THE BEST Watches
Limited to just 3000 pieces, this retro-modern LCD watch is a reproduction of the classic Seiko Speedmaster, created by famed automotive designer Giugiaro, and worn by racer Ayrton Senna. It features a curved Hardex crystal, tachymeter, stopwatch, alarm, and timer.
The latest model of Ressence’s unique floating face watch. The Type 2 is a mechanical watch that can always adjust itself to the right time after only one calibration, no matter how long since you’ve last used it. You can also calibrate it via its app. Drops 4/2019 for $49,000.
There have been several officially licensed Nintendo Game Boy watches, but we think this one is among the best. Not least because it’s still available for purchase. The watch uses the Super Mario Land theme as its alarm sound and its buttons are used to set the time and date.

In celebration of Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday, accessory maker Nixon has teamed up with Disney for a series of unique and playful wristwatches. We love the motion in Look Out Below, but our favorite is the brawler known as Dust Up. In a variety of sizes and designs.
A bold chronograph inspired by the instrument gauges on Ferrari’s famed thoroughbred sports cars. The 46mm watch features three inner dials, and a tachymeter bezel for calculating speed based on time. In Cherry Red or Electric Yellow. Save for a limited time at Massdrop.
While a watch face is an important part of its design, its strap is often just as critical in its look. Our friends at Everyday Carry offer up a selection of fabric, rubber, and metal straps to freshen up your favorite watch, or to update that one you left sitting in the drawer.
For lovers of G-SHOCK watches who want even more substance, the G-STEEL GSTB100XA-1A is the one to wear. The solar-powered watch features a steel case, sapphire crystal, carbon fiber bezel, bright LED lighting, and Bluetooth connectivity for internet synchronized time.
