They can’t blame you for consistently picking up a wristwatch that isn’t showing mechanical fortitude only because those storied watchmakers have never consistently catered to those with, well, a fashion sense. More often than not, guys have to jostle between the usual uneventful colours until uncompromising rakes started looking for NATO straps in a variety of colourways that resemble school orientation outfit ideas. Now, the likes of Omega are making preppy options that hint that they get it too. This version of the Seamaster Planet Ocean is sporting colours that used to only appear on a baller’s hype basketball sneakers.
