Watches

French luxury line Hermès, inspired by the lacquering techniques of the ancient Orient and the style of Persian miniature horses, apply the intricate modern French lacquering process to these limited edition watches. First miniature pieces are applied to the base of the Arceau Cheval d’Oriente watches, then the pigments lacquered in, layer by layer with [...]


Bell & Ross watchmakers have been on the vintage kick here and there for a time-kept minute now. Unsurprisingly they have added two new models to their vintage BR line, a line developed in admiration of advances in aviation in the era of the second world war. The BR 126 (shown right) , which is a special edition [...]


Shinola, the rare Detroit watchmaker, is founded upon the principle of quality American-made goods.

Get your game on [...]

A limited edition California-born collaboration

Watches inspired by heroes in fashion, sports and pop culture are really nothing new at Meister — as we saw with the MSTR x Brandon Jennings Rose Gold Ambassador watch — but this particular collaboration with B:Scott may be worth noting. Both come by way of Cali, and both brands are inspired by Japanese and German aesthetics. If you’re not familiar [...]

The first Allied pilot [...]
