Less is More: Watches for the Minimalist

Nothing in the world is more divisive than an internet trend, and right now, nothing is trendier than minimalism.

Between capsule wardrobes and the Konmari method, there’s a lot to be said about the minimalism movement. Is it an aesthetic? Is it all about material things (or the lack thereof)? Is it a lifestyle choice that transcends the physical?

Of course, we had to jump in, but it wasn’t easy. We mean, we’re known for our love of something called “complications,” so going in the opposite direction was nothing if not a challenge. We soon discovered, though, that even some brands notorious for releasing intricate pieces have a minimalist side.

  • Panerai Luminor 1950
    It’s big, it’s bold, and, like the name suggests, glows. But it also has clean, sporty lines and barely any embellishment.
  • Breguet Classique 7147
    We love Breguet’s choice to simply sink the subdial into the face, keeping the look of this watch clean and simple—with a twist.
  • Vacheron Constantin Traditionelle
    How it manages to make an alligator strap look subdued is beyond us, but even with gold hands (contrasting against either a black or white dial), the Traditionelle stays true to its name as the definition of a wristwatch.
  • Patek Philippe Ellipse D’Or
    Inspired by mathematical principles and proportion, the watch house translated literally millenia-old ideas of beauty to create one of the brand’s most elegant pieces.
  • A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Thin
    Juxtaposing the impeccable engineering of its movement with a bare-bones, albeit elegant, exterior, this is the flattest Lange watch to date.
  • Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Thin
    A true minimalist would hold off on personalization because, really, the watch doesn’t need any more embellishment to look good.
  • Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1R.6-1
    Negative space is an integral part of minimalist design and this niche brand plays with the idea of it unlike any other watch house.
  • Longines Record
    A low-contrast choice for the person who wants something that goes with literally every single piece in their capsule wardrobe.
  • Rolex Oyster Perpetual
    Clean, simple, sophisticated: it’s one of the brand’s best-selling pieces for a reason.
  • Omega Seamaster Edizione Venezia
    Hear us out: While many of the Seamaster collection are dripping in jewels or decked out in the colors of the rainbow or showcasing hardware of the highest degree, the Edizione Venezia is a throwback to a simpler time—and available exclusively in, you guessed it, Venice.
