Shinola Brakeman Watch

Named for the brave locomotive brakemen of the early 1900s, The Brakeman watch by Shinola ($625-$725) allows you to always be wearing classic America-made style, no matter what the rest of your attire entails. Like The Runwell, another handsome watch by Shinola, The Brakeman is entirely hand assembled in Detroit — including the Argonite movement, which is assembled from over 50 Swiss-made components. The Brakeman, available in 40mm or 46mm sizes in a variety of straps, sports a stainless steel case in five finishes, along with several different dial options, all of which feature a date magnifier, Super-LumiNova markers, and sapphire crystal protection. Precision internals, disguised as a sleek, everyday looker. That's Shinola at their best.

  • Montblanc Sport DLC Chronograph Watch

    If you spend your weekdays working in the city and your weekends retreating to the outdoors — whether you're backpacking, climbing, hunting, kayaking — you need a watch that looks great but won't fall apart the first time you bash it into a rock. The Montblanc Sport DLC Chronograph Watch ($6,100) was built with durability in mind, so it's trail ready, but was designed with a masculine minimalism that suits your business casual. It's made with a hardened stainless steel case, thermally treated, and coated with black carbon, all making it much harder than the average timepiece. The screwed case back and screw-down crown make it water resistant down to 200 meters, while the luminescent hands and face make it easy to read no matter the conditions.

  • Autodromo Prototipo Chronograph Watch

    In case you've forgotten, at one point watches actually served a purpose beyond status symbol or menswear accessory — people actually used them to keep track of time. The Autodromo Prototipo Chronograph Watch ($625-$775) pays homage to an era when the wristwatch was a tool that made the difference between winning and losing, the era of prototype sports car racing (think 24 Hours of LeMans or Daytona). These watches feature the sorts of tools race drivers need: with subregisters on the right and left to measure seconds and hours up to 24, a tachymeter to determine average speed, and a pulsometer to calculate heart rate. Perforated watch bands, styling suggesting the curves of a race car, and color schemes commemorating motorsports legends (on the limited edition Vic Elford variant) complete the package.
