The pointer date complication probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when one considers Swiss independent Swiss Oris, but it is arguably one of the brand’s most important collections – which is why Oris is celebrating the 80th anniversary of its first Pointer Date watch introduced in 1938 with a very special Big Crown bronze edition.
Recently,Swiss Breitling announced a number of new models and even an entirely new collection of vintage-styled watches. Well, the Breitling Premier collection is “new” for the modern Breitling brand, at least, as it resurrects a name from the 1940s. The collection includes a number of models including, naturally, many chronographs, but the new three-hand-and-date Breitling Premier Automatic 40 watch is the simplest of the bunch. Alongside the Premier Automatic Day & Date 40, it is also the most affordably priced.
