In order to fully appreciate the namesake of this watch we need to know a little more about the man himself, Georges Guynemer. In less than a year after he got accepted to pilot training (he was a mechanic after originally being rejected for service), he became a flying ace (5+ kills) and was promoted to lieutenant. Throughout the next year his score rose to 25, and then he got promoted to captain and commander of the Storks squadron. He was the first Allied pilot to shoot down a German heavy bomber, and downed seven German aircraft in a single month. We’d like to think he’d like the Bell & Ross named after him. It’s inspired by the watches of the period with wire handles, a vintage dial (the red stork is in honor of his squadron), oversized crown and thin leather bracelet. The case is a distressed gunmetal finish measuring 45mm, and the caseback is engraved with a portrait of Guynemer.

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
