Even though we now live in a world that other devices can now tell the time as well, traditional watches still hold a place on your wrist regardless. There are so many reasons why you’d want to invest in a good watch. For one, they add instant style points no matter what you are wearing. Second, it helps you tell the time and it is much more convenient at that than whipping out your mobile phone from your pocket, among a whole list of other reasons.
If you are going to buy a luxury watch, there are a couple of key points that you need to remember. First is that you can never go wrong with a Swiss watch. Rolex, Patek Philippe, Omega, and others are always worthy watch investments.
The second is that you must look at the watch lugs and make sure that it doesn’t have any sharp edges. Sharp watch lugs are a sign of poor craftsmanship and should be avoided at all times.
Also, make sure that your watch has some level of water resistance or at least it is water-resistant for 50 meters. Even though you are not generally going to swim that far, the fact that it can be used underwater makes the watch an appealing accessory to use when swimming.
With those things out of the way, here are some of my watch recommendations of 2019:
The company’s Royal Oak line is the world’s first steel-cased luxury sports watch in the world. If you are into that kind of accessory, then I highly recommend that you look at Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches.
Ball Watch Co
Another brand that you can trust when it comes to sturdy watches, Ball Watch Co has an interesting advertising scheme where they will first introduce their watches on their own Facebook page. People can then preorder their watches from the product page itself and I have to say that it is actually working in their favor.
Anyway, there are many watches that you can try from this brand. One is the Engineer Master II Diver TMT as it has been deemed by GQ as one of the best divers watch of 2018.
Baume & Mercier
This company makes one of the sexiest chronograph watches in existence. Look at their Clifton Club Burt Munro Tribute watch and tell me if that isn’t sexy.
The company since had a new boss in Georges Kern back in 2017. Along with his renowned vigor and focus come new endorsers and products. I suggest that you take a look at the Navitimer 8 Super 8 B20. It has a unidirectional bezel that kind of hangs over the main case. The watch is also filled with Lume that is perfect for pitch-black scenarios.
