Tough Cook­ies

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 Hy­dro­con­quest

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.
