This week we have some exciting new watches to cover, starting with the Tissot PR516 mechanical chronograph. From there we highlight a humorous Timex Seconde Seconde edition (they’re all funny) and a discreet and slick pocket knife from The James Brand. Finally we round things out with a fantastic ADPT t-shirt that you’ll rock all summer long, as well as a casual watch to match: the inimitable WW75. Oh, and stick around at the end for an additional promotion code. This is definitely a Roundup you won’t want to miss. 

Treat Yourself: Tissot PR516

It’s not everyday that a major Swiss brand (re)launches a heritage chronograph – with a mechanical movement to boot, no less. But Tissot has done just that with the Tissot PR516 Mechanical. Based on the beloved 1970s model, the new PR516 is a modern interpretation of the three register chronograph complete with tachymeter bezel and cushion case. It is powered by a new-to-Tissot manually-wound Valjoux movement, features wearable specs, and is peak retro-modern Tissot. All under $2,000? Yeah, this one is here to stay.

 

Value-Packed Pick: Timex LOSER Seconde Seconde 

No matter what time it is, it’s probably safe to say whoever should have treated you better is a l-o-s-e-r. Whether it’s an ex-lover or ex-friend, you can share that message with the whole world – or at least the watch-curious world – in a lighthearted and irreverent way that only Timex and Seconde Seconde can pull off. Cased in the classic 38mm stainless steel Timex Q case and paired with a vintage-styled mesh bracelet, this Timex is a witty wearable piece that lets its personality shine through. Whether you rock it in full stainless or full gold-tone, you’ll find that finger and thumb in the shape of an L on your forehead and find it right on the dial.

 

Upgrade Your Kit: The James Brand Elko

The thing about truly great pocket knives is that they don’t forget to be pocket-friendly. Thankfully the folks at The James Brand have created a low-key knife that doesn’t sacrifice any utility for its discretion. Available in myriad color configurations, The James Brand Elko is 1.7” of sharp Sandvik 12C27 steel and barely over 4” long in total. It even includes a key loop that can double as a pry bar or bottle opener. It’s a mini rig in the best way possible.

 

When You Have Too Many Watches: ADPT T-Shirt

Summer is right around the corner (and depending on where you are, it might already feel like it). That means only one thing: versatile and stylish T-shirts for all of life’s activities. The ADPT Tie Dye T-Shirt makes a strong case with the company’s foray into shirts. Whether you want to signal your enthusiasm for the ADPT brand, the outdoors, or just want some cool-looking apparel to keep you cool, this one’s an easy pick up.

 

Deal of the Week: Timex x Worn & Wound WW75

This Roundup’s deal of the week is none other than the Timex x Worn & Wound WW75. As the encore to last year’s smash success, the new WW75 Limited Edition watches are tasteful variations on the original design. Combine 37mm field watch cases, mid-century color ways, and a comfortable mesh bracelet to get what we’d consider the last word in horological bargains.
