Spotlight on Minimalist Watches

As styles evolve and fashion trends continue to change, you’ll realise that sometimes less is more. “I am convinced that there can be luxury in simplicity,” says fashion designer Jil Sander. In a time of smartphones and technology, watches are no longer necessary, but are more of an accessory that is required to complete a look. Here we take a look at some of the most luxury minimalist timepieces from watch specialists Watches of Switzerland:

NOMOS Glashütte has become a big name within the watch industry, particularly with its minimal but classy designs. Labelled a dress watch which can also be used for everyday wear, the brand’s manually wound ‘alpha’ movement powers the Tangente. This watch is admired through its transparent case, sleek leather strap and reasonable prices.

Another simple, yet elegant, watch is the Junghans Max Bill Automatic. This German brand has helped shape the watch industry and always ensures every timepiece represents and focusses on its precision, passion, reliability and long-lasting quality. This model is certainly no exception. Though classified as a minimalist watch, the stainless steel mesh strap buckle and silver enamel dial are complemented by a seconds hand sub dial, with luminous hands accompanied with scratch resistant Plexiglass. This watch is perfect for everyday wear or to show off on those special occasions.

It’s smart black leather strap and white gold watch, with twelve neat roman numerals on a circular dial, give it a very minimal but sophisticated look.

Vacheron Constantin is one of the oldest watch brands still around. Dating back to the 1700’s, they are a specialist movement maker. The Patrimony small model is a hallmark of Geneva, home of the brand itself. A high-end, small timepiece from the much esteemed Patrimony Traditionnelle High Jewellery collection, this watch in particular is one of the more minimalist models from the collection, but it still holds a luxury price tag.

Lastly, but by no means least, the final minimalist watch we bring to you is the Piaget Altiplano. Piaget, who brand themselves the ‘jewellers of watchmakers’ is an iconic brand worldwide, known for producing revolutionary, ultra-thin watch movements which make their timepieces somewhat legendary. Priding its design on elegance and classic style, the Altiplano model with an 18ct rose gold case defines the Piaget essence in one watch.

No matter what the occasion or the wardrobe choice you make that day, there is always time for a minimalist watch. Whether dressed up and ready to party, or a necessity for more smart-casual occasions, the simple but elegant designs of these watches make them the perfect choice for any instance.
