For­get Switzer­land – Ger­many’s where it’s at for stylish, el­e­gant wrist­watches


WE’VE LONG LIKED Ger­man watches for their re­strained de­sign, lack of pre­ten­sion and good value. Trou­ble is, so does ev­ery­one else, and prices have risen of late, though mostly in line with the in­fla­tion in Swiss watch prices. The clas­sic Ger­man watch is in­spired by ma­rine chronome­ters and has a sim­ple, su­per-leg­i­ble dial with a ‘minute track’ around the out­side of the dial, and long hands that point straight at them for eas­ier read­ing. Three new takes on the clas­sic have just been un­veiled: here they are.
