Looking for a stylish alternative to the slew of steel bracelet sports watches on the market? From Breitling’s 41 mm Aviator 8 Curtiss Warhawk to Zenith’s big and bold 45 mm Heritage Pilot Ton-Up, there are plenty of options that offer depth in both design and heritage that pair nicely in today’s more casually dressed world. All have serious ties to historical aviation—in case you are looking for something to talk about other than your latest Netflix binge—but they’ll also give you a reason to get out of your sweatpants. Throw one on with Alessandro Gherardi’s washed denim shirt, AMI’s butterscotch corduroy trousers and a pair of Quoddy ‘Maine Woods’ leather boots from our most recent winter menswear roundup and you should have more than enough reasons to get off the couch.
