Just for fun! If you want to look cool and impress with your watch on the wrist on the earth’s summer hot spots 2014, this choice could the one for you.


Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore: This new 2014 blue version is the coolest way to wear the icon in the moment. The hype around the Royal Oak Offshore anyhow will never die. For many the Royal Oak Offshore is just the ultimate sporty statement on the wrist.

Cartier Calibre de Cartier Diver: No one will really go diving with the Diver (but guys you could!), the Diver it is the most masculine watch Cartier has in it´s collection up to date and this makes the Diver very attractive to those who ever wanted to wear a Cartier and always thought these watches weren´t masculine enough.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Chronograph Ceramic: One of these ultimate cool black ceramic watches with a wow effect. In case you do not like the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon an alternative I would recommend. The watch also has quite an understatement factor to offer, it could be yours if you don´t want to “shine” too much with a chronograph on your wrist.

Omega Speedmaster Mark II: In a historic advertising Omega said: “And its daddy that went to the moon.” The 2014 replica of the 1969 Speedmaster Mark II is not as popular as the classic Speedmaster itself and it will therefore surprise your vis-à-vis. The watch might start a nice conversation, you could tell a nice story about its “daddy” and your Mark II on the wrist. Maybe the first step to impress your future significant other.

  • I would have mentionned the new Nautilus travel Time ( though it won’t be available until 2015)

    The Blue Z Milgauss

    And of course the new Sea Dweller

  • My favourite summer watch would probably be the Nomos Ahoi, now also in its nice Atlantik variant. A very relaxed watch with its swimming towel tissue strap!
    I see a Nomos in my future.

  • Dear Alexander, a lot of watches i really love but the tudor “black bay” has a special place in my heart. Last couple of days i was wearing the red version and ever since Basel2014 i’m thinking about the bleu one. A happy summer to all the reader.

  • I Think the Omega Speedmaster can just as easily be worn in everyday life. To me, a perfect watch for holiday seasons is the Rolex Submariner Ref. 116610LV that I miss in the summary you’ve shown.

    • The Submariner should of course be listed here, but the watch is not a 2014 novelty and if you take a closer look here all watches mentioned are…

  • I believe in these places there are lot of beautiful ladies, if you want to make a date you need a watch is different to other to get their attention and would suggest Hublot dating. This watch don’t exist but I believe Hublot is willing to make one, if this can result in happiness,

  • Everrose-gold for her, 50th anniversary platinum Daytona for him – problem solved 🙂

  • Hi. These are all great choices. I indeed agree with your the most favorite ‘Tudor’. I actually got mine couple of weeks ago. A perfect summer watch.

  • Mark II is a great watch. I like Swatch Sistem51 too. It is absolutely unthinkable that a man might consider wearing a rosé gold Daytona. Rolex has created gold in honor of the gold itself, not the watch.

  • I just can’t go or look wrong with my PATEK 5167A the aquanaut, it’s the most versatile watch I know and it’s so understated.

  • Thank you, Alexander, all very nice indeed. My sister-in-law loves her Sistem51 in white. As an MIT professor she must look cool at all times. I think Sistem51 may become the ultimate no worries watch right for any occasion.



  • I think the new IWC Aquatimer Automatic or Aquatimer “expedition Charles Darwin” are perfect choices for summer time
