Military watches are hot, and always have been, in the land of watch collectors. Add a chronograph, no, a flyback chronograph in the mix and some of you already might have guessed that we are talking about the Heuer Bund Flyback Chronograph here. These Heuer chronographs were – for their time – large pieces with their 42mm diameter cases and officially issued to military pilots.

Many luxury watch brands have partnerships with various organisations and companies from all sorts of possible fields.

Some of these cooperations actually make a lot of sense, while others leave us a bit puzzled. In this article, we'll zoom in on a couple of these watch brands and the partnerships they've formed.

In this series of articles, we always try to select to opposites. In this case, the brands are in the same league, but the watches are at miles distance. Patek’s fine Grand Complication collection consist of many interesting models, but we selected this perpetual calendar reference 5327 in white gold for this instalment of Watch Pairs. Vacheron’s Overseas collection once started in the 1970s as ‘222’, but is now a vast part of their collection of watches.

The Breguet Classique 5157 is a classic thin timepiece that comes in 18-karat white gold and yellow gold. At only 38 mm in diameter and 5.4 mm thick, this is a piece for typical formal occasions, as are most Breguet watches. Vacheron Constantin is also well known for their classic timepieces, but as an ‘opposite’ for this week's watch pair, we picked their Overseas Chronograph. To be honest, while the Overseas is a sports watch, it is not a rugged piece you'd want to take out hiking, mountain climbing, sailing, or to other extreme activities.

A pre-owned watch, or better yet, a vintage watch, can expect to be in much higher demand if it is being offered as a full set. A full set is considered the watch itself, box, papers and all other warranty-related provenance, as well as all accessories that were included when the watch was bought new.

Last year was a tough one for watch brands. They all seemed to feel the pain of the economic crisis, especially the fact that Asian and Russian customers (tourists) weren’t spending as much as they used to. The economy is slowly recovering in Europe, and perhaps in the US as well, but that doesn’t mean people are immediately spending on luxury goods like watches again. People obviously want to see real value in watches if they're spending their hard-earned money. This applies to relatively affordable watches as well as complicated high-end pieces.
