Watches For The World
As summer draws to a close, we say goodbye to sun kissed skin and the warmth of the Côte d’Azur. But, it’s never too late for a last-minute city break, with Europe on our doorstep and time on our side we’ve taken our favourite watches of the moment and paired them with a city they are made to explore.
Montblanc Timewalker 116060
The evolving Dutch capital is every adventurers dream. From its opposing land and water terrain to its preserved history and progressive people, this harmonious bicycle city has a sense of adventure that has lured travellers for centuries.
The updated Montblanc Timewalker aligns itself with a truly vintage aesthetic, reminiscent of automotive speedometers. Its super-luminova coated hands and minuterie provide perfect readability; ideal for late-night walks along Amsterdam’s winding canals. The shining ceramic bezel with hour numerals and indexes can be turned to indicate a second time zone, great for clocking in with what’s going on back home.
Nomos Glasshütte Ludwig
Sweden’s style conscious capital sits astride 14 small islands to form the Stockholm archipelago. With a love for sharp looks and slim silhouettes, this is a picturesque city that cannot be missed. Where functionality meets fashion, the cobbled streets of Stockholm bring vibrant culture and a bitterly cold winter.
The Nomos Glasshütte Ludwig represents traditional German manufacturing, elegant finishes and Bauhaus influence, wholly encompassing the Stockholm aesthetic. Featuring a plain white dial and a mixture of indices and Roman numerals, this timeless watch pairs with business wear and off-duty ensembles alike. The appeal of a Nomos Glasshütte is not for the mainstream, it’s for a wearer with watch expertise and a penchant for satorialism – perfect for a trip to Stockholm.
Officine Panerai Luminor 1950
Founded in 1825 Florence, Officine Panerai have been supplying watches and precision instruments to the Italian Navy for over a hundred years. No stranger to Italy’s historic capital, a Panerai will be your best travel companion. Rome brings its nations cuisine to life, offers a perfect climate and a chance to be surrounded by an immense history of art.
Taking inspiration from its namesake; a 1950 Panerai, the brand’s updated wrist watch showcases the typical characteristics of a Panerai. Namely a pillow-shaped case, a protective stirrup with a lever used to press the crown firmly into the case and a worn-in crocodile strap. A small piece of Italy to see you through any expedition.
