All men’s luxury watches can be divided into three major categories: dress watches that can be easily passed down through generations, sports watches created to match the wearer’s active lifestyle, and innovative watches distinguished by their unprecedented complications and design. Needless to say that the latter are usually the most expensive and undoubtedly the most eye-catching. So what are these men’s luxury watches and why are they always in demand with Haute Horlogerie connoisseurs? Below is our top 5 list of these innovative timepieces to blow your mind!
1. Jean Dunand Palace
Inspired by the era of Art Deco industrialism, the Palace is one of the coolest, craziest, and most incredible looking men’s luxury watches in the Jean Dunand collection. Featuring two linear displays for the power reserve indication and GMT, a flying tourbillon, and a unique winding mechanism, this eclectic timepiece is complicated in both functionality and design.
2. A. Lange & Söhne Tourbograph Perpetual “Pour le Mérite”
This year, A. Lange & Söhne has introduced its fifth masterpiece from the renowned “Pour le Mérite” series of sophisticated high-end luxury watches.
