Every man is a watch man, but not every man is a watch man. But being oblivious to the ins-and-outs of timekeeping is no excuse to leave your wrist naked.
Thankfully, Singapore-based Plain Supplies has a way out for those clueless about chronographs: the Everyday Watch. Currently funding on Kickstarter, this simple timepiece eschews the mechanical intricacies and luxury materials horologists crave. What’s left is a bare bones sophistication that will feel equally appropriate at a movie theater as a black-tie benefit for the theatre.

Customers can choose Gunmetal or Rose Gold for the 40mm stainless steel case which holds a Japanese-made GL15 Miyota quartz movement. But the real versatility comes by way of three interchangeable straps included with every purchase: mesh stainless steel, cow leather and nylon NATO.
Although their strap quick release system is commendable, interchangeable bands aren’t exactly revolutionary. But at $60 a pop, you’d be hard-pressed to find a watch that will match this for economy and universality.
So you won’t be passing this one down for generations, but no one has to know that.
You’ve got until February 23rd to get in on the first order, with an estimated delivery date of May 2017.
