TISSOT T-RACE [The Crossbreed]

MICHAEL KORS [The Tech Watch]
Dylan Smartwatch (MODEL NO: MKT5011)

Part of Michael Kors’ first sports smartwatch collection, it also has its own app! The app allows the owner to experiment with the watch and set different modes. Apart from Google, you can also access apps such as Spotify. It has a builtin mic and is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled for an enhanced Google Voice experience. It will also track the steps you take, the distance you run, and calories burnt. Goodbye fitness trainer, hello AI! Sadly, it isn’t water resistant…

OMEGA SEAMASTER [Honourable Mention]
Commander’s Watch [DIVER 300 M (LIMITED EDITION)]
Priced at: ₹3,11,500

Unveiled in London earlier this year, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300 M Commander’s watch is a tribute to James Bond and at first glance, your heart will beat faster. With only 7,000 pieces up for grabs, the watch has a sporty strap as a tribute to the British Navy. Lindy Hemming, costume designer on Bond movies, recommended that the film’s makers feature the watch. For the lucky few who manage to acquire one, the watch comes in a special box that features a stainless steel bracelet and a naval pin. Happy diving!

MOVADO [The Edgy]
Edge (MODEL NO: 3680029)
Priced at: ₹80,000

Its stark, vivid blue lava-textured concave dial juxtaposed against the polished stainless steel link bracelet and body renders the Movado Edge, edgy. Swiss designer Yves Béhar’s signature on the caseback adds to its eccentric appeal. Its hour hand is polished silver while the minute hand is matte blue. A raised signature at 12 o’clock stares at you like a third eye. There are no hour and minute markers, making its minimalistic design even more surreal. Water resistant upto 30 metres.

LONGINES [The Classic]
Priced at: ₹46,500

Classic, simple, neat, the Longines La Grande Classique white dial is encased in an 18 karat gold-tone stainless steel case with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal covering and black strap. Its Roman numeral hour markers give it an elegant charm, apt as it is part of the Longines Elegance collection. It displays a date window at the three o’clock position and has a traditional pull/ push crown. Great style statement for both work and those ultra-luxe cocktail evenings. Water resistant upto 30 metres.
