Us we all know that human wants are unlimited, new things pup up each and everyday to make the lives of human simple and bright. Fashion is on of the fastest things that rapidly upgrade or changes totally.
Accessories are one of the things that cant be opt out when it comes to fashion. Some of these fashion accessories are bracelets, ear rings, watches, necklaces and many more.
Today, Fashionghana.com is here to take you out in town to show you the ten latest men watch you should see and go in for.
1. Omega (Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary in gold)
The 50th anniversary of the first watch on the Moon was something worth celebrating, as Omega did in style in 2019, with a Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition in steel black ceramic, as handsome a watch as the brand has ever produced and just about still available now, for a little over £7,000. Pride of place in any 2020 round-up, however, must go to this 18k yellow ‘Moonshine’ gold piece. Limited to to 1014 watches, packaged in a ceramic 3D printed lunar surface box, it retailed for nearer £25,000 and sold out instantly.
2. Seiko (Prospex LX SNR031, 44.8mm black super-hard coated titanium case, black silicone strap)
Japan’s foremost watchmaker started as a jewellery shop in 19th-century Ginza, specialising in clocks. Now it’s famous for making outstanding watches at every price point, using entirely in-house processes, right down to concocting lubricating oils. Its new Prospex LX line is a three-part sports watch range encompassing land, air and sea, nodding to its Professional Diver’s watch from 1968; a fan favourite. Combining heritage looks with modern build methods, the Prospex LX SNR031 dive watch is a collaboration with the industrial supercar designer Ken Okuyama, noted for his work with Ferrari. Technical notes include a substantial 44.8mm case, a 5R spring drive movement, a 72-hour power reserve, water resistance to 300m and a titanium case that’s been “Zaratsu” (blade) polished, achieving that mirrored finish — just look at the light dance off it.
3. Montblanc (1858 Geosphere Limited Edition, 42mm bronze case, dark green woven fabric Nato strap)
If you’re jaded with watch cases in brushed steel, white/rose/red gold, titanium, ceramic, carbon fibre et al, take a look at this adventurous offering from Montblanc in bronze. Inspired by the spirit of early 20th century mountaineering, the 1858 Geosphere Limited Edition is dedicated to the Seven Summits climbing challenge to conquer Earth’s highest peaks; and only 1,858 of this model will be manufactured. Beneath its rose gold hands, the outdoors-friendly khaki dial displays the date, a second time zone and two rotating globes representing the Northern and Southern Hemisphere’s 24-hour time zones with day and night depicted in contrasting colours. The rugged khaki woven Nato strap further enhances its explorer credentials — how far you venture with it is your call.
4. Carl F Bucherer (Heritage BiCompax Annual, 41mm stainless steel and 18k rose gold case, cognac brown calfskin leather strap)
The resurgent independent watchmaker’s latest model ticks off a number of current trends. The 41mm Heritage Bicompax Annual is based on a Fifties’ archive piece with a “bicompax” two-counter dial, giving it a mid-century feel (tick); it’s available in two-tone steel and rose gold (tick); and it’s also limited (tick). There’ll be 888 of both the two-tone and steel models, determined by the company’s founding year of 1888, rather than out of deference to gamblers. It’s decent value, too. Behind that balanced dial, there’s a clever movement fuelling a chronograph and an annual calendar with date and month indications that only need adjusting on 1 March. The steel is a touch over £5k, with a premium for the solid gold detailing in the two-tone. Modest by the industry’s lengthy yardstick.
5. Vacheron Constantin
Not only is this an absolutely stunning piece of watchmaking, it will run for over two months, thanks to a clever ‘standby mode’ triggered by a pusher located at on the case at 7.00. The Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Twin Beat Perpetual Calendar includes an ultra-long power reserve when the watch is not in use, meaning the perpetual calendar needs no adjustment even if the piece has been packed away for 65 days. That’s an ingenious innovation, but we’re equally taken with this watch’s striking looks: the hand-guilloché slate-coloured gold and transparent sapphire dial, the 18k gold markers and the beautiful symmetry for such a highly complicated piece.
Style journalists love to talk of ‘trends’ in watches, as though at some point in the years it takes manufacturers to develop new products, rival companies hold a clandestine meeting, probably in the Swiss Alps, and decide that, for example, 2019 would be the year of the two-tone watch (rather than it being odds-on that of the thousands of watches produced every year, chances are a few will share design characteristics). With this in mind, we’re pleased to announce… that 2019 was the year of the two-tone watch, and that trend is holding strong for 2020. A particular fine example is the Tudor Black Bay Chronograph S&G. The title refers to ‘steel’ and ‘yellow gold’ and adds another extremely desirable model to Tudor’s existing line of extremely desirable models. Essentially a blinged-out version of their Black Bay Chrono it looks great on both a woven or a steel/gold bracelet, staying just the right side of being, you know, a bit much.
We love this watch. Unisex, inspired by skateboarding and, once you factor in the different number of cases, strap options and the fact it comes in both 35 or 38mm, available in at least 30 different combinations, The Grip is unlike anything else on the market – idiosyncratic, cool, and strikingly different without being silly – which is just way Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele likes it. The cushion case is a joy to wear, while telling the time using three disks to reveal the hour, minute and date couldn’t be simpler.
Last year, Rolex unveiled two refreshed takes on the iconic GMT: the ‘Pepsi’ (blue and red) bezel and the brown and black – both of which caused quite the stir. (We tried to coin the phrase ‘Mars Bar bezel’ for the latter, but it didn’t take.) This year, with perhaps a little less fanfare, Rolex delivered a larger, 42mm Yacht Master, a blue and black ‘Batman’ edition of the GMT (absolutely mega) and a seriously cool two-tone steel and 18ct gold Sea Dweller. But our pick is the Day Date 36, in gold. In line with the trend for Seventies-style watches, its green face and gem-set indices shout vintage chic, but it’s still low-profile enough to not make too much of a noise. Plus it’s fitted with the ‘President’s Bracelet’, the Rolex strap best loved by world leaders. Big energy.
9. Bell & Ross
Four years into the job and MD Davide Cerrato has hardly put a foot wrong. But it feels like everything the brand has worked towards has fallen into place this year. Frankly, you can take your pick of the upcoming releases but we’re pretty bowled over by the elegance of the Montblanc Heritage GMT. It comes in three automatic versions: a silver/white domed dial, a steel Milanese bracelet or a salmon-coloured dial with a grey alligator-skin strap. All three are 40mm, have Super-LumiNova hands and domed sapphire crystals.
