Here are my top five favorite watches for BMW drivers.

It’s no secret that watches and cars go together like spaghetti and meatballs, or beer and cookies. Okay, maybe that last one is just me. But regardless of your personal combination preferences, watches and cars are a match made in heaven.

Both mechanical, both take immense talent and dedication to make and both, if you get good ones, cost way more than we’d all like.

Now, I know many will have an issue with some of my choices, as per usual, but here are my top five favorite watches for BMW drivers.

  1. Rolex Submariner: Okay, so a pretty safe, maybe even a bit boring, choice here. Everyone with even a little bit of money has a Rolex Submariner, but there’s good reason for that. The Submariner is a high-quality item with a solid, reliable movement that will stay working forever, with the proper care. It is also meticulously finished with immense attention to detail. With classic looks and tried and true movement, the Rolex Submariner is a timeless watch that looks good while driving any car.

  1. Bremont MB: Bremont is one of the lesser known watchmakers on the market. Hailing from Britain, Bremont makes incredibly durable and reliable pilot’s watches and even offer a three year warranty. The MB line of watches is named for, and designed in joint with, aviation company Martin Baker, a maker of aircraft ejection seats. With a real aircraft history, Bremont ties in well with BMW. In also looks the business with a classy aeronautic design and an automatic movement made in house by Bremont.

  1. Nomos Zurich Weltzeit: Nomos is also a very little known watchmaker whose movements are all made in house. Nomos also happens to be German and made in Glashutte, Germany. This particular watch, the Zurich Weltzeit is a gorgeously appointed GMT watch with its Bauhaus styling and sunken disc face. The Nomos Zurich Weltzeit is a wonderful, German-made, business-persons watch with class, sophistication and style.

OMEGA-Speedmaster-Professional-Front

  1. Omega Speedmaster Professional: The Speedmaster isn’t a great watch. It’s the great watch. As the first watch to go to the moon, the Omega Speedmaster is one of the oldest designs on this list. Still with the originally designed, albeit slightly updated, movement from the 60’s, it has a real aerospace pedigree. It’s also one of the most accurate chronographs on the planet and is one of the classiest watches money can buy. Its simple yet timeless design perfectly fits the style and pedigree of BMWs well. The professional can be had with an automatic movement or a hand-wound one, but the hand-wound is the one to get as it’s the original.

  1. Tag Heuer Monaco: Tag Heuer can take a bit of flak for being the watch that every pretender wears, but the Monaco is the real deal. Named after the famous Monaco Grand Prix, it has one of the best Motorsport pedigree out of any watch on the market. Also, famously worn by Steve McQueen in the movie, Le Mans, it has some star power as well. The only square watch here, the timeless design of the Monaco, along with its Motorsport pedigree, make it number one on this list.

    BMW Individual once made a 760Li Special Edition for Girard-Perregaux, so I think any model in their collections would be suitable :)

    Why the Submariner as opposed to the Daytona which is of course more closely related to motorsport?

    You have two of my favorite watches on your list and one of my favorite lines of watches as well. I absolutely LOVE some of the stuff coming out of Oxforshire. Bremont’s Boeing and Supermarine lines are beautiful but I first fell in love with their MB line of watches. I have to say that I can do without all of those special editions that they make though. Similarly, Nomos is one of my absolute fave brands and that World Timer is the first watch of theirs I would purchase if I had the pennies (but in blue not white). Lastly, While I love Speedies it would be that absolute stunner called the Mark II that I would purchase first. Of the three watches mentioned it would most likely be the one to grace my wrist if I had that kind of money. Throw in some Grand Seikos and perhaps a Sinn or two (or 5) and I would be a happy man indeed! But alas, being a graduate student doesn’t allow for such extravagance. Perhaps one day.

    Good call on the Speedmaster – which, BTW for all the Daytona lovers, beat that watch in tests by NASA for going to the moon.. :)
    Also, I have a vintage one, so nice to see.
