As you may have seen, we recently launched our Elite watch section which includes the ultra sophisticated, stylish and functional TechnoMarine watches.
If you like what you have seen so far from TechnoMarine then you will be pleased to know that a further collection within the range is due to be launched named the Cruise Sport collection which was unveiled at Baselworld 2010 – the world’s leading watch and jewellery exhibition.
The existing and varied TechnoMarine Cruise collections have really placed the brand on the map with their fun, flirty vibrantly coloured designs and the unique material combination of diamond and plastic. The Cruise watches quickly became the hottest watches to be seen wearing and now the latest Cruise Sport collection takes that to the next level but with a slightly different and more understated tone of style.
The TechnoMarine Cruise Sport collection is a revamped interpretation of the signature Cruise collection with a streamlined aesthetic that is perhaps a little less elaborate and without any embellishments but equally striking and boasting a strong and fierce presence!
The strap is made from silicone which has a softer finish and is more flexible upon the wrist and the TechnoMarine Cruise Sport watches are water resistant up to 200m. Available in a chronograph or 3-hand style, the new watches feature a re-designed bezel which is smoother and sleeker. The dial hands are wider to convey the essence of a strong sense of purpose and the re-envisioned 3D dial has a new depth and added definition which is testament to TechnoMarine’s superior technical innovation.
In terms of aesthetic style, the Cruise Sport has a stealth-like black finish which is effectively enhanced by subtle pops of colour featured in the bezel, minute hand and tachymeter which include purposely selected shades of white, blue, fuchsia, green, and orange. These colours are specifically chosen to signify and convey the brand’s invigorating ‘live for the moment’ and adventurous attitude whilst also of course allowing the watches to transcend through seasonal trends, climates and occasions. The new TechnoMarine Cruise watches look equally amazing at sea on a diving adventure as they do in the boardroom or dressed up for a chic evening out at the finest restaurant in town and also possess the incredible function and quality to support the immaculate, streamlined and sophisticated style.
The new TechnoMarine Cruise Sport collection is a further reminder of how the brand has successfully placed itself at the forefront of watch innovation, design and style. The collection will be available in June (we’ll be sure to let you know when!) and we just know that they are guaranteed to impress!

First we have the exclusive range of U-Boat watches which are designed by renowned Italian watchmaker Italo Fontana and are famous for their bold, aggressive, strong and dynamic aesthetics. U-Boat watches were originally intended to be worn by the Italian Navy and are therefore designed to endure the most extreme of weather and light conditions. The most distinctive physical factor which separates U-Boat watches from others is that the crown is positioned on the left-hand side; a unique and unexpected design feature which also enhances and compliments the bold aesthetic of U-Boat watches including the oversized numerals and markers. Every U-Boat watch is powered by Swiss ETA movements and each model is contained within an oversized stainless steel case ranging from a large 45 millimeters to an impressive 55 millimeters in diameter. From traditional and refined to sporty and ultra contemporary, U-Boat watches incorporate red, yellow, and orange PVD-treated crystals and precious metals uniquely fused with rubber and steel. U-Boat watches are a perfect combination of the old meeting the modern and are constantly challenging traditional design methods. They are made to be worn with confidence and express an exquisite sense of style and the appreciation for a highly technical and superior lifetime accessory.
Following on from U-Boat watches, we have the impressive Welder watch collection, also founded by Italo Founder and what can be described as the next generation of U-Boat watches. Welder watches immediately grab your attention due to their distinctive layered three dimensional dial that gives extreme depth to each watch. With an overall bold, strong and statement aesthetic form, Welder watches feature the crown on the left-hand side of the case, as seen on U-Boat watches. This distinctive and purposeful aesthetic choice is to increase comfort and enables the oversized crown to be easily accessed and functioned. Some Welder watches come equipped with interchangeable lenses of 4 colours adding versatility and Welder watches also uniquely incorporate incredibly precise Japanese movement as opposed to Swiss movement. Representing the exquisite, refined and skilled elements of Italian design, Welder watches are contemporary models which perfectly unite precision, innovative style and distinctive character.
