88 Rue du Rhone Watches: The Swiss Tradition Continues

88 rue du rhone watches the swiss tradition continues 39mm watch
The country of Switzerland is known for a variety cultural touchstones: chocolate, Roger Federer, and watches. 88 Rue du Rhone is looking to add to the rich Swiss tradition of making quality timepieces with their own brand of luxury wristwatches like the Double 8 Origin 39mm pictured above.

Formed by brothers Elie and Pierre Bernheim (grandsons of famous Swiss watchmaker Raymond Weil), 88 Rue du Rhone watches are made with nothing but exceptional quality, sophisticated design and accessible prices in mind.  The brand’s name comes from the “mystery” of the only missing street number on the Rue du Rhone in Geneva—an exact location with a stunning view of the Rhone leaving Lake Geneva that conjures the great history of the country and Switzerland and all of its creations.

The Double 8 Origin is a legitimate “Swiss Made” product and features fundamental design qualities such as a stitched black, calf leather strap, a 39mm polished steel case and a deep black time face that lists the date at 3 o’clock; all qualities that a man looks for in a timeless wrist watch. Meanwhile, the silver numerals (in a unique Arab font) set on the black dial provide a unique aesthetic that will appeal to the bold entrepreneur and the reserved traditionalist alike. And the vibrant red second hand stands out for both the man who has to be somewhere in a city immediately or the guy who is content to let the day pass sitting in a wooden armchair deep in rolling country hills.

88 Rue du Rhone is also the official timepiece of the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts). In 2013, the two will be teaming up for a variety of events including the BAFTA Film Awards, the BAFTA Television Awards, and the BAFTA Masterclass Sessions—a year round program of film screenings, tributes, lectures and debates. This partnership has further cemented 88 Rue du Rhone as one of the most fashionable brands of watches available today.

Though most of us seem to be pressed for time these days, with beautifully made watches like these time doesn’t really matter—because it’s design and appeal will remain timeless.

The 10 best men’s workout shirts to help you get fit in 2023

There are multiple things to consider when purchasing new workout apparel. You want to make sure you do your due diligence beforehand. When looking for the optimal workout shirt, functionality often takes precedence over style, for most men. After all, a minimalist cotton t-shirt is ideal, but it won't look (or smell) so great after an hour-long workout, especially if your working out, outdoors. That's why, in the past decade, some of our favorite activewear brands like Lululemon, Vuori, and Under Armour have developed breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and odor-fighting technology that are now practically must-haves for any exercise gear, especially when it comes to making high-quality shirts.

That being said, not all workout tops are created equal. When it comes to finding the right workout fit, make sure it doesn't feel too tight or baggy around your underarms, your shoulders, or across your chest, i.e., the areas you exercise most. We sifted through some of the most popular brands to select the best workout shirts that are as practical as they are fashionable. Here are our top picks for the best men's workout shirts of 2023.
