Welcome back to the next edition of our new series where we pick out our favourite watches we come across on the Amazon marketplace. In this week's instalment, we've gone on the hunt for some obscure references that the world might have forgotten about, including watches from Patek Philippe, Arnold & Son and Ulysse Nardin. Enjoy!
Patek Philippe 5524G Calatrava Pilot Travel Time
Perhaps one of Patek Philippe's most obscure references and one that is certainly as polarising as it is atypical for the atelier, the 5524G Calatrava Pilot Travel Time is an interesting design and a first for the watchmaker. Big, bold cathedral-stylised hour numerals and hands, combined with a somewhat oversized white gold case and brown calfskin leather strap make for what is a compelling design.
Arnold & Son TE8
Arnold & Son's approach to the TE8 is a mixture of technical prowess, of minutiae details and of fine finishing. It's not a piece to appease everyone's tastes, but it is a watch that delivers in droves. The contemporary styling of the tourbillon cage and bridge, coupled with the extravagant dial design and oversized proportions make for a package that is well worth your attention.
Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton
The heavy-hitter in this week's instalment, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton is an all-out beast of haute horlogerie. Encased int hat stunning grey sandblasted titanium case is a feat of horological magnificence that makes for one hell of a thin complicated watch.
Ulysse Nardin Blast Tourbillon
Clad in titanium like the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton, only this time the Ulysse Nardin Blast Tourbillon does away with paper-thin proportions and instead ensures drama and theatrics at every corner. Thanks to the heavily openworked dial, every bit of the calibre UN-172 is on display. A feast for the eyes.
Breguet Marine Chronograph
In the day of steel and precious metal sports chronographs dominating the market, it's nice to see something a bit different emerge. The Breguet Marine Chronograph is like a breath of fresh air. From the beautiful rose gold case to the stunning multi-textured dial and the black rubber band, the Breguet Marine Chronograph hits all the right notes. And you can probably get it under retail.
Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Ultra-Thin
Last but certainly not least is the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Ultra-Thin. Clad in pink gold and measuring 41mm across and 7.26mm in thickness, the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Ultra-Thin is the ultimate expression of luxury, simplicity and beauty. Can't go wrong with the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Ultra-Thin.
