9 A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1

Just one of a host of unique designs from one of the world’s most low-profile yet prestigious watchmakers.





8 Blancpain Fifty Fathoms

A dive watch for the yacht owner. Dripping in affluence and luxury.





7 Tag Heuer Monaco

The first square chronometer. What’s not to like? A genuine icon in the watch hall of fame.











6 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

A classic, groundbreaking design that has remained popular due to its versatility.








5 Breitling Super Heritage Ocean


Clean and understated. The mesh bracelet gives this dive watch a 1960s vibe.




4 IWC Portuguese Power Reserve


Everything that IWC is about – elegance and substance – is summed up in this beautiful yet functional watch.








3 Tudor Heritage Chrono

Racy and vibrant and with a nod to a considerable pedigree, this is the watch that finally announced that Tudor has stepped out of Rolex’s shadow.







2 Rolex Explorer

Arguably one of the coolest and most unpretentious watches ever made. It scaled Everest with Hilary and still reeks of Cold War intrigue.





1 Panerai Radiomir

A watch with a ton of attitude, the Radiomir is less celebrated but much more grown up and understated than its Luminor stablemate.
