Men’s luxury watches tell the time. To be more exact, they tell the time with extreme accuracy. However, it’s not the only thing they do. Men’s luxury watches also tell a story – about the watchmaker’s heritage, about the designer’s mastery, about the wearer’s status and taste.
Men’s luxury watches are much more than timepieces. No wonder, most of them are not sensitive to seasonal shifts. They are timeless and, therefore, can easily be passed through generations. Along with that, luxury watch brands don’t stay still. Each year, they introduce to the world their new creations and designs. As a result, we all have a choice. While some prefer newly released cool watches for men, others opt for classic models that have passed the test of time. So let’s look at the most popular men’s luxury watches of 2016!
1. Cartier Tank Anglaise Extra-Large 18k Rose Gold Diamond Watch
This perfect piece of Art Deco high-end luxury watches was popular year ago, and it is still popular now. Its streamlined design, 18k rose gold case set with brilliant-cut diamonds, 18k rose gold bracelet, and lacquered silvered flinque dial with distinctive blued-steel hands make this Cartier model one of the most desired ever.
2. Patek Philippe Grand Complications 5078R-001 18k Rose Gold Watch
This list of the best men’s luxury watches cannot exist without Patek Philippe on it, especially when it comes to Grand Complications. This particular 18k rose gold watch with a minute repeater is not in vain considered one of the most popular models in 2016. With its classic 38mm case, authentic enamel dial, chocolate brown alligator leather strap, and accurate self-winding movement, it will never go out of fashion.
3. Blancpain Le Brassus Carrousel Repetition Minutes 0235-3631-55B Watch
This beautiful model is another example of the best minute repeater watches. Enclosed in an 18k rose gold case with a white grand feu enamel dial, it is still almost completely transparent, which allows us to see all the inner workings of the timepiece. The model is powered by a unique self-winding movement with carousel minute repeater and one-minute flying carousel complications.
4. Rolex Yacht-Master II 18k Yellow Gold Watch
Initially designed to meet the needs of professional sailors, this luxury watch with chronograph has become a symbol of both, power and success. No wonder, this Rolex model is on this list. Featuring 18k yellow gold Oyster case and bracelet, an 18k gold bi-directional rotating bezel with blue Cerachrom insert in ceramic, and a readable white dial, such a stunning piece of designer chronograph watches is a true statement of sophisticated manliness.
5. Vacheron Constantin Patrimony 85180 18k Rose Gold Watch
The Vacheron Constantin Patrimony has always been among the most popular luxury watch models, largely due to its simplified and clean design suitable for any occasion and outfit. Enclosed in a classic 18k rose gold case and presented on a dark brown alligator leather strap, this particular timepiece is another proof of that. No wonder, it has become one of best men’s luxury watches in 2016.
2017 is nearly upon us, and there are lots of brand new watches to expect in the New Year. Looking forward to seeing them soon! Happy Holidays!
