A full stainless steel watch has always been a key piece in a man’s watch collection and the Carl F. Bucherer Manero AutoDate is a solid option to fill that slot. With its generous 42mm round case, full steel multi-link bracelet, and clean and crisp dial with fine details such as faceted indexes and an appealing pie-pan style, the Manero AutoDate is a great everyday sporty watch. Plus, there’s also the added practicality of a date function and an automatic movement.

If chronographs are more your speed, then Breitling is the brand for you. The Windrider Cockpit Chronograph sports signature Breitling design hallmarks from the tachymeter bezel with four rider tabs to the onion winding crown to the trio of registers on the dial that work in conjunction with the chrono pushers on the case. Contrasting with the 39mm stainless steel case and black dial are plenty of 18k yellow gold accents while the black leather strap is finished off with white stitching. At the core of this Breitling chronograph is the COSC-certified B13 Caliber with about 42 hours of power reserve.

For a dressier approach, the Corum Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Automatic is both precious thanks to its 18k rose gold construction and distinct due to its geometric dodecagonal 42mm case. The somber gray dial and classic black leather strap keep things elegant, as does its slim profile. The automatic movement powering the center hands, running seconds subdial, and date function is visible via the sapphire exhibition caseback.

Designer Cufflinks for Him

Cufflinks are a great way to add a personal touch to the ubiquitous suit and tie look and we have plenty of designer cufflinks at ShopWorn that would make fantastic gifts this holiday season.

Mixing steel with leather is one of our favorite combinations in watches and the same rings true for cufflinks too. These round polished steel Davidoff Velero cufflinks include a textured black calfskin leather center for a classically elegant look.

Alternatively, if you prefer sterling silver, reach for these Montblanc rectangular cufflinks from the Contemporary Collection. Decorated with two strips of black mother-of-pearl, these modern cufflinks bring some serious style to the table.

Fine Writing Instruments for Him

Whether it’s for signing essential documents, jotting down important notes, or penning a personal handwritten letter, every gentleman should own a fine writing instrument.

To really get the ink flowing, nothing beats the pleasure of writing with a traditional fountain pen. The navy blue Montegrappa Desiderio fountain pen features pearlized bi-color resin along with an 18k white gold nib and silver trim. An elegant and meaningful gift indeed.

For a sleek and contemporary writing instrument, the S.T. Dupont Défi ballpoint pen in gunmetal promises a flawless writing experience. Equipped with a patented ink gel and high-performance materials, this is a pen that’s both practical and stylish.

Luxury Watches For Her

Few gifts are as special as a luxury women’s watch. Along with being a super practical accessory, they’re also beautiful to wear. Take for example the Dior VIII. A statement watch through and through, the ladies’ Dior VIII watch sports a generous 38mm case, distinct pyramid-shaped accents on the bezel and bracelet, and is fashioned almost entirely in high-tech black ceramic. Plus, we love that it runs on an automatic mechanical movement rather than a quartz one.

For a classic style, there’s the Cartier Mini Baignoire. Named after the French word for “bathtub”, this women’s Cartier Mini Baignoire dons a unique 18k yellow gold oval case presented on an elegant black leather strap. The crisp white dial includes the signature Cartier Roman numerals along with the duo of blue sword-shaped hands. Furthermore, like most Cartier timepieces, there’s the blue cabochon-cut sapphire adorning the winding crown.

W1506056_a

Part jewelry, part watch, the 18k white gold Omega De Ville Ladymatic flaunts a flurry of diamonds. Complementing the precious diamond bezel is the ring of diamond hour markers on the rich purple dial, interrupted only by the discreet date window. Flip the ladies’ Omega Ladymatic timepiece around for a view of the automatic movement working within.

Designer Jewelry For Her

Opting for fine jewelry as a gift is always a safe bet and designer jewels are even better. Talisman style jewelry is all the rage this season and the 24k yellow gold and sapphire GURHAN necklace is an opulent way to wear the trend with its teardrop shape and dangling tassels. Pair it with the matching GURHAN 24k yellow gold and sapphire bracelet with seven multi-cut gems and you’ll have a jewelry set she’ll never forget.

If pink gold is more her pace, then take a look at the stylish Roberto Coin 18k rose gold and white quartz necklace, elegantly studded with a single petite diamond. While the necklace is certainly striking on its own, it’ll look even better worn with the matching Roberto Coin 18k rose gold and white quartz earrings! Of course, like all Roberto coin jewelry, these jewels also include the signature hidden ruby.

The combination of white gold and diamonds is always an alluring one and the shield-like Bvlgari Concentrica ring design is an impressive way to wear them. The concentric ring includes two rows of pavé diamonds encircling the famous double Bulgari logo engraving. For even more white gold and diamonds, there’s the matching pair of Bvlgari Bvlgari drop earrings, also featuring diamond pavé and a logo engraving.

All Treats No Tricks: Dress Up Your Wrist This Halloween

Halloween is around the corner and to celebrate we’ve picked out some watches that get into the spirit of the occasion. From black and orange timepieces to skeleton watches, here’s our roundup of treats—no tricks.

Tudor Heritage Chronograph

70330n_95740_000_a

To create the contemporary Tudor Heritage Chrono, the brand dug into their archives and drew inspiration from their vintage 1970s chronographs. This sporty timepiece illustrates what Tudor does so well—high performance and robust watches that are expertly designed, yet priced sensibly. Housed within the 42mm stainless steel case is a dial heavy with black and orange accents. There’s even an extra black and orange NATO-style strap that really gets into Halloween’s colorway.

Romain Jerome Steampunk

RJTAUSP00505_a-1

As its name suggests, the Romain Jerome Steampunk Automatic is heavy with industrial machinery details such as pistons and bolts featured prominently on the dial. There’s even a propeller-shaped running seconds subdial at 9 o’clock bringing home the heavy machinery style. From the oversized VI and XII Roman numerals to the rubber on the crown to the stitching on the leather strap, the orange details on the predominately black watch are bold. This black and orange beast of a watch measures a gargantuan 50mm—not for the faint of heart. And even more fitting into the Halloween theme is the slight skeletonization on the dial, offering mere glances of the automatic mechanical movement within.

Graham Silverstone RS Skeleton

GR2VWDC01_a

While it’s classified as a skeleton watch, there’s nothing bare bones about the Graham Silverstone RS Skeleton timepiece. The semi-skeletonized dial gives a view of the escapement, balance wheel, and gears, while the remaining solid parts of the dial gives a backdrop for the indexes and other components on the face of the watch. Sitting on top of the 48mm DLC coated stainless steel case is a black ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale to use in conjunction with the rose gold chrono pushers. Adding even more luxury to the sporty chrono is the rose gold ring boasting the elaborate “Clou de Paris” decoration running along the sides of the watch case.

DeWitt Academia Mirabilis

AC.MI_.003_a

Continuing on the skeleton theme is the DeWitt Academia Mirabilis with a partially open-worked dial to allow onlookers to see the intricate automatic mechanical movement in action. As an haute horology manufacture, DeWitt produces in-house movements including the DeWitt Caliber DW0090 with a 48-hour power reserve powering this timepiece. Also on the dial are the mix of Roman numeral and stick indexes on the right side, as well as skeletonized hour and minute hands. On the rose gold and titanium 44mm case is the bezel featuring 24 sculpted imperial columns—a signature detail of the Mirabilis collection.

Whether you decide to go the more obvious route with a black and orange watch or more esoteric with a skeletonized timepiece, dressing up your wrist for Halloween is a fun way to get into the spirit of the spooky night.





Four Mechanical Pilot Watches At Different Price Points

Along with diving watches, pilot watches are some of the most coveted tool timepieces that were built for a specific purpose. While pilots today rely on cutting-edge computers to navigate and calculate, that doesn’t take away from the appeal of a fine aviation-inspired watch. Ranging from less than $1,000 to just under $9,000, here are some of our favorite mechanical pilot watches to sport right now.

Cartier Santos Dumont

When discussing pilot watches, it’s only fair to open with the one that started it all—the Cartier Santos. At the request of aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont, Louis Cartier set out to design a timepiece that would allow the pilot to simultaneously keep his hands on the controls while also tracking flight times. Built to be worn on the wrist rather than in one’s pocket as was traditional during the era, the Cartier Santos wristwatch was born in 1904 as the world’s first pilot’s watch.

Over a century later, Cartier continues to manufacture the highly popular Santos timepieces in a range of styles, materials, and sizes. This 18k white gold Cartier Santos Dumont watch is as classic as it gets with its manual-wind movement, iconic square dial and bezel, Roman numerals, sword-shaped hands, and black leather strap.

Breitling Navitimer

Making its debut in 1952, the Breitling Navitimer featured a slide rule bezel to permit pilots to execute complex navigational calculations when flying. Throughout its long history, there have been many different versions of the Navitimer, including manual, automatic, and even quartz models, yet they all retained the characteristic slide rule bezel.

To mark the 125th anniversary of Breitling in 2009, the company launched the special limited edition Breitling Navitimer 125 Anniversary Chronograph with a 43mm case, the Air Racer bracelet, and the automatic Caliber B26 movement. Available in either steel or rose gold, the steel version seen here is limited to only 2009 pieces.

Bell & Ross Turn Coordinator

Adhering to four design principles—legibility, functionality, reliability, and precision—Bell & Ross watches rely heavily on vintage and modern aviation instrument aesthetics. It’s safe to say that most Bell & Ross watches would look completely at home sitting on an airplane dashboard.

Case in point is the Bell & Ross BR 01-92 Turn Coordinator timepiece, which clearly draws inspiration from the turn coordinator found in aircraft cockpits. The time on the BR 01-92 is indicated via three concentric discs where the outer disc displays the hours, the middle disc indicates the minutes, and the center dial disc has the running seconds. Housing the distinct dial is a 46mm stainless steel square case with a matte black PVD finish and the model is limited to only 999 units.

Alpina Startimer Pilot Automatic

With a history that dates back to 1883, Alpina has had plenty of experience building pilot watches. In fact, in the 1920s, Alpina began supplying time instruments to military pilots. And it’s precisely these vintage Alpina military aviation timepieces that serve as inspiration for the contemporary Alpina Startimer Pilot collection.

This particular Alpina Startimer Pilot Automatic—limited to 8888 pieces—sports a 44mm stainless steel case, an oversized crown, and a black dial with large Arabic numerals, as well as a date subdial at 6 o’clock. Especially appealing is the in-house Caliber AL-710 powering the watch, which can be admired via the transparent caseback.

Whether you decide on a dressier version like the Santos, a technical model like the Navitimer, or a vintage tribute like the Startimer, there’s an abundant choice of pilot watch styles to suit a range of tastes and budgets.





Made in Germany: Glashütte Original

In honor of Oktoberfest, we say cheers to German watchmaking! While Swiss-made luxury watches are typically the most popular and coveted, high-end German timepieces are fantastic too. Case in point is German watch brand, Glashütte Original. Hailing from the town of Glashütte—the heart of German watchmaking—Glashütte Original not only makes some of the most beautiful timepieces, but they’re all powered by in-house movements too. Let’s have a closer look at some of the company’s signature luxury watches.

Glashütte Original Senator Chronometer Regulator

15804040404_a

The Senator collection is where Glashütte Original honors traditional watchmaking design and techniques. Take for example this Senator Chronometer Regulator timepiece, which is a modern tribute to the classic regulator watches of yesteryear.

Characteristic of a regulator watch, the 42mm 18k white gold Senator Chronometer Regulator houses the hour hand and the minute hand separate from each other. The hour hand sits on a subdial at 12 o’clock along with a day/night indicator, while the minutes are read via the center hand. Furthermore, there’s the small seconds register at 6 o’clock, oversized date at 3 o’clock, and power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock.

The Senator Chronometer Regulator runs on the in-house Caliber 58-04 automatic movement with just under 45 hours of power reserve. Like all Glashütte Original movements, the Caliber 58-04 features the beautifully decorated Glashütte three-quarter plate, which can be admired through the transparent caseback.

Glashütte Original PanoMaticLuna

19002453505_a

The Glashütte Original Pano line of watches celebrates contemporary German watchmaking typified by asymmetrical dials and modern technical executions. And the 40mm Glashütte Original PanoMaticLunar in 18k rose gold is a glorious interpretation of that philosophy.

To the left of the dial we see a pair of overlapping subsidiary dials where the top indicates the hours and minutes while the bottom has the running seconds. Moving to the top right corner of the dial, the aperture mimicking the shape of the moon displays the moon phase against a starry night. Finally, on the bottom left lies the oversized date window. Although everything sits off-centered, the face of the Glashütte Original PanoMaticLuna maintains balance and is a joy to look at.

Driving the PanoMaticLuna timepiece is the in-house Caliber 90-02 self-winding movement with about 42 hours of power reserve. Again, the intricately finished movement equipped with 58 jewels is on display thanks to the exhibition caseback.

Glashütte Original Sixties Square Chronograph

W13934033204_a-1

Along with their fine dress watches, Glashütte Original also boasts some funkier watches within their Vintage collection inspired by the design trends of the sixties and seventies. For instance, the Glashütte Original Sixties Square Chronograph is a great retro take on a chronograph.

As an era that enjoyed geometric forms, squared cushion shaped cases were very popular in the 1960s. The modern 42mm stainless steel Sixties Square Chronograph from Glashütte Original takes that vintage inspired silhouette and equips it with a chronograph function. The pair of pushers flanking the winding crown is used to start, stop, and reset the chronograph function.

On the dial, we see a duo of registers at 3 and 9 o’clock, indicating the running seconds and 30-minute counter, respectively. Also on the dial are unique styled numerals at 6 and 12 along with skeletonized center hands.

Flip the watch around for a view of the Caliber 39-34 automatic chronograph movement beating within, complete with the gold double-G logo on the rotor.

Whether this is your first foray into Germany watchmaking or you’re well versed in the field, Glashütte Original timepieces are a great example of precise German engineering coupled with well-balanced and attractive aesthetics.
