Seattle-based Filson, known for serious quality and rugged handsomeness, just released the beautiful Dutch Harbor Dive Watch inspired by old school models from the 1950s.
Coming in at 43mm with corrosion-resistant stainless steel with a screw-down crown and case back, these things can handle depths up to 990 feet without an issue. They also have a uni-directional rotating top ring with luminous indicators and Super LumiNova accents on the index and hands, making the thing a breeze to read in any kind of dark situation.
With various colors to choose from – yellow, green, dark blue, black, and white – plus straps ranging from explorer-worthy leather to waterproof NATO and rubber options, there's a combo for every guy and every look.
Hand-assembled in Detroit by the same guys that make Shinola watches and featuring a Argonite 715 quartz movement, this is as good as you can get without going mechanical. With a sub $1,000 price tag, the Dutch Harbor Dive Watch is a solid buy for any man who loves beautifully made timepieces, the outdoors, and not spending a ton of cash on a timepiece.
