Watch of the day

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day


Aviator, SWIFTS Flight Team, Professional Chronograph, Limited Edition

Carrying-over the Aviator / Pilot watch theme in successive days, starting Sunday with the Aviator, SWIFTS Flight Team, Professional Chronograph, Limited Edition. This modern-day Pilot chronograph has striking, drop-dead gorgeous features. And for a chronograph, especially a Pilot watch. dial legibility is key. As you can see, this dial is spectacular, heavily textured, and chronograph registers that emulate the instrument panel in an aircraft cockpit. The splashes of yellow on the chrono second hand, and totalizer registers definitely adds to the sporty feel of the timepiece. The chronograph pushers, affixed to the top of the case, rather than the side, is a very unique design element, meant to aid Pilots in more easily manipulating the timing functions of the chronograph, when wearing Pilot's gloves.


Pairing this Limited Edition modern Aviator, with a custom, beaded bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo.



Croton, Chronomaster 925

Being Colts football Sunday, I was compelled to fit-in a blue watch selection prior to the start of the game; I wouldn't want to break my string of bringing the team good luck, especially with a playoff berth on the line. My choice, the Croton, Chronomaster 925.


The 925 is special for the high-quality materials, and precious metal that comprises its construction. The name of the timepiece is derived from the case being forged from .925 pure, solid silver. Add to that, a ceramic bezel, and genuine stingray strap, and you can see why this timepiece is a real stand-out.


Pairing this beautiful sport chronograph, with a custom, beaded bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo. In the spirit of the holidays, I'm hoping that my Colts can gift-wrap a victory, and playoff berth in tonight's game.
