Treat Yourself: New Zodiac GMT

The new Zodiac GMT is a true treat: now available in two fresh flavors, the Super Sea Wolf GMT has taken a winning formula and improved upon it. A new fuschia and white bezel is now paired with a black dial (and matching pinkish GMT hand), while the black and gray bezel variant comes with the silver dial and red GMT hand. Notably, the bezels now feature 24-click bidirectional mechanisms. The watches also sport subtle updates to the case, including a new brushed finishing on the lugs. On the inside is a new movement, the STP 7-20. It offers an independently set 24-hour hand, hand-winding, and 40 hours of power reserve.

Value-Packed Pick: New Citizen Tsuyosa Small Seconds

The new Citizen Tsuyosa watches take a successful first generation product and add even more detail, quality, and value. The new Tsuyosa models come with textured dials, new movements, and a new construction. The new small seconds format is a slightly dressier and more unique look for the sport watch, and Citizen has made the straps and bracelets interchangeable for this new series of Tsuyosa watches. At under $600, they remain fantastic value propositions and solid watches in their own right.

Deal of the Week: Benrus Orbit Robot

Our Deal of the Week is a charming watch that you won’t see every day. The Benrus Orbit Robot is, by any measure, a vintage reissue done right. Based on a beloved reference from 1972, the new Orbit Robot is simply stunning with its fumé dial, bright orange hands, and faithful UFO-shaped stainless steel case. Benrus has struck the balance of staying true to the original design while bringing the product into contemporary specifications and tastes. Notable upgrades include a reliable automatic movement, 200 meters of water resistance, and a particularly playful image on the caseback – take a look!
