Monochrome has been making an effort of bringing you the most stunning watch photos , every week a new set from photographers all around the world. Whether the photos are made by professional photographers, like Bert Buijsrogge (check here and here), Ming Thein (see here) or Martin Wilmsen (see here for an example), or hobbyist who post iPhone photos on a Facebook group called wrist shots (check them here), we search for the coolest, most stylish and mouthwatering photos of equally stunning timepieces.
British style guru Watch Anish and his team, always create über-dandy-styled pictures, showing not “just” a watch, but an ensemble that is striking! Let us share a few of his latest artistic interpretations of watches in their natural habitat. Although the first photo shows exactly the opposite; a Rolex Sky-Dweller that is DLC black coated by Bamford, which is not on the wrist. Scroll to the end to see this very watch on a wrist. But first Peter Speake-Marin’s new Spirit Mark II, which we of course covered here on Monochrome (see here).
Next is a very nice example of a vintage Zenith El Primero.
One of the most impressive time-telling device of the last 5 year, created by Hautlence, and called the HL2. An avant-garde creation of this magnitude is of course covered extensively here on Monochrome (see here, here, here and here). This particular model is the HL2.3 and has just been introduced this January (see here for our report).
Classic and oh so beautiful, both from the outside as well as inside the rose gold case. Inside is where the L.U.C automatic winding movement with the for Chopard so typical micro rotor resides.
As frequent reader of Monochrome, you’re of course familiar with the out of this world creations of David Zanetta and Denis Flageollet, who together are the the creative minds behind De Bethune. Where Hautlence is a creator of Avant-Garde timepiece, De Bethune comes with the most exquisite technically innovative creations straight from their laboratories. This DB28 (covered here on Monochrome before) is a perfect showcase of what De Bethune is capable of.
Another highly technical time-telling device, created to be worn on the wrist. Watch freshmen will probably have difficulty to see what it is, how it’s supposed to be worn and let alone, reading the time. But once you take a closer look, a timepiece like this new URWERK UR-110 PTH will not easily bore you. Technical landscapes of slowly moving, rotating, parts, which tell time in their own unusual, yet very intuitive way.
As we promised in the beginning, we come back to the black DLC coated Rolex Sky-Dweller, now in its natural habitat.
