Citizen’s Calibre 3100 watch just oozes style, with a stainless steel case, thick roman numerals and a perpetual calendar; heck, it even runs on solar power thanks to its Eco-Drive.
For a surfer brand, Quiksilver’s MPH watch is surprisingly sophisticated; we dig the way the face blends with the strap. It’s made with a stainless steel case and is waterproof up to 10 ATM.

Bell & Ross’ manual Minuteur watch features a horizontal design with a “minuteur” timer to the left and a flying tourbillon; it’s crafted with a titanium case and sapphire crystals.
It won’t start an Aston Martin like their AMVOX2, but Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Master Compressor Diving Pro Geographic watch will take your pulse and can withstand depths of up to 300m.
Audemars’ ritzy Royal Oak Offshore line has added this limited edition Singapore Grand Prix watch; it sports a sharp red colorway, three distinct counters and luminescent numerals.

The separate hour and minute hands on Alpina’s Avalanche Extreme watch are unusual, but we dig the stainless steel, sapphire crystal construction and slick manual styling.
We love multifunction gear, which is why we like Suunto’s Core Watch: designed for outdoorsy types, it packs an altimeter, barometer and compass. Oh, and it tells the time, too.
Any company called Welder is clearly for guys; the K24 watch is a big, burly 2.5″ watch with a thick IPB-treated stainless steel case, chunky chrono buttons and a utilitarian face.
Concord’s C1 Gravity watch is a followup to last year’s C1; available in white or rose gold, its chief feature is an externally housed tourbillon which mitigates the effects of gravity.
We admit feature a lot of expensive watches, but we dig Fossil’s relatively affordable James Automatic watch for its high quality Citizen (Miyota) movement. Note: it’s pretty big.

Today’s dose of watch porn: Urwerk’s UR103 Hexagon gets six-sided satellites, a black alligator leather strap and a plasma vapor deposited platinum case. Only ten will be made.
Tokyoflash’s Negative is their latest watch and is mana from geek heaven with oversized pixels. It features an inverted LCD display, 7 color LED backlight and stainless steel band.
