Here Are Some of the Best Recent Watch Releases You Might Have Missed


If you need a break from current events in 2020 — and we can only imagine that you desperately need one — you should check out some of the coolest watches of the past couple weeks. Ranging from affordable G-Shocks to “if you have to ask”-priced Urwerks, these releases run the gamut. Most of these timepieces fall into the “tool watch” category (go figure — it’s summer, and few people have any occasion to dress up lately), but as fall encroaches, we’re sure to see dressier pieces creep up in our feeds. So enjoy the dive watches while the weather’s warm!
