With a new season almost upon us it’s time for a change. If you’re looking to update your wrist, these cool time pieces are top of our list. They might even inspire a whole new wardrobe.
Graham’s Silverstone RS Racing
Dedicated to speed, this new trio of watches from Graham celebrate the brand’s affinity to motor racing and one of the most famous circuits of all, Silverstone in the UK. With racing coloured dials and tyre tread wrist straps and a tachometer to measure lap time , you’ll feel the need for speed with one of these.
Wear with: Keep things weekend casual. Smart shorts and a polo T-shirt.
Montblanc’s E strap
Not technically a watch in its own right, the new Estrap from Montblanc will turn any of its watches into wearable tech by working with your phone to bring you alerts, updates and data via the strap itself. This could be revolutionary, and you still get to wear a luxury watch.
Wear with: Smart suit and tie for the office.
Chopard’s Mille Miglia GTS Chono
Chopard has gone back to its flagship watch range and created a GTS version, inspired by classic cars and the long association the brand has with racing them. Dedicated to Italy’s most famous car race and the vintage heyday of the 50s, this sleek, masculine number puts you in the driving seat.
Wear with: Take this baby for a spin with a casual shirt, dark jeans and a fast car.
And for when you don’t want to show off, this subtle number from Piaget is the thinnest hand wound mechanical watch in the world. It comes in white or pink gold, but either captures a classic European elegance. For when less is more.
Wear with: Linen suit and pastel coloured shirt for a less weighty travel look.
Breitling Transocean Untime Pilot
More than a watch, this is a serious bit of kit, for those needing to keep track of events round the world. Coming in steel and or gold, the Untime Pilot simultaneously tells the time in multiple locations, resets itself when crossing timezones and will appeal to any aviators or adventurers. A rugged statement.
Wear with: A vintage T-shirt, blue jeans and Converse for a relaxed vibe.
