Style without substance is pointless, but that doesn’t mean that you should not put any efforts in the way you dress and look. Dressing well is a sign of respect, towards others, but also yourself. This is also not necessarily always in a suit and tie, as in today’s world you can be just as professional in a more casual outfit. Of course, your watch game has to be on point, but with the four watches below that is not a problem.
Richard Mille RM53-01 Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough
Richard Mille is one of the most successful people in watchmaking. In record time he not only obtained a powerful position for his brand but also brought it to the forefront of innovation and design. This resulted in some unexpected side effects, as with most brands a visit to the brand boutique allows you to see most of their current collection, at Richard Mille you are lucky if they can show you a handful of watches. But who can be surprised of that when you look at the RM53-01 Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough? Granted, even in the world of Richard Mille, this watch is a highlight, as it was created for one of the most successful polo players in history. But even when you don’t play this very demanding sport, the architecture and technical prowess offer plenty to enjoy!
Rolex GMT-Master II
Few things in life say success in a way that a Rolex does. It is a universal sign that you made something of yourself, or at least made enough money to treat yourself on one of the most iconic Swiss brands around. While you could have picked a nice Daytona, a classic Datejust or a robust Submariner, the stainless steel ‘Pepsi’ GMT-Master is currently the way to go, as it is one of the hottest Rolex on the market. It is a statement when worn with a suit, and blends in perfectly with more casual settings. Moreover, it is nearly impossible to get, so wearing one means that you have an excellent relationship with your Rolex dealer, and that will most certainly add to the perception that others have of your success.
Patek Philippe Nautilus Perpetual Calendar 5740/1G
There is nothing quite like the Patek Philippe Nautilus. Sure, its design is legendary, but the way that it sits on the wrist, with its high-end movements and subtle finishes, makes it stand out. With the perpetual calendar, Patek Philippe integrated a prestigious complication while safeguarding the design of the Nautilus. In perfect symmetry it ooze style and class. Because this perpetual calendar is crafted from white gold, it has significantly more heft than a stainless steel version would, serving also as a constant reminder of your own success.
Breguet Tourbillon Extra-Plat 5367
The tourbillon remains one of the most prestigious complications, but even this high up the horological ladder there are different tiers, as not all tourbillons are created equal. With a Breguet, you honour not only the founding father of this extraordinary device but also showcase your knowledge. For Breguet, the tourbillon is not just a historical complication, but a source of inspiration and the subject of constant innovation. Both the balance spring, as well as parts of the escapement are crafted from silicon, while the tourbillon cage is made from titanium. This would most certainly have delighted Abraham-Louis Breguet, who would probably also be fascinated by the peripheral rotor. The rest of the watch is delightfully traditional, with a Grand Feu enamel dial, and refined case with a fluted caseband, making this Breguet tourbillon bring together past, present and future in a single creation.
