Designed by Astor+Banks, a new company in Chicago, the Chrono watch references German military style from the 1970s. The three-register chronograph boasts a 44mm case 316L Stainless Steel with 22mm lugs, a Swiss quartz movement, and a scratch-resistant sapphire. The black dial is marked in white and painted with Lume. There’s a date aperture in addition to an index at the 6 ‘clock, and, at the 12 o’ clock mark, there’s an eye-catching “V” symbol instead of the standard index. Available from Astor+Banks, the watch comes with a strap of green canvas or black leather. Prices start at $550.
