With some Swiss Designer Watches Online, you wonder if you should even bother trying to write something about it. Afraid that your words don’t add anything, or are hopelessly insufficient in describing the beauty of it. In those cases, you simply want to post the images and let the reader become a viewer. However, there is enough to tell about the UR-210 Amadeus to dedicate a few words to it, even if they only serve as modest captions to an amazing watch.
If there’s one watch that still haunts the collective dreams of the watch lover community since SIHH 2017 it’s the Swiss Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar. In ceramic. In the 40-ish years since the Royal Oak's conception, Gerald Genta’s avant-garde masterpiece has seen it all. Cases made of steel, gold, platinum, and forged carbon, married to nearly every type of complication under the sun in haute horology – but never in full ceramic, both case and bracelet.
Swiss Montblanc unveiled a whole host of new watches this year, and even enlisted the help of Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman to help them do so – it’s just the sort of thing that happens at SIHH.
Among the new timepieces is the luxury Swiss brand’s new TimeWalker collection, which has been revamped for 2017. According to the folk at Montblanc, these new additions to the brand’s much-loved family of swiss sports watches have been winning a lot of attention, and it’s easy to see why.
The Blancpain Villeret Annual Calendar GMT Watch was a Baselworld 2016 novelty, and when it was introduced at the show it generated a lot of interest thanks to the combination of its case material (steel), its user-friendliness (considerable), and its delivery of bang for the buck (lots, at least, in relative terms). I finally managed to get my hands on one and spent a few days with it, to find out whether or not the initial positive impression stands up to longer exposure.
