There are a number of reasons for the hefty price tags on some luxury watches.

Some brands produce watches you can easily spot from a mile away and Rolex is one of them.

However, there are a few Rolex pieces that you don’t often spot in the wild.

It wasn’t until 1962 that the Autavia was brought to the market in the shape of a chronograph wristwatch and probably nobody guessed that 50 years later it would become one of the most desired collectors items in the world of vintage timepieces.

We will compare three classic watches with timeless designs and small seconds. Again, these all hail from well-known brands that have earned their stripes in the watch industry, though each comes with its own unique history. While the watches are quite similar, the question of which watch is the right one for you can be a difficult one to answer. In the end, it will most likely come down to personal preference.

Many watches out there have been given nicknames. You can split them up into several categories, but they all have a clear reason for being there.
