Victorinox Legacy Réserve de Marche Platine Watch

Victorinox Legacy Réserve de Marche Platine Watch

If you've ever wondered what watch Bond would wear while he was on vacation, you need look no further than the Victorinox Swiss Army Legacy Réserve de Marche Platine ($19,500). Available in a limited run of only 60 numbered, platinum cases, the Legacy is a manifestation of practical luxury incarnate. The highest level of care and attention has been employed in the creation of this timepiece which features luminous numbers, platinum detailing, and the reliability and perfection of Swiss engineering. It might not be able to remote control an Aston Martin, but the self-winding Legacy never needs batteries, and the bezel, horns, and crown are covered in genuine rubber for durability and longevity. Delivered in a presentation box, the watch includes an extra strap, a viewing magnifier for detail inspection, and a numbered certificate of authenticity. [Thanks, Paul]

  • LÜM-TEC Watches

    A handsome, hand-assembled limited edition watch for less than $400? To watch nuts, that question usually elicits slobbering laughter. Not anymore. LÜM-TEC Watches ($295-$595) meet all of the above descriptors and then some. Produced in quantities of only around 150 of each, the watches are built with 316L surgical grade stainless steel, sapphire crystals, and MDV ("Maximum Darkness Visibility") technology, a "special 6-layer application of Superluminova applied over a chemical coated white base, causing an incredibly bright luminescent light charge." We've been testing out the M5, and while the face is a little wide for our nerdy arms, it's stunning. Other favorites include the Bull45 A2 and Combat B1. Upcoming 2009 models look even better, and you can reserve them now. The individually numbered watches also come with excellent leather storage cases. All in all, you're looking at probably the best kept secret in the watch industry.
