Cartier Santos de Cartier
An icon of watchmaking for over a century, the Cartier Santos de Cartier is a remarkable timepiece and a true generational piece, highlighting the maison's stylistic approach to watchmaking.
I particularly like the contrast between the deep blue of the dial and the cool steel of the case, accentuated by the multiple finishing techniques applied.
Montblanc 1858 Geosphere
Montblanc's 1858 Geosphere is a stunning world-time complication that combines the durability of titanium and ceramic in a package that is wonderfully wearable and absolutely beautiful
The two domed globes surrounded by a 24-hour scale that indicates the day and night cap off what is a visceral treat.
Girard-Perregaux 1966 Automatic
The stunning sunray finished blue dial is like the proverbial cherry on top of what is the very appealing Girard-Perregaux 1966 Automatic. It's a classical dress watch that ties really nicely with the whole vibe of the 1966 collection.
This is a watch that you can very easily dress up or down, and it's one that I think makes for a wonderful all-rounder.
Ulysse Nardin Freak X
Contemporary, novel, avant-garde and wonderfully innovative, the pioneering Freak X is a pioneering effort from Ulysse Nardin. I love the rotating carousel and the super modern look of the case. This is more watch than you will ever need.
From the perspective of boldness, you really can't go wrong with the Ulysse Nardin Freak X, it's a timepiece that pays tribute to the complexities of the maison's past as well as looking forward to the future of watchmaking.
Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Automatic
Vacheron Constantin's Patrimony collection is one that is steeped with tradition, and it is one of the finest collections of dress watches in the world. This particular variation of the Patrimony Automatic features a pink gold case with a blue dial whose shade changes depending on its lighting environment.
From the slim hands to the long hour markers and the discreet date window, everything about the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Automatic screams timeless classicism.
Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe Limited Edition Chronograph
Just about as outside-the-box as it can get, the Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe Limited Edition Chronograph epitomises the notion of individuality. From the highly architectural look of the laser-cut dial to the streamlined tonneau-shaped titanium case and the bright blue through, the Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe Limited Edition Chronograph is certainly different.
And while different isn't always better, in the case of the stand-out Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe Limited Edition Chronograph it works entirely in the piece's favour and is clearly the focal point of the watch.
