Best Weekend Watches to Wear
I have been meticulously testing various luxury watches to find the best ones to wear during this special time, when you can just unwind and relax. As featured on WATCHANIST Instagram.
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M 2209.50.00
One of the very last Planet Oceans I do appreciate wearing. Incredibly comfortable stainless-steel bracelet makes it a perfect weekend watch. Beautiful orange bezel insert and Arabic numerals give this watch some colourful twist. 600 meters of water resistance is more than enough, not to worry about dipping it in the water.
IWC Pilot Mark XVIII
Being a huge enthusiast of aviation and clear blue sky and wearing an IWC, dedicated to pilots is perfectly complemented combination. Extremely sturdy and comfortable black leather strap, black dial with over-sized numerals and hands. Great weekend companion.
Omega Speedmaster ‘From the Moon to Mars’
I love Speedmasters, purely love them. Clean and simple aesthetics of the legendary chronograph. This limited edition features chronograph sub-dials, depicting Moon, Mars and Earth. Whether worn on stainless-steel bracelet or NATO strap, it looks awesome!
Rolex GMT-Master II 16710
When you are tired of everything and only things you want is good old Rolex and NATO strap. Oyster bracelet is still one of the best to wear, however it’s always good to experiments with the set-ups.
Panerai Luminor Marina PAM00048
Simple and minimal design with military heritage. You can either love or hate them. I do appreciate this bulky and sturdy case with this iconic crown-guard and luminescent hour markers. Generally, very comfortable on the wrist, though I don’t like its double deployment clasp.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chrono
I’m not usually a fan of chronographs in Audemars Piguet watches, however this particular example just pops. It’s un-clustered, fairly clear in view. The bracelet is comfortable, I would put it in my TOP list of bracelets.
Rolex Submariner Date 116610LV ‘Hulk’
Submariner is Submariner, some say it’s too popular, boring. I find the ‘Hulk’ perfect weekend watch, due to incredibly positive colour – green, as main motif. Besides, it’s bullet-proof and water resistant, so you don’t need to worry about anything, you can just enjoy your time.
Rolex Submariner 14060
Pre-ceramic Submariner 14060, oh yeah! I can’t stress enough how much I love this pure, slick and classic wristwatch. Beautifully shining case, contrasting bezel insert and totally un-clustered dial. Just wow ! You can’t go wrong with this one.
Rolex Day-Date 18038
Sometimes, you just want to go through the weekend in Presidential style with solid gold Day-Date 18038. Bold, classic and elegant.
