A glimpse at what’s on our site to keep you up to date on the lat­est watch news

Wolf Be­neath the Waves

The Zo­diac Sea Wolf was one of the very first mod­ern dive watches, de­but­ing in the same year, 1953, as its more fa­mous con­tem­po­raries, the Rolex Sub­mariner and the Blanc­pain Fifty Fath­oms. The more wa­ter­re­sis­tant “Su­per” ver­sion, launched in 1968, which of course means that 2018 marks the model’s 50th an­niver­sary. Zo­diac pays trib­ute to the his­tor­i­cal model with the new Su­per Sea Wolf

68 Lim­ited Edi­tion.

The Watchtime Q&A: Bulgari CEO Jeanchristophe Babin

Bulgari set new world records at Basel­world 2018 with the world’s thinnest au­to­matic watch and a minute re­peater in a car­bon case. CEO Jeanchristophe Babin ex­plains how this came about in an in­ter­view with Rüdi­ger Bucher, editor-inchief of Watchtime’s Ger­man sis­ter mag­a­zine Chronos.

Keep­ing It Reel

“Visser” means “fish­er­man” in Dutch, which gives you a hint as to the pedi­gree of the Visser watch brand, founded by Robert Koelewyn of Hol­land. Koelewyn, who par­layed his ex­pe­ri­ence in the aero­space in­dus­try into de­vel­op­ing high-tech fish­ing reels, set out to de­sign a time­piece that avid fish­er­men would ap­pre­ci­ate, with a de­sign they could re­late to. We go hands-on with the re­sult, the Visser Ocean Blue Au­to­matic.

The Rail­mas­ter Goes Denim

Omega’s 60th an­niver­sary launch of the 1957 Tril­ogy, with three lim­ited-edi­tion time­pieces hon­or­ing the Speed­mas­ter, Sea­mas­ter 300 and Rail­mas­ter, re­in­stated the Rail­mas­ter model to the brand’s core col­lec­tion. This year, Omega is up­dat­ing the long-un­der­rated time­piece with a ver­ti­cally brushed, blue jean-in­spired dial, and the op­tion to pair it with a gen­uine denim strap, to honor the watch’s his­tory as a work­ing­man’s in­dus­trial com­pan­ion.

TAG Heuer’s Fever Pitch

In re­cent years, TAG Heuer has ramped up its sup­port of soc­cer leagues around the world, be­com­ing of­fi­cial time­keeper for many in­ter­na­tional as­so­ci­a­tions and teams, in­clud­ing Eng­land’s Manch­ester United, ar­guably the most pop­u­lar and valu­able team in the world. The watch emerg­ing from the part­ner­ship is a new Car­rera with bright red Man U brand­ing and equipped with the skele­tonized Heuer Cal­iber 01.

Ex­tended Drive

Cartier built upon its long tra­di­tion of el­e­gantly shaped watches in 2016 with the in­tro­duc­tion of a new men’s col­lec­tion, called Drive de Cartier. This year the watc­hand-jewelry mai­son ex­pands the se­ries with new vari­a­tions whose cush­ion-shaped cases fea­ture a slim­mer pro­file for an even more un­der­stated look: the Cartier Drive de Cartier Ex­tra-flat.
