With a name inspired by the famous Alpine helicopter base used by the Swiss Air Force, you know you can count on the Victorinox Swiss Army Alpnach Watches ($2,500-$3,700) to endure just about anything. And with a stainless steel case coated in black PVD, a triple-coated, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and water resistance down to ten atmospheres, these watches definitely live up to their name. They feature self-winding swiss mechanical movement, luminous hands and hour markers, a nylon strap with a deployant clasp, and a four-blade-rotor second hand alluding to the Cougar AS 532 helicopter.
Remind yourself of how far you've traveled — whether it's a couple of timezones or nations away — every time you glance at your wrist with the Kitmen Keung Long Distance Watch ($480). This timepiece, meant as much for the man who appreciates minimalism as the man who gallivants across the globe, features two discrete faces. The first is meant to tell the current time, and is set off in high-contrast black and white. The second is meant to tell the time of wherever you came from (or wherever you're headed), and fades into the background thanks to a subtler gray color scheme. It features two individual three-hand quartz movements, a stainless feel case with a chamfered bezel, and a black Argentinian-made calf leather strap, making it as beautiful as it is simple.
Just because you can't get your hands on the original, doesn't mean you shouldn't pick up the limited edition re-imagining of the Omega Seamaster Bullhead Chronograph Watch ($TBA). Taking its design cues from the vintage 1969 Seamaster Bullhead — including its asymmetrical shield-shaped case and unique configuration of the chronograph pushers at the top and bottom — this watch is a refined version of the original. It features a brushed and polished case, flat pushers (making it distinct from the original), a sapphire crystal, and a rotating bezel on a 24-hour scale. It comes on a brown leather strap, is water resistant down to 500 feet, and limited to just 669 pieces.
