"We've never had such a balanced ranking before," says Philipp Man, founder and CEO of CHRONEXT. "The fact that Rolex is no longer the sole front-runner is certainly also due to the classic GMT-Master II (reference 116710LN), which Rolex took out of its product range at Baselworld in March and which, as a potential investment model, is recording a price increase.”
Functional, precise and strong in character: the famous Chronomat is one of the great Breitling classics. One of the best-selling models of the Grenchen-based manufacturer continues its success story today. With its stylish bezel and famous chronograph display, the watch is easily recognised and is one of the most famous chronographs in history.Rank 10 - Breitling Chronomat
In 1963, the Carrera - inspired by the legendary road race Carrera Panamericana in Mexico - was introduced for professional racers.
