Breitling Avenger II Seawolf (2016)
We begin with this eye-catching Breitling Avenger II Seawolf, which is a relatively recent model from 2016. This particular watch has been designed by one of the best timepiece manufacturers in the world, and is extremely precise and reliable, whether you’re on land, at sea, or in the air. The watch movement is automatic and self-winding, and is water resistant to a depth of 3,000metres – which is about a third of the depth of the Mariana Trench; the deepest known point in the Earth’s oceans!

The striking yellow dial and brushed stainless steel case brings functionality and flair together, creating a truly impressive timepiece that would look great in any collection.

Ladies Omega Constellation (1998)

The Constellation design from Omega is iconic, with many different variations in colour and additional decorative aspects available, and we think this version is one of the most attractive – it’s luxurious without being gaudy, and offers high precision timekeeping as you would expect from a world-leading manufacturer such as Omega.

TAG Heuer Carrera
If understated elegance isn’t your thing, perhaps this TAG Heuer Carrera is more up your street. With its striking looks and exposed internal workings, this timepiece is certainly a conversation starter and one which looks impressive no matter where you’re wearing it. Designed to be highly functional, with a number of ‘complications’ (the horologist’s term for additional features), the TAG Heuer Carrera is certainly a watch-lover’s watch.
This watch has an automatic movement, with a large 45mm stainless steel case. The rubber bracelet is designed to be hard-wearing and comfortable, which is ideal for those who lead busy, active lifestyles. You can view the internal working parts from the front or back of the watch, and this gives you a really interesting view through the many layers of top-class internal construction and design. This is a watch that is always going to be interesting to look at, and is currently excellent value for money.

Raymond Weil Freelancer
There are a number of watch designs out there which feature ‘windows’ so you can see the internal workings, and while this can be used to dramatic effect (in the TAG Heuer Carrera above, for example), some enthusiasts prefer a more understated, less cluttered look. This beautiful Raymond Weil Freelancer 2710 achieves this easily, with a sleek elegance being integral to the design. The open aperture allows you to peek in at the intricate workings, and a small window in the dial puts the balance wheel in full view.
This watch is described by Raymond Weil as a mix between ‘sporty’ and ‘modest’, with plenty of elegance thrown in for good measure. The stainless steel case is screwed down tightly to ensure water resistance up to 100metres, and the anti-glare crystal glass on the dial means this watch is easy to read no matter where you are. This watch is available for an incredible price in our sale, making it the ideal treat or gift purchase.
