Looking for a stylish new watch (maybe one to spend that bonus or tax return on as a treat)? I’d wager you are. In that case, the timing couldn’t be better, seeing as Carpenter Watches is making your new favorite watch — the stellar, classically inspired G4 Brooklyn Gent. It;’s not cheap (get it for $895 at Huckberry), but it delivers in every single category. We’re talking both throwback looks (mid-century, specifically), plus durability and quality construction (the G4 Brooklyn Gent features a Swiss-made automatic movement for precise timekeeping). Again, what makes it worth spending your hard-earned dough on a stylish new watch that’ll set you back close to a grand? Allow Carpenter Watches — out of Brooklyn, fittingly enough — to answer that one for you via our See Now, Buy Now series. Specifically, the G4 Brooklyn Gent and Carpenter Watches take cues from founder Neil Carpenter’s own family, and watches passed down through the years. That would explain the perfectly executed dial design and the refined, not-too-small 38mm case diameter.
Carpenter Watches gets plenty else right throughout its well-curated and well-crafted line, too — these are handsome, subtly stylish timepieces that make a statement without being too imposing. That means you can wear the G4 Brooklyn Gent with everything from a rugged henley or a classic flannel shirt and slim faded denim to a refined wool suit. The use of a bronze case contrasts quite nicely with the brown leather strap on the G4 Brooklyn Gent as well — again, that contrast will work nicely whether you wear this timepiece from Carpenter Watches to the office or to your favorite brewery (feel free to try it at either location!). It’s also refreshing to find a stylish leather watch that isn’t too ostentatious or gaudy — Carpenter Watches is classic through and through. I think you’ll find the same once you invest in one. Head to Twitter to let me know if you pick one up!
