In Hindsight: New Series On WatchTime

Our focus is often on the here and now or on the future. Especially when a big event, like Watches & Wonders, is just around the corner, the latest and greatest watches are in the spotlights. They are fresh, they are new, and because of that, they are exciting. While it is very important to highlight these new watches, I have learned that reflection often takes some time. This is also why we are launching a new series on WatchTime called “In hindsight.”

As you might expect from the title, we are not going to discuss brand new watches but highlight models that have been around for a while. They can still be part of a current collection or recently discontinued, but they all share that they deserve a second look. The reason for this can vary. Some watches we might not be that excited about when they initially launched or have been generally overlooked, which is an easy thing to do when, like at Watches & Wonders, there is an avalanche of new models. Others might have been setting trends or became important cornerstones for brands.

Also, opinions change, even for us at WatchTime. Sometimes it can be because we simply have been able to spend more time with a certain model or get a better understanding of them because of their successors. By looking at these watches again, we can come to new conclusions and insights that we think are valuable to share, in particular in times when we are at the threshold when many new models are about to be launched in Geneva.

What watch(es) do you suggest to be featured in this new series of articles? Let us know in the comments, and who knows, we might look at them “in hindsight”.

  1. Sounds like a great idea, I like the real old watches (pocket style).

    I really enjoy reading about the very expensive watches that are reviewed. I am lucky to have been able to purchase several over the years. I have started to introduce my Grand-Children to the idea that there are some very good and some very great watches to have and enjoy. I have also passed a few of my collectibles on to several grandchildren so that they can appreciate the benefits of quality watches.
