    Sports and watches have been intricately laced together like a pair of sports sneakers for quite some time now. It seems that every type of athlete appreciates beautiful sports watches, from NFL stars to baseball players and every athlete in between. But beyond a celebrity accessory, sport watches can aid you in your fitness journey and help you become a better athlete. The sports watch market is flooded with different options from different brands. One such brand is one we all know and love: Nike. We all know that Nike has long been producing essential sports gear. But did you know that the brand also produces sports watches? Granted, they haven’t made many nor is this likely to become something the brand focuses on in the future. But here’s a look at the very best of them because one of these may be your dream watch? A Bit About the Brand Just in case you aren’t familiar with Nike as a brand, here’s what you need to know. Nike was established in Oregon, United States, by Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman at the beginning of 1964 under the name of Blue Ribbon Sports. In 1971, it adopted the name Nike in reference to the Greek Goddess of Victory and the rest is history. Along the way it bought many other companies and employs over 73,100 employees. Today, Nike sponsors some of the biggest sports stars on the planet and is the world’s largest supplier of athletic shoes & apparel. So what do they know about making sports watches? Let’s find out. Nike Sports Watches The Apple Watch Nike Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) Nike teamed up with Apple to create the ultimate fitness wearable.

  3. Top Affordable Mechanical Watches for Men

    Top Affordable Mechanical Watches for Men

    When looking for affordable watches for men, many people simply don’t consider mechanical watches. Not at first, at least. They first think quartz, mainly based on price. And sure, there are lots of great quartz watches out there at great prices. But there are also some wonderful mechanical watches in the same affordable price range as quartz. Let’s take a closer look at some of the best. Seiko 5 for Military Style Military inspiration is on full display with the Seiko 5 SNK805. A no-nonsense matte-finish face keeps things simple with an inner ring for hour markings. The outer indices for seconds, as does the round steel case that’s basic in the best possible sense. Lightweight and on the unassuming side with a 38mm diameter, this ready-to-go watch feels right at home on a casual nylon strap. And Seiko’s trusty 7S26C movement offers reliable accuracy that performs beyond the low price tag: under $100!     Beyond Bambino with the Orient TriStar When people ask about an affordable mechanical dress watch, the Orient Bambino is often the first response. And the Bambino is great. Both its elegance and its affordability are praise-worthy. But the often-overlooked TriStar (also referred to as 3 Star or Three Star) is impressive in its own right. Branded by three stars on the face, the TriStar has a history stretching back to the 1970s. Orient says they made the affordable mechanical watches as alternatives for those living in developing countries with less access to the replacement batteries needed for quartz watches. Orient has kept the watches old school in style, under 40mm. It has a classic stainless steel bracelet, and a day-and-date window on its retro face. While some models in the TriStar line creep up in price to the $200 range (still a great bargain) you can find a new TriStar for about $100. Invicta Pro Diver for a Rolex Feel Okay, fine, most of us know that Invicta dive watches have been derided as the alternative for a Rolex. And, sure, there is some justification in that, as Invicta has mimicked the looks of Rolex (most especially the Submariner) to create lower-end timepieces. But that doesn’t make Invicta watches bad, just not Rolexes. And let’s just consider the fact that you can get one for about 100 bucks. So, for that price, yeah the Invicta Pro Diver 8926 is a pretty nice selection, both in terms of looks and functionality. The 40mm stainless steel case has solid machining and a fine finish. The aluminum bezel is equally substantial. It’s water-resistant up to 200 meters and the NH35A automatic movement is reliable. While the movement is non-branded, that’s actually Seiko handiwork in there behind the display case back and it’s as dependable as most everything the time-honored watchmakers produce. So, sure, it’s not a Rolex, but still a nice option if you’re looking for an affordable alternative. Get Seriously Sporty with the Citizen Promaster While the Invicta Diver 8926 is a great bargain, you can take a serious step up in dive watches for not all that much more money with a Citizen Promaster Automatic. The Citizen NY0040 is a true ISO-certified dive watch with a depth rating of 200 meters and a high-visibility dial. Mixing brushed and high-polish stainless steel finishes, the case is rugged and looks super sporty on a formidable rubber strap. Inside you´ll find the in-house 21-jewel Miyota 8200 movement. With a 46mm diameter and 12mm thickness, this is a watch that wears prominently and really wants to get noticed. That’s all pretty nice for the price of under $300!   Mid-Century Style with the Timex Marlin Mesh This watch might remind you of a timepiece that would be on the wrist of an up-and-coming executive in the 1960s. The Timex Marlin Mesh is a re-issue of a dress watch we first met over half a century ago. Going seriously old school with a hand-wound movement, it oozes sophistication with a silver-on-silver design scheme. The watch, which was made with input from fashion designer Todd Snyder, has a Milanese mesh band. While the 34mm stainless steel case is muted enough to feel understated, eyes will be drawn to the silver sunray dial with mid-century-style indices. Priced at just over $200, it’s an elegant choice with a big dose of throwback charm. History and Heritage with the Hamilton Khaki Hamilton is always a great choice when you’re looking for something with deep ties to America’s watchmaking history, as the company dates back to 1892 in Pennsylvania. And their Khaki Field Mechanical watches offers a homage to that heritage albeit nearly a century later with a re-issue of a military field watch we first saw in the 1960s. It doesn’t feel formidable at first, as its 38mm diameter is on the smaller side. But it more than compensates for its diminutive dimensions with a classic style that adheres to the US military specs of days gone by. Swiss made today (Hamilton was sold back in the 70s), the Field Mechanical watches has ETA 2801-2 hand-wound movement with a 42-hour power reserve. On a green NATO strap, it positively exudes classic military style and is nicely priced within the reach of most at under $500.   Now, nobody is saying you shouldn’t splurge on a Rolex. Or that a fine Omega isn’t worth the price. Luxury timepieces come with luxury costs because they have value that justifies the investments. You can put a fine mechanical watch on your wrist without having to shell out big bucks.

  5. Best Seiko Women’s Watches

    Best Seiko Women’s Watches

    With inimitable style, accessible pricing, and impressive solar power, Seiko women’s watches have staked out a unique spot on the international timepiece scene. Seiko Women’s Watches 1: SUP252P9 for Classic Style It doesn’t get more classic than this traditional dress watch, exuding elegance with its pure simplicity. A PVD gold-plated case effortlessly complements an off-white dial and subtle indices in place of numeral hour markers. Fitted on a brown leather strap, the SUP252P9 is a watch that’s ready for office duty and brings an air of sophistication, if not opulence, to any dress-casual occasion. Shop Seiko Women’s Watches   At 20mm across, the case works best on slimmer wrists. It presents a low profile, grabbing attention with subtlety instead of size. While you can’t take this one swimming, it’s nice to know it’s water-resistant up to 30 meters. 2: SUT374 for a Shimmering Show When you want to dazzle with diamonds, the SUT374 is ready in all its glittering grandeur. Sprinkled over a Mother of Pearl dial and the round bezel, 28 diamonds give this showy timepiece some serious sparkle. Rose gold adds to the elegance, found on dramatic sword-style hands, contoured on the outer edge of the bezel. It’s also slipped along the center lines of a stainless steel link bracelet. This is a watch that cries out to be seen. It’s perfect for a Saturday night on the town, its flash, perhaps, offset by your favorite little black dress. Shop Women’s Watches   3: SUP399P9 for Bling That Won’t Blind When you want to put on a show with diamonds that’s not too showy, look to the SUP399P9. The white MOP dial and polished stainless steel case complement the diamond insets and hour markers perfectly. On second look, your eyes will inevitably be drawn to the precious stones running parallel to the square case and found on the dial in tandem. Not the slimmest of offerings in the Seiko line, wearing small-to-medium with a case that’s 24mm across. The watch also lacks contrast in its color scheme,  while at the same time making a bold style statement that fits perfectly with an elegant evening. 4: Timeless Elegance of a SUP406P9 Midnight black, lustrous gold, and shimmering diamonds. Each on their own projects sleek style and cool sophistication. Put them together and the result is simply stunning. That’s what you find with the SUP406P9, a luxury watch that, because it’s a Seiko, does not come with a luxury price tag. While the design echoes that of the SUP399P9, its contrasting elements come together to put on a dramatically different display. The adage that basic black goes with anything applies here. This is a watch that’s equally at home on formal outings or paired with a smart-casual ensemble. And like most others in the Seiko canon, it’s built plenty tough for everyday use, with a Hardlex crystal, a durable stainless steel case and bracelet, and up to twelve months of charge in its solar-powered movement. 5: Minimalist Style with the SUP385P9 Here we have one of the most casual watches Seiko makes for women. And its most minimalistic. And, arguably, its most unisex, making this one of the most versatile watches Seiko offers. The cool blue face of the SUP385P9 eschews the finer details found on most of the watches Seiko makes for women in place of the slightest white indices and slim hands. The round case provides just the right contrast in gleaming black, with a 27.4mm diameter that is tailored to female wrists, true, but also works well for men with slimmer wrists or those who just prefer a timepiece with a lower profile. The black-and-blue cases motif blends effortlessly with the silver of the stainless steel bracelet. Wear this one with jeans and a t-shirt or play to its sporty side with workout wear. 6: SFQ800 is a True Essential Hailing from Seiko’s Ladies’ Essential Collection, the SFQ800 is just that. Essential. It’s an excellent selection when it comes to Seiko women’s watches. At first glance it appears like a casual everyday watch with a classic round case. Bold blue dauphine hands pop in contrast to the silver dial, telling the world this timepiece is at home on a laid-back weekend. Things get a bit dressier when you look to the link bracelet. It has a two-tone mix of silver and gold that puts the watch equally at home at dressier moments. If you’re looking for an essential piece that works with chameleon-like adaptation across your wardrobe, this is a solid choice with charm. Seiko Women’s Watches Conclusion With over a century of watchmaking history, Seiko knows more than just a little about watches and the people who wear them. If you’re looking for a casual timepiece, something for formal occasions, or perhaps something in between, consider the Japanese watchmakers’ wide range of women’s watches.

  6. Watch Styles for Different Professions

    Watch Styles for Different Professions

    Certain watch styles are suited better for certain professions while others simply aren’t. But, in any profession, time is money. Which is precisely why a watch is a vital piece of gear for anyone who takes their job seriously. Further to this, and perhaps unfairly, people think they know you depending on the type of watch you wear. Many professionals such as doctors, architects and engineers are lucky enough to be permitted to wear any watch styles they like. But for those who are employed in positions such as athletics, those in the military and maybe journalists might not have as many options. If you’re one such professional, your luck just turned around. Today we’ll be giving you the 411 on watch styles that are geared towards specific professions. Watch Styles for Athletes Athletes love their watches and for good reason. It should go without saying that athletes require watches that can keep up with them and their level of activity. Information is key during training and a watch can help an athlete measure important stats. Brands realized this importance and now athletes have a wide range of watches available to them that will cater to their unique needs. Athletes are simply spoilt for choice when it comes to the different watch styles at their disposal. Brands like Seiko, Rolex and Tissot all offer stunning collections of watches designed with the athlete in mind. Certain branches of sports and athletics require watches with specific features. But this varies from sport to sport, so here are the top three features a watch for athletes should have: Waterproof: This doesn’t only apply to swimmers and divers, but to anyone who works up a sweat during their athletic activities. Chronograph: How else will you monitor your time to check if you’ve finally beat your own record? Scratch resistance: Athletes are a busy bunch and so their watches need to be extra-equipped to deal with the potential bumps & bruises that may come their way.   Watch Styles for Members of the Armed Forces Not just any watch will do for those who dedicate their lives to serving their country. Those who are serving need to have a watch that can keep up with everything this entails. As such, those in the military are limited to the watch styles they can wear. Here’s the lowdown on what a good military watch should possess: Multiple time zones: If you’re deployed, the last thing on your mind should be updating your watch to reflect the new time zone you’re in. Strong materials: You’ll need a watch strong enough to withstand strong conditions. Shock proof: Any military watch worth the name needs to be able to handle the shock, impact and vibrations associated with military life. Easily readable: A military watch must be easily readable in any and all conditions.   Watch Styles for Journalists Those who are journalists are part of a lucky bunch. They don’t technically have specific style guidelines to adhere to. Journalists can wear watch styles that are as unique as their writing styles without breaking any rules. A world of different watch styles is available to journalists, so you can dress up according to your personal style. But certain features will be exceptionally handy to have and worth investing in: Multiple time zones: Do you travel to different corners of the world chasing stories? If yes, you’re going to want a watch that can keep up with your geographical activities. Durable build: If your journalism takes you to different events such as crowded events like concerts or a lot of press events, you’ll need a watch that is as strong as your writing abilities. This goes for the strap as well!   Final Thoughts on Watch Styles As you can see, many watch styles are available to different members of the workforce. Remember to keep your profession in mind as most people like to have one watch that they were daily. That includes on the way to and at the workplace. No matter your profession is, there is sure to be a watch for you with all the different watch styles available. Maybe you’re not entirely sure whether certain watch styles will be able to keep up with the demands of your profession.  If so, why not drop us a comment and we’ll do the research to find out which watches can work for you.

    Who knew that wearing a watch that resembled a cockpit instrument would be one of the coolest things to wear on your wrist? Apparently, Swiss company Bell and Ross watches did when it first opened up in 1992. Bell & Ross is a Swiss watch company that was founded by Carlos Rosillo and Bruno Belamich in 1992. Before they opened up for business, Bell & Ross began as a university project. Bell & Ross are renowned for developing aviator, diving and military-influenced watches. The team boasts a collection of space control and aircraft specialists and designers to create watches suited for professional use. Bell & Ross’ goal was to be part of the Swatch Group portfolio while also ensuring their products are fail-tested in extreme conditions. Buy Bell and Ross Watches Bell & Ross’s watches comprised of four characteristics: High water resistance Clear visual indicators modeled after aircraft instrument panels Swiss mechanical movements unmatched inaccuracy Special features for professionals working in extreme conditions, like pilots, divers, and astronauts A Bell and Ross watch is tested for any reactions to chemicals, UV radiation, pressure and shock before sold in markets. Both Bell and Ross continue to manufacture watches along with Sinn until their eventual split in 2002. Today, they manage their own independent production in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. We’ve prepared this article and listed some of the best Bell & Ross watches that offer the perfect marriage of function and form: 1: Instruments BR03-94 Blue Steel First up on our list is this beautifully dashing BR03-94 Blue Steel from the Instruments line-up. It comes with a comfortable stainless-steel case that measures 42 mm in diameter. Its sturdy and luxurious blue ultra-resistant aesthetic fabric and blue calfskin material allow it to withstand various natural elements.

Every instrument that you see on this watch is a reference in regard to legibility, precision, performance, and reliability. Because of how closely it resembles those navigational tools, Bell & Ross offer a magnificent alternative to the conventional method of time telling. The dial is arranged as three concentric circles. The innermost circle is a rotating hour disc that features a triangular pointer that’s been colored in sea-foam luminous paint. The pointer on the Arabic numerals as well as indices that is in the middle zone tells the hour. The outermost circle, that is elevated due to a steep rehaut, features indices and numerals for minutes, which can be told by a central minute’s hand.

Instead, this watch is influenced by a number of other conventional watch categories. This model has the bezel of a dive watch, a Desert Shield-like personality, and the face of a field watch. What’s fascinating about the BR V2-92 Bell and Ross watches is that it borrows all those elements from other watches while being encased in a thin case.

This model is a simplified rendition of the brand’s purest pilot watch. It even features subtle details that pay tribute to the 1958 MA-1/ ‘bomber’ of the U.S. Air Force. The watch’s distinctive 42 mm square case along with its bezel complement the bomber jacket’s khaki color. The case is also made out of a lightweight, scratch-proof ceramic. In spite of looking solid, the ceramic’s surface is extremely pleasant, smooth and cool to the skin. 6: BR 03-92 BLACK CAMO The latest addition to the Bell & Ross camouflage watches is the BR03-92 Black Camo. The brand decided to go with something unique like an original military-based tri-color coating. It follows in the footsteps of the 2007 Phantom concept and the 2009 Commando collection.

These watches are marvels in the industry in terms of looks as well as functionality. The brand got something right with their calibers and as a bonus there are so many types and designs to pick from. And that’s exactly where a challenge creeps in: which of these should you have on your arm? Is there an ultimate winner? Perhaps not.

To simplify life for you a bit, let’s summarize the main features of the top three Hamilton Khaki Field watches and see if you can identify your next buy. The Khaki Field Mechanical We’ll start off with the mechanical model that certain watch lovers tend to prefer: winding it yourself offers some sense of control over life perhaps? With the Hamilton Khaki Mechanical range your watch has the H-50 caliber. You can have as much as 80 hours of power in reserve, so you don’t have to wind your watch every morning. Buy Hamilton Khaki Field Watches The attractive feature of purchasing a classic mechanical watch from the Hamilton Khaki Field range is this: by no means will you seem to be out of touch with our modern way of life. The brand placed this watch in a striking case, so you’ll look suave wearing this. Also, you can pick according to personal preference, since the brand manufactures both textile and leather straps for this model. The commonly purchased 38mm case is a comfortable size for most people to wear and you can read time even in low light conditions, thanks to the Super-LumiNova on certain parts of the dial. If you’re looking for a different size, the mechanical watches also come as large as 50mm. The Mechanical model can be practical for outdoor use since it’s rugged but know that you can only submerge it up to 50 meters. This is a lower rating than the ones we’ll discuss below. The Khaki Field Auto If you decide to pick the Auto version of the three Hamilton Khaki Field watches then you’re probably after the self-winding technology. And thanks to this brand’s H-10 movement your automatic watch can provide reserve power stretching as long as 80 hours. So, if you keep this one to wear at the office, no need to worry that your watch will lose time during the weekend when it rests on the bedside table. Once again, the brand doesn’t disappoint with its range of strap options. Consider leather or fabric, but don’t forget to check out the stainless steel that’s striking and timeless. You can pick from cases sized at 38mm, 40mm or 42mm. With most models your watch can handle up to 10-bar, so it’s safe to submerge it up to 100m. This makes it a practical watch option for those who are often outdoors, doing sports or hiking. No worries if this one gets a bit wet. On the dial you’ll notice the date feature, a characteristic you won’t find on all the Hamilton Khaki Field watches. This may be a deciding factor for some shoppers? With this model you’ll also find certain parts are luminescent in low light conditions, so you can easily read the time wherever you wear it. The Khaki Field Quartz Here you have the battery powered option on our list of Khaki Field watches. Of course, you don’t have the benefit of a power reserve with this option, but many watch lovers prefer this to other types mentioned above, so this is still a winning option. With Quartz you do have the advantage of having a dependable timekeeper on your arm. This is another Hamilton watch you don’t have to worry about if it gets a little moisture on it; most models in the Quartz range will have a 10-bar rating, similar to the Auto model. Most of the models have 38mm cases, but the brand also caters for as small as 33mm and larger 40mm options. So, pick the size that’s most comfortable for you. Once again, Hamilton caters for all personal tastes, so you can pick leather, fabric or stainless steel straps. Conclusion What will help you make a decision between three outstanding watches? The aesthetics? Or are you after the latest technology found in the automatic model that will give you many hours of reserve power? Take your pick. Luckily, you’re getting a timeless piece either way. Just make sure it suits your style.
