Watch Yourself

Your timepiece says much more about you than, "You’re late".

Glashutte PanoMaticChrono
Price: $47,000

Talk about using your time wisely. This platinum timepiece’s winding mechanism
adjusts itself to the movement of its wearer. The innovative chronograph design
helped this limited-edition earn 2005 Watch of the Year honors at Baselworld, the world’s leading watch show. The intricate raised second dial is unique
to the Chrono, which features an exhibition back to display the bilaterally winding, skeletonized rotor with 21k-gold oscillation weight.

Nike Triax C10
Price: $159

For the marathoner in you, the Nike Triax maintains a continuous heart rate display to allow for uninterrupted monitoring. It can track both individual lap and total running time, as well as review times for up to 100 past laps. Not only does the watch have functional features and a sleek look, but you’ll barely notice the lightweight material on your wrist. You can even personalize your Triax on the Nike website, complete with custom color and inscription.

Cartier Pasha Seatimer
Price: $5,100

Local watch guru Mark Teguns marvels over the complex rubber-clad bracelet on this Swiss diving watch that also features a rubber bevel for easy
underwater grip. The one-way dive ring can be set to the minute the wearer goes underwater, so he knows exactly how long he has been submerged. To protect the crown, the Seatimer is designed with a bottle cap screw-on cover attached to the case.

A. Lange & Sohne Lange 1 Time Zone
Price: $30,700

Just as the name suggests, this German-made watch can tell you the time in every zone across the globe with the touch of a button. But aficionados appreciate the detailed hand-craftsmanship as much as the fancy doodads. Whereas Rolex produces nearly 850,000 watches every year, A. Lange & Sohne makes only 2,000. It’s no wonder, as each Time Zone alone takes six months to create—time well spent, as the Lange 1 was named Baselworld’s 2006 Watch of the Year. Teguns, watch buyer for Bachendorf’s, says the tiny intricacies on this 18k-yellow gold timepiece are unrivaled by any other brand. “It’s a dying art,” he says.

FOR HER
Tiffany & Co. Large Tiffany Mark Chronograph
Price: $6,350
For classic elegance, a woman turns to Tiffany. And who says diamonds are a girl’s best friend? This large, 18k-yellow gold chronograph is bold and sophisticated without the fussiness of too many jewels. The face’s elongated Roman numerals and luminescent dials are complemented by its casement, which was inspired by the layered construction of 19th-century Tiffany pocket watches.
