Field watch – We’ve said this before, but this is a back-woods-camping-off-the-grid type of watch. It features fantastic lume, a day and date display, and a 24 hour counter. Not to mention 100m of water resistance that’s reinforced with a screwed down crown. Shop Now
Kanno – It’s big, bold, and has quickly become a fan favorite. The Kanno is everything we’re looking for in a casual summer watch: fantastic legibility, 200m water resistance, and screwed down crown.
