This ‘Blackbird’ aircraft completed intelligence and photo tracking missions from 1960 to 1980. Its modern design and matte black finish that absorbed radar waves influenced the BR 126 as you can it features a black PVD finish and an anti-reflective domed sapphire crystal while its flyback chronograph movement offers pilot-friendly time saving functions. The BR 126 Blackbird comes on an orange canvas strap, to match the orange dial details, boxed with a black rubber strap as well.

Introducing | Xetum Kendrick Watch

Introducing | Xetum Kendrick Watch

From San Francisco-based watch brand, Xetum, comes the new automotive-themed Kendrick. Xetum, led by founder Jeff Kuo, delivers timepieces that are purposely modern in design and feature automatic mechanical Swiss movements. Though the first two watches in the Xetum lineup have more of an aviation influence, the Xetum team looked to automotive instruments to guide the design of the Kendrick. The design features bold red and blue color schemes that grab your attention and are perfect for the summer months ahead, though we see this to be a great all-season watch. The Kendrick comes on a NATO or black rubber strap, both of which pair up quite nicely with the automotive theme. For the NATO straps, we’ve chosen colors that complement those of the dial, and the black rubber strap offers a sleek look to pair with the clean dial design as well as a butterfly clasp closure.

Like all Xetum watches before it, the Kendrick is designed in California and made in Switzerland. Available in three colorways — white with black, black with blue, black with white — it’s available now through Xetum for $995.
