Available only at Barneys NYC and New York CO-OP stores, this array of 5 custom Nixon watches will sport sophisticated black colorways with high-end gold and tortoise shell accents.

Perrelet’s Split Second Chronograph is a tour-de-force complication; it sports a skeletonized face with four discs, DLC-treated stainless steel case, and sapphire crystal.
It may feature two superimposed carbon fiber/black dials, but the new Welder K24 3305 Chrono is no lightweight; it sports a giant 50mm IPB-treated case and Miyota OS10 movement.

Skagen’s Cinquecento Grigio is the Macbook Air of watches, measuring just 9mm thin; it also features a minimalist 40mm titanium case with carbon fiber dial and chain mail bracelet.
