Ever see a modernist painting you could just stare at forever and feel like you never quite got around to appreciating everything about it? That’s kind of how I feel looking at the Philip Stein Prestige 13-LBG men’s watch. There’s so much here, I don’t know where to begin … and it’s all good. With a watch like this, you will not only never miss an appointment, but you won’t have to get a tattoo in order to wear some fine art work, either.
The dial face, in the iconic Philip Stein oblong shape, is set on a background of black on black gradient stripes. It includes two time zones and the date, as well as minute, second and tenths of a second features. All of these time and day keeping features are displayed in the most innovative way I’ve ever seen. The primary band recommended for this watch, the 13-MMBD is fabric with a subtle black on black checkered design. The Prestige 13-LBG men’s watch case is polished steel and 5-ATM water resistant. Its movement mechanism is 1 RONDA and chronograph with the calendar. The dial window is double curved sapphire with an anti-glare coating.
The Philip Stein Prestige 13-LBG men’s watch retails for $2,370 on the Philip Stein website and at authorized sellers.
