Whether you work in the great outdoors or you’re always playing sports, a high-performance sport watch is perfect for your active lifestyle. Here are three popular sports watches that are sure helpful timepieces in almost any sport.
TAG Heuer Monaco
A tribute to the innovative spirit of TAG Heuer luxury watches, the replica Tag Heuer Monaco was the world’s first square-cased, water-resistant watch. As if that wasn’t unique enough, the Monaco was also the original automatic chronograph. If you’re a Steve McQueen fan, you’ll recognize this watch from his wrist in the racing film “Le Mans.” The film told the story of the rivalry between two race car drivers during the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. The watch profited from the film’s success and is considered a coveted collector’s piece today. It’s been updated with a new movement since, but a few things remain the same with this stylish chronograph: it’s unique square case and subdials.
Hublot Big Bang
The Hublot Big Bang Collection is the flagship of Hublot, and defines the radically unorthodox and experimental aesthetics and design of Hublot. The Hublot Big Bang watches employ natural rubber straps attached to cases made of highly unusual and unorthodox materials. Minimum water resistance is 100 meters/330 feet, the Big Bang watches are essentially water resistant dress and sports watches. Hublot Big Bang is suitable for swimming, snorkeling or other activities. When people take an interest in the Hublot brand, you can be 99% certain, that they are referring to the Hublot Big Bang Collection.
Rolex Sea Dweller
Rolex Sea Dweller is probably the very best high end luxury divers watches you can find in the world. Today, there are two versions of the Sea-Dweller. The smaller version is water resistant down to 1,220 meters/4,000 feet, while the larger version is water resistant down to 3,900 meters/12,800 feet. They indeed are serious divers watches/tool watches, and luxury watches, all in one. Naturally you won’t go diving that deep, but these are serious luxury divers watches – they are robust, sturdy tool watches meant for daily use. It is classic and understated, yet with an adventurous history and pedigree. A good choice if you’re on the fence between a dressy Rolex or a sport one.
