5. Unlike traditional self-winders, which run down when left on the dresser for a few days, SEIKO's SPORTURA KINETIC CHRONOGRAPH, with power-storing innards, will keep ticking for months on end. $950; www.seikousa.com 6. Danish minimalism meets Swiss precision in the titanium-and-rubber 721 XLTRB chronograph from SKAGEN's Team CSC Collection. $395; www.skagen.com 7. Originally developed for the U.S. Special Forces, KOBOLD's titanium SMG-1 manages a rare feat: It's simultaneously hardcore and hip with the optional tangerine nylon band. $4,250; www.koboldwatch.com 8. With ORIS's orange-trimmed CHRONORIS on your wrist, you'll look like you race Maseratis on the weekend even when you're walking the dog. $2,495 (includes leather and steel straps); www.oris-watch.com
