1. Tudor Grantour Fly-Back
According to the BMWBlog, the Tudor Grantour Chrono Flyback is the latest in motorsport-inspired watches from the famed Swiss brand. The Grantour Chrono Flyback is a 42mm chronograph with a Flyback function. What the Flyback function does, is allow for the chronograph to be reset by the push of one button. On a normal chronograph, when the the chrono is started, it must be stopped and reset before starting off again. So, from start to finish, the process takes three button pushes. With the Flyback function, it takes one to start, but then one to reset each and every time. This is incredibly helpful for when, say, timing laps around Circuit Of The Americas. Both chrono buttons can be locked, with a quarter turn of each, to insure to no accidental pushes.
2. Hublot Classic Fusion Blue
According to Govberg Jewelers, this classic fusion timepiece combines elements of Hublot’s traditional art of fusion, with a titanium inner case, ceramic outer case, sapphire crystal, alligator leather strap backed by Hublot natural vulcanized rubber.

4. TAG HEUER Carrera Calibre 5 Black Dial
The 39mm cases strike the right balance between elegance and function says Hodinkee.
