Take one look at a person and you can tell a lot about them: their suit, dress, and hairstyle. Then, there’s a watch. The kind of watch they carry on their wrist says more about a person than what they are probably saying out loud. A luxury watch is an indication of status whether it’s the brand they are wearing, the features it shows off, and of course, how much they paid for it.
Here are the best luxury watches of 2018 to keep an eye out for:
Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Stainless-Steel Watch
As one of the more popular of the luxury watch brands, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Stainless-Steel Watch was introduced in 1963. Primarily made for race car drivers, the watch is made of oystersteel, which is extremely resistant. This watch was made for the adventurous kind, with its Oyster bracelet that is both robust yet comfortable. Customize it with a white or black face and you are ready to impress just about everyone.
Breguet Classique 7147 Watch
With its Classique 7147 Watch, Breguet has both maintained its traditional watch style and yet given it a style of its own. The water-resistant watch comes with the classic “Grand Feu” enamel dial and fancy numerals that make it a Breguet. However, the dial is actually lighter than other Breguet watches and it’s easy on the eyes. The Classique 7147 can easily be customized with its alligator leather strap with a gold pin buckle. Choose from either white gold or rose gold, or decide to change it with a dial in silvered 18-carot gold. Your choice.
Price: White gold - $21,000, Rose gold - $21,500
Chopard L.U.C XP Skeletec Watch
Chopard’s latest limited edition 18K Rose Gold watch defines both beauty and transparency all on one wrist. The L.U.C XP Skeletec Watch takes its inspiration from Chopard’s sportier watches but as the very first skeleton caliber, the manufacturer took the design to the next level. The ultra-thin case features dark gray tones with gold and brass that can easily be seen through the transparent face. The skeletonization can especially be seen on the back of the watch where users can see both the beauty of the machinery and also see it at work. This special edition is limited to only 288 pieces.
Hublot Big Bang Meca-10
For those in love with a watch that makes a statement, look no further than Hublot’s Big Bang Meca-10 18K King Gold. The watch features an in-house movement that took two years to develop, a 10-day power reserve, and an open worked dial revealing the mechanics of the watch. The King Gold is water resistant up to 100 meters and fits comfortably with the same ribbed rubber straps as other models. It is a creation that both honors tradition and innovation.
Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronometre Watch
If you or your loved one desires a watch that is unlike any other, Parmigiani Fleurier has the solution to your problem. The Toric Chronomètre is handmade one by one due to the uniqueness of the bezel. It has alternating gadroons and knurling, which makes it so different because of the manual fluting of material with a wheel that imprints the notches into the metal. In layman’s terms, it means none of the Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronometre Watches are the same. Enjoy the distinctiveness.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 25th Anniversary Edition
There is almost nothing new about the 25th Anniversary Edition of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watch – and yet it’s causing as much of a commotion as it did when it first came out in 1993. This special edition watch is one of three models being sold to celebrate the anniversary of a trend-setting watch company.
Back in 1993, the first Royal Oak Offshore began the trend for larger-than-life luxury sports watches. Nothing has changed now in 2018. Save for some of the materials on the new watch, the Anniversary Edition has remained true to its roots. Now with a blue dial, you can even consider this watch better than it’s original.
Out of all the luxurious watches mentioned before, there is something special about the Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronometre Watch that beats out the rest. It is the only one that is truly unique, due to its manufacturing. For someone who is looking for a one of a kind piece of equipment on their wrist, the Parmigiani Fleurier is the way to go.
