The Most Popular Luxury Watches (That You Can Actually Get Your Hands On)

Luxury watches have a tendency to develop cult followings. These are the popular luxury watches that people are willing to wait in line for; not because they’re limited edition (because why people want those is a given). These watches are on every wish list because of reasons beyond simple supply and demand.

Although most, if not all, Submariner models have a waiting list—no surprise considering it’s one of the most iconic divers on the market—there is one that stands above the rest when it comes to desirability.

Aptly nicknamed The Hulk because of its green cerachrom bezel and green sunburst dial reminiscent of the Marvel superhero, the unusual color of the Submariner 116610LV has catapulted it to the top of Rolex lovers’ must-have lists.

Jaeger LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Perpetual

One of the most iconic models of JLC is the Master Ultra Thin, which sprung from the idea of creating ultra thin movements and timepieces that started the partnership of Antoine LeCoultre and Edmond Jaeger.

The main reason why the demand skyrocketed for this model, particularly the silver dial version, is the blockbuster movie “Dr. Strange” (sensing a theme here?). When Benedict Cumberbatch played the titular role, he wore this watch in a few pivotal scenes of the movie and, as Marvel is Marvel, people took notice. Cue cult status for the Master Ultra Thin.

This particular piece features a flyback chronograph with a pulsometer dial, so generally speaking, the 1815 Chronograph is a traditional and straightforward watch. Simple? Not really. Flip the watch over and you’ll understand what the fuss is all about: the in-house caliber L951.5 in all its glory. Regarded as the most beautiful movement ever made, it looks like a miniature city viewed from above, truly a masterpiece.

IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Le Petit Prince”

When you think of a pilot’s watch, the first brand that comes to mind is IWC. The large case and dial make for a very legible watch, and the chronograph function is a great addition to an already good looking timepiece.

However, the “Le Petit Prince” takes the original idea and takes it to a whole new level. Inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novel of the same name, and created for the benefit of his foundation, it features a blue sunburst dial, brown calfskin strap made by Santoni, and an engraved caseback featuring The Little Prince himself.

The design that gave birth to the luxury sports watch and saved mechanical watches from the quartz crisis. Designed by the godfather of watch designers, Gérald Genta, it made a surprising splash, considering it was only made of steel and had a simple time and date complication.

This watch is considered by many to be the perfect all-around watch. Its clamp down construction makes it possible for you to take it to the beach for a swim. Its clean lines mean you can wear it to a meeting. The slim case can be worn under a cuff for black tie events—but it’s still bold enough a statement when worn jeans and a plain shirt. All of this is backed up by its relevance in the rebirth of the mechanical watch industry and the birth of the luxury sports watch.

The Daytona needs no introduction. It’s arguably the most iconic Rolex line. Ever.

The reference no. 116500LN is the latest addition to the popular Daytona line, featuring a black cerachrom tachymeter bezel, a white dial, and a black subdial outer track. The color contrast is reminiscent of the vintage Daytona 6263, a popular choice for vintage Rolex collectors.
