Tastes differ – I know. Please discover my top ten watches in terms of design, the three best replicas and the in my eyes best skeleton watch of the year 2013.
In analogy to my yesterday’s presentation this is of course NOT a ranking since the presentations are done in alphabetic order.
And, as already mentioned above… Tastes differ! So guys I don´t mind if you disagree with my selection. Nevertheless please let me know what you think.
Best design … My top ten watches 2013
Baume & Mercier Clifton
The Clifton literally acted as a turbo boost for Baume & Mercier the sell-out was and is incredible. Of course it´s the design of the watch that pleases. In my eyes the design is simply perfect!
Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel
The all-black, “Blacksteel” version of the Breitling Cosmonaute that wrote watch-history in the year 1962 is just stunningly beautiful.
Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Mysterieuse
Reproducing those famous mysterious Cartier table clocks for the wrist was not an easy task. The way the Cartier design team did it fascinates me. I simply like this watch. It’s clearly recognizable as a Cartier.
Frédérique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture
Of course this deign is not new and of course it´s a copy of a watch we have seen before, but everyone could have done it, since the classical design is not protected. This Frédérique Constant is a perfect classic and afordable watch of the present.
Hublot Classic Fusion Classico Ultra-Thin King Gold Black Shiny Dial
Something completely new for Hublot: an extra-thin watch, a Classic Fusion whose design has been refined, while retaining the dynamic and modern codes immediately recognizable as Hublot.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin 41mm
So thin, so beautiful, so classical… A Jaeger-LeCoultre, once you tried it on your wrist, you simply want to possess. For me the perfect mix in terms of size and thinness.
This new and refined Nomos-design is making its way. After all theses years of not changing anything in terms of design Nomos was courageous and it pays off. I am sure several declinations will follow.
Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days – 47mm Paneristi Forever
The PAM532 is the perfect mix for the Paneristi. It´s a typical Panerai, has all the DNA its needs, without wanting to be a martial object on the wrist. I couldn´t have done it better 🙂
Rado HyperChrome Court
A bravura piece from Rado illustrating that not all the brands watches necessary need to win an international design price. This is not more and not less than good mainstream design that simply pleases.
Zenith Pilot Baron Rouge
CEO Jean-Frederic Dufour understands Zenith and he his aware of its heritage. No wonder that we see more and more stunning watches. A must have item for the wrist.
Best replica … My top three watches 2013
Omega Seamaster Bullhead
There is no need to explain anything… Omega simply hit the bullseye 🙂
Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue
Tudor, Rolex´ little sister is gaining more and more ground. This is another fantastic replica!
Vulcain Cricket Nautical Seventies
Authentic and so cool! Sounds great and looks great, a real collector´s item.
Best skeleton … My favorite watch 2013
Tissot T Complication Squelette
I can hear you call out: Is Alexander crazy now?
No I am not!
Guys, please enlarge the picture and have a closer look. Gorgeous! That Tissot is a modern interpretation of the theme skeleton watch that turned out well for an incredible competitive price.
