My Top 10 Watches – What’s Yours?

I have always had an affection for timepieces. I remember as a child having dreams that I would buy myself a timepiece. When I came of age I remember getting something that broke down from getting water passing over it for a second. It was done and I remember thinking to myself “nothing but quality from here on”.

I soon realized that quality does not come cheap. There is a cost to that perfect timepiece that has been around long enough to win the affection of many timepiece lovers.

My Top 10 Time pieces.

When was the Wristwatch invented?

Watches have been around since the 16th century and engineered by watchmakers and inventors. Their mechanical watch was powered by winding a mainspring which was the evolution of a spring-driven portable clock from the 15th Century. The mainspring turned the wheels of gears that turned the hands by turning a balanced wheel.

The Mechanical watch was rivaled by Quarts watch that ran on electricity in the 1960s. Quartz watch ran on electricity and kept time by a vibrating Quarts Cristal. It took the market from the mechanical watch in the 1980s. Electronic watches with the quarts machine are still the preferred now in the 21st century through the Mechanical watch is still selling on the high end on the markets in the 21st
century.

Why I Choose Mechanical over Quads. My Top 10 Time machines,

Why I preferred the Mechanical over the Quarts.

There are advantages to both styles and it depends on an individual which is the best. While e the quartz movement is user-friendly and does not need too much attention and is more reliable in keeping the right time losing only about 3 to 5 seconds in a month while the Mechanical movement may lose 3 to 4 seconds a day. You may think the quarts are a clear winner. But if you look at the craftsmanship of mechanical timepieces the intricacy that goes into creating them you might reconsider. Even a broken watch is correct twice a day.

Though the mechanical piece is more expensive and requires attention with loss of seconds and maintenance while the quarts just need a battery replacement. The Mechanical timepiece will outlive the Quarts hands down. If you are looking to have a family heirloom you might consider looking at a mechanical movement watch.

What do you need in a watch?

This makes me think of the 007 of the retro 80s series of a man talking to his car through his watch “Nightrider”. Well, James had all the gadgets you might need in a watch. Some seem so unrealistic while we have the Nightrider figured out, we can make a call through a wristwatch and call a friend so much for Mike Night!

It is great to have more some uses have not made sense to me. Like what would you need to calculate urgently and have to press those tiny buttons to get the square root of 1005? Some watches will tell the cycle of the moon while some will tell the date, temperature even body temperature.

Tech over Mechanical Time pieces. My top ten.

I remember a very good friend of mine, my cousin now based in the UK, he had an infrared light on his watch; he could program it to be a TV remote controller. We used to have fun at the sports when we would fight over which channel to watch.

Let have a look at some extraordinary watches, my top 15 Brands.

  1. These are all great options! I am definitely surprised with the amount of variety that you brought to the table with this post. I was looking for a specific type of regular watch but you have brought a high variability of options and now I am struggling to pick the perfect one because there are so many options! This is a good problem to have ha ha. Thank you for this post

    1. You are most welcome, 

      I am sorry for the confusion, I hoped that more options could help give you variety and hopefully introduce you to new ideas. Maybe you are right lesser options could lead you to make easier choices, but I do believe that it is important to be exposed to more and have a bigger pool to choose from. 

      My favourite is the Swach any day any time, or maybe the Gucci oh, maybe the Diesel. Well, let’s agree to say Swach forgoing out, Gucci for at home and Diesel for work, Good luck finding your set. You are allowed more than one. As a collector, you might enjoy the variety.

  2. Thanks for the education on watches. These are all wonderful options. I am now more aware of my choices. All the best.

  3. Wow, what a great selection of watches to choose from! My daughter’s boyfriend has a passion for watches, I shall have to send her to this article as I am certain it will help.
    Blessings

  5. Hello, thank you so much for this interesting article. I loved the history of the wristwatch. Never thought about searching for this. I was amazed that this was already invented in the 16 century. My favorite is the Diesel Men’s DZ 4360 Gold Stainless steel. My husband is a diving teacher, this would be a perfect birthday present for him. Water-resistant 330 feet. Wow, that I call a deep dive. 

    1. Hi Monique, 

      I can see you know your timepieces. Your choice for your husband the Diesel DZ4360 is a great choice for its water resistance at deep levels. It is a real “DD”.

      Thank you, Monique, for taking the time to read.

  6. Well to be honest I’m not so into watches, but this article makes me pay attention to these watches you have here, I think they all are wonderful watches but I really love the Hugo Boss, will certainly share this, and I will try one too, thank you for sharing lovely gifts with us.

    1. Hi Earl,

      Thank you for your honesty. Reading through a post is a good start to regain one’s love for a great Timepiece. The era of technology has left many without timepieces. We say why do I need a watch if I have a Cell phone. I remember it is not as convenient to look at your phone for the time. Well, there is so much more you get from a timepiece than just the level of sophistication it gives its wearor. a gentleman like you will definitely look great with the Hugo Boss you chose. What a great choice.
