Luxury Watches for Work and Play
Watches That Are Great for the Office and Relaxing on the Yacht on Weekends
All work and no play makes for an unfulfilled life. We all need to step out of our work environment from time to time and let loose to have some fun. Weekend activities can include anything from hiking and biking to yachting and jet setting, but no matter what you do, you will need to keep track of the time. Luxury watches come in all styles, but the best ones are those that can follow you from the office to all your weekend activities without missing a beat. Here are our top picks for luxury watches that are ideal for both work and play.
Richard Mille RM029
A beautifully designed watch can accentuate any outfit whether it is a business suit or more casual attire. The Richard Mille RM029 is the watch for those who desire elegance and a refined design, but also crave impeccable functionality. This beautifully crafted timepiece features an elongated face with a horizontal display.
Most luxury watches feature a rounded design as it is the most traditional form of watchmaking, but by elongating the watch face, the watchmaker maintains far more usable space. Therefore, the Richard Mille RM029 not only looks incredible for both office life and leisure activities, but it also provides a more organized time face featuring a larger date display. This watch took a staggering 10 months to design and is among the best luxury watches for both work and play.
Patek Philippe Nautilus 7118/1A
Luxury watchmakers vary by their quality, structure, and materials used in the process. Time and time again, Patek Philippe features new designs that are timeless treasures to behold. Among these, remarkably designed timepieces are the Patek Philippe Nautilus 7118/1A. This watch remains as one of the more simply designed luxury watch styles, but that is part of its appeal. The Patek Philippe Nautilus 7118/1A is a ladies’ automatic winding watch with a stainless steel finish. It is part of the coveted Nautilus collection featuring a range of different finishes and colors to fit every style perfectly.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona
Rolex remains one of the oldest and by far the most well-known luxury watch manufacturer. Their watches have been featured in film and remain historically as one of the most sophisticated and accurate watch companies the world over. Among their most popular and spectacularly designed watches for both work and play is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. The watch features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal face and that classic oyster bracelet that is so popular among the Rolex brand. Additionally, this watch maintains 3 sub-dials including a 12 hour, 30 minutes, and 60 minutes, so no matter your time needs, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona has you covered.
Cartier Santos 100
Cartier has been in business since 1847 and since its inception, the company has become world-renowned for producing some of the most beautifully designed watches on the market. Unlike some other brands, Cartier also provides a unique customization quality to their timepieces. Among the top sellers for the brand is the Cartier Santos 100. Although among the more simply designed watches we feature in this article, the Cartier Santos 100 certainly delivers on functionality and high-quality design. This luxury watch maintains a square face with classic stainless steel rivets to hold it all in place. The Cartier Santos 100 comes standard with a black crocodile leather bracelet, but the bracelet is easily switched out with additional colors to enhance the overall style needs of the wearer.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner
Although the Submariner edition watches from Rolex were discontinued in 2010, their fame and exceptional beauty live on. Collectors clamor to get their hands on these remarkably perfectly crafted pieces, but these watches were not made to simply sit on a shelf. They are designed to be used for work and play with unique colors such as green. This series is an anniversary series for the company and the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner featuring the green dial is among the most coveted designs. Although a green dial might sound garish for office attire, the jewel tone of the watch makes it ideal for virtually every occasion.
We all must work and when given the chance, a little rest and relaxation are in order as well. Never leave anything to chance with these handcrafted, spectacular timepieces conveniently fitted on your wrist. They allow you to close that big business deal while still looking great while relaxing during your leisure time. Having a dual-purpose watch like these featured gives you one less thing to think about during your busy day. Let these watches make your business sweeter and your holidays more enjoyable.
