Simpler Times

Is the Timex Perpetual Calendar the perfect watch? Go ahead and drop it. Crack it. Lose it. The corner drugstore price and utilitarian styling almost dare you to. And with such All-American appeal, there's pretty much zero chance this thing will go out of style. Ever. $70, at Timex. - Patrick Ryan

  • The watch comes stock with a leather band, but until the cold weather comes, you should swap it out for a cooler, preppy band like this one from Ivy institution J.Press. Grosgrain band, $29, at J.Press.
