Our Top 6 Timepieces – S/S 2016
2016 is shaping up to be a exceptional year for watch enthusiasts. We’re seeing the market for vintage timepieces is still growing quickly as many buyers are using their purchase as a stable investment against an ever increasing unstable world. The first auctions of important modern and vintage timepieces start in February, with Antiquorum [in Hong Kong] and Bonhams [London], with Sotheby’s following suit on March 8 in London.
At the end of January, the first major international watch event of the year, SIHH (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie), held in Geneva saw several newcomers. With March nearly here, we’re excited by Baselworld which takes place between the 17th to 24th and always manages to surprise the market with some interesting new creations.
The retail market for new watches continues to flourish with many exciting new watch brands starting to enter the UK in 2016. And over the next few months, James Samson will be featuring some exciting exclusives.
The overall trend for Spring / Summer 2016 is bold colours and floral designs. We’ve picked our top 6 bold timepieces: 3 For Her and 3 For Him.
