Of all the great reasons to wear a watch, the most important one: telling the time.

Which is why we’ve always liked the straightforward timepieces from the Brits at Uniform Wares—who have carved themselves a nice minimalist niche in the watchosphere—and their latest series strips things down even more.

The 152 Series is everything you want in a dress watch and nothing you don’t: polished steel, black leather, weighs in at a barely there 6mm thick with a conservative 35mm diameter (the days of oversized cases are numbered). Plus, you can get a little flashier with the rose-gold version.

Oh, and it tells time.
