What has impressed you the most in the past twelve months? The auction house set a new world record, did Vacheron Constantin release the most complicated timepiece in history, or did the brand make an unexpected decision? Today, we reviewed the highlights of the watchmaking industry in 2015.
The most watched model-the Patek Philippe 5524G Pilot Travel Time Watch.
The most unexpected watch-the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master Everose gold watch.
A watch that redefines the history of watchmaking-a record-breaking Vacheron Constantin pocket number 57260 pocket watch.
Most Strange Watch of the Year-Urwerk Titan UR-1001 (Disclaimer: We love fancy watches).
The most promising brands-Laurent Ferrier and Cyrus-have different reasons.
The most expensive watch of the year-Jacob & Co. Billionaire diamond watch: $ 18 million.
The most expensive antique watch of the year-Patek Philippe Ref.130 stainless steel watch: $ 4 million.
A model that was unveiled in 2015 and may not be seen for a long time-the original Rolex Ref. 5513, a watch worn by Roger Moore in Life and Death.
The most incredible auction result-Tudor Kaicheng No. 1 Biwan, produced exclusively for Only Watch 2015. The current market retail price is $ 3,100, and the drop hammer price is 375,000 Swiss francs, which is a hundred times higher.
Unexpected cooperation-Hermes x Apple Watch, but in the end, only Apple really benefited.
The cooperation that everyone is looking forward to—because it was announced in advance, and because everyone ca n’t wait to witness, what kind of smart watch that the wise man who saved the mechanical watch (Jean-Claude Beaver) can launch: Tag Heuer Connected Watch .
The biggest regret-Rolex Ref. 6236 Jane Claude Keely watch is still not reviving, can you always imagine, right?
The biggest relief-the latest version of the Omega James Bond watch is really very cool, Ian Fleming is likely to have approved the 007 to replace the new hippocampus 300-meter ‘Ghost Party’ limited watch.
The most beautiful tribute, The Watchmaking Apprentice, tells the teacher-student relationship between George Daniels and Roger W. Smith.
Best Anniversary Model-Lange celebrates the 200th anniversary of founder Ferdinand Adolf Lange.
The ambassadors who won the best media propaganda effect for the brand-Serena Williams and Stan Wawrinka, both won the French Open, wearing their Audemars Piguet throughout the tennis season.
Stylistic trends that can continue to be supported-Fine watchmakers introduce smaller, more affordable stainless steel watches, like the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysical Observatory series of world time watches below.
Looking forward to the next year’s event-Dubai Watch Week, the world’s top watchmakers gathered for a whole seven days.
