The term ideal is a little esoteric in the world we live in. No one seems to be bothered about ideals anymore. It’s either about being cost effective. Some things, however, are still unchanged. Opinions in the luxury watch industry, for instance. Everyone has got one.
We asked our customers what their ‘ideal’ luxury watch looked like and the answers are fascinating. Well, fascinating enough to make you go “What?!”
What Does An Ideal Luxury Watch Look Like?
The concept of an ideal watch is a rather vague one. Whilst sounding very sanctimonious, it doesn’t really have to be. Here are a few results that we at Kapoor Watch Company thought would interest you.
We essentially divided our results
For people who like their coffee black and their breads buttered, there is a specific category of watches that suits their personality. These are the dreamers, the doers, the ones with a mission on hand.
Omega Speedmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer
The Omega Speedmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer is a new addition to the Swiss watchmaker’s catalogue. The Speedmaster, also known as the Moonwatch, is a fine automatic mechanical watch with an exceptional legacy of transcending boundaries in science and space exploration. Ideal, indeed.
The Breitling Chronomat is a huge icon in the world of mechanical watches. The timepiece was a beacon of hope and promise for the brand during a tough time during its history and that is exactly what it does for those who have it.
IWC Big Pilot’s Watch 43
Throughout time, the IWC has, quite successfully might I add, defined the very art of watchmaking. It has been a game changer many-a-time and the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch 43 is a great example. Class, boldness, and dependability, it has everything. An ideal luxury watch indeed.
These are the timepieces that represent those who are deeply grounded and know what their purpose in life is. We all crave to find purpose, don’t we? Well, these luxury timepieces are here to back that up.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is a cult-classic that has gained a massive following throughout the years. What makes it even more interesting is that it set the benchmark for the current generation of sports luxury watches. Ideal from all angles.
Patek Philippe Nautilus
Patek Philippe is a juggernaut in the Haute Horlogerie world. The Swiss watchmaker created the Nautilus to counter the Royal Oak. Well, whether it did or not is still up to speculation but what we can say for sure is that the watch has turned into an icon in the modern-day watch business. It has become more of a mythological entity that a watch, to be more accurate. Who wouldn’t say that this is their ideal watch?
Pasha de Cartier
This right here is a watch that has a bold as well as fascinating origin story. But that’s not why people choose to call it an ideal luxury watch. That part can credited to its classy finish, its flawless design execution, and its brilliant aura.
There is a third category too. This one belongs to those who dare to view the world from a different angle or a different perspective, so to speak.
Roger Dubuis Excalibre
The house of Roger Dubuis is truly full of surprises. If that is something of a hard-to-swallow pill, the Excalibre might help. The watch might not be your ‘ideal’ cup of tea. However, for a few, this is exactly what fits that frame.
The entire collection of Panerai Submersible is a perfect example of why we need innovation and the spirit of pushing boundaries in an industry such as luxury watchmaking. The timepieces in the series exceptional functionality and toughness.
Breitling Super Chronomat B01 44
The Breitling Super Chronomat, just like its sibling, the regular Chronomat, is a beast of a timepiece. The watch is a brilliant creation right out of the house of one of the most prominent ones to ever do it. The Breitling Super Chronomat is a watch of magnificence, tenacity, and sheer intelligence. No wonder, people called it an ideal timepiece.
