Rolex, Breitling, Omega: 3 Top Sports Watches

Highlights from the Chronos Sports watches catalogue 2016/17

Those who think of high-quality mechanical sports watches will not pass the big names Rolex, Breitling and Omega. This year, each of the three luxury watch brands has presented several attractive sports timer, all of which are presented in the new Chronos Sport watch catalogue 2016/17. Here are the favorites of the Chronos editorial office:

Place #3 of sports watches-new products 2016: Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-king

In the spotlight, 2016 is more likely to be the new version of the chronograph best-seller Daytona, but the air-king has undergone much stronger changes: The formerly elegant 34-millimeter watch, which was more suited for ladies, was emphasized this year as a sporty 40-millimeter model with striking minute figures and green and golden color accents revived. The stainless stainless with manufacture automatic caliber 3131 costs 5,650 euro.

Place #2 of sports watches-new products 2016: Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer

So far, the planet Ocean has been a chic but relatively nicely designed representative of the diving divers class. Now, in the cheeky two-coloured design, she draws all eyes on herself. The orange-grey titanium version with a bracelet made of rubber and textile has a particularly modern look. Inside, the whole collection now ticks so-called Master works (here the automatic caliber 8900), which not only run Chronometergenau, but are also tested by the independent institute Metas on an enormous magnetic field resistance up to 15,000 Gauss. For the second-placed novelty of the year 2016, 7,100 Euro will be payable.

Place #1 of sports watches-News 2016: Breitling Avenger Hurricane

Breitling watches are large, striking and more recently black. The Super Avenger Hurricane adds unaccustomed bright orange color accents. Even more interesting is the new housing material called Breitlight–a composite material that weighs only one third of titanium. This means that the huge 50-millimeter shell including manufactory-automatic caliber B12 comes to only 69 grams. And the best part: With a price of 7,960 euros, the technology carrier is hardly expensive than other manufacture chronographs from Breitling.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-king, Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Master chronometer and Breitling Avenger Hurricane are described in the Chronos Sports Watch catalogue 2016/17 with all technical data in detail – as well as other 1,200 models of more than 120 brands.
