New watches are pouring in as brands big and small ramp up for the year's biggest watch industry event, Watches & Wonders Geneva — held virtually this year, of course. That means a wide range of styles and price p0ints, from casual and affordable models to high-end, avant-garde and technically fascinating watches. 2021's major releases are just around the corner, but the selection of watches that came out March has whet our appetites.

Wolf Creek Watch Co.

Presented by Wolf Creek Watch Company

Upgrade your accessory game this season with the sleek bronze Voyageur Mechanical watch from Wolf Creek Watch Company. Inspired by outdoor exploration, the Voyageur Mechanical is the perfect addition to your wardrobe not only as an adventure companion, but to inspire taking more adventures as well — in both urban environments and natural ones. The watch is designed in Minnesota, made in Switzerland and features a CuSn8 bronze tonneau case with completely custom-designed details that set it apart from other watches on the market. The case dimensions make it incredibly wearable — 38mm width, 43mm lug-to-lug and 11mm thick. It's powered by a reliable ETA 2801 movement with a 42-hour power reserve — important factors in a watch made for daily wear. The Voyageur ships on a custom-made strap from Leather Works Minnesota, but also includes two NATO straps (a green and a brown). Secure yours soon, because the Voyageur was only produced in a limited number.

Shinola Silly Putty Detrola Watch

No, it's not a watch made of the famously gooey, bouncy rubber material: it's the Detroit-based watchmaker's latest co-branding exercise with iconic American companies like Silly Putty's owner, Crayola. The watch is appropriately playful with bright colors and affordable pricing, but it unfortunately doesn't allow you to transfer newspaper-ink images with funny distortions.

Sinn's classic U1 dive watch is famously made from German submarine steel. The newest version is fully treated with the brand's proprietary "Tegimented" hardening process and a new dial execution.

Boutique Italian brand with a mountaineering theme Echo/Neutra impressed us with the design and value of its debut product, the Averau field watch.

The Averau 39 is also offered in variations with a small seconds subdial or a moon phase indicator.

Hamilton Intra-Matic Auto Chrono Green Dial Watch

style roundup

Alongside new and refined, hand-wound versions of its Sixties-styled Intra-Matic chronograph, Hamilton gave its familiar automatic model an olive green dial. With the contrasting subdials enthusiasts love, it still qualifies as a "reverse panda dial" of sorts, and the automatic models are immediately distinguishable due to a contrasting tachymeter scale at the dial's periphery.

Blancpain Tribute to Fifty Fathoms No Rad Watch

When, in the 1950s-1960s, it became clear that the luminous radium paint used on watch dials was radioactive and a health risk, brands like Blancpain were at pains to emphasized that their watches didn't use it. The dive watches they made for the German Navy's Combat Swimmers in the 1960s featured a bright yellow and red, X'ed-out radiation symbol with the words "No Radiations," which has since become irresistible to collectors. (Tritium, which is still mildly radioactive, in fact, replaced the radium, making these dials technically "less radiations" rather than none.) Collectors will similarly perk up for the latest limited-edition recreation of that watch from Blancpain.

Omega Seamaster 300m Black Black

Omega's new dive watch is so black that putting it once in the name wasn't enough. It's another example of the all-black or "phantom" style of watch, in which every element including the hands and dial is, well, black. Will it be legible enough to function as a watch or is it simply a fashion statement? Best to see it in person and judge for yourself. Its color, however, isn't its most notable feature: almost every external component of the Seamaster 300m Black Black is made of ceramic, from the case to the bezel to the dial.
