If we didn’t tell you that this was based off one of the most beloved British four-wheel drives around, you probably wouldn’t have guessed. But that’s a testament that you don’t have to be a car nerd or possess a driving license to pick this up for your daily wear. A collaborative effort with Land Rover – one of a few made in the last few years – this rakish titanium wristwatch celebrates a revival of fortunes for Land Rover’s Defender, an off-road beast that returns in 2020 with new upgrades and compliances after it stopped production in 2016 due to stricter safety regulations for smooth road drives which in its defence it wasn’t really built for in the first place. What does it mean to wear this on the daily? Oh nothing, just that you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty. Only 250 pieces will be made available.
