The ambitious and sophisticated student should consider a watch that will not just make it through school, but also impress hiring boards.

Time flies. With the end of the summer comes the start of a new school year — and all those projects, essays, mid-terms and, of course, daunting deadlines. To help keep scholarly students on time for classes and on top of due dates, we’ve lined up a series of watches that will not only take them into the new school year but carry them well into their career.


Chopard Classic Racing Mille Miglia Chronograph

The striking Mille Miglia limited edition 2014 race edition in stainless steel features a large, 42-mm stainless steel casing with matching fixed bezel and cream-colored dial ringed by tachymeter markings. Luminescent hands sweep oversized Arabic numeral hour markers. Three sub-dials make chronograph capabilities straightforward to use, and a discreet date display window appears between them. This luxury watch features an exhibition case back for the true timepiece aficionado as well as automatic Swiss movement and a 42-hour power reserve so you’ll never have to worry about showing up late again. Model No.: 168511-3036 LBR


Montblanc 1858 Automatic Dual Time

History majors will appreciate the vintage styling of the Montblanc 1858 Automatic Dual Time. This watch showcases the brand’s interpretation of the famous Minerva chronographs of the 1930s. This prestigious timepiece has a large, 44mm stainless-steel casing with a fixed bronze bezel that will gain its own unique patina over time. The bold casing houses a dramatic black dial. Luminescent cathedral-style hands are rhodium plated and bold Arabic numeral hour markers make this watch easy to read. A discreet date display and a seconds sub-dial are positioned at six o’clock for a clean, clutter-free look while a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects the watch face. This beautiful timepiece features a dual time complication which allows the international student to track two different time zones and ensures calls back home are never made in the wee hours. Automatic Swiss movement and a 42-hour power reserve mean this statement piece never needs winding. Model No.: 116479


Nomos Glashütte Ahoi Atlantik

For the student who sees architecture or design in their future, the slick Nomos Ahoi Atlantik can carry them into the workplace. This understated timepiece has a 40-mm stainless-steel bipartite casing with fixed bezel surrounding a dramatic blue lacquered dial. Gold plated, luminescent hands help keep a busy student on track. Alternating Arabic numeral and index hour markers rest under a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Automatic Swiss movement and a 43-hour power reserve mean the student in your life can focus on their studies rather than worry about a watch-fail. Model No.: 552


Timex Southview Multifunction 41mm Leather Strap Watch

You’ll want to raise your hand in the classroom just to show off the clean, sleek lines of the Timex Southview. This unisex timepiece features a generous 41mm silver-tone brass casing with a fixed bezel and a white dial. Luminous hands sweep across bold Roman numeral markers. Multi-functional sub-dials can be found at three, six and nine o’clock. A mineral crystal protects this timepiece while the automatic quartz movement means that you’ll never have to factor winding into a busy schedule. Model No.: TW2R29200ZA
