Good afternoon, watch lovers and readers of my blog!
It’s no secret that having enough money, you can buy yourself any watch that you like .
So I decided to fantasize and make a small TOP-3 of the best wristwatches from the luxury segment, which I would have purchased first, having a sufficient amount.
The TOP is compiled exclusively in my opinion, but I am waiting for your suggestions for the best watches in the comments!
Men’s watch Tudor Black Bay GMT
1) Tudor Black Bay GMT
Tudor is one of those brands for which I have sincere respect and sympathy . And the thing is that, being a subsidiary of the well-known Rolex , Tudor did not become a “miserable parody” of these, but on the contrary – they produce extremely decent various watches , and relatively recently they also presented very good and competitive “in-house” calibers.
Tudor Black Bay GMT watches
The Black Bay GMT is perhaps one of the most successful and underrated Tudor models. Crafted in a distinctly vintage style , I admit, very reminiscent of the Rolex GMT-Master of the last century , this 42mm steel watch boasts the trademark MT5652 caliber inside , excellent value for money and, in my opinion, simply stunning design .
The face of the watch is the most attractive sight
The aforementioned caliber has date and second time zone complications , a decent 70-hour power reserve , 26 jewels , operates at 28,800 vibrations per hour (4hz), and, most importantly, is a COSC-certified chronometer (i.e. its accuracy is -4 / + 6 seconds per day).
The watch has a convex sapphire crystal , a bidirectional rotating bezel , a screw-down crown , an excellent phosphor and an aluminum bezel insert with hour markers for a second time zone ( giving it an even more vintage and look ).
How the watch looks on the wrist
Their price is about ~ $ 3750 , which, in my opinion, is quite reasonable money for a luxury watch with a proprietary movement , a real history and an extremely attractive design .
This is especially noticeable when you remember that the price of similar Rolex GMT-Master II Pepsi equals $ 24,000 (that is, the price of eight Tudor Black Bay GMTs).
Omega Seamaster Professional 300M Men’s Diver’s Watch
2) Omega Seamaster Professional 300M
Unlike the previous Tudors, the “Bond” Omega Seamasters cannot be called underestimated . Quite the opposite, this watch is a cult model of the most famous watch house and a favorite of many enthusiasts, as you can already understand, to which I am one.
The most attractive, in my opinion, the performance of this watch
Outside – 42 mm steel case , distinctive and recognizable diving design (ceramic bezel, bomb lum, screw-down crown, helium valve and 300 meters of water resistance) , inside – a stunning brand METAS-certified “in-house” co-axial escapement caliber Omega 8800 (35 jewels, 55 hours of power reserve, 25,200 pcb / h, anti-magnetic protection and silicon balance spring) .
Just the perfect watch formula for the money – it’s not hard to see why these Omega are a real hit.
Watch face close up
The Seamaster Professional 300M is available in a variety of designs and variants, my personal favorite is the version with the Zirconium Oxide dial and blue bezel on the steel bracelet.
The price of such watches is ~ $ 4200 (which is almost three times cheaper than its main rival – Rolex Submariner, with which these Omega are often compared).
The side of the case, the helium valve is visible
By diving watch , I feel kind of weak, and frankly, Seamaster Professional 300M me very catchy , despite the fact that it is relatively expensive watch, I would call them a priority on my list of desirable hours.
Most expensive watch published today – Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712 / 1A
3) Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712 / 1A
The most expensive watch in my personal TOP, as expected, belongs to the famous Swiss watch house Patek Philippe and is a variation of , perhaps, their most famous model – Nautilus .
The rounded octagonal case, first “born” by the genius of designer Gerald Genta , the Nautilus has now grown into a myriad of different variations .
At least a chronograph, a perpetual calendar and a version with moon phases, power reserve, small seconds hand and date indicator managed to see the light.

It is the latter (along with the original Nautilus “Jumbo”) that seem to me the most organic and attractive , even despite the insane price of $ 125,000 ( for execution in steel, I am silent about the price of gold and platinum ones ).
Numerous complications create an extremely unusual look, ideally, in my opinion, complementing the original idea of Nautilus, and, in general, make the watch much more prestigious , really more functional and aesthetically pleasing .
Phosphor of hours in the dark
Nautilus, in itself, is already a legendary watch , and the modification with the reference 5712 / 1A takes it to a new level . The caliber 240 PS IRM C LU with a 48-hour power reserve, the aforementioned complications of the date, moon phase, small seconds hand and power reserve indicator, is a true work of art in a beautiful case of the highest quality.
Caliber of these Patek Philippe through the case back
Dear readers, in this TOP I tried to include those luxury segment watches that attract me the most. Unfortunately, such wonderful chronometers as Omega Speedmaster Professional, Rolex Datejust, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and many others did not fit into it , but I will try to tell about them in the following publications.
What watches would you include in your TOP-3 of the best luxury wristwatches? Write in the comments! I am happy to read about your desired and favorite accessories!
