Bulova 140th Anniversary Commemorative Edition
This ultraprecise timepiece marks Bulova’s 140th anniversary this year. And according to Michael Gordon, store director at New York City's timepiece mecca, Torneau TimeMachine, it can clock sprinters down to one-thousandth of a second. “These features make it stand out from other watches,” he says.
For this limited run of 1,999 watches, the Khaki X-Wind—the first-ever watch with a drift-angle calculator so pilots can measure and record cross-winds—has been revamped in two sleek colors: a black dial with dark gray subdials, and silver with dark gray subdials. “It’s a more industrial look, which makes it unique,” Gordon says.
Breitling produced only 500 of these black-steel bad boys, named in honor of the acrobatic Breitling Jet team’s 2015 debut. (Catch the ex-military pilots flipping and barrel rolling at 5Gs at breitling-jet-team.com.) Each of the striking black and yellow watches is individually numbered and equipped with a sporty yet handsome rubber strap.
Pro motorcycle racer Nicky “the Kentucky Kid” Hayden is getting the star treatment with this run of 4,999 watches emblazoned with his logo and No. 69 on the case back, as well as elements that tie into his scene, says Gordon—like the star at the dial’s No. 6, the same design you’ll see on Hayden’s Honda.
Starting this month, Shinola will re-release its sleek and popular Runwell model, complete with stainless-steel case and screw-down crown. This latest handsome devil to emerge from the cool, Detroit-based lifestyle brand’s factory comes bearing a new twist: It’s now available in a bold, sophisticated black-on-black design.
If you’ve ever been in an airplane cockpit, you’ll recognize that this ceramic timepiece resembles a snazzy aviation dashboard instrument. Bell & Ross produced only 500 of these watches with a “10” on the 6 (it’s mirrored on the back, too) to pay homage to the Paris-based company’s 10-year anniversary.
