The 5 Best Watches: a Subjective Retrospect

The Personal Highlights Of Chronos Chief Editor RÜDiger Bucher

What were the most important watches of the year 2016? A question I asked myself just before the end of the year, as every year. In the following my own personal selection, whereby I consciously renounced great complications – which would be still a separate topic.

# 5 Of The Best Watches 2016: Iwc Aquatimer Chronograph Edition La Cumbre Volcano

At IWC, 2016 the focus was actually on the new fly clocks. But I liked a special edition of the Aquatimer. The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition La Cumbre Volcano convinces with the cool color combination. The dark red diving scale perfectly harmonizes with the black, rubber-coated steel housing and the matching black rubber band. Also technically the watch has a lot to offer, it is nevertheless equipped with the IWC’s own chronograph movement 89365 with flyback function. The rotating bezel is moved by the hand, but the inner bezel runs counterclockwise with the dive time indicator so that the diver does not inadvertently move up too early. With my taste, I am in good company: Even Bundestrainer Jogi Löw was in the European Championship 2016 in France with the watch limited to 500 pieces on the wrist. You can find out which clocks the Bundestrainer still likes, here in the interview.

# 4 Of The Best Watches 2016: Oris Carl Brashear Limited Edition

Here at JiBIN123, Bronze watches are a small, fine trend of recent years. Still, there are not many, but the topic is coming slowly, now also at Oris. The material is warm, but differs significantly from gold, and gets a patina over time. I like it especially when it is not high-gloss polished, but matt as with the Oris Carl Brashear Limited Edition. The 2,000 copies of this limited edition are devoted to a former African diver, who despite amputation made a remarkable career in the US Navy.

# 3 Of The Best Watches 2016: Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona

When Rolex brings novelties, there is often little difference, but the little is important. In the case of the new Steel Daytona it is the bezel, which now consists of ceramic. We already knew of the Daytona models in gold and platinum. No matter whether with black or white dial: The scratch-resistant ceramic bezel is a real gain for the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. As the clock in the Chronos test, you will find in the download for 2.90 euros.

# 2 Of The Best Watches 2016: Omega Speedmaster Moonphase Master Chronometer

That Omega’s  Moonwatch comes now with a lunar phase display, is quite consistent. TheOmega Speedmaster Moonphase Master Chronometer with Omega’s 9904 caliber is certified as a Master Chronometer, which means it can withstand magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss, guaranteeing a maximum daily gait between zero and five seconds per day.What I especially like is that the clock carries something like a secret signature: Only with a magnifying glass can one recognize that the famous photo of Neil Armstrong’s footprint is placed on the moon disk, about a little below the center. Just in blue, a fascinating watch, the Chronos in issue 02.2017 will test.

# 1 Of The Best Watches 2016: Hublot Big Bang Sapphire

Hublot always has something new to think about. In 2016, theHublot Big Bang Unico Sapphire camein a completely transparent case with a transparent silicone bracelet. The internal bins, which are typical for the Big Bang, in which themanufac- tured chronograph movement HUB 1242 with flyback functionis made, is made of synthetic resin, all outer parts made of sapphire. A whole new look and a stark contrast to what Hublot does otherwise: while “All Black” (black case, black dial, black hands, black indexes), whose first variant came ten years ago, could see “nothing” – now you see “everything”. A watch that is extremely polarized and not made for everyone. But there are only 500 pieces worldwide.
