It’s no secret that the Explorer II ref 16570 is slowly increasing its presence on the radars of enthusiasts and collectors alike. And for good reason, it wears like old-school Rolex, and can be had across a spectrum of Rolex enhancements, from tritium to luminova, and from 3185 to 3186 calibers, all within the same reference. These happen to be great buys at the moment, and it’s a watch that easily qualifies for daily usage, from the office to weekend yard work. Find a prime example well under $6,000 right here.
If you’re old man fancies himself in more formal environments, this Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph has a lot to love. First off, just look at it. A stunning dual-register dial with plenty of detail to get lost in hides an in-house movement underneath. This one also wears exceptionally well, with a 40mm case that sits slim on the wrist. This one may be for special occasions, whether they be board meetings, or weekend Netflix binge sessions. We don’t judge.
The Glashutte Original Senator Sixties has a healthy dose of throwback in all the right areas. The Arabic numerals are pure character, and the dial itself is a deep blue with sunburst texture. It’s a lovely take on mid century that holds up today without looking too much like a Don Draper wannabe. The movement is built by Glashutte as well, making this all the more a value proposition. Best of all, these can be had well south of $5,000. Check it out right here.
