Chrono Hunter Selects The Most Popular Blue-Dial Watches For Enthusiasts

 

As the world becomes increasingly more colourful and vibrant, it only makes sense that our watches change too! A blue-dial model isn't simply a throwaway accent no more with little value. Blue can be used in a variety of situations from dress watches to sports watches and everything in between. Navy blue makes for a fantastic suit colour while bright blue can enhance the most morbid of timekeeping souls in summer time

The key to looking as suave as Elvis in his blue suede shoes is to be confident. It is a universal colour that has confidently stood the test of time. With brands like Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe turning to this hue, we know that you are definitely in solid hands. 

You’ve probably had a scour online and found the list of blue dial watches is making you go an entirely different shade of green. Now, we wouldn’t hold it against you if you gave up your search when looking to buy a model already. But that would be a waste of all our time wouldn’t it? 

Look no further as Chrono Hunter brings to you, our devoted time peeps, the definitive guide of the best blue watches around. These hot drops are certain to keep you ticking along 24/7.

 

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar

 

If Audemars Piguet is pulling out any kind of colour, you know the market will instantly respond and follow suit when blue pops up. This is the impact that Audemars Piguet has!

Typically, Royal Oak models are created out of steel as an ode to it being the first ever luxury sports piece. Audemars Piguet like to flash their horological flair about quite regularly so the Audemars Piguet Royal Perpetual Calendar instead chooses to go with the avant-garde ceramic material and stylish integrated strap. 

That’s not all. Made entirely out of blue ceramic, the timepiece is certainly not one to hide under shirt sleeves! This one is a real head turner when paired with a navy slim fit oxford shirt and your best black loafers.

The dial similarly follows suit. Featuring a Grande Tapisserie motif, the model is made up of small squares which exemplify the following sub dials, white gold applied hour markers and Royal Oak hands. 

The sub dials relate to the classic perpetual calendar functions, including a week indicator, day, date, astronomical moon not to mention a month and leap year counter. There’s no fear of being lost without the date or time with this beauty strapped to your wrist. Powered by the calibre 5134, the model has a solid power reserve of 40 hours and a fairly steady beat of 19,800VpH. 

 

Final Thoughts on The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar 

 

As Neil Diamond proclaimed, The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar is forever in blue jeans.

It takes the colour to entirely different levels by incorporating it not only on the face but throughout the entirety of the piece. The use of ceramic allows the timepiece to be given a finish which is unattainable with any other material. Worried you might lose the dial amidst the crashing ocean waves? The slightly grainy, brushed finish throughout the entirety of the model aside from the polished bezel allows the face to clearly stand out instantaneously. 

These timepieces should be worn by those who want to buy a watch and go the whole hog when it comes to evoking the pieces allure. Don’t be bashful. It’s a highly bodacious piece which should be worn with pride. Cobalt is the order of the day and style is the delivery. We suggest pairing this beauty with a navy suit for that seamless build or taking things to the Pre-Raphaelite era with loose clothes during those hot summer months

As a part of Audemars Piguet’s highly prestigious Royal Oak collection, these blue dial models have every chance of being a solid investment piece, especially since it’s designed in such an unusual way with blue ceramic.

Longines Spirit Zulu Time Blue Dial

 

Originally launched in 2022, The Longines Spirit Zulu Time was, as a collection, fit to continue the phenomenal legacy of the Spirit line. Measuring 42mm, the collection was bulky but perfected the GMT pilot’s timepiece. 2023 has spun around and Longines have heard the horological cries for a smaller case. Enter, The Longines Spirit Zulu Time Blue Dial. 

 

Construction Of The Longines Spirit Zulu Time Blue Dial

 

Measuring 39mm, the cases are significantly smaller which makes sense in the modern consumer climate of smaller and less obtrusive models. Did someone mention the new Longines Spirit Time 39mm? As on trend as NFL icon Tom Brady sporting an olive-green faced Rolex Day-Date 40 in platinum…with Sanskrit numerals, smaller timepieces are here to stay.

The bi-directional rotating bezel has a ceramic insert, allowing the models to competently read a 24-hour scale, linked to the arrow tipped seconds hand corresponding to the second time zone. 

Featuring applied Arabic numerals that preside over smaller diamond shaped hour markers, the hands and hour markers are dosed with a healthy amount of Super-Luminova. The sunray-brushed face is given a metallic blue colouring which adds a different complexion to the ceramic insert bezel. 

Meanwhile, the GMT hand is a fiery orange, allowing maximum legibility at the quickest glance. Whether or not you like the 5 star film review like rating aesthetic on the blue dial is your call but it’s no doubt a striking timepiece.

With a date aperture at 6 o’clock, the background is the same as the rest of the face shades which could cause a little confusion if it wasn't for the white writing inside. Just to confirm that you have a classic timepiece on your wrist, the  Longines 5 stars and winged hourglass logo reside underneath 12 o’clock and on top of 6 o’clock respectively. Why not buy a watch like this and spoil yourself if you have secured that well deserved office promotion?

On to the calibre L844.4 which is COSC certified. Running at 25,200 VpH and supported by an anti-magnetic silicon balance, the timepiece offers 72 hours of power reserve. That’s about enough time to fly to Amsterdam for a quick weekend away and back. Happy travels!

 

Final Thoughts On The Longines Spirit Zulu Time Blue Dial

 

The Longines Spirit Zulu Time Blue Dial prides itself on its understated colour. Don’t get us wrong, the dial is finished to a phenomenal degree. The sunray-brushed effect ensures that light illuminates the model and enhances every shade of the piece.

Mind you, it doesn't seem to rely on ostentation to prove its sleek nature. Although it’s already got 5 stars adorned on it, we believe this is a timepiece that supasses a vast quantity of the aviation timekeeping universe. 

Plus, you don’t have to be an aviation nerd to wear this beauty. Style wise, pair this with your grey cashmere jumper for those colder days or travel to the office in style with a crisp white suit shirt and black or camel chinos. Just make sure everyone in the office can see your wristwear!

As part of the fairly new Longines Spirit Zulu Time collection, the timepiece follows on from its heritage thanks to Arabic numerals on the face and sleek lugs around the case. That shade is one stunner of a colour, offering the chance for these blue-dial models to be a solid investment piece.  

You can buy a Longines Spirit Zulu Time Blue Dial at retail for £2,900…as of July 2023

 

IWC Pilot’s Watch “Le Petit Prince” Chronograph Edition

 

Say Bonjour to “Le Petit Prince”? But what exactly does it mean? Relating to the best-selling novel “The Little Prince”, the story relates to a pilot stranded in the desert. The author, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is a licensed commercial pilot too, meaning the name of the model has numerous connotations.

IWC have continued to work intimately with the Fondation Antoine de Saint-Exupéry which is the authors charity. In 2006, IWC extended the relationship to create the Le Petit Prince collection in 2006. However, we aren't here for a history qualification so let’s dive straight away into the timepiece!

 

Construction Of IWC Pilot’s Watch “Le Petit Prince” Chronograph Edition

 

The model is 43mm in diameter and crafted out of stainless steel, allowing it to come out of the gate with timekeeping presence and bulk.

The case delivers a sublime brushed finish that offers a vintage allure to the piece. That’s not a bad choice considering the Pilot collection dates back to the 1930s. The polished bezel immediately draws the eyes towards the dial's face like Matt Hancock is drawn to scandal. 

A quick rotation of the model would reveal a prince with a sword and coat, relating to the title of the timepieces. It’s a nice reference and could be considered to help the value of the piece if you want to buy an IWC of this nature, due to its exclusive link to the book. 

The crown is one honking beast which is given a grooved exterior in order to promote the grip when turning it. The pushers at either side of it are rather charming given their refined design and they again relate to the aviation aspect of the timepieces. 

The face is, of course, a masterpiece. Now, blue watches dominate this article but this timepiece does it a little differently. The colour is a stunning darkened shade, which allows the brighter silver tone sword hands, large Arabic numerals and chunky hour indices to clearly stand out. Need we say they are plastered with plenty of Super-Luminova?

The three sub dials which relate to the 30 minute, 60 second and 12 hour counters dominate the 12 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock areas. Meanwhile, the 60 second chronograph counter is given a noticeable red hand which accentuates its first-rate visibility. The day-date function located at 3 o'clock is a handy feature to follow the date and timings. 

Powered by the calibre 79320, the movement runs at a hardy 28,800VpH and houses a modest power supply of 44 hours. This gives you enough time to hop on the Eurostar and back in a day to marvel at the City of Light.

 

Final Thoughts On The IWC Pilot’s Watch “Le Petit Prince” Chronograph Edition

 

The beautiful blue piece offers a phenomenal degree of depth to the indices and hands. It sets the perfect backdrop for those times you need to buy a watch providing a high depth of precision yet looks best under a suit sleeve or bomber jacket. 

The brown leather strap is supple and offers a relaxed vibe to the piece. It takes away from the formality of the aviation construction, allowing it to be worn in a variety of situations like your brand new reversible belt. 

The timepiece's link to an incredibly popular book as well as featuring it on the caseback makes this a sought after timepiece. Combined with the heritage of the collection and the excellent design, we wouldn't be surprised if you considered this to be a worthy investment piece. 

You can buy an IWC Pilot’s Watch “Le Petit Prince” Chronograph Edition at retail for £5,250. 

 

Patek Philippe Nautilus 5811

 

Patek Philippe enjoys keeping things classic with their displays and designs. This is especially the case for the Gerald Genta inspired Nautilus collection. Who would have thought napkins could give birth to some of the legendary timepiece designs in the world. 

 

Construction Of The Patek Phillipe Nautilus 5811

 

Served up with a great side dish of horology, The Nautilus collection was introduced in 1976 and created from the genius mind of Gerald Genta. Following on from the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Patek Philippe needed luxury sports models that created the same excitement as The Royal Oak.

Inspired by the style of ships porthole, the signature octagonal casing and embossed dial is now a firm staple of the collection. Crafted at a slightly bigger casing than the original at 41mm, the timepieces don't veer too far in terms of its overall visuals.

Made from white gold, the case evolves the sports timepieces to a level of luxury which is usually unattainable for even the nicest dress models such as The Rolex 1908 or The H. Moser & Cie Streamliner Centre Seconds Smoked Salmon Dial. The strap is similarly made out of white gold and houses the brand spanking new fold over clasp, allowing for easy adjustability. You do pay for what you get these days.

The octagonal bezel boasts the blue dial which is given a sunburst finish. Following a shutter style embossment on the dial, the deep oceanic colour graduates to a darker black which circles the periphery of the face. This allows the white gold hands and indices to stand out even more than a Brit abroad.

The subtle date aperture at 3 o’clock boasts an extra perk of the sublime models. I mean, who doesn't want to see the time and date all at the same time?

Powered by the Calibre 26-330 S C, the models have a Gyromax balance and Spiromax hairspring. Capable of providing a stop seconds functionality, the timepieces are infinitely more precise than its predecessor, the Calibre 324. Running at 4Hz with a maximum power reserve of 45 hours, these watches are nothing to be sniffed at. 

 

Final Thoughts Of The Patek Philippe Nautilus 5811

 

We can safely assume that any Patek Philippe is going to be utterly majestic in its own right. Value wise this comes down to a few factors concerning the resale of a Patek Philippe such as scarcity of the model, timepiece’s condition, documentation and market conditions. These factors will have an impact on the value of a watch.

Given a Patek Philippe Seal Hallmark, these particular watches offer a high level of style with complexity akin to the gordian knot. The white gold strap and case is not as flashy as yellow gold, meaning you can pull this beauty off with just about anything. From a tux at the wedding reception to a tee and jeans at the local hotspot with your friends, you can look your best wherever you roam!

The precious metal construction and stylish Nautilus design entitles these timepieces to be considered as a solid investment piece. You can’t get much more iconic than this collection! You can buy a Patek Philippe 5811 at retail for £56,190…at the time of writing.

 

Rolex Daytona Platinum 126506

 

Heard of the racetrack “Daytona”? If you have, you have certainly heard of the Rolex Daytona collection. As the official timekeeper of the Daytona International Speedway since 1962, Rolex pulls no punches with this symbolic collection.

As these are watches made for racing, they take a different approach to its usually steely construction.

Crafted out of 950 platinum, the models are promoted into the realms of sports-chic due to its incorporation of the precious metal. The platinum build contrasts superbly with the chocolate brown Cerachrom bezel. An unusual combo that may attract others who like the traditional panda-dial chronographs like the 116500LN, we believe it works an absolute treat in promoting the legibility of the timepiece, especially the tachymetric scale on the bezel. 

The dial is given a beautiful ice-blue shade which allows light to project the 18K applied hour markers and hands out clearly. It matches the shine of the platinum case and offers a different dynamic to the classic white or black dial. Given Rolex’s Chromalight display, the dial lights up in a beautiful neon lighting, ensuring visibility when driving back home after a long meeting or watching the stars in your Spanish Villa. 

The three sporty chronograph subdials are given a chestnut coloured ring on their periphery, matching with the bezel of the watches. The sub-dials allow drivers to measure track times and elapsed time without fail. For the common man, they offer a stunning visual feature and make you feel like Max Verstappen when driving home from work. 

Powered by the new 4131 calibre, the watches offer excellent precision between -2/+2 seconds per day. Supported by a Parachrom hairspring and Paraflex shock absorbers, the watches give a high degree of accuracy and protection from magnetism and knocks. 

Fitted with the Oyster strap, the watches are secured with a great deal of robustness and style from the strap. Dating back to the 1930s, the strap has been a classic accompaniment to the Rolex Daytona, allowing the strap to be a French kiss to the timepiece. Parfait!

 

Final Thoughts Of The Rolex Daytona Platinum 126506

 

As a certified Superlative Chronometer, the watches are held in the highest horological esteem especially with the Daytona’s strong links to Paul Newman. The design aspect similarly follows the high level of attention. Blending platinum with the beautiful chestnut Cerachrom bezel, the watch's icy blue face offers a lighter tone to this article's increasingly mysterious list.

We suggest pairing this with a stylish polo shirt for those days where you want to look classy. Don’t fear dressing it down though with a pair of jeans and a simple jacket for that relaxed vibe. Its precious metal build, highly advanced movement and its celebratory vibe as the 60th anniversary of the Daytona means these watches could be considered as a possible investment.

Breitling Superocean Heritage B20 42mm

 

The Superocean collection stems all the way back to the 1950s and has continued to embody Breitling’s endless strive for luxury sport watches.

Crafted out of stainless steel, the watches are durable and secure, especially when kitted up with the screw down crown. The ceramic inner ringed bezel is unidirectional and serrated with 120 teeth on its exterior. If you like your watches jagged, this might be for you…but it ain’t no Bart Simpson!

Whether going all Jacques Cousteau in the deep blue seas of the Maldives or diving into bed after a hard day in the office, the bezel can easily be screwed without any faff. Going deep below ground level? Then the lume spot situated at 12 o’clock should assist your calculations!

The blue dial is given a steely complexion this time round which offers a shiny allure in comparison with the matt ceramic bezel. Given a sun-burst finish, the watches explode from the centre outwards, casting rays like a warm summer's day. 

The original Superocean rears its vintage head in the form of the triangular hour hand and the sword shaped minute hand. However, like Madness, this edition goes one step beyond in terms of legibility. By eradicating the sub dials, the dial is much more open. This allows the blue dial to beam its feel-good vibes and reduce the busyness of the watches which is essential for the underwater lovers.

It also helps that the hour and minute hands as well as eight of the hour markers have been daubed with Super-Luminova. Locked in by the mesh styled rubber strap with a steel buckle, the timepiece is both ergonomic on the wrist and relaxed in its overall appearance. Powered by the COSC certified Caliber B20, the movement runs at a reliable 28,800VpH and offers a solid power reserve of 70 hours, which is more than enough time to make a splash among inner horlogical circles.

 

Final Thoughts Of The Breitling Superocean Heritage B20 42mm

 

Decked out with a blue dial, bezel and strap, the watches really get into their watery heritage. Offering 200 metres of water resistance, the Breitling Superocean watches are more than capable of joining your kids in the swimming pool or living your dream bachelor life by the sea. 

The watches are extremely legible, promoting its purpose as a piece made for the unbridled voyages at sea. It can however be worn for less perilous expeditions. It's classic construction and low-key colour scheme means you can look neat and tidy while shaking hands with your boss or playing pool in your man-cave. 

The watches strong heritage and vintage style hands and casing means the timepiece has the potential to be a solid investment piece. 

You can buy a Breitling Superocean Heritage B20 42mm at retail for £4,30 as of July 2023. 

 

H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Calendar 

 

The horological underdog of the horological world, H. Moser & Cie are making timekeeping waves in the industry. 

The Pioneer Perpetual Calendar with its highly durable DLC titanium case and perpetual calendar became a staple for those wanting the luxury of a perpetual calendar with the durability of a titanium case. Not enough? The Venturer Small Seconds Ref. 2327-1203 is capped at 10 models and offers users the best minimalist dial face we’ve ever seen. The pink fumé dial is simply gorgeous, especially since it’s untainted, with only 4 hour markers, two hands a small seconds sub dial at 6 o’clock. 

These watches are nice, but if you want something that really makes its mark, something that could be considered to be otherworldly…let us introduce you to The H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Calendar.

So what makes this piece as mysterious as Area 51?

The timepiece is composed of both tantalum & steel. We hear you, Timelords. Tantalum is extremely rare in the horological universe and could be considered to be one of the best! Why is tantalum rare? As a form of metal that is both highly anti-corrosive and hypoallergenic, the material naturally comes in a blueish grey hue. 

The phenomenal blue dial case is complimented by the equally unique “fumé” dial that is coloured like the rippling waves of the Indian Ocean. Finished with a “Grand Feu” enamelling styling that starts light in the centre and gets progressively darker towards the edge, the sheer array of shades is incomparable to any other model. 

Constructed with a hammered style design, the colour is made up of four various pigments which result in one fabulous concoction. The dial itself is intentionally made as simplistic as possible. There’s no text, self-aggrandizing logos or added complications. The watch is stripped back to the bare essentials like a secret Ed Sheeran acoustic set, leaving just a small central hand in the centre to inform you of the date using the 12 indices. There is a small seconds function and a power reserve indicator which are based at 6 and 9 o’clock. 

Powered by the HMC 800 calibre, the award winning Perpetual Calendar movement has a phenomenal 168 hour power reserve, 18,000VpH frequency and a leap year indicator on the side of the movement which only needs altering once every four years. One of the best movements out there? Just maybe…

 

Final Thoughts Of The H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Calendar 

 

How can you even summarise this piece? The Grand Feu dial is absolutely immaculate and offers a truly sublime fumé aesthetic. This is one smooth horological hot rod if ever we saw one. H. Moser & Cie have been able to create a rugged yet refined piece which still pulls off the irresistible twang of luxury, timelessness and elegance for those who want to buy a watch

The case is durable and certainly a talking point due to its bluish hue. The entire piece is seamless and the blue factor is amped up to 11. Thanks Spinal Tap! The watch has to be seen. If you are in the office, roll your sleeves up. If you are taking your kids to school, hang your wrist out the window! The combination of tantalum with the highly unorthodox dial design means this watch is certainly one to consider as an investment piece.

You can buy a H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Calendar at retail for around £65,800 as of July 2023.

 

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 38mm Summer Blue 

 

The Omega Seamaster collection celebrates 75 years of this prestigious collection as seen through its launch this summer on the shores of Mykonos, Greece.

Built at 38mm, The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra revitalises itself with a healthy dose of the best summer skies - summer blue.

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch

 

Released across 11 different watches with each shade of blue getting deeper according to the depth rating, this terrific timepiece is crafted out of the very formidable 316L steel.

But this watch prides itself on its durability. While maybe not the same strength as Rolex’s 904L steel, 316L is still used in construction and marine projects. Do not sleep on the material!

The dial is dolled up with a teak design which essentially follows gentle lines that lap the dial horizontally. Eyes instantly jump to it because its hypnotic effects are soon broken by the gentle silvers and apt ocean sheen of the shark teeth indices and hands which are given a good dose of Super-Luminova. 

This watch keeps things simple with a date aperture based at 6 o’clock and the classic timekeeping functionality of hours and minutes. The dial is sun-brushed and is subsequently given a PVD coating to preserve the depth and visibility of the lines. 

Powered by the Omega 8900 calibre, the watch is Master Chronometer certified and METAS approved. Hurrah. To clarify, not only does this watch look like it fell out of a cloud, it also runs like a dream! Combined with a Co-Axial escapement and silicon balance spring, the watch protects the movement like a trojan. 

We don’t have the privilege of seeing the movement in all its glory. Not to worry as you instead can cast your eyes on the mythical emblem of Poseidon bearing his trident alongside two seahorses. 

 

Final Thoughts Of The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 38mm Summer Blue 

 

Greek mythology runs through the veins of Omega. We’re just lucky that the god of the sea has blessed the brand, marking 75 years of the Seamaster collection!

The powder blue dial is gentle and does not appear over the top on first inspection. There’s no fancy complications or particularly avant-garde grade features that makes this watch look like something out of the space age. Very much like a classic muscle car, we appreciate the simplicity of a beautiful summer blue colour, the classic case construction of the Aqua Terra and the complexity of a highly qualified movement. 

Pair this with a navy linen top and black chinos for those long lazy day’s in the sun. Although not a limited edition watch, we expect this timepiece to be a potentially good investment because of its one-off colour scheme and highly lauded movement. 

You can buy an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 38mm Summer Blue at retail for £6,10 as of July 2023. 

 

Chopard Alpine Eagle - Blue Dial

 

The Alpine Eagle collection has become as much of a heartthrob as Micheal Buble at Christmas time. 

 

Construction Of The Chopard Alpine Eagle - Blue Dial 

 

The Alpine Eagle line stretches back to the 1980s and it represents a modernised version of the St Moritz.

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch

 

The Chopard Alpine Eagle collection was created with the mighty bird in mind. As such, the pieces tend to be immensely durable but have a certain devilishness about them that even Mr Bond in his tux couldn't compete with. 

The Chopard Alpine Eagle - Blue Dial is crafted out of the highly regarded Lucent Steel. Developed by Chopard, the material is 50% harder than steel and has the capabilities of being extremely reflective. This gives the piece a certain iridescence when hit with light, promoting its beautiful glow. It also prides itself on being antiallergenic so unlike hay fever sufferers, the material is extraordinarily fresh and clean, relating it to the steel standard in medical industries. 

The sunburst motif on the dial's face swirls around the dial, representing the iris of an eagle. The subsequent effect is one of luxury and refinement. Make sure you don’t stare for too long as you may just be lost in a trance. For those eagle eyed enthusiasts among you, the colouring is rich and opulent as the lines progress outwards towards the periphery of the dial. Ol’ Blue Eyed Frank Sinatra has nothing on this timekeeping beauty!

The seconds hand features a counterweight which is designed to look identical to an eagle's feather. Plated with rhodium, the hand is reserved and does not detract from the dial's background. As for the strap, it tapers to the wrist seamlessly and is similarly crafted out of lucent steel promoting the durability and stylishness of the piece. 

The Chopard 01.01-C movement is COSC certified and runs at an extraordinary 28,800VpH. With a power reserve of 60 hours, the watch boasts a date aperture between 5 and 5 o’clock and a stop seconds function. But time cannot stand still as we have more blue dial watches to bring to your hungry horophiles. 

 

Final Thoughts Of The Chopard Alpine Eagle - Blue Dial 

 

The Chopard Alpine Eagle is highly contemporary, offering the normal man a chance at horological greatness. Its ability to render an eagle’s iris onto the dial's face is incredible, especially considering it swirls so freely from the centre of the dial outwards. 

The use of lucent steel allows Chopard to offer the watch on the proviso that no one else is making anything like them. Its ability to reflect light and boast an otherworldly incandescence is just one of the reasons we are so hot under the collar!

As T Rex said, get it on with a leather jacket for the colder days or a suit for those prim and proper business occasions. The use of their in-house material and fascinating dial design means you could swoop in with a good investment opportunity. 

You can buy a Chopard Alpine Eagle - Blue Dial at retail for £12,900. 

 

TAG Heuer Monaco 

 

Paris is known for the Eiffel Tower, Spain is known for its bull-fighting and TAG Heuer is…well known for The Monaco and its close association with Steve McQueen. Stemming from the 1970s, the TAG Heuer Monaco has a square case which screams TAG Heuer from every pusher and crown.

 

Construction Of The TAG Heuer Monaco

 

Since its initial inception in 1969, The TAG Heuer Monaco was created to push the boundaries of premium sports watches. 

Its ground-breaking square case shape deviated away from the circular casings of its era, giving TAG Heuer an untapped slice of the market. It’s been as unprecedented as Tyson Fury’s WBC reign.

 

Monaco 

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch

 

Measuring 39mm, the watch is crafted out of steel. Undergoing brushing on the sides of the case and the bezel, the lugs and edges of the case have been polished to a nice sheen. This give and take of various finishes allows for different dimensions and a combination of the best sporty and luxury feels throughout the timepiece. Complemented with the chamfered sapphire crystal, the watch is seamless throughout. 

The dial is heavily inspired by the 1970s edition. Featuring sun-ray brushing, the light reflects from every angle of the piece. The sub dials are still squares, but the corners have been softened, resulting in a subtle curve. They also feature jolts of red in terms of the hands and seconds hand. The colouring is very reminiscent of the times of yesteryear but it still looks as contemporary today as it was back then. Oh TAG Heuer…you are spoiling us!

The strap is a big deal. Seriously, it is. The TAG Heuer Monaco was noted for being on a leather strap so the introduction of a strap in its H-link design with polished centre and brushed outer links is more revolutionary than Lenin. It promotes the sportiness of the piece which is something that cannot be dumbed down, considering it was worn by Steve Mcqueen in “Le-Mans”.

Powered by the Calibre 02, the movement is visible through the exhibition caseback. Powering the chronograph functions like the ¼ seconds, 30 minutes counter, 12 hour counter, date function and the standard timekeeping, it has a lot on its plate. Running at 28,800VpH and with a power reserve of 80 hours, we are sure the movement will manage!

 

Final Thoughts Of The TAG Heuer Monaco

 

Monaco is a triumph from TAG Heuer. It has stood the test of time and then some without really undergoing any overtly radical changes. Its adherence to the square dial design is admirable but an easy choice for TAG Heuer considering the impact it’s had on the horological world. 

The blue dial is reminiscent of a flash sports car. Its gun coloured shade is quite dark but ultimately fantastic against the white hands, indices and sub dials. We suggest adorning it with a sports coat for watching motorsports on the stands or get in the office with a black suit to allow the shade to emanate without fail.

Its classic squared design and strong movement allows this timepiece to be considered as a strong investment choice for any collection. You can buy a TAG Heuer Monaco at retail for £6,700…at the time of writing.

The watch is pretty big at 43mm but for the amount of kit you get, it’s not that bad of a load to bear. Sapphire has been integral to Hublot’s exploration of Haute Horologie.

Last year, Hublot rocked us with a purple sapphire Big Bang and they’ve sought to do it again… previously this year in SAXEM and now in blue! The case is bulked out, featuring fairly chunky ears at 3 and 9 o’clock. 

So, why sapphire? It does seem like a reasonable question given the hesitation by other brands to use it. The answer is fairly simple. Hublot loves a challenge to progress the world of horology. Let’s be honest, it does make for a great marketing speel. Hublot were the first to use rubber and have since created their own alloys like Magic Gold to attain the “Art of Fusion” they’re always banging on about. 

Sapphire is one of the only materials that are fully transparent. Sure, sapphire crystals do this very well, especially with an exhibition caseback, but Hublot takes it one step further. By making it entirely transparent, we can see the fascinating HUB6035 automatic tourbillon movement operate in all its finery. Big Bang Nespresso this ain’t. Damn good timepiece which is just as revolutionary? Certainly.

The bracelet is a work of horological genius. Sapphire is notoriously difficult to work with due to its proneness to cracking. To perfectly shape and create a bracelet with slightly chamfered edges and for it to be perfectly sized is fantastic work! Undergoing diamond polishing and a slight alteration to the chemical properties of sapphire to attain the colourful sheen, the watch is magnificent. 

The lightness of sapphire and its inherent durability means it’s a god-send for the clumsier people among us. You wanted blue right, well how about a watch that bases itself entirely on the colour!

 

Final Thoughts Of The Hublot Big Bang Integrated Tourbillon Full Blue Sapphire 

 

We can understand your anxieties about a watch like this. It is bizarre and yes, it is like nothing you’ve ever seen before from other brands. 

The ethos of Hublot is one of progression and creativity. They could go down the lines of reinterpreting models from the past like their Hublot Classic pieces which are as timeless as the classic cars Breitling took influence from. For Hublot to take such a bold step into innovation and continue to create and use new and exciting materials, they have tapped into a market which is generally unused. 

The Blue Sapphire Integrated Tourbillon blends the highly functioning watchmaking of a tourbillon movement with a 72 hour power reserve and expands it through avant garde design. As there’s nothing else like this on the market, we can expect this watch to do pretty well as an investment piece, especially since it's capped at 10 pieces.

You may not feel comfortable wearing this into the office for fears of workplace disruption! We recommend wearing it to less formal events such as visiting your friends art exhibition or a few cocktails on a rooftop bar in Kensington. Hublot are all about fun and boldness so get those sleeves up, Timelords.

You can buy a Hublot Big Bang Integrated Tourbillon at retail for £454,000. 

 

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Ultra-Thin 16202ST

 

Sometimes classicism isn’t a criticism. This is especially the case when bringing in the beautiful Royal Oak collection from Audemars Piguet. Please enter, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Ultra-Thin 16202T

It’s been through a lot of changes, all of them subtle and slightly different in their own way. From the Mega Tapessire dial to the new Lady Tapisserie dial, the Royal Oak Jumbo Ultra-Thin prides itself on the classic Petite Tapisserie dial. 

Full name “Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 “Petite Tapisserie"", the dial's face is made up on many small squares, resulting in a hypnotic effect when you glance down adoringly at your watch. The blue sun-burst finish isn’t designed to be overly ostentatious or bright. The subtle twinge of colour adds an air of professionalism which is perfect for the office or your daily life. 

The white gold indices are applied and are very legible on the dials face. The hands are similarly white gold white also results in a clear viewing. The date aperture at 3 o’clock is rather quiet given its background. 

The watch is undoubtedly part of the Royal Oak collection. The octagonal bezel and prominent screws combined with the sleek, tapered edges of the 39mm watch and subsequent integrated bracelet allows this to be minimalistic. What else could we possibly ask for from Audemars Piguet. Want to check your hair-do? Simply glance in the incredibly well polished and brushed casing for that mirror like shine. 

The calibre 7121 is solid at 28,800VpH and with a subsequent 55 hour power reserve. Given ball bearings in the rotor, the movement is more durable and capable of dealing with your hectic lifestyles. 

 

Final Thoughts Of The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Ultra-Thin 16202ST

 

Celebrating 50 years since The Royal Oak was released, the 16202ST develops on the original 5402 from 1972. Time waits for no man, but sometimes it can be one hell of an influence!

The design codes remain the same, allowing those ardent vintage watch fans to get their slice of horological history, without having to keep scrolling through the archives. Its old school allure with the vastly improved movement allows this watch to be a solid investment piece. 

It's non obtrusive in your daily life due to its thin construction and stylish figure. We more than recommend you wearing this for the office or out on the town with the love of your life. Everybody loves a stylish man!

You can buy an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Ultra-Thin 16202ST at retail when you plan an appointment. 

 

Grand Seiko SBGP017

 

When The Beatles sang about “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”, we believe she had a Grand Seiko SBGP017 clasped onto her wrist!

Grand Seiko is a refined brand by trade. They love nothing more than kicking back and thinking up some beautiful designs with high quality movements. This is typified by the ode to the 1960s, The Grand Seiko SBGP017

The dial is simply extraordinary. Basing their design on the clouds from the area of Shinshu in Japan (Grand Seiko’s HQ), they have created a wonderful glimpse into the existential universe above us. We can only describe the dials sheen as “Cotton Cloud” as the brushed, wispy cloud aesthetic is promoted beneath the slightly blued dauphine hands, baton indices and single gold star above 6 o’clock. 

Picture a group of weary cowboys round a fire. The plumes of smoke best represent the vibe and texture of the dial's face. It’s truly a work of horological genius!

The case follows the past and executes it perfectly. At 40mm, the case features Zaratsu polishing that links superbly with the intricate brushing present on the case sides. Given 100 metres of water resistance, the crown is subtle yet is stamped with SB. I wonder why…

The bracelet has a classic three-link construction with a combination of brushing and polishing on the main and outer links. The 9F85 quartz calibre offers a sublime accuracy rating of between +5/-5 seconds, not per day or month but per year! The open caseback allows us to see the bevelled and striped golden goddess pumping out her high quality pulses. We love it!

 

Final Thoughts Of The Grand Seiko SBGF017

 

Dial faces tend to be rather austere in the moody colour due to it being fairly serious. Navy suits conjure up images of boring boardroom meetings after all. Grand Seiko focuses on the happier side of the colour. Think of the summer sky or the lapping waves by your villa in Marbella.

Capped at 2000 pieces and featuring a dial that’s finished to perfection, we can expect this timepiece to be one to watch when it comes to your investment portfolio. 

Wanting to look sharp or dressed down with this beauty? Get on a dusty grey shirt for the complimenting look in the office or wear a turquoise green linen shirt when chilling under the sun. 

You can no longer buy a Grand Seiko SBGF017 at retail due to it being discontinued. You can buy it on the secondary market for around £3,000 at the time of writing.

 

Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT Sky Blue 

 

Bell & Ross are famed for their square watches. In particular, The BR 05 line features an integrated bracelet which has become an icon of the collection.

At 41mm, the watch is crafted out of stainless steel and features the iconic circular dial within the squared casing. Oh yes, it also has four very visible screws which bolt the beautiful piece together.

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch

 

What about the dial? Timelords, we are in for a treat. Gone is the machinery colours of grey and black and in comes a lovely day in the words of Bill Withers!

The dial is given a baby blue sunburst finish, allowing the rhodium plated hour markers to very clearly stand out. The indices and hands are white, as well as the minute track that edges its way around the dial’s periphery. Featuring Arabic numerals at 12, 6 and 9 o’clock, the rest are baton markers and a date aperture sits at 3 o’clock. 

As a GMT watch, the extra hand has a white tipped arrow head and the AM and PM chapter ring is distinguished by a grey and white colour scheme. Powered by the BR-Cal.325, the watch runs at a very competent 28,800VpH and offers 42 hours of power reserve. 

The rotor on the movement is skeletonised, allowing the exhibition caseback to boast a host of cool features within the movement. The integrated bracelet comes in either steel or a darker blue rubber strap, offering more dimensions to the timepiece. 

 

Final Thoughts Of The Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT Sky Blue

 

The Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT Sky Blue isn’t revolutionary in terms of watch design. 

It follows the same design codes of previous GMT timepieces with the circular dial and squared case. However, there’s nothing nicer than a brand caving into the light side… sorry Darth Vadar. The dial offers a highly compelling option for Bell & Ross fans. It takes the classic structure of an iconic line and gives it a new lease of life. We’re all for it. 

Complimenting durability with a new vibe, the Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT Sky Blue watch has every chance of being a solid investment piece. We suggest going with the flow of the watch in terms of fashion. Dress loose with a draped shirt for those BBQ’s by the beach or make it a tad more serious with a black suit jacket and trousers to let the good times shine.

Vacheron Constantin Overseas Moonphase Retrograde Date 

 

The Overseas collection has flown high and dove like a loon since its inception in 1996. It’s instantly noticeable by the six sided bezel that etches the outline of a Maltese cross and the integrated bracelet. 

Wouldn't it be boring if they just rehashed every model over and over. Good job Vacheron Constantin is one of the creative god’s of the horological world!

At 41mm, the watch adheres to the classic design codes of a six sided bezel and an integrated bracelet. The good stuff occurs within the technical elements of the watch. Not to worry though for you design fiends, these are some good looking complications!

For the first time ever, a Vacheron Constantin Overseas model is kitted up with a retrograde complication. This isn’t any old complication, Timelords. Vacheron Constantin has been utilising this for almost a century. The hour hand runs in an arc for half of a day before clicking back to the start point and resuming. 

The gall of combining this phenomenal complication with a moonphase complication is a flex of the grandest proportions! Placing all these features within the sporty exterior of an Overseas model shows how Vacheron Constantin are trying to evolve their collection. 

From 9 to 3 o’clock, the arc traces the top half of the dial. The deep blue dial promotes the white day indices while the similarly blue arrow headed pointer hand subtly guides the way. The bottom half of the rich dial is the Moonphase feature. Typically seen on dress watches, the feature adds a creative dimension to the timepiece. Considering most moon phases feature blue design elements, it’s the perfect complication for such a mysterious piece!

The calibre 2460 R31L/2 is Hallmark of Geneva certified and allows the moon phase to be precise for up to 122 years. The integrated bracelet features a blue leather strap and a blue rubber strap and the watch has an updated interchangeability system to ensure a quick strap change. 

 

Final Thoughts Of The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Moonphase Retrograde Date 

 

Just to be clear, you essentially have two watches in one. You could opt for the out and out sports style with the classic casing and rubber strap, or get dressed up with the classy complications and supple leather strap. How spoiled are we!

Representing the first time a Retrograde date is on an Overseas model and presented in a wonderfully colourful hue, we have our horological sights set on this being a possible investment piece.

Feeling groovy? Best get on a powder blue shirt and let the darker dial face be boasted. For those smarter events, adorn the leather strap and dress it up with an equally tasteful navy suit.

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Annual Calendar 5261R-001

 

The Aquanaut collection offered a fresh breath for Patek Philippe. It took away from the seriousness of the Grand Complications and the Calatrava collection and added to the feel good vibes of 1997. With the dawn of a new millennium and all the kids living for the moment, what better time to release a timepiece with a bit of spirit!

2023 has arrived and with it, a new edition to add to the ever growing bow of the Aquanaut Luce Annual Calendar collection.

As far as sports watches go, this edition is fairly small at 39.9mm but that’s not too unorthodox from Patek Philippe. The crown is slightly sunk between the beautifully tapered crown guards on the right hand side of the watch. 

The dial is where the real Patek Philippe shines through. The dial colour is a concoction of both blue and grey, resulting in a fairly moody colour scheme. The globe style embossment of the dial is iconic in its own right, but it serves a very useful purpose. It allows the applied 18K rose gold Arabic hour markers and hands to stand out a mile. The date window at 6 o’clock is edged in rose gold and given a white background to make it visible. 

Two sub dials between 3 and 4 o’clock and 8 and 9 o’clock relate to the day and month apertures. Underneath 12 o’clock, there is a beautiful moon phase display in the shape of a crescent moon and featuring a series of stars and clouds. This adds a little flourish to the piece and a useful reading for those budding astrologers!

The Caliber 26-330 S QA LU allows for only one adjustment to the date complications per year. Running at 28,800VpH and housing a power reserve of 45 hours, the modelis protected by a Gyromax balance wheel and Patek Philippe’s very own Silinvar hairspring. 

 

Final Thoughts Of The Patek Phillipe Aquanaut Luce Annual Calendar 5261R-001

 

Take heed, Timelords. This is a sporty piece made for the hostilities of the outside world, not some weakling on the sidelines!

Offering 30 metres of water resistance, the model can cope with general moisture, but we wouldn’t go plunging into your private swimming pool. Patek Philippe have made this modelwithout the glitz and glamour of diamonds and jewels. The gold casing is more than enough luxury for this sports piece. 

Given a navy composite strap, the modelis seamless in its mystery. The precious metal construction and the timeless heritage of the brand allows this model to be considered as a possible investment piece. 

We recommend wearing this model with a sharp black suit or dressing it down with your favourite tee and jeans. You will look sublime either way!

You can buy a Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Annual Calendar 5261R-001 at retail for £49,530. 

 

Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono

 

The Tudor Pelagos 39mm made quite a stir upon its release this year. It represented a new dawn for diving watches and may just be the one to lead the small dive model movement…

Tudor has come back out again, this time with the Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono. Celebrating the relationship between the brand and Alinghi Red Bull Racing since 2022, the latest model has a few elements that cross both worlds. 

 

Construction Of The Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono

 

The Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono is crafted out of carbon, titanium and stainless steel in a 43mm shell of durability.

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch

 

You maritime fans may just know all about what these materials represent. As the same properties for the craftsmanship of Red Bull’s vessels, Tudor has utilised Carbon for the case, titanium for the bezel and steel for that rock solid caseback. Now that’s how you celebrate!

Offering 200 metres of water resistance, the bezel utilises a reversed scale. This isn’t to play tricks on you, it’s actually for countdowns to be easily calculated. Did we mention the bezel is laced with Super-Luminova Grade X1 for that 60% longer shine than standard Super-Luminova?

The dial may as well have a Red Bull’s logo covering the sapphire crystal. The dial is blue and red elements add a jolt of colour to the watches. The sub dials at 3 and 9 o’clock and a subsequent date at 6 o’clock breaks up the matte dial and adds some more red. 

The block indices and snowflake hands are a bright white to ensure legibility when quickly glancing down before the start of the Regatta. The MT5813 calibre is COSC certified and operates between -2/+4 seconds every day. Beating at 4Hz and with a 70 hour power reserve, you are locked and loaded for your sailing passions!

 

Final Thoughts Of The Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono

 

Some people say that watches and brand collaborations result in cheap imitation. We’re delighted to say that The Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono does away with tacky gimmicks and provides a model that could even be worn by the guys on the Alinghi team!

Featuring the renowned Red Bull emblem colours of red and blue and boasting a durable fabric strap, we believe that The Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono could be a solid investment piece. 

Feeling fashionable? The watch's duo colour exterior means it can be paired with most outfits. We recommend a dark navy shirt with black chinos for the office and your favourite black bomber jacket for the sporty occasions with your boss. 

 

You can buy a Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono at retail for £4,250. 

 

Panerai Submersible Blu Notte 42mm 

 

This edition of the Submersible collection, may just be the tipping point for you horological fans who are looking for your next Panerai timepiece. 

 

Construction of The Panerai Submersible Blue Notte 42mm

 

Panerai watches are famed for their bulky 43mm plus frames. For reference, take a look at the Panerai Radiomir California which is 45mm of solid eSteel.

Panerai takes a step down with their 42mm Submersible Blu Notte. The iconic crown guard remains, its purpose still to prevent accidental knocks against the crown and to guarantee the reliable water resistance of the piece. 

The bracelet is chunky but instantly recognizable as part of the Submersible collection. The polished and brushed effect upon the middle and outer links is a staple of the sporting icon. Don’t like it? The interchangeable strap system built into the timepiece should ensure you can bang a new strap on by just clicking a button with a tool. 

The dial is a sea colour and is finished expertly with a sun-brushed effect. Light reflects and dances with ease due to the richness of the colour. The dot and block indices are filled with Super-Luminova, ensuring the visibility of the model at all times. 

The bezel is crafted out of steel but features a ceramic insert, pertaining to the dive counter. Ceramic is durable and extremely scratch resistant, perfect for a function as key as the diving scale to measure compression stops. 

Powered by the P.900, the model offers a three day power reserve, 28,800VpH and a water resistance of 300 metres. Bolstered by the IncablocTM anti-shock device, get this titan in the water, quick sharp!

 

Final Thoughts On The Panerai Submersible Blue Notte 42mm

 

Micheal Jackson said ‘Love Never Felt So Good’. We think the words should be Panerai never felt so good! The timeless case design with the crown guards and the solid steel bracelet, pertain to the durability and heritage of the collection. 

The dial adds a touch of luxury which is rare for a tool model brand like Panerai. The dial is extremely legible and the fact the model can reach 300 metres water resistance, allows this to be model to model as an investment piece.

We suggest wearing it with a black suit in the office or with a black leather jacket for those days where you feel like “the” man. 

You can buy a Panerai Submersible Blue Notte 42mm at retail for £10,100.
