There’s nothing quite like the craftsmanship, style and feel of a luxury watch. Some may say that watches are all created the same, and this may be true in some cases, but for others they are more like true works of art. Big names like Rolex, Seiko, and TAG Heuer are renown for hand-crafting elegant pieces that will stand the test of time. They certainly give the wearer a feeling of grandeur and coolness that ooze supremacy and prestige.
We at M2 want to share the best watches on the market and have put together a list of pieces that we think fully represents the classy man.
Rolex GMT-Master II in Oyster Steel
Rolex have released their GMT-Master II in Oyster Steel and it will make any wearer feel priceless. Known also as the Cosmopolitan watch, it is identified as a travellers watch as it automatically adjusts to different time zones using automated technology. The model case is 40mm made from Oyster Steel. The watch features a 3285 calibre movement that glides with perpetual, mechanical, self-winding and GMT function.
This watch is available in New Zealand for NZ$13,600.
Rolex Sea-Dweller in Oyster Steel and Yellow Gold
Founded under a different name in 1905 by brother-in-law’s, Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis, Rolex has been the go-to watch brand for sophisticated and upper-class gents alike. Recently, the marquee brand launched their Seas Dweller Oyster Steel and Yellow Gold model and it’s as impressive as it sounds. It combines the sleek of oyster-steel with 18 carats worth of gold on the case and bracelet. Developed in collaboration with sea-divers who spend unthinkable amounts of time under the water, the watch can function 1,220 metres below sea level thanks to innovative technology – a helium escape valve. The bezel has unidirectional rotatable movement fitted with a 60 minute graduated Cerachrom insert in black ceramic and a calibre 3235, a new type of movement developed by Rolex themselves, ensuring precision, reservation for power, convenience and reliability.
The price for this watch is NZ$23,550.
