Let’s face it: we all love fall and its associated activities. The golden foliage, casual jackets and even pumpkin-flavored drinks. You know, fall things. But have you considered a reliable, casual and stylish watch for the season? We’ve got you covered with these six options:
Aside from the handsome tan-strap-on-cream-dial motif, Sinn’s latest timepiece has a unique chronograph movement: a runof- the-mill Valjoux 7750 modified to take split-seconds time measurements.
While lots of watchmakers dig on vintage style, Tudor actually had the nerve to give the Black Bay Heritage a vintage size. While the Black Bay Heritage 36 is clearly a dive watch, the decreased case size (36mm) calls to mind the looks of a vintage Rolex Explorer. And that is fantastic.
Oris Diver 65 Carl Brashear
Bronze is trending in watchmaking. It makes for a particularly interesting case material because of its beautiful shade. But aside from cashing in on the bronze trend, the new case is a nod to Carl Brashear, the US Navy’s first African-American and amputee Master Diver.
MIDO Heritage Barconelli
With the lauded ETA 2892-A2 movement and a superslim 6.85mm case plated in rose gold, MIDO’s newfor- 2016 dress watch is a hell of a steal at $1,090 that will complement the warm colors of your formal outfit this fall.
Longines says its watches were widely used by rail workers in Romania, Serbia, Persia, Italy, Chile, Canada, the United States, Turkey and China in the early half of the 20th century. Celebrating that lineage, Longines has released a wristwatch inspired by those early timepieces, sporting a dial with 24-hour markings.
Filson Smokey Bear Watch
Filson’s classically styled field watch not only feels appropriate for brisk nights around the camp fire, but it’s also a reminder that the burden of forest-fire prevention rests solely on you.
