Six breathtaking watches that will stand the test of time.

 

    

1. Breitling Aerospace Co-Pilot
You don't have to fly planes to wear the Aerospace Co-Pilot watch. You just have to be cool. After all, its rugged titanium case (water-resistant to 100 meters) possesses an auxiliary LCD readout with four display modes: local time, chronograph, take-off time, and landing time. A planned “emergency version” of the Co-Pilot will include a built-in distress transmitter with a 100-mile range in the event of an untoward incident during your travels—allowing for a swift rescue in true James Bond style. $5,375
