Click here to follow AskMen Fashion onTwitter.We asked five of the world's most respected watchexperts -- who also happen to be regular AskMen contributors -- to share their top pickfrom the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), a major Swiss trade showmost men can only dream of attending. Here's what they had to say.Benjamin Clymer's Pick: Tank Louis Cartier XL Slimline

There are so manywatches out there, yet so few truly matter. Perhaps the watch that matters most is theCartier Tank. After all, it was a tank that Alberto Santos-Dumont first strapped to hiswrist, and in doing so launched the concept of the commercialized wristwatch. This year,Cartier released an absolutely stunning traditional tank in the Louis Cartier line(initially created in 1922 as "the ultimate watchmaker's manifesto of elegance andtimelessness"). Dubbed the Tank Louis Cartier XL, this watch is modern in size,traditional in design and elegant in execution. It uses an ultra-thin manually woundmovement borrowed from Richemont sister Piaget, and is actually now the thinnest piece inthe Cartier wristwatch collection. It is available only in a pink-gold case for $14,200 --a small price to pay for what is, in my opinion, the truest interpretation of the originalCartier tank, the watch that started it all.Timothy Barber's Pick: Montblanc TimeWriter II Bi-Frequence 1000

SIHH 2012 has beenvery much about the “superwatch” -- the kind of emblematic timepiece whoseoutrageously advanced engineering is matched by a suitably stratospheric price andextremely limited production run. Of these, the one that leapt out above the rest isMontblanc’s Timewriter II Bi-Frequence 1000 (and breathe). This is a chronographthat can measure to 1-1,000th of a second, something TAG Heuer achieved last year with itsMikrotimer, but with a chronograph power reserve of a couple of minutes. Montblanc’schronograph will run for 45 minutes, and it’s production-ready. It’s also verysnazzily styled, with on-trend skeletonization, bold red-on-black coloring and adashboard-style indicator at 12 o’clock for reading those millennialmicroseconds.Frank Geelen's Pick: Montblanc TimeWalker TwinFly GreyTech

The new MontblancTimeWalker TwinFly GreyTech might be one of those great finds that somehow fliesunder the radar. The GreyTech is the latest limited edition of the TimeWalker TwinFly,which has been finished in a monochrome gray color scheme. Since I have a website namedMonochrome, this should, of course, be my pick from SIHH. No tourbillon, no minuterepeater, but a great-looking chronograph with a magnificent in-house movement. It has twomainspring barrels, offering a power reserve of 72 hours, and a second time zone, which isgreat when traveling. The chronographfunction is activated through a column wheel, which is considered to be the pinnacle byconnoisseurs.Jason Heaton's Pick: Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Vintage Chronograph

Of all the greattimepieces introduced at the 2012 SIHH, my favorite is the Jaeger-LeCoultreDeep Sea Vintage Chronograph. While this watch looks old, it’s not. In fact,it’s not even based on any historic chronograph from JLC. But it takes the 41-mmcase from the famous 1950s Deep Sea Alarm and fills it with one of the finest chronographmovements made, Jaeger’s own dateless, two-register Calibre 751G. The creamyluminescent markers, elegant dial script and Plexiglas crystal lend such a vintage vibe,I’d be afraid to get this dive chronograph wet.Robert-Jan Broer's Pick: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak comes in a lot of flavors, especiallythe sporty Offshore. The stealthiest Royal Oak Offshore was -- till now -- its stainlesssteel Diver (ref.15703ST). During the SIHH 2012 exhibition in Geneva, Audemars Piguetintroduced a new Offshore Diver that makes it even stealthier, as the case is made out offorged carbon and the bezel out of black ceramic. This means no more scratches on yourRoyal Oak Offshore (the stainless-steel versions tend to be real scratch magnets). Thespecifications of this watch remain the same as the stainless-steel version, except forthe price. RELATED VIDEO:Check Out This Recap Of SIHH 2012 Continue Reading ]More...[/url]
