Top 7 Stylish Watches for Guys
Time does not wait for any one. More than showing the time watches has evolved into fine pieces of art forms. It is now a symbol of status, power and a tool for being cool. In certain areas of business circles people are often judged by their watches rather than their personal grooming. We at Good vies has spoken to various power players and their preferences of watches to be cool for 2017.
Here is the list of watches for guys for being cool in 2017
RADO Hyper chrome match point
A long-time sponsor and timekeeper at tennis tournaments, Rado made a further link to the game with the Hyper Chrome Match Point in 2015, since worn by world number one Andy Murray. Its 60-second and 30-minute sub-dials feature only the score digits used in a game (00, 15, 30, and 40), while the 12-hour counter is set atop a tennis-net mesh pattern. It’s match-durable, too, as Rado CEO Matthias Breschan explains: “It’s a classic chronograph, but with an unexpected dial design, and it’s crafted from contrasting matt and polished plasma high-tech ceramic, which mimics the appearance of metal while remaining tough and ultra scratch-resistant.” A backhand smash, if you will.
Bell & Ross BR 03-92
Horolum limited edition Form follows function was the mantra of the Bauhaus movement and it is to this design school that Bell & Ross nods by way of the clean lines of its BR 03-92 Horolum. An aviation watch where readability is pivotal, the Horolum keeps Bell & Ross’s characteristic “circle within a square” design while maximizing legibility by coating the dial and hands with SuperLuminova, the bright green lighting that illuminates runways. This ultra-phosphorescent 42mm cousin of the Horograph is limited to 500 pieces and will remain visible for hours in the darkest recesses, making it as appealing to devotees of the pre-war German school as fans of the ’80s post-punk band that took its name.
Audemars piguet Royal Oak Dual Time
When the Royal Oak launched in 1972, its steel case and unique shape broke luxury watch conventions. In production ever since, it’s the brand’s great success story, its many variations what AP UK CEO Jose Torrens calls “a physical representation of our identityand values”. The latest Dual Time iteration has a new brilliant blue dial and alligator strap, and a 39mm chassis resplendent with “Grande Tapisserie” pattern and white gold hour markers. “Although all our watches have been hand-assembled and finished in the same Swiss Jura mountain village for the past 142 years,” Torrens says, “the final product always represents the brand’s ageless spirit of independence.”
Tudor Pelagos Lhd
In a field that offers a paucity of genuine options for left-handed gentlemen, Tudor has proved a more generous brand than most. In the ’70s, it made a series of bespoke southpaw diving watches for French naval personnel and, last year, Tudor released a left-handed version of its titanium and steel Pelagos, moving the crown 180° to the opposite side of the watch, thus rendering it far more user-friendly when worn on the right wrist. Just like the original, the 42mm LHD is waterproof to a depth of 500m and boasts a helium escape valve, ensuring the Pelagos remains a bona fide divers’ classic, whichever way you choose to look at it.
Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 17 Panda Chronograph
So called because of its striking white (actually brushed silver) sub-dials staring out from a black face, and vice versa,Tag’s Carrera Calibre 17 Panda is a vintage’60s design reconfigured. On this new interpretation of the famed driving watch, those distinctive “eyes” are automatic chronographs with running seconds at 3o’clock and 30-second counters at 9 o’clock, beneath the famous logo emblazoned in red. It has a 41mm polished steel case, is scratchproof and waterproof to 100m, with double anti-reflective treatment. Yet despite being equipped for survival, and much like the namesake bear, the watches are rare beasts indeed; forming a limited-edition run of 500.
Omega Speedmaster Moonphase Master Chronometer
The Omega Speedmaster was the first watch worn on the moon, by Buzz Aldrin in 1969. Its new Moonphase iteration continues the relationship with a high-resolution depiction inset against the deep blue dial. “The detail is incredible. Everywhere are touches of exquisite craftsmanship,” says Omega CEO Raynald Aeschlimann. “The Speedmaster has a special connection with the moon but this model brings our space history to a new generation.” The watch incorporates Omega’s ultra-precise 9904 movement, though the Moonphase mechanism will only need adjusting once per decade. To do so require just a few turns of the crown, so you won’t need NASA training.
Bremont EJ Churchill Limited Edition
British watchmaker Bremont last year teamed up with another venerable brand, EJ Churchill, as the gunsmith marked its 125th anniversary. The fruit of these two specialists in precision manufacture is a limited-edition timepiece—125 in total, naturally—with a case of Damascus-style steel (once prevalent in gun barrels) featuring engravings that reference the markings on Churchill’s shotguns. Uniquely, there’s an inner rotating bezel that acts as a “bird counter” to record the shooter’s “bag”. However, we’ve found that far from being limited to certain gents in the field, the Bremont EJ Churchill’s meticulous design triggers covetous behavior in country and urban hotshots alike.
So there you go guys, be cool this year with these style settings. These are more than just watches. After all in this era of modern times, who really wants to know the time?
