The company — a one-stop shop for horology news, reviews and of course, products — launched a run of handsome watch straps from its new High Craft-Vintage series last month, specifically in a rich Navy Chromexcel and a rugged Peanut Suede. These straps are tough, durable, hand-finished and possibly the perfect addition to your favorite everyday watch. The new introductions complement the site’s overall approach — since 2011, they’ve published more than 100 videos and 1,000-plus articles — yes, you read that right — covering what they call “value-driven watches,” with a focus on “unique and thoughtful design,” plus top-notch construction to match. Sounds good, right?

And the eye-catching new straps play nicely off other additions to the brand’s product line, such as new colors in Worn & Wound’s easy-to-use Single-Pass line of watch straps. Need a new black leather watch strap? The Single-Pass line is the way to go — for under $90 full-price, or under $80 on-sale.  It’s a heck of a way to add a new, durable and stylish casual watch to your collection — all while simply changing the strap.

Lest you worry about finding a belt to match that sharp new watch strap, Worn & Wound has been thinking ahead in that department, too. Its classic leather belts are made with Wickett & Craig leather (some of the best of the best) and assembled in America. It’s the ideal way to pair up your watch strap and belt without missing a beat — now, you only need rugged leather boots to finish off a next-level #OOTD.

What’s the best way to transport your new favorite watch strap, though? Again, Worn & Wound does the advance thinking for you. The Waxed Olive Watch Roll — introduced back in November — starts with a durable waxed army-duck canvas and is finished off with Horween Olive Chamois trimming. It’s no ordinary way to carry around your watches, that’s for sure. The great part about all of this gear? It’s finished with extreme attention to detail and the sort of handsome, classic aesthetic that should complement your everyday carry — that goes for the durable watch straps and carries through to fine leather belts.

Mondaine brings back its stop2go watch, which is inspired by Swiss railway clocks
The Mondaine stop2go watch returns
Mondaine stop2go watch face

If watches for men were superheroes, the Mondaine stop2go would undoubtedly wear the cape. This timepiece, inspired by the precision of Swiss railway clocks, has made a triumphant return, complete with its signature 2-second pause that's as intriguing as a plot twist in a classic movie. At the heart of this horological marvel beats a quartz movement, orchestrating a Swiss ballet of timekeeping precision. The stop2go mechanism, akin to a dramatic pause in a gripping conversation, adds a distinctive touch that sets this watch apart from the mundane tick-tock.

Should you find yourself at a Swiss railway station, the platforms unfold a spectacle of expansive timepieces. These clocks boast faces as pristine as freshly fallen snow, adorned with assertive black indicators and a vibrant seconds hand. Crafted in 1944 by the visionary Hans Hilfiker expressly for the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), these iconic timekeepers transcend mere functionality. Fast forward to 1986, and Mondaine ingeniously translated this unassuming yet impactful clock design into a wristwatch.
