G-Shock 40th Anniversary Recrystallized

The G-Shock 40th Anniversary Recrystallized is a limited edition collection within the square-shaped 43.2 mm x 13 mm case from the Full 5000 lineup. This limited edition was released in 2023 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the G-Shock brand (dating back to 1983). The watch features a stainless steel case and bracelet (resin bracelet on the all-black model) that has been treated with a unique recrystallization and deep-layering hardening process that makes the surface three times harder than ordinary stainless steel. The silver and gold, fully metallic models, feature solar-powered Bluetooth timekeeping equipped movement modules, with backup multi-band 6 Atomic timekeeping, whereas the black model does not offer solar, Bluetooth, or Atomic technology. $870/$300 


Heuer Autavia Israel Defense Force

The Heuer Autavia Issued to the Israeli Defense Force  (Ref. 113.603) is a collectible watch that was produced in the 1970s and 1980s for use by the IDF. The watch is characterized by its 41 mm cushion-shaped case with a black PVD coating, tropical “tiger-stripe” effect dial, and count-up bezel. This watch has been fully serviced, though you can still see the wear on the original anodized aluminum bezel insert. Lume has likely been restored for the hour indices, though it’s mostly missing in the center of the hour and minute hands. The issue marking on the caseback has been erased. A Buren 12 automatic movement powers the time, date, and chronograph functions. A Bulang and Sons textile strap made from a vintage military jacket is included. $8,500
