The Watchlist: over £2K

  1. HUBLOT F1 King Power

    A stonking 48mm chronograph, by the official watchmaker of F1, made from radical alloy, 18-carat ‘King Gold’. Bezel looks like a drilled brake disc.

    £31,500; hublot.com

  2. MONTBLANC Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph

    Named after the inventor of the chronograph. Resembling a 2008 watch that used a similar layout to his 1821 original, but this time there’s a second time zone.

    £8,700; montblanc.co.uk

  3. PANERAI PAM 00423 Luminor Marina 1950

    For those who fear their watch winding down, there’s a power meter to monitor the manually wound movement. This 47mm watch needs an Arnie-sized wrist.

    £7,200; panerai.com

  4. PERRELET Turbine Racing

    Perrelet’s unique double-rotor system includes blades that rotate within the dial. So it’s like looking at a Porsche 917’s cooling fan through the glass
    engine cover.

    £5,150; perrelet.com

  5. RADO Hyperchrome Golden Horse

    Rado is best known for modernist ceramic watches, but this year there’s a retro vibe with this reissue of a watch from 1957. Only 1,957 will be made of this certified chronometer.

    £2,190; rado.com

  6. RAYMOND WEIL Nabucco Titanium

    Value for money may seem meaningless when we’re talking four figures, but this chrono offers just that: high-tech, killer looks and pub bragging rights.

    £3,295; thewatchgallery.co.uk

  7. RALPH LAUREN Sporting Black Ceramic

    The man with one of the world’s best car collections also makes watches for car people. Here, mean black ceramic is enhanced by coloured inserts.

    £5,300; ralphlauren.co.uk

  8. RICHARD MILLE RM 011 LMC

    Richard Mille marks 10 years of supporting the Le Mans Classic. The chrono has a 24-hour counter as a tribute to the race, and the pushers look like pedals.

    £82,500; richardmille.com

  9. ZENITH Big Date Special

    As the only brand allowed to use the word ‘Pilot’ on its dials, Zenith has to deliver watches worthy of the privilege. This one earns its wings with a perfect dial and El Primero movement.

    From £4,700; thewatchgallery.co.uk
