IWC Watch Big Pilot Edition Le Petit Prince IW501002
Famous for its soft-iron anti-magnetic technology and its pellaton winding system for improved power supply, IWC will compromise on nothing when developing timepieces for its Big Pilot’s watch collection. If you have an IWC fan in the family, the Le Petit Prince special edition watch from the Big Pilot’s watch collection is the perfect Christmas gift this season. It pays tribute to the literacy work of Antoine de Saint Exupéry with a meticulously engraved caseback but also presents time on a signature deep midnight blue dial with a power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock. Extra special touches like IWC’s choice to complete the watch on a vintage brown calfskin strap make this IWC Big Pilot’s watch the ultimate timepiece for 2021.
Breitling Watch Chronomat B01 42 Black Bracelet. AB0134101B1A1
Maybe you’re looking to upgrade your current Breitling watch to a newer model? Breitling has always prided itself on equipping its watches with COSC-certified engines, but from 2009 it began crafting its own in-house movements. That said, there are plenty of modified movements still on offer, making those equipped with independent calibres like the B01 extra special. The Breitling Chronomat B01 42 watch is a superb all-rounder with an impressive 70-hour power reserve, a bezel equipped with the signature rider tabs, the distinct Rouleaux bracelet and a sporty trio of chronograph counters to play about with.
Bell & Ross Watch BR 05 Chrono Blue Steel Bracelet BR05C-BU-ST/SST
Speaking of sporty watches, the all-steel Bell & Ross BR 05 Chrono watch clothed in a vivid blue dial proves a popular timepiece here at CW Sellors. Collectors just love its retro-inspired square-shaped case with rounded corners and slightly industrial-inspired screws bolting the bezel down to a 100-meter water-resistant case. The silver-filled snailed chronograph counters located on an east-west axis are both easy to reference and effortless to operate. Suffice to say, a watch for Christmas doesn’t get more sporty or elegant than the Bell & Ross BR 05 Chrono.
Bremont Watch Armed Forces Broadsword Bronze Sotek. HMAF-Broadsword-Bronze-Sotek
The Bremont Broadsword Bronze watch is available in three different dial colours but there’s something so wearable and authentic about the Sotek dial iteration. The choice to craft the timepiece from bronze not only promises special resistance to salt-water corrosion, but it also develops a patina over time, adding to its character. Bremont watch collectors no doubt have fallen in love with the British manufacturer’s many exemplary models of the past, yet the Broadsword, developed in collaboration with the MoD, credits Bremont the only company allowed to bear all the heraldic badges, signs and symbols of the three Armed Forces on its design.
TAG Heuer Watch Formula 1 Ayrton Senna Automatic Special Edition CAZ201B.FC6487

Motorsport fans or collectors of TAG Heuer’s ever-popular Formula 1 watch collection will enjoy references such as the embossed “S” pattern on its leather band and the “S” decoration inside the 6 o’clock subsidiary dial.

Rado Watch Captain Cook Automatic R32505313
Rado is renowned for its innovative and daring approach to material development and research, yet this sleek Captain Cook watch is crafted from trusty, corrosion-resistant stainless steel integrated with 200-meter water resistance. If the person you’re buying for uses a watch for deep-sea exploration, swimming snorkelling or water sports, the Rado Captian Cook watch is a superb upgrade.

Longines Watch Spirit Men's L3.8126.96.36.199
The Spirit watch collection by Longines was created earlier this year in ode to pioneers of the aviation industry and professional pilots. Equipped with a legible pilot dial with lume-coated Arabic numerals, central hands and a useful date aperture, the dial is adequately protected underneath a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass lens. The Longines watch is completed on a dark brown leather strap with contrast stitching, giving the Spirit watch a distinct, vintage-inspired look.
