Spring cleaning: OMEGA Seamaster

Spring marks the start of the golf season. Whether you’re heading to your favorite green or kicking back and watching the Masters Tournament, a golf-inspired watch makes the perfect companion. OMEGA designed the Golf edition of the classic Seamaster Aqua Terra specifically with players in mind. In fact, they tapped brand ambassador Rory McIlroy to help them develop the model. The Seamaster Aqua Terra Golf features a stainless steel construction and boasts two unique colorways that are perfect for spring. You can choose between models with green or orange accents on the dial, hands, and striped NATO strap. In addition, it comes equipped with the brand’s in-house co-axial caliber with METAS certification.

Tudor Heritage Black Bay

With spring comes one of America’s favorite traditions: the Kentucky Derby. For nearly 150 years, loyal fans have flocked to the races. However, the Kentucky Derby is just as much about fashion as the sport itself. Spectators come to the event dressed to the nines from head to toe. For women, it’s essential to sport an opulent hat and for men, a seasonal timepiece. The Tudor Heritage Black Bay is the perfect spring watch for the derby or any occasion. The rose is emblematic for Tudor, the Kentucky Derby, and the spring months. For the watchmaker, it symbolizes the elegance and grace of the brand’s designs. For the race, it symbolizes victory, and for spring, the rose symbolizes growth and renewal. For all these reasons and more, the Tudor Heritage Black Bay is one of the best watches for spring.

Cartier Ballon Bleu

Spring is the time of year when we celebrate the most important women in our lives: our mothers. We’d be remiss not to include a ladies’ model in our spring-inspired roundup. The Cartier Ballon Bleu is an excellent watch for spring, whether you want a seasonal model or gift for mom. The Ballon Bleu is a favorite among leading ladies, from Kate Middleton to Julianne Hough. Its classic round case never goes out of style, and its Roman numeral hour markers and sword-shaped hands make it distinctly Cartier. The Ballon Bleu also offers a wide array of style options. You can choose a timeless model with a bracelet strap and subtle pop of color on the blue cabochon crown. There are also bolder options for a leather strap in a plethora of bright colors for spring.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer

Spring is a monumental season for graduates. Whether they’re embarking on their first job or pursuing a higher degree, there’s a reason to celebrate. What better way to commemorate this special time than with a watch. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer makes a great watch for a graduate or anyone just starting their collection. It’s also an excellent seasonal model to kickoff spring. The sporty, nautical design cues of the Aquaracer work perfectly as you transition into warmer months. Plus, it offers an attainable price point to fit into anyone’s budget.

Rolex GMT Master II

While tennis season officially kicks off in the winter, it starts gearing up in spring. Even if you’re not a tennis fan, you may find that the warm weather brings more travel into your schedule. Either way, the Rolex GMT Master II is one of the best watches for spring. In 2019, Rolex became the official sponsor of the French Open, making them the official sponsor of all four Grand Slam tournaments. The official watch of Rolland Garros is none other than the GMT Master II. Whether you’re enjoying a match from the couch or taking a vacation, the GMT Master II is the perfect choice. It allows you to display two time zones simultaneously. So, you can track the time at the French Open or wherever your adventures take you.  

Breitling Bentley

Perhaps golf, horse racing, and tennis just aren’t your thing. Maybe motorsports are more up your alley. Spring is also the perfect time to head to your favorite speedway or simply take a drive with the windows or top down to enjoy the warm weather. No matter where your passion for the open road takes you, the Breitling Bentley is the ideal companion. For nearly twenty years, Breitling and Bentley have been developing models for watch and car enthusiasts alike. For the collection, Breitling combines design cues from classic Bentley models with the technical expertise you expect from the brand. Start spring in style with a Breitling Bentley.
