I see lots of watches, and have even had one stolen, so it’s hard to really perk up when I see a new, standard issue automatic piece. Luckily, IWI, a resurrected UK brand, has made something a little out of the ordinary. Based on aviator watches of yore, their line has a crown at 12 o’clock and a big, bold face that comes in multiple colors — their Mod is shown here. The watches are apparently assembled in the UK and use Swiss movements. No pricing yet, and they appear to be only available in the UK for now, so buy a ticket on the Queen Mary 2 and get you one.
