For the design, Bremont worked alongside one of the world’s leading polar explorers and brand ambassador, Ben Saunders. Having covered more than 4,350 miles on foot in the Polar regions since 2001, Ben understands all that is required from a watch for such gruelling expeditions.
Thanks to his knowledge, Bremont produced the ultimate tool watch for the extreme adventurer. At Burrells, we were also lucky enough to obtain the titanium bracelet version of the Bremont Endurance (£5,195), which is also currently available on our website: View Availability
6 - BREMONT JAGUAR D-TYPE WATCH 43MM

9 - OMEGA SPEEDMASTER MOONWATCH 'DARK SIDE OF THE MOON' APOLLO 8 LEATHER STRAP 44.25MM
Showcasing the “Dark Side of the Moon”, the OMEGA Moonwatch Chronograph Apollo 8 was first showcased at Baselworld 2018. This incredible edition is a tribute to the historic 1968 Apollo 8 mission, which resulted in the dark side of the moon being viewed by humans for the first time.
The Speedmaster Moonwatch Apollo 8 symbolises a galactic experience that the everyday human can only dream of. Most talked about on this model, is the realistically lasered movements, representing the different lunar surfaces.
If you look through the skeletonised dial, you will be introduced to the illusion of the nights sky. On the other side of the watch, you can view the transparent caseback, which shields a surface containing the dark side of the moon that only those who have walked in space have experienced.
The intricate detail incorporated into the OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph Apollo 8 is like no other. With a price point of only £7,450, this exemplary watch doesn’t only enable you to own a model demonstrating a master class in watch manufacturing, it also offers you a glimpse of a sight unfathomable to most.

Don't worry! We didn't forget the luxury watch brand TUDOR, when considering our top 10 men's watches. TUDOR is without a doubt one of our most popular watch brands, and although through Burrells they are only available through store collection services (therefore couldn't be considered for this list), we wanted to give them a special mention!
The watch features here is the TUDOR Black Bay Bronze Grey-Slate Dial and Fabric Strap
We couldn't possibly select just one TUDOR watch to feature, so we recommend browsing the full TUDOR range that we have to offer here at Burrells.
