If you need a break from current events in 2020 — and we can only imagine that you desperately need one — you should check out some of the coolest watches of the past couple weeks. Ranging from affordable G-Shocks to "if you have to ask"-priced Urwerks, these releases run the gamut. Most of these timepieces fall into the "tool watch" category (go figure — it's summer, and few people have any occasion to dress up lately), but as fall encroaches, we're sure to see dressier pieces creep up in our feeds. So enjoy the dive watches while the weather's warm!

MING 18.01 H41
The new, cryptically named 18.01 H41 from Malaysia-based watch company Ming looks like no other diver on the market, but promises impressive durability as well as a refined wearing experience.
Noy's latest timepiece, dubbed the Night Flight, is inspired by travel, albeit perhaps in an indirect way: the watch is a snapshot of the night sky above different cities — Taipei, Beijing, Seoul, Melbourne, Geneva, Cairo, Athens, Berlin, Jerusalem, and others
An entry in the Dark Side of the Moon collection first introduced in 2013, the new watch is housed in a 44.25mm black zirconium oxide ceramic case with matching ceramic bezel and Super-LumiNova-coated tachymeter scale.
Urwerk's EMC Time Hunter is collection has been around for some time, but a Desert Sage version is brand spanking new, turning an already-outlandish design into something positively future military-esque.
Based on Casio G-Shock’s chunky GA-110 model, the new watches sport resin cases and bands fully decked out in graphic designs from their respective anime series, with even more references incorporated into the dials.
