A good watch is the number one accessory for men and let's face it; it can turn any ordinary outfit into a distinctive and elegant look. Do you know which are the most sought-after watches?
According to the Chronext ranking based on the 2018 sales of the leading luxury watch e-shop, Rolex continues in the leading position, as the most coveted watch. As a matter of fact, on the top-10 list, the Swiss luxury brand appears in the top-3 spots.

Interestingly, for the first time, a women’s watch has made it to the top-10 ranking, proving that women are becoming more relevant in the luxury watches world. Not only diamonds are a girl’s best friend!


So here are the most desired - and most sold - luxury watches in the year 2018:

1 - Rolex Submariner Date

This beautiful Rolex has been considered one of the best watches in history for decades. It is both sporty and elegant; no wonder men love it!

2 - Rolex Datejust

The model with simple and sleek lines and date display has been since 1945, the go-to watch for understated and effortless elegance.

3 - Rolex GMT Master II

More sporty and modern, this model that shows three time zones simultaneously, was launched in 1985 and remains today, one of the most coveted Rolex watches.

4 - TAG Heuer Formula 1

Sporty and practical, this TAG Heuer is also very robust and popular among men.

5 - Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional

One of my brother’s favourites, the Moonwatch is a watch for men who are fascinated by history and technology, since it was famously worn during the first moon landing!

6 - Omega Seamaster Diver 300 M

In last year’s ranking, the Seamaster Diver was in the first place. It is one of the most popular Omegas because of its high-technology and beautiful design.

7 - Breitling Superocean II 42

It is the watch for professional and amateur divers and ocean lovers alike.

8 - Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

This classic Rolex, especially the steel model, has become a cult watch due to its rarity

9 - NOMOS Glashütte Tangente

The minimalist and elegant wristwatch is already a design classic.

10 - Cartier Tank Solo

This legendary watch, which first appeared in 1917, is easily recognised by its famous rectangular shape, the Roman numerals and a small sapphire or spinel cabochon set in the crown.
