With 2017 coming to a close at midnight Sunday, we’ve prepared a list of some of our favorite posts from 2017.

Looking back is, of course, important, and many of our old articles, even those that are many years old, still continue to be viewed. This is one reason that while social media has become complementary to our website, it will likely never replace it. Once an Instagram post fades away over the weeks and months, often times that is when a website article just starts being discovered. With this in mind, we look forward to the future, to 2018 and beyond.

In 2017, we continued to evolve Professional Watches with some notable improvements: we started producing full 4K videos and we developed a custom imaging system across the entire site that allows us to display our photographs in a way that we feel is best for all devices. Next year we will continue to expand our visual content – and going forward, we promise to deliver more content, more original images, and more videos than we ever have.

Happy New Year!
