Around this time of year, our wrists begin to pine for the warm embrace of alligator leather.

And if you haven’t already tucked your steel- or ribbon-banded sports watch into a drawer till spring, here’s as good a reason as any: the Grand Edition from the Stanton Watch Co.—artisanal watchmakers based in NYC—and it just so happens that our comrades in style over at UrbanDaddy Perks have an exclusive cache of them. They’ve been produced in a limited run (which should set you apart from the usual suspects), with a gold bezel to lend formality to any occasion, and they’ve got a sapphire case back that allows you to watch the 25-jewel automatic movement in action when you’re not wearing it.

Consider that a little secret between the two of you.
