Best Watches On Amazon This Week #13

In the next edition of our regular series Best Watches On Amazon This Week, we went to town on avant-garde watches that carry a certain degree of horological heft. We've got pieces Girard-Perregaux, Breguet and Cartier to appease and delight.

Breguet Tradition 7027BB

Breguet is about dial inversion, with the Tradition 7027BB being a wonderful example of the maison's prowess in this domain of watchmaking. Everything on show with barely any room to hide makes the Breguet Tradition 7027BB a stand out piece that is the perfect entry point to Breguet's openworked coffers.

Breguet Type XXI

High up on my list of wants is the Breguet Type XXI. Brilliantly put together and showcasing a different side of the maison, the Breguet Type XXI is perhaps the most un-Breguet Breguet, ever.

Chopard Alpine Eagle

A contrast of textures and finishings, the Chopard Alpine Eagle lends its hand as being one of the most controversial yet considerable pieces of high-end sports watchmaking outside of the Nautilus, Royal Oak and Overseas.

Cartier Drive Automatic

Elegant, understated and gorgeously appointed, Cartier's Drive Automatic blends the worlds of classicism and modernity splendidly.

Girard-Perregaux Traveller Moonphase

Perhaps the most against-the-grain piece in this week's edition, the Girard-Perregaux Traveller Moonphase features a beautifully balanced and legible asymmetrical dial that is tied in by that whopping date window just below 12 o'clock.
