For centuries, the intricacy, precision, and beauty of automatic mechanical timepieces and luxury designer watches have captured our imagination. The engineering and thoughtful balance of aesthetics versus utility that is present in these timeless masterpieces are truly awe-inspiring.

Over the years, we have been fortunate enough to be able to study, appreciate, and photograph some of the most stunning examples of both modern and historic horological wonders from fabled watchmakers around the globe. We created this gallery in order to share some of these images, and to give you an up-close and personal look at these watches. We’ve curated a collection of our favorite photos of pieces from A. Lange & Sohne, Audemars Piguet, F.P. Journe, Hublot, IWC Shaffhausen, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Omega, Officine Panerai, Patek Philippe, Ressence, Richard Mille, Rolex, & more.
