The Watchlist: up to £3000

  1. NOMOS AHOI

    Redefining ‘discreet’, and defying fashion, the Ahoi provides a made-in-house movement, a dressy case that’s still water-resistant and Bauhaus clarity.

    £2,600; nomos-glashuette.com

  2. ORIS ARTIX GT CALOBRA

    Inspired by the Mallorcan car rally once attempted by the TopGear telly boys, this magnificent chronograph displays seconds with a thermometer-type red bar.

    £2,650; oris.ch

  3. BREMONT SOLO

    While best known for more complicated chronographs, British brand Bremont also has this time-only model, harking back to classic pilots’ watches of the Fifties.

    £2,750; bremont.com

  4. EBEL 100

    Available in black, but with a choice of colour accents, the Ebel 100 is a super-chic sport/dress watch for those who think bling is for children. This is pure stealth.

    £2,200; ebel.com

  5. MUHLE GLASHÜTTE RASMUS

    Its designers wanted max legibility. Hence the huge numerals, massive hands and bezel. This is proper, no-nonsense German style.

    £2,460; pageandcooper.com

  6. RALPH LAUREN SAFARI

    Defying the curse of fashion-brand watches, Ralph Lauren quickly established itself with some serious models, like this military/vintage/rustic-themed chronometer.

    £2,150; ralphlaurenwatches.com

  7. PORSCHE DESIGN FLAT SIX AUTOMATIC

    Recalling the watches that launched the line more than 40 years ago, the new range includes this, named after the iconic engine layout.

    £2,310; PORSCHE-DESIGN.COM

  8. BALL ENGINEER AIRBORNE

    This tough-as-nails working instrument features a shock-resistance system, anti-magnetism and gas-filled tubes for luminosity.

    £2,640; ballwatch.com
