Over the past few weeks a number of different time-pieces have crossed this blog – trendy mesh, leather car-inspired pieces, rubber banded pilots pieces and even an uncomplicated complications watch. What about something a little more casual and approachable?

You might think of colorful nylon straps and think Timex, J. Crew or high-end brands like Gucci, but I would suggest Burberry for this application. Have a look at the Utilitarian featured above. A handsome round watch boasts a finely notched bezel, a protective sapphire-crystal face and a durable nylon strap for practical functionality. Luminova hands and indexes lend light at all hours while a GMT fourth hand keeps you centered as you jump between time zones.

It’s not small – 42mm case, but not chunky by any means. And given the face is pretty classic – you could get away with it just about anywhere. Available at Nordstrom’s for $695. Enoy!
