It’s no secret that you will find some of the most extreme watch nerds employed here at CHRONEXT. We live, breathe, and are absolutely obsessed with the world of fine timepieces. And indeed, there are some watches that we just can’t live without. You asked what watches we love to wear and we happily answered.


1. Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional

“History is something I’ve always enjoyed, so learning details about the moon landing in 1969 was something that excited me. What I found even more fascinating was learning about the intricate device that was on the wrists of the astronauts. Upon knowing that the Speedmaster was an integral part of the lunar mission, I knew that this watch was a must-have for me.

2. Rolex Submariner Date

“My first encounter with the Submariner in person was actually at a coffee shop. I noticed the barista was wearing a really cool watch and I just had to ask him what it was. I started working at CHRONEXT around 2 years after that encounter and one of the first things I did was buy myself the Rolex Sub Date - a watch that is still my favourite to this day.”

3. Omega Seamaster Diver 300M

“I’m not going to claim to be a huge James Bond fan - in fact, I’ve only seen one film. But that one film was enough for me to spark my curiosity and google what watch James Bond was wearing. As someone who has a passion for water sports, the specifications really drew me in. This was going to be my first luxury watch purchase, so I made sure that I read everything about it before I finally made the decision to purchase the Seamaster Diver 300M.”

4. Rolex Datejust

“One of my most prized possessions is my Rolex Datejust, not because it’s a Rolex (although it helps), but because it was given to me by my husband on our wedding day. The day our son was born, I decided that this was going to be a watch that I would definitely pass on to the next generation.”

5. TAG Heuer Aquaracer

“I always liked the look of sports watches, I think they give you quite an edge. So it wasn’t a surprise that I was gifted the Aquaracer by my parents to mark my university graduation. It’s been about 7 years since then, and I’ve bought a further 2 watches including a Rolex and a Sinn. But the Aquaracer will always remain my all time favourite.”

6. Breitling Superocean

“A Breitling isn’t usually the first luxury watch purchase for most - and it almost wasn’t mine either. I’d been researching watches online at first and was initially going to go for a Panerai. I decided to actually try both watches out in person before deciding and was immediately drawn towards the SuperOcean. I highly recommend you check watches out in person if you can, sometimes a photo may not do justice to the actual beauty of these timepieces.”

7. Breitling Navitimer

“I remember my dad always wore his Breitling Navitimer. He was a commercial pilot and bought himself this watch after saving for quite some time. The day he retired was the day he passed on the watch to me. He lived such an adventurous life, and I feel like I can always take a part of that with me wherever I go.”

8. Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

“I attained a significant goal of mine and wanted something to mark my achievement. I had pondered on the idea of buying the Daytona but let it go due to the price. But the Daytona seed was planted in my head and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I spent a few months researching it and decided that it was an investment worth making. I’ve worn it every day since I got it and not regretted it one bit”

9. Tudor Black Bay 

“This wasn’t a watch I had planned on getting. A customer had purchased the Tudor Black Bay and I was preparing it for shipment. It’s such a simple yet sophisticated watch and I felt instantly drawn to it. After preparing the parcel, I went ahead and ordered one for myself too.”

10. IWC Portugieser 

“I’ve achieved significant milestones over the past few years and developed a love for watches only after I started working here at CHRONEXT. I wanted a timepiece that served as a reminder to me of all that I have accomplished and the independence that I have acquired. The craftsmanship of IWC and the beautiful look of the Portugieser are why I decided to opt for this particular watch.”
