1. Deep within the passageways of Grand Central Station in Manhattan sits a half-century old watch shop that has been passed down to three generations. In fact, only the legendary Oyster Bar pre-dates Central watch within the walls of Grand Central. Among watch enthusiasts it is regarded as one of the finest repair shops in the city, if not the country. Central Watch's watchmakers come from long, storied careers at many of the largest and most demanding timepiece manufacturers. If you're a fan of horology and in New York, this landmark is worth visiting. Now all you have to do is find it.

  3. There isn't a more classic vintage driving watch than the Rolex Cosmograph worn by Paul Newman.

  4. The Reactor Trident is currently on its way to becoming the most popular watch among men and women in the armed services. The reason? Legend has it it survived 2 IED attacks and a suicide bomber. We at Hodinkee decided to put it through more real life situations, things that we go through with our watches every day. We dropped it from a 40ft bridge, threw it against a brick wall, ran it over with a Bentley, and hit it with a hammer 8 times.
