Look Good in Transit with Travel-Inspired Voyager Watches by MVMT

Whether your trips take you to Dubai or Dubuque, staying on schedule is crucial for the modern man. The new line of travel-inspired Voyager watches by MVMT will help keep your schedule running on point while looking good, too.

MVMT was started in 2013 after the company conducted one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns for a fashion item of the year. Founders Jake Kassan and Kramer LaPlante started the brand to combat the retail mark-ups that made other designer watches so expensive. The duo figured that by creating watches with design and construction quality similar to designer brands, they could offer them directly to consumers at a much lower price point.

The MVMT design ethos focuses on minimalism and clean lines. While the Voyager line is based on a travel aesthetic, it’s easy to imagine many of these watches being worn everywhere from the boardroom to the beach.

The Voyager line of watches come with several band choices, including leather, nylon NATO (a material that was developed by the British military), or stainless steel mesh. With a 42mm face, the timepiece isn’t too bulky on the wrist, but it’s still big enough to be readable. All the watch faces are analog, with hands that blend subtly into the background. And with 10ATM of water resistance, you can take these in the pool or shower without any hassle. The nylon NATO band runs under the face of the watch, which keeps the face off your wrist and prevents that irritating sweaty spot that can form.

And because the bands are interchangeable, you can also update your watch every time you want to try a new look.

Out of all the timepieces in the Voyager category, one of the most intriguing and attractive is the Outback, which features a leather band and red-tipped watch hands. The Eclipse, on the other hand, is the flamboyant uncle, featuring a gold stainless steel band and gold second hand. Of the less-audacious variety, the Onyx is subtly practical and also comes with a comfortable nylon NATO band.

The brand launched originally with six models based around one design. They now have four lines of men’s watches and two lines for women, all of which are priced at a fraction of their competition.

All watches in the MVMT Voyager collection retail for under $150. For more information or to get your own, check out their website

Doxa’s Sub 200T watch is a new, smaller version of the Classic 300 design
Doxa introduces smaller version of Sub 300
Doxa Sub 200T series

Doxa watches aren't exactly the word on the tip of anyone's tongue when they think of their favorite brands; however, they have developed their own community, and some might dub them a cult following. The brand recently unveiled its latest Doxa watch, the Sub 200T which has sent a lightning strike through the hearts of fans, as it's unmistakably more compact than the iconic 300T and 600T models. The lack of smaller options has always been a common complaint among fans of the brand, and with consumer behavior veering more and more in this direction, it's no surprise that the latest iteration is just 39mm. The iconic design of the Classic 300 has been shrunk down to something more compact, sleek, and contemporary.
The new Doxa Sub 200T has a color for every taste

On top of that, the kaleidoscope of color options available from Doxa watches will surely satisfy every taste, from those who like bright and sporty models to those who prefer something a little more classic and subdued. The dial features a sunray-finished design with a luminous sunburst effect, and it comes with two strap options: a stainless steel bracelet with a "beads of rice" design and an FKM rubber strap that comes with folding clasps and ratcheting wetsuit extensions.

Hublot’s sapphire Big Bang gets an icy new color
Hublot reveals new Big Bang in Glacier Blue
Hublot Big Bang in Glacier Blue

The newest addition to the Hublot MP-11 collection is a formidable presence, measuring a whopping 45mm in diameter and 14.4mm in thickness, so you'll need some major confidence if you want to sport this beast on your wrist. The inaugural Sapphire Big Bang was introduced in 2016 and since then the brand has delighted fans with an array of color iterations, from other sapphire colors to purple and orange. Now, Glacier Blue has been introduced, just in time to keep you cool this summer (in attitude, not temperature, unfortunately.)
Hublot: The Big Bang MP-11 in Glacier Blue

This Big Bang MP-11 features a 14-day power reserve, which is achieved through seven series-coupled barrels arranged in a horizontal configuration, and all of that can be viewed by the wearer. The truly vibrant Glacier Blue (seriously, the blue is so bright you'll feel like you're about to start seeing your breath) is made with a fresh chemical composition but still shares the same properties as sapphire: luminous, and able to withstand scratches.
Technical specifications
This Hublot watch will leave you completely mesmerized for several hours before you even think about the technical specifications, though there are some exceptional details to go over. Inside this MP-11 is the HUB9011 Manufacture manual-winding skeleton power reserve movement. As we mentioned above, there are seven series-coupled barrels, but they've been arranged in a coaxial and vertical configuration so the watch is able to maintain a super slim profile of just 10.9mm. All tied together like a bow on top is the blue transparent structured rubber strap with a titanium deployant buckle clasp.
