Yes it’s that time again, we can vote for the TimeZone Watch of the Year! Every member of watch forum TimeZone can vote for one of the six preselected finalists.
Last year the Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire was elected as TimeZone Watch of the Year 2011. The line-up is mighty impressive again this year and we’re very curious to find out who will win. The finalist that receives the most votes by noon GMT on February 27, 2012 will be the 2011 TimeZone Watch of the Year.
On this page at TimeZone you can read about the finalists, so you can prepare yourself for voting. The A. Lange und Söhne Richard Lange Tourbillon Pour le Mérite is a magnificent piece of horology and so is the Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph. Less complicated but equally impressive and beautiful are the Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Tribute to 1931 and the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionelle World Time, which was the first wrist watch displaying all timezones of the world. And there’s the Grönefeld One Hertz…
Although these are all watches that I would love to add to our personal collection, the whole idea of this election is to choose just one. For me that would be the one with the shortest name, the most intriguing complication, a magnificent way to execute that complication and the first wrist watch with stainless steel bridges that are finished to a superb level.
