Urban chronographs

The ultimate sports watch dresses up to the nines to accompany fashion-forward men throughout their day. Or turns sophisticated with very useful complications.

 

What does the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona look like after a facelift? A fascinating question! The legendary chronograph known as the “Paul Newman” returns to the limelight, still closely related to the 1965 model but flaunting very recent innovations such as a monobloc Cerachrom bezel. The only problem is choosing between the white or black dial! Pequignet's Elegance Chronograph gives cause for hesitation too: a choice of blue, silver or black sunray dial on a steel bracelet or simili-alligator leather strap for this pure timepiece with a central sweep seconds, a 12hr counter at 6 o'clock and a 30min counter at 9 o'clock. Classic car enthusiasts won't be able to resist Zenith's El Primero 36’000 VpH Classic Cars. The watchmaker that partners 50 auto events has presented a timepiece all classy lines and ageless allure, its steel case displaying an anthracite dial with three interestingly coloured counters (anthracite, blue and light grey). Under its bonnet purrs a powerful engine: the El Primero 400B calibre delivering 36,000 vibrations an hour and accuracy to 1/10th of a second, a worthy addition to the lineage of the watch house that in 1969 launched the world's most accurate production-line chronograph. Elegance is the name of Omega's game, in the shape of the Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Chronometer now endowed with a moon-phase function. While Chopard has unveiled a limited edition (20 watches) of its L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph with a perpetual calendar; the hand-wound chronograph in Fairmined gold has the finest watchmaking finishes, chronometer certification and the Geneva Seal.
