Timepieces that sparkle with bling and technical wizardry now seem to reek of ostentation. Today, extravagance has a much subtler sheen to it, as evidenced by a new crop of wristwatches that come cloaked in classic sable. These stealthy models dodge any sort of “look at me” flamboyance and instead favor an understated attitude that’s, well, timeless.
