A Simpler Time for Men’s Watches


By de Boulle on August 5th, 2014

Sometimes, less is more. That  seems to be the current trend in the higher echelons of horology.

Despite the world being enthralled by technological advances, the finest watchmakers stick to relatively simple designs. They believe that their costumers are not looking to be flashy. The US President of Patek Philippe, Larry Pettinelli, says “Our customers aren’t usually trying to show the world that they’ve made it, most people don’t recognize our watches from 10 feet away unless they’re collectors.”

Here are some examples of Patek Philippe’s latest timepieces:

These pieces are beautiful and amazingly built– everything you have come to expect from Patek. They are not over the top  and people enjoy that. Even complicated-watch fans are starting to acknowledge the absurdity of certain gizmos.

It seems that simple is the new way to go.
