Twelve O'Clock High

Its design is not rooted in any sort of authenticity. It's not made in America. I'm sure it costs way too much for its construction methods and materials, and I'd be willing to bet it won't last long enough to hand down to future generations. There, now my watch know-it-alls can save a little bit of time ripping this up in the comments. Based on the WWII RAF clock used to monitor and track enemy aircraft, this watch utilizes the obscure and impactful design elements to create a modern looking piece. Love it, hate it, talk shit on it, but whatever you do, at least enjoy its aesthetic for a second (pun very much intended).
