Filson has prided itself on making “unfailing goods” since the day they began making blankets for Klondike explorers in 1897.
But not until now have any of those goods included watches.
So they teamed up with the new torchbearers of American watchmaking, Shinola, to launch their very first watch collection—consisting of field watches, GMTs and chronographs strapped in their legendarily rugged bridle leathers and tin cloth.
It’s market week here in New York—a time for buyers to stock their shops, a time for editors to take the pulse of the upcoming season and a time for general menswear camaraderie.
We saw plenty of good stuff on the showroom floors (stay tuned for more on that tomorrow) but since it’s Tuesday, we begin by focusing on all the handsome new watches.

But the impasse might be over thanks to Montblanc’s newly unveiled e-Strap, a NATO-strap-esque watch band that allows you to wear a mechanical watch while hiding away all of the touchscreen gadgetry under your wrist.
It would seem that Burt Reynolds has decided to clear out his garage, possibly in order to pay for it—and the rest of his defaulted $15 million home in Florida—resulting in a real treasure trove of Hollywood memorabilia hitting the auction block next week.
An Emmy, a couple Golden Globes, a helmet from The Longest Yard and a few good-looking watches...
Yep, we sifted through Burt’s art, trophies and assorted ephemera to find five great timepieces that you could snag at auction prices.
The gap between the analog watch world and the high-tech one seems to be closing more and more lately.
Which kind of makes sense—it’s not that far of a leap from gearhead to techie. And the latest bridge between the two was just launched this week: Watchville, a slick new app for the budding horology enthusiast.
This week, we finally got our first look at the hotly anticipated smartwatch collaboration between menswear favorite Michael Bastian and Hewlett-Packard—just a few days ahead of its November 7 release.
