Andrew Perez of ASTOR+BANKS has just created a timepiece for those who may not want to worry about owning more than one watch. The new Sea Ranger strikes the right balance between dress and sport in a military-style watch that’s made with the right stuff including Swiss automatic movement, a beautifully crafted dial with a 24-hour dial inset, 300-meter water resistance, and a solid stainless steel bracelet with links designed for optimal comfort. And unlike most boutique watch brands, the Sea Ranger is designed and assembled in Chicago, and it’s unabashedly engraved on the caseback. The 40mm diameter means it’s perfectly sized for everyday wear, and the three dial and two case color provide great style options. The pre-order phase has been sold out, but you can jump in when the Kickstarter campaign starts in June.

We demand a lot from our shirts, which is why we like the shirts that come from Batch. Batch makes shirts that are durable, stylish, and well-built (by hand!)–without the hefty price tag. Case in point: Batch’s Specialist Utility Shirt. Equal parts rugged yet refined and stylish yet durable, this shirt expertly balances simplicity, detail and function with its Giza cotton construction, oversized chest pockets with side expansion and spread collar. Those same details make it great with jeans or worn open over your favorite tee. Dress better with Batch.
