Jaquet Droz Watches

Jaquet Droz is an interesting watch brand. They stick to classical conventions in the watchmaking world and haven't embraced any modern (as in, this decade) trends towards larger watches and the like. Yet their designs were never purely classical, with charcoal dials, off-center sub-dials and striking silver accents. Pictured above are two of my favorites: The Grande Heure Minute Cerclée from the Hommage Londres 1774 line, and the Les Lunes Cerclée from the La-Chaux-de-Fonds 1738 collection. All in all, they make some beautiful watches in a classic yet a little off the beaten path style. Would make a great gift for a guy; even if he hates it he can sell it for around 10k or so :)

  • Ah, the IWC Mark XVI. While the watch itself has a storied history (the XVI are roman numerals) I'm just attracted to the look - and the fact that, if I actually saved up awhile, I could afford it ($3700).

While the watch itself has a storied history (the XVI are roman numerals) I'm just attracted to the look - and the fact that, if I actually saved up awhile, I could afford it ($3700). I like the silver on silver contrast, and the Guilloché dial. The white hands and numerals are particularly striking. Like most watch companies, IWC has been increasing the diameters of their watches. The Mark XVI clocks (ha! actually, that wasn't too good) in at 39mm. This is tiny compared to the dinner-plate size watches that are the norm. While those have a place, my skinny wrists and quite elegance ( I like to think :D ) demand something a bit more toned down. The XVI straddles the line between sporty-casual and dress-casual; it's quite versatile. Watch geeks, inside you'll find an ETA 2892, fine tuned and with parts replaced by IWC. Stainless steel case and band, water resistant to 60 meters and it even has an iron inner case for magnetic field protection. Check out the second picture for a more real -life view. Anyone care to buy this for me? UPDATE: I now own this! It's just a great as I expected and even a better looker in real life.

  • Tough case, high-quality automatic Swiss movement and minimalist, slightly brutal styling.

  • good looking watch
