One of my favorite things about being a GQ Insider are the occasional opportunities to check out products from some great brands. I recently received this rose gold on brown leather watch from Bulova. It's part of their Accutron II Surveyor collection and as soon as I cracked the box, I knew it was right up my alley - an updated classic. The richness of color of the blue face with the sweeping second hand, placement of the date window at the 6 o'clock mark and the positioning of the crown at an angle are all little details that really give this watch that extra something. When I got the email about the watch coming my way, I had no idea what it would look like, yet coincidentally it arrived on the day I wore this get up. Serendipity?
As the temperature cools and the rain continues to fall, I'm continuing to enjoy pulling out the heavier fabrics and the boots as well as the opportunity to add layers to my attire. Folks are probably tired of my ongoing thoughts about the combination of the navy and gray being a go to, but its yet to fail me.
