There are 7 amazing watches in the world.
1. TAG Heuer Carrera.
This year, the brand known for its focus on avant-garde techniques has updated one of their most iconic sporting chronographs, to produce the best-looking TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 in recent years. With an aesthetic of clean refinement, the less-is-more approach has come up trumps in a watch that prioritizes robust functionality over notions of new-age minimalism. While the template of black dials with red highlights has been a successful one for the Calibre 16 over the last few years, this version has been updated with less busy dial markings and text. Additionally, the bold rhodium-plated indexes are less visually cluttered than the previously used Arabic numerals, without losing any of their high-contrast impacts. You may buy that.
2. Omega Speedmaster
Omega Speedmaster is a line of chronograph wristwatches produced by Omega SA. While chronographs have been around since the late 1800s, Omega first introduced this line of chronographs in 1957. Since then, many different chronograph movements have been marketed under the Speedmaster name. The manual winding Speedmaster Professional or “Moonwatch” is the best-known and longest-produced; it was worn during the first American spacewalk as part of NASA’s Gemini 4 mission and was the first watch worn by an astronaut walking on the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission. The Speedmaster Professional remains one of several watches qualified by NASA for spaceflight and is still the only one so qualified for EVA. The Speedmaster line also includes other models, including analog-digital and automatic mechanical watches. You may buy that.
3. Rolex Datejust
Rolex introduced the original Datejust (reference 4467) in 1945 to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary. It was available only in 18 karats yellow gold and had a small bubble back winder with a deeply domed back. It also featured the company’s waterproof Oyster case (first introduced in 1926), a fluted bezel, and the new Jubilee bracelet (so named for the occasion).
Over the years, the Datejust saw an expansion of its design options as well as improvements to its movement, from a gradual date change shortly before midnight in the earliest versions to an instantaneous change beginning in 1955. Also in 1955, two years after its debut, Rolex added the now-famous Cyclops lens as a major update
4. Hublot Big Bang
The art of fusion: the Fusion concept – the idea that drives Swiss watch manufacturer Hublot – culminates in the Big Bang collection. These watches surprise with unusual material combinations – carbon, ceramic and magnesium, as well as titanium, steel, and gold, are utilized in the Big Bang timepieces. You may buy that.
5. Breitling Navitimer
The Breitling Navitimer made its debut in 1952. Targeted at pilots, its name combines the words “navigation” and “timer.” Its most distinguishing feature is, of course, its flight-specific slide rule bezel. The slide rule allows pilots to calculate things like average speed, fuel consumption, and climbing speeds. You may buy that.
6. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
Audemars Piguet Holding SA (French pronunciation): It is a Swiss manufacturer of luxury mechanical watches and clocks, headquartered in Le Brassus, Switzerland. The company was founded by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet in the Vallée de Joux in 1875, acquiring the name Audemars Piguet & Cie in 1881. The company has been family-owned since its founding.
Audemars Piguet is a highly regarded watch manufacturer. The company is best known for introducing the Royal Oak wristwatch in 1972, which helped the brand rise to prominence within the watchmaking industry. One of Audemars Piguet’s early achievements was creating the world’s first minute-repeating movement for wristwatches in 1892. In addition, the company developed the first skeleton watch in 1934 and has manufactured some of the thinnest watches in the world, such as the 1986 ultra-thin automatic tourbillon wristwatch (Calibre 2870)
7. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss is a wristwatch model introduced by Rolex in 1956 with model number 6541. The Milgauss was designed to meet the demands of the scientific community working around electromagnetic fields. The first of its kind, it is capable of withstanding magnetic fields of up to 1,000 gauss and became known for being worn by scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva. Its resistance to magnetic interference stems from a shield inside the case made of ferromagnetic alloys, which protects the movement. This shield consists of two components, one screwed to the movement and the other to the case. In addition, its Caliber 3131 movement includes paramagnetic materials. You may buy that.
