U-BOAT is one of those brands that elicits plenty of passion and debate either for or against, but the powerful visual impact of the watches is undeniable. Italo Fontana, creator of U-BOAT, has worked with all kinds of materials to produce unusual watches, from classic steel to the more technological magnesium, as well as bronze, gold, silver and ceramic.

The dexterous collaborative instincts of Jean-Claude Biver can already be witnessed behind brands such as Zenith. The El Primero brand will launch a series of limited edition watches, leading the charge with a Rolling Stones El Primero 1969 for the legendary rock group’s current ‘14 On Fire’ Tour.
The Lady Diver has been part of the Ulysse Nardin collection since 2001. But for 2014 there is a freshly revisited marine-inspired design. Introduced at Baselworld 2014, the new Lady Diver’s dial, bezel and strap feature a wave motif. On the iridescent mother-of-pearl dial, waves seem to shimmer in the sunlight, pronounced by 24 circling diamonds on the dial and bezel marking the hours, with more than 30 of precious gemstones nuzzled between the lugs.

We see so many watches on Watchuseek each day it’s easy to become blasé and cynically casual about both new watches and new watch brands. There was a lengthy thread recently on Blacklisted Watches, well, here is a new brand actually called Blacklist Watches.
Part of the Torica Tecnica collection, the Parmigiani Tecnica Ombre Blanche ripples with an interplay of light and sparkling finesse.

Paris based brand SAINT HONORE made something of a Gallic splash at Baselworld this year with the introduction of the new ARTCODE; a combination of classic looks with sporty allure.
