Longines recently launched a new collection based on designs from military watches produced in the 1930s. The Longines Military Heritage 1938 collection consists of three watches — the 3 Hand, 24-Hour and Chronograph model — which all have a simple layout with large white Arabic numerals and a minute track that contrasts the matte black dial, and is very easy to read. Moreover, the hour and minute hands, as well as the indices, have been coated with luminous material, for excellent legibility even in low light.
This is the newest version of the Richard Mille RM 011 Automatic Flyback Chronograph “Felipe Massa.” It is now available in an ultra-light carbon composite case. It is powered be a caliber RM 011-S skeletonized automatic movement with adjustable rotor geometry. The functions include hours, minutes seconds, flyback chronograph, 60-minute countdown timer and annual calendar with date and month. The case measures 50 mm x 40 mm x 16.5 mm.
Frédérique Constant, a brand that has only been around since 1988, has quickly gained a reputation for offering some of the most affordable in-house mechanical movement equipped Swiss watches on the market. And this year at Baselworld, they added another watch to the list: the Frédérique Constant Slim Line Moonphase Manufacture.

This is the new Parmigiani Fleurier Ovale Pantographe with special telescopic hands that extend and retract as they sweep the oval shaped dial. “The hands are based on the pantograph - the instrument from which they take their name - and use the same principle of multiplying a length by a given factor to obtain movement on a larger or smaller scale.”
