Watch Collection Essentials: Executive Watches

The Scuderia Ferrari Formula Italia collection contains both three-hand and chronograph models that are sized 43mm wide and 45mm wide, respectively. These have a tonneau-shaped steel case with a round dial and a retro dashboard instrument appeal. Little touches like the knurling on the outside bezel and the crown are nice details which I hope lend themselves to a higher-end feel for these sub 0 timepieces. Over the dials are domed mineral crystal and the cases are water resistant to 50 meters.

Dubai will play host to TAG Heuer’s sea-friendly watches, and the centerpiece of the Dubai exhibit is the Seafarer or Maréograph from 1950, the world's first chronograph with tide indicators.

There are many people who are far more educated when it comes to each and every limited edition Panerai watch out there, but I am rather sure that this watch has been produced in the recent past by Panerai already. What is unique for 2015 is the engravings on the case. While not new, engraved-case Panerai watches are very uncommon - though you do see them show up as limited edition or piece unique models once in a while.

The Rolex Sky-Dweller remains one of the interesting acquired tastes of the Rolex world toward the top-end of the brand (without including precious stones). If you are looking for a cool movement, large wearing size, and distinct sense of Rolex class, there aren't too many other ways to go. Prices for these Rolex Sky-Dweller watches are ,150 (18k yellow gold on a strap), ,550 (18k white gold on a strap), and ,850 (18k Everose on the bracelet). rolex.com

The matte black color and texture of the Rolex Yacht-Master bezel is echoed on the dial - which again is very rarely matte on a modern Rolex sports watch. This makes for a cool look that is both a bit more legible and aggressive looking than the slightly glossy Rolex Oyster sport watches we are used to. Of course, with the 116655 Rolex Yacht-Master the hands and hour markers are in 18k Everose gold and polished - which gives the watch that real "Rolex character." It also happens to look nothing like all currently available Rolex Oyster sport watches - not to mention other Rolex Yacht-Master timepieces. For this reason alone, I think watch lovers will take keen interest in the Rolex Yacht-Master 116655.

Once activated, the Breitling Emergency II ended up being strapped to a tree on the mountain top, with both its radio wires hanging out of its sides. On the screen, as you can see above, a remaining signal time counter was placed, that would indicate for how long could Jeremy and James could see the watch's exact position on their – also branded – tablet.

When we first brought you a hands-on impression of the original watches Fiona Krüger was creating, Ariel mentioned that the pieces were very reminiscent of the skeletons you see associated with "Day of the Dead," or Día de Muertos. The exception, to my eyes, was the fact that they were rather monochromatic. Now, I'm not a necessarily a celebrant of that day, but it calls to mind something very vividly colored. With her latest model, the Fiona Krüger Celebration Skull, that's all changed.

Baselworld 2015 sees the launch of five new models from Dodane. Although similar in silhouette (the cases measure 42.5mm in width), each one offers a distinctive style, inferring the trends and quirks of other, more mainstream brands. This is not to detract from the finished product. If, for example, you are a fan of the Panerai Radiomir font and the Breitling Aerospace display, you might find a pleasant balance has been struck by the Dodane Quartz Chronograph.

As I mentioned at the outset, the size and weight of the Longines Avigation really remind me of a diver (though the style, of course, hearkens more to an Aviator than a diver). With that mindset, the watch went on the wrist and accompanied me throughout the day without a second thought. Yes, if you are not used to bigger, heavier watches, something like this would definitely weigh you down. For myself, it was not really an issue.

The watch itself is an incredible sight, and resembles the 1970s Tudor Chronograph Oysterdate quite closely. Albeit, this newer version is larger at 42mm and doesn’t have the magnifier for the date window on the sapphire. However, this doesn’t matter to me. I like the change from the vintage watch’s looks and Tudor has done an excellent job with the Tudor Heritage Chrono. Tudor has also impressed me in general with their overall styling, and I think it’s important for them stand out from their parent company, Rolex.

I can easily say that the Richard Mille RM 025 Tourbillon Chronograph Diver's watch is one of the most exotic watches in the world. There aren't very many of them around in general, and very few are alike, given the array of highly limited edition models available regionally around the world. This Richard Mille RM 025 Tourbillon Chronograph Diver's watch in a black-colored titanium and carbon composite case with red strap is and matching crown ring is a version that I've only seen this once - and chances are that I'll never see another one around quite like it, because it is, in fact, a custom piece with the red hardware elements. Is rarity alone what makes the Richard Mille RM 025 Tourbillon Chronograph Diver's watch exotic? No. Like a Ferrari FXX, this is a rare species in an already rarefied world, given what it does and what it is made out of.

In reviewing the H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Calendar watch, it is impossible to fully describe each watch in the collection. H. Moser & Cie. produced a series of versions in various case materials and with a range of dials. Here, we have the H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Calendar watch in 18k rose gold with a black dial - but I've also included some images of the black-colored titanium case model with rose gold hands and hour markers. Compare it to the recently released 18k white gold H. Moser & Cie Edeavour Perpetual Calendar version with their "funky blue" (yes, that is the official name) dial here.

The point of all this? Despite the centuries-old history of watchmaking, having intelligently designed and sized hands remains a challenge for some brands – you know who you are – even when it comes to ordinarily shaped (i.e. round) watches: the hands are often much too small, failing to reach their respective tracks on the periphery of the dial. When it comes to oval or square shaped watches, however, the challenge is exponentially greater, as when one designs the hands to be just long enough for the shorter side, they are still too small for the longer end – and when done vice versa, the hands are too long for the narrower part.
