Cool Minimalist Watches That Prove Less Is More

Cool Minimalist Watches That Prove Less Is More

by Martin Goh "Sometimes, you need to get rid of complications in your life and bring it back to the bare essentials. This goes for your watch too. Simplifying your watch gives it a clean aesthetic, making the watch suitable for smart-casual or formal occasions.

The watches we’re showing here today are the purest expressions of a timepiece: hours and minutes, possibly a seconds hand, and nothing else – as purity of design is key for these watches."

What is it with all the small seconds? I'd take a Hammy Intra-matic over all those.

Or even a Jazzmaster Slim

I only don't understand, what are the Explorer and two chronographs doing on that list, given the initial theme of the list were time-only watches with a minimalist design. While the new Explorer somehow gets me drooling, it's not really a minimalist watch. The original ref. 1016 was closer to "minimalist", but the current one... I can think of quite a few watches, which would fit the list far more than these three. Rolex Cellini Time, Montblanc Heritage Chronometrie, Eterna Legacy, Omega De Ville Tresor, Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36 or 39- just a few, which would fit the list far better.

I'm digging the Longines. Nice clean design and I love the dial color and strap.
