Wearable men's watches from the SIHH salon

Beyond the wildly complicated and million-dollar babies, I predict these wearable, affordable watches will fly off the shelves this year.

  • Now that Panerai has its own manufacture, the Luminor Submersible 1950 launched at the SIHH is decked out with an in-house automatic calibre with a 3-day power reserve and water-resistance to 300 metres (€14,000).
  • A sign of the current situation in watchmaking is the incorporation of stainless steel models by high-end brands at entry-level prices. Parmigiani has j produced a version of its best-selling, ultra-thin Tonda watch in steel with a very attractive price tag of £7,950.
  • Girard-Perregaux returned to the SIHH after a hiatus of four years with a consolidated Laureato collection. Unlike its 1975 quartz ancestor, the new 42mm Laureato is equipped with an in-house mechanical automatic movement and is just 10.88mm in height (SFr. 10,400).
  • Celebrating 25 years of the Master Control collection, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched three special-edition watches at the SIHH with vintage-inspired aesthetics. This GMT model, the Master Control Geographic watch, features a second time zone function (£7,900).
  • Montblanc's TimeWalker collection for 2017 bristles with confidence. This 43mm steel TimeWalker Chronograph Automatic model recalls the golden years of motoring, with vintage car codes replicated throughout the watch (£3,420).

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos with over 5 million views and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform and help us grow our business to the next stage.
