If you live a full-contact lifestyle then you’ll need a watch that doesn’t f linch from sudden impact
Casio G-shock GMW B5000 Full Metal
G-shock’s bullet-proof 5000 series has been around since the 1980s, but this is the first version to come with a full metal jacket. Heading to a new time zone? This watch syncs to your phone via Bluetooth to automatically update the time. $1049
Longines’ new collection of divers combines elegance with robustness and features a bezel with a coloured ceramic insert matched to the colour of the dial. Our pick? This slate-coloured stunner – because grey matters.
Luminox Navy Seal 3580
The Navy Seals’ watch of choice is now made of “Carbonox”, Luminox’s new carbon compound material. The result is a lightweight piece that’s tough as all hell while offering perfect night visibility through its self-powered illumination system.
Victorinox I.N.O.X. Carbon Limited Edition
The I.N.O.X. has been a by-word for indestructible watches since its launch in 2015. It’s latest incarnation comes in a spacetested carbon case while the paracord strap – a material originally used for parachute suspension lines – can be unravelled to use as a fishing line if you find yourself in a tight spot.
Oris Divers Sixty-five Bi-colour
Bronze is making a comeback, subtly so in this case. The outer ring of the black is now bronze to add a glint of colour and riff off the gold-plated indices and hands, filled with creamy lume on the black dial.
Edox Sharkman II Limited Edition
Christian Redl is a freediver with a difference – he specialises in record-breaking plunges under ice. On his wrist, he wears the Sharkman II, a water- and shock-resistant piece that can handle the toughest environments.
