Citizen’s latest watches combine 1970s style with a modern solar-powered movement that offers 1 year of power on a full charge, effectively doubling their standard Eco-Drive battery life. The movement is also accurate to +/- 15 seconds per month for tremendously good timekeeping. The angular 42.5mm cases look like nothing else offered today, and the special dials show off starry night skies that have stunning visual depth. The three colorways include steel with gold accentuated with four lab-grown ruby markers, a black ion-plated version, and one that combines a steel case with a black bezel. The steel and gold is a limited edition, and the other two are regular production models. For the price, they offer unparalleled retro style and a totally no-nonsense movement that will never let you down.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
