THE BEST Watches
The Marc is perhaps Original Grain’s most stunning watch design, packing chrono features in a brushed stainless steel case with elegant burled wood around on its face, bezel, and wristband links. It also comes in rosewood or ebony with espresso stainless.
Our pals at Everyday Carry gathered up the best gear they spotted last month, from useful and beautifully-designed knives, to tools that stow in an iPhone case, to compact and easy to carry wallets. But what we want most is that stunning bronze Helberg CH6 wristwatch.
There is nothing subtle or simple about Vacheron Constantin’s masterpiece. The Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600 is a double-sided watch with 23 complications, including ones for the season, sunset and zodiac. It costs a cool $1 million.
Mr. Jones Watches‘ wonderful analog timepiece features an fanciful image of a happy tiger, based on a handpainted design by artist Fanny Shorter. The hours are displayed in the moon floating overhead, while the minutes are camouflaged in the tiger’s stripes.
Sped-up footage of the insanely complex Hautlence Moebius, a $250,000 timepiece that has a tourbillon movement that spins on a second axis as it moves. Hours are displayed on a turning chain, while minutes appear on the gauge at center. Here it is at normal speed.
The Ticwatch S (Sport) and E (Express) are the newest smartwatches from Mobvoi. The S has an integrated watchband with the GPS receiver inside the band for better reception, while the E has swappable straps. They both run Android Wear 2.0 and are water- and dust-resistant.
