We would like to have 10 wrists to wear them all at the same time, or to wear several on each arm like Nicolas Hayek (the President of the watch group Swatch Group)! Here are some mythical watches or simply beautiful that you must know.
Tag HeuerTag Monaco
Launched in 1969, this watch brand entered the legend almost immediately after its release, on the wrist of Steve McQueen in “Le Mans”. Let us not forget that the Monaco was first the first automatic square chronograph in the world, and the first square waterproof case. Wear with a casual outfit during a weekend on the circuits.
It was in 1938 that the story of the Radiomir began, in the workshop of Guido Panerai. This year, the watchmaker will produce the first models of this legendary watch for soldiers of the Royal Italian Navy, after testing a first prototype two years ago. With its 47mm waterproof case and radiomir-treated indexes (fluorescent substance), it was the perfect watch for those extreme divers. It was not until 1998 that the brand really regained the models we know today. The Radiomir is a thick watch that we recommend only to the big wrists under penalty of seeming to carry a clock.
It will not have marked the history by feats or firsts, but it remains today one of the chronograph with the most harmonious curves and homogeneous which exists. This Portuguese IWC has the heritage of the “Portuguese” watches of the 30s and the modernism of a clean and discreet chrono. This watch has been for more than a decade the most popular chrono of the brand.
In 1957, after years of research, Piaget started a brand called the 9P, which is only 2 mm thick. Then, thirty years after, it started the “Altiplano” with its ultra-flat morphology. It is still a model for those looking for a fine watch that disappears under a shirt or under the sleeve of his wedding suit.
It shocked the critics when it was released in 1976 with its original curves and steel case, but today it has become a popular cult watch with a timeless design. This rounded square in the shape of a transatlantic porthole and octagonal bezel remains a model reserved for a small clientele of wealthy enthusiasts. It is worn with everything, but especially at the controls of your Wally 118!
