Longines’ Spirit Collection is composed of handsome and evocative vintage-styled timepieces, and the brand adds a new Flyback Chronograph to the mix. Tapping into its flyback complication past from as far back as the 1920s, the new watch gets a modern L791.4 movement which delivers 68 hours of reserve, a silicon balance spring, and a bona fide COSC certification. The stainless steel case measures 42mm in diameter and 17mm in thickness, so it has ample wrist presence. Traditional Arabic numbers and bicompax dials are easy to read, and the pushers and crown are set accordingly. It comes in two dial and matching bezel colors, blue and black, and you can choose matching straps or a three-link solid 316L stainless steel bracelet to match the case.


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.
