This watch is a new take on the classic 1970s designs – from Germans Dietrich Lubs and Dieter Rams – that were forebears of Apple's minimalist electronics style. Its case is a sleek 40mm wide by 8mm thick. A thin stainless-steel-mesh band lends a distinctive look (though you can also opt for one in leather). A quartz movement marks the date at the bottom of the dial. [$200; braun-clocks.com]
