The Required Chronograph

Baseline collections need a chronograph. The two most desired chronographs are the Omega Speedmaster Chronograph and a Rolex Daytona 116520. Which you choose may come down to budget, but you cannot go wrong with adding either to your collection’s foundation[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”463″ img_size=”400×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Omega Speedmaster Chronograph” link=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”464″ img_size=”400×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Stainless Steel Black Dial” link=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”465″ img_size=”400×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Stainless Steel White Dial” link=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]2. The Everyday Rolex

Of course it is not enough to simply own a bunch of luxury watches, you actually want to wear them in public. To that end, a stainless steel Rolex Submariner, Rolex GMT or Rolex DateJust is a must-have. Fondly referred to as “beaters,” they are sleek but durable enough to take a hit, scratch or nick every now and then.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”467″ img_size=”400×400″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Rolex GMT” link=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”468″ img_size=”400×400″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust” link=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”469″ img_size=”400×400″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Rolex Submariner” link=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]3. The Elegant Evening Watch

Even if you prefer metal bracelets, you need a nice black or brown leather strap watch. These are the kinds of watches you would wear to a formal event like a posh wedding, a swanky cocktail party, or a fancy fundraiser. Our most-loved styles for these spiffy watches are the Cartier Santos XL, IWC Portuguese and the Panerai Luminor.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”471″ img_size=”400×400″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Cartier Santos 100 XL Automatic Watch” link=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”472″ img_size=”400×400″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”IWC Portuguese” link=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”473″ img_size=”400×400″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Panerai Luminor Marina Men’s Automatic Watch” link=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]4. The Conversation Piece

This is the watch you can gush over and even non-watch devotees’ interest will be piqued. These luxury watches should hold a personal value to you: maybe it connects you to a value system (like the American-made Shinola watches); is affiliated with a specific sport you play or love (like Tag Heuer’s Formula One watches), or was worn by one of your personal heroes, as is the case of TrueFacet’s founder Tirath Kamdar and his Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre watch which pays homage to James Bond. Regardless, it is a watch that you introduce as, “Oh this old thing? Well, actually now that you ask, it’s really cool because….”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”474″ img_size=”400×400″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Shinola The Runwell Sport” link=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”475″ img_size=”400×400″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Tag Heuer Formula 1″ link=”″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”476″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Omega Specialities Seamaster James Bond 007″ link=”″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]5. The Dream Watch

Consider this watch to be your White Whale, the rare and perhaps out of reach watch that you always have your eye on. Rather than remaining content with your amassed collection, keeping tabs on your own dream watch will motivate you to remain an active part of the watch collecting community: staying sharp on the latest releases, keeping tabs on auctions and networking with fellow watch lovers. Our dream watch? The Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 with a blue dial. It is considered by most to be the Holy Grail of watches.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”477″ img_size=”400×400″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” title=”Patek Philippe Nautilus” link=””][/vc_column][/vc_row]
