Vulcain Nautical Cricket 1970 Watch

In the decades before the advent of the cell phone, having a watch with a built-in alarm was a big deal — and Vulcain was the first to do it. Now you can enjoy the feeling of having a wrist-mounted alarm in the Vulcain Nautical Cricket 1970 Watch ($TBA). This re-issue features a 42mm stainless steel case that's a stout 17.6mm thick in order to accomodate the alarm — a Cricket caliber, shaded rings on the face for calculating diving decompression times, and a matching black and orange strap.

  • Shinola Runwell Watch

    If you thought that Chryslers were the only things still made in Detroit, you'd better think again. The Shinola Runwell Watch ($550+) is hand-made in D-town using nearly four-dozen Swiss-made parts. Features include an Argonite 1069 quartz movement, a domed sapphire crystal, a 41 or 47mm stainless steel case, an illuminated dial, and a vegetable-tanned Horween leather strap. On the back, you'll find a case plate that reads "Built in Detroit", along with the serial number. Advertisement

  • Xetum Tyndall PVD Carbon Fiber Watch

    While you may have admired the original Xetum Tyndall Watch — with its stainless steel case and bracelet — the Xetum Tyndall PVD Carbon Fiber Watch ($1,700) takes that beautiful timepiece to an entirely new level. It replaces the plain back dial with a dark gray carbon fiber one, while the case receives a powder matte black finish drawing into stark contrast the white numbers and hands (a customized black rotor complements the look around back). The watch was designed in California, but built in Switzerland with Swiss movement, is limited to just 300 pieces, and sports a naturally-tanned black leather strap with a cork lining.
