In addition to furthering their beautiful core watch designs, today, Miami-based accessories brand Miansai has upgraded their insides with a Swiss-made Ronda quartz movement. This latest line, the M12 Swiss, comes in stainless steel and PVD copper versions—not to mention, a choice between the premium Italian vintage leather strap or the sportier strap cut from durable rock climbing webbing. At 39mm, they're a comfortable, classic size for many men's wrists. Coupling that with a slender 6mm thickness and clean face, there's a design resonance with watches from the '50s. Altogether, they're a perfect option for those seeking something smaller—and with a Swiss movement as opposed to a Japanese one.

Miansai launched back in 2008, by founder and Creative Director Michael Saiger, who wanted to craft handmade accessories for fashionable men. In 2010, their brass and nylon bracelets made a splash, but the lifestyle-oriented label also produces everything from wallets and belts to cuffs and necklaces. While they've been making watches for years now, this is their first iteration featuring a Swiss movement, a nice touch that adds a depth of reliability beneath the handsome facade.

Miansai watches from the M12 Swiss line are available online for $495.
