Steel watches are as honest as they come. No extra things to worry about when moving about. No hidden messages to unload with the slip of a shirt cuff. There’s just the assurance of cool, hard metal—time is on your side. Strap it on your wrist and go about your day. You almost forget that it’s there until you want to know if it is almost coffee time or quitting time or checking-out-the-funny-meme time. The plain confidence of a steel watch makes it appropriate for the week or weekend, on a bike run or first date, a special day or every day. You may never want to take it off.
