Summer is here, and that means that the lives of most people tend to move more to the outdoors. Pools and beaches, dining al fresco, go sailing or simply sit down and relax in the garden, these five watches will perfectly match your summer mood!
Richard Mille RM 67-02 High Jump
Originally created for the Qatari high jump specialist Mutaz Essa Barshim, this Richard Mille RM 67-02 has many features that many people will enjoy on a hot summer day. Crafted from the strong Quartz TPT, the watch weighs only 32 grams. This is also thanks to the screws and main plate and bridges inside the movement which are all crafted from grade 5 titanium. While its colour scheme honours the Qatari flag, it will go equally well with some summer outfits.
Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 Ceramic Blue
With its microblasted ceramic blue case is this Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 a true eyecatcher. Hublot extended this colour scheme to inside the movement adding to the fun. Its manual wind movement has a power reserve of ten days, which is displayed through a very ingenious power reserve indicator. A rubber strap ensures that it wears comfortable during the summer weeks, and a water resistance of 100 meters makes it that you can even jump in the pool with it on the wrist.
Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph
With the reversed panda-dial is the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph a sportive choice for the summer. Thanks to its special bracelet feature that allows you to switch within seconds between the metal bracelet and the rubber strap, it is perfect for the summer. On cooler summer evenings you might even put it on the alligator strap, while you enjoy dinner on board of your super yacht!
Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic
With a diameter of 38mm is this Panerai significantly smaller than most of its siblings, yet make no mistake, it is a real Panerai! It is fitted with an automatic manufacture movement with a three-day power reserve. Its light-coloured dial makes it a perfect choice for the summer, where the smaller diameter will also add to the wearing comfort. One of those very few watches that will be adored by both men and women alike.
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Automatique Grande Date
Nothing says summer like a beautiful divers watch! While the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms has a long history, as it was one of the very first serious diving watches, it is, by all means, a modern creation. Its case is made from satin-brushed titanium, the movement not only has three-mainspring barrels, giving it a five-day power reserve but also a silicium hairspring making it virtually immune to magnetic fields.
