We'll admit: we're not used to seeing B&R watches that don't sport the company's signature squarish body, but the Bell & Ross Vintage Officer Watch ($TBA) instead opts for a more traditional round case that adds to its vintage feel. It also features a domed crystal that recalls those of the '40s, cockpit-inspired dial graphics, and a choice of two Swiss movements: an hours, minutes and seconds version, and a chronograph version. Available in subdued black or brilliantly shiny silver, both arriving with an alligator strap that adds to the formal feel.
Whether you're going to a meeting, out to dinner, or to the moon, you can stay on top of the time with the Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow Co-Axial Watch ($TBA). Available with either a black or sliver dial, the Broad Arrow features a "Geneva Waves" pattern on the dial, three chronograph counters with beehive detailing, a 44.25 mm stainless steel case, either blackened or rhodium-plated hour and minute hands, a date window, and water resistance down to 100m. For the jet set crowd, it's allows for changing the hour hand independently, letting you switch from West Coast to East Coast time -- or vice versa -- before your smartphone even has a chance to boot up.
Like the disturbingly large number of trusty warships cruising the world's oceans, the new line of Nixon Gunship Watches ($190-$500) are made to age with character. The special finishes of the oversized 51-30 Chrono, the subdued Sentry, the triple-movement Banks, and the sporty Player are designed to wear increasingly as you wear them, giving each an appearance that's as unique as it is rugged — unfortunately, we can't wear the badass 51-30 pictured above, as it makes our twig-like wrists look even tinier.
