10 Instagram-Worthy Watches

Q Report Team
June 03,2019 -20 min read

We love the movements and the intricacies of luxury timepieces. But let’s not kid ourselves. A watch’s design, its eye-catching appeal, can make us either stop and stare or keep walking on by.


In this post, we’ll take a look at 10 Instagram-worthy watches. From the classic Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso 1931 to the mind-bendingly futuristic Jacob & Co.'s Twin Turbo Furious, these watches impress.

 

#1 - Omega Speedmaster “Starmus”

Recently spotted on the wrist of astrophysicist and TV personality Neil de Grasse Tyson, the 18K gold Starmus seems the perfect accessory for a champion of space, time and all things science. After all, the Speedmaster was the first watch to make an appearance on the moon.

While this particular Speedy edition is not for sale (it features a commemorative caseback exclusively for the three winners of the Hawking prize), it’s eminently Instagrammable. You’ll just have to win!

 

 

#2 - Cartier Santos

Way back in 1904, Louis Cartier designed a watch for his aviator friend Alberto Santos Dumont. An icon was born, and over the years, Cartier produced countless iterations of the original model.

Its square, sleek case is striking in its simplicity. But this latest design also includes some appealing features. For one, the bracelet can be switched out without any tools, and each Santos comes with both a bracelet and a strap. You can also adjust the bracelet yourself, so you don’t have to go to the watchmaker for resizing. Opt for rose gold, stainless steel, or two-tone gold.

 

 

 

 

#3 - Jacob & Co.'s Twin Turbo Furious

Ready to buck tradition? This Instagram-worthy wristwatch will have fellow timepiece connoisseurs zooming in to see the curious mechanisms tucked away behind its curved crystal. The frenetic tourbillon mechanisms perform a crazy dance, mesmerising onlookers while they keep perfect time.

Cased in DLC titanium and black carbon fibre, the Twin Turbo Furious celebrates intricate movements. It’s the world premiere combination of a Twin Triple Axis Tourbillon and a Minute Repeater, and it’s glorious.

 

 

 

 

#4 - TAG Heuer Monaco Bamford

Light and impressive, the TAG Heuer Monaco Bamford is an unexpected revamp of an iconic watch. What makes this watch Instagrammable is an elegant combination of colour, luminescence, texture and bold design.

The large 39mm square dial features aqua blue markers and hands, and the luxurious black alligator strap adds an avant-garde touch. If you prefer a lightweight timepiece, try this one on for size. Its carbon case looks solid--and it is--but you can forget you’re wearing it until you catch someone staring.

#5 - Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionnelle Tourbillon

Seven years ago, the original Patrimony Traditionnelle 14-Day Tourbillon made its debut. This new Vacheron Constantin edition resembles the original in its bold classic design, but this new version is automatic; it’s continuously being wound as you move your arm throughout the day.

Luxurious inside and out, this Vacheron opted for a 22K gold rotor and finely bevelled edges. It’s poetry in motion, with flawless symmetry and a Maltese Cross on the opaline dial. The Vacheron has the heavy presence you’d expect of a solid gold wristwatch. What could be more Instagram-worthy?

#6 - Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Automatic

With this visually striking wristwatch, Bulgari has simultaneously broken three world records: thinnest automatic watch, thinnest automatic tourbillon and thinnest tourbillon period. Did we mention it was thin?

With a case made of sandblasted titanium, the Octo Finissimo has a skeletonised open dial. You can see in breathtaking detail the tiny gears that seem to bubble up out of nowhere. After all, the watch is so thin, it lies flat against your wrist. Its movement is a remarkable achievement, and it carries the aesthetics to match.

 

 

 

 

#7 - A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Luminous

It’s true that A. Lange & Söhne has only been making watches since 1994, but let’s get something straight. It’s one of the most revered watchmakers in the world. Since they produce fewer than 5,000 timepieces each year from the snug German town of Glashütte, each work of art is something special.

And this model ups the ante with its clever multiple time zone displays and nine hands. Somehow, the dial is easy to read, even though it includes home time, running seconds, home day/night, home date, local time, local day/night, local time zone and even a power reserve indicator. Phew!

 

 

 

 

#8 - Hublot Sapphire Big Bang Tourbillon Power Reserve 5 Days

It has the cool, casual appearance of a 1980s Swatch at first glance, but then you see it: the polished, Sapphire crystal case, the Skeleton Tourbillon Movement, the transparent, structured lined rubber straps. 

The finishing and architecture capture the eye; it’s all on display. No watch connoisseur can resist a closer look at the micro-components effortlessly locked together in a magical dance.

 

 

 

 

#9 - Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon GMT

With so much going on that the dial itself brims and bulges, this over-the-top watch isn’t just Instagrammable. It’s show stopping.

Truly a megawatch, the Greubel Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon boasts two double tourbillons, two time zones, a miniature globe and incredibly labour-intensive fine finishing. It’s truly architectural, comprised of an incredible 705 parts.

 

 

 

 

#10 - Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso 1931 Seconde Centrale

Vintage reins on Instagram, and this retro-style watch earns style points in spades. A tribute to the 1931 Reverso, this thin and powerful update (just 4.2mm thick with a 38-hour reserve) harnesses the elegance of days gone by.

Its white gold case sets off the chocolate dial with its faux patina hour markers and hands. Skip the bells and whistles and impress with the sleek sensibility of this inspired watch.
