Watch your­self

Australian T3 - - TECHLIFE -

Tick-tock­ing style and tech boxes, th­ese pieces are worth your time

1/ Void VO3D The lat­est wrist candy from this re­li­ably stylish mar­que has all man­ner of neat de­sign touches, in­clud­ing min­i­mal­ist con­cen­tric num­ber­ing and lu­mi­nes­cent bars in the hands. With a re­li­able and ac­cu­rate, 2,115-piece Miy­ota move­ment, this is also the first VO3 to give you the date. $229, some­place.com.au 2/ PXR-5 Back after four years out of ser­vice, the PXR-5’s ny­lon-vel­cro strap and over­sized dig­i­tal dis­play give it a nicely retro feel, with the clean el­e­gance of a brushed metal body. An un­der­stated clas­sic. $160, dede­ce­plus.com 3/ Shore Projects St Ives In­spired by var­i­ous sea­side towns, the clean­cut aes­thetic of Shore’s de­signs and in­ter­change­able nato straps make them an easy every­day choice, free from all the ran­dom clut­ter that crowd some watch faces. $210, shore­pro­jects.com 4/ Ca­sio G Shock GA1000 Now in a range of bright colours, this range up­date boasts a dig­i­tal com­pass and tracker, ther­mome­ter, UV-LED light­ing, and time-server sig­nal re­cep­tion. There are few watches techier than a G Shock, but they also work as street style state­ments. $499, gshock. shriro.com.au 5/ Swatch Sis­tem51 Ig­nore the space face for a sec­ond; the re­ally clever bit of this is on the inside. The 51-piece me­chan­i­cal move­ment is the sim­plest ever con­structed for a wrist-watch, and makes this mar­vel of mass pro­duc­tion bat­tery-free and ul­tra-re­li­able. $185, swatch.com/en_au 6/ Long Dis­tance 1.0 The min­i­mal­ist clock faces, mono­chrome styling and calf leather strap make this smart with­out be­ing too showy. Both di­als can be set to dif­fer­ent time zones for easy com­par­i­son, and it’s pretty tough too thanks to a solid stain­less steel case topped with a har­dened crys­tal lens. $458, dezeen­watch­store.com
