4 Sports Luxury Watches that live up to the Name

It is common sense that the sports luxury is one of those ephemeral subgenres in watchland that hides a multitude of sins. It’s easy for a tag heuer watch maker to label any oversized solid-gold diver as sports luxe, but the reality is that most of these watches will never see any actual sports time. Obviously, that’s not good enough. So we found a select handful of timepieces that you could wear with ease on the court or in the boardroom. 
Montblanc TimeWalker Date
The fake Montblanc’s recently gave their hallmark TimeWalker line an automotive makeover, one which leans heavily on chronographs. But I actually think the simpler time and date offering is a perfect sporty-luxe piece at an entry-level price with its bright, appealing dial, simple steel case with neat cutaways and a ceramic bezel. On rubber, this thing is perfectly suited to action, adventure and well, the office.
Hublot Classic Fusion Racing Grey
Hublot Replica is a sporty brand, of course. Big and bold are some of the adjectives that spring to mind. The Classic Fusion line shares this sporty aesthetic and DNA but in a dressier, more refined package. Plus the rubber-backed leather straps mean you don’t have to be too concerned about building up a sweat.  
Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Oysterflex
It’s an obvious choice, but this Everose beauty’s inclusion isn’t solely because of the action-ready and oh-so-comfy Oysterflex. The slim case profile and Cerachrom bezel are also key attributes in the Yacht-Master’s success as a sports-ready status symbol.
Patek Philippe Aquanaut
I was never really on team Aquanaut, but then I caught up with David and his ‘one watch’ Patek Philippe replica, and I just got it. Like the replica tag heuer, the Aquanaut has the winning combo of rubber strap and slender case. But beyond that there’s a dazzling mix of finishings, an interesting dial and top-notch movement.
If I’m totally honest, this Louis Vuitton is a more luxury than sports, but with it’s comfortable newly redesigned steel case, rubber strap and practical GMT functionality, there’s surely no reason why you shouldn’t wear this beauty for a quick round of casual racquetball before a spot of sunning yourself on the deck of your (super) yacht.
