BLUE RIBBON READY

STITCH IN TIME

Launched in Switzerland at the 2017 Baselworld watch show, the Cape Cod Bracelet de Force by Hermès features the saddle stitching used by the company’s artisans for centuries. The athletic, sturdy timepiece stands up as stylishly on a morning ride as it does on a morning commute. hermes.com

POLO PANACHE

The Reverso Tribute Moon by Jaeger-LeCoultre nods to the watchmaker’s first collection in 1931, which allowed polo players to reverse the face of the watch during play to protect it, with one celestial update: a hand-hammered disk showing lunar progressions on the dial. jaeger-lecoultre.com

 

WINNING STREAK

Cartier celebrated its 100th anniversary last year, and to mark the occasion it released thirteen updates of the brand’s most iconic watch: the Tank. This iteration offers a caramel leather strap and an 18k rose-gold case—a fitting look for a day at the races. cartier.com

 

BORN TO RUN

Keep tabs on every time at the track with this deep blue classic watch from the Master Collection by Longines. The topstitched leather strap, the easy-to-read dial, and the stainless-steel case create just the right amount of drama peeking out from a crisp white shirt. longines.com
