    New Watches: Top 4 Watches Released in 2020

    If one thing is for certain about 2020, it’s that it’s going to be a weird year for watches. Given the current landscape, many launches for brands such as Patek Philippe, Tudor and Rolex have been postponed until 2021. Thankfully, a few incredible new watches have already been released. Let’s take a look at 4 of the best new watches 2020 has revealed so far. While we’re certain that many other new watches will be introduced throughout the course of 2020, here are the best of the best as of early 2020. 1: Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition We’ve discussed the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition quite recently and still feel that it is arguably one of the most exciting new watches that has been released in 2020 so far. This addition to the Seamaster collection can be seen in the James Bond film, No Time to Die. The best—or worst depending on who you ask—part about the OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition is that it is part of a non-limited series. It’s water resistant up to 30 bars (1000 feet), shock resistant, has a built-in helium escape valve decompression system and has anti-magnetic properties. Omega Official Website   It is a slightly slimmer version of the standard 300M Diver and features a brown dial & a titanium mesh bracelet with an adjustable buckle. Inside this beautiful timepiece is the Co-Axial Master Chromometer 8806. 2: Seiko Black Series Limited Editions Seiko’s new watches released back in February and March can be classed as honorary members of our round-up of best black watches for men. Inspired by the ocean at nighttime, the Seiko Black Series Limited Editions is made up of the SLA035J1, SPB125J1 and the SSC761J1. The SLA035J1, released in March 2020, is water-resistant up to 300 meters and features the 8L35 movement. It has a black, red & white design with Lumibrite on its hands, bezel & index to ensure it can be ready in the dark depths of the sea. Only 600 have been made. Seiko Official Website   The SPB125J1 and SSC761J1 were both released in February. The SPB125J1 is an automatic with a 6R35 caliber and features a black & orange color scheme. 7,000 have been made. The SSC761J1 features a solar movement and a V192 caliber & has a black, red & orange color scheme. Only 3,500 have been made. Both new watches are water-resistant up to 200 meters and feature Lumibrite on its hands & indexes. 3: Vacheron Constantin Égérie Moon Phase Jewelry If you ever wondered what a watch with more than 1,300 diamonds would look like, look no further than the Égérie Moon Phase Jewelry from Vacheron Constantin. Released in late March, this striking timepiece features 1,345 diamonds and is constructed from 18k white gold. It is a non-limited edition and is just one of Vacheron Constantin’s many, many diamond watches. Vacheron-Constantin Official Website   The Égérie Moon Phase Jewelry features a 1088L caliber and is an automatic watch. It is water-resistant up to 30 meters and its design consists of: A 246-diamond adorned 18k white gold case An 18k white gold dial set with 510 diamonds 18k white gold bracelet that is covered in diamonds We’ll be the first to admit that this watch is far more pretty than it is practical, but we do admire Vacheron Constantin’s effort to attract more female customers while proudly showing off their phenomenal craftsmanship. 4: Hublot Big Bang MP-11 Red Magic Released in January, this beautiful bad boy is the latest addition to the Hublot Big Bang Collection. The Hublot Big Bang MP-11 Red Magic is a striking timepiece of which there are only 100 pieces available. It features a HUB9011 caliber and has a 14-day power reserve. The MP-11 Red Magic has a polished red titanium case, a sapphire crystal dial, and a textured black rubber strap. It is water-resistant up to 30 meters and reminds fans of a Ferrari engine. Hublot Official Website   It is one of the best and most beautiful high-tech ceramic watches. Partly because most ceramic watches are black or white in color while this daring design is a bold red one. Final Thoughts And there you have it: the four watches released in 2020 you should know about. And there are many new watches you should keep watch for including the Chanel J12 X-Ray and the TAG Heuer Carrera 160 Years Silver Limited Edition. Whether you simply want to keep up to date with recent watch releases and news or are updating your wish list to include the latest models on the market is up to you. What do you think about these watches? Were they worth the wait or will you be watching to see what else 2020 brings with it?

    Top Men’s Oversized Watches

    Men’s oversized watches are nothing new. In fact, there are watch snobs out there who disregard them as something old. Novelties from the 90s and early 2000s that are best left in the past with oversized jeans and sweater vests. And yes, we were inundated by big face watches back in the day, but things have since settled down. Today’s men’s oversized watches know how to put that extra real estate to good use. Let’s take a look at some of the best ones out there. 1: Hublot Big Bang Unico Another amazing watch that puts “big” in its name so there’s no mistake as to what it’s all about, the Hublot Big Bang comes in at a swaggering 45mm. You could go down to a 42mm when shopping for your Unico, but why would you? It’s a Hublot, worn to grab attention. But with some sophisticated style. Yeah, put a Hublot Unico on a structured rubber strap and you’re ready for an active weekend. On a link bracelet, it wears well at the office. And with the right leather strap, you can even pull off a more formal look. Hublot Big Bang Unico Buy Hublot Big Bang Watches 2: Shinola Runwell It may be big and bold, but the Shinola Runwell still embraces classic style. Yes, the 47mm size is likely to grab some attention. But it’s still an understated timepiece, some might even say with a minimalist lean that’s similar to a lot of the great timepieces that have been coming out of the German Glashütte camp lately. But of course, Shinola is American made and Detroit proud, and another watch that dresses up wonderfully on a fine leather strap to give it a pedigreed vibe that downplays its brash dimensions. Source from Shinola3: Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph But sometimes a big bezel is kind of awesome. And if it’s done in eye-catching orange all the better. That’s the case with the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph, at least with two of the references in the current line. At 45.5mm it’s not the biggest, but it certainly wears big and bold when you go for vibrant color on the bezel. There’s a lot happening on the big face, with a date window, a small second’s dial at nine o’clock and an hour counter dial at the three o’clock position. But Omega is brilliant at packing in a lot of information without the watch ever feeling overloaded, sticking to midnight black or dark blue dials with white indices. Buy Omega Seamaster Watches 4: IWC Big Pilot Heritage If you are in the market for a big face watch, Google will probably lead you to the IWC Big Pilot pretty quickly. It does have “big” in the name! And at 46.2mm, it is big. But its simplicity belies its size and gives it an air of understatement. Forget about a rotating bezel or a chronograph subdial. Keep the hands and indices simple, and the face takes a just-the-facts attitude with time, date, and a power reserve indicator. True to form, pilot watches were originally intended for a pilot to get information at a glance. The Big Pilot offers just that with elegance and sophistication. And utility! Even the conical crown is big so you can adjust it while wearing gloves, a problem that pilots of old must have faced. IWC Big Pilot Buy IWC Pilot Watches 5: Breitling Navitimer Super 8 Speaking of eye-catching bezels, Breitling Navitimer gives us one seriously big watch with the Super 8. While its case measures 46mm, we get to 50mm when you include the bidirectional rotating bezel. The oversized timepiece is a homage to Breitlings used by pilots during World War II, when size literally mattered because those watches were designed to be worn on the thigh. True to the at-a-glance needs of pilots in action, the Super 8 is available in bare-bones-style on the face, with nothing more than hour, minute, and seconds hands pointing to ample Arabic numerals. source from here Buy Breitling Navtimer Watches 6: Citizen Promaster Aqualand 200M  But who says a busy dial is always a bad thing? Look to Citizen Promaster Aqualand, stamped with a dizzying number of dashes, dots and lines that just might give you visual vertigo if you look at it too long. With a diameter of 53mm, it’s a big watch that cries out for attention. It’s built for some serious undersea action, water-resistant up to 200 meters with a 70-meter depth display. And the black polyurethane strap is plenty sturdy. But what most watch lovers will probably like about this attention-getting timepiece is that it just looks really cool! Source from Amazon Buy Citizen Promaster Watches 7: Casio G-Shock Blackout They don’t call it “The King” for nothing! Coming in at a sliver under 58mm, the Casio G-Shock GX-56BB Blackout takes the “shock” in its name quite literally with a big statement on your wrist. As it’s a G-Shock it’s pretty tough, shock-resistant, water-resistant to 200 meters, and resistant to magnetics. It’s also solar-powered and has a triple-layered construction to add to its toughness. Casio G-Shock Blackout Buy Casio G-Shock Watches Of course, this is all a matter of taste and personal preference. You can go with a nice dress watch at 38mm and most likely nobody will think twice about its size. But maybe you do want people to look twice and check out that timepiece you’re sporting on your wrist. If that’s the case, consider going big with an oversized watch.

  5. Closer Look At the Hublot Big Bang Watch

    Closer Look At the Hublot Big Bang Watch

    Hublot is a relatively new brand and was founded in 1980. Despite its young age, it enjoys a great reputation among wristwatch enthusiasts around the world and commands respect from the young and the old alike. One of the reasons for its popularity is the Hublot Big Bang watch series, which was launched in 2005. At its launch, the striking similarities between the new watch and the classic 1980 original Hublot were evident. The enthusiasts among us will immediately recognize the classic porthole design that consists of H shaped screws lying exposed around the bezel. But for those who haven’t heard much about Hublot watches, we decided to take a deeper look at the Hublot Big Bang series. The Case The Art of Fusion – that’s how Hublot started its brand identity and the philosophy has carried on to the wristwatches of today. Using steel, rubber and ceramic were revolutionary back when the Hublot Big Bang was launched. The feeling and outlook of the texture will leave anyone admiring the watch in a trance. It is that good! The Dial The miracle of the case continues in the dial as well but what sets the watches apart is the carbon fiber in a woven pattern sitting proudly on the dial. The contrasting hands and numerals ensure the primary function of the watch – telling the time – isn’t lost. This combination of artistic brilliance and perfect functionality is truly a sight to behold. The Strap A rubber strap is probably not the most impressive thing in the world but Hublot wasn’t going to put in an ordinary material and not make it look brilliant. The strap stands out because of its diamond tread-like pattern and the hooded lugs. The lugs are hidden which gives the impression that the watch is a single piece from one end to the other. (Also, the watch comes with other watch strap options as well.) The Movement We now move to the heart of the watch, its movement. Initially, the Hublot Big Bang was utilizing a modified version of the famous Valjoux 7750 movement. However, later models moved on to the Calibre 4100 which is an even more impressive movement. The quality of the movement isn’t really an issue here. Some people do believe that not using an in-house movement sort of kills the whole point of having a unique Hublot watch but creating in-house movements isn’t easy and many brands have successfully released legendary wristwatch models without putting in any in-house movement. Hublot has done the hard work and also released watches with its inhouse movement so there is something for everybody here and we don’t necessarily need to fight over it. Let’s just savor the beauty, shall we? How Much Are These Worth? Now we come to the money part. Hublot Big Bang watches are expensive. Stating the obvious, isn’t it? They range from a few thousand dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars. However, it is not just the monetary value but also the emotional value attached to the watch for the owner. Now that’s not everybody’s piece of cake but those that do savor the art, dish out the money to get their hands on it too. Looking at it purely from the financial perspective, those wristwatches that have the original box as well as the original paperwork with them usually sell for very good prices and retain their value. If you have a rare model, you can expect to fetch some very good money for it down the road. Beware of Fakes! As is the case with many luxury items, Hublot watches are also prone to being faked. And since there are so many watches of the Hublot Bing Bang series out there, it’s hard to find a standard guide that tells you how to spot a fake one. Having said that, you can stay alert and avoid any potential fraud by keeping the following points in mind. These points are typical mistakes you can spot in fake watches: Even though selling fake items is illegal, it not illegal if the product has a different name. This difference is often achieved with the help of a small spelling adjustment in the hope that the end-user won’t notice it. A typical example includes printing “Hudlot” on the watch instead of “Hublot.” Missing authenticity certificate No “H” shaped screws on the watch. These screws are typical of original Hublot watches. Manufacturing defects. To the trained eye, manufacturing differences will be very obvious. However, some may have to look very closely for hints like visible glue or different shades of colors instead of the ones Hublot uses. Buy Hublot Big Bang Watches Conclusion The best way is to simply buy from trusted and authorized dealers. You can also bring your watch to Hublot experts at any time and have them authenticate it for you. To sum it up, the Hublot Big Bang is a series worth owning, irrespective of whether you’re a fashion fan or just a serious wristwatch collector. Hublot won’t disappoint you.

  6. Hublot Watches: Top 3 Collections

    Hublot Watches: Top 3 Collections

    Many collectors consider Hublot watches to be one of the flashier brands on the market, and it is no mystery why. This brand is very heavy-handed with its marketing, books some of the top ambassadors in the world, and is unapologetic about everything they do. One interesting thing about this brand is that they don’t have many collections. Instead, they only create a few kinds of watches, but those models tend to sell incredibly well. I go through the best of them in the following passages. Big Bang The Big Bang is the watch that took Hublot from a relatively unknown brand to one of the most famous in the world. It’s most recognizable feature is the masculine and industrial aesthetic energy that it exudes. This collection reminds me of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Philippe Nautilus in the way it looks, which is fantastic company to keep. While many watches in the current market look like the Big Bang, most of them were in response to Hublot’s masterpiece. The Big Bang is one of the few collections to really change the nature of the watch market. Another big selling point of the Big Bang collection is just how many options there are inside of it. If you take a look through their catalog, you’ll find models with eye-catching color schemes, diamonds encrusted on the case, tourbillons, strange designs, and everything in between. Hublot seems to have gone all in on the Big Bang, and fans of the brand are absolutely loving it. Lastly, despite its masculine aesthetic, Hublot watches offers some options for women, too. They are smaller, have lighter color schemes, and many are bejeweled in a feminine style. Hublot has created a Big Bang for just about everyone, so I definitely recommend taking a quick look through the various options that they offer. Classic Fusion Let’s get one thing straight: Hublot doesn’t create any products that are affordable or modest. That being said, the Classic Fusion collection is a bit more accessible and humble than all of the others. They are smaller, have less crowded dials, and tend to not have chronograph complications. Additionally, this collections uses luxurious leather straps, while the Big Bang is more likely to use rubber. While the Classic Fusion collection is less eye-catching than the rest of the Hublot catalog, many consumers out there will prefer it. Not everyone wants the biggest, flashiest, and most robust option. Instead, plenty of collectors will look for a more toned down Hublot. If you fit into that category, then the Classic Fusion is likely your best option. I would check out the “Classic Fusions” first because their designs and color schemes have the most mainstream appeal. People that choose the Classic Fusion generally want the name “Hublot” on their wrist, but don’t want to pay exorbitant prices to get it there. Don’t think that it is a bad option just because it is more affordable, though. These models are actually very impressive and would make for an excellent addition to your collection. Spirit of Big Bang The Spirit of Big Bang collection has a novel shape, surprising color combinations, and interesting materials. You’ll have tons of options for how unique you’d like your watch to look. At one of the spectrum, you can choose somewhat traditional colors and aesthetics. On the other, you can pick something entirely different. One example is the Blue Sapphire, which has a case that is entirely made out of sapphire crystal. Overall, the Spirit of Big Bang is a logical evolution of the collection it is named after. It brings the same creativity and aesthetic to a new shape, and you might find that you prefer it to its predecessor. Given that the craftsmanship and movements of all of these watches are similar, you can use looks to choose between the Big Band and the Spirit of the Big Bang. Conclusion Though they are one of the more polarizing brands in the watch world, Hublot watches has a cult following among a significant portion of collectors. If you want to know which collection is likely the best choice, I would say it is the Big Bang. These watches are absolute classics, have a fantastic look, and give off a vibe that many people love. Those of you who are more unconventional might go with the Spirit of Big Bang, MP, or Novelty collections. No matter what, though, you’ll be getting an excellent watch that is sure to turn heads.

  8. Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas: 7 Watches to Gift

    Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas: 7 Watches to Gift

    Looking for Valentine’s Day gift ideas? Nothing says your love will last the test of time like a fine watch. A luxury timepiece declares commitment and that you’re in this for the long haul. It symbolizes that your love will last as long as the special watch (that could be gifted to future generations). But Valentine’s Day is also about romance and rekindling those warm feelings that brought you together. Here are watches that say both: you have my everlasting love and my immediate passion.   Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas: Watches for Her 1: Vanguard Heart Skeleton by Franck Muller A masterwork of femininity that also exudes a masculine side, Franck Muller captures the Valentine’s Day spirit with its Vanguard Heart Skeleton collection. While the bold shape may lend itself more to men’s watches, the refined contours and slender sizes of 32 mm and 35 mm are perfectly paired to her wrist. True to their name, Vanguard Heart Skeletons have sculpted hearts that form bridges over their skeletonize movements with openwork dials. Small hour, minute and second hands add delicate touches to the innovative designs that leave no doubt that you’re a romantic at heart! View this post on Instagram Vanguard Lady Color Dreams Hearts Skeleton @franckmuller_asia @franckmuller_geneve #vanguardlady #franckmullervanguard #skeletonwatches #wphh2018 #novelties A post shared by Sherry (@sher1008) on Jan 18, 2018 at 4:35pm PST 2: Urwerk’s UR-106 Flower Power Sure, hearts say “I love you” in the most obvious of ways. But diamonds have a bigger impact. And we’re talking about a lot of diamonds! Urwerk’s UR-106 Flower Power packs in a whopping 239 Wesselton diamonds for a total of 2.53 carats. A dazzling gift for Valentine’s Day, precious stones form an elegant lotus flower at the center of the face with delicate petals that ingeniously fit between rotating hour satellites. Three smaller diamond-set flowers surround the main floret to complete the glittering motif that you might want to view while wearing sunglasses. If the diamond overload doesn’t show where your heart is, the price tag surely will. At a cost of over $100,000, no one will ever question your dedication to the relationship!

Shop online for the first model in the line that debuted in 2013. Tailor made for Valentine’s Day, the original incarnation from Rolex’s sister brand features a Tudor Rose at its center. A time-honored symbol of England that originates from the House of Tudor, the rose design also served as the logo for Tudor watches in the 1950s. The flower on the face of the Clair de Rose also functions as a handy seconds indicator, making a full revolution once a minute.    View this post on Instagram – TUDOR CLAIR DE ROSE – Cantik kan jam ni.!?

While some guys go for diamonds, hearts and flowers –  basic black is often considered sexy too. Add in blue to make it all the more romantic. Specifically, the famous blue gift box from Tiffany that says you really care. And there’s probably no watch in the Tiffany line that pays homage to the store’s famed gifts than the Atlas. Debuted in the 1980s, Atlas watches are a nod to the statue of Atlas bearing a four-foot-wide clock that has stood sentry at Tiffany’s flagship New York City store since 1853. Atlas timepieces feature the same Roman numerals that grace the antique clock. Consider a model with a black face and silver numerals for a simple yet sophisticated Valentine’s gift that’s the pitch-perfect accessory for a romantic night out. View this post on Instagram #tiffanyatlas A post shared by Золотые кольца, часы и серьги (@items_gold) on Aug 28, 2017 at 11:03am PDT 5: A Vintage Omega Seamaster A favorite of James Bond, there’s arguably no sexier timepiece in the world than the Omega Seamaster.

  9. 7 Clear Watches You’ve Got to See

    7 Clear Watches You’ve Got to See

    Anybody who understands the timepiece industry will tell you that it is currently growing at an incredible rate. While watches were once reserved for luxury buyers, it is now accessible to anybody due to the development of the affordable, new and mid-tier price ranges! One of the latest growing watch trends are clear watches. Have you seen them? An additional benefit of this growing market is new and exciting designs hitting the store shelves. These aren’t your typical watches anymore. Below, we present and go over some of our favorite clear watches on the market today. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re looking for something more luxurious clear watch or something more casual! 1: Greubel Forsey Double Tourbillon 30º Technique Sapphire Greubel Forsey is a name that maybe most casual watch fans will not know, but is respected by those that study Swiss luxury. This particular model has two features that set it apart from typical pieces. First is a tourbillon, which is an advanced mechanism that manufacturers incorporate in some incredibly expensive automatic watches that prevents them from losing or gaining seconds due to changes in position or gravity. The second thing that makes this watch unique is its clear sapphire surroundings. This one is crafted from the same expensive glass that luxury timepieces use to house their dials. 2: Hublot Big Bang Unico Sapphire Our second pick is a masterpiece from the acclaimed luxury brand, Hublot. While most watches come with some transparent elements, this piece manages to be clear throughout. It has a sapphire casing and a smokey rubber strap. The only metal pieces are a few screws that hold the housing together. As far as the movement of the watch, this piece features complex inner workings, a chronograph, and a beautiful presentation that you can see from every angle through the clear outer casing. 3: MB&F Horological Machine No. 6 SV Back in 2014, MB&F created a groundbreaking timepiece called the “HM 6 Space Pirate.” The watch community loved it because of its original, fascinating, and unique design. A few years later, they came out with the Horological Machine No. 6 SV, which is essentially the same watch but with a clear, sapphire exterior. For capabilities, it has a tourbillon, turbines to decrease air friction, and retracted titanium shield that can be utilized at any time. If you’re in love with this piece, we have some bad news. Unfortunately, it had a limited release, and only 20 of them were produced. 4: Richard Mille RM 07-02 Pink Lady Sapphire Automatic Though Richard Mille seems to be more popular with men, it also has a women’s line that is every bit as beautiful and well-made. One piece that backs up that assertion is the RM 07-02, which comes in clear, pink sapphire. An additional perk of choosing this piece is the two rows of diamonds that surround its dial. This timepiece is an excellent choice for someone who has a big chunk of money to spend on a luxury option. 5: Casio Baby-G Semi-Transparent Women’s Sports Watch Now, let’s delve into some cheaper options for those of you looking in a more affordable price range. First is this piece from Casio, which has a silicone exterior and a digital dial. Given that it is made by one of the most resilient watch brands out there, you can count on long-term functionality and the ability to outlast extreme conditions. 6: Stuhrling Original Men’s 976.02 This Stuhrling watch is perfect for anybody trying to balance class and price. Instead of it being made from silicone, like other affordable options, it has a glass dial. Also, the inside of the piece is very minimalistic, which lets you see right through it rather than having a crowded view. Overall, it is a good-looking piece with transparent elements that should charm you! 7: Armitron Sport Women’s 45/7051 Digital Jelly Strap Watch Our most affordable option is this piece from Armitron. It features a quartz movement, digital display, “jelly strap,” and water resistance up to 100 meters. This is an excellent option for those of you that want a simple, everyday piece that you don’t need to worry about. Additionally, it is great for athletes that swim, run, or bike in rugged conditions! 8: Nixon Time Teller P Translucent Watch Nixon is a favorite among the younger generations due to their minimalistic designs and relatively low prices. This is the one clear watch that they carry, and it is very pleasing to the eye. In addition, it also has a rainbow designs feature on the outside of the dial. That can help bring a bit of color (if that’s what you’re looking for) to the otherwise translucent casing. Now that you’ve seen some of options for clear watches on the market, it is up to you to decide whether or not you it is the type of watch for you. Even if you’re usually more of a classic watch fan, a clear one can add a bit of fun to your collection.  To those that like the modern look of transparent pieces, we hope we gave you some inspiration!

  10. Statement Watches: What Your Timepiece Says

    Statement Watches: What Your Timepiece Says

    Looking for a watch that speaks for itself? Statement watches do just that. Putting a watch on your wrist has a larger impact than a simple fashion accessory. The world sees the timepiece that you choose to wear so make sure it represents you. The Mixed Messages of Rolex Welcome to the complicated world of Rolex. The iconic brand often sends differing and even conflicting messages. While a Rolex exudes a sense of sophistication and success, it also risks looking like overcompensation. Like the mid-life crisis decision to go out and buy a flashy sports car, you may look like you are trying too hard to impress. It depends on what you wear and how you wear it. A Rolex Submariner is a show of masculinity. Made famous by rugged movie icons from Steve McQueen to James Bond, the Submariner is a time-honored style statement that inevitably comes with a touch of testosterone. It’s a sports watch for the well-heeled, worn with a custom-tailored suit as easily as with a casual-chic ensemble that says your conservative side seamlessly blends with a bold desire for exploration. Flashier Rolex models offer quite different messaging. Sporting a gold Yacht Master indicates you want to be seen as you cruise around town in your sure-to-get-noticed luxury car. A steel Rolex Datejust flips that script, telling the world that you appreciate elegance but also value functionality and downplay the need for attention. A Rolex Daytona is all about action. Like the world of high-end racing that inspired the classic watch, you like a fast lifestyle filled with glamorous people and have the cash to keep the adventure going. “Sporty But Still Practical” While titans of business and fashion-forward watch aficionados may gravitate to Rolex, lovers of active lifestyles lean more toward Omega. A classic Omega Speedmaster offers luxury and durability that says you’re equally at home on the golf course or hiking the Himalayas. You’ve chosen a luxury timepiece that can take a few bumps and hold up to get passed down as a family heirloom. You’re precise, dependable and have a sense of upscale style. Your watch should be the same. “Well Rounded and Appreciate Understatement” While it may cost as much as a Rolex, an IWC is much less known and not as likely to get recognized as a pricey timepiece. And that’s a good thing! Someone who wears an IWC Portugieser showcases their exquisite taste with no need to show it off to the world. Other like-minded people will appreciate the classic Swiss watch. An IWC shows you are comfortable in your achievements and need not be defined by your watch. With the elegance of a Patek Phillippe, upscale vibe of a Rolex and boldness of a Breitling, an IWC can go with a sharp suit or sporty weekend wear with equal ease. “Trendy” Slipping a splashy Hublot Big Bang or bold-faced TAG Heuer on your wrist tells the world you’ve come to have a good time and want to be seen doing it. You’re given to forward-fashion style with sleeves rolled up to convey both a vibe of laid-back luxury and to show off your timepiece. Larger models made of precious metals with brash faces tell all you’re successful and you want them to know it. You may not be begging for attention but that watch you are flashing is sure to get some. “Up for Adventure” Want to let the world know you’re ready to shove off and discover new lands? Slip on a Panerai Luminor. Developed for special forces in the Italian Navy, Panerai is both durable and dripping with a sense of Old World style. You like your suits well cut, steaks rare and could be heading off to skydive or scuba along exotic shores at a moment’s notice. Breitling is another brand that tells the world that adventure is at hand. “I’ve Made It” Putting one of the world’s most-expensive watches on your wrist broadcasts an unmistakable message that you breathe the rare air of the ultra-successful. But you need not be uptight about it. The classic design of a Patek Philippe Nautilus gives off a sense of simple elegance with just a hint of a sporty side. You may be among the world’s elite with an appreciation for life’s finer things but don’t make a big show of it. Why go bold on your wrist when your success speaks for itself? But the most important element in the message you send the world is you. Statement watches will help you out with that. Stay true to a sense of style that matches how you feel and how both you and your watch are perceived will follow.

  11. Watch Guide: Answers to Common Hublot Watch Questions

    Watch Guide: Answers to Common Hublot Watch Questions

    Known for taking the Chrono world by storm with the release of the first watch with a rubber bracelet, a Hublot watch packs a punch despite coming from humble beginnings. The company started out rather late in the year 1980, but it’s been active ever since then. Having said all of this, you must have Hublot watch questions if you’ve stuck around through the hype so far! So, what we’ve done is compile the most popular questions that we have found about Hublot. They include some from other watch enthusiasts that we know. And we’ve answered them all. 1: Are Hublot watches battery-operated? Like most luxury brands, Hublot watches have a few quartz models of popular lines like Classic Fusion. Nonetheless, the brand itself is still majorly a maker of automatic watches (self-winding from the user’s kinetics). From there, we can say the automatic watches are the better in terms of investment due to the high demands. But if you’re only interested in watches with considerable performance, the battery-operated watches are your next bet. View this post on Instagram Sharing is caring. Tag a friend who would love to wear these timepieces this summer. A post shared by Hublot (@hublot) on Aug 1, 2018 at 11:06pm PDT 2: Can Hublot watches substitute as investments? Here, the question of whether or not Hublot watches are well made comes up. To answer that, the obvious route to take is to make a comparison with a watch manufacturer like Rolex or Patek Philippe. In any of those two Giants, they make all their parts down to the heart itself, the movements in-house. This means a large labor force filled with gemologists, scientists, and engineers to manufacture and even improve all of these parts. As a result of all this, watches made by Rolex and Patek Philippe are gratified as two of the best you can buy in terms of sophistication and style. If you ask the question of whether or not the two (Rolex and Patel Philippe) can be considered good investments, this is their individual positive answer. Sadly, the same thing can’t be said about Hublot. Many watch aficionados (including us) share a spoken/well-debated argument that Hublots lack the level of craftsmanship shown by those two. Not because of lack of money, but because of a lack of innovative designs. Facts that back up this reasoning is that Hublot unveiled their first major in-house movement, the UNICO in 2010, while Rolex introduced its own in-house movement in 2000. With these points made, now consider the fact that Hublot watches are expensive and this may not be what you were hoping to hear. Still, it’s far better to know now. Especially if you were planning on investing in a few Hublot timepieces. *Note: Another perspective is that most watch enthusiasts know of these facts which seriously affects the resale value.

A post shared by Hublot (@hublot) on Jul 17, 2018 at 5:32am PDT 3: Will Hublot watches keep up with fashion in time? Watches are objects that are lauded for their long-term use. They are also items that people expect to have perfect scores in both looks and performance. With the former, you’ll have to accept that ‘Looks’ essentially means how good they’ll look on your wrist. And the answer to that is a bold ‘Yes.’ Hublot timepieces will keep up with fashion trends due to their circular bezels. If the brand has ever been known for anything, it’s the fact that they make some of the most fashionable watches that money can buy. Kind of like Tudor, they experiment with the parts that make up their watches. One that we can note down is ‘Magic Gold’—Hublot’s favorite and secret ingredient. The material is a mixture of gold and ceramics. After which, the result of the mix is a pseudo-metal with the best characteristics of the parent ingredients.

It’s one of their most popular collections so we think it’s safe to assume that you might be reading this because of the watch. If not, you can still apply this to literally any of their watches. View this post on Instagram Gold and Blue, always a powerful combination! #BigBangBlue A post shared by Hublot (@hublot) on May 10, 2018 at 11:10pm PDT If you want to authenticate a Hublot Big Bang watch, one quick process is to check the date display. The left edge of the box should be curved, but if that part isn’t satisfied, the number (date) itself must be centered at the very least. Follow up by checking if the watch uses an H-screw. If the watch is still around at this point, finalize your evaluation by making sure all the tags/names like “Hublot” or “Hublot Geneve” are engraved. *Note: None of these checks are fool-proof. The only guaranteed method is to buy from a reputable store. Our Final Thoughts We used our knowledge and experience so far with the company to answer all of the questions above. So, they’re completely unbiased and will act as a guide for any decision relating to Hublot.
