that appeals to contemporary tastes..


  • COMPACT CHRONOGRAPH By Martina Richter | A bi-compax chronograph has only two subdials and can measure only relatively short intervals. But this type of display gives the watch a cleaner look. We compare models from Alpina, Bell & Ross and Union Glashütte.
  • RETRO RACER By Alexander Krupp | In 1976, TAG Heuer introduced its Monza model, named for the world-famous Italian Formula 1 racetrack. Forty years later, the Monza Calibre 17 recalls the glory days of racing while offering a great deal more than retro design.
  • MASTER OF ITS CLASS By Martina Richter | The new Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph continues Omega’s maritime legacy. It’s also the brand’s first chronograph to earn certification as a Master Chronometer. We present it here in our exclusive review.
  • WATER SPORTS LOVER By Alexander Krupp | Tutima sails the world’s oceans with the watertight M2 Seven Seas. But is this sports watch also suitable for landlubbers and stay-at-homes?
  • GENTLEMAN’S SPORT By Mark Bernardo | A week with the Jaquet Droz SW Chrono with Blue Côtes de Genève Dial


  • SEIKO’S GRAND TOUR By Roger Ruegger | A visit to Seiko’s watch studios in Shizukuishi and Shiojiri, the two watch-producing facilities within the Seiko Group responsible for the manufacturing of Grand Seikos
  • ‘ONE STEP AT A TIME’ Interview by Roger Ruegger | Four questions to Shinji Hattori, President and Chief Executive Officer of Seiko Watch Corporation, about the future of Credor, Grand Seiko, the newly launched Presage collection – and what his favorite watch is
  • FLIGHT FIGHT By Jens Koch | IWC and Breitling duel for horological supremacy in the air.
  • LUXURY WITH UTILITY By Alexander Krupp | Patek Philippe offers many complicated timepieces that have plenty of everyday utility. We present a few of them here.
  • BUILT FOR ETERNITY By Thomas Gronenthal | While Rado’s best-known watches are made of ceramic, its earlier models had plenty to offer, too, from hard-metal cases to the first service-interval display on the dial.
