Living and breathing Haute Horlogerie for more than a decade, Martin Green's everyday life is infused with watches. A love for the history of watches is combined with an eclectic taste, while his studies at the Gemological Institute of America sparked a deeper understanding of diamond set watches. After writing for several international publications he joined Haute Time. Savoring the good life he divides his time between Europe and the US, always on the look out for the next story to write.

Few brands have a following so loyal that they even have a name of their own, yet Panerai does. For many people owning one of their watches is a love-affair. They are large and robust, yet also radiate a flair that you would not expect from such a generously sized watch. They often make you wonder if the form is following function or that it is, in fact, the other way around? At Haute Time these are our favourite watches from the brand: READ MORE
