5 Best Luxury Superyacht Sailing Watches

Kata Rocks picks the world’s most incredible yachting watches! No superyacht owner can step on deck without a classic sailing watch; here are five of the top luxury nautical watches – ideal for sailing, yachting or boating – you really need to know more about.

Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Tourbillon – To the untrained eye, the Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Marine Tourbillon appears to have a garden-variety retrograde minute display, but a closer look unveils an inspired design that pays tribute to all things nautical. The blued-aluminum minute hand is shaped to resemble a boom, the sail-controlling spar used to execute tacking and jibing maneuvers.

Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback – Officine Panerai has a long association with the sea, dating backing to the days when it was the official watch of the Royal Italian Navy. This particular model features some ingenious functions which make it a must have for any team member vying for on-the-water glory. However, do you really need a superyacht to justify the purchase of this beautiful timepiece? Probably not as the Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback looks great both on land and sea.

IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph ‘Ocean Racer’ – This highly exclusive watch’s production run was limited to 1,000 pieces to celebrate IWC being the official time keeper for the Volvo Ocean Race in June 2015. It chic clean design features a flyback function and aggregate timing of up to 12 hours, shown by an analogue display with two hands in a subdial. We really liked the see through sapphire crystal case back, with the 360-degree rotor modelled after a ship’s wheel.

Rolex Yacht-Master 40MM – Ideal for sailing, this watch features a bidirectional rotatable bezel made of platinum or gold to track elapsed time; large hour markers and hands ensure legibility as the black ceramic bezel and chromalight emit a beautiful blue glow after dark. It also has this model’s first-ever rubber strap – but, being a Rolex, this isn’t your Dad’s rubber strap. The watchmaker invested in and patented an all-new material: Oysterflex bracelet, a super-thin metal blade overmolded with high performance, supple black elastomer.

Slim d’Hermes Perpetual Calendar – This time piece will make you stand out in a superyacht crowd. Unlike others it doesn’t need a nautical design to project ocean going expertise, the Slim d’Hermès is a time-only watch and its mechanical, ultra-slim, micro-rotor movement projects understated elegance worthy of any superyacht owner. The gloriously simple typeface used draws attention to it. A brand with a widely admired aesthetic sensibility, Hermes’ created a custom font specifically for its timepieces and it is magnificent.
