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).
