Selection Iconic watches

These are must-have watches that have sometimes made the reputation of a brand by themselves, whether it is Audemars Piguet, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Rolex or Zenith...

They are called Big Bang, Reverso, Altiplano, Carrera, Tank or Royal Oak and are known to all watch enthusiasts but also to novices who recognize their name. They are at the origin of more or less old collections - the Reverso was born in 1931, the Daytona in 1963, and the Nautilus  in 1976 -, that have evolved over the years and grown rich of new models. The Speedmaster was the first watch worn by an astronaut walking on the moon and the Carrera is inevitably associated with Steve McQueen and motor racing. They are part of the history, as true icons.
