If my other two lists (here and here, in case you forgot) had loose themes tying them together, this one is all over the shop, covering off the serious to playful spectrum very nicely indeed. So, let’s start with the serious …
A. Lange & Söhne’s Zeitwerk Date
It’s larger and thinner, but the real news is the smartly executed date. You’d be forgiven for expecting a date aperture, in line with the time display, but no, Lange opted for an open-worked date disk that looks very nice indeed.
Cartier Tonneau Dual Time Skeleton
Cartier’s skeleton watches are well known, and typically they’re not the sort of watch I could imagine myself wearing. This guy, though, I would wear all the freaking time. Perhaps it’s the combination of the richly shaped case and skeleton movement, or maybe it’s just the smart dual dials. All I know is I love it.
Richard Mille Bonbon collection
Picking an entire collection is a total cheat move, but you know what, I don’t care. All these watches — indulgently artistic takes on the sweeter things in life — are great, playful and absolutely ridiculous. Richard Mille, masters of the high-end timekeeping machine, prove that things don’t always have to be so serious.
