Summer is here! We’re ready to jet off on an exotic vacation or at least to the nearest body of water. And, of course, we want to do so in style. When picking out the ideal warm weather ensemble, we think fewer clothes and more accessories. A great pair of sunglasses, a dapper fedora, and, of course, the perfect summer watch. Yes, some watches will adorn your wrist beachside better than others. So, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite summer watches.
Five Top Summer Watches:
The Rolex Datejust is a watch of great distinction. It’s practical for all seasons but makes a particularly nice option for the summer. Since its inception in 1945, the Datejust boasts Rolex’s revolutionary waterproof Oyster case. The patented system screws down the bezel, caseback, and winding crown against the middle case. It’s guaranteed to protect your watch when into your favorite body of water, be it the ocean or the backyard pool. Plus, the Datejust is offered in a wide array of dial options that add a fun pop of color to any summertime look.
Omega Seamaster Professional
The Omega Seamaster Professional is one of the summer watches with a serious personality. The dive watch’s initial design drew inspiration from the brand’s early, more utilitarian dive watch models, like the Marine. However, Omega wanted the Seamaster to appeal to those who enjoy water sports as well as those who need a watch that’s stylish enough for everyday wear. The Seamaster Professional is a sportier subcategory of the model. Still, it embodies that versatility that Omega intended, making it the perfect watch to take from a day at the beach to a night out on the boardwalk.
The Breitling Colt has a distinctly sporty design with the robust build that has become a signature of the brand. If you enjoy spending your summer vacation out in the elements, whether rock climbing, white water rafting, or surfing, the Colt is your go-to summer watch. The model was originally designed for military use before the collection was made available to the public. If the Colt could withstand the rigorous tasks of the armed forces, it can certainly endure wherever you summer adventures take you.
The Tudor Ranger is a simple and straightforward tool watch. Its no frills design pays homage to classic military watches with a minimalist function over form approach. Tudor took these vintage elements and combined them with modern features. They include a 41mm oversized case and an in-house movement which boasts a 38-hour power reserve and is water resistant up to 150 meters.
