The new Tradition Captain Cook MKIII Automatic takes design inspiration from a very popular 1960's/1070's design with a larger overall case profile as well as sportier colors (and a much longer power reserve via the ETA C07.621 automatic movement.

Joseph Abboud is a name that is generally associated with fashion and apparel. But, they do make watches under this brand and damn fine watches they are! In this Talk About Watches exclusive offer, you are able to get this sport chronograph for less than $100. Aside from the name, you are getting an oversized case (approximately 47mm) that is popular right now along with an excellent dial execution that is sure to draw attention to the wrist. An easy to wear everyday sport watch that is sure to be presented well on your wrist.
The Sturmanskie Stingray is a masterful build, from both an architectural and "watch guy" standpoints". This heavy build is in 316L steel, measuring a hefty 47mm x 15mm. Housed within is the SII NH35 automatic 24 jewel movement, delivering quick set date at the 9 position. The crystal is an especially heavy example of hardened mineral, key because this watch is built to handle genuine extreme conditions. Depending on your selection, some models will have heavy steel bars to further protect. The dial is beautifully detailed, which is a key feature of higher end builds. Again depending on selection you will find a flat finish dial, or one emulating the look of water droplets, or even the look of stingray. It's important to note that all luminous material is true Super Luminova, including the unidirectional multi-piece sandwich style bezel.
Joseph Abboud is of course a legendary name in fine clothing design. Over the years watches have been produced as well. One of the first points to emphasize is that this find is not from the current batch on the market, but rather from a heavier group built a few years back for distribution in high end clothier locations. We know this because we spoke directly with the designer and creator of these watches for JA! Not only that, having examined this series in person can share that they have a beautiful balanced heft; these are well made watches.
Steinhart is a micro-brand well known for producing good quality watches at very low price points and the new Swiss Made Nav B-Chrono 47 Baumuster B Grey Edition follows that tradition. What is especially interesting at this price point is the use of a Top Grade Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph (with a custom decorated gold tone rotor). Add to that the use of sapphire crystals and Super Luminova (BGW9) packaged into a 47mm gunmetal and grey overall "package" and the $1K price point makes it very attractive to many.
