A new year comes for many people with new years resolutions, and they often involve the gym. Of course, you don’t want your wrist game to suffer when you give it your best, and with these four watches, you don’t have to!
Richard Mille RM 50-03 Tourbillon Split Seconds Chronograph Ultralight McLaren F1
Taking a Richard Mille to the gym might seem like overkill, yet these watches are made for an active lifestyle, with a focus on superb shock resistance. Another great advantage is that they are very light, so wearing them is comfortable, because you almost forget that you are wearing a watch at all. This particular one barely weighs 38 grams, strap included, yet packs a horological punch by featuring not only a split second chronograph but also a tourbillon!
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Carbon
Another brand that makes ultra-light, yet highly complicated watches, is Roger Dubuis. With the Excalibur Spider Carbon, the brand realized an industry first by crafting the movement plate, bridges and tourbillon upper-cage from carbon. This watch will not go unnoticed when you enter the gym with them, yet again, its low weight might make you forget that you are wearing it yourself. That is of course until you check your wrist and are mesmerized by the flying tourbillon!
Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45
Want to keep track of your work-out? Then the Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 is a perfect choice! Developed in collaboration with Intel, it features a wide array of sensors and a handy interface to give all that information back to you. Thanks to its modular concept, you can easily swap out lugs, straps, and bracelets to anything that matches your workout gear. After you leave the gym, you can even swap the smartwatch module for a mechanical one, and yes, there is even a tourbillon available, for people who want the best of both worlds!
Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph New York
No matter what your sport of choice is, the chances are that Hublot is involved in it. The brand sponsors a lot of different sports, as well as some iconic athletes. Recently they deepened their ties with the New York Giants, and serve for the second year in the row as official timekeeper for the team. They also announced that they team up with Giant’s quarterback and captain, Eli Manning. They celebrate this with a special watch, the Classic Fusion Chronograph New York, featuring a blue carbon fiber bezel, and a unique strap which resemblance the leather of a football. The result is a very sportive watch that is bound to draw attention!
