While you want classic timepieces, you also want watches that were created with modernity in mind, with contemporary designs and more advanced materials. You never have to choose between traditional timepieces and modern designs. “Technical watch” is a broad term, but look for futuristic design, extra functionality or exotic materials, like carbon, ceramic, and advanced metal alloys, that add to a timepiece’s durability. They are the perfect watch to accompany you on your next adventure, as they blend elegance, functionality and casual appeal. Think of a good technical timepiece as a watch that meets the needs of traditional taste, but made with today in mind.
