A Watch For Every Important Milestone
Published on 10 May 2022
Major milestones deserve extraordinary celebrations. What better way to mark a special moment in time than with a watch? These precious objects travel through life with us, bearing witness every step of the way as they tick through hours and minutes. Regardless of whether you’re getting set on the right path after graduation, getting hitched with the perfect watch on the wrist or celebrating a significant birthday in style, we’ve found the right timepiece to mark the occasion.
Top of the Class
Graduation isn’t just the celebration of an achievement, the culmination of many years of hard work and effort. For many, it also represents a symbolic change and the beginning of a new chapter. Celebrating with a new watch — perhaps even someone’s first piece of fine watchmaking is a great way to honour the achievement. The hard question is, which watch? And while there are plenty of fine options, Panerai’s hardwearing Luminor line boasts a combination of casual style, versatility and absolute unshakeable reliability that should serve its wearer with honours for years to come.
To Have and to Hold
In life’s long list of celebrations, your wedding is surely at the top of the tree. One of the last celebrations of pomp and circumstance, filled with symbolic objects; rings, dresses, tuxedos and we would suggest, a watch. For some, a fine watch is the men’s equivalent of the diamond ring, a physical symbol of a timeless union. IWC’s refined Portugieser is a great choice, dressy enough to pair perfectly with a fine suit and sure to never go out of style.
Another (frankly excellent) option is a matching pair of watches for the happy couple. There are a few outstanding options here, but it’s hard to look past Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso. In addition to the distinguished design, which is offered in a range of sizes and styles, the Reverso’s famous flippable case is the perfect choice for some custom engraving, be it entwined initials or a wedding date.
Celebrate in Style
Whether it’s the big 4-0, 5-0, or another milestone, celebrating a major birthday is always a good idea. Whether you’re treating yourself or spoiling a loved one in your life, a watch is always a thoughtful choice and something to cherish over the years. Vacheron Constantin, which is celebrating a milestone of its own this year — its 267th anniversary — makes for an exceptional gift. The pure and reserved design of the Patrimony is an outstanding choice and dignified as only a gold dress watch can be, while the FiftySix offers something with a perfect balance of contemporary flair and classic cool.
