Watches are more than just fashionable luxury accessories. They are also helpful, especially when one is outdoors. This is due to the fact that they do not need to be charged and can survive the elements. However, only certain timepieces have the perfect combination of rugged materials and essential complications to be suitable for a summer adventure. Learn about all of the incredible timepieces ready to be your new companion in our Swiss Watch Gallery showrooms.
Road Trip Ready Comfort
Summer is a great time to go on a road trip. The national parks are open, the schools are closed, and the world is ready for you to seize the day. Watches make fantastic copilots as they can keep time no matter what. For the ideal road watch, there are a few boxes you should always check. First, you want comfortable yet durable materials. The sweat and heat of an 8-hour ride can hurt a watch. Second, it needs complications like a GMT that shows the time in multiple time zones.
The Omega Speedmaster has this and more. With its sleek black design and comfortable nylon strap, it’s exceptional for everyday outfits. With its myriad of helpful complications including a GMT and central second hand, it has the practicality to match. There’s a reason why it was the first watch worn on the moon.
If Nautical Nonsense is Something You Wish
In the hot weather, you will want to take a swim. There are plenty of watches with water resistance and other sea-friendly features. Diving watches, for example, are made for swimmers. They usually have a stylishly stainless steel watch that allows them to survive the abyss. A chronograph gives it a stopwatch function that allows swimmers to measure their speed. They often have a blue color scheme that evokes a nautical aesthetic.
This fantastic timepiece variety is displayed in this Carl F Bucherer Traveltec watch. With its gorgeous deep azure dial and band, it has an elegant and enchanting design. It also has a quick-to-read chronograph to ensure precise measurements.
Camp Under the Stars
Summer is ideal for camping. Now that all of winter’s ice has finally thawed, most national parks are open to allow campers from all over to take in nature’s beauty. It’s difficult to tell time without electricity, especially in the dark. Luckily, some watchmakers have invented watches that can be read in the dark using “luminosity” watch hands. In these pieces, the hands glow in the dark so you can read the time even in a dark tent.
This Girard-Perregaux Laureato is a modern marvel. Its carbon case and high-quality rubber strap make it more durable than most, which ensures it will survive anything nature throws at it. Not only is it stylish, but it also has a myriad of complications including a chronograph, GMT, and date.
