#1 Rolex Cosmograph Daytona
Unlike other commendable watch brands, ROLEX timepieces can withstand the most extreme water pressures, temperatures, and anything you may experience in life, in the wilderness, or on the water.

#4 Sportfisher Black Black Dial
Hook + Gaff watches are designed to be stronger, sturdier and far more superior to other quartz movement watches on the market. Professional guides and anglers have been the true test of Hook + Gaff watches, proving they can handle the rugged lifestyle of the outdoorsman. Hook + Gaff offers exclusive designs including the Golf series and Sportfisher collection which is available in multiple designs: Sportfisher Black, King Tide, Sportfisher II Classic and Sportfisher II MP (Moonphase).
Each Hook + Gaff watch features a left side crown orientation and is made from scratch-resistant sapphire, high-grade titanium and anti-reflective crystal to ensure that, even in the worst conditions, the watch performs at its best.
Unlike most watches on the market, Hook + Gaff watches have a unique crown orientation on the left side of the case to minimize wrist and hand irritation for those who live an active lifestyle. Scratch- resistant sapphire allows the watch face to look new and remain durable even after being blasted with sand and salt, and knocked around in the outdoors. High-grade titanium provides a lightweight body with strength and durability.
Titanium is a poor heat conductor, meaning that even on the hottest of days the watch will remain cool. Anti-reflecting crystal keeps the face of the watch scratchproof and does not glare, allowing the fisherman to be able to clearly see at all times of the day.
#5 West End Watch Co. – Sowar 1916
Capitalizing on Swiss precision engineering made with Imperial toughness, a small Swiss watch company, established in 1885, in the Canton of Berne, a flourishing watch brand based in Bombay with the name of West End Watch Co.
Incorporating the new shock and water proofing technologies in the 1930s, their watches became favorites in the whole of Asia and the Middle East for over 120 years. Never officially sold into the Americas, we feel it is good for the hardy Sowar watch to now be finally introduced to you.
#6 Bradley Mesh Silver
