Next time you embark on a trip around the world, make sure no matter where you are you never lose track of the time with the Nixon Passport Watch ($400). This watch features a bezel that rotates, letting you easily select the proper timezone out of 24 available options — so you always know the time whether you're coming or going. The 49 millimeter case is made of stainless steel with a hardened mineral crystal, a triple-gasket screw-down crown, and a screw-down caseback. The 22 millimeter ballistic nylon band has leather trim details and a stainless steel buckle to complete the rugged, yet minimalist look.
Your wrist-wear game could use a boost, and we have just the thing to take it to the next level — the Henry Singer x Bamford Custom Rolex Daytona Watch ($TBA). This heavily-customized Rolex Daytona is the result of a collaboration between Bamford Watch Department (known for their watch personalization services) and Henry Singer (a 75-year-old menswear house). Both have teamed up to bring you a timepiece that features matte black titanium coating, a mechanical self-winding chronograph, a stainless steal base, an oyster case, and an adjustable oyster lock flip bracelet.
While wearable devices may still feel like the stuff of science fiction, they are very much a reality — as evidenced by the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch ($300). This watch does so much more than simply tell time, thanks to its ability to pair with any Samsung Galaxy device. For example, it will discreetly notify you of a new text message, let you preview its contents, and then instantly open it on your larger device. Other powerful features include the ability to interact with music, letting you browse, pause, play, skip, or adjust volume. A built-in microphone, bluetooth connectivity, a video and still camera, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a pedometer further extend the usefulness of this handy watch. Available in October.
Control freaks, take notice — the Urwerk EMC Watch ($TBA) gives you more authority over the functionality of your timepiece than any watch before it. With only the touch of a button, you can access the timing rate of your watch, allowing you to fine-tune the way it tells time. Because conditions like position, temperature, and shock affect the timing regularity of your watch, having this information gives you the control you need to adjust your timing rate to suit any situation. Made from titanium and steel, with a satin finish and sapphire crystal, this watch is made to last — while a power reserve of 80 hours will keep it going for days.
Whether you're averse to wearing things on your wrist, or you're just looking for an interesting way to start a conversation at parties, the Ring Clock ($185) is the timepiece for you. Made from surgical-grade, allergy-free stainless steel, this ring shows the time using either blue or orange LEDs when you spin its face. Its thin battery charges wirelessly by placing it on the included dock, and will last for up to one week of average use. Its water-resistant exterior will also shed the odd splash or water drop, so you won't have to worry the next time you venture out into the rain.
