Editor's Notes

September 12, 2019:

While availability issues caused us to remove a few pieces from our last ranking, there was also an imbalance between quartz-powered and automatic options on our previous list, with only two of our previous ten selections boasting automatic movements. So, we went and found a few fantastic mechanical offerings to replace the quartz models that had become unavailable, and we also found one model that is an automatic version of a previously included quartz watch — namely the INOX at number two. The balance now favors automatic movements, with six mechanical models to four quartz options.

Among the quartz-powered options on our current ranking, we added a chronograph at number nine that comes with a panda-style dial, harkening to the extraordinarily popular — and insanely expensive — Rolex Daytona. You may actually notice some other Rolex DNA in a few of these watches, with the simplicity of their Air King line embodied in Victorinox's AirBoss, and a Submariner-esque case shape found in the aforementioned INOX. This isn't to say that Victorinox doesn't know how to design a watch on their own terms. If anything, it just shows how they can both create pieces uniquely their own and derive inspiration from some of the more successful designs in horology.
