2019 was a great year for the watch making industry. A year full of surprises and packed with the big steel sports watch hype.
Most notable watch launches were AP’s 11:59, Rolex Batman on Jubilee bracelet, Tudor’s PO1 and a lot of sports watches from different brands.
I’d like to take the opportunity to say thank you to each and everyone for being part of my journey this year. It has been amazing!
Now let’s dive into my favourite 5 watches that were launched this year:
– Bell and Ross BR05 Skeleton
Just love what B&R did. with this watch it’s clearly has some influences from popular designs but they managed to stay true to their shape and DNA.
– Tudor Black Bay Chrono Dark
This is a fantastic watch launched mod of this year. The black case and bracelet are beautifully sleek paired with the white details on the dial. A watch for daily use and definitely a talking piece that can easily spark a conversation.
– Breitling Navitimer 1959 Re-Edition
Probably my favourite watch launch from Baselworld 2019 just because this watch reintroduced me to the brand. I’m a big fan now especially due to this watch. As you might know I love clean dials but clean doesn’t always have to be simple 3 timers – it’s more about the composition and the style. For me this watch is fantastic!
– Omega Seamaster Diver 300m 007 Edition
James Bond has been a big part of my life given that my grandfather is one of the greatest fans. This might just be the piece fro me to add to my collection. A James Bond watch should be part of ones collection don’t you think 😁.
Price: 8.600€ (with titanium bracelet)
– A Lange & Söhne Odysseus
The most significant watch release for me and yet I’m still not happy with the metal bracelet. Give me a black dial and it’ll be part of my collection immediately.
Hope you like my top 5! Let me know what yours were ✌️
