Limited edition watches break the mold of expectations of modern timepieces. Some of them have 500 models produced, while a few have less than 10 in the whole world. They’re not special simply because of the low quantity. These LTD watches have components that make them unique in comparison to any other watch on the market.
After seeing a handful of rather impressive limited edition watches for both men and women, we knew that we had to make a list. Whether you’re interested in getting one for yourself or you can appreciate the art and functionality of LTD watches from afar, this selection has something that we can all enjoy.
While there are hundreds, maybe even thousands of limited watches across the world, we wanted to only include those that truly impressed. Here are the best-limited edition watches currently in circulation.
Our Favorite LTD Edition Watches
1. Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Limited Edition
Starting with the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Limited Edition Men’s Watch, you’ll quickly understand why it’s so special. The face of this watch is covered with sapphire glass, which prevents glares from showing it. It also does a great job of being scratch-resistant and secure against splashes and rain damage.
This Swiss-made watch is designed with luminescent hands to brighten up your watch, even in the darkest places. It has a fixed bezel made of ceramic to protect the dials and other internals from being harmed. Even the dotted strap is comfortable and stylish. Sharply pointed hands stretch out from the center, creating an enticing picture.
Try out the stopwatch, the 12-hour time mode, and various other options. Everything on this timepiece is operated from the three knobs on the right side of the face. The center knob has a crown-style shape, enable easy access as well as a quick way to secure it in place. From side to side, top to bottom, this is one of the most attractive watches that money can buy.
+ Comes with a stylish, comfortable watch strap
+ Made with sapphire glass
+ Crafted with a fixed ceramic bezel
Why We Like It – We like this LTD watch because it’s the epitome of classy, high-end design. Omega is known for this, but even they outdid themselves!
2. Tag Heuer Carrera Senna Special Edition
Next up on the list is the Tag Heuer Carrera Senna Special Edition Watch. This watch is limited in production, making it a rare find. The bold Arabic numerals spread across the face make it easy for you to view the time wherever you go. It also features a 12-hour counter, a 30-minute timer, and several addition time-telling features.
Using a stainless steel bracelet, this watch is definitely one of the toughest around. It combines the solid steel silver color with a bright, bold red that offsets it very well. The second’s hand is also made with the bright red coating. This skeleton watch shows the mechanism that leads to some of the most accurate timing around.
Much like the previous entry on the list, this LTD watch has a ceramic bezel. However, this bezel is black to balance the contrast. It has a simple clasp underneath that can be adjusted to size by removing and replacing the stainless steel links. Clip it in place, push in the crown on the side, and go for a swim since it’s rated down to 100m.
+ Stylish Red, Black, and Silver color combination
+ Beautiful skeleton design
+ Built to last
Why We Like It – We like this watch because it looks limited right away. The bold colors shine well in any light, bringing attention to the intricate design.
3. Breitling Chronoliner B04 Limited Edition
The Breitling Chonoliner B04 Limited Edition Watch is almost as limited as you’ll have access to on the internet. There are only 250 currently produced, making it an unforgettable find for those who can get their hands on one. The Rose Gold and Blue colors create a combination unlike any other.
This watch is technically reminiscent of a flight master’s watch, which could be a huge part of a timeless collection. It has a 70-hour power reserve to overshadow most non-limited watches on the market. There are two sets of hands on the face of this watch; One set is a 12-hour local time mode, while the other tracks a 24-hour mode.
With a red tip on the edge of the 24-hour hand, there’s no way that one could confuse either-or. To set this even further apart from other watches, this also has a dial that can be set to an additional time zone of your choosing. When you’re in the air or on the ground, knowing the time throughout the world is essential.
+ Set multiple time zones
+ Comes with a 70-hour power reserve
+ Incredibly fascinating Rose Gold and Blue design
Why We Like It – We like this limited edition watch by Breitling because it looks amazing and it has multiple functions to replicate the needs of a flight master.
4. Omega Speedmaster Apollo XVII 45th Anniversary
Another limited edition Omega Speedmaster watch is the Apollo 45th Anniversary Men’s Watch. This watch flashes a blue ceramic dial alongside the 18k yellow gold found throughout the timepiece. You’ll also notice that it has a handful of timers and a 12-hour time cycle. The ancient Greek god Apollo is also featured in a bright gold tone.
Sapphire crystal makes up the glass portion of the watch’s face. It’s treated with an antiglare coating to preserve the internals, protecting them from sunlight damage and annoyances.
The water resistance rating of this watch allows the user to swim down to 50 meters (or 165 feet) without experiencing any issues.
This manual winding watch is 42mm wide, making it an instant eye-catching from size alone. 18 jewels decorate the surface as well, further adding to the awe of this stunning watch.
+ Made with 18k yellow gold, sapphire crystal glass, and 18 jewels
+ Features the Greek god Apollo
+ Manual winding movement
Why We Like It – We like this watch because it’s glamorous and it represents everything that we’d hope for in a limited edition watch.
