It might be a simple color update, but there's just something about the brightly colored hands on Jack Spade's all-black Conway watch for fall. The colors bring Mondrian to mind and the red, white, and yellow is even more vibrant when set against the black dial.

The watch comes in a brushed black 38mm case which is quite refreshing after it seemed like the trend of manhole-sized monsters wouldn't never end. It also has a sapphire crystal face and features a black NATO with black hardware, and day and date functionality.

$298, Jack Spade

Braun is releasing a new range of watches for the year and their latest styles continue the "less is more" tone spearheaded by design icon and former Braun designer, Dieter Rams.

New styles include digital/analog hybrids, new leather strap updates, a travel-ready GMT, and our favorite of the bunch: an all ceramic model. The all ceramic model started as a concept and now has been added to the line as a production model. The watch perfectly captures the "less is more" attitude with with its incredibly clean design that has a full ceramic case and bracelet and comes in black or stone.
