Some watches are sporty, some watches are trendy and there are those watches that are very elegant – whichever you may choose, buying them from some of the famous watch makers in the world makes them cool. The people of these days don’t just buy any watch; they buy watches that reflect the style of today and their status in society. In this article, you will get to see some of the cool watches that are brought out by some of the most famous watchmakers of today.
What could be cooler than outer space? In the list of cool watches, the Omega Speedmaster should be one among them. Manufactured by the Omega Watch Company, this is the first watch to be worn by American astronaut on a spacewalk and also the first to have been on the moon on the Apollo 11 mission. Its sequel, the Speedster Professional is the only watch that has been certified for extra-vehicular activity by NASA. It is also known as the moon watch because of this. Ever since this, the Speedmaster has been a regular on manned missions to outer space.
A pioneer in manufacturing cool watches, the Casio Company has been well known especially for their range of digital watches. The G-shock is their most famous brand from their manufacturing unit and has many variants ever since their first model – the DW-5000C and their Frogman model has become a collector’s pride. Their watches have also become the official tool of the timekeeper at the Nismo Racing event.
Can there be any list without the Rolex? These watches have become a regular on the wrists of the rich and copies of the same are being used by the ordinary consumer although they do not match the reliability and quality of the original in any way. The Rolex Submariner is one of their most prestigious products and qualifies for list of “cool watches”. The design is very simple. As the name suggests, the watch is especially designed to withstand deep diving and also conditions of extreme cold such as those found in Antarctica. The Moana expedition is a case in point where it withstood more than thousand dives. Even forty years after its inception, the Submariner has undergone many evolutions to become a much sought-after product.
So what does Leonardo DiCaprio wear? Cool watches for cool men, goes the saying (at least now it does) and Tag Heuer watches are right up there in “coolness”. The Carrera is a brand that refuses to fade and why should it? It is one of the finest wristwatches on the planet. Created by Jack Heuer in 1963 it remains one of the best creations of the Swiss company. This is a luxury brand and is usually found among the rich and famous.
These were some of the cool watches that one should buy if they have the money and the need. The watches mentioned here don’t come cheap and you might have to look at a separate list for the rest but then, those won’t be as cool as these!
