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.
