We’re sure you’ve noticed the fall chill in the air. The leaves have turned, the air is brisker and your morning commute may have lost most of its sunlight. To prepare for winter, we’ve rounded up four new releases – some from established brands, others from new players – that will cover you for whatever Mother Nature has in store.

For the Minimalist

Maunder XV –$319 – $359

Even though this jacket has multiple removable pieces, it’s built to look like one piece of fabric. Pockets are hidden with small, but tough zippers, and the hood detaches via slick magnetic pins. An inner thermal shell is completely removable too. The “V” model of the jacket comes with 12 D-Rings to attach anything from lights to your favorite mobile camera. Designed in England, this jacket is our pick for those cold, rainy morning bike commutes through London or the countryside. There’s still time to support their Kickstarter for a February delivery.

From the Office to the Bar

Baro – $240-$450

Working in a stormy climate means there’s only room for one outer shell. It has to be good looking and functional for whatever the day – and night – might bring. Baro was developed and tested in the stormy climates of British Columbia: everything from Vancouver downpours to Whistler snowstorms. This Canadian company means business; their jackets have a waterproof rating of up to 32 feet through a two-step process: A membrane is laminated underneath the top layer, while seam sealing prevents any possible leaking. Each design is made with a two- or three-layer fabric to maximize breathability and flexibility on the go. When we’re going straight to the watering hole from work, we’ll want Baro on our backs.

Blizzard Conditions

Nobis – $445-$1995

This Canadian brand is tested in more extreme winters, on the other side of the country, in Toronto. Their line of parka jackets are filled with 100% Canadian duck down and lined with fur, all ethically sourced through a leading national fur association. They’ve created a variety of styles to match anyone’s need for pocket space, sleeve adjustment or overall fit. If you’re in for a snowy, cold winter, look no further.

Living in Warmer Winters

Frank + Oak SC – $165-$495

Frank + Oak is bringing back their popular SC line for a fourth round with the addition of bomber jackets and lighter gear for those who deal more with rain showers than snow. They’ve highlighted a street aesthetic throughout, meaning these pieces are perfect for a night out on the town. Angelenos and Floridians, we’re talking to you: The SC line is designed to keep you dry in a storm, but you won’t sweat while doing it.

Harry Winston adds 7 blinged out watches to its Ocean Collection
Harry Winston Ocean Collection gets 7 new additions
Harry Winston Ocean Date Moon Phase Baguette Automatic

In 2023, Harry Winston marked 25 years of its Ocean Collection with an Ocean Date Moon Phase Automatic 42mm. Now the brand has added 7 more watches to this line, including several updated versions of the Ocean Date Moon Phase and the Zalium line, made with exclusive zirconium-based alloy. If you're looking to add a new luxury watch to your collection, either of these would be a welcome addition.
Harry Winston Ocean Date Moon Phase Automatic Rose Gold

When someone says they're looking for a "luxury watch" we can imagine the Harry Winston Ocean Date Moon Phase Automatic 42mm Rose Gold Limited Edition as being what they envision in their mind. This watch, truly the epitome of high-end is made with 18K rose gold and features a gem-set dial, bezel, and bracelet all adorned with sparkling diamonds. On this watch is a moon phase display along with the date, hours, and minutes arranged in an asymmetrical layout through overlapping registers. Each of the 978 diamonds was very obviously applied to the watch with the utmost precision rather than just being thrown on there simply for aesthetics. If exclusivity is your thing, you'll be happy to hear that only 5 of these are available.

Breitling, basketball player Giannis Antetokounmpo deliver gorgeous green chronomats
Breitling gets sporty with Giannis Antetokounmpo collaboration
Breitling Giannis Antetokounmpo chronographs

Breitling has just scored big time on the watch market court by partnering with basketball player Giannis Antetokounmpo, or "Greek Freak" as he's come to be known. The Breitling ambassador and the brand itself have created two new Chronomat models that will be available to the public, as well as an exclusive watch designed solely for the NBA star (because why not?)

Despite his towering frame, which measures almost 7 feet tall, Antetokounmpo was heard at a Breitling event talking about what his dream watch would be, and it wasn't all that big. He settled on a 41mm stainless steel piece with an icy-blue dial. However, his recent collaboration with the Swiss watchmaker looks quite different. Perhaps they deemed it necessary to appeal to a wider audience, though icy-blue dials are nothing to scoff at.

The new MoonSwatch Mission on Earth watches offer a colorful, creative twist
MoonSwatch Mission to Earth gets 3 new editions
Swatch Mission to Earth Lave dial

Will Omega and Swatch ever run out of ideas for their MoonSwatch collaborations? Well, just like how the universe is infinite, it appears this partnership may be as well. Previously, MoonSwatch models represented all the major celestial bodies in our solar system, from the Sun to Mars, and all the way up to Pluto, as well as a few special editions like a model with Moonshine gold-plated seconds hands, and one featuring Snoopy. For a long time, Omega and Swatch have sparked curiosity and desperation, with fans left wondering what exactly the new watches will look like, and the wait is finally over.

Omega and Swatch have released 3 new MoonSwatch watches, but this time, these models stay a little closer to home, as they take inspiration from our own planet. The new trio, part of the Mission to Earth series, are based on the natural wonders of our planet as seen from space: Lava, Polar Lights, and Desert.
