Although, some of them are limited editions, so you better hurry up and not miss on the opportunity to make them part of your precious collection of luxury watches. To help you out we have created a selection of 5 watches that would perfectly serve your purpose.
- IWC Pilot’s Chronograph Spitfire
Tough but not overstated and certainly tool focused but with a vintage flair, the Spitfire collection, which is available in steel or bronze, manages to offer IWC’s well-established Flieger aesthetic while being distinctive enough. Holding the pilot’s watches signature like other famous IWC watches do, the Spitfire finds a balance between the old and the classic.
Realised in a solid steel case with a black dial and a screw-in crown, the watch is powered by an IWC-made Automatic movement (sharing some base with the ETA 7750), benefiting from IWC’s legendary chronograph know-how. The dial is covered by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. This timepiece is also anti-magnetic.
- Rolex Air King Black Dial
The Rolex Air King story dates back in 1945, a story that makes this timepiece perfect to add to your precious collection of luxury watches. The Air-King watches are aviation-inspired and although the production was discontinued in 2014, the line was revived in 2016.
Inside the Air King is the caliber 3131, a self-winding mechanical movement developed and manufactured by Rolex, guaranteeing both accuracy and reliability. The design is polarizing and anti-magnetic. It shares many properties in common with Rolex Milgauss and Rolex Explorer but it much cheaper.
The dial is black combined with 18ct gold hour markers at 3-6-9 and equipped with Chromalight display with long-lasting luminescence on hour markers and hands.
- Breitling Chronomat B01 42
Over its almost 40-year career, the Breitling Chronomat has seen multiple iterations, but now, with its new collection, Breitling brings a new generation, a modernized classic, a watch that echoes the original concept with 2020s sleeker design cues. And like the original, it is a multi-purpose chronograph.
The 2020 Breitling Chronomat watches are equipped with the well-known in-house chronograph Calibre B01, an integrated Automatic movement verified as a chronometer. The movement is visible through a sapphire caseback. The dial colour depends on the material chosen.
Like the original, the dials/hands/indexes are less flamboyant than the case, with rectangular applied indexes and rounded baton hands – both filled with Super-LumiNova.
- Bremont Project Possible Bracelet
First and foremost, we are about to introduce you to an exclusive limited-edition GMT dive watch by Bremont inspired and dedicated to Nirmal “Nims” Purja, an ambassador of this brand and a very important figure for the mountaineering community.
For the Project Possible LE, Bremont has opted for a case made of aviation-grade Ti 4-6 titanium with a bronze bezel and a blue ceramic insert. It is to be noted that Bremont is using bronze for the very first time. Composed of a matching blue dial, bronze-colored hands, and yellow accents, the Project Possible LE is quite an elegant expression of the S500’s distinctive design.
The watch is equipped with Bremont BE-93-2AV (base ETA 2893-2) Automatic movement and it is chronometer-certified.
