Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

My Flavor Of The Day

McDowell Time, Maxton Chronograph

For Monday, racing through my day, with the McDowell Time, Maxton Chronograph. This is another one of those, love-at-first-sight pieces for me. And this example specifically, with the Blue dial, orange accents, and Honey Brown, 3-hole, Horween Leather racing strap, is a fantastic representation of a vintage racing chronograph.

The timepiece screams racer, and sport chronograph in every way. I absolutely love the square case, with round bezel, another vintage nod. The Maxton also has a universally wearable case diameter at 39mm, which is usually a case diameter that's way to small for me, and my particular wearing tastes. But the square case definitely gives this timepiece greater presence on the wrist, affording a larger look.

The cherry on top, the buttery-soft, Horween Leather racing strap. This strap required zero break-in period, and the Honey Brown color is a perfect match for the orange accents on the dial. And what better bracelet for a racing chronograph, than a racing strap? The strap definitely finishes the look.

Drafting the Maxton on my wrist today, is a custom-crafted, racing-inspired bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo, sure to have my Wrist-Game combo today, taking 1st and 2nd place in the winner's circle.
