Rugged winter style is characterized by classic designs made from sturdy materials like wool and leather. It’s about layering functional pieces of clothing to stay warm and take on flurries of snow and biting wind. Cold-weather garments are built to last to for years; they were designed for men in the elements, loggers, pilots, hunters. So bolster your winter wardrobe with some of these timeless garments, starting with our picks below.

Oris Big Crown ProPilot Day Date

Since Oris first launched its “Big Crown” pilot’s watch in 1938, the company has continued a nearly 80-year history of making practical mechanical watches. The first were designed so that pilots could easily wind their watches while flying with thick gloves on; those original watches — with big crowns — have brought rise to an entire aviation-inspired line. The Big Crown ProPilot Day Date is no different, employing a simple dial with large Arabic numerals coated in SuperLuminova, a sapphire crystal, a 45mm stainless steel case and a screw-in crown, making the watch good for 100 meters of water resistance. Ticking away inside is an automatic winding movement based on a Sellita SW220-1 with a day and date complication and finished with Oris’s signature red rotor. It’s everything you’d want in a reliable, everyday timepiece.
