With the weather already warming up, chances are you’re going to find yourself diving into some body of water in the near future.
And whether that’s going to be a lake, an ocean or a rooftop kiddie pool, you’re going to want a proper dive watch—with the requisite depth rating.
It would seem that another legendary Swiss mechanical watchmaker has thrown its hat into the smartwatch ring...
Today IWC announced its plans for IWC Connect, a similar concept to the Montblanc e-Strap we covered a while back, which straps a miniature smartwatch to a traditional timepiece.
As we venture into warmer territory, your wrist is probably beginning to feel a little muggy under that leather or croc watchband of yours.

Legendary musician and man of style Frank Sinatra would’ve turned 100 this year.
And to commemorate his centennial, musically inclined watchmaker Raymond Weil made a special edition of their Maestro dress watch. More often than not, tribute items are more about cashing in on a name than actually making something worth wearing, but they did a good job of making this watch thoughtful, understated and, most importantly: something that wouldn’t look out of place on the wrist of a Rat Packer.
You’ve heard of timeshares before (usually in the company of billowy aloha shirts and drinks with umbrellas).

There’s been a lot of talk about smartwatches lately...
But Ressence makes the sort of smart watch (two words) that we can get behind.
