You’ve got your winter sweaters, coats, and accessories. Cold weather calls for a variety of toasty accents that keep you warm throughout the season. Where would you be without your wool scarf and reliable gloves? But beyond knit materials, stylish watches also set the tone for a more polished season. You always need a trusty timepiece, after all. In these eye-catching accents, you’ll always have a dependable companion. And, in the true tradition of most 21st-century innovations, these watches are anything but basic. Here are seven styles we’re eyeing for winter.
Shinola Detroit The Runwell
Durability is the cornerstone of everything that comes from the house of Shinola. The label is firmly committed to producing only the highest quality pieces, whether it’s a clock or a bike. The Runwell watch is no exception. Highly resilient, it offers subtle sophistication that elevates any outfit in an instant. Its quartz movement is handmade in Detroit, while a sandblasted case features a domed sapphire crystal championed for its strength and resilience. The contrast between the matte black dial and the handsome whiskey leather lends the watch a timeless look.
Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight Bronze
The stunning Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight Bronze is fitted with a shaded matte brown dial with a matching brown anodized-aluminum bezel. Under the warm brown dial and bezel, which retains the “Explorer-style” 3, 6, and 9 numerals of the original Black Bay Bronze, is Tudor’s automatic MT5400, which comes with 70 hours of power reserve and is chronometer-certified by COSC. Tudor’s signature snowflake hands are filled with Super-LumiNova. The Bronze comes with a complimentary fabric strap in a bronze/brown color to match the dial, which is ombre, shaded concentrically from the center to the outer edge. The perfect addition to any winter outfit.
Hamilton Khaki Field Auto Chrono
For the watch enthusiast who appreciates a touch of avant-garde style, the Hamilton Khaki Field Auto Chrono makes a phenomenal choice. It’s as rugged as it is stylish, and as fashionable as it is precise. It’s that type of versatility and promise that makes it worthy of a place on your arm — whether you go on regular expeditions or have less adventurous plans in mind. Designed in honor of the brand’s storied military history, the watch features a beautiful leather bund strap. It’s just right for anyone who spends considerable time outside.
Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio
You’ve likely not met quality until you’ve stumbled across a Swiss watch — in particular a Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio. This masterfully crafted watch is rooted in perfection. It’s designed with foolproof titanium, known for both its resilience and light weight. It resists corrosion and exudes a glossy, faintly blue tint that lends the watch its distinctive appeal. Finished in satin and featuring an elegant Venezia leather insert, this dynamic watch bears a “Swiss Made” inscription that sets it apart from the rest.
Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT
It’s difficult to misinterpret the intention behind the Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT. This is a watch of true distinction. It doesn’t presume to be anything other than itself — which means it’s no ordinary timepiece. Instead, it’s finely crafted to reflect a fresh, modern silhouette with slightly rounded edges. Inspired by professional tools, this watch is at once elegant and rugged. It’s what Bell & Ross coined the watch of the “urban explorer,” and it’s a fitting application for a watch as adventurous as this.
As classic as a watch gets, the Longines Spirit makes a wonderful holiday gift to yourself or a loved one. Made with the exquisite attention to detail you expect of a Swiss watch brand that’s been at it since the early 19th century, the timepiece is made with heavy-duty titanium and is water resistant to 10 bar, or a little over 300 feet. Marvel at the richness of the dramatic anthracite dial and the contrasting effect of the distinctive numerals against the darkness. This timeless watch promises to be with you for a lifetime.
Chopard Mille Miglia x Bamford Watch Department
At once sporty and stylish, the Chopard Mille Miglia x Bamford Watch Department exemplifies the best of two worlds. The stunning design is part of the highly celebrated Mille Miglia collection dating from 1998. An eye-catching timepiece featuring pops of flame orange against a dark grey backdrop, this striking piece features a mechanical chronograph with automatic winding. The sapphire crystal is glare proof for practical wear outside, while the case-back crystal tinted in black features the 1000 Miglia logo coupled with “Bamford Limited Edition.”
