Today, I am going to discuss my 10 favorite watches right now. Yes, right now. Did you know that your taste changes every seven years? It’s weird, right? But for now, these are my favorite watches. I don’t want to put them in any particular order.
Tudor Palagos FXD
The Tudor Palagos was introduced in 2012 for the first time, and it’s an absolute masterpiece. A full titanium dive watch with an extreme loom. But to celebrate the 10th anniversary this year, Tudor introduced a new Palagos Super Palagos 39. However, the Palagos I want to talk about is the FXD. It’s actually a really cool story about the FXD, which is a military story. Because Rolex made military issues of manner, these were watches that were used by the British Military and Navy. Rolex made watches for the Italian Navy via the brand Panagai, and for the French, Rolex used their sub-brand Tudor. This is a homage towards that era, a military issue dive watch for the French Marine National. I just like the design of the watch and the strap of that watch. The value of this watch sits between four thousand and four and a half thousand dollars. So, if you want to buy your FXD, go to Pride opinion.com.
Resin State Number Three
The Resin State is one of the coolest watches. The watch looks actually like a smartwatch or a digital watch, but it’s actually a full mechanical watch. When you look at the dial, it’s one of the craziest dials ever. It’s a full mechanical watch that is filled with oil, and the dial is fully liquid. It’s an absolute incredible watch. You can actually pick up a Type 3 today between 35 and 40,000 dollars.
Rolex Sky Dweller
I genuinely can’t believe that I’m actually putting a Rolex on this list. The Rolex I’m talking about is the Rolex Guide reference number 326934, particularly with the blue dial and the Jubilee bracelet. I absolutely love the functionality of the sky dweller. The sky dweller is Rolex’s most complicated watch, and one of the things that are very important for me is being able to read multiple time zones. Now with the Rolex Guide, I can read two time zones in one go. Meaning, I can put the GMT on my home time when I’m away, and I can put the home time or the time that’s on the watch to wherever I am. I love the functionality of the sky dweller, the size of the sky dweller, and the fact that Rolex in recent years has put that watch on the Jubilee bracelet, making this watch an absolute home run. The blue dial is something special, and it’s worth between 30 and 32 thousand dollars.
Patek Philippe 5935A
The Patek Philippe 5935A is a new world timer and flyback chronograph, 41 millimeters in diameter, a chronograph function, and a world timer. Being able to have several time zones on your wrist is a life-changer when you do business abroad. The current retail value of this watch sits between 50 and 60 thousand dollars, and I haven’t seen one of these watches on the market yet. But I can say with 100% certainty you’re going to have to be paying a premium if you want that watch.
AWC Pilot Perpetual Calendar
The AWC Pilot Perpetual Calendar in rose gold reference number Aw392202 is one of the most beautiful watches. It has a perpetual calendar, a chronograph, and a moon phase function. This watch is versatile, and you can wear it every single day. The current retail value of this watch is around $40,000.
IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Spitfire
The IWC pilot’s watch chronograph Spitfire is one of the stunning watches, with a bronze case and black dial and accents. It has a self-winding movement with a power reserve of 68 hours. The Spitfire is water-resistant up to 60 meters and has a soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields. This watch is worth between $6,000 and $7,000.
