You probably already grabbed a look at our Watch Guide in last month’s issue, but just in case you didn’t or if you just need to refresh your memory, here are the top picks of the wrist wear that’ll fit practically any wardrobe.
Eveningwear: Sharpen Up
Orolog OC1 Chronograph
Want to sidestep the classic watch brands? Wear new Spanish designer Jaime Hayon’s limited-edition creation. Using leather from Hermes and a Swiss movement, it’s a Euro hit.

At Your Leisure: Street Style
Square Street Minuteman Two Hand
The glistening black, hand-made Italian acetate bezel and blood-orange strap make a striking combo, even at up to 30 meters underwater.

Action Stations: To the Extreme
Tag Heuer Monaco V4 Tourbillon
With a complex face based on a Formula 1 engine, this hand-assembled V4is driven by precision ball bearings and four belts the thickness of a human hair. No wonder Tag puts all those workings on display.
Approx. $96,000, tagheuer.com
Cutting Edge: Get Technical
Seiko Astron GPS Solar
Built-in GPS allows the Astron to correct itself to all time zones automatically. Its perpetual calendar is correct until 2100 and its dial converts sunlight to pure power.

Off the Wall: The Outer Limits
Greubel Forsey Platinum GMT
A GMT watch displays the hour in dual time zones, but this beast goes further, with a globe that spins in 24-hour cycles, not only lightening up the hour as it moves but also moving a black scale to indicate nightfall.
