Europa star just announced AP's new Royal Oak Offshore - The Pride of Russia Limited Edition.
The watch features a new dial treatment which gives this extreme-sports watch the look of classical refinement - tapestry motif in the center is encircled by a polished ring with mirror like reflects. The hands in rose or white gold are skeletonized and the numerals, also in rose or white gold, applied. Each piece will be contained in a black lacquered presentation box with dark red suede leather interior. The Russian Imperial emblem will also be emblazoned on the outside of the box.

Ulysee Nardin just had a wonderful launch party here in Singapore for its latest 2005 collection. Several of the new pieces were captured in my photomontage here: ULYSEE NARDIN 2005
Just see below - on the right is the previous FREAK Tourbillion and on the left is the new model. Click on the photo below to see a large copy of it. In my opinion, these watches will one day find a home in the Musuem of Modern Art in New York. BTW - Did I say this is a wonderful piece of horological art? ;-)
Henry Moser is an old name in horology. Its pedigree name has been resurrected for a new small watch company formed recently in Switzerland. With a small group of respected masterwatchmakers they managed to craft some excited new timepieces with very clever ideas with classic aesthetics.
Its flagship piece at BASEL 2005 (photo on the left) is the 7 day power reserve winding perpetual calendar is probably has the most simplest layout ever seen for that complication.

The Sinn watch company recently announced their third U series watch - the UX which is a quartz based watch but with a special capability of being able to go to unlimited depths.
Essentially its a silicon oil filled watch that will be able to compensate any pressure at any depth as there is no air internally to compress.
