Luxury watches that are made for sailing enthusiasts
Every luxury watch brand has grown its reputation around groundbreaking features and robust materials. Most of these watch brands, like Rolex, built their watches with a purpose in mind. Hence, today, we have numerous watches to choose from when looking for sailing purposes. But when you are sailing in a luxury yacht charter in Dubai, the watch that you wear also needs to be the best of the best. You cannot go wrong with any of the following watches for your next trip.
- Rolex Yacht-Master
- Rolex Yacht-Master II
- Omega Seamaster 300
- IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph
- Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore
One of the first and foremost options that arrive in any watch enthusiast’s mind is the Rolex Yacht-Master. The Yacht-Master is available in a variety of configurations as it is not actually a tool watch. It is more of a dress watch that you can also wear at a yacht party. The watch is also available in different sizes, including 37mm, 40mm and 42mm. Rolex only recently added the RLX Titanium version to the Yacht-Master portfolio, and it is only available in the 42mm case size.
While it is not designed to be a tool watch, you can still wear it for a quick swim as it is rated waterproof to 100 meters.
Rolex Yacht-Master II
Many would argue why Yacht-Master and Yacht-Master II are mentioned separately. They are essentially two different watches. While the Yacht-Master is more of a dressier watch, the Yacht-Master II is the one that can be classified as a true tool watch. It features a Regatta Chronograph. Unlike a regular Chronograph watch, this one is designed to only set a timer of 10 minutes. It is very different from all the traditional complications, and that is what sets this watch apart.
Rolex Yacht-Master II is a timepeice that, when worn on a sailing trip, will tell other people that you are both a watch and a yacht enthusiast. While the watch has a huge waitlist at the Rolex store itself, you can always get one for yourself through a luxury watch dealer like WatchMaestro in Dubai.
Omega Seamaster Diver 300
Omega Seamaster Diver 300 is by no means a sailing watch. Instead, it is made for the divers out there. The connection with diving is what makes this one also a great choice for your next yacht charter. Omega Seamaster is relatively more affordable than other luxury watches, yet it is highly recognized among watch collectors and enthusiasts alike.
Popularly known for the James Bond series, the Omega Seamaster collection is both stylish and functional. The watch is available in a variety of dial color options. You can also choose between a steel bracelet or a rubber strap, depending on what sits the most comfortably on your wrist.
IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph
While the aforementioned watches look a lot sportier, the IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph takes a more classic and elegant approach. It features a 44.6mm dial and it is available in either stainless steel or two tone option. The steel model can either be picked with a bracelet or a rubber strap.
As suggested in the name, the watch flaunts a Flyback Chronograph complication. It even gets a Date display which not only makes it a great yacht companion but also makes it a stunning daily wearer watch.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore
If you are looking to take things up a notch, you can also explore the options under the AP Royal Oak Offshore collection. Built with a robust design, the watch is made for people who like to go on adventures. A yacht charter in Dubai is a rather more smooth sailing experience, it can also get adventurous if need be. Hence, in those situations, the AP Royal Oak Offshore can be your perfect companion.
