The Fifth Watches is a uni­sex and very af­ford­able brand­ing by Mel­bourne’s Alex McBride and its time­pieces have big and (yippee) easy-to-read di­als. The num­ber five is the leit­mo­tif here — five de­signs (so far) “from ca­sual to cock­tail”, and each is only avail­able on­line from the fifth of each month for five days. Colour com­bos in­clude white or black face and tan band or there’s a groovy all-black model; the sec­ond col­lec­tion will fea­ture four ad­di­tional styles while the fifth will be a limited-edi­tion model in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Adam Lynch of Mel­bourne de­sign col­lec­tive LAB DE STU. There’s a so­cial me­dia con­test (win­ner drawn July 15) for cus­tomers to win the en­tire col­lec­tion. Fol­low @the­fifth­watches on Instagram and post a pic­ture wear­ing your pur­chase tagged #the­fifth­watches (snapped in the more ex­otic, or amus­ing, con­text the bet­ter, we reckon). All styles are $139. More: the­fifth­
