The Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel Watch ($10,000) — the first ever watch to accompany a man into space — has received a 1,000-piece limited edition update. The case comes in black steel with a highly-resistant carbon-based coating, with accompanying black counters and dials. An AR-coated sapphire crystal gives it water-resistance down to three atmospheres. It features a black rubber strap, Swiss hand-wind movement with a power reserve of 70 hours, red accents on its face, and a case back with the Aurora Seven mission insignia (paying homage to its original space flight).
If you're looking for a watch to suit your minimalist style, look no further than the truly-simple Bulbul Pebble Watches ($440). They have a unique, slightly-asymmetrical shape with gently-rounded edges and a curved bezel, while the face is completely without \ markings (here's hoping you have a good sense of space). The cases hold Swiss-made, gold-plated, four-jewel Ronda quartz movement with ten years of battery life. They feature a sapphire crystal and an Italian leather band. Choose from four styles: all black, all white, brown leather with a white face and silver bezel, and black leather with a white face and silver bezel.
If you're the kind of guy who's clumsy enough to have shattered more than a few crystals by now, but you still care what your wrist says about you, you owe it to yourself to check out Casio G-Shock Twisted MT-G Watches ($900-$1,100). They feature the same resistance to shock, vibration, and gravity you expect from the G-Shock brand, without the plastic appearance typical of their watches. They come in three variations: polished stainless steel and resin, ion-plated stainless steel and resin, and a black ion-plated version with gold highlights and a red-paneled bracelet. Available in November.
