At 35mm, the Nomos Glashutte Ludwig 205 is a classically sized modern watch. The design itself stands out against other Nomos models, it is simply the archetype of a classic dress watch. It makes a smart and stylish impression and will never go out of style. Powering the watch is the manually wound Alpha movement. Govberg Price: $1,450.
The Ingenieur Vintage 1955 Laureus Limited Edition is another classic time piece, this one inspired by the Ingenieur Automatic from 1955. The piece is limited to 1,000 pieces. The bright blue dial is a color of hope for IWC. Since 2005, IWC has been a sponsor of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, bringing communities together through sport. Engraved on the caseback is a special drawing is selected from children all around the world and is immortalized in the engraving, each year a new drawing is selected. Govberg Price: $5,950.
The “Vintage Black” Dark Side of the Moon was a 2015 release of the Side of the Moon collection originally released at Baselworld in 2013. The 44.25mm ceramic case makes a statement, not only with its size but with the coloring. The model channels the “what-if” of a vintage watch that never was. Omega has simulated patina in the watch as if the watch was released in 1967 rather than 2015. The patina is only simulated so while it looks like it may not glow, it is still fully illuminated at night. Govberg Price: $8,450.
The Radiomir Military Limited Edition PAM 587 is a limited edition piece of 1,000. The watch is manually wound, powered by the Caliber P3000. It is a pairing of both vintage and modern design from Panerai. The hands are slightly different than typical Panerai hands, these are pointed pencil hands, providing a sharp, clean look. These pencil hands are designed to match the period Panerai watches. Govberg Price: $9,950.
The Rolex Daytona 116518 is a modern 40mm watch, channeling the exotic dial Daytona’s released in the 1960s and 70s. In particularly, the watch was designed as a throwback to the style worn by the late actor, Paul Newman. The extended reference of the watch is 116518 PNBKS, one can only imagine what the PN is in reference to. Just like the older dials, this watch features a matte black dial rather than a gloss dial. Govberg Price: $16,950.
Released in 2011 as a novelty for Jaeger-LeCoultre, the Master Tourbillon is a special piece. The model references the 2006 release but is found with more manageable proportions. The 39mm watch nestles on the wrist easily and securely, especially when you see the high-grade 18k rose gold double deployant clasp. The dart style indices catch the light with every movement, drawing your eyes to the watch. Govberg Price: $39,500.
The Lange 31 from A. Lange & Sohne is an impressive timepiece making a statement on the wrist. Powering this watch is the in-house caliber L034.1, a key wound movement. Each Lange 31 comes with a winding key, providing more torque than standard hand-winding meaning fewer revolutions are needed to fully wind the watch. The watch features a grand 31 day power reserve. Govberg Price: $99,500.
