Leave it to John Mayer and Hodinkee to being back a classic G-shock in the right color and with all the right features. Hell… I’d even pay $180 for it.
When it comes to watches, I’m a Sinn guy first… but have always loved Tudors as well. In fact, my early Tudor Marine Nationale is probably my most worn timepiece. That being said, it’s been almost 30 years since Tudor made watches for the French Navy. That changed today.
The Pelagos FXD is a retooled Pelagos diver built to entertain the needs of the French military. It has fixed strap bars, is made of titanium and is too big for me (42mm)… But, there is no denying its absolute beauty.
I love tool watches.
Farer is a British watch company with a rare trait in the horology world – they actually know how to use color… And this new chrono is a perfect example of that. And at $2k with a Swiss automatic movement? It’s an absolute steal… If they stop making this watch in the next year or so, it will be worth double that in five.
I’m not much of a hippie… But, I am a guy that appreciates folks that stick up for what they believe in. Instead of hugging trees, Triwa stands up and says shit like, “Stop messing with our oceans or we will kick your teeth out.”
I dig that… and I dig this watch.
