Best Archival and Vintage-Inspired Men's Watches

The Blackjack, $138 by Todd Snyder x Timex

We love and use our phones as much as the next guy, but no slab of glass and metal in your pocket can compete with the eternal style of a handsome watch on your wrist. That old school analog timekeeper has gotten a shot of '70s style this fall with reboots on archival models and vintage-inspired designs with rugged straps—from Autodromo's use of space-age materials for their motorsport-influenced Group B watch to Todd Snyder's homage to the stylish drivers of Formula One. The graphic, colorful faces and durable materials not only look masculine and cool, they look good with everything you'll be wearing going into the fall, like relaxed chinos, office-appropriate suits and your favorite well-worn denim shirts.
