FrontRunners: Mountain Time
Aspen’s alpine-sport atmosphere and flashy social scene inspired the limited-edition Aspen One wristwatch (www.aspenjewelryandwatches.com), which was assembled by Baume & Mercier for the town’s Aspen Jewelry and Watches. The large gold chronograph, which debuted last year, hinges open at the base to reveal a working compass. The hinge also allows you to alternate between the watch’s two strap styles: ski and après-ski. Après-ski time—which begins at 4 o’clock—is always top of mind thanks to a bold-print orange number 4 on the face of the watch. Priced from $38,900, Aspen One comes with a pair of deerskin gloves designed with a round cutout so that your hands stay warm while your watch remains visible.
