Whether you live somewhere warm 12 months out of the year or you wait and wait for summer to roll around, we can all agree that there’s nothing quite like boating on a nice, hot day. Whether you plan to take a calming sail or participate in some extreme water sports, there’s a luxury timepiece for every journey. Take a look at some of our favorites.
Parmigiani Pershing 005
A bold and sporty watch, the Parmigiani Pershing 005 is water-resistant up to 200m. The strap comes in leather, steel and rubber (which we’d recommend for serious boaters!). When the watch is turned over, the case back is engraved with a Pershing boat, symbolic of Parmigiani’s ties to the sea.
Tissot Sailing Touch
With a regatta countdown, meteorological forecasting and a tide calculator, the Tissot Sailing Touch is perfect for a day on the water. The safety clip keeps it from falling in the water and the extension ensures it will fit over all of your wet-weather gear.
Made to withstand emergence in saltwater, the Nixon Supertide features a stainless steel case with a polyurethane and silicone casing. This piece is also perfect for surfers as the rhythm of the tide at over 270 beaches is displayed in detail on the watch face.
Oris Aquis Depth Gauge
The Oris Aquis Depth Gauge is the first of its kind, measuring depth by allowing water to enter into the timepiece. The watch is water-resistant up to 500 meters which makes it perfect for even the most serious divers. And, though the watch only measures in meters, there’s a conversion scale on the back so you can see how far down you are in feet.
Suunto Elementum Ventus
A sophisticated timepiece made to compliment a sophisticated yacht, the Suunto Elementum Ventus features a compass, barometer, sailing timer and weather prediction capabilities. Elegant, stylish and functional, you’ll never want to sail without this timepiece again.
Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronograph Annual Calendar
This year at Baselworld, Ulysse Nardin announced the release of their Marine Chronograph Annual Calendar which celebrates the 20th year of their Marine collection. Water resistant up to 100m, nods to the sea can be found in the details of the design.
