While we wish they used actual carbon fiber faces, we still love the look of Rival Collective’s bold and modern watches, which rock a Seiko chronograph engine with stopwatch and date features, and luminous hands, set into a 45mm stainless case with a sapphire crystal.
This 38mm automatic watch not only borrows details from ’60s Ford Mustangs, the dial on each unit is actually made from the body of a wrecked Stang. The dials are coated with lacquer so that the rust won’t spread to the rest of the watch.
Unlike the glowing digits on most watches that use light-reactive paints or dyes, this very special automatic watch uses glowing micro-gas tubes to brightly light its dial at night. Pre-order now for March 2016 delivery, and get it for a special price of $853.
The Bauhaus inspired Archibald’s 40mm case comes in silver or rose gold. Its Miyota 9132 automatic movement lasts up to 40h and can be recharged by winding the crown. The watch is water resistant up to 5atm.
Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer collaborated with Intel to develop a smartwatch that doesn’t look like a geek toy. It features a round touchscreen display running Android Wear, and a titanium case. It offers realistic faces, with information displays neatly integrated into the dials.
A set of affordable quartz analog watches. Pick from five different dial materials – two wood, two ceramic and one gold – and five colors for its interchangeable leather NATO straps. Its retail price will start at $165, so Kickstarter early adopters get a great deal.
This elegant, limited-edition timepiece features a striking blue face, set into a unisex-friendly 39mm stainless case, and covered with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Its movement is Swiss-made, self-winding and automatic, and has a date calendar function.
Filson’s latest watch collection was inspired by the form and function of WWII aviator’s watches. Each one has a large 45.5mm dial, a Shinola Argonite quartz movement, a sapphire crystal, and rated to 20 ATM. Available with Bridle or Horween leather straps.
