10 classic must-have watches

Whether you’re looking to add to an already impressive collection or about to invest in your first serious timepiece, the right luxury timepiece acts as a milestone in life: a marker of time well spent. If you’re struggling to choose the perfect timepiece then allow Watchfinder & Co to help you.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms
Born in 1953 the Fifty Fathoms was made to withstand depths few people, let alone watches, had been to at the time. These features helped it to quickly become a favourite of the diving community. In the last 65 years, its design has hardly changed, acting as proof of its quality and timeless appeal.

Rolex Submariner
Rolex Submariner is a true icon of watch design. Thanks to its exceptional aesthetic and build quality, it is one of the most recognisable luxury watches ever created. Famous wearers include Robert Redford, Steve McQueen, Ralph Lauren and Sir Roger Moore.

Breitling Premier B01
As the brand moved towards sportier styles at the end of the last century, the Premier B01 was reissued in 2018 as an update to the kind of classic Breitling dress watch that had fallen out of production. Sporting a ‘modern retro’ design, it is likely this will serve as the basis for future formal timepieces from Breitling so snap up one of the originals while you can.

Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch
When Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong first stepped on the moon’s surface back in 1969, it was a version of this stainless steel chronograph that was strapped to the outside of their spacesuits. But, it’s true heritage lies on the race track on the wrists of racing drivers in the 1950s. Robust enough to stand the test of space travel or the tarmac, it is a design that is still considered a classic to this day.
