Here’s a watch we didn’t see coming. While the Monza is a vintage classic that’s received a few modern iterations and updates over the years, these have mostly been fairly conservative in aesthetics and styling. This thing, however, looks like something the Predator would wear while out on a date — and we mean that as a distinct compliment. Made of carbon, it comes in at 42mm and is complemented by colorful blue and red accents, a skeletonized dial and — get this — a flyback complication (i.e., you don’t have to stop the chronograph before restarting it, which makes timing successive events such as laps much easier, and more accurate).
Alright, enough with all the pricey special editions for a second. How about this: a light-powered dive watch, water resistant to 200m, available in super lightweight titanium or awesome black carbon for $3,050? (Oh, and the forged carbon version is fused with luminous material and glows in the dark — did we mention that? We thought that would pique your interest.) Both are powered by the unique Calibre TH50-00 movement, which makes use of semi-transparent dials in the Solargraph models to recharge via ambient light. This way, you don’t need to worry about battery changes.
