Watch brands continue to take a look back to yesteryear and find design inspiration from the past
Bell & Ross Racing Bird V1-92 Clean and contemporary in design, this vintage pilot’s watch is rendered on a crisp white dial with an open “three day” date display to conjure the look and feel of a cockpit control gauge.
Rado Tradition 1965 Renowned as sticklers for bold design, Rado has revived one of its 1960s classics with this rectangular three-hander in a polished steel case that sits astride a cognac leather strap. It’s hip to be square. $3175
Tissot Heritage Petite Seconde This modern tribute to a piece first released in 1943 is now reconfigured with a bigger and more contemporary 42mm stainless steel case. $1425
