Off the Cuff: Serica 4512

The 4512, now in its second iteration, offers four dial variants as of March 2022: the Commando, here presented, the WMB with its more traditional military feel, the California and the latest addition to the family, the California TXD (for Tuxedo.)  Regardless of which variant you choose, you will find yourself with one of the most versatile watches out there. It’s versatile not only because it fits a variety of wrist sizes, but also because the design strikes the perfect balance between dressy and sporty, making the 4512 at home hiking, diving, or at a cocktail party.

Off the Cuff: Audric Strider

The Strider weighs in at 42mm in diameter with a lug to lug measurement just under 48mm. Despite these slightly larger dimensions, it is a relatively slender 11.5mm thick--owing, in part, to the flat sapphire crystal. This is a multi-faceted watch with curves and angles in all the right places. While largely brushed, it has a sharp line of polish on its twelve-sided, dodecagon bezel--certainly one of the highlights in this design.
