At $6800, the new Ernst Benz Chronoscopes for John Varvatos may be seen as recession splurging, but when you dip into the world of premium timepieces, you must think big. Each watch is based on vintage timepieces discovered by Varvatos. Strapping wise, you have the option to choose between crocodile or bison to finish off the simple black or grey faces. These watches are exclusive to the John Varvatos Store in New York City.
