The watch brand Defakto has always impressed us with the clean lines, attention to detail and quality construction you’ll find in all of their timepieces. They make watches–like the previously covered Akkord and this new Transit Standard–that are built with all the tenets of a great German sports car. The Transit Standard combines all of the features we’ve come to know, love and expect from the brand, but this time around it’s all part of a more traditional style. In-house, 3-piece stainless case with a brushed finish. Swiss-made ETA 2824-2 automatic movement. German-made cowhide strap. Domed, anti-reflective sapphire crystal that protects the matte black dial and the manually-shaped, rounded hands underneath. It’s a gorgeous watch that would look great paired with anything from jeans and a tee to full penguin suit. But if we’re being completely honest, it really shines in the dark. Literally. It was covered with two types of Superluminova in Switzerland so that the hours and minutes hands shine a bright blue and the second hand shines a contrasting red. It’s basically a high-end automobile clock you can wear on your wrist.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
