I recently came across watchmaker Vestal, who makes original designer watches with a decidedly modern spin. The artists of Vestal use music as their inspiration for their designs, and their music video filled website reinforces this sentiment.
There are a ton of really great watches in their current collection, and one that caught my eye in particular was the $210 Metal Monte Carlo.
This watch seamlessly connects the analog and digital worlds in a sleek modern watch face. It features a beautiful, clean stainless steel case, and a face that incorporates a small analog dial (with second hand) and a inverted grey-on-black LCD display. The monochromatic backdrop to the watch face is especially striking.
Another favorite has to be the $137 Rosewood, which actually features a case which is crafted from real wood, with each piece linked together using a flexible wire.
I also really like the $179 Emery. This watch is one of a series which is inspired by the designs of classic radios from the 1960s. It really does look like an old radio dial.
These are just a few of the unique designs that their talented designers are cranking out. Be sure to check out all of the cool watches over on the Vestal website.
