5 Moments in Your Life You’d Want to Commemorate with a Mechanical Watch

In this day and age, many people prefer digital watches over mechanical watches. While we can’t deny the usefulness of the former, they do have short lifespans: just like any smartphone, they’ll get slower and function less efficiently over the span of a few years. It’ll also stop getting technical support and servicing, eventually forcing you to buy a new one.

Mechanical watches, on the other hand, are built to last, with some of them specifically with complications that’ll last a century or two, like the perpetual calendar. So if you’re looking to commemorate a momentous occasion in your life with something that will withstand the tests of time, a mechanical watch is one of your options.


There are a few better feelings out there than that of both pride and relief when you walk onto that stage to shake the hand of your university’s president while he gives you your hard-earned degree. After many sleepless nights spent working on your projects or studying for your tests, you’ve achieved what for many is the culmination of their academic careers.

To commemorate the moment and stand as a symbol of your hard work, a mechanical watch would be the perfect reward. We suggest a piece that will represent a graduate’s hopes and dreams—without being overly extravagant: the Longines Hydroconquest Automatic in 44mm. It’s a diving watch, but given that it’s probably the first watch you’ve bought for yourself, feel free to wear it proudly with a stylish business casual ensemble to your first job.

For years, you’ve worked hard and made your way up the corporate ladder. Now, after all those hours you’ve clocked in, you’re finally getting The Promotion. You’ll have more duties, more responsibilities, and people will listen and value your opinion even more.

Of course, you’ll need your own watch to keep up with the bigwigs. Or, you just want something to commemorate this milestone in your corporate life. For this, we suggest the Omega Speedmaster “Moonwatch.” With the classic black dial and steel bracelet, it’s subtle enough to be worn with a suit. But with its chronograph and the story behind the Moonwatch itself, it’s interesting enough to be a conversation piece before and after meetings.

You’ve found the person to spend the rest of your life with, and build a future with. Just as your make a promise with wedding rings to make your relationship last forever, a mechanical watch for each of you will be just as fitting to mark this special occasion in both of your lives.

For this moment, we recommend turning to Rolex for a pair that will perhaps suit you both: the Datejust and the Lady-Datejust. We think those watches, his in 41mm and hers in 28mm, in Oystersteel and Everose gold would look lovely together, and make for a duo as classic and timeless as your own union.

Having a Child

For this precious moment, it’s only fitting to get a mechanical watch that you can pass down to your child once they’re older. We love the idea of commemorating the occasion with a watch that embodies the trends and style of the year they were born.

For babies born in 2018, we have two recommendation that, in our opinion, represent the year’s trends. And yes, both of them sport a blue dial.

If your child’s a boy, why not a watch from Panerai? Specifically, their limited edition Panerai Luminor 1950 10 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio 44mm (PAM986). With it being an oversized Panerai—is that redundant?—there’s only a few watches that could embody 2018’s trends as much as it does.

If your child turned out to be a girl, then a watch from the Patek Philippe Twenty~4 Automatic collection would be perfect. The 7200/1200A-001 has diamonds on its bezel and a stainless steel bracelet; its timeless design will look perfect when your daughter pairs it with whichever outfit she’ll fancy.



Closing a Major Business Deal

Few things are as satisfying as finishing a project that’s been keeping you up at night for months. After all the arduous negotiations and meetings between two (or more) parties, you shake the others’ hands, sign the requisite papers, and begin a new chapter in your entrepreneurial life.

What better to celebrate than with a mechanical watch? We suggest the unicorn of Patek Philippe watches: the Nautilus 5711. It’s just as hard to get your hands on it as it is to get the approval of your business partners, so it’s only fitting to acquire one—or to at least put on your wishlist—as a reward for a done deal.
