7 classy dress chronographs that add an edge to your look

Tracking elapsed times, chronographs are a common feature of sporty, rugged watches. But, as these dress chronographs, the dynamic complication can also add a jaunty edge to the most formal timepieces.


    The Breguet Classique Chronographe 5287 features several updates on traditional touches. The brand’s signature dial decoration – mixed engine-turned patterns, including hobnail and barleycorn motifs – forms a classic juxtaposition against a sizeable and decidedly non-traditional 42.5mm rose gold case. Inside, the manually wound Breguet Calibre 533.3, which features a column-wheel chronograph, is based on a classic Lemania movement dating back to the 1940s.
