Dear horological enthusiasts or soon to be: Wristwatches are the new essentials.
Wearing a good wristwatch is one of the most important things that a man can do for himself and we have carefully put together some of the ultimate timepieces from top watch brands – Tag Heuer, Hamilton and more. Check them out some of these timepieces and why you should add them to your collection.
The Geneva-based brand, Rolex has had a constellation of milestones: in 1914, Rolex became the first manufacturer of a chronometer wristwatch and in 1929, perfected the idea of the ‘modern watch’ with the waterproof “Oyster” case.
While most brands have become technologically sophisticated, Rolex has maintained the standards of essentialism: making improvements to its watches while preserving the identity of its historical design. For example, the new, New GMT-Master II, a perfect wristwatch for travellers, displays two time zones at once. The watch design goes back to the vintage years with its Jubilee bracelet in stainless steel. Indeed, Rolex doesn’t just tell time, it tells history.
Bell and Ross
Bell and Ross is famous for its resistance to extreme conditions. The French luxury brand is ubiquitous among people who defy gravity, (astronauts/pilots), and those who rival the waves, (sea divers). The BR V2-93 GMT 24H model is capable of indicating three time zones at once – the black sectors of its stain polished steel case signify nighttime and the grey area daytime. According to the design engineer’s, the black dial design was inspired by the colours used for an aircraft’s onboard flight instruments, which are mostly black to avoid reflections.
Tag Heuer offers an appropriate and elegant look for evenings at the polo-club as wells as events that scream nobility. The Kirium F1 by Tag Heuer stays in touch with the early style of the brand popular with its customers. The Kirium F1 Watch has a stainless steel band, coupled with a backlit face protected with a sapphire crystal cover which stops the reflectivity that could make reading time underwater tricky. This Watch can be worn as an everyday accessory.
The extinguished Hamilton brand watch is a must-have for any man. Its Khaki Pilot Chrono Quartz comes with two different dial options: a choice of leather strap or durable metal bracelet. If you are a fan of the Red Bull Air Race Championship, (which Hamilton sponsors) then you are right on the market with this piece – According to Hamilton and empirical evidence, The Khaki Pilot Chrono Quartz is designed using fans as an inspiration. The watch has a grey and blue dial with red and blue details, as well as the Red Bull Air Race logo etched on the case back.
With there has never been a better time to buy a new wristwatch or two.
