Tactical Time

Watches this fall, from what we've seen, will be a bit rougher than the preppy pieces we've been sporting on grosgrain ribbons all summer. The larger faces along with vintage military-issue features like oversized numbers and NATO-style nylon bands make for a timeless style that's ideal for weekend wear (or the office if you're the rolled-sleeves and jeans type). Timex is debuting a larger version of their classic camper watch, with a more substantial 40mm-wide face and Burberry's matte gunmetal timepiece pairs perfectly with the label's soldier-inspired fall collection. If you can't wait, we'd suggest M.H. Bertucci's Titanium A-2. The watch has rugged good looks,  Swiss movement and a surprisingly affordable price tag.

M.H. Bertucci, $140
at REI

Timex, $50
available in August

Burberry, $495 at Burberry stores

  • Hamilton supplied timepieces for the US military during WWII.

The Expertly Packed Carry-On


What should I pack for my first business trip?

- Matt, OH


With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
