Seiko watch

Watches, like everything in fashion, can go terribly wrong. We need only reference the watches of rappers and compensating celebrities, adorned with enough diamonds to have tangible impacts on Antwerp economy. In the end, all watches do one thing and one thing only: tell time. Seiko, forever the maker of the everyman’s watch, does it just as well any. A simple handsome analog face set in a metal case contains all the basic functions: stopwatch, calendar date, luminous dials and waterproof to over 300 feet. A durable and comfy fabric strap keeps it on your extremity. And for the price of one of those iced-out watches, you can buy it and a two bedroom/two bath walk-up condo in Manhattan. $179

Lum-Tec Combat B4 Watch

Lum-Tec Combat B4 may sound like a fictional gun from a James Cameron movie but it’s a watch. Before you’re disappointed, have a look–all their watches feature a luminescence technology that blows Indiglo out of the water. They use “superluminova photoluminescence” (yay syllables!) in their MDV Technology, which produces an intensely bright glow. The face of the Combat B4 is beautifully utilitarian, recalling a special ops military aesthetic that will make you want to perform midnight recon missions from a zodiac while saying things like “niner” and “foxtrot” and “dingo bongo”. They’re made in the USA, it’s got a lifetime battery replacement warranty too. $595

Suunto Core Wristop Computer | Cool Material

I honestly prefer a bit of analog on my wristwatches.  Oh well, this suunto looks pretty killer none the less.  Still digging my Marathon Gsar though.  Just saying

Suubto’s Core Computer watch is an impressive device: altimeter accurate to fractions of a foot, compass that guides you with commands, barometer and temperature gauges, the list goes on. We’re half-expecting next year’s model to have random go-go gadget arms and time travel. $349

Numa edition Doxa Sub

Clive Cussler writes easy reading, mildly technical adventure thrillers.  Tom Clancy says that Clive Cussler is what he reads.  This watch is absolutely gorgeous, and is dedicated to the agency that Clive Cussler’s older series characters work for – NUMA.   Oh, by the way, Doxa is the brand of dive watch the older main character wears throughout t he books, an orange faced older vintage Doxa Sub dive watch.   I would like to see the doxa sub 800 in a pvd style and I’d be sold.  The 800 has tritium hands.

Bell & Ross Vintage Collection

Take a trip back in time with the Bell & Ross Vintage Collection ($TBA). Best known for their incredibly stylish square cased watches, the Vintage Collection harkens back to a golden age of aviation, when autopilot consisted of a stick against the yoke and digital instruments were little more than a pipe dream. Features include round cases, oversized hour indicators, and vintage leather straps that look the part.

Maple Leaf GSAR Marathon Watch Company Ltd

Marathon Maple Leaf GSAR

My favourite wrist watch this spring.  Marathon Maple Leaf GSAR.  I put the original Tissot  T-touch on the shelf and have been sporting this rugged “tool-watch” Paddle boarding and on Rappel fires in Alaska.  Limited to 500 pieces and very few available to the public, this particular style with the Maple Leaf at 1200 was commissioned for the Canadian Search and Rescue Technicians.  Hunt it down on the web.  Canadian company, manufactured in Switzerland.  I have a  Maratac Nato strap in black to keep it on.  Not the most exclusive or expensive watch out there but the best I could afford.  Completely geeking out on the GTLS tritium tube luminosity…no need to charge it with a light to see the time.  Enjoy.
