Starting this month, the Luxglove team will pick out some of our favourite timepieces in the collection, and share with you why they caught our eye.
"The realm of artisanal independent watchmaking is absolutely fascinating, and F.P. Journe is without a doubt one of the masters that steer the industry. He has a knack for striking the perfect balance between design, innovation, and craftsmanship. What I love about the Octa Lune is the execution of the moonphase complication with a tinted sapphire disc. The platinum case definitely also adds to its collectibility.” - Talenia
"I’m German, It’s German.
The Lange 1 is truly an icon in its own right. What captivates me is the cleanliness and purity of the dial, demonstrating perfect balance and harmony despite being asymmetrical. Reassuring us that there is always order in chaos. Yellow gold is a timeless material which will always be relevant.” - Martin
"There aren’t many complications more useful and practical than the perpetual calendar. It tracks the day, date, month and leap years without needing adjustments. Though not the first brand that comes to mind when talking about high complications, Chopard L.U.C. demonstrates excellent value for money. This fine timepiece is gorgeous and presents an exceptional standard of watchmaking when compared to most watches in its price bracket.” - Tom
"The Santos’ aviation history is one I’ll never get tired of hearing, and its heritage unrivalled. I love the classics and this is as classical as it gets. Its unique squarish case is as eye catching now as it was 114 years ago, you’ll spot one from a mile away. A great daily timepiece that can be dressed down or up.” - Hannah
"2 words, outer space. The dial, wiped clean of all other unnecessary elements, making space a luxury and time the only constraint. Its colours remind me of the cosmos beyond our earthly home: broad and never ending. Admiring this timepiece puts me in a good place.” - Jon
"Black is my favourite colour, especially when contrasted against the warm tone of the rose gold case. The exposed bridges and gears of the open-worked movement come together to paint us a poetic picture of Breguet’s glorious watchmaking heritage.” - Kim
"Say what you want about Hublot but we’ll have to acknowledge the immense impact this ultra-disruptive brand has made on a very conservative industry. Their in-house UNICO is now a proven workhorse: reliable and easy to service. In addition, the scratch resistant ceramic case and bezel makes sure the watch always looks fresh and crisp. Why black? I love all colours...mixed together.” - Kate
