      At last - Time is perceivable by touch Time to be Touched combines functional efficiency with a playful element. Without a watch crystal and without watch hands a ball is used to tell the time. The ball is freely movable but an ingenious magnetic system always resets the ball to the exact time when the wearer moves their wrist to a vertical position (the position you move your wrist to when telling the time). An elaborate high-quality quartz movement guarantees exact control of the ball which is incorporated in the housing. The compact stainless steel housing and a high quality leather strap guarantee excellent wearing properties. A revolution and a tribute to simplicity.

      A lone floating orb marks the passage of time (within a minute or two). Tap the case and you'll find nothing holding it in place, but don't despair, when things settle down it always finds its way back to the time. It's like reading a sundial - once you're used to it you may never go back to hands. Designed and built in Germany with a Swiss quartz movement. $169

      I use this daily on my Abacus watch to receive news feeds, current weather, word of the day, sports scores, and movie showtimes. It's worked from coast (South Carolina where I live) to coast (California where I was visiting for my stepson's college graduation and wedding) without a hitch. Great geek factor too... :^)

      The walnut rotolog from Nixon is a head-turner watch that looks far more expensive than its $200 price tag. Feels right at home if you are used to wearing wristbands as well.

      Let's face it -- you need a watch. Not a disposable Swatch, but a watch. A machine with a real mechanical movement that can be a lasting talisman of your style. It's gonna cost you, because this is for more than time and you won't be using a battery. It is for craft, precision, expression and permanent value. So instead of buying 20 dreary throwaway watches over the next few years, save up for one. It's a start and there's no better way than to start with this one: The Mazzuoli Manometro. Simple, Italian, unusual, precise, weighty and loaded with taste. The designer, Guiliano Mazzuoli, has designed paper, notebooks, pens and now a watch. Just one for now, this one, inspired by the simple and readable classic pressure gauges found in garages and workshops. The defining style of the Manometro is now available in several variants beyond the dial color choices of the the original: Manometro Chronograph, Manometro Limited Edition with date and bronzed titanium brushed case, and Manometro Sport in black carbon fiber case and dial with titanium back and crown. Whichever version you prefer, you'll get one perfect object absent anything superfluous. Mazzuoli selected a proven Swiss automatic movement with Incablock anti-shock. The leather strap is novel in its screwed-in attachment to the case, incredibly durable, and interchangeable. You can have the basic Manometro in a polished or satin finish steel case. Your dial can be cream, white, black, or blue. Your strap can be tan, brown, black, navy or wine-red. A right-wrist version for lefties places the crown on the left side of the case, at 10 o'clock. Mine is polished, classic cream face, tan leather strap, standard 2 o'clock crown. The chronograph is polished steel only, in black or cream dial and black or brown lizard strap. You can only buy this watch from a handful of dealers, listed on the Mazzuoli web site. It's a large diameter watch but still fits under a shirtsleeve and it definitely cuts through the blingy chronos, loud Rolex golds and multi-button wonders so common in every crowd of strivers. Your kids will be fighting over who gets this one 60 years on.

      Want a watch that can emotionally engage you and set your imagination to other points on the globe? Any Jaeger "Geographic" will do, but the Master Compressor gets the nod. Sometimes a chunkier watch with "complications" is more interesting and fun. But it has to be tasteful, cleverly engineered, impeccably crafted and a pleasure to use and see. A serious watch that will hold your interest, tangible with working sounds and silky texture in every control. Always start with Jaeger-LeCoultre when looking for such a watch. Known best for the iconic Reverso, Jaeger is one of a tiny coterie of watchmakers who make the whole watch, movement to crown. In the trade, Jaeger is considered the watchmaker's watchmaker. Sometime, at least one watch you own should come from a company that is more than a case designer for movements bought elsewhere. Only a few qualify. Jaeger-LeCoultre heads the list. The Master Compressor watches have innovative seals at the controls for robust water resistance. Available in varying levels of complication, from simple date and time to full chronograph, all the Master Compressors share restrained style, assertive form, clear legibility, and smooth automatic movements. Mine is the Master Compressor Geographic, showing a second time selectable from around the world, each time zone represented by a landmark city in the visible crescent below 6 o'clock. Hot and want to feel cooler? Set the 2nd zone for Anchorage. Need some tranquility? Dial in Samoa. Whether your tastes run to chronographs or basic functions, there's a Master Compressor to telegraph your judgment on quality and lasting satisfaction. You can buy on the web but give your local dealer a chance too. Look carefully at warranty policies from online sellers.

      The dress watch. People see it before your clothes. Generic is unacceptable. A social lubricant and a quiet communicator of your seriousness and taste, the Jaeger Reverso's timeless Deco craft will be a lifetime source of pleasure to own and use. Jaeger developed and released the Reverso in 1931 in response to complaints of shattered watch crystals by British and Indian polo players in India. The classic and original Reverso is a single-face mechanical, hand-wound watch that flips 180 degrees in its half-shell to shelter its crystal and put its metal back to the hazards of play. Consider that blank rectangle of polished metal a canvas for the engraver's or enamellor's art. Reversos can do double duty as sport watches (of course! inspired by polo) and dress watches. And now they come in a variety of metals, trim, sizes and styles, from the trim 19mm wide ladies' version, and tidy 26mm original, to newer chunkier iterations pushing 30 mm wide. If you can only have one, consider the Duo -- two different watch faces able to track two different time zones, running off one movement. When I was a kid beginning to read the New Yorker at 8 years old, the Reverso ads capitvated me. I thought it was the coolest watch ever, and vowed to buy one. A few decades of more urgent expenses intervened, but I finally got my Reverso Duo about 30 years after my first pangs for it. This is a watch that hit the market during a dark time, and eventually better conditions prevailed. Owning one is a reminder the same thing will be true again.
