Prepare for boating season by outfitting yourself with a proper timepiece like the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean GMT Watch ($TBA). While the name might be a mouthful, the design is classically minimalist, with a blue dial and crown with orange accents. Features include a 43.5mm stainless steel case, a helium release valve, water resistance to 600 meters, an AR-coated sapphire crystal, a sapphire see-through back, an Omega caliber 8605 automatic movement, and your choice of a steel bracelet or a fetching blue rubber strap.
For as long as we can remember, watches have been built in the same way, with crystal sitting on top of hands, sitting on top of a dial. The Ressence Type 3 Watch ($TBA) doesn't totally reinvent this paradigm, but it comes close. With no hands and no crown, it features a series of constantly rotating discs that indicate hours, minutes, seconds, and days, and the space between them and the crystal is filled with a naphtha-type liquid that makes them appear to be projected directly onto the crystal. The back serves to replicate the functions of a crown, letting you set the time, date, and wind the watch. It's not a smartwatch, just a smarter watch.
Bell & Ross' watches have always resembled the guages inside a plane, but these Bell & Ross Aviation Collection Watches ($TBA) take that relationship to the next level. Inspired by the heading, airspeed, and climb speed indicators, these new watches feature three different ways of indicating the time, based on a disc system, a 60-minute dial, and a standard dial, respectively. Each one is limited to just 999 examples, and the first 99 will arrive in a collectors box with all six pieces of the collection, including the three mentioned above, as well as last year's Horizon, Altimeter, and Turn Coordinator models.
