There is no better way to start the New Year than by treating yourself and 2013 can be the year that you get yourself a limited edition timepiece. The vast majority of the world’s leading watchmakers have limited edition watches and whenever one of these is released, they are usually snapped up quickly by horology aficionados so it is important to act quickly if you want to be rocking a limited edition watch from the likes of Bremont, TAG Heuer or Breitling in 2013.
So, let’s not waste any more time, let’s take a look at some of the limited edition watches that are set to fly off the shelves in 2013:
Limited Edition U-Boat U-51 Watch
Price £5,500 ($8,500) Approx – U-Boat watches were first designed for use by the Italian Navy during WWII and the rugged, oversized look of these watches really makes them stand out from the crowd. When it comes to limited edition watches, U-Boat have some of the best in the business and they don’t come much more striking than the stunning U-51 Limited Edition Black and Bronze watch. This eye-catching timepiece has many impressive features including a bronze case with black sandwich dial, luxury vintage brown leather strap and the distinctive U-Boat oversized crown.
Limited Edition Bremont Victory Watch
Price £20,000 ($33,000) Approx – Whilst it is far from cheap, the Bremont Victory Limited Edition watch is worth every penny because it has the sort of back story that money simply cannot buy. A truly stunning timepiece and one that has been crafted using some original pieces of HMS Victory, Admiral Lord Nelson’s flagship vessel during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. It is the mechanical retrograde of the watch that features pieces of HMS Victory but the rest of the timepiece is equally as impressive with 18ct rose gold case, 46 hour power reserve, sapphire crystal glass casing and luxury black crocodile leather strap.
Limited Edition Breitling for Bentley Watch
Price £8,000 ($13,000) Approx – Breitling are one of the world’s leading Swiss watchmakers and they are without question amongst the most sought after which is testament to the quality of the timepieces that they produce. As such, it is of little surprise that when they teamed up with another luxury brand, in the form of Bentley, the interest of high-end watch aficionados was high. The sporty looking Limited Edition Breitling for Bentley watch is a must for any lover of high-end timepieces and Bentley vehicles and represents the ultimate in luxury. Just some of the features of this breath taking timepiece include a Breitling automatic movement which beats at 28,000 VpH per second and a stainless steel Bentley Speed bracelet with deployment clasp.
