For sportspeople, timing is everything. Whether you're mastering the perfect cricket bowl or smashing your sprint record, it's all in the tempo — and the watch that will help you nail it. Athletic types will look to Roger Dubuis, Hublot and Rolex for their repertoire.
Forget complications, a style maven's taste in timepieces comes down to three things: versatility, timelessness and, of course, beauty. The sartorially inclined gent will find a watch that perfectly complements his wardrobe — TUDOR, Vacheron Constantin and Jaeger-LeCoultre are time-honoured favourites.
True horophiles know what it takes for a watch to become a design icon. Few make the cut — it takes more than just longevity, but a feat of design that captures past, present and future. Collectors worth their salt will have Zenith, A. Lange & Söhne, H. Moser & Cie. and Audemars Piguet in their watch box.
