We had Mike (@mikeswatches), our resident watch aficionado, bust out a quick list of some of the best summer watches you can be sporting this year.
We’ve finally made it to summer! We’ve put the parkas away, we’re hardly wearing socks, summer work hours have kicked in, and we’re spending more time out and about enjoying the sun. Whether you’re spending weekends by the beach, jet setting to Europe, or just sipping mojitos on the patio, you need the perfect watch to get you through all of your summer adventures until Labor Day kicks in. We’re talking watches that are water resistant, stylish and able to withstand whatever adventures you throw their way.
With wedding season in full flight and rocking a tux, you need a watch that will fit the outfit and set you apart from everyone else. This Rose Gold with Black Dial watch, the Corniche Heritage 40, is a great mix of style and class with its black alligator strap. Priced at $365, the watch won’t break the bank and also comes in three other color configurations to suit your personal style.
Dive watch meets chronograph, aka the perfect combination in a watch. What if you add in that it’s charged by the ample sunshine? The Seiko SSC017 watch will actually charge itself while you’re laying by the pool or playing beach volleyball! This blue-black bezeled chronograph is water resistant to 200 meters, with a 60-minute quartz chronograph, it’s the perfect go-to for water sports coming in around $200.
You can’t talk about a great watch for doing anything without mentioning the Rolex Submariner 114060 or SubC. Whether swimming, out at the farmers market, or traveling, this is the ONE watch you need. The current model has a beautiful ceramic (Cerachrom) bezel, and comes in either a date or no date configuration. Worn with the metal bracelet, braided perlon, NATO-style or even a rubber strap, this is the PERFECT watch. More on that in a later post…
