According to the Wall Street Journal, Vianney Halter’s New Deep Space Tourbillon is the most important watch of 2013. Priced at $170,000, this watch is one of the most amazing pieces of horological creativity that I have ever seen. Check out the WSJ’s video below on a bit of a background on Vianney Halter and how he came to become one of the most creative and well respected names in the Watch Industry today.

Breitling revamps the Avenger watches, dubbed the Avenger II Collection. Some very subtle changes here, but significant nonetheless. New stenciled number bezels, and some new fonts for the Seawolf along with a brand new GMT Avenger Chronograph are just a few of the updates. Check ’em out on the Breitling website: http://www.breitling.com/en/campaigns/avenger/

THE AVENGER RAMPS UP THE POWER

As authentic instruments for professionals, the models in the Avenger line have been redesigned in a style that is even more technical, functional and sophisticated. An exceptional look for these trustworthy companions on the most extreme missions.

Absolute power. Steely muscles. Peerless performances. Extraordinary precision. The Avenger by Breitling has been designed to offer a maximum of security and reliability. A maximum of sturdiness and shock-resistance with its robust construction and its substantial lateral reinforcements. A maximum of functionality, with its large screw-locked crown and non-slip grip. A maximum of readability, with its thick glareproofed sapphire crystal and its oversized hands, numerals and hour-markers.

Breitling now gives a new face to outstanding accomplishments by redesigning the entire Avenger line in a resolutely original style. The slimmer case adopts an even more ergonomic profile. The new stencil-type numerals with their taut, dynamic lines, further strengthen the ties with aviation. The new engraved and satin-brushed bezel is adorned with integrated rider tabs. The readability is optimized by large hands and hour-markers accentuated by a luminescent coating. Titanium casebacks – bearing a conversion scale for Anglo-Saxon metric measurements – keeps the case lighter.

The new Avenger II collection comprises four models endowed with highly distinctive functions and characters. Four instruments for all manner of missions:

The Avenger II chronograph, featuring a 43 mm diameter, water resistance to 300 m (1,000 ft) and pushpiece guards screwed into the steel

The Super Avenger II chronograph, boasting an imposing 48 mm diameter and also water-resistant to 300 m (1,000 ft)

The professional super-diver model Avenger II Seawolf, water-resistant to the fabulous depth of 3,000 m (10,000 ft) and equipped with a security valve serving to equal out the differences of pressure between the inside and the outside of the case

The new Avenger II GMT, with an extremely practical and readable second timezone display in 24-hour mode, a bidirectional rotating bezel serving to read off a third time zone, as well as water resistance to 300 m (1,000 ft).

The Avenger models are available in several dial colors, with stencil-type numerals or hour-markers, on a rubber strap or on the new Professional bracelet with redesigned links. They are all equipped with mechanical selfwinding movements chronometer-certified by the COSC, the highest industry benchmark in terms of precision and reliability – and the only one based on an international norm.

Avenger: power in action.

A few new models from everyone’s favourite German Tool Watch company, Sinn. I particularly like the two Mission Timers, more so the 45mm EZM14, due to the size. Interestingly, the 41mm EZM15, has a deeper water resistance down to 2000m, double what the EZM14 has. The Sinn T1 EZM 14 is probably my favourite new watch to come out of the Sinn shop in quite a few years. Be sure to visit the Sinn site links to see multiple angles of all the watches.

Zenith has expanded their Pilot Montre d’Aéronef (Which is French for “onboard watch”) line at Baselworld 2013 this year with five new models. Very cool pieces from Zenith that give Pilot watch fans another choice for a top tier Pilot Chronograph outside of the IWC and Glashutte Original Pilot watches. I particularly like how Zenith has done the lugs on these watches… I really want to pick up one of these as they are my favourite Pilot Watches out right now.

I particularly like the 48mm GMT model. My kind of watch.
