Clean and simple Scandinavian design, the Tsovet SVT-CN38's stainless steel bezel and brown Italian leather strap are the perfect tones to complement that Riviera style you've been trying out recently. Think linen suits and sockless loafers.

Summer Time

Between the summer beach houses, new swimwear and budgeting for copious amounts of alcohol to be drank while wearing said swimwear at the aforementioned beach house, you're probably not left with much on the bankroll. But that doesn't mean you don't want a timepiece that will keep you looking fresh while keeping track of time. And hey, we appreciate a classic Submariner just as much as the next guy, but if you're looking to keep some extra scratch in your pockets, this compilation of affordable summer timepieces should help. Happy timekeeping.


If fun is what you're after this summer—as it should be—a Breda watch is your perfect wrist companion. At a criminally affordable $45, you'll have plenty of extra cash for a bucket of Coronas or five. The red second hand and blue denim wristband will provide all the necessary pop that is demanded of a summer outfit. Check out this newcomer's webshop for a look at their full spectrum of budget-friendly wrist pieces.

Do you know your movements? Here's a simple explanation of what makes your timepiece tick.


Daniel Wellington

Brushed rose gold and a combination leather/nato strap play off each other with Daniel Wellington's newest Grace collection. The minimalist design that reflects every collection is still there albeit this time with a bit more playfulness. The Grace collection's nautical-inspired look features a thinner bezel and 36mm case that transitions nicely from the boat to the bar. May we suggest: upon purchase, pick up the crocodile leather strap for a little added luxury on the right occasion.

Don't worry about replacing a battery, like, ever. This bad boy's solar powered.
