Steel: The Real Deal

When it comes to watches there is no way around it: the vast majority of them are made from steel. While other materials such as ceramic, and even bronze, gain some market share, it is still steel that rules supreme, even among high-end watches. These are some of our favorite steel watches!

Rolex is one of the brands that made a big part of its reputation based on steel watches. While everybody is using 316L steel, the brand with the crown opts for 904L steel. We were very excited to see this Baselworld that the Sky-Dweller now is also offered in all steel, making this bold and quite complicated watch now truly the perfect travel companion.

Who doesn’t like to pretend he is Bond from time to time? Getting his watch, and ordering a Vodka Martini, is, of course, the easiest way to do so.

The grande entrance of an incredible expansion of the Laureato collection by Girard-Perregaux introduced us to many new varieties of this legendary watch. We were especially taken by the steel version with a leather strap, which gives the watch a casual chique appearance, and makes it very versitile in steel!
