We love mechanical watches of all sorts, but there are some watches that are a cut above. For us, it’s not just about the looks, or a single, superior characteristic; it’s about the history. There’s nothing like a timepiece that has an incredible story and lineage behind it. You can see their influence spiderweb it’s way into future watch generations. These are the kinds of watches that bring folks into watch collecting; the kinds of watches that make enthusiasts spend hours on end researching and learning. The Wound For Life Hall of Fame is our way of showcasing the best of timepieces built to stand the test of time.
The classic, purpose-built, and often underrated DOXA Sub 300T is the newest member of our Hall of Fame.
The Panerai Luminor Marina PAM00111 is the newest member of the Wound For Life Hall of Fame.
Just as timeless as a Submariner, the Seiko Diver’s 200m series is the newest inductee to the Wound For Life Hall of Fame.
The latest addition to the Wound For Life Hall of Fame is the Longines 13ZN, one truly incredible example of horological, in-house excellence.
The Lemania 5100 is the first movement to make it into our Hall of Fame, and it couldn’t be more worthy. Check out our full story of its awesomeness.
The IWC Caliber 89 is the newest addition to the Wound For Life Hall of Fame. It is a timeless example of quality, accuracy, and toughness.
We love tool watches, but they don’t always fit the occasion. Sometimes you need something a bit more refined, like the Patek Calatrava, our latest Hall of Fame inductee.
