Sporty Watches

Sports watches are robust, highly functional, and usually water-resistant wristwatches. A sports watch is easily legible, fulfills a function, has some degree of shock resistance, and is highly resistant to bumps, physical contact, and scratches. These aren’t rules written in stone, and a sports watch doesn’t have to encompass all these features for it to be a sports watch. And you don’t have to do sports to wear one.

When to wear a sports watch?

You can wear a sports watch according to the activity that you are planning to do. Sports watches are designed to be worn when doing sports, as a rule of thumb. However, luxury or classic sports watches look good with any apparel, apart from the most formal of evening wear.

Modern sports watches are stylish and versatile – wear at the weekend with jeans and a hoodie, at work with your blazer, at the gym or the swimming pool. The choice is yours!

Well known sports watch brands

Rolex is known for its sports watches. The Rolex Submariner is one of the most famous sports watches ever. A stainless steel watch designed for diving with a 200-meter water resistance, a sturdy sapphire glass, and a screw-down crown, looking good on any wrist. Other Rolex models like The Rolex Explorer or the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona are on the wishlists of many.

Audemars Piguet’s iconic sports watch, the Royal Oak, was the first sports watch ever presented in stainless steel with an integrated bracelet and remains a best-seller today. Breitling is credited with the modern chronograph design and has a full sports watch collection, many with handy functions. TAG Heuer is very involved in the world of motorsports, tennis, heritage, and football with a ton of ambassadors and events that represent their famous tagline #DontCrackUnderPressure.

Some of the best sports watches for women

There is no shortage of choice when it comes to sports watches for women. Tudor has one of the best sports watches for women on a leather strap, the Tudor Heritage Black Bay, as sporty as it is vintage looking. If you are a water fan, take a look at the TAG Heuer Aquaracer, available with a white ceramic rotating bezel and strap and a 300 meters water resistance. Or the Oris Divers Sixty Five, a robust dive watch in stainless steel and bronze.

Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph may be big but remains resoundingly feminine with a host of different dial and strap colors, set with diamonds or not. Omega’s Speedmaster for women is a celebrity in the sports watch category, famous since Buzz Aldrin first wore it in the 1969 moon landing.

A sporty watch coveted by many women is the Chane J12 Chronograph Watch, available in full white or black ceramic. Chanel took the watch industry by storm when they launched their first J12 in 1999, and its appeal over the years has not lessened.

The very affordable Casio Baby-G is available in a wide array of colorful models to suit every taste.

Some of the best sport watches for men

Patek Philippe’s Nautilus is one of the most sought after luxury high-end sports watches in the world. It is incredibly comfortable to wear; it’s highly legible, slim, lightweight, stylish, and can be worn with virtually any outfit and in any circumstance. It’s ultimately one of the best all-rounder watches you can find. A Nautilus is also a wise investment; these watches are known to increase in value over the years. 

The Rolex Daytona became famous when it was first seen on the wrist of Paul Newman. The actual Daytona owned by Newman set the world record for the most expensive watch sold at auction in 2017 at a whopping USD 17.8 million.

SEIKO’s Astron is the world’s first GPS solar watch, using the energy it takes from the sun resulting in no battery needed. The solar GPS communicates with your GPS network quickly and precisely, adjusting your time zone wherever on earth you may be.
