Though seen mostly as accessories in this smartphone age, watches remain timeless investments—a small and constant way we demonstrate our interest and appreciation for mechanical intricacies, design, and history. In an unstated way, watches symbolise a shared history of man’s foray into time-keeping. They also bear sentimental marks from each wearer, heirlooms that can be passed from generation to generation. As the design and function of a watch are largely divisible into three categories, namely for dress, sport, and casual wear; we recommend investing in a timepiece that can cross categories. Watches that may easily be dressed down or up include Cartier’s Tank Louis and Tank Solo, NOMOS Glashütte’s Tangente and Orion, Junghans’ Max Bill.
