What to Wear and How to Wear It: A Watch for Spring

April 9th, 2014 | 2 Comments

Whether you are getting ready for spring cleaning or excited to be at the ballpark for opening day, its time to put away those dark watches and don a brighter dial to compliment those spring pastel colors. The biggest necessity for a watch during the spring is a decent water resistance for those sudden rain showers. Now that winter is over and you aren’t staying in or only going out once a day, it’s important to have a watch that’ll move with you. A watch that’ll fit in being at the park in the morning, an afternoon lunch date and a night on the town. Spring is about getting out and about after being cooped up all winter long. Here are some watches we think will fit the bill.

Brazen FER1W003W0
Put away the classic dress watches and put on a sports watch; while enjoying this new spring weather you are going to need a watch that can handle some rough housing. Look for a sports watch. With a white carbon fiber patterned dial and navy and baby blue accents, it’d be hard for this Brazen not to go with any outfit this Spring. The carbon fiber dial adds a sporty look and the 50m water resistance is enough protection from those sudden downpours. The brushed 42mm case is a great modern size without being too overbearing. $210

Flight FER2A004D0
A pilot’s watch is a must for spring because they are large and legible. It just so happens that this particular model features a sweet blue dial. In regular light, you get a light shimmer of the sun burst blue, but when it’s gleaming in the sunlight, it provides the perfect amount of luster. Additionally, the Flight has great specs: date display, screwed down crown, a brushed 42mm case, and 100m water resistance. It also has very impressive lume. In all, its a simple type B pilot with all the essential features. And yes, it comes in a bunch of different colors. $295

Ray FEM6500BB9
If a sport watch or pilot watch isn’t your bag, a diver watch could be right up your alley. Sure, we said that a spring watch is one that isn’t too dark, and here we are recommending a black watch. But the matte black dial truly shines in the light and accentuates the hour markers. Plus, the lack of a bracelet makes it nice and airy. The 200m water resistance is ideal for the spur of the moment pool parties, you don’t need to worry about taking it off and losing it like your keys. Mounted to a   rubber strap, this Ray is perfect for time in the water. With a unidirectional bezel and 41.5mm wide, the ray is perfect for a modern dive watch. And what can come in more handy than both a day and date display? Like the Flight, the Ray does sport impressive lume, more so than its sister model, the Mako. The included rubber strap is fit for resisting rain and sweat (which is must if you’re living in Southern California right now) $260.

The Third Rock: The Planet Orient CFM00001B FM00001B

April 4th, 2014 | No Comments

Like cars, some watches are considered hybrids or crossovers. Take the Planet Orient for example– the dial tachymeter and layout scream sportiness, but the unidirectional bezel, screwed down crown and 100m water resistance is more reminiscent of a diver. Some may call it an identity crisis, but we think its a great problem to have. We think you’re getting the best of both worlds here. What’s more is that you can grab it on sale at Orient Watch USA for a fraction of the cost. Just use code EARTH. You’ll also get free shipping!
