When you ask people about their favourite watch, there is a really high chance that the answer will lie somewhere between a Rolex, an Omega, or an Audemars Piguet. There might be a Breitling or Hublot here and there but you get the point. The world of luxury watches is a fascination that has found its deserving place in the hearts of people. What makes a watch even more interesting these days is the ‘Swiss Made’ moniker right on its face. These two words might not seem much at first, but they hold a great degree of importance for many.
Best Luxury Watches For Men In 2020
Here is a list of 5 of the most revered Swiss luxury watches for men. These are timepieces that you as a learned watch enthusiast should know about.
Hublot Big Bang Ref. 451.NX.1170.NX
When we talk about Hublot, we don’t just refer to the Swiss watchmaker that created the concept of ‘art of fusion’. Instead, we are referring to the pioneer of avant-garde timepieces in the history of luxury watches. The master time crafter is nothing short of a magician when it comes to making masterpieces out of thin air.
The Hublot Big Bang Integral Titanium is an apt example. The watch has a 42 mm satin finished and polished titanium case and bezel. The H-shaped screws are very much there and so is the sapphire crystal. The movement used inside is the Unico HUB1280, an automatic chronograph calibre with a fly-back function.
TAG Heuer Carrera Ref. CBM2112.FC6455
TAG Heuer is a global name in the field of high-end horology. The brand has seen almost everything there is to see in the industry. This tells us a lot about what the watchmaker truly is and how it approaches the art of watchmaking. The maestro of high precision sports chronographs is a formidable name in the business and the TAG Heuer Carrera collection is proof of that.
The watch in discussion here is the Ref. CBM2112.FC6455, a 41 mm stainless steel timepiece with a steel crown and a steel and ceramic bezel. The movement powering the watch is the Calibre 16, an automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve. The dial is a beautifully crafted blue sun-ray brushed one that comes with applied indices.
Omega Speedmaster Ref. 3126.96.36.199.01.001
There is absolutely nothing ‘average’ about Omega. The Swiss master craftsman and horologist has been in the business for over a century and that clearly reflects in the way it makes its watches. Call it a cliché, but the brand knows what it is doing. The Omega Speedmaster is an apt example of this.
The fact that it was the first watch to ever make it to the moon and back has nothing to do with its incredible amount of accuracy and precision. The timepiece in discussion here is a 39.7 mm stainless steel device that comes along with the 321 calibre. The bezel is made of polished black ceramic and has a tachymeter on in. This watch holds a great deal of historical significance not only to the brand but also to the entire watchmaking fraternity.
It is truly fascinating how a list of ‘best’ watches is never really complete. If we were to go through each and every watch there is to see, the list might never end. Luxury watches, like the ones mentioned above, are made with extreme attention to detail, finesse, and allure. These watches are not just timekeeping devices, they are a physical manifestation of years of research and development. And as one can clearly see, they do justice to the hype behind them.
Rolex Submariner Ref. 114060
Rolex has been given many names in the past and a large section of those names do justice its grandeur. The Swiss watchmaker is, by many, termed as the undisputed king of the luxury watchmaking industry. Needless to say, its watches are what do most of the talking. Over the years, Rolex has achieved an unbelievable level of perfection in its watch manufacturing. Call it luck, call it vision, or call consistent hard work, the watchmaker is thriving and we could not be happier as fans.
The timepiece in the spotlight here is the Rolex Submariner Ref. 114060. The watch is a 40 mm Oystersteel timepiece that comes along with a Monobloc middle case, a winding crown, and a screw down case back. The 3130 calibre is an automatic movement that is accurate up to +/- 2 seconds a day. The Oystersteel bracelet is a nice touch to an already sumptuous watch.
