We've got you covered when it comes to metallic watches. Because of the multitude of styles available, there is something for everyone. It's simple to see why these items are so popular: they feature a minimalist style combined with superb craftsmanship. The most up-to-date sales and designer timepieces for the new season may be found here.Depending on the brand and model, wristwatches are made of various materials. You might not think it's that crucial, but the material impacts the watch's longevity as well as its beauty. We've put together explanations of the most prevalent watchmaking materials so you can figure out which one is ideal for you. Let's have a peek, shall we?
Stainless steel is a durable material.
Stainless steel is made up of an iron-carbon alloy with chromium and pennie added to it. It's the most common watch material. Stainless steel is difficult to scratch in general because it is resilient, lightweight, and tough.
Wood is a natural material that comes in a variety of colours and grain patterns, making each watch created from it unique. This material gives the ideal platform for watchmakers to demonstrate their skill by developing exceptional designs. In comparison to other materials such as metal, which can be destroyed by the sun and water, a wooden watch will age gracefully.
Other materials are alloyed with titanium. It's a lightweight material that makes wristwatches lighter and more durable than stainless steel, making it ideal for luxury sports watches. Titanium is corrosion resistant and hypoallergenic, making it ideal for persons who are allergic to metals.
Ceramics are made of zirconium oxide, which is a hardened type of clay. Ceramic watches have a variety of advantages, including the fact that they are heat resistant and scratch resistant. This material is easy to work with and, because of its long-lasting lustre, is a popular choice for luxury timepieces
Royal Oak Quantieme Perpetuelle by Audemars Piguet
Even though the Royal Oak is 50 years old, the fact that it is still among the most popular watches on the market proves the adage that excellent design is timeless. The most popular variant for new customers is the basic three-hander, which is the exact replica of Gérald Genta's original. However, many seasoned Oak collectors now consider this perpetual calendar model to be one of the most desirable variations of the model ever produced.
IWC Big Pilot's Watch Lake Tahoe TOP GUN Edition
This year, IWC has introduced three new chronograph designs in collaboration with the US Navy's Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor Programme, commonly known as Top Gun (thanks to Tom Cruise). In addition to a 41mm piece in black Ceratanium, there are two 44.5 mm models: the one we're aiming for is this white-cased effort with matching rubber strap, a colour scheme based on the wintery scenery of the Lake Tahoe training area. The other model has a green case and dial that is inspired by the pilots' flight suits.
The buzz surrounding Patek Philippe's steel-cased Nautilus 5711 dominated the brand's calendar year. Pre-owned prices skyrocketed once it was revealed that production of the already hard to find blue dial version would stop. One "as new" example sold for £82,500 at auction, which is three times the normal price. Once it was revealed that the blue dial will be changed to green, there was an immediate "waiting list" and another rush to secure possession.
