Ageless beauty comes in many forms; it can be organic, artistic, and even abstract. There are also very few occasions where watchmakers create sophisticated and classic designs that turn into legendary timepieces, remembered for years to come. Japanese culture may have influenced some of the designs on this list, but overall, it is relative to the consumers on what type of watch fits their taste.
Horology has never been so diverse before; technology has evolved to the point where wearing a tiny piece of machinery on your wrist can immediately raise your standards of being an enthusiast to a horologist. This may sound cliche, but an individual’s taste in watches will also reflect the knowledge and expertise of studying horology. If you’re serious about it, this list will help you take a step in that direction.
