  • IWC
  • Breitling
  • Louis Erard
  • Maurice Lacroix
  • Longines
  • Tudor Pelagos Ref. M25600TB-0001

    ₱203,500

    The perfect present for scuba divers. Its bracelet features a nifty auto-adjustable spring mechanism that allows it to contract when one’s wet-suit sleeve compresses at greater depths, and expand when one returns to the surface. The Tudor Pelagos also features a helium escape valve and is waterproof up to 500 meters. Its COSC-certified Tudor Manufacture Calibre MT5612 comes with a 72-hour power reserve. It comes with a left-handed version, too.

  • Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Ref. 231.10.39.21.02.002
    ₱233,750

    Sailing enthusiasts are sure to appreciate this watch, whose design transitions easily from the boat to the boardroom. Its lacquered silvery dial decorated with a vertical Teak Concept pattern is an eye-catching reference to the wooden decks of luxury sailboats. The Seamaster Aqua Terra’s COSC-certified movement is anti-magnetic, meaning it’s resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss. It’s water resistant to 15 bar, and has a 60-hour power reserve.

  • Baume et Mercier Clifton Baumatic Ref. 10436
    ₱159,600

    The Clifton Baumatic made waves earlier this year as Baume et Mercier’s first watch equipped with an in-house movement—as such, it’s a timepiece that any budding watch collector would be proud to wear on his wrist. It contains a COSC-certified movement equipped with a silicon balance spring, escape wheel, and lever, and offers magnetic resistance 25 times higher than the current standard. The Clifton Baumatic features an impressive 120-hour power reserve, and is water resistant up to about 50 meters.

  • IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Ref. IW327009
    ₱217,600

    This timepiece takes inspiration from the iconic Mark XI, which was commissioned by the British Ministry of Defense after World War II and used by the Royal Air Force. Since then, watch enthusiasts have loved the Mark series for its utilitarian design and focus on legibility. Its luminescent hands and large, rounded Arabic numerals stand out against the matte black dial. It features a soft inner iron case for protection against magnetic fields, a crystal secured against sudden drops in air pressure, a 42-hour power reserve, and water resistance up to 3 bar. Get it for the man who dreams of life in the cockpit.

  • Breitling Premier Automatic Day & Date 40 Ref. A45340211G1X3
    ₱237,200

    He’ll never have to ask what day it is with this beauty—it displays the day and date at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock respectively. The Breitling Premier Automatic Day & Date channels casual elegance with its white dial, gold hour, minute, and seconds hands, and brown nubuck leather strap. It runs on a Breitling caliber 45 chronometer movement with a 38-hour power reserve and water resistance of 100 meters.

  • Louis Erard Excellence Regulator Ref. 54230AA01.BDC02
    ₱133,000

    This minimalist timepiece makes an appropriate gift for someone who’s into horological history. Its regulator dial features separate hour, minute, and second displays: a central minute hand, an upper subdial for hours, and a lower subdial for seconds. This distinctive design harks back to when watchmakers used regulator clocks to “regulate” the watches they were working on. This manual-winding movement features a useful power reserve display as well, and is water resistant to 5 bar.

  • Maurice Lacroix Les Classiques Moonphase Ref. LC6168-SS001-122-1
    ₱131,000

    It’s not everyday you see a beautiful automatic moonphase watch at such a reasonable price point, and the contrasting finishes and colors for the silver minute, hour, and date circles make for a very legible dial. At the center is the moonphase indicator blending into a starry night sky. The Les Classiques Moonphase runs on an automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve and is water resistant up to 50 meters.

  • Longines Heritage 1945 Ref. L2.813.4.66.0
    ₱102,800

    This timepiece is sure to delight anyone who’s into vintage designs. As its name suggests, it’s inspired by a Longines model that dates back to 1945. It features a beautiful brushed copper dial, which goes beautifully with the trademark Longines blue hands and distressed beige leather strap. It houses an automatic L609 caliber, and has a 42-hour power reserve.

  • Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One Réédition Ref. 3258470
    ₱238,000

    Malaysia Tatler once compared this watch to the “perfect Little Black Dress” thanks to its timeless, elegant design. It features a black opaline dial with Arabic numerals, and runs on a quartz movement. Turn this timepiece into a gift she’ll cherish forever by engraving its caseback with a personal message.

  • Baume et Mercier Classima Ref. 10629
    ₱212,000

    If your loved one has a preference for rose gold, you can’t go wrong with this sophisticated timepiece. It features an 18K rose gold bezel and matching gilt Roman numerals on a white dial with sunray guilloché. Its self-winding mechanical movement is water resistant up to 50 meters, and has a 42-hour power reserve.

  • Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial 32.7 mm Ref. 424.10.33.20.52.002
    ₱187,000

    Blackened hands, diamond holders, and Roman numerals, along with a distinctive silk-like dial pattern add a modern edge to this timepiece. A round date window integrates nicely with the rest of the diamond hour markers. The De Ville Prestige features a self-winding chronometer movement with a 48-hour power reserve and water resistance of 3 bar.

  • Longines Record 30mm Automatic Chronometer L2.321.0.87.6
    ₱231,000

    If she’s got a penchant for gems (honestly, who doesn’t?), she’ll love this piece from the Longines Record collection, which features a bezel set with 60 Wesselton VVS diamonds and diamond hour markers. Its blued steel hands stand out against a mother-of-pearl dial which displays the date at 3 o’clock. This timepiece runs on a COSC-certified automatic movement with a 40-hour power reserve and water resistance of 30 meters.

No matter your age, a watch will always be a part of your life: telling time with an (analog) clock is one of the first lessons you were taught in kindergarten, peppered through lessons about the ABCs and 123s; children’s book series always have that one title called “What Time is It?” or something equally charming; and we all remember having that one (probably plastic) watch with our favorite cartoon character emblazoned on the dial.

In this day and age of the smartwatch and the inescapable mobile phone, however, the number of people who live their days by the hour and minute hands on their wrists is slowly getting smaller and smaller.

Admittedly, a working knowledge and fondness for watches is slowly becoming less and less common, but there is a growing group of young watch enthusiasts who have embraced the joys of this art. For their part, watch brands are studying and riding the wave of trends to remain relevant, and this resurgence amongst a younger audience is something we’re ardently championing.

Here’s a selection of timepieces that are up to par with the trends of the new generation.

Panerai Luminor Base Logo millenials

Panerai Luminor Base Logo

With its sleek design and larger cases, Panerai is undoubtedly king of the oversize watch trend. The brand offers timepieces that are more accessible for the young watch enthusiast, so If you’re an aspiring Paneristi, you can’t go wrong with the Luminor Base Logo. It embodies all of brand’s iconic aesthetics: the cushion case, crown bridge and dial all scream Panerai.

IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII millenials

IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII

This flieger style watch has a long-running history, with the first iteration of this watch developed in 1948 for the British Royal Air Force. Aesthetically, the design didn’t go through too many drastic changes, a testament to its timelesness. The IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII is perfect for the wearer who appreciates a sleek take on a historically inspired timepiece from a world renowned brand.

Tudor Black Bay GMT millenials

Tudor Black Bay GMT

Tudor is probably the first brand to be introduced for the purpose of being more accessible to a wider market, positioned as a more affordable option to its sister brand, Rolex. Tudor’s vintage styling, however, allows the brand to step out of its parent company’s shadow. Their most recent release is the Black Bay GMT. Although similar to a vintage Rolex GMT Master, it still features original design cues, like the split bezel color inspired by two iconic Black Bay models from the past.

Longines L2.759.4.78.3 millenials

Longines L2.759.4.78.3

Founded in 1832, Longines is one of the world’s oldest watch brands. Since its acquisition by the The Swatch Group, pioneers in promoting watches to literal children, Longines’ approach has evolved from merely targeting an older, more established audience to creating watches specially designed for young professionals. Their Master Collection, for example, embodies the manufacture’s technical prowess while aesthetically catering to a more youthful market.

 

Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris millenials

Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris

When you think of Jaeger LeCoultre, the first thing that comes to mind are the classic Reverso watches, more associated with the the older, polo-playing set—or vintage design enthusiasts. With the release of the new Polaris line, however, Jaeger-LeCoultre has rounded out its offerings with a collection ideal for the modern lifestyles. Equal parts sporty and elegant, the Polaris line also has the distinction of being inspired by original designs from 1968.
