The Wonderful Collection Of Watch Anish: 7 Watches That Seriously Stand Out From The Crowd
The Watch Anish Instagram profile and blog is one of the biggest watch blogs in the watch industry. The Instagram profile alone has amassed a staggering 1.7 million followers, including the likes of Hollywood celebrities, international sports stars and super high net worth CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. The Watch Anish corporation is captained by the enigmatic Anish Bhatt, who before starting the Watch Anish blog, was a brand consultant for the fashion industry; menswear and womenswear.
Mr. Bhatt left his corporate career in 2012 and set up Watch Anish, an online lifestyle publication based out of London, with the vision of bringing all things luxury and high-end to the masses. He began styling his own photo shoots and directing them to his own style and taste. What makes most of his images so special is the fact that each image creates eye-catching imagery that reflects the usually over-the-top lifestyles these watches are intended for. In any case, the Watch Anish publication and social media page has certainly created a platform that is well received by non-traditional watch enthusiasts and the next generation of young entrepreneurs.
Here are just a few watches that stand out from this publication:
Patek Philippe 5711/R
This list would not be complete without the classic Patek Philippe 5711/R showed off by the entrepreneur. Given the fact that this watch features several times on Instagram, it would seem that this is amongst a favourite in the collection. This Patek Philippe 5711/R ‘Nautilus’ is a classic design, originally released in 1976 and is one of the most recognisable and sought after sports watch in the industry to date. The watch features a self winding mechanical movement that powers seconds, minutes and hours display and a date display at 3 o’clock. The 5711 model is available in two steel variations (with a blue/white dial) and rose gold (with a chocolate dial). The 5711 ‘Nautilus’ model is a stunning watch ready to grace any watch collection.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked
The inclusion of Audemars Piguet is a must for any self respecting watch collector. It is not surprising then that Watch Anish has Audemars Piguet watches in abundance. One of our favourites is this 41mm stainless steel Royal Oak Openworked watches that not only looks great, but also is a feat of watch mechanical genius. The Audemars Piguet self winding movement, Caliber 3132, powers the time display function – which can all be seen from the wearers wrist. This particular model is available in either stainless steel or rose gold, complete with a slate grey open worked dial, glare proofed sapphire crystal and caseback and a screw-locked crown.
Richard Mille RM035-02 Rafael Nadal
The luxury watch brand that is Richard Mille has come on leaps and bounds since its conception in 1999. Since then, the watch manufacture has released some of the most exceptional luxury watches the industry has to offer – including the RM035-02 Rafael Nadal. What makes Richard Mille so special I hear you ask? Well consider their unique design, use of exclusive new materials, untold amounts of craftsmanship and low availability of their pieces. The RM035-02 is encased in a 30mm NPTP Carbon and Quartz-TPT Red which gives a unique appearance, whilst also making the material extremely durable and lightweight at the same time. The watch also features an ingenious rotor with variable geometry, meaning that the watch can be rewinded dependent on the users activity levels.
Fabergé Visionnaire DTZ
Fabergé are very much at the forefront of the luxury watch market at this moment, thanks to the Visionnaire DTZ. The watch won the prestigious award of best ‘Travel Time’ watch of 2016 at the Grand Prix D’Horlogerie De Genève (GPHG). Asides from the awards, this watch looks amazing and features a new logical and intuitive method of displaying two timezones simultaneously. The hours and minutes of the local timezone are presented with peripheral, open-worked hands rotating around a raised, decorated dome located at the centre of the dial. The hour of the second, remote timezone is viewed through a remarkable aperture at the centre of the dome. The Visionnaire DTZ is available in 18K rose gold or 18K white gold, and finished with an opaline dial and leather strap. This watch proves to be something that continues to surprise and offers something different from the usual.
