A Serious Watch for the Seriously Handsome

This is how DSPTCH celebrates five years in style

By The Editors

Looking for an heirloom watch?

You’re spoiled for choice. You already know the names, the specs, the wave diamond dials.

But what about something a little more practical? A utilitarian, top-of-the-line watch you can pair not only with a suit, but also with trail-runners, a pocketful of GORP and scattered thunderstorms?

Introducing: the new DSPTCH Special Edition Combat B25, made in collaboration with Lum-Tec.

DSPTCH, one of our top-five favorite S.F. emporia, celebrates its fifth anniversary this year, and to do so, they’re partnering with a selection of brands on one-off, limited-edition projects.

The Combat B25 is the first.

What it’s got: utilitarian (there’s that word again) nylon straps accompanied by all the details you’d expect from a premium ticker (bead-blasted titanium carbide PVD hard coating, Japanese-made Miyota OS20J movement, water resistance to 656 feet, etc.).

What we care about: looks great. Tells the time. Supports a shop we love.

If the B25 isn’t your thing, keep an eye on DSPTCH anyway, as they’ve got more limited-edition projects coming down the pike.

But get on this. We’re picking up one today.

That means there are just 49 left.

And counting.
