Luxury watches are truly fascinating. They might be small in size but they make up for it by the immensely intricate as well as complicated mechanism that is inside them. This is what makes these tiny uber luxurious objects so precious. This blog will be focussing directly on some of the most popular and fantastic luxury watches that have been launched this year. The haute horlogerie industry is definitely one to be praised for its efforts to keep the classical art of watchmaking alive and these following watches are proof of those efforts.
The name Rolex Daytona incites a feeling of joy and pure exhilaration. Why is that? Well, the timepiece is simply amazing. To think of it, the watch does not have a cool complication, it did not land on the moon, and it does not use any out of the box material. So, what is it about the watch that makes it so special?
Truth be told, the Rolex name has this effect on people. How did this happen? Well no one really knows. You can pin this on the fact that the Swiss watchmaker has worked its butt off in the last so many decades, or you can pin this on some absurd theory of supply and demand. But the reality is that the Rolex Daytona is an icon in the watch business that people simply love.
Hublot Big Bang
The Hublot Big Bang is, needless to say, a top dog in the luxury watchmaking industry. The watches in the collection are absolute bangers in the sense that they are unbelievably superb. Be it the movement, the materials used, or the overall style, the Big Bang collection is solid.
The Tissot T-Sport collection, just as the name suggests, is a wonderful collection that comprises of top-notch sports watches. The timepieces are sturdy, tough, and efficient.
TAG Heuer Carrera
TAG Heuer Carrera has a massive history in the field of motorsports and racing. The watch was born out of the thrill and passion for racing and speed and that is what this collection is all about. The Carrera is a timepiece that represents the best of TAG Heuer.
Rado True is a great watch collection that does a pretty good job at combining class and function. Do not let the low-key profile of the watch mislead you for even a second. The timepiece is an absolute masterclass from Rado in terms of mechanics as well as aesthetics.
IWC Da Vinci
The Speedmaster might be a watch that is known for its historical feats but the IWC Da Vinci is also not far behind. The timepiece from IWC is a stark reminder of what persistent and dedicated watchmaking looks like. It was the first IWC watch to get the first Swiss made quartz movement. This was way back in the 1980s. Today, however, IWC does not deal in quartz movements so there is no Da Vinci with battery powered mechanisms. But the watch does come with some seriously amazing automatic movements and complications.
Any list of Cartier watches will be incomplete without mentioning the name Santos. Yes, it is true. The watch is just as legendary as it is gorgeous. The timepiece came at the very beginning of the 20th century. The watch is a classical creation that adds up modern elements of art and design.
The Santos is touted as many things. It is called the first men’s wrist watch. It is also called the first pilot’s watch by many. The thing is that watches are intriguing and they always will be. However, somewhere down the line it is also about heritage and history. When it comes to Cartier watches, the answer is simple. They have it all. Be it mechanical prowess, be it looks, or be it a solid backstory.
Cartier Ballon Bleu
The Cartier Ballon Bleu is an icon in the luxury watch industry. There is no doubt that the watch is a sheer reflection of the core values and ethos that Cartier stands for. The idea creating a watch that would eventually define the art deco of the decade or the century is a wild one but Cartier might have achieved it.
Today, the Longines brand harbors watch series such as the HydroConquest and the Master Collection. These are the best examples that one can pick out when talking about the gradual but inevitable evolution of the Longines watch brand.
If you take out Longines watches from a few decades back, you will see that they are different. They would be more classical, more elegant, and will be more focused on the trends of the past. Today, however things have changed.
One such watch that deserves a mention here is the HydroConquest collection. The highly utilitarian watch series is home to some fine divers’ watches that are also greatly priced and are very affordable.
The Omega Speedmaster’s iconic history makes it a special watch. In fact, it is much more than just a watch. For god’s sake, it was the first watch to make it to the moon and back. The timepiece is a part of the watchmaking industry that has become a part of the human history as well.
The Panerai Luminor is a flagship watch collection from the Panerai house of watches. The Luminor is a watch that exudes an aura of class and elegance. Not only that but it is also a watch that is superbly functional. After all, the Luminor goes back to the 1950s when it was first created for the Italian Royal Navy. The watch was a rendition of the Radiomir which was discontinued due to inevitable reasons. The Luminor of today is a suave and dressier watch. Nonetheless, it is still gorgeous and sumptuous.
