Our Top 5 Favourite Luxury Watches

There are so many benefits of wearing luxury watches. Not only does it help you stay on time, but it's also major eye candy, a collector’s item – and not to mention, a massive investment when the times comes to sell your watch! See our list of top 5 luxury watches in the world.

The Rolex Submariner

Rolex Watch The Rolex Submariner series features a stainless steel 40mm case with a unidirectional bezel. It also has a stylish black dial and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. What’s more, is that it is water-resistant from 100-300 metres. The Submariner is one of the most iconic watches in the world. It has been the muse of so many other luxury watches and is one of the most forged watches – but of course, we only do authentic in this corner! This analogue piece was originally designed as a diver’s watch and was priced as an entry-level item in the world of Rolex. However, in today’s time, this coveted item can sometimes take months or years for delivery as it is the best-selling luxury Swiss sports watch of all time. Any true watch fan or collector will tell you that it’s well worth the wait!

Omega Seamaster

Omega Chronograph The Omega Seamaster consists of a stainless-steel case and bracelet screw-in crown and case-back along with an engraved Omega hippocampus logo. It also features luminescent hands, unidirectional bezel, blue, black (or silver) dial with orange accents, sapphire crystal (anti-reflective) and helium release valve. This piece is also water-resistant up to 1200-metres. The Omega Seamaster debuted in 1948 in celebration of Omega’s 100th anniversary. Ever since, the Seamaster has held a legendary following – and for good reason. This piece is known to many as the ‘James Bond’ watch and is one of Omega’s best sellers. This wristwatch is still relevant in the contemporary watch world. And last year the Seamaster received over 135,000 google search requests per month.

TAG Heuer Carrera

TAG luxury watches The TAG Heuer Carrera line represents strong Swiss-made chronograph designs with three elegant watch hands (in the Calibre 5 model collection) and is a must-have for any luxury watch collector. The TAG Heuer Carrera is an ultimate classic watch and was inspired by Motor Racing. It was created in 1963 by Jack Heuer as a tribute to the famous Carrera Panamericana auto race. This race is one of the most dangerous in the world, and the watch matches this wild and exciting aesthetic. The Carrera is unlike any other watch of its time as it broke traditional watchmaking ‘rules’ – it is the first chronograph designed for professional drivers. It’s also perfect for everyday life because of it’s simple yet sophisticated design - more pertinently, it’s easily readable. Fashion and function – what more do you need in a watch?
