HIGHLY COMMENDED: Luxury Watches of the Year, Wempe Chronometerwerke Automatic

0

Luxury jeweller Wempe is best known in London for selling top end Patek Philippes and Rolexes, but back in 2006, it started making its own watches and, now, 10 years later it has launched its first self-developed self-winding movement, the caliber CW4.

The movement is used in the Wempe Chronometerwerke Automatic, which launched this summer.

One of the most impressive features is the 92 hour power reserve, that’s close to four days, although owners may never find that out if they don’t take off the watch because the self-winding rotor will keep it purring.

The 18ct gold 41mm case is the right size for this uncomplicated watch that features only hours, minutes and seconds hands, plus a date aperture at 3 o’clock.

To see the watch with your own eyes, get down to Wempe’s recently refurbished Bond Street boutique in London.
