This week we throw the spotlight on some special and limited editions, including partnerships between Formex, Worn & Wound, VERO, G-Shock, and even Warner Brothers! The watches range from hardcore mechanical sport watches to playful digital timepieces. We haven’t forgotten about gear either: the RIV from Giant Mouse is a huge EDC upgrade. This is this week’s Roundup; enjoy!

Treat Yourself: Formex x Worn & Wound Essence Sector

New meets old with the Essence Sector 39 from Formex and Worn & Wound. This all-purpose sport watch combines old-school appeal with thoroughly modern design and construction methods. One such example is a patented shock protection system that involves suspending the central watch head with springs. The Essence 39’s industrial aesthetic is paired with appealing dimensions: 39mm wide, 45mm long, and only 10mm thick. A chronometer-grade movement and 100m of water resistance bring peace of mind and round out what is a stunning everyday watch.

Value-Packed Pick: VERO x ADPT Workhorse Limited Edition

Summer colors are here to stay with the VERO x ADPT Workhorse. This limited edition watch combines aqua, white, fuschia, and yellow, to create the ultimate fun riviera watch. Oversized pushers on the case make for a charmingly practical watch, one that doesn’t take itself too seriously yet is quietly robust. Inside beats a reliable Miyota quartz chronograph movement that beats at ¼ seconds for a smoother sweep. And with 120m of water resistance, this is not merely a workhorse solely by name. When it comes to smiles, this is maximum value.

Upgrade Your Kit: Giant Mouse RIV

The best gear doesn’t need to explain itself or make complicated things that ought to be simple. Such is the case with the RIV from Giant Mouse. It’s titanium, has a M390 “Super Steel” blade, comes with a wire clip, and is just designed to be the easy choice for a premium pocket knife for all of life’s circumstances. Grab it, go, and never look back.

When You Have Too Many Watches: ADPT Single-Pass Straps

The singular watch accessory you can never have too many of is the single-pass NATO. Evergreen in its practicality, affordability, and utility, the nylon strap – especially ones made right here in the USA by ADPT – is a stalwart of watch customization and styling. Benefits of the single-pass strap include a thinner profile and more straightforward design that will make it a great partner for any watch. Available in myriad colors and sizes, the ADPT single-pass strap is the panacea for having too many watches.

Deal of the Week: G-Shock Tweety Collaboration

This may be the crossover event no one really saw coming: Casio G-Shock and Tweety Bird. But it’s here, and we love it. Part of the Baby-G collection, the Tweety Collaboration BGD-565 combines a subtle and beautiful color combination with playful references to the world’s most famous yellow canary. Tweety’s likeness can be found on the digital display’s edge, on the strap, the caseback – and even a special surprise when the illuminating LED light is activated on the dial.
