THE HOT LIST
Sometimes a watch is more than meets the eye. That’s true of these timepieces from Ulysse Nardin and Breitling.

02. ULYSSE NARDIN FREAK VISION
The Freak Vision ($95,000) is an evolution of the InnoVision 2 Concept Watch that Ulysse Nardin unveiled in 2017. The shape of a boat hull inspired the flying carousel, whose motion tells time in a unique way and is the inspiration for the timepiece’s name.
03. BREITLING EXOSPACE B55 YACHTING
An electronic tachymeter, a countdown timer for regatta starts, and other sailing-inspired features are built into the Exospace B55 Yachting ($7,170). Pressing the crown or tilting your wrist activates two backlit LCD screens with smartphone-style features.
