Timeless Time Pieces for Him

JAMES AGUIAR | February 8, 2018 | Style & Beauty

The zeitgeist of the latest timepieces for men from top watchmakers invokes a return to classicism: sophisticated wrist instruments that will stand the test of time to become handed-down heirlooms. But don’t call the trend retro—these watches incorporate movements, materials and masterful design cues that are not only cutting edge, but also give birth to a new generation of precision accessories that will always be appropriate and right on time.
