Last time we checked in with Swatch, they were cataloguing the wristwear choices of Bond villains and tweeting up a storm, but it looks like they’ve made a fair bit of progress in the meantime.

The classic brand just debuted five new sport models, including this gray number aptly titled “Sign in the Sky.” They’re not quite as villainous as we would have liked, but you can never have too many stripped-down sports watches on hand. If you’ve given up on the vintage watch hunt—and you’ve got understandable moral objections to checking the time on your phone—this might be a pretty good place to start.
