Paul Picot C Type Yachtman 3 Watches   watch releases

Paul Picot offers these new C-Type Yachtman watches for 2011. The naming schemas confuse me. The C-Type I know, but I am not sure whether these are C-Type and Yachtman watches, or C-Type Yachtman watches!? Screw it, I'm just going to use the Yachtman name for now. Yachtman 3 to be exact - which sounds like an awful movie name. The watches are still cool looking, though, and this year they make equal jabs at Rolex and IWC wanting to be something like a Submariner or Aquatimer.

Regardless of what the Yachtman watches are trying to be, they can stand on their own. As you can see, there are two versions of the new Yachtmaster 3. The "Classic" three-hand automatic and the "Chronograph." Like the Aquatimer watches, Paul Picot says the bezel inserts are sapphire but that there will also be all steel bezel options.

Size wise, the Yachtman 3 watches are decent at 43mm wide and the cases are steel. They are water-resistant to 200 meters and have AR coated sapphire crystals. The watch dials are textured, which is nice. They have little waves that are meant to remind of you being in the water (or drowning) and feeling secure that your watch will survive. The blue and yellow dials are fun and sporty but might be a bit too reminiscent of IWC Aquatimers. There are likely to be other color combos available as well.  Overall, I am a big fan of the dials for their polished looks with easy to read hands and markers, and it is OK that they aren't super unique.

For that Rolex Sub homage look, the Yachtman Classic is the way to go. I almost like it better than the Chronograph. Paul Picot makes their own interpretation of the Submariner dial and, to be honest, I think it is one of the nicest ones out there that combines the making brand's DNA with that Submariner look that they are trying to emulate. Inside the watch are Swiss ETA automatic movements. The Yachtman 3 Chronograph has a Valjoux 7750 while the Yachtman 3 Classic has an ETA 2892 - or similar, I don't know exactly which. Paul Picot obfuscates the matter by calling the movements their PP1600 and PP1700 - where do they come up with these names? Prices are $2,750 - $3,190 for the Yachtman, and $4,200 - $4,290 for the Yachtman Chronograph. Look for the new Paul Picot C-Type Yachtman 3 Classic and Chronograph watches soon.

So no need for the Plongeur model anymore then - nice looking piece and decent value for money - I notice there have been no recent comments/reviews re this Brand - are they still going strong ? .

PS I have the Plongeuer Chronometre - with ETA7751 - a decent if noisy piece of work, neatly presented in its "dive box"..

The "Seahag" is from Popeye. I'll submit the "Seagal" (instead of seagull).

Thank you, Chris. I enjoy devising names, nicknames, etc. I liked some past names
of certain products: "Airwolf", "Titanic", "Metallo", "Rolex Newman Daytona"....
Do you think "Seabitch" would be a complimentary name for a womens' diver?
I intend it only as an endearment, not a derogatory label.

As to cool dive watch names i am still waiting for someone (Bremont or Chris ward maybe) to use: SEA FURY - After the awesomely fast RAF navy Hawker fighter from WWII - Its just asking for it if you ask me

These look pretty good. Nice dials and restrained hands, although one might expect more visible, thicker hands on a nautical-themed watch. The cases look very... pointy. I wonder if the bezels are lumed? I'll assume they are.

These houses seem to be @ losses for clever, original model names. For Omega, the next new model could be the "Moonmaster". For any seaworthy diving watches they could
try: "Deepdepth", "Bottomdweller", "Fathomfighter", etc.

Really like the blue three hander.

Nice watches. I like the blue and yellow. Can't wait to see the submariner.

Yes, but "Seahag" might be funnier and more acceptible.

These pieces, are pretty boring. Probably because I already know the aquatimer so well - I'm not looking at anything new.

I am very happy they went to sapphire bezels though - so much better than the gawd-awful relief-style square ones PP uses on the Carre models.

I love "Fathomfighter". I think I would buy a watch just for that name. You should work for Rolex or Omega. If it was the Fathomfighter 3000 Sub Date Master Yachtsman End of Time, then it could be an AP limited edition, but only if you had Eric Bana's signature on the back.

What about "Sinkmaster" or "Sharkbait 5000?"
