Timex-Intelligent-Quartz-Flyback-Chronograph

Shopping for high end watches is a like shopping for high end cars. Most of the time, if you have to ask how much it costs it’s too expensive. Bargains are great, but that usually means trading in bespoke leather for plastic and MoMA design cues for third grade inspiration. But every once in a while a watch comes along that makes you check the “all of the above” box on things you want – including price. The new Timex Intelligent Quartz Flyback Chronograph is that watch. The racing inspired timepiece has more dials than your first domestic automobile and has has enough independently powered hands to give you normal time, separate minutes and 24-hour intervals. Through some combination of 150 years of experience and creative mathematics, Timex squeezed all of this into a 43mm black ionic plated case with contrasting leather strap—for less than $200. If you’re only buying one watch this year, this is it.

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.
