    It’s proving a big year for retro timepieces. From the simple-yet-dressy stylings of Omega’s new Seamaster 1948 to Breitling’s honey-hued 38mm take on the classic Navitimer, many of the watches being released by the big marques this year are as sepia-tinged as they are nostalgia-drenched.

    Some of the most wearable routes in this new retro trend are inspired by the era-defining sports watches of the Sixties and Seventies. To wit: Montblanc’s sleek new TimeWalker chronograph was influenced by cars from the golden age of racing; TAG Heuer’s Seventies-esque Carrera Calibre 16 Chronograph has been finished with motorsport-inspired red details; and Tissot’s limited-edition PRS 516 Alpine features piston pushers. These are all watches that look as good worn with overalls as they will with your suit.
