New Arrivals: Men’s Watches

TIME FOR MEN

If time is the ultimate luxury, a watch might just follow close behind. It may not be essential,
but it’s functional and expresses a sense of personal flair all at once—especially for men, who have
fewer accessory options than the opposite sex. Watches with blue dials, polished throwback styling or
that bridge the gap between office and off-road are most sought after.

RUGGEDLY HANDSOME

➤ A multitasking watch that easily goes from office to the
great outdoors is a solution for someone who might only
own a watch or two. Models featuring leather straps that
can take a hit without being worse for wear and include a
few sporty specs are an easy answer.

NAME THE EARRING STYLE
THAT’S POISED TO BECOME
A MAJOR TREND.

I am seeing interest in a larger chandelier
earring, with lots of movement and layers,
including color. There is also another
trend emerging. I’m not sure it has teeth
yet: the ear climber.

SWEET SIMPLICITY

➤ A well-designed watch
doesn’t require loads
of bells and whistles to
turn heads. Many manufacturers
are revisiting
the straightforward and
functional models from
the first half of the 20th
century for inspiration.

SHINOLA

WHY WE LOVE IT: Built
with a top loading
process that exposes
a wider sweep of
the dial than most
watches, this model
has an expansive
viewing area.

Canfield with 43mm
steel case, quartz
movement and black
alligator strap

MSRP: $900

contemporary standards for certification
as an Automatic Chronometer but
its style is reminiscent of antique pocket
watches.

automatic movement, white enamel dial
and crocodile strap

the pilot watches of the 1940s,
it has a dapper, understated
profile that can transition easily
to the most formal occasions.

case, automatic chronometer,
38-hour power reserve and
calfskin leather strap

THE BLUE PERIOD

➤ In the fairly conservative
world of men’s watchmaking
color usually isn’t a prominent
feature, but blue has
become a breakout favorite
as of late. The universally
popular hue makes appearances
in tones from cerulean
to navy and lots in between.



 

RADO

WHY WE LOVE IT: The minimalist
design might look
delicate, but it’s made from
a hard-wearing ceramic
that will retain a gleaming
shine.

case, quartz movement,
sunbrushed dial with rhodium-
colored applied indexes
and NATO strap

color to the dial and bezel puts a fresh,
youthful spin on a classic power watch.

with two-tone gold and silver ion-plated
finish, quartz movement, luminous
hands and markers and calendar

MSRP: $499

REACTOR

WHY WE LOVE IT: There’s no reason to
worry about anyone
else having an identical
watch. The iridescent
ionized finish
looks slightly different
every time it’s applied.

Ionized in stainless
steel with 45mm case,
quartz movement,
10-year lithium power
cell and anti-reflective
coating on crystal

MSRP: $500

rich blue is subtle
and neutral and gives
warmth to the design’s
architectural contours.

and polished stainless
steel case, quartz movement,
blue galvanic dial
and applied indexes and
date display

MSRP: $1,700

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
