With Star Trek Beyond now in theaters, we got to thinking about the cultural legacy of the popular science fiction franchise and the influence it has had on watch design.

When a numeral on the hour ring passes in front of the bright orange circle, it appears as if a shadow is moving across a brightly sunlit field. But don’t be fooled into thinking that this piece is only fun; it is also serious horology as befits a watchmaker of Strehler’s stature and creativity.
Over the last few weeks, we have covered watches that we reckon are versatile for different occasions. This week, we are going a notch higher. We will be featuring six watches that we think will look good on the wrists of either gender. …
