Interested in who will have the hottest watches on the market this year? Timepiece Perfection has laid out a few of the top brand you’ll have to keep your eye on in 2016:
For the last 150 years, AP has created some of the most high-end watches money can buy. With a history of creating innovative minute repeater watches, their brand is founded on some of the most accurate and luxurious horological instruments.
If you’re looking for a gorgeous, forged carbon watch by AP, keep your eye out for the new Royal Oak Concept Laptimer Michael Schumacher. It’s said to be their most ground-breaking mechanical movement yet.
Since it first began creating timepieces in the 18th century, Blancpain had held up their true tradition of innovation and creativity. Famous for their Fifty Fathoms dive watch, this year they have reinforced their commitment to combine economic development with marine conservation by supporting World Ocean summit.
This year, they will be releasing more watches to fit their theme, by donating a portion of their proceeds to the cause.
As the leading Saxon watch manufacturer for over 170 years, you can expect nothing less than impressive from this brand. A. Lange and Sohne has opened a new factory, and they’re making exquisitely crafted watches to commemorate their achievements, such as the Zeitwerk Minute Repeater, and the more affordable yet equally stunning Lange 1.
Although they’re known for their square case watches, their latest watches are anything but “square”. This year, we’re eyeing the limited edition 10th anniversary Skeleton Tourbillon Mono-Pusher Chronograph. It gives the impression of being prised from a military aircraft, giving it a touch of class and strength like no other timepiece.
Now this is a brand that you should always keep in mind when searching for the most luxurious watches on the market. This year, they’re celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Day-Date, resulting in an extreme makeover for it’s flagship model. They’re also branching out by offering a Yachtmaster with a rubber strap in a delectable pink-rose gold case.
With the release of the latest bond film Spectre, Daniel Craig has given Omega plenty of exposure by wearing their Seamaster model designed specifically for the film. The Seamaster 300 Spectre has the Bond family coat of arms and gun barrel found in the self-winding weight. But their impressive watches go being 007: keep your eye out for more supremely accurate watches to be released this year.
