Yesterday we discussed the watches that most astounded us at SIHH and today we have gathered together our #1 regular watches. These reach from the cheap to the more costly, from steel to platinum. Right away, here are our picks for the best regular watches.
Cara Barrett – Cartier Tank Cintrée In Platinum
One of my #1 watches from the show this year was the Cartier Tank Cintrée threesome in pink or yellow gold and platinum . I’ve generally had a weakness for the Cintrée and now it is back with an advanced case and manual-twisting development in three unique metals. The cost on this watch goes from $20,000 to $23,000 which is expensive for a regular watch (in any event, for me) and tragically I favor the platinum variant with ruby-set crown which is the most costly of the bundle. Yet, on the off chance that I am as a rule absolutely fair this is an exemplary watch that I would positively wear regular and gold will in general be excessively delicate for ordinary wear which is the reason I would go with the platinum. Presently if just cash became on trees…
$20,400 (pink gold or yellow gold), $23,500 (platinum); cartier.com
Jon Bues – Panerai Luminor Base Logo 3 Days Acciaio
The Panerai Luminor Base Logo 3 Days Acciaio on the left.
I’ve consistently delighted in the tasteful of a Panerai Luminor. The way that the company broke out from its overall haziness as a maritime provider to become perhaps the most well known extravagance watch brands of late time owes parcels to a triumphant plan, I think. The Luminor Base Logo is a straightforward watch for Panerai. It stands apart as one of the most flawlessly awesome qualities to be had at SIHH. Here we have an incredible looking Panerai watch with a hand-twisted in-house P.6000 type with three days of force save, and it costs just $4,750.
Jack Forster – Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic COSC
The Clifton Baumatic COSC is a consistently watch furiously. It’s quite possibly the most intriguing deliveries from Baume & Mercier in some time: a COSC ensured self-twisting chronometer with a five-day power hold and a plan that makes it perhaps the most flexible watches we saw at the SIHH. Measurements and extents, just as generally speaking plan and fantastic intelligibility, make it a genuine go-anyplace watch and the way that it’s been explicitly designed for longer stretches between administrations is good to beat all/p>
Stephen Pulvirent – Cartier Drive Extra-Flat In Yellow Gold
Yeah, I’m picking a yellow gold watch for my top regular arrival of SIHH 2018. I was a devotee of the Drive Extra-Flat when it was delivered a year ago in pink and white gold, and my adoration for the thin, formed Cartier possibly developed when I saw it in both steel and yellow gold a week ago. Picking between the two new metals is no simple errand ( as I’ve said previously ), in any case the warm gold case enhances the vintage look and feels perfectly to me. I genuinely needn’t bother with something constructed like a tank for my everyday and I think this is one that would carry a grin to my face each time I lashed it on. What more would you be able to request than that?
Ben Clymer – Audemars Piguet Royal Oak "Jumbo" Extra-Thin In Titanium And Platinum
The reference 15202 (née 14802, née 5402) AP Jumbo, in any metal truly, is kinda the best watch on the planet. Or if nothing else top three. I’ve accepted so for as far back as I can recollect. Or on the other hand, at any rate since I purchased my first, in 2010 . The slim profile, the “on the off chance that we should have a date than in any event make it like this” date window, the mind boggling history, the fluctuated significant degrees of case completing, and extreme wearability make the Jumbo pretty much awesome. And keeping in mind that there was nothing amiss with the 15202ST, why not have a great time and play with titanium and platinum ? Titanium is light and hard, platinum is delicate and gleaming. AP has a background marked by blending metals and this is an exceptional very good quality consistently watch that adds a portion of exceptionalness to a watch we find in the watch community often.
