It's A Date: 12 Luxury Watches With Date Functions
Launched at Baselworld as a homage to Tudor’s heritage, the 1926 is poised to be a hot seller this year. The date is presented discreetly on the watch’s embossed dial, a signature of this vintage-inspired line.
A. Lange & Söhne
The Saxonia Outsize Date with a white-gold case and a solid silver black dial has a large date aperture at 12 o’clock, which is beautifully balanced with a subsidiary seconds window at six o’clock.
H. Moser & Cie
Venturer Big Date Purity comes with the brand’s inimitable fumé dial, matched perfectly with a red-gold case and chocolate-coloured Kudu leather strap.
The ultimate retro watch, the Sixties Panorama Date comes with a cool green dial with a dégradé effect, which makes the green shade appear increasingly saturated towards the centre.
The Vanguard Glacier makes a bold statement with a glacier PVD treatment applied to the brand’s signature Cintrée Curvex stainless steel case. A discreet date window peers out at six o’clock.
With the new Navitimer 8 Day & Date watch, you get both the day and date. With a 29mm case, it’s designed for smaller wrists and is a perfect everyday timepiece.
Launched this year, the Ref 5205G-013 watch packs a myriad of complications within a 41mm case. As well as the date, this timepiece displays the day, month, annual calendar and moon phase.
The Defy Classic is for those who can’t decide between a sporty or a classic watch. It comes in a 41mm brushed-titanium case with a blue sunray-patterned dial and a date indication at three o’clock.
The Boy.Friend Tweed is for those who want something feminine but not necessarily delicate. It comes with a beige-gold case, a diamond-set bezel, an opaline guilloché dial, and a soft tweed bracelet.
The LUC XPS 1860 Officer is rather stunning with its honeycomb hand-guillochéd gold dial. A discreet date aperture sits at six o’clock right below the small seconds window.
The Villeret Grande Date Jour Rétrograde is a stunning watch with a double-stepped bezel, svelte profile and understated hands. It also displays both the date and retrograde day of the week.
Crafted in Oystersteel and 18K Everose gold, the Datejust 36 makes an elegant and versatile woman’s timepiece with its two-tone colour scheme and a 70-hour power reserve.
