Affordable Summer Watches

Summer is the season of adventures. We take advantage of the long days and warm weather and we get out there. And out there involves dust, sweat, mud, rivers, oceans, trails, swimming holes, thunderstorms. These conditions demand a bit more from our gear than our day-jobs and urban adventures.

These watches are tough enough for your summer adventures. In general, field watches, dive watches, chronographs, and digital sports watches like those below were all created to be more rugged and to handle the outdoors. And while most of these would look just as good in your neighborhood bar, or hanging out at the pool, or watching a baseball game, their true calling is adventuring. These are the watches you want with you on the trail, in your tent, on the water, around the fire, and under the stars.
