SIHH 2018, a time that all watch brands bring their big guns. To wow and push each other to create and push the boundaries. The most jammed packed design extravaganza with anniversaries and worlds first creations, A lange and Sohne Triple Split.
This year was inspiring to be a watch collector or a tough times to be labeled a watch nerd. As someone who is can’t call himself a collector but a huge enthusiast of the mechanical achievements of the past. The future of watch designs have really taken off, Audermars Piguet brings us some flashbacks with their modern remake of their original Royal Oak Offshore. Everything that we missed at the Geneva-based watch show Sihh could be relived at this past months Watches and Wonders.
At the Watches and Wonders in the Miami, we managed to view try and talk to other collectors their likes dislikes and valued points of this year’s new releases. Ranging from Vacheron Constantine Fifty6 Collection to Audemars Piguet “Camo”
We managed to get a hands-on many of these beautiful pieces and try on every possible one. Watches and Wonders was a well-choreographed event in which if you live in the Miami or South Florida area a definite destination for future watch collecting environment.
Be prepared that one day is not sufficient enough for all there is to see at W&W, for example, taking it slow at a Brand that never disappoints with innovation especially when It comes to materials HUBLOT, with their new Blue sandblasted ceramic. A watch that not only has an incredible look but beautiful movement, a true watch movement the MECA-10.
Jaeger LeCoultre finally brings back a sport that can be casually worn under the radar under the 46mm case. Their new Polaris collection, hints back to the history that Jaeger LeCoultre is a brand of expedition and Exploration. Jaeger LeCoultre one of the only few brands that can say and prove their capacity to create and innovate beautiful movements on a scale that they have a whopping 1200 plus calibers and over 400 patents. With their achievements releasing the Polaris collection, one of my favorite under 16,000$ watch released.
