Editor’s Note: Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) and Baselworld 2020 are canceled but that hasn’t stopped watch brands large and small from debuting their new wares. To stay on top of this year’s best new watch releases, visit our tag page.
We previously waxed poetic about the Carpenter Watches’ Brooklyn Field Watch nearly two years ago. Since then, we thoroughly reviewed the brand’s Brooklyn Gent, an awesome 38mm everyday automatic, and have been patiently awaiting their next release.
And while we’re still waiting on a thoroughly new model, we do have some good news: the Brooklyn Field Watch is back in stock, newly redesigned and awaiting eager wrists. The new M1B and M2B still come in both black and white dials on either black or brown leather straps, but the dials and cases have been slightly tweaked: the triangular marker at 12 o’clock is now a 60-minute marker, and the case, dial and hands have been improved via the use of new tooling for better finishing.
Other than that, you’re still getting a comfortable 40mm field watch powered by the Miyota 821A automatic movement, a double-domed sapphire crystal and exhibition case back, a date complication, C3 lume and 50m of water resistance. For $595, this is a great first field watch from an American brand — though of course, we’re not arguing against it becoming your tenth field watch, either.
