Worthy’s Watches of The Week

Worthy Magazine’s renaissance man, Marcus Williams, is back with another installment of worthy watches. Enjoy.

This first watch is apparently just a concept watch at the moment, however, it is way too cool to leave out. The Aurora watch is faceless and also backless. “Well, how do you know what time it is?” you may be asking yourself. With just one touch two beams of light appear to indicate the time. The red laser shows the minute and the blue displays the hour. I don’t know if we will ever actually see this particular watch on the market, but if so I will be the first in line to get one… Or two.

The HLQ series of watches from Hautlence is simply beautiful. The HLQ 6 is my personal favorite within this series. This timepiece looks as if it could double as a time machine. It features a combination of rose gold and black gold on the case and a hand stitched strap made from Louisiana alligator. Though the look seems complex, this watch is very practical and easy to read with separate dials for hours, minutes, and seconds. The HLQ is not at all bulky and yet the depth it displays is amazing.

Tag Heuer’s Monaco V4 is a watch with plenty of personality. It is one of the watches featured in Steve Mcqueen’s Racing Series. It is simple in its symmetry yet complex in its mechanisms. It functions like a traditional automatic watch though it is the first watch to driven by belt transmission. The hands are the only things that are common about the face of this watch. It features the traditional minute and hour hands together with a separate second hand dial so time should be easy enough to tell, if u can take your eyes off the surrounding details long enough to actually focus on reading the time. And to insure that you remain as fixated on its inner workings as possible, both sides of the beveled sapphire crystal has been given anti-reflective treatment.

The Ora Unica, designed by Denis Guidone, began as just another concept watch. Now it is actually on the market brought to you by NAVA Design. It is a minimalist’s dream watch. It is very simple and so artistic it looks as if it should be mounted on a wall rather than worn on someone’s wrist. At first glance, reading the time may seem complicated. However, it is very easy to determine the time as the inner end of the circular line points to the hour and the outer end points to the minute. Owning one of these works of wrist art will cost you between $130 and $150 which is pretty reasonable.

The last watch is just dandy. Or rather, it is the Dandy, from French watchmaker Chaumet. I literally sat and just stared at this one for a few minutes. It’s just too beautiful in my opinion, never mind the title. It has a jumping hours window on the left side and a seconds dial on the right. It has a black patent leather and satin tuxedo strap and a solid 18k rose gold case. There is not much more to say about this piece. Just look at it. And when you’re done you can visit http://www.chaumet.com for more on this watch.
