Time to Clock off

For Her

Whether you are jetting off to New York or Sydney, you will want to keep track of home time and what time zone you are on the other side of the world. So I would recommend a world timer watch. For ladies, Patek Philippe’s Ref 7130R-011 is an exquisite choice. With a 36mm 18-carat rose gold case and a diamond-set bezel, it promises to look the part at night. Beneath the ivory opaline dial ticks an automatic movement that powers a world time function, and a 24-hour and day/night indication – for 24 time zones no less (£37,040, pictured below, left)

For ladies, this brand new stainless steel Longines timepiece from the Flagship collection is the perfect watch to wear all summer. It embodies elegance and class with the clean white dial and detail given from the 5 link bracelet, this watch can be dressed up or down for day or evening, and with it being brand new this summer it will definitely be catching everybody’s eye (£950, pictured below, centre)

This ladies Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust 28 is a 2017 launch with the larger case size introduced on the steel bezel this year, the fresh pink dial is ideal for a summer time piece and timeless model. Classic to wear from work straight to the airport, elegant for summer drinks and soirees and a suitable model that can be worn by the pool as its waterproof up to 100 meters  (£4,650, pictured below, right)

 

For Him

Another wonderful piece from Patek Philippe is Ref 973J-001: a yellow gold pocket watch of a type rarely seen these days – a real winner for any gents going to a special event (£28,320, pictured below, left). You can view our selection of Patek Philippe watches here.

When it comes to weddings, I would recommend a classic gents dress watch you can wear under a shirt cuff. The Longines Master collection fits the bill. A bestseller since its launch in 2005, the collection is elegant and of high-quality (all the models are fitted with automatic movements, from £1,210).

Summer often means travel and this vintage inspired 2017 Master Geographic Gents Steel model from Jaeger-LeCoultre is ideal for those relaxed holidays with the family or friends. Easy to wear and shows time zones from around the world should our discerning client need to know the time both locally and at home! (£7,900, pictured below, right)
