When one considers a watch in its purest function as a measuring instrument, its first and foremost task is to indicate the time by three hands: the hour, the minute and the second. That’s why many brands are highlighting the classical three-handed wristwatch. This development was reflected by the overwhelmingly large selection of such watches at this year’s Baselworld. All of these debutantes uphold high standards of quality, reveal great love for detail and embody a striving for visual perfection in each and every component. From the hands, through the numerals, to the wristbands, these newcomers combine sophisticated simplicity and a clear focus on function.
