Sleeper Hits of 2017

Sleeper Hits of 2017

Postby Racer-X » November 5th 2017, 5:55pm

by Felix Scholz "This might come as a surprise to you, but the luxury watch industry is a well-oiled, smoothly running hype machine. Every year at the two big fairs of SIHH and Baselworld, watch brands release numerous new watches. Some completely new, some only new variations. But, invariably, a small fraction of these watches dominate the conversation. And that’s no accident, as many brands invest much of their considerable marketing clout into a few heavy-hitting models that (they hope) will be total knockouts. That doesn’t mean there aren’t diamonds in the rest of the catalogue. Here are seven truly excellent watches that snuck under the radar … until now."

I just saw the Tudor Black Bay Steel at the AD and it's gorgeous.

That version of the Omega AT looks chunderous.

Is this good? I'm not up on Oz slang. To me, it makes me want to hammer a Cabriole table leg up Mort's ass.

I've liked the BBs I've seen a lot; it's nice to see that Tooter is finally putting in a date window.

I dunno about you guys, but it makes me want to puke.

Is that Aqua Terra part of Omega's puppy line?

Is Omega becoming the new Hublot? Massive, shiny and painted in play school colours. Pass.

The Tudor is OK but hardly groundbreaking. All that scale and heft for 200m water resistance. Come back, Breitling, with your 1990s 41mm Superocean, steel bezel, domed sapphire, dive extension, fart valve, bombproof build and 1,500m WR. All is forgiven!
