Bold enough but not over-the-top, the Jacky Ickx edition of Chopard’s flyback chronograph offers hints of racing inspiration without the all-out roar of an un-muffled engine. Black accents on a stainless steel case surround a chronograph dial that emphasizes the dashboard look of the limited edition. Released last year, Hublot’s special edition commemorates Ferrari’s 60th anniversary with a Bang - a Big Bang that is. Woven carbon fiber outside and Hublot’s own Unico engine within mark the historic milestone in a no-holds barred sports watch that begs to go fast.

Ernst Benz’s Chronoracer uses a popular vintage racing color combination to instill the feel of a motoring-inspired watch. 2016 | WRISTWATCH 75
