Sinn U50-T Fully Tegimented on Bracelet

Oh my gosh – a watch that embodies the person I hope I would like to be (did that come out right?). The little brother of Sinn’s U-1 dive watch that’s both all business, but also has a non-traditional, almost playful look (though “playful” might be pushing things. I love that it’s made from anti-magnetic U-Boat steel, and that the whole thing, including the bracelet, is hardened. It’s not cheap, that’s for sure, but it packs a lot into a compact package (again, which applies to the self I aspire to be) and it’s practically bombproof. This is the sort of watch that outlasts you, and that some lucky SOB snatches up when you finally kick off at some point. It’s a watch you’d probably have to lkeep separate from every other watch in your collection, because the sheer force of its personality would intimidate everything short of a Rolex – which really should be intimidated, but that’s another story.

Bangalore Watch Company – Horizon

First off, it’s just flat out beautiful. And at a perfect size for my smedium wrist, and in titanium … Then there’s the circular date window – a great touch that too few watches have (I never got the square date window – I mean, the watch is round and a round date just flows so much better). I also love that it has an internal GMT bezel, so if Kimberly is in, I don’t know, Katmandu, I can look down and instantly know what time it is there.  Also I love the name of the company – something about the word Bangalore feels cool and mysterious to me.
