Tudor Heritage Chronograph 70330N
For a sporty and dynamic wristwatch that simply oozes character, the Tudor Heritage Chronograph, reference 70330N is the real deal. This model draws stylistic cues from the appropriately funky 1970s Tudor Monte Carlo. The retro combinations of contrasting black and orange accents, along with the white “home plate” style indices make this model a real home run. As a sister company to Rolex, Tudor comes with an expected level of quality and finishing befitting a younger sibling of the Swiss powerhouse. Within this Tudor beats the workhorse Calibre 2892 automatic movement, which features a power reserve of approximately 42 hours. The inclusion of a bi-directional rotating bezel, discrete 6 o’clock date display, and dual subdials ensure a lot of utility is packed into the 42mm case. The pictured model was listed for $3,650 USD, and you can check out available Tudor Heritage chronographs on eBay here.
Omega Speedmaster Reference 318.104.22.168.06.001
Both in and out of the watch collecting world, the Omega Speedmaster is a piece that needs little introduction. From its storied racing heritage to being the first watch worn on the lunar surface, the “Moonwatch” is so popular that it has managed to claim its own day of the week among enthusiasts. So if you are looking to take part in “Speedy Tuesday”, this is a great option. The Stainless Steel case measures a full 40mm. The classic three-register layout includes the addition of a color-matched four-thirty date display. From the piston pushers and tachymeter bezel to the elegant curvature of the signature Speedmaster lugs, this is a timepiece design that will undoubtedly continue to stand the test of time. The pictured “speedy” is currently listed at $3,587 USD, and you can view other Omega Speedmaster Racing models on eBay here.
Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronograph A1332024-C817SS
A more “rough and tumble” chronograph can be found in the Breitling Superocean Heritage. This combination diver and chronograph is rated to 200m of water resistance, making it uniquely suited for virtually any endeavor. While Breitling’s heritage generally revolves around aviation-related watches, the Superocean is based on a dive model originally introduced in 1957. This modern iteration has been supersized in order to accommodate the chronograph functions and maintain sufficient submergence-friendly water resistance. The case measures a significant 46mm in diameter, and a height of 16.4mm, making it better suited to the large-wristed individuals out there. There is no denying that this is a timepiece that is sure to have significant wrist presence. If this burly dive-chrono piques your interest, it is currently listed here for $4,231 USD, and you can see other Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronograph models one eBay here.
Bell & Ross BR-05 BR05A-BLU-ST/SST
Bell & Ross is another brand that has made a name for itself thanks to aviation-related timepieces. Rather than designing watches specifically for pilots, they have opted to pull inspiration from the gauges and instruments found within an aeronautical control panel. The result of these influences makes for highly recognizable and legible timepieces that are unique among the competition. The BR-05, however, foregoes the straight-up geometric design of the typical B&R. The result is a time-only sports watch with an integrated bracelet. The whole form is atypically sleek for the brand but represents terrific value and style for the $4,323 USD price. The stainless case measures 40mm in diameter, but the whole timepiece is kept quite svelte at just 10.4mm thick. The BR-05 is water-resistant up to 100m and is powered by the Bell and Ross Calibre 321 movement, which can be viewed through the sapphire display caseback. If you are looking for something a little outside the norm, check out available Bell & Ross BR 05 watches on eBay here.
