The Everyday Watch

“Is that your father’s watch?” Said nobody ever about a two-tone dive watch in pink gold and steel. You see, while dear old dad wore his gold retirement gift with pride, it was, like his pleated trousers, of a different time. These modern timepieces—equal parts sporty and elegant—will slip neatly under the cuff of a subtly pinstriped (and immaculately tailored) wool and cotton suit, announcing to the world that you are a gentleman who takes cues from the past while looking steadfastly ahead.

The Special Occasion Piece

Formal occasions are all about pomp, ceremony and tradition—that’s why black-tie attire allows very little room for improvisation. These dark-faced dress watches are the equivalent of a midnight blue tux: traditional in form, but just unique enough in their details to set you apart from the crowd.

The Style Statement

Like an immaculately preserved vintage car, a timepiece with a bold pop of colour is an indulgence—a worthwhile one. It’s not going to come out every day, but when it does people take notice. These verdant pieces will add panache to your look when worn with mustard yellows, dark browns and navy blues. And unlike a classic car you can enjoy these watches all year round.

The Weekender

Dressing for the weekend is about finding the perfect balance between practicality and style. This combination of a quilted vest, fine merino sweater, wool trousers and casual boots is as at home in the ski chalet as it is strolling the city streets. The racing watch accomplishes the same goals: it’s a classic and functional timepiece (those chronos come in surprisingly handy) with a hearty dose of high-octane aesthetics.

The Wild Card

Like an immaculately preserved vintage car, a timepiece with a bold pop of colour is an indulgence—a worthwhile one. It’s not going to come out every day, but when it does people take notice. These verdant pieces will add panache to your look when worn with mustard yellows, dark browns and navy blues. And unlike a classic car you can enjoy these watches all year round.
