Trovist's Picks

The watches on Troverie our team is falling for this month.


         Troverie has been the full time obsession of our team for quite some time. Now — for the first time — we are sharing our obsession with you, and, of course, we want to make the right first impression. As I mulled over which watches to call out in what will become our monthly editor's choice column, “Trovist's Picks,” choosing what to highlight felt like being asked to choose my favorite child. Should I feature serious collectors’ pieces with exacting complications? Over-the-top, diamond-set evening watches? Of the moment diver watches, or wallet-friendly favorites?

        In the end, I decided not to overcomplicate things and instead thought about why we built Troverie and for whom we built it. The answer was clear. We built it for you, so you could find whatever kind of watch you might desire, whether it will be your first watch or your fiftieth. 

         Troverie, and TROVIST, for that matter, is for collectors; sure, but it is also for anyone who has ever been drawn to a watch because of its sheer beauty. So, to kick off “Trovist’s Picks,” I asked the staff of Troverie to take a moment away from building, computing, and designing to pick one watch that they loved — no questions asked – whether it was because they liked the particular shade of smoky grey on a Tag Heuer Carrera or had an affinity for power reserve indicators, like the one in NOMOS Glashütte's Lambda. 

Below are our first eight picks, straight from the Troverie team. We look forward to bringing you many more.

I'm an engineer and usually a practical dresser. Maybe that's why I'm so drawn to this very feminine piece. A little contrast is good." - PT

"A great classic sport watch – perfect weekend wear. I love the subtle details like the brushed links against the polished links."     - PK

"The El Primero movement – undoubtedly a  favorite amongst chronograph collectors, and one I've admired for a long time." - DL

"I love the featherweight feel of the Buglari Otto Ultra-Thin. The surprising delicacy of titanium combined with the stark architectural lines makes for a truly unique piece." - EE

"The color! A stunningly rich blue that shines against brushed grey ceramic. This is just an incredibly polished diver. " - SA

"This Bell & Ross won me over with the somewhat retro feel of the oversized applied indexes and numerals coupled with this creamsicle orange shade." - ME

"I've had my eye on an updated everyday watch. This particular Carrera is not too feminine but still has sleekness to it that I gravitate towards." - LC

"The Bauhaus influence you usually see on NOMOS watches is still here, but softer. The Lamda is certainly an investment dress watch... but a girl can dream." - JH
