New York meets Atlanta in our biggest capsule collection yet.
MEET THE EDITORS
Last month, two of HODINKEE’s editors, Cole Pennington and Nora Taylor, went down to Atlanta to check out the Crown & Caliber office. They were promised state-of-the-art facilities, lush greenery, and above all, really good food. What they discovered was that, yup, Atlanta has all of that and the Crown & Caliber office runs like a freshly refurbished Speedy.
Join Cole and Nora as they scope out the merchandise (and choose some of their favorites that they did NOT get to keep), see the repair shop in action, and mingle with C&C’s resident human watch encyclopedia, Mark Hackman.
I’m a simple woman with simple tastes and the classic elegance of the Calatrava is my ideal evening watch. With the gold case and black strap the watch goes with just about anything and the 7mm case thickness helps it lay nicely on the wrist.
It’s small, it’s two-toned, it’s perfect. I love this watch. It’s gorgeous, eye-catching, and quartz. I love a quartz watch for my everyday watch because I don’t have to think about it, I know it will be there ticking along as I do the million other things I have to do to get out of the door in the morning.
If funky is your thing, this watch is the ticket. Just look at it! It's from the '90s, but has design elements from just about every major era of watchmaking, but Breguet numerals all the way to those funky chronograph registers.
A. Lange is all about a pared-down, simplistic ethos. It's not flashy and that's what makes it attractive to me, but that doesnt it mean it can't hang with the horological heavyweights from the holy trinity of modern haute horology.
We weren't sure what to expect when Crown & Caliber and HODINKEE first started working together. But after months of going back and forth in email chains, Slack conversations, and Zoom meetings, we knew it was finally time for our teams to start meeting and collaborating in person. And the best way to do that? Around a table full of timepieces.
Through this entire process, one thing has become more clear than ever before: Watches don't just tell time, they bring us together.
