This Handsome, Affordable Watch Was Born in Chicago

Remember: It’s what’s on the inside that counts

By The Editors

There’s no shortage of incredible, investment-worthy watches out there.

Your self-winding chronos. Storied Swiss divers. Zillion-piece in-house movements and alligator-skin straps.

But what if you want to keep your income in your pocket, rather than on your wrist? You turn to Wolfpoint, a new Chicago company making quality, workaday timepieces priced under $200.

Joining the ranks of the city’s growing number of watch companies (see: here and here), Wolfpoint, which takes inspo from the confluence of the three branches of the Chicago River, falls squarely in the casual category, sourcing its movements from Switzerland and assembling the tickers right here in the City of Big Shoulders.

And by adopting the blessed direct-to-consumer model that has allowed brands like Warby Parker to outpace the competition, Wolfpoint is able to offer its timepieces at a sliver of the price.

The brand’s timepieces sport sapphire-crystal glass and Swiss Ronda quartz movements. As for looks, Wolfpoint offers timeless designs that’ll easily adapt to any wardrobe or style. What’s more, each watch comes with a fine leather strap sourced from our city’s own Horween Leather Company.

With its clean lines and classic face, we’re partial to the Archer, but you’d do well to check out the full range.

Because if you order before March 12th (3/12, 3-1-2, see what they did there?), you’re good for $40 off. Just enter WOLF40 at checkout.

Happy timekeeping.
