2020, The Watch Year in Review: 10 Captivating Chronographs

Today, we spotlight 10 standout chronographs launched in 2020 Bulova added to its historically inspired Heritage Series with the Chronograph A "Surfboard," based on a watch produced from 1970-71 and nicknamed for the quirky, blue surfboard-shaped oval encompassing the two subdial counters at 3 and 9 o'clock Chopard's sport-luxury Alpine Eagle collection, which traces its origins to the St.

Moritz watch of the late 1970s, expanded this year to include an "Extra-large" 44-mm flyback chronograph model, the Alpine Eagle XL Chrono The steel cushion-shaped case measures 42.3 mm in diameter, with an off-center, engraved crown at 4 o'clock and chronograph pushers at 10 and 2 o'clock, evoking the "Bull's head" designs of vintage stopwatches Bordering the dial are two white-and-red minute tracks, the outer one for elapsed minutes, the inner for elapsed seconds; the prominent numeral "60" at 12 o'clock echoes the look of stopwatches from the 1960s and '70s.

The Streamliner, which won a 2020 GPHG prize, debuted with a Funky Blue dial this fall The watch has all the elements of a classic Speedmaster, with some extra-special details added, like the image of Snoopy on the 9 o'clock subdial; the use of blue ceramic for the tachymeter bezel, and most notably, the "Animated" design of the caseback, upon which an astronaut Snoopy in a command module travels around a photo-realistic moon in tune with the motion of the chronograph while a spinning Earth disk rotates once per minute in accord with the seconds hand The 42-mm case frames a silver opaline dial that is noteworthy for the horizontal applied "8" symbols in its center, representing both Jack Heuer's 88th birthday as well as a double infinity loop, a sly visual reference to Jack's motto, "Time never stops, why should we?" Like its siblings in the Carrera Chronograph collection, distinguished from the mainline Carrera models by the lack of a tachymeter scale on the bezel, the watch contains the automatic, Swiss-made Caliber Heuer 02.
