Extreme Sports, Luxury Watches
Whatever your sport of choice–there is a dependable luxury watch to meet your needs. Whether you’re into extreme white water rafting, heli-skiing, skydiving, windsurfing or free running, many luxury watch manufacturers have considered your lifestyle before designing some of the most extreme watches in the world.
White water rafting can be extreme! Consider the rocks jutting through the riverbed that can rip the underside of your raft, the potential for whirlpools, waterfalls and being dislocated from your group is realistic. While these are many of the adrenaline causing factors to the situation, you may need a nifty, extensive timepiece to accentuate your skills navigating the rivers of Costa Rican Rain forests and the mountain bases of Colorado.
Have you heard of a new extreme sport to hit the circuit called Heli-skiing? Yes, this is literally where you jump out of a helicopter onto some of the most dangerous ski slopes into the world.
Skydiving is one extreme sport that’s gained a lot of popularity in recent years. There’s no way to get the adrenaline running like a 20,000 foot free-fall!
Kite surfing is also gaining a lot of popularity in coastal areas. Based in South Florida, there isn’t a day at the beach that you don’t see a kitesurfer riding on waves, or a kicking up wake through the crystal clear water.
Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea is a perfect specimen for the occasion. While it’s classy, chic exterior compliments it’s rugged, durable design from one of the most trusted luxury watchmakers in the marketplace, this fine timepiece is depth rated to over 4000 ft (making it perfect for travelling downward quickly or making your way under the waves). This watch is one of the most rugged that the company makes and it’s described as ‘a must have for all sports [and sports watch] lovers.’
Free Running, or Parkour is defined as a military-based training discipline that involves height-based obstacle courses. While free running envelopes the principles of Parkour, it’s based primarily in Urban areas where participants jump from building to building dozens of feet above the street.
Pairing the perfect wristwatch with your extreme sport of choice is no chore. Choose from the finest of the luxury watches to find the most versatile, perfect watch to fit your sporting needs.
