The legendary brand, known for its mix of handsome, refined and highly functional watches for all occasions, just shook up the watch market with a much-needed introduction — and you should take note if you’re a lefty in need of a new, stylish dive watch. The LHD is one-of-a-kind and features the technical specs of a standout dive watch, with a winding stem on the left side of the case.

Tudor watches are just as well-known for their beautiful, pleasingly rugged design as they are for their ability to be worn on land and sea. The Pelagos LHD builds off the renowned quality of the original Pelagos–one of the models that built the Tudor brand. The titanium bracelet LHD features a ceramic matte black disc dial, strong markings and a classic dive bezel — in short, it’s the type of watch you can wear with your favorite suit, a stylish winter blazer or a tailored topcoat.

Oh, and if you feel like throwing on something more rugged — say, a slim chambray shirt and durable leather chukka boots — the Tudor Pelagos LHD is going to play quite nicely off a more casual outfit, too.

What’s more, the brand uses its own in-house movement, a surefire sign of excellent quality and reliability in terms of timekeeping. Like the rest of its collection, the Pelagos LHD is built for movement — if you’re hitting the road for travel, taking a deep sea diving trip or traveling cross-country on a business trip, it’s the one watch you need. Between the titanium bracelet and handsome, versatile black dial, you could feasibly wear it all week long and on into the weekend – and for an investment-worthy watch, that’s absolutely how you should wear it. Left-handers, rejoice – you’ve got a new watch to buy.

Citizen watches Promaster anniversary: Citizen Promaster Geo Trekker

This year, Citizen Watches is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Citizen Promaster series, and the Promaster Geo Trekker is the latest addition to the year-long celebration. To say it's full of some majorly advanced features would be an understatement, and it's as functional as it looks. With the state-of-the-art Eco-Drive Caliber H864 movement and a radio-controlled world timer, it's bold, to say the least, and will suit you just fine if you ever find yourself in a tent in the Carpathian mountains. This innovative movement uses the power of light, whether it be sun or artificial light, to power the watch in a sustainable way and eliminate the need for a battery replacement.
Technical specifications
So, what about these technical features? It's encased in a silver-tone stainless steel case, which you don't often see with such a heavy-duty watch, and is why we said you can go from day to night in it. It measures a truly massive 46mm in width and 11.5mm in thickness, and if you've ever worn a watch with this measurement, you'll understand how big that feels. The watch dial is protected by sapphire crystals, which are resistant to reflections and keep it safe from impact. The bracelet is stainless steel and comes with a fold-over clasp and hidden push buttons. Additionally, it has world-time capabilities using a Northern Hemisphere disc and date and power reserve indicators.
