SIHH 2019: My Personal Top 3 Watches At This Year’s SIHH

Following Jan’s top 3 ‘Noisemakers’ at SIHH article from yesterday, in this  write-up I’ll share my top 3 personal favorites presented at SIHH 2019. So without further ado, please allow me to share the few that have caught my eye.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpétuel

I think I may have stopped walking in the middle of groceries market when I saw this pop up on my phone.  This is jaw dropping gorgeous and the movement is something I can stare at all day.

A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon Pink Gold Dial

Having been a fan of the German watchmaker, they did not disappoint with this release, limited to 100 pieces with a 41.5mm case and thickness of 14.6mm while housing a perpetual calendar and big date display and chronograph.

IWC Automatic Top Gun 

While the other two watches are probably at the zenith of watch making in terms of complication, movement decoration and dial work.  These two were a bit beyond my mortal human budget.  Now, I have been a big fan of flieger/pilot watches and a fan of the IWC pilot line.  I am glad to see IWC finally producing this watch in their Top Gun line up as this was not available previously.  Beating inside is the new in house caliber 32110 with 72 hour power reserve.

What’s your favorite selection from SIHH 2019?

  1. While SIHH isn’t for the faint of heart, the prices on these are mindblowing. Great choice with the IWC pick, the 36mm ones speak to me loud and clear!

  2. Surprised and not surprised by your trio! 🙂 I figured you’d go for the new Lange 1 instead of this one. Was certain about the JLC. And was definitely expecting some Flieger action 😉

    1. That Lange 1 was a strong contender but the chronograph perpetual calendar was too much to resist hehe. I’m glad IWC finally made this watch and not happy because bank account shrank just by seeing this picture
