12. Sinn EZM 10 Watch
While the prices are a bit different, fans of the chronograph watches from Magrette will ultimately choose the style that they like best. Be it the cleaner polished and brushed steel Regattare or the more sporty and black Moana Pacific Chronograph PVD. Magrette will produce each of them as a limited edition of 1000 pieces. Price for the Magrette Moana Pacfiic Chronograph PVD will be 5 and the Magrette Regattare Chronograph will be 8.

Bell & Ross mostly offers nice watches at an under ,000 price point. However, in the past they have dabbled with some ultra high-end pieces. This exploded during the economic boom of several years ago as Bell & Ross became a client of now erased BNB Concept with some rather impressive tourbillon and other high-complication models. While a few tourbillon-based timepieces still exist in the Bell & Ross collection, the brand is really about good looks and everyday wearing comfort at comparatively lower prices. At the same time, CEO Carlos Rosillo often thinks about the watches and images that inspire him. His WW1 (wrist watch one) mission led him to a number of classic shapes and concepts that beg for a more luxurious treatment.

Aesthetically, the white is very pleasing in the flesh, very bright with red accents highlighting certain parts of the semi-openworked dial. The dial layout itself is probably a bit more legible than the previous 'regular' edition of the same watch due to the colour. It is a very summertime watch, and at this time of year would look great with a nice polo shirt, with a linen get-up while relaxing on the deck of your yacht in St Tropez, or hanging out the side of your Bugatti Veyron as you prowl around Monaco. Of course the watch is made to be loud and proud, and that is what the brand is about, so better to embrace it! A casually styled high horology watch is not something that has been the norm up until recently, and minute repeaters in large sports watch cases are even rarer.
Some readers will note that Bremont is not exactly a household name and I would agree that you are paying less for the Bremont name than you would for some of the more recognizable brands (consider Rolex, Omega or IWC). Still a rather small company from across the pond, those that need their watch to be of a specifically renowned brand should likely look elsewhere. If you wear a watch because it speaks to you, and not simply about you, Bremont is definitely worth your consideration. With their first boutique having recently opened in London, it would seem that Bremont is still very much on the rise and many early adopters may soon by saying "I told you so" to those who doubted this small brand from England.

The new for 2012 Breguet Heritage Phases de Lune Retrograde 8860 watch is for women (in case you didn't notice). I like the woven leather strap and overall simple yet refined theme of the watch. It is also a rare "casual" ladies piece in the Breguet collection that doesn't need to be worn with an evening gown. I won't discuss it more here, but simply wanted to share the hands-on pictures of the Breguet watch. You can read more about the Breuget Heritage Phases de Lune Retrograde 8860 timepiece via my article on Centurion here.
The Sinn 857 and 857 S models are available on a range of straps, but you really want the available steel or PVD black steel bracelets. Though the silicone strap is a good choice for many sport activities. I don't think the 857 range is meant to replace the 657, but rather to add a slightly higher-end and larger alternative. I will be seriously looking at these in the near future. Price for the Sinn 857 is 1,380 - 1,585 Euros depending on the strap/bracelet, and prices for the Sinn 857 S is 1,530 - 1,815 Euros.
Call this GF watch "ol' blue eye" like I did and you are sure to gain points with the brand. They call it "magic." We can both refer to it as Royal Blue - and beautiful. While not the most technically complex new Greubel Forsey watch of 2012, this one is probably the prettiest. It is a limited edition (duh) version of their existing Tourbillon 24 Secondes watch and it took my breath away (and potentially my life savings a few times over).
