From breathtaking photography to little-known insights into iconic watches, Instagram is just the place for a watch enthusiast. Of course, it is also awash with show-offs, but, on the flip side, there are also accounts that sort of not only keep you clued into the watch scene, but also expand your horological universe, so to speak. Here are some of them.
Anish Bhatt, @watchanish
About a decade ago, London-based Anish Bhatt quit his job and teamed up with two photographers to document what young and trendy men were wearing on their wrists and blog about it. Today, with 1.7 million followers, including CEOs of multinational corporations, footballers, and movie stars, a bevy of luxury watch as well as clothing brand tie-ups and a jet setting lifestyle (pre-Covid), the stylish watch enthusiast sets the benchmark for aspiring influencers. Bhatt’s feed features glimpses into a life of affluence (think Pateks and fresh oysters) as well first-looks at some extremely covetable—and high end—watches.
