watch-collection-essentials

There’s a certain mystique about wearing a leather strap watch that creates an air of distinction on the wrist.

More than a century later, strap wristwatches are still widely popular and are prominently featured today in collections from such renowned watchmakers as Corum, Omega, TAG Heuer, Breitling, Cartier, Invicta, Graham, Greco, Lucien Piccard, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Eterna and IWC.

A Pilot watch is another timepiece essential to consider for your collection. Pilot watches have long been associated with precision timepieces since the very origin of men’s wristwatches in 1904, when jeweler and watchmaker Louis Cartier designed a timepiece for colleague Alberto Santos-Dumont to wear on his wrist while flying. Pocket watches were favored by men at the time, yet were too cumbersome to use when flying in a single engine plane. The first Cartier Santos wristwatch featured a square-shaped case with rounded edges on the lugs and a leather strap that comfortably fit on the wrist. Santos-Dumont always wore the…

A unidirectional rotating bezel is another aspect to consider to keep track of dive times while you’re under water. The watch material is another factor to take into consideration. Both stainless…
