Elevate your summer attire with these three luxury watches!

July 04, 2024

Get ready to elevate your summer style with these top wristwatch recommendations. Whether you're lounging by the pool or exploring new destinations, the perfect timepiece can complement your summer look and add a touch of sophistication to your ensemble. From sporty and casual designs to elegant and refined options, these recommendations are sure to keep you on time and en vogue throughout the sunny season. I mean, we're not really having a sunny season here in the UK just yet, are we? There have been a few hot days so far, but come on! Laughable attempts at summer sunshine aside, here are three favourites that we think are great for taking out and wearing; there's no need to leave these ones behind!

Breitling Superocean - A17316

Starting this list off we have what's arguably the most orange watch we've ever seen. This version of Breitling's iconic Superocean line comes with a 36mm case which is a far cry from some of the dinner plate-sized pieces the brand also sells. The smaller case doesn't hinder this watch's performance, though, as it's a true diving watch with a 200m water-resistant stainless steel case and a unidirectional rotating bezel with a lume pip and plenty of raised text.

The dial matches the branded rubber strap in colour and has lots of details going on. The highlights include the applied luminescent markers and the applied Breitling logo. There's also a touch of red on the luminescent seconds hand (the other hands have lume as well, of course) and a date window at 3 O'clock. For those looking for a luxury watch that won't weigh your wrist down, this should be a contender. It also has the original boxes and papers to go with it, plus our one-year warranty added in for good measure.

Tudor Black Bay Chronograph - 79360N

It's difficult to imagine a time when the Tudor name wasn't a part of the watch world, isn't it? While the brand was officially relaunched in 2009, it had a niche following for many years. However, it wasn't until around 2014-2015 that Tudor truly came into its own. Before the relaunch, they seemed to produce a lot of watches with the same cases and bracelets as Rolex, their sister brand (both are owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation). These days, Tudor watches are distinct and sometimes polarizing, with their own unique designs.

One model people adore especially is the Black Bay, which offers a quality wearing experience that's also uniquely Tudor. The twin-register chronograph version is definitely one of the most popular models, especially after the release of that pink one that divided the fanbase back in March. Regardless of what was thought or said about it, it generated attention.

This one is more traditional, with a white dial and black markers and subdials. Presented in a 41mm stainless steel case with a stainless bracelet, this piece offers a modern and sporty look which can also be dressed up with a suit, you don't even have to be called David Beckham to pull that one off. Inside the case is a self-winding calibre MT5813. Interestingly, this movement started out life as Breitling's B01 calibre, which is why it comes with a column wheel chronograph with a vertical clutch, which means the chronograph will be very smooth to operate and can be left running all the time without generating excess wear. Neat.

Rolex Cosmograph Daytona - 116519LN

We couldn't make a list of watches without a Rolex on it unless we were going to do a list of great watches that aren't Rolexes (idea?). The Rolex Daytona is a horological icon that consistently excites the fanbase. That's partially because it's a watch that comes in many variants to suit all tastes and has done so for decades, but also because it's Rolex's only chronograph watch.

Most brands, such as Rolex's rivals at Omega and Cartier, have chronograph variants of many of their watch ranges, but the Daytona is bespoke in the lineup. Thankfully, a variety of metals, colours, and bracelets means the one Daytona model can look very different from the next despite having the same 40mm case.

This version has a solid 18k white gold case with a jet black ceramic bezel, which pairs well with the black subdials on the dial and, indeed, the black Oysterflex rubber bracelet. The dial remains crisp and clean and lacks the characteristic date window which so many Rolex models sport, but in lacking this it means the dial is perfectly balanced. Also, like the Tudor above, this movement has a chronograph with a column wheel and a vertical clutch, but this is thanks to the in-house calibre 4130, which comes complete with automatic winding and a long 72-hour power reserve. The Daytona remains the chronograph model of choice for so many and is loved so dearly because of its iconic design and appeal. It's why we love it.

The article highlights three top wristwatch recommendations for the summer season, emphasizing their ability to complement different styles and keep the wearer fashionable and on time throughout the sunny season. With that said, we have so many other watches available that would also fit a summertime getup, so why not check our stock and make an appointment to visit us?
