It’s time to put those dive watches away – autumn is here (kidding). But the new season does mean that you probably want to wear something that gives you that same warm, fuzzy feeling as a cashmere sweater or Sunday night football. To help you transition into fall, we’re highlighting the luxury watches we think would look great on your wrist all season.
Rolex Sky-Dweller ref. 326938
This striking Sky-Dweller just hit the vault over here at Bob’s Watches. The 18k yellow gold timepiece, with matching gold fluted bezel and champagne dial, are totally reminiscent of the golden foliage that will start to emerge over the coming weeks. Plus, the Sky-Dweller boasts the most complicated Rolex movement, meaning that you’re never going to run out of talking points when this watch starts stealing glances.
Tudor Heritage Black Bay Bronze ref. 79250BM
We’re big fans of the Tudor Black Bay collection over here at Bob’s Watches, and we are always happy to have more options available for Tudor’s vintage-inspired dive watch. The bronze version brings the case diameter of the Black Bay up to 43mm, and is powered by the Tudor in-house MT5601 movement. As an added bonus, the warm tones of the bronze case and brown dial and bezel make this vintage diver the perfect pairing for fall colors.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Céleste
Did you make it to the Venice Film Festival this fall? Yeah, our calendar was full, too. Nonetheless, you can still celebrate the star-studded event with Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new, Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Céleste in collaboration with the event. It’s literally putting a new spin on things, the orbital flying tourbillon actually spinning around the starry dial once every 23 hours, 56 minutes, and four seconds — measuring a sidereal day by the stars outside our own solar system. Out of this world.
Panerai Luminor 8 Days Rose Gold PAM717
You did a double take with this one, didn’t you? The Luminor 8 Days Oro Rosso PAM 717 that you see right here is actually a limited edition Panerai, showcasing that warm, elegant 18 karat pink gold case. But what really makes that rare case shine is the dark, equally rich blue dial with a matching leather strap. Only 50 of these were ever produced, and this watch here was never even worn. If you like it, move quick, it will probably go to go as quick as the foliage turns.
Rolex Day-Date ref. 118138 Cognac Dial
This watch makes you want to sit back in a leather armchair, grab a drink and smoke a cigar, doesn’t it? This Rolex President Day-Date with that incredibly sexy Cognac dial is the perfect companion for autumn. The 18k yellow gold case with matching fluted bezel only adds to the sheer luxury of this timepiece, renowned for being worn by world leaders.
Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 126715 “Root Beer”
Okay, this watch is everything you could want all year long, autumn or not. But you have to agree, that 18k Everose case and bracelet paired with a black dial and black and brown ‘root beer’ Cerachrom bezel makes it totally suited for crisp, colorful days and cool dark nights. Slip on this GMT watch and jet off to Vermont for the weekend on a craft beer tour. Or, simply head out your local whiskey bar. You’re going to turn heads either way.
Tudor Heritage Black Bay ref. 79220R
If you’re a fan of the colors brought on by autumn, this Heritage Black Bay by Tudor with a deep red bezel is going to compliment your taste very well. And I know we said it was time to put your dive watches away, but it’s kind of hard to resist with this sporty yet refined timepiece that’s totally fitting for fall. And while you may be inspired to buy this watch now, we guarantee you’ll be wearing this watch all year long.
