Originally made for spelunking, the Rolex Explorer II has grown into a unique sport watch icon.
The year in watches is turning out strong with exciting new releases from brands big and small. Here are our faves thus far.
The most notable new models, updates and sleeper releases for 2021.
The Historique American 1921 references a distinctive, offset dial from the 1920s — and man, does it look good.
One of them even comes with a mechanical watch-setting box. Seriously.
Pistachio, salmon, bright orange, and jungle canopy motifs are the faces of this year's watches.
Two new 39mm hand-wound models and a wild perpetual calendar join the famous dress watch line.
The new Tank Must collection refines the classic Cartier design and offers a hell of a value.
And in other news, it's 36mm again. And there's a plain steel version, of course.
