3 Watches A Watch Collector Should Own
What are some things you should look out for in a watch that makes it worth collecting? Some of the things include the quality and finish of a watch, the material used, the watch heritage, the uniqueness of the design, and complication. Here are our top 3 choices that we think are worth collecting for all watch collectors out there.
Our top pick is the Vulcain Tonneau Millesime 1928. This wrist alarm features the Vulcain iconic exclusive cricket alarm with in-house hand winding movement, and the watchcase is made of stainless steel with a resonance back constructed out of a double membrane caseback. Unlike the usual round watch face, this piece has a rounded rectangle face which makes it more unique and special. The watch face comes in 3 different colours - Blue, Black and White, and there will most definitely be a piece that will catch your eyes! What makes this piece even more eye catching is the guilloche dial that mesmerizes any wearer!
Our next favourite is the Vincent Calabrese NHC BFR from the Beauty-Fuel Collection. This timepiece has 44 hours power reserve, a second time zone and period of the day and date. The watch case features a gold execution with 18ct. red gold buckle. What makes this piece so special is that it is an in-house movement created by Vincent Calabrese, master Swiss watch maker who is known to be the creator of the tourbillion for Breguet and Golden Bridge for Corum. This is the piece that will mesmerise everyone due to its simplicity and functionality.
The last piece a watch collector should own is the Hanhart Pioneer Red X Limited Edition. This chronograph is laced with the iconic colour of Hanhart, red. Legend has it that the start/stop pusher was painted red by the wives of World War 2 pilots to serve as a reminder to come home safe. On other parts of this timepiece, red accents are found on the watch face, the bezel and even on the stitching of the straps! This piece comes in both leather strap and stainless-steel bracelet. The design is a homage to vintage pilot watch designs and is suitable for any occasion. What makes this piece even more sought after is the limited quantity around the world, only 1,939 pieces can be found - in honour of the year the original watch was released in. This piece is one of the iconic pieces you should have in your Hanhart collection!
