Watches I recommend for anyone to own? That sounds a bit presumptuous, right?
Well, it is, but hear me out.
In what might end up being a new series of articles here on aBlogtoWatch, I’d like to share with our audience the timepieces that we as individual watch lovers and experts would recommend to any new or veteran collector.
In fact, I would go so far as to say that no watch collection is truly complete without including most or all of these models. But let’s face it, is any collection of anything ever really complete? Let’s hope not.
People ask me all the time what watches they should buy at all types of price points. This list of watches is meant to offer something for everyone, but at the same time, there is no watch on here — no matter how inexpensive or luxurious — that one collector cannot enjoy at the same time in the same collection.
This list is also subjective and reflects my personal opinions. If you disagree, that’s cool — it only means we have different tastes. All I can offer people is the accumulation of my experience and education in watches to help recommend what I think are some of the most important types of watches around. You might even see some of these same groupings in other watch lists here on aBlogtoWatch. The “Top 10 Living Legend Watches To Own” article is one that comes to mind.
With that said, while you might have your own list of watches that are “must haves” for anyone, you really can’t disagree with my list of 10 watches because I am presenting my personal opinion (and I’m not lying), and this is what I recommend. I do, however, really want to hear about your own list in the comments below and am curious to see what watches show up on list after list. By the way, there are plenty of amazing watches that I love and would easily recommend that aren’t on this list. Timepieces that don’t make the list are simply ones that I wouldn’t recommend as universally.
