Our Recommended Swiss Sports Watches

If you are looking for sports watches that you can swim in the sea with, time laps with, or use when mountaineering. And you will find none better than the Swiss sport watches. When you go out to buy a Swiss sport timepiece, there are a few things you need to look out for. First of all, if you are looking for a sports watch that you intend to use on a regular basis, then you need to pick one that is durable and strong.

Sports can be demanding and rough, and it’s important that your watch can go the distance – at least as far as you can! You should also look out for chronograph watches, as the stopwatch functions inherent in many of these watches can come in very useful.


If you are looking for a good Swiss sports watch, then you would be wise to check out the Burret collection. These sleek, attractive watches come in four separate collections. The first is the Burett Vitesse Collection. Complete with a Swiss swiss quartz watch movement, water resistance up to 100m, and a stainless steel case and bracelet, this watch is a great addition to any enthusiast’s collection.

It is truly a racing watch, as the word ‘Vitesse’ literally means ‘top speed’. You should expect to pay around $550 for a watch from this collection. The second style of watch in the Burett collection is the Burett 2002 Collection. The watches in this collection are waterproof up to 200m, have sports chronograph functions, and are available in a titanium collection.

The Abyss collection are perhaps my favourite swiss sports watches, and includes watches with both automatic and quartz movements. Personally, we like the chronograph alarm watch, which has both a digital display and traditional watch hands. This excellent timepiece can be bought for around $900.

Finally, the last collection (but certainly not the least worthy) is the Burett Icon Collection. The watches in this collection include dual time automatic watches, automatic watches, and automatic chronographs. The modern (and sometimes futuristic designs) make these watches highly sought after in the Swiss sports watch market.


Another great brand is Wenger, who have collections dedicated to endurance sports, such as rock climbing, mountaineering, hiking, camping, and hunting.

In particular, we are fond of the Mountaineer Chrono, which can be purchased for around $285. This stylish watch has a quartz chronograph movement, a silver dial, and a stainless steel case. The Rallye watch is another fine choice, especially the 70806, which comes complete with a black dial, date display, luminosity for night time visibility, and a tachymeter (a surveying instrument used for the rapid determination of distances, elevations, and bearings). You can pick this watch up for around $350.


However, if you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary, then you may want to check out the sports watches sold by the Swiss watch company Zodiac. Specifically, the best watches in their collections include the Marine Life watches, which retail for around $750. These watches come in a multitude of distinct styles, all of which are elegant and timeless.

Some people, however, prefer to buy sports watches as fashion accessories, or to add to an already existing collection that they display for all their friends to see. Some of the finest looking sports watches can be purchased from the Swiss company Tag Heuer, Rolex, Bvlgari.


Xantia is another Swiss watch manufacturer, whose sports watches are both practical and fashionable. Many of their best sports watches are made of solid stainless steel (with fixed or turning bezels), and are resistance to every extreme professional or sportive activity, on land, at sea. and in the air.

They also make chronograph sports watches, which are fitted with Swiss precision chronograph movements (quartz or mechanical with automatic rewind) to record every special event with absolute precision. Overall, we feel that Swiss sports watches should be bought with the intention of regular use. This is not the type of watch that deserves to be boxed up and put in a shrine. It’s a hardwearing, rock solid timepiece that needs to be used in order to meet its full potential.
