Are you ready for fine high horology with a bit of glamour? Here are two of the more affordable and elegantly sporty models from two of watchmaking’s finest brands: Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe.
About Saad Chaudhry
I was introduced to horology by my father early in life, and a growing love for watches followed. I have visited manufactures and museums in Switzerland and attended watch fairs all around Europe. Having studied design at university, I scrutinize watches with an eye for detail. Now living in Munich, I hope to share my enthusiasm and experiences through my writing.

After a year of ownership, Saad Chaudhry has taken his Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M to the end of the world, a dinner at a yacht club, and on the open road as well as the open sea. The polished bezel has scars from doing battle against train commuters and car doors. The clasp has scraped against his keyboard more times than he cares to admit, however the watch still looks remarkably good. Here he explains why he bought it (and kept it) a year after the purchase and whether he would do it all over again.
Since Baselworld 2018, Rolex has subtly been revisiting its 36 mm Datejust models. The two stainless steel/white gold models revealed at Baselworld 2019 were the last of these, and Saad Chaudhry is pleased to now delve into the new and improved details of this important modern wristwatch.
The Patek Philippe Reference 5235/50R-001 annual calendar with regulator-style display was by far Saad Chaudhry’s favorite watch of Baselworld 2019. Here he explains why in great detail while providing quite a bit of history.
