See Now, Buy Now: The Shinola Duck Watch Is the Toughest Watch You Can Buy For Winter (And Beyond)

SuperLumi-Nova glow-in-the-dark numbers and hands

There comes a time in every season (like right now, in the depths of winter) when even your accessories, right on down to one of the best men’s watches, start to take a beating. No matter if you’re bundled up with a pair of the best gloves for men or if you’re wearing some of the toughest winter pants, again, yes, even your accessories need to stand up to winter, and that’s where the Shinola Duck Watch comes in mighty handy in your collection of the best watches for men. You hopefully already know Shinola from this very blog and as makers of one of the best dive watches on the market, not to mention a stunning, stylish brown leather watch.

And the remarkably tough and well-designed Shinola Duck Watch is but the latest and greatest purchase you need to add to your wrist game when the going gets tough. It’s as if the lauded, Detroit-based brand had both winter adventures and coastal summer days (on or off Michigan’s Great Lakes) in mind when they designed the Shinola Duck Watch, complete with more than 660 feet of water resistance. It only gets better from there, to say the least. Before we go any further, note that this exceptional timepiece is priced just right at $650.

The Shinola Duck Series: Blue Bay Watch

The key with the Shinola Duck Watch is its toughness and durability, combined with a surprisingly elegant design. Yes, the Shinola Duck Watch is a surf-rated watch, but it should also prove mighty tough and legible when trying to navigate your way through a winter storm. SuperLumi-Nova dial and hand markings amp up the visibility, while the durable rubber strap will brush off water (and sleet, and snow) with ease). The Shinola Duck Watch clocks in at an agreeable 42mm in terms of case diameter, making this a watch built for work or play. You can snag this handsome dive watch in a range of colors to suit every palette, including Bay Blue, Canary Yellow and Gunmetal, plus a Stainless Steel Gift Set that could just be one of the best gifts for the watch fan.

And again, this watch is built for work or play: Wear it right now with a chambray shirt and a shawl cardigan, plus your favorite pair of blue jeans, alongside tough-as-heck leather boots for winter weekend (or casual work day) pursuits. When the time comes to step into some of the best lined pants to shovel the drive, throw on the hard-wearing, hard-working Shinola Duck Watch to stay on time throughout the day. If there’s one watch that can do it all for winter and beyond, it’s the Shinola Duck Watch — shop accordingly.

The Sunday Sale: This Rugged Outdoor Watch is 20 Percent Off at Huckberry Right Now

Marathon Watch WW194026 Swiss Made Military Diver's Automatic Medium Size  Watch with Tritium (36mm, Rubber Strap) : Marathon: Amazon.co.uk: Watches

There are certain deals that seem too good to pass up, especially when it comes to scoring a discount on one of the best men’s watches — that’s why you’ve got to see it to believe it yourself in the Huckberry Sale Section. The deal in question? I’m glad you asked, as it’s yet another fitting entry when it comes to the best menswear deals of the moment. Right now, you can take 20 percent off the Marathon MSAR Automatic Watch via the always well-stocked, covetable and seriously cool Huckberry Sale Section. That 20 percent discount (as of the time of this writing, at least) brings the watch down in price to about $840, from its previously lofty retail price of $1,050. So, that price drop now makes it one of the best men’s watches under $1,000, does it not? I’d have to say so, and I hope you feel the same way.

It’s the specs on the Marathon MSAR Automatic Watch that make it so impressive and downright essential if you need one of the best men’s adventure watches. The case on the Marathon MSAR Automatic Watch is sized at 36mm, a more old-school touch that ensures it’s not too cumbersome to wear on your wrist. And the Marathon MSAR Automatic Watch features a tough stainless steel case and a hard-wearing sapphire crystal dome on the dial. As to the dial itself, it’s easily legible in adverse conditions thanks to MaraGlo paint on those dial markings. And as Huckberry says, thanks to its “robust construction,” the Marathon MSAR Automatic Watch is water-resistant all the way down to 300 meters. It’s one of the hardest-working, toughest watches on the market (complete with a ready-for-anything silicone rubber strap), so you’d do well to add the Marathon MSAR Automatic Watch to your watch collection right now at 20 percent off. Happy shopping — thank me later, my friends.

Style Pick of the Week: Shinola Bronze Monster Automatic Watch – The Best Investment-Level Watch to Shop Now

I’d wager that if you’re reading this blog, you’re willing to do your research when it comes to investing in, for example, one of the best men’s watches from a brand like Shinola, right? In fact, I’d bet you’re willing to dig in and do the work when it comes to tracking plenty of the best gear for men, be it finding the best leather boots for men or layering up with a best-selling men’s shirt jacket. This approach will certainly serve you well when it comes to finding and selecting the perfect watch to wear on your wrist every day, with just about every single ensemble you can dream up. Allow me, then, in that case, to introduce you to the iconic, expertly crafted, dressy-yet-rugged Shinola Bronze Monster Automatic, an exceptional watch with a price tag to match (it retails for $1,650 at Shinola, as it were).

Now, if you’ve read the blog, you know that I’ve shared a Shinola review or two singing the praises of the Detroit-based brand. That trend isn’t going to let up any time soon. The Shinola Bronze Monster Automatic, like all Shinola men’s watches, is made with exacting attention to detail and incredible materials befitting of the higher price tag (most Shinola watches for men retail for under $1,000).

While with some luxury watches, you’re really paying for the designer name as much as the watch itself, the Shinola Bronze Monster Automatic defies convention and packs in a whole lot of excellent technical specs to go along with the now-iconic Shinola name. Designed as an homage to the 1920s and Michigan rumrunners during Prohibition, it’s an elegant yet hard-wearing watch that looks incredible and performs just as nicely. The Shinola Bronze Monster Automatic features an intricate 26-jewel automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve. This is a very good thing: The power reserve allows the watch to keep running accurately even when you’re not wearing it, because an automatic watch like this one winds according to the wearer’s wrist movement. In short. the Shinola Bronze Monster Automatic, without getting overly technical, is carefully designed, hard-working and supremely stylish.

About those style points, though. The Shinola Bronze Monster Automatic features a handsome brushed bronze case and a visually striking, slightly larger 43mm case diameter. That means it stands out more on your wrist and is less of a dress watch, and more of a watch to wear with rugged menswear like one of the best men’s chambray shirts, dark blue denim and brown leather boots. Of course, the Shinola Bronze Monster Automatic looks great with just about anything you pair it up with (even a worsted wool suit!, That’s true whether you rock it with the additional leather strap (shown here) or the khaki nylon field watch strap. In either iteration, the Shinola Bronze Monster Automatic is a wearable work of art befitting of the heftier price tag. It’s one of the best watches for men and one of the best investment-level timepieces to consider adding to your collection.

The Thursday Buy: The Shinola Vinton Watch is the Classic Timepiece You Need Now

There are some men’s accessories that are so timeless and sharp, it’d almost be foolish not to invest in them. That’s the case, at least, with the best watches for men as produced by Shinola, a full lineup from the Detroit-based watchmaker and luxury goods brand, and that especially applies to the seriously cool, super-sharp Shinola Vinton Watch. If you’re a fan of the brand (new or old!), then you know that Shinola can do it all, from making one of the best weekender bags on the market to delivering one of the coolest dress watches for your wrist. It’s with that blend of classic and modern style that they’ve added the Shinola Vinton Watch to the brand’s ever-expanding and yet carefully curated lineup of watches. The Shinola Vinton Watch hits on all the right notes if you want a watch (particularly heading into the holiday season) that you can wear to the office and to holiday gatherings without missing a beat.

It features classic stainless steel construction found in durable dive watches, but the Shinola Vinton Watch really stands apart (quietly, of course) thanks to its crisp dial design and a nice, dressy 38mm case diameter. It’s a solid change of pace from the ever-so-slightly more rugged Shinola Runwell Collection, which boasts options with case diameter measurements of up to 47mm. Yes indeed, the Shinola Vinton Watch just gets the details (big and small) correct.

The specs on the Shinola Vinton Watch, of course, hold up to scrutiny, and they do so at a price that’s lower than expected ($550 at Shinola, to be exact). The dial is both crisp, timeless and refreshing, as all Shinola watch dials tend to be, and the option to get something as sharp as a blue dial against a smooth stainless steel case makes the Shinola Vinton Watch just the right blend of tailored and laidback. The Shinola Vinton Watch is the kind of watch to pair with casual staples (like a thermal crewneck and dark blue denim) as well as more business casual offerings, like tailored chinos and your favorite cardigan.

Other watch design options include a visually striking Midnight Blue paired with handsome PVD gold hardware, right down to the bracelet itself. It’s a worthwhile option to consider the most versatile offering for your own wardrobe with the Shinola Vinton Watch, but it’s almost hard to go wrong with any option (this is Shinola we’re talking about, after all). The best men’s watches also beat the rest of the field with small touches, like a date window at 3 o’clock, set against that well-done dial design you only get at Shinola. When you want to upgrade what’s on your wrist, the choice is clear: Make it Shinola, and make your next purchase the Shinola Vinton Watch.

Of course, the specs on the Spinnaker Fleuss Watch are everything you could ask for in a go-anywhere summer watch. The 43mm case diameter is sturdy and substantial, while the lens is made from scratch-resistant sapphire crystal (the good stuff, in short). It’s water-resistant down to 150 meters, all the better to really get out there and hit the, well, water. It also helps that this stainless steel dive watch is pretty stylish, right on down to the crisp dial design itself.

The Friday Read: The Best New Spring Watch, Mack Weldon Gear & the Best Spring Beers

CroftVintageSilverSP-5058-0A-SS13_1800x1800.jpg (1800×1800)

Folks, you know what time it is. It’s time to step into the weekend with today’s action-packed Friday Read, which covers new spring beer, new spring gear from the likes of Mack Weldon, some new SeaVees sneakers and of course, a new spring watch. The watch in question is above is one I can’t recommend highly enough. It’s coming at you courtesy of Spinnaker Watches, and I’ve had the chance to test out the brand in recent weeks. In fact, I covered one of the coolest new watches from Spinnaker just last week on the blog. There’s no doubt in my mind that the Spinnaker Croft Automatic Watch is every bit as functional, durable and stylish as you need this season. And hey, the stainless steel case, contrasting bezel and black leather strap give this rugged men’s watch plenty of versatility, too. Consider it a proper way to start your weekend — and know that there’s more where that came from.

We’ve got plenty of other ground to cover today, as you’ll find out in just a minute. As for me, I’ve been plenty busy with other freelance pursuits, including my next music-and-menswear newsletter entry. It’ll hit your inbox tomorrow at The Style Guide In Brief, and you’re also getting a Tuesday newsletter dispatch as well. It’s fun, it’s informational, it’s a great way to start your weekend (as biased as I might be, though).

If that sounds ideal to you, well, I assure you that it is. Elsewhere, I’m once again back in Florida to spend some quality time with my dogs as my parents head out on a quick trip. From time spent in the sun to time spent with Point Ybel Brewing Company beer, it doesn’t get much better. I hope your weekend is just as relaxing and enjoyable. Cheers and thanks for reading!

 

  • Now, how’s this for another spring shopping pick? The arrival of warm weather doesn’t mean you should revert to old-school, threadbare T-shirts. In fact, that’s why I’m recommending you get one of the best polos for spring and summer from… well, who else but Mack Weldon?? The brand’s Ace Hooded Sweatshirt has you covered for casual days at home, and the Mack Weldon Vesper Polo is as great a way as any to add a bit of polish to all those more dressed-up meetings (or rather, Zoom calls). Go for it and let me know your take.

  • What do you need to pair with your new spring polo from Mack Weldon? That’s easy: Some stylish new spring sneakers. If you ask me, I think it’s very tough to beat SeaVees sneakers, especially the sustainable and eco-conscious SeaVees Legend Sneaker Seachange. It’s the brand’s first-ever collection release with conservation group Seachange, so that’s quite the 2-for-1 deal. Get ’em right now at Huckberry.

  • Now, I mentioned above that we’d be talking about the best beers for spring, and with that being said, well, here’s what I’ve got for you. Over at GearMoose, I covered my favorite beers for the season from a wide variety of famed and acclaimed breweries. That goes for Allagash Brewing in Maine, as well as Threes Brewing “down the street” here in Brooklyn (to mention but a couple). Crack open a cold one and enjoy yourself, folks.
  • Let’s switch tracks for a second here. For Maxim.com, I’ve been quite busy these past few weeks covering all manner of new watches, but I had the chance to step outside of the watch world and cover the latest Laphroaig whisky launch, a 10-year whisky finished in Sherry Oak casks. I’ve also been sampling said whisky, and I can confirm it’s as great as it looks. Cheers and let’s raise a glass, shall we?

Frontier 30 728x90 That’ll bring us to the end, believe it or not, of another Friday Read. As I said above, be sure to check out those new spring beers, that new Laphroaig Scotch and of course, my weekend newsletter. Naturally, I also have one more guide to share before we ride into the weekend. If you, like me, can’t seem to put away your new favorite pair of boots, this #OOTD will tell you all about how to make ’em work for you this season. Lace up those Huckberry boots and we’ll see you out there.

The Friday Read: Eco-Friendly Menswear, New Luxury Watches & Swim Trunks for Summer

First off: Thanks for being here for another edition of The Friday Read, my ultimate guide to help you step into the weekend in style, preferably with some shopping picks in mind and a delicious craft beer or coffee close at hand. We’re going to start today with a theme that’s close to my heart, especially given that it’s Earth Month. Sustainability in fashion should be as important as the right fabric, the right fit or the right style essentials, and that’s where Pact Clothing (as seen above!) comes into play.

I’ve had the chance to test out the brand’s organic cotton menswear, including the Pact Vintage Snap Down, in recent weeks. These pieces are classic, well-made and affordable, and that goes for the brand’s stylish T-shirts as well as its outerwear and basics. And with Earth Day itself coming up, you should certainly start shopping for some eco-friendly menswear in a nod to the day. Some good food for thought for the weekend, yes? As if that wasn’t enough, the Pact Vintage Snap Down is on sale (as of this writing) for $50. Talk about a great deal on the most sustainable menswear out there.

america

Hopefully, that recommendation leads you on the right path to start the weekend. As for me, this will be another prime weekend for testing out more menswear from Pact, as I plan on strolling around the borough, venturing out to Prospect Park and perhaps enjoying some beers at the recently revamped and reopened Threes Brewing (always a favorite). In the meantime, I’ve also got some more writing to take care, naturally — in fact, you should head over to my newsletter, The Style Guide In Brief, and hit subscribe before tomorrow’s edition. Twice a week, I talk about music, menswear, craft beer and more. As I always say, it’s free and it’s fun! So, that’s what’s on tap for me this weekend. How about you? Before you answer that question, check out my other top shopping picks and reads for your spring days ahead. Cheers!

  • Saturdays NYC, the fashion-forward (yet still easily wearable) Manhattan-based brand, has long been a favorite of mine (since I moved to the city, in fact!). They blend the classics with fresh, modern updates, and while they started out making surfing gear, they’ve long since moved into other menswear essentials for the modern shopper. Take this classic denim jacket, for starters. The Saturdays NYC Emil Denim Jacket is as good as it gets for casual spring layering, ideally alongside the Beckett Simonon Reid Sneakers. It’s got some vintage flair and plenty of seasonal versatility. Another shopping pick down.
  • Straight from the headline of this post, there’s plenty of time to stock up on summer essentials. By that, I mean you’ve got more than enough time to find your new favorite pair of swim trunks, and it’s your lucky day. I updated my guide to the best swim trunks for GearMoose, and you’d do well to check it out and start shopping accordingly.
  • The headline aptly mentions the best luxury watches on the market, and that’s something I’ve been covering quite a bit lately. That’s because this month has brought with it the virtual return of the excellent Watches and Wonders virtual luxury watch conference, and it’s been a pleasure checking out the latest and greatest from so many of the world’s top brands (including Panerai and Breitling). In fact, I loved checking out the new Panerai eLAB-ID, a newly launched and highly sustainable watch made from nearly 100 percent recycled materials. How’s that for sustainability and style, ehh? Read more at Maxim.

That’ll wrap up today’s weekend guide in fine form, I reckon. How about that? Before we sail off into the weekend, here’s one more reading and shopping pick for you. The Taylor Stitch California Shirt has been a standard in my own wardrobe for years, and there’s at least one chance for you to score your own Taylor Stitch shirt for under $100. Yes, you read that right. Head to this post to read all about how to get the newest Taylor Stitch California Shirt for under $100. Go forth and prosper, friends! Thanks for reading, and we’ll see you back here for tomorrow’s Style Pick of the Week.

See Now, Buy Now: The Spinnaker Watches Bradner Watch is The Coolest Watch to Buy For Spring

Spinnaker Watches review

A rugged-yet-dressy, durable leather watch you’ll find yourself wearing daily.

The time is upon us, quite literally, for you to find your new favorite watch for spring and summer. The kind of watch you can wear nearly anywhere, the kind of timepiece you can pick up and throw on at a moment’s notice with just about anything. Ladies and gentlemen, that watch is the Spinnaker Watches Bradner Watch, one of the best new men’s watches I’ve seen in some time (and that you’ve seen, I’d wager). Trust me when I say you’re going to want to pre-order this one. Spinnaker Watches, if you’re unfamiliar, is assuredly a watch brand worth having on your radar, and that’s an understatement. They’re based in Hong Kong and specialize in affordable dive watches, along with making some of the best watches for men in general, all with durability, adventure, functionality and style in mind.

It’s a lofty goal to achieve, and to do so at a relatively affordable price point, but achieve it they do. Through stainless steel dive watches to dressy and bold leather and stainless steel watches like the Spinnaker Fleuss Collection, it’s a rare blend of accessibility, performance and great looks that you’re getting. These are all very good things, and that brings me back to the Spinnaker Bradner Watch. It features a Japanese automatic movement (this means the watch winds itself as the wearer moves their wrist) and is nicely sized at 42mm, a good fit for most wrists. That’s only the tip of the iceberg, folks.

SHOP: The Spinnaker Bradner Watch

Spinnaker Watches Bradner Watch

A rough-and-tumble watch you can wear with outdoor gear or casual spring and summer style staples in equal measure.

The Spinnaker Bradner Watch has plenty going for it when it comes to stylish design, too. That makes it one of Spinnaker’s best-selling watches — note how nicely the tidal blue dial stands out with those gold accents. And helpfully, the Spinnaker Bradner Watch is set on a waterproof leather strap for functionality and handsome contrast alongside the blue dial. It’s also worth noting that this rugged leather dive watch is water-resistant to 180 meters. Go ahead and pick up a Spinnaker watch strap to give yourself even more versatility.

Frontier 30 728x90

All things considered, it’s easily your new favorite watch for spring and summer, and it seems to me like it’s calling out to be worn with subtly stylish looks, like your favorite T-shirt and light wash jeans. The crisp blue dial and contrasting leather strap on the Spinnaker Bradner Watch also make it more than wearable with your favorite Oxford shirt and dark blue jeans for high-low, casual office style (or Work-From-Home style, if you will). When you want a watch that can do it all and look more than great in the process, you want the Spinnaker Bradner Watch, easy as that.

Beckett Simonon boots review

The coolest new suede boots (and water-repellent, at that!) for your seasonal wardrobe.

Folks, it’s time that we step right into another Friday Read, is it not? It’s another cold winter weekend across much of the country (I happen to be on a Florida getaway at the moment, sorry!), but I’m still plotting out my winter wardrobe when I return to the Big Apple. I don’t know about you, but for me, that’s got to mean some of the best men’s boots from a luxurious-yet-accessible brand like Beckett Simonon. And it just so happens that the incredible Beckett Simonon Gallagher Boots are made from water-repellent suede, a nice way to step out in winter rain or even light snow while still keeping a bit of refined style on lock. Heck, these are even boots you can wear with jeans and your favorite field jacket, if you really want to keep it rugged & casual-yet-cool. Go with Beckett Simonon boots, and they won’t let you down. That’s the best way I can recommend you kick off Friday, but a few choice reads and shopping picks below ought to help, ehh?

HELM Boots

As for me, I’ll be enjoying another Florida weekend in the sun (this you know, if you follow me on Instagram), filled with some relaxing pool and beach hangs, plus local craft beer from Point Ybel Brewing — my favorite brewery in town — and some choice reads. I’m working my way through “Greenlights” by Matthew McConaughey, as it were, and I can’t recommend it enough. Entertaining and enlightening the whole way through so far.  But back to the rest of today’s Friday Read below — check out the coolest new watch on the market, read about the best loungewear and roll into the weekend with ease.
