This week we took a walk on the wild side, picking out five watches that we think are as overlooked as they are immensely cool. Pieces like TAG Heuer's Carrera Tourbillon, Rolex's platinum bezel Yacht-Master and a couple of Blancpains that truly fit the bill of talking the talk and walking the walk.
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronograph
A tried and true legend, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronograph is your one-stop-shop for a watch that does it all.
TAG Heuer Carrera Tourbillon Chronograph
The TAG Heuer Carrera Tourbillon Chronograph is somewhat a right of passage. The perfect combination of a tourbillon and a chronograph encased in one of the most modern iterations of the Carrera aesthetic makes it a definitive winner, with a price-tag to match.
Breguet Classique 5177BR
Quintessentially Breguet, the Classique 5177BR is a stunning mirage of textures, finishings and heritage that begs the question of whether this is one of the most beautiful dress watches, ever.
Rolex Yacht-Master Platinum
With its distinct polar colourway offset by red, a grainy off-white dial and a platinum bezel, the Rolex Yacht-Master Platinum is an epic watch that seems to have fallen off the radar.
Blancpain Villerat Grande Date Jour Rétrograde
Subtle, understated and inconspicuous, the Blancpain Villerat Grande Date Jour Rétrograde is a delightfully functional bit of kit that carries its own amongst a pretty stacked niche of wearable dress watches. Love that retrograde day indicator.
