Time is ticking. What better way to celebrate the countdown to the end of 2020 than with a new watch? Whether you are looking to go classic, vintage, or completely out of the wheelhouse of traditional horology, there are standout pieces for every wrist. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s traditional Reverso is a good choice for commemorating a special moment, thanks to its flip-face with a clean canvas for messaging or emblems on the caseback. And since only the elite few will get their hands on Rolex’s new no-date Submariner by December, Bob’s Watches is fully stocked with vintage references including an early Ref. 5513 from 1967. Or if you are looking to really wow a watch enthusiast and movement junkie, Ulysse Nardin’s unconventional Freak X tells time without hands.
Not looking to splurge this year? Montblanc’s handsome salmon dial chronograph comes in at under $5,000, while David Silver of London’s Vintage Watch Company has a new $73 coffee table book, Vintage Rolex: The Largest Collection in the World, packed with over 1,800 images of vintage Rollies.
May we all look forward to counting down the hours, minutes and seconds until 2021.
