No Stone Unturned

Sleek watches for him, and chic baubles for her

ABOUT FACE
This season’s big idea in men’s watches: the dramatic dial

1. There’s more to the Tissot Seastar Sport’s jumbo dial than a sporty silhouette. When you’re 1,000 feet underwater, you may find the giant glowing markings handy for keeping track of your remaining dive time. That said, it does have a pretty sporty silhouette. $1,275 / www.tissot.ch

2. If you’ve got a dad who has wrists the size of John Goodman’s, there’s only one thing to do for Father’s Day: Buy the man a bigger watch. May we suggest U-Boat’s limited-edition U-42? Its 47 mm face is so big it’ll make your thigh seem dainty. $6,150 / www.kenjo.net

3. Though it looks a lot like a vintage pocket watch, Bell & Ross’ WW1 (Wrist Watch 1) Grande Date and Reserve de Marche was actually inspired by the very first wristwatches, worn by pilots in the 1920s. Never was the phrase “Time flies” more appropriate. $5,000 / www.bellross.com
