Yeah, you’ve got the time on your phone (we’ve not heard that one before), but what happens when you’re busy, time checking on the sly when you’re bored sh*tless, or have your hands full? This is when you need a watch. 

Fix up your wrist game with a solid timepiece, none of this Apple watch, phone-on-your-wrist nonsense. We’re talking about a good old-fashioned clock. See our guide below. 

A Bathing Ape Type 1 Bapex – £459 / $581 (approx.)
