Zodiac Grand Rally $495 - $595 - These bold racing chronographs are near identical to watches from the 70’s, with big barrel cases and contrasting sub-dials. High-quality finishing and applied markers make these not your everyday quartz chrono.

Watches $500 - $1000

Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical Black PVD $545 - The newest version of the Khaki Field, it might also be the coolest. The mix of vintage field watch design with a modern, black PVD case makes for a very sharp and stylish watch.

DuFa Günter $570 - The DuFa Günter is an affordable take on the integrated bracelet steel sports watch. Channeling the iconic watches of the 70’s the Günter mixes hardlines and facets with the spirits of brutalism and minimalism. The result is a series of handsome, masculine watches that wear exceptionally well.

Hamilton Pilot Pioneer $845 - $895 - Following in the footsteps of the Khaki Field, the Pilot Pioneer is another faithful recreation of an iconic military watch once manufactured by Hamilton.

The Windup edition is decked out in matte gray with case and dial that match for a unique look and bright blue markers for great legibility. These are almost gone for good.

Junghans Max Bill Automatic $995 - $1,195 - If something’s great, why change it? Junghans Max Bill watches are nearly identical to their 60’s forefathers and for good reason - they are perfect. Bauhaus teachings meet mid-century style in elegant, easy to wear wristwatches.

Damasko DS 30 Yellow $963 - The DS 30 is the definition of a sleeper watch. Understated and purposeful in appearance, it’s made out of hardened submarine steel, and packed with other techs for increased durability. Throw in 200m of water resistance and this watch is pretty much unstoppable.

Watches $1000 - $2000

Yema Superman $1,099 - Another iconic dive watch reborn, the Yema Superman is fun, stylish and unique timepiece. A true 1:1 replica of the original, the 39mm case features a unique bezel-locking mechanism that gives the Superman its signature look.

Vero x Windup Watch Shop “Peak” and “Granite” LEs $1,120 - Twofer! This duo of field watches feature 38mm titanium cases made in Vero’s Portland, Oregon workshop. The Peak is elegant and refined with a bright palette and heat-blued hands. The Granite is rustic and earthy with a dark, matte palette and uniquely oxidized case. Both are great everyday wears.

Zodiac Super Sea Wolf “Watermelon” $1,395 - Based on a dive watch from 1953, the recreated Super Sea Wolf has quickly become a popular dive watch thanks to its provenance and approachable price.

Damasko DC 56 $1,860 - Featuring an ice-hardened German-made steel case that is highly scratch-resistant, inner anti-magnetic cage to protect the move, patented crown and pusher systems, and a modified Valjoux 7750 movement, the DC 56 is one of the toughest and best-priced pilot’s chronographs out there.

Watches $2,000

Yema Flygraf $2,049 - An exotic take on the pilot’s chronograph, the Flygraf is a replica of a Yema design from the 70’s down to the text on the dial. Understated yet aggressive in appearance, the Flygraf has a unique plate on the dial that creates the effect of having four sub-dials.

Hamilton Intra-matic Chrono $2,195 - Everyone loves a Panda Chrono and the Hamilton Intra-matic, with its 40mm case, black tachymeter and six o’clock date is one of the nicest. Based on a late 60’s design, the Intra-matic is a modern take on an iconic watch with a bold, masculine appearance. 

Zodiac x Andy Mann Super Sea Wolf 68 LE $2,295 - Created in collaboration with National Geographic photographer, diver and conservationist Andy Mann, this highly limited version of the Sea Wolf 68 features several unique design details. Most notably is the dial gradient, which simulates how light breaks through shallow water and the shark dorsal fin at 12, speaking to Andy’s work.

Junghans Meister Telemeter $2,295 - Dress chronos are hard to come by, and this is a prime example. Styled after watches from the 30’s the Meister Telemeter is elegantly finished and features one of the most captivating dials you’ll see. Great for those who like vintage but want more of a modern presence.

Vortic Springfield $2,495 - Wearing a Vortic is like wearing a piece of American history. With a dial and movement salvaged from nearly 100 year-old Illinois pocket watches, you have a true artifact on your wrist.
