This Watch

This watch makes me want to start wearing a watch again. The design is right up my alley.

The IWC Aquatimer Galapagos Islands Chronograph Watch ($TBA) is pretty damn close. Its 44mm stainless steel case goes through a vulcanization process that leaves it coated in matte-black rubber, which perfectly matches the black rubber strap, and compliments the black face. Of course, it also tells time, with a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement, 44-hour power reserve, date and day display, and luminescent elements on the hands, dial and rotating bezel.
