Sure, the hands-only minimal look has been done with plain watches, but a chronograph? Typically chronographs have intricate faces heavy on dials, numbers and markings… but there’s nothing typical about the Vestal Sabbath zR3 Chronograph. Free from excess, the Sabbath earns recognition as the most minimalist chronograph ever with a sleek all black stainless steel case and 3-link band.


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.
