Svelte sport watches

Af­ter years of sport watches get­ting pro­gres­sively thicker and chunkier, the tide of more-is-more in watch de­sign is fi­nally be­gin­ning to ebb. This year some of the world’s pre­em­i­nent watch­mak­ers of­fer ver­sions of their most beloved time­pieces that can fit com­fort­ably be­neath a shirt cuff.

Vacheron Constantin Over­seas Ul­tra-thin Per­pet­ual Cal­en­dar in Pink Gold The Over­seas doesn’t get as much at­ten­tion as other clas­sic sport watches, but this slim new edi­tion ought to change that. $ 9 4 , 5 0 0

Pan­erai Lu­mi­nor Due This two-year-old col­lec­tion slims the chunky Lu­mi­nor for dress oc­ca­sions, and adds a quick-change strap mech­a­nism so it al­ways suits your mood. FROM $6,000

Cartier Drive de Cartier Ex­tra-flat At 6.6 mm thick, and now avail­able in steel as well as gold, this sim­ple time­piece is the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of clas­sic el­e­gance and rugged­ness. $20,600

Aude­mars Piguet Royal Oak RD#2 The “RD” is for R&D, mean­ing the world’s thinnest per­pet­ual cal­en­dar is just a pro­to­type (for now). Given its pop­u­lar­ity so far, how­ever, it may be the shape of things to come from Aude­mars Piguet.
