Sometimes it can be difficult to tell a want from a need, but life is much simpler when you don't have to decide. In an ingenious move, both boxes have been ticked in a new collaboration featuring Martenero for Tanner Goods.

The companies have combined strength to produce the "Ace" timepiece. It is a pilot watch redux of understated elegance and durable design, making it adaptable to any situation. Ace is visually impressing with large Arabic numbers at 3, 6, and 9 alongside a desert tan face, luminous indicators, a surgical-grade steel front and back, and scratch-resistant sapphire crystals.

The Ace arrives in a limited edition, hand-numbered run of 75. You can purchase yours with the "NATO" watch strap for $610 or the "Single Pass" strap for $580 through Tanner Goods.
