In 1964, the US Army needed watches that fit the following specification. “Plastic-cased wrist watch intended for use where a high degree of accuracy is not required.” They were also intent on not maintenancing them in the military supply system. The Army wanted a cheap, disposable plastic watch that could be deployed by the thousands to troops. They probably never intended for them to end up desirable, but like everything else vintage they have. Kind of. MWC took the design skeleton of that original watch and updated it with 316L stainless and an accurate Quartz movement. What they didn’t do was screw with the sleek, simple design of the original. It’s old school meets new technology.

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
