The Hodinkee Top Ten Watches is Shaping the Future of Watchmaking

— September 24, 2009 — Fashion
A watch can tell you a lot about a man (being one of the key accessories he can wear) so the Hodinkee top ten watches may just predict where men are heading, at least in terms of style. From the Urwerk 202, the Cabestan Winch Tourbillon Vertical, the MB&F Horological Machine 2 and the Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti 370, it looks like the path leads to ultra-sophistication.

Compiled into the list “10 Watches that Shape the Future of Modern Watchmaking,” Ben Clymer reports that the Hodinkee top ten watches show how “[t]he techniques of luxury watch design can be as intricate and delicate as those of a precision automobile, albeit on a much smaller scale. From crystal to carbon fiber, diamond to gold, the materials and make of today’s luxury watches spare no expense to achieve perfection.”
