THE BEST Watches

Cricket Diver X-TREME

BR Minuteur Watch

Bell & Ross’ manual Minuteur watch features a horizontal design with a “minuteur” timer to the left and a flying tourbillon; it’s crafted with a titanium case and sapphire crystals.

Avalanche Extreme Watch

Avalanche Extreme Watch

The separate hour and minute hands on Alpina’s Avalanche Extreme watch are unusual, but we dig the stainless steel, sapphire crystal construction and slick manual styling.

Suunto Core Watch

Suunto Core Watch

We love multifunction gear, which is why we like Suunto’s Core Watch: designed for outdoorsy types, it packs an altimeter, barometer and compass. Oh, and it tells the time, too.

Welder K24 Watch

Any company called Welder is clearly for guys; the K24 watch is a big, burly 2.5″ watch with a thick IPB-treated stainless steel case, chunky chrono buttons and a utilitarian face.

Concord’s C1 Gravity watch is a followup to last year’s C1; available in white or rose gold, its chief feature is an externally housed tourbillon which mitigates the effects of gravity.

Fossil James Auto Watch

Fossil James Auto Watch

We admit feature a lot of expensive watches, but we dig Fossil’s relatively affordable James Automatic watch for its high quality Citizen (Miyota) movement. Note: it’s pretty big.

Quantum of Solace Watch

This limited edition Omega 007 Seamaster Diver watch is a spy’s wet dream, with 600m of water resistance, sapphire crystal cover and a dial styled after a Walther PPK pistol grip.

Bulgari Professional Aria

Bulgari Professional Aria

Classic yet industrial, we like the gear-shaped face of Bulgari’s Professional Aria GMT watch. Nice attention to detail: the world map in the background is centered on Greenwich, England.

O.D.M. Zen Watch

O.D.M. Zen Watch

We like the brute metallic simplicity of O.D.M.’s bronzed Zen Watch; most striking is its decagon-shaped, ion-plated stainless steel case that give it a clean and angular lines.
