It’s been a long time, but it looks like – maybe – we’re going to have a regular vacation this year. People will travel to see relatives and friends who have not seen them for almost two years, and if it sounds like you, have you chosen a watch to wear to see them?
Can we say a new watch dress? It is a surefire way to attract the attention of your mother-in-law, while at the same time doubling your ability to return to office in early 2022. We have collected our favorite watches available here. SEE Its Resources below, so read on to see them or head to HODINKEE Price on all of our existing precision watches.
The IWC sailboat dates back to 1939 when two watchmakers from Lisbon, Portugal, asked a Swiss manufacturer to produce an accurate water-chronometer clock in a large, 40mm wide box. As a result, the first ref. 325 IWC Portuguese was born. From the very beginning, the Portuguese has become one of the IWC’s best known collections and cornerstone. From simple timepieces such as timepieces to timeless calendars and chronographs, a consistent theme of hygiene design and a larger size than the average remains the entire collection period.
Introduced to the IWC team in 1998, IWC Portugieser Chronograph ref. The 3714 comes with a 41mm bag, a leather strap, and a small bezel design, which is not required for a surprisingly large size. The distinction has not changed since its inception, the clock has remained consistent with its original design and appearance. The only known departure from the original is 1998 and travel.
When it comes to modern vintage designs, few brands are highly valued for their efforts such as Jaeger-LeCoultre. Many of these are related to their passion not only for reviving their popular designs, but also for some of their oldest offerings. Here we have a watch at the end of these groups, with Master Memovox Reveil ref. 141.840.972.
For the first time in 2010, just before the introduction of vintage watches in the next decade, the model commemorated the 1950s with the introduction of the Memovox clock, re-translating the historical weapon clock into a modern template. . . The book guided what is now the Memovox alarms in the manual, but only temporarily distinguished itself from the purest killings, using “Reveil” (French “Awakening”) compared to “Memovox” on the dial, and the hard wallet, decorated with a symbol that protects its movement of the chiming caliber 918.
Patek Philippe Calatrava is one of the most recognizable artists of all time, with its members having their own unique moment, with a symbol of their light, dignified attire. Patek ref. 5196P-001 hit the index in 2004, and since its inception it has stood the test of time for the modern Calatrava line. Made of solid platinum, the most striking watch is best known for its white stripes, whose beauty is easily explained by what Patek accurately describes as “timeless, timeless perfection.”
Using 37mm pre-built construction, the case is very thin at 8 mm construction, and is easy to wear to arm size. Although it can slide under the cuff, it is hard not to appreciate what has been polished on a special stone, its smooth bezel rises well from the dial, with long straps and a simple crown reminiscent of the Calatrava heritage from the 1930s.
The two-tone silver ring follows the story, with a few seconds, a timeless arrangement, but one that is carefully enhanced in detail. Multi-color design is the most striking theme in its look, the gold accents used as its Breguet numbers add to the striking contrast. The slow-paced chords of running seconds are accompanied by a simple printed logo approaching 12 o’clock, long-sleeved leaf-shaped hands that slowly pass through the air for hours and minutes. The hand-painted Patek Philippe caliber 215PS provides a stable 44-hour dual watch, and the final mechanic is humbly hidden behind the unpainted platinum, which complements the well-known, high-end Calatrava.
Sometimes large clocks pass through a gap; ref. 17.0040.680 Elite from Zenith can be a very good example of that. Measuring 36mm in width with a curved, slim profile like this solid 18k rose gold and pretty sweet. The sleek fabric accentuates the size of the entire arm, by simply stepping on it and adding depth.
Rotating circles can be seen on the singing from its circular motion to the center right of the dauphine, with a pause to allow the ring to ring and sing for 9 seconds. The gold’s notes on this Vintage Elite are carefully enhanced and multi-colored with a 12 o’clock clock that impresses its design. Properly adapted to take advantage of the music design and the support window always 3 p.m. There is a complete sense of ancestry and heritage with the style of singing as well as the design that evokes the notable change in singing that is seen in ancient religions.
Metro violates NOMOS’s limited appeal to its requirements. The watch, designed by factory maker Mark Braun, offers a display of a power supply or a modern window in favor of simple simplicity. Its 38mm stainless steel is comfortable in the hand and its “urban gray” color is enhanced by ruthenium coatings.
With the exception of the two reading lines “NOMOS Glashütte” and “Made in Germany,” the words on the clock are preserved. Arabic minute notes in five minute increments revolve around the outside of the dial with green mint notes setting notes for three hours, six, 9, and 12 o’clock. The air-cooled watch is powered by an internal Alpha caliber.
IWC Portofino ref. IW4594-01 is undoubtedly one of the most reliable Portofino models of the modern era due to its close-up performance. Ref. IW4594-01 is directly related to the first Portofino developed by IWC (ref. 5251) for hours, minutes, seconds, and moonphase.
The 40mm stainless steel piece wants to make things as clean and dignified as possible, and just focus on providing the best value. The silver dial has a gold color combination as well as recognizable instantaneous page-map hands. The hour notes are usually shaped like a stick, while the 12 and 6 o’clock position prefers Roman numerals, which gives a subtle twist to the original pronunciation of Portofino.
