Worst Watch of SIHH 2018?

Post by matt.wu » Mon Jan 15, 2018 1:38 pm

I've been out all day, so I haven't gone through the majority of SIHH releases yet, but what do you guys think is the worst so far?

Of the ones I've seen, this one struck me as particularly offensive.

couldn't they have put sharks on the bezel or crown guard or something? the hammerheads seem very subtle.

Flipping through IG, here are a few other standouts.

Montblanc may have had some winners, but I'm not sure what's going on with this one:

There is no amount of brand horological street cred that makes this one okay:

Roger Dubuis hasn't been relevant for awhile, and this one isn't doing them any favors:

Looks like a lot of hallucinogens been ingested in the design stage...

^ Agreed. Bad.

The big date big pilots are horrible "updates" as well.

It's definitely not "timeless" that's for sure. I think we're watching the watch fad die.

How did that BP come into existence? Dumb subdial, terrible date location. The Big Pilot doesn’t need a date. In fact, I don’t think it should have one at all. And it needs a central large sweeping second hand. This is just horrible all the way around. Whoever decided to take this from paper to production deserves to be canned. Or to be made to wear this watch forever.

That's a whole lotta ugly. Don't think the IWC is as bad as the others ... but it won't win any beauty contests.

Who designs this crap? After they made the UN, did everyone walk away and say, that's a winner---

It's almost like the watch market is thoroughly saturated and now they're trying for the people that have no taste in an effort to extend their reach just that tiny bit more ...
