We could all use a little inspiration when it comes to polishing our look — and men are no exception.

William Henry Studio Pocket Knife
For a pocket knife that looks as sharp as it cuts, go with a piece from William Henry Studio. A study in elegance, each William Henry piece takes more than seven months to create, incorporates the work of more than 30 artisans and is individually and uniquely engraved.
Pens by Montegrappa
For more than a century, Montegrappa has provided its customers with a truly authentic and custom service. Using ages-old techniques and traditional tools, their craftspeople hand-engrave or hand-paint an image of your choosing on a high-quality writing instrument. The result is a work of art that’s like no other pen on Earth.
Deakin & Francis Cufflinks and Stud Set
The Sterling Silver Black Spinel Spider Cufflinks and Stud Set from Deakin & Francis add personality and style to any button-down shirt. Exquisitely crafted, these sterling silver spiders are encrusted with black spinel semi-precious stones and ruby eyes. The cufflinks feature a contrasting rose gold plated web, making them the ultimate edgy finishing touch.

Cartier Gold and Steel Santos

Inspired by his friendship with famous Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos Dumont, Louis Cartier created the Santos watch. The rounded angles of the dial, the seamless curve of the horns and the exposed screws made for an iconic watch that inspired countless reinterpretations. Today’s Santos watch features a mechanical movement with automatic winding, sapphire crystal and two bracelets — one steel with 18-karat yellow gold screws, and one calfskin leather with steel double adjustable folding buckle.
Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon

The essential beauty of the Executive Skeleton Tourbillon’s inner workings is obvious thanks to its bold, aerial design. Its look is punctuated by oversized Roman numerals, sword markers and a raised rectangular bridge. With its exceptional power reserve of 170 hours, sapphire crystals and 18-karat rose gold case with ceramic bezel, it’s a celebration of the technical savoir-faire, pioneering expertise and artistic sensibility of Ulysse Nardin.
Louis Moinet Mecanograph

The Mecanograph Calibre LM31 is the perfect marriage between an exclusive Louis Moinet chronometer-certified movement and the brand’s incomparable aesthetics. Its pure mechanical beauty is on display through both the half-dial on top and the display-back underneath. The right half of the dial boasts stylish and emblematic Côte du Jura guilloche, while the left half shows off the escapement, screwed balance, lever and gear train of the 182-component, COSC-certified automatic movement. From the display-back, you can see that the bridges — anthracite-treated and enhanced with 26 jewels and blued steel screws — are adorned with a Côtes du Jura motif, as is the bi-directional winding rotor mounted on a high-tech ceramic ball bearing.

With a subtle blend of timeless elegance and athletic spirit, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris automatic timepiece boasts all the features of watchmaking elegance, including a sleek dial with delicate numerals and hour markers, serrated crowns, short lugs and a polished and brushed finish on the case. Its sporting character is enhanced by the two off-center crowns — one at 2 o’clock to adjust the rotating inner bezel and another at 4 o’clock to adjust the time.

MB&F and independent watchmaker Stephen McDonnell have reinvented one of the most complex traditional watchmaking complications: the perpetual calendar. The result is the Legacy Machine Perpetual, featuring a visually stunning in-house movement developed from the ground up to eliminate the drawbacks of conventional perpetual calendars. Its fully integrated and purpose-built 581-component movement has been designed for user-friendly use. Thanks to an innovative “mechanical processor,” skipping dates and jamming gears are a thing of the past.
