For an elegant timepiece that oozes coolness and mystery, the ZINVO Blade Phantom Watch ($262) makes a hauntingly robust statement on your arm.
The Phantom eschews such mundane chronograph features as numbers on the face, knowing you can understand the index dots on the rim. What lends such motion is that rather than a second hand, a black-bladed, red tipped turbine spins once per second over the matte black face. The latter is protected by a scratchproof sapphire crystal, while an “exhibition” caseback displays the Miyota 8215 automatic mechanical movement driving the gears. Water resistant to 330 ft and complete with a black Italian leather strap that features black stitching and a carbon fiber pattern so you can accessorize with your manly wardrobe – and black!
