8. Zenith Heritage Pilot Ton-Up
Must see: One of the hottest watches to debut at Basel — and an immediate favorite amongst watch aficionados — the 45mm Pilot Ton-Up is an impressive "everyday" watch that’s priced with tons of character. Powered by the automatic El Primero calibre 4069 movement, this aged steel timepiece echoes the spirit of the Café Racer motorbikes. It drives central hours and minutes hands, small seconds at 9 o’clock alongside the chronograph functions, while delivering an over 50-hour power reserve. Setting the final touch, an oily nubuck rubber-lined wristband, fitted with a titanium pin buckle, accentuates the watch. Price: $7,100.
Bonus: Celebrating the world of classic motoring, Zenith has created a world celebrating the gentleman’s lifestyle in keeping with its 2016 theme. Plus, as an added bonus, hop into the photo booth for a four-frame picture featuring sports cars, motorcycles and the Pilot Ton-Up watch.
