Enjoy a timeless and elegant testament to classic watchmaking that attracts compliments as well as timeless admiration.
NIVEDITA GIRI

As a general rule, luxury brands have made high-end watches throughout the years. They have continued to design them to date successfully. For instance, Jaeger-LeCoultre was established in 1833, Vacheron Constantin in 1755, and Audemars Piguet in 1875. Let’s have a look at some of the names you should know in the world of luxury watches. Here the focus is on the ideal selection for men. It seems that even current advancements in technology could not drive the classic watches out of fashion; luxury watches are still coveted items for wealth and sumptuousness.

ALPINA STARTIMER PILOT

With an aviation history spanning back decades and covering everything from air force issued timepieces to partnerships with air racing, Alpina is no stranger to the pilot watch field. Its latest release, the limited-edition Alpina Startimer Pilot Heritage, helps to celebrate that long legacy with a vintage-inspired reimagining of a classic early 20th century pilot watch design. The 44mm stainless steel case is a throwback to the early days of oversized pilot watch cases, with a sloping smooth bezel, tapering lugs, and rounded case sides. While a first glance might suggest a quickset hour hand or a date corrector, this undersized button actually releases the hunter-style case back, revealing the sapphire display window underneath. It’s a playful throwback to the early days of wristwatches, and while less common than a simple display caseback today should make for a fun conversation piece.

GONE ARE THE DAYS...

Games for children now-a-days are confined only to the virtual world of video games. Probably because of the rapid infrastructural growth that has left only a few parks for children to go out or maybe the technological enhancement is to be blamed. In whichever case, names like Lagori, Kancha, Gillidanda, Kho Kho have become far from recognition to the kids of the future generation.
