10 Best Luxury Watches for 2012

Chopard L.U.C 8HF
Price: Starts at a reported $19,800

Chopard is a high-end luxury watchmaker that claims it makes the fastest-beating mechanical watch on the market. Considering it is running at 57,600 vibrations per hour, that's probably correct. What that all means: The L.U.C 8HF can slice time into ever thinner slices, a wonderfully elegant trick, and Chopard has done a nice job of bringing out the hardcore engineering of this watch in its design. It is fabulous looking as well as fabulously well engineered. It has a 60-hour run time on a single wind of the barrel, and I liked the machine screws that hold the watch together. Elegant indeed.

For sure, this is a watch for geeks, by geeks. Only 100 will be made, and $19,800 is a lot of money. But for making the ultimate timekeeping statement with a traditional, mechanically powered watch, the 8HF is the watch of the moment.
