Each of the 16 slides ahead represents a brand whose toned-down designs make for perfect everyday accessories. And not all timepieces are created equal, either—look out for Elizabeth and James’s new 200 Series Watch, which takes a futurist approach; Linjer’s recently released design that’s casual and timeless; or a refined, luxe style from the likes of Piaget, for starters.
