Named for the Instagrammers that hashtag photos of their watches every week, the Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday Watch blends together several vintage touches in a new limited edition. The overall design is inspired by the "Alaska Project III" model built for NASA in 1978, distinguished by its brushed matte finish stainless steel case and radial subdials. Speaking of subdials, it also sports a "reverse panda" dial first introduced in 1966, joined by a vintage Omega logo and matte black aluminum bezel ring. It's powered by the same calibre 1861 movement as the Moonwatch, and arrives with its own leather watch roll, a vintage-cut brown leather strap, a spare white and black striped NATO strap, and a strap changing tool. Limited to just 2012 examples, it's also the first Omega to be sold directly online.
The Apple Watch is already fairly rugged, despite its sleek appearance. The MTM Status Apple Watch Case will make it far more so. Made to fit any 38mm Series 2 model, this burly add-on adds a pair of circular micro-dials to the side and standard lugs to the top and bottom. You can mix-and-match between dial options, including a 12-hour clock, compass, digital date, or digital clock, each available in different styles. The case itself is made from either anodized 7075 aluminum or Grade 2 Titanium, accepts 24mm MTM bands or straps, and arrives in packaging that's designed for re-use as a charging dock.
Decked out in a stealthy matte black, the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 Black Ceramic Watch is the sleekest version of the company's signature chronograph yet. The 45mm case, bezel, lugs, and case middle are all made from micro-blasted black ceramic, making the watch durable, scratch-resistant, and highly stylish. It's powered by the in-house Calibre HEUER-01 movement, has a skeleton dial with luminescent black markers and hands, and is water resistant down to 100 meters. Available with a rubber strap or a matching H-shaped black ceramic link bracelet.
Sapphire is commonly used to cover watch dials, and often, used on the opposite side to provide a view into the inner workings. The Bell & Ross BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire Watch goes one better by building its entire case out of sapphire. The process takes hours of machining and polishing just to make a single case, comprised of nine separate parts. In addition to its namesake Flying Tourbillion, it also has a mono-pusher chronograph function, both of which are highly visible thanks to the case. Rhodium plating on the markers and hands joins the Superluminova in creating a timepiece that almost glows in certain light. Finished with a strap made from translucent rubber and metallic Kevlar weaving.
Inspired by their military watches produced in the 1940s, the Hamilton Khaki Field Watches combine rugged materials and textures with a refined range of designs. The collection offers a variety of models that includes anything from a 42mm stainless steel and blue canvas combo to a blacked out PVD-coated automatic. Cases start at 38mm and go up to 44mm, while bands come in stainless steel bracelets, leather, rubber, and canvas. Also available with an array of dial and face colors.

The latest release in the Hawker Harrier line from AVI-8 continues to draw its name and inspiration from the unique avionic engineering behind the Hawker Harrier, and its custom built Pegasus engine from Rolls Royce. And just like the Pegasus, the Avi Pegasus AV-4047 Watch's Miyota Japanese made 21 jewel self-winding movement is the heart and soul of this watch. It registers time using a set of 3 individual discs showing the hour, minutes, and hands rotating across the layered dial. Each timepiece is crafted out of Marine Grade 316 stainless steel with a sapphire lens and fits comfortably on your wrist thanks to a buffalo hide genuine leather strap with bi-color detailing. Available in Solid Stainless Steel or in a version featuring Titanium Carbide plated onto the case.
