THE BEST WATCHES FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2020

By  |  0 Comments

While some people might be replacing watches with smartwatches or fitness trackers, we still believe a quality timepiece is an essential executive accoutrement. Serving two purposes; it makes a statement about your style and standing, and it tells you the time. So, whether you flex a rugged, tech-heavy chronograph or a classic, slimline dress watch designed to compliment your suits, your choice of watch says a lot about you. Because a true gentleman is always measured by his watch. Here are the best watches of the season.  

AUDEMARS PIGUET 

Audemars Piguet rarely looks to its back catalogue. It has made an exception here, with a watch based on a 1943 chronograph. The two-tone steel and pink gold case with champagne dial is borrowed directly from the now-collectable original model. Concessions to modernity include a revised dial for increased legibility and a glare-proof sapphire crystal case back. It is limited to 500 pieces.

TISSOT

Competitively priced, no nonsense steel watch that won’t let you down. Tissot’s T-Classic watch line is all about pairing Swiss-made tradition with go-anywhere appeal. Also available with a blue dial.

BREITLING

Breitling continues to roll out new watches for 2020 with the new Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition. It is the longest-running association between a watchmaker and a car brand. Limited to 100 pieces, the watch features a solid 42mm polished steel case with a push/pull crown and rectangular chronograph pushers.

IWC

One of the nicest-looking chronographs and arguably the classic IWC dress watch now comes with a self-winding in-house movement that significantly lowers its entry price (at least in the steel version). The absence of a date keeps it classy. Competitively priced, no nonsense steel watch that won’t let you down.

LONGINES

Paying tribute to the year it was created, this model is a fair summation of the codes close to Longines’s heart: mixing tradition with elegance and performance. The movement can be admired through the transparent caseback. Longines make some of the coolest, most affordable watches in the business.
