Here at Banks-Lyon, we make no secret of the fact that we absolutely love watches! We believe that watches are one of those items that, while inanimate, can transcend themselves and become more than objects; they become part of the wearer.
There is no debating that a quality watch is a statement and your choice of watch almost certainly says a lot about you as a person. Whether you like a simple, clean design or something a little more eye-catching, everyone has their preference.
There is though a world of watches out there that stand out above even the accepted standards of luxury and are truly extravagant pieces of horological mastery. In this blog, we thought that we would celebrate some of these watches and pick some of our personal favourites that really push the envelope to and even beyond extravagance.
Given the latest limited edition effort the limited edition Breitling SuperOcean Replica Watches, you can be pretty sure that doesn’t mess around when it comes to watch design. The sheer detail is a pleasure to behold, and literally no detail is left to chance.
And the price for this beautiful piece of exquisiteness? $268,000! That is, indeed, a lot of money, but when you consider the sheer detail and exclusivity, we think that this watch is likely to increase in value and could be a sound investment.
At first glance, the name of this watch seems pretty unassuming, but there is one word in there that really pops out… art. Conventional thinking tells us that art can have no other function than itself, so to attach this title to a watch is a brave move.
For us though, there is no doubt that this piece of horology is art and those that are lucky enough to own one can count their wrist quite the gallery.
As an official stockist of Breitling watches, we are acutely aware of just how beautiful and well-designed they are. The range Breitling Bentley Replica Watches in conjunction with Bentley may well be some of their best ever though, and has too many incredible watches for us to choose just one.
Whether you look at them aesthetically or mechanically, there is no avoiding their excellence.
Check out the video below for more information on these incredible complications… oh and the price? Well, you wouldn’t get much change from ￡16million.
For most, owning these watches is only a pipe dream, but as horological aficionados, we like to think that we can all be a little happier simply knowing that they exist. Oh, and if you ever find yourself with one of the above on your wrist, or indeed in your pocket, then feel free to bring it in for us to have a good ogle!
