A small history of watches and some tips for purchasing the perfect watch. Chunky, luxury watches don’t suit everyone’s style, but this sleek-looking beauty carries the elegance and swagger needed to stand out from the crowd. The steel blue-like dial with its mix of distinctive leaf hands and Roman numerals exudes an air of class appropriate to a watch brand founded in Geneva in 1830. At 40mm it’s on the upper end of the medium size scale. Strap it on your wrist and see why celebs like David Duchovny and Kiefer Sutherland are huge fans. Chotovelli, a brand founded in the 1920s in Turin, derived and inspired by Italian aviators, is a name you probably haven’t heard before. Which just means it qualifies as a ‘find’. For the price, this handsome oversized chrono is by far the biggest bargain on the list, and the opportunity it affords to give each admirer a mini history lesson is just icing on the cake. The saddle leather strap will only get better with age, but caveat emptor: at 47mm, this is one big watch.
De Ville Tresor 125th Anniversary Edition, 40mm 18k yellow gold case, burgundy leather strap It’s a big year for Omega. The main event is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing — and, in turn, of the first watch on the moon, Omega’s Speedmaster — but there’s plenty more to celebrate. Such as Omega itself turning 125. For many, the most elegant of a series of watches marking the birthday will be the De Ville Tresor 125th Anniversary Edition. An exercise in understatement, the 40mm 18k yellow gold case houses a red enamel dial and a chronometer-certified, hand-wound Co-Axial Omega movement. On the reverse, where you might expect a sapphire case back, you find an 18K commemorative “medallion” emblazoned with a vintage Omega logo. The classic design follows the company’s iconic brand colour and extends to the burgundy leather strap with tone-on-tone stitching.
