Not many watch manufacturers can claim a history dating back to 1758, but Gevril is the exception. As Designer Watches Online notes, it’s not always been smooth sailing for the brand, but after several years in the wilderness, it came back fighting in 2002 under new ownership. With their entire line consisting of limited-edition pieces, and with only 6000 watches produced every year, the brand has become synonymous with exclusivity and quality. If you’re hoping to add one or two Gevril watches to your collection, you’ll struggle to find better than these ten little gems.

Handcrafted with a jaw-dropping attention to detail and offering a score of notable features, the Gevril 3123B Men's Seacloud Automatic Watch sits as easily in the boardroom as it does in the great outdoors. Whether you’re an adventurer, a businessman, or just someone with an eye for quality, the bold, dynamic aesthetic, genuine Swiss-made automatic movement, anti-reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, highly legible dial, and water resistance to 660 feet won’t disappoint.

Designed to take you from the great outdoors to the boardroom with ease, the Gevril 46003 Men's Canal Street Automatic Diver Watch manages to combine a sporty ruggedness with classical elegance to superb effect.
