The military-inspired Bell & Ross Vintage PW1 Pocket Watch ($3,000) doubles as a daily carrier and as a collector's piece. It sports a Swiss movement, vintage-look domed crystal made of anti-reflective sapphire, a clean and super-legible sunburst dial, an easy-to-use grooved crown inspired by the ones handled by pilots, and a barleycorn guilloché caseback to go with the long chain.
Scaling Mt. Everest is certainly a brag-worthy feat. But becoming the second generation of your family to do so? Well, apparently that's worth releasing a special edition goodie box inspired by your parent's first trip to the top of the world. These Rolex Hillary Tenzing Edition Watches ($39,000) — commissioned by Peter Hillary and Jamling Tenzing Norgay, two Everest veterans and sons of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, the first humans to scale the peak — are customized Rolex Explorer watches that come in a handmade expedition crate that's also filled with custom-made vintage items commemorating the original 1953 ascent. If you want in, you'll need to hurry — only 88 packages will be made.
With an unorthodox shape and equally unorthodox looks, the Tendence Gulliver Square Watch ($480) is a refreshing break from the normal circular-cased timepiece. Its squarish, oversized 50mm case is made from stainless steel and polycarbonate, water resistant to 330 feet, and encloses chronograph and day functions, as well as 12 burnt orange markers, making it an instant hit at Uncrate HQ.
