The weather is a fickle frenemy, so the purchase that I'm most excited about for next season won't be another giant, cozy sweater I might not be able to don until December. It's this $80 menswear watch from Brooklyn-based Cold Picnic, which I can conveniently wear now.
I first saw the watch on Of a Kind (one of the images from the online shop is pictured on the right above so you can judge the scale.) The darker version with a brass face has long sold out, thanks to the site's famously small-batched editions. Luckily, the lighter version is available on the Cold Picnic site, and the tone makes for a perfect feminine balance to the menswear shape.
