Breitling Transocean Chronograph Edition


Breitling takes it back to the late '50s with their Transocean Chronograph Edition, a new model inspired specifically by a model from 1958 created due to the increasing popularity of international air travel. The limited edition watch celebrates this history with an elegant new design with a vintage inspired dial and their in-house movement.

The dial gets decorated with a two-tone dial, vintage-style subregisters, and a unique caseback detail that opens to reveal the sapphire crystal caseback that gives you a look at the Breitling Caliber 01 movement. The watch is also matched with a mesh steel bracelet and comes with a leather or crocodile leather strap.

Montblanc Metamorphosis II


Pens are the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Montblanc, but take one look at the Metamorphosis II and you'll know that watchmaking is a part of their business they're taking very, very seriously.

The name comes from its incredible face-changing dial that consists of 82 moving components that can dynamically switch the face to a classical layout to chronograph by just pushing the slide on the left side of the watch. Obviously it's something that has to be seen to be believed. View the Metamorphosis in action after the jump.
