T1.1 Watch

Besides reliability — and by this we mean lifespan and required maintenance, not timekeeping accuracy — a timepiece’s most important assets are its looks. LTHR Supply’s T1.1 Watch strikes an intriguing balance between complex and functional; that is, despite the concentric circles of numbers surrounding its face, interpreting time is as easy as reading the three outlined within the time window on the left. Inside, a Swiss Ronda 763 quartz movement keeps it ticking away for years on one battery and on the outside its 40mm stainless steel case — available in a variety of colors — is capped with a sapphire crystal lens. Adding to customizability are several leather straps and the choice of either a black or white dial.

EMC Time Hunter X-Ray

Urwerk’s EMC Time Hunter X-Ray isn’t just mechanical or electronic — it’s a fusion of both as two separate entities. This unique timepiece is the world’s first wristwatch that enables the wearer to monitor both precision (chronometric performance) and amplitude (movement) of the watch on the fly using a crank-powered electronic system. The watch’s mechanical innards can then be fine-tuned to keep perfect time by compensating for each owner’s unique lifestyle rather than by being set by some standard environment at the watchmaker’s atelier. A black-coated titanium case coupled to anti-reflective sapphire crystal keeps the dial and movement secure while allowing the user to see exactly how their watch works from both sides, whether they understand it or not. A Urwerk-developed movement with swiss lever escapement and a linear balance wheel coupled to the optical sensor ensures precise that’s made more precise by the user’s adjustment. The manual wind EMC Time Hunter has an 80 hour power reserve for those times when you just don’t want to take the watch off. Also available in a standard Time Hunter version sans X-Ray transparency, and in Ceramic.

Tanner x Rancourt Court Classic Low

Sometimes, you come across a pair of sneakers so well-made and so rare they’re begging to be snatched up. Such is the case with the Tanner Goods Court Classic Low, a new American-made sneaker produced in conjunction with the legendary footwear purveyors at Rancourt & Co. The sneaker is all class and heritage blended into one stylish package, featuring rich Natural Essex Horween leather and Vibram Honey Strighton sole. The Vibram sole in particular also made an appearance on the Court Classic Mid as put together by Tanner Goods & Rancourt, and the Court Classic Low is just the latest stunning iteration in the partnership. If ever there was the perfect fall sneaker, the Court Classic Low might just be it — it’s a casual option to pair with dark selvedge denim, and it’ll look just as sharp with wool trousers and a herringbone blazer on the first chilly day. A mere 80 pairs were made, so you know you’re getting something that’s, as Tanner Goods says, worth holding onto.

The Smokey Bear Watch

Filson uncovered the true origins of Smokey the Bear when designing their limited edition timepiece that bears Smokey’s friendly yet ominous face. In 1923 a fire swept through Yellowstone National Park leaving behind more than just charred trees. The high winds drove the fire fast enough to catch all manner of wildlife in its wake. Among those affected was a bear, later to be known as Smokey. He ran ahead of the fire trying to find safety and by sheer coincidence ran straight into a ranger station and face to face with a smoke-blackened ranger. Little is known about their encounter except the words left scrawled in the dust by the ranger, “Smokey… bear.” Smokey mauled the ranger and stood steely eyed over his broken body. When the fire burned itself out, Smokey remained intent on stopping further such catastrophes — or so we’re to believe. He donned the ranger’s hat and charged him, Milo Anderson, with the task of preventing wildfires. His exact words were, “Only you can prevent forest fires.” It was a threat, not a call to action. That was a lot of responsibility for poor Milo and as the years went on the adage changed to mean the collective “you” and not the singular as Milo originally heard it. Enter Filson’s Smokey the Bear Watch, a limited edition of 1,000 package, complete with an individually numbered watch and collection of Smokey goodness. Included is a book that tells the story of Smokey Bear* (*may vary slightly from the representation above), a certificate of authenticity and six postcards of reimagined vintage Smokey posters. The watch features a 43mm stainless-steel case, an Argonite 715 quartz movement assembled in Detroit at Shinola’s Watch Factory, and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Plus, flip it around to check out the brass PVD plate imprinted with both Filson’s and Smokey Bear’s logos.

RRL Roughout Suede Watch Strap

Nothing complements a fine timepiece like a bit of contrast. RRL’s Roughout Suede Watch Strap is in a way simultaneously rugged and clean looking, with a nicely cut thin brown calf suede that’s fitted with an antiqued brass buckle and hardware. The 20mm made-in-USA NATO strap also includes two pin buckles to secure your watch, suiting particularly well to narrower vintage models.

Autodromo Stradale Automatic

Unsurprisingly, the Autodromo Stradale Automatic draws inspiration from mid-century Italian sports berlinettas with a white-on-white colorway and clean, easy to read markers. The hour indexes are applied to a transparent glass ring that’s raised above the rest of the face for an intriguing three-dimensional effect, and the minute and hour hands resemble those on a speedometer, with the former colored bright red. Its stainless steel case is complemented by a custom leather strap plus domed sapphire crystal lenses on the front back, the latter allowing for a view of the Miyota 9015 automatic movement powering the timepiece.

Stantt DataFit Polo

Small, medium, and large do the job for a few, but attaining a perfect fit takes tailoring. Or something like Stantt’s DataFit sizing, originally launched with their button downs. It’s now made its way to the polo as well as the t-shirt, providing 75 distinct sizes for each that better accommodate the dimensions of your actual body and not some loose-fitting, “close enough” standard. Finding yours is as easy as submitting three measurements which they’ll then match to a size with their algorithm. Moreover, each of these shirts is made of super soft and durable 100% pima cotton, both pre-shrunk and with a reinforced collar on the polo. And if yours doesn’t fit you perfectly off the bat they’ll switch it until it does at zero additional cost to you.

Squarestreet SQ31 Aluminum Watch

It’s not one bit about pretenses. The Squarestreet SQ31 Aluminum Watch is instead minimal in the most functional way possible. Its slim case is machined of T6061 aircraft grade aluminum and fitted with a completely flush case back and a mineral crystal lens in front that, all together, measure just 8mm in thickness, complementing its stripped down appeal and light weight. Two distinct index tracks aligned with the lengths of the hands essentially spell out the time for you, with every minute indicated individually all around — and while the hours aren’t, with only twelve to choose from we’re pretty sure you’ll get it right at a glance.Powering the timepiece is a dependable quartz Swiss Ronda movement that displays seconds on a small counter at the 6 o’clock position and that’ll run for approximately 42 months straight before needing new batteries.

Prometheus JAAC Pullover Hoodie

Clean and minimal on the outside, Prometheus Design Werx’s JAAC Pullover is as versatile as a lightweight fleece hoodie gets. Its hood boasts a slight sun brim and a shape that’s inspired by the patterning on a baseball for a perfect rounded fit, while the hoodie’s waist is cut a bit longer to avoid riding up if you’re running or biking. It’s equipped with a classic kangaroo pass-through pocket that’s got a small organizer pocket within for securing an ID and credit card, and maybe some cash. It’s also made of Polartec Micro Series fleece with flatlock seams for full comfort and warmth whether worn over a base layer or under a shell.
