A Comparison of Three Amazing Chronograph Watches.


Time is a unique entity. The need to maintain perfect time is the goal of all luxury watches, but just having a standard watch face is often not enough. Luxury watches of today maintain a high level of functionality and beauty, but more and more luxury brands are embracing the concept of Chronographs. These additions function as a stop watch adding to the versatility of a luxury watch tremendously. There are many different Chronograph watches available today, and we will look at three of them, The Rolex, Cosmograph Daytona, The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self Winding Chronograph, and The Patek Philippe Complications 5070R-001.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona

Rolex is known for producing some of the most word renowned luxury watches on the planet and their Rolex Cosmograph Daytona carries on that rich tradition beautifully. This luxury watch is comprised of classic Oyster Steel to allow for maximum durability and luster. Originally made over 50 years ago for the use of racecar driver, the newest model maintains the classic black and white time face designed to stand out and provide maximum visibility, but it also houses key modern amendments to the original design. 

Pristine timing is key in a quality Chronograph watch and with the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, an emphasis on precision is found in every aspect of this watch. Engineers worked diligently to produce an instantaneous response when the stopwatch function is pressed. A crystal clear click mechanism provides easy access to precision stop watch timing and this watch is not merely designed for the average user. It is designed to hold impeccable time up to 400 meters deep, so it is not merely for the racecar driver, but swimmers as well.

Patek Philippe Complications 5070R-001

The rarer the watch, the more valuable it becomes and the Patek Philippe Complications 5070-001 is currently a discontinued model. However, this truly inspired watch maintains a classically beautiful time face with classic features and an almost antique quality that is often neglected by some modern watch brands. Soft rose gold encapsulates the watch face offering a sleek, yet functional winding mechanism and stop watch button. 

In addition to the stop watch feature, the Patek Philippe Complication 5070R-001 features one of the most comfortable wristbands available on a luxury watch. The leather strap allows for maximum movement and comfort for the wearer while providing an additional level of classic beauty to the time piece. It is all held together by the notable Patek Deployment Clasp, so you can enjoy your watch for years to come without worry about the clasp wearing down. 

This stunning representation of classic beauty is all that a chronograph watch should be and more. The Patek  Phillipe Complication 5070R-001 is just one in the coveted Complication series by Patek Philippe. Currently, discontinued, when you find this watch available, it is one that should not be missed. 

Chronograph watches come in a wide range of different types and styles to suit the needs of even the most discerning luxury watch owner. These watches may have been originally designed for racecar drivers, but are instrumental for swimmers, runners, and all types of sport watch needs. Luxury watches such as these can be work for sport purposes, but are stunning enough to be worn to an evening event or a night out on the town.

Each attribute is carefully selected to provide ultimate beauty, quality, and functionality to each piece.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self Winding Chronograph

This stunning representation of a truly luxurious chronograph watch has been designed to be not merely beautiful, but highly functional with a striking blue dial with pink gold applied to each of the hour markers.
