Watch of the day
What's my wrist-wear choice for today?
My Flavor Of The Day
It's always a treat when the McDowell Time, Maxton Chronograph comes back around in the wearing rotation. It was love at first sight when I first laid my eyes on this timepiece. To me, it personified everything that came to my mind, when I envisioned what a vintage-style, racing, chronograph timepiece should look like. There is nothing about this watch that immediately screams homage, or a copy of an already established brand, or timepiece; it has a similar feel, and original look, all at the same time.
What's not to like about this watch? The dial and orange accents are amazing. There is a magnificent radiance to this dial, that I haven't adequately captured in this photo. The timepiece screams quality; from the ceramic bezel, to the high-quality, 3-hole, leather racing strap. This watch looks, feels, and wears like a timepiece 5-times its price-point.
Pairing this exceptional racing chrono with a custom, beaded bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo.
