My today’s personal top 17 techie (most innovative) watches

These 17 techie watches fascinate me due to the technical approach that was chosen by the manufacturing brand to realize the timepiece.

I will only in brief present you my top 17 techie watches since I have been presenting all of them already in the last weeks here on the blog. So if you look for more information, PLEASE look for it on the blog.

Why 17? Why not! 🙂

This is my personal choice, the listing is in alphabetic order and I did not make any difference concerning the price of the watches.

    Watchmaking seems to be propelled both in mechanical and techno watches, by the ego trip of the designer. Look at casio and citizen and try and spot the attractive looking watch, also some of the dials are just gap fillers, and not customer serving. In the luxury watch market, the byword appears to be snobbery and price protection. Two very attractive watches, in my opinion, are omega speedmaster, and rolex submariner. The next development I would like to see is, wave ceptor technology, and solar power incorporated into the luxury watches for perfect timekeeping.

    Agree and concur if the Cartier was omitted from the techie grouping. Well thought out otherwise. Kisses!

    You have bloody good tastes in watchers , all incredible designs. Trouble is some are incredibly unreliable. My old Heuer and Rolex need constance attention . My Sekio that
    was given to me for my 21 st , some 47 years ago has never missed a beat. Why dont you
    show or review Japanese watcher ? Think you have a great site.

    Sir, and I say this humbly, but the acronym KISS means keep it simple stupid. There is no “and” between simple and stupid. It is a command, an imperative sentence. This is not for publication but I thought you would like to know.
