I’ve written about my never-ending quest for the perfect evening watch before on The Watch Lounge, so much so in fact that I now pretty much have a list as long as my arm of possible candidates. Well, today, I am adding another name to that list.
Take a look at this handsome fellow. Refined features, attractive face, tough on the outside and delicate within, this right here is the total package. It’s also the brand new Captain Winsor Annual Calendar timepiece, a superb little gem that will be available exclusively from Zenith boutiques worldwide later on this year.
I think it’s probably fair to say that every serious watch enthusiast wants to have at least one Patek Philippe in their collection, I know I certainly do. Widely considered by many as the benchmark in the world of high-end mechanical watches, the brand’s limited annual production combined with the constant demand for their products means that even the world’s most affluent sometimes have to wait patiently for their opportunity to join the exclusive owner’s club.
Even for those of us who know we will probably never acquire one of the fabled rare references or uber-complicated pieces, the attraction remains just as strong. Why? Well, quite simply because Patek Philippe just makes exceptional timepieces, like the newly revised Ref. 5726 Nautilus Annual Calendar.
